Description from the publisher:
The award-winning debut in the Highland Legends Series:
Isobel MacInnes wakes up in present-day California, lunches in medieval Scotland, and by ten days’ end, falls in love with a man and his country, only to lose them in a heart-wrenching twist of fate . . .

Found in the arms of her second soul mate . . .

Forced to balance the delicate strands of time between two millennia . . .

Shocked by revelations rewriting the very foundations of history . . . of everything.

Isobel, a rising-star archaeology student, is dropped into two ancient worlds without warning . . . or her permission. Her fiery spirit resists the dependency thrust upon her. Amid frustration at her lack of control, she helplessly falls in love. Twice.

She struggles to adjust to the unimaginable demands of two leaders of men—a laird in the thirteenth-century Highlands and a Pict chieftain in a more ancient Scotland. Isobel transforms from an academic, hell-bent on obtaining archaeological recognition, to a woman striving to care for those she loves, and ultimately . . . into a fearless warrior risking everything to protect them.

Scorching (explicit) sex scenes.
Fire extinguisher highly recommended.
I wanted to share a couple of my favorite lines:
LOVE:  “This shipwrecked soul has found home.”

QUOTE:  “Sometimes our emotions rule us.  How we handle the consequences…defines us.”

HILARIOUS:  “I unfurled my cocky smartass flag to fly at full mast.  “Sylvester got that tongue, Tweety?”

This is the first book in the Highland Legends series.  They do need to be read in order.

This is a love triangle like no other that you may have read.  Isobel, Iain, and Velloc live in completely different circumstances and yet fate, magick, angels… somebody… has decided that Isobel is fated to be with both of these men as the perfect soul mate to each of them.  Isobel is from 21st century America, Iain is from 13th century Scotland, and Velloc is from 1st century Scotland as a leader of one of the Pict tribes.  So how do they meet and how does a small blonde travel in time to reset the history of mankind?

I received this book close to a year ago through NetGalley.  For one reason or another, reading it kept getting pushed back and pushed back.  I could kick myself!  This story had it all:  love, lust, history, philosophy, fun, and a few tears.  Ultimately it is a love story… one love story… one woman loving her men and her clans.  .  I think I may have left pieces of my heart in Scotland's past.

I cannot wait to start the second book and continue diving into the rest of this series.
