- This is an amazing time travel book about love and friendship that stands the test of time. I recommend this author to everyone including my library. I just love the friendship and humor between the two women. The whole series is great.
- I'm a sucker for time-travel novels, and this lived up to my hopes and expectations. An intriguing story with strong, lively characters. Glad I found this author!
- An enjoyable time travel book about a warrior and a soldier/body guard. The 21st century female body guard ends up in the 16th century Highlands. I laughed out loud a few times when she used terms from her own world and time. It's an easy read and the highlander is definitely HOT. Just my kind of guy!
- Amazing, I love Scottish and Irish romance stories... Will read again and again... I absolutely recommend reading this if you like Scottish and Irish stories...
- Predictable but ok for an afternoon and a rainy day. The heroine is interesting but the conflicts are not very exciting.
- A little unrealistic. A good story and I loved the characters.
- A good book to curl up with on a cold day. Kinda slow at first but it gets better. I'm looking forward to the next one.
- This storyline was a delight to read. Very well written. The characters are interesting and well developed. This book will capture you from the first chapter.
- I never could get into the characters or the story. Since there are sequels, other readers must be able to do so.
- Amelia Tucker is a bodyguard. She's tough and focused. She's in Scotland with her latest client when things go wrong. Really wrong. After being knocked into a enchanted fountain that takes her back to 16th century Scotland, she realizes she just might be stuck there forever.... but that won't keep her from trying to get back to the 21st century.I won't write any spoilers but I did have a problem with the heroine in the last chapters. Her attitude and her stubborn streak did me in. Plus, I found myself liking Ian (the English friend) more than Colin.Jo Barrett writes a good time travel story that kept me entertained in the beginning. Then as the story progressed, I admit that I did lose interest. I kept reading because I wanted to see what happened at the end. I was hoping for a great ending but it just was mediocre to me. I was disappointed to say the least.
- I really enjoyed the story and the characters. It was nicely descriptive without being overly done. I really liked the story line and plot.
- I would have liked to see much more character development and a little less cheesy sentiments. I did like however the strong female character in Amelia a woman that refused to be...
- I just finished reading it. And wow! This story was amazing. Since this isn't on your bookshelves at the bookstore, I was skeptical to spending $12.00 for an unheard of book. But the description and the review convinced me to give it a chance and I'm so glad I did.Amelia Tucker, or Tuck as she liked to be called, is bodyguard for hire. Currently, she was hired to protect Jenny, a rich prodigy, who's traveling through Scotland. While there, after a botched kidnapping attempt, Amelia finds herself somehow back in time. There she ends up helping Colin MacLean and his friend, Ian Southerland.I absolutely adore Amelia. I always wanted to a read a time travel romance where the woman had fighting skills and smarts and this definitely exceeded my expectations. Amelia was witty, intelligent and daring. She had I-don't-care-what-you-think attitude. But there was soft side to her that made sure to remind you she was still a woman. Colin MacLean is your typical Scotsman, who finds himself falling in love with this strange woman. He had a tough exterior but had a soft spot for Amelia and his family. They really complement one another.This story was amazingly written well. There wasn't a lot of useless prose. There was a lot of intrigue and romance. This story will keep a smile on your face. So, if you're looking for a good time-travel romance, you definitely have to read this.Rogue's Challenge is the sequel.
- I absolutely love this book! I have read this book so many times now I have lines memorized! The story is interesting and detailed and the characters have more depth than your typical historical romance. The time travel aspect is not unique in this genre but I believe it was quite tastefully done. I really love all the characters, Tuck and Colin stand out from your typical heroes and heroines. Their flaws make them all the more human. Tuck is by far my favorite character. She has had a difficult past but has grown stronger from her experiences and is well versed in military arts...not your typical simpering hapless damsel in distress that some romance writers tend to favor. The scene and side character also add to the well-roundedness of the story. There is no way you can go wrong with this book. If you are bored with your typical romance novels or even if you don't normally read this genre, Highlander's Challenge is just an all-around good book.
- Colin found Amelia Tucker or Tuck, which she used as her name in the woods and she became the Highlander's Challenge in every way. Tuck was a modern day trained soldier, wearing jeans and carried a knife and a stubborn head full of independent ideas. She had landed in 1645 Scotland on the Isle of Moll so her ways were in complete opposite of how women were expected to behave in that time period.I loved Tuck's strength of character and physically. The sassy conversations with modern terms and historical words were fun. Colin moved from a man that expected all the women in his life to obey and look to him to for protection to an appreciation of Tuck's abilities, honesty and intelligence.His friend Ian also known as 'Hotshot' adds a fun character with a unique role in the story as Colin's friend. The other people in the castle are mostly sweet and typical to their times and devotion to each other and welcoming to Tuck as a guest. The portal in time gave the story an interesting mix of myth with science to make the time travel possible.I love a good time travel story to Scotland, with strong characters, a good plot and interesting time travel portal; the Highlander's Challenge it all for me.I borrowed Highlander's Challenge from the Prime Lending Library with my Prime Membership.
- I was riveted from the beginning. Definitely not the usual heroine but very likable characters and easy to read. I was not sure how the story would end.
