Review: To Conquer a Scot (Time-Traveler's Highland Love #1) by Tamara Gill

Time-traveling isn’t what Abigail Cross had in mind for her Scottish vacation, nor was a potential marriage to the Laird Aedan Macleod. The fact that the obnoxious, yet hot, and definitely sexy Highlander sees the world very differently than she does, is beside the point.

Aedan Macleod knows what he wants in a wife, and Abigail certainly doesn’t meet his Highland standard, even though he must rein in his desire, because beautiful, opinionated Abigail would never suit as a laird’s wife.

Tempers flare yet passion is undeniable, as Abby navigates her way in seventeenth century Scotland—without toilet paper. When two rival clans threaten the maddening twenty-first century minx who’s captured Laird Aedan’s heart, the mighty Highlander is willing to sacrifice everything to keep Abigail safe.
It's quite an interesting story, but then I've always loved time travel romance. ;) Who doesn't like Scotland? The story starts with a little mystery. It intrigued me right from the beginning. I wanted to read more and find out exactly what is going on. All the characters are very well written and well developed. I quite liked Abigail and also Aedan. Both are stubborn, headstrong, and willing to fight for what they believe in.

Aedan is looking for a bride. Preferably someone who knows her place and will do his bidding quietly, as well as give him the respect he deserves as Laird. It's very important that he marries soon and marry well. His clan's future might depend on this decision. So he is not prepared for his sister to interfere with such well laid out plan. But apparently his sister has plans of her own and soon Aedan will realise that what he wants and what he needs are entirely different things.

Abigail is visiting Scotland for the first time. She just needs are break and also desires to soak in the history. But weather hasn't been too kind so far. But the she suddenly finds herself in a different time. It's so hard for her to believe what is happening but one thing is for sure; she doesn't belong here and she must return to her own time as soon as possible.

Aedan and Abigail never thought that they will fall for each other. But fate has other plans for them and soon they will realise that staying apart may not be possible for them. They are meant to be or so Gwen thinks....

I quite enjoyed this historical romance with time travel. I think the story is quite intriguing, although few chapters before the ending seemed pointless and little boring but then maybe it was because I read the whole book in one sitting and story seemed to be dragging. Maybe I should've taken my time with this book to enjoy it more. Nevertheless, I still loved it and would definitely recommend it to historical romance's fans.

P.S. I received a complimentary copy of this book via NetGalley.
