Review: Highlander's Challenge

Book Review: Highlander's Challenge, by Jo Barrett


Amelia Tucker, or Tuck as she prefers to be called, latest personal bodyguard assignment turns into one she'll never forget, thanks to a crazed kidnapper, one enchanted fountain, and a sixteenth century Highland Warrior determined to keep her under lock and key. Who will win this battle of wills?

Genre: historical romance / time travel romance

Publication date: September 2015 (re-issue)

Mature content: yes

Review: I really enjoyed reading Highlander's Challenge. I realize that some parts may not be entirely realistic - but then, we are talking about time travel anyway. 

Amelia is a very likeable character and her interactions with Colin are just unforgettable. The whole 21st-century-woman (and an ex-soldier to boot) sent back to medieval Scotland makes for some really funny scenes. I just wished she had not been trying to run off so many times. I do get the point, but after the first couple of times of Amelia escaping and Colin running after her, it became a bit repetitive, and that's the main reason I'm not rating Highlander's Challenge with more than four stars. 

Still, if you love historical romance, handsome Highlanders and the added bonus of time travel, then Highlander's Challenge is perfect for you. 

Highlander's Challenge is book one in the Challenger Series and right at the end we get a hint of what book two, Rogue's Challenge, is about: Ian (Colin's English friend) is requested to travel forward in time to fetch Jenny (Amelia's friend and client) from the 21st century. I confess I'm curious about it, so I've downloaded it too and expect to start reading it soon.

Happy readings
