Cat McLean grew up with a strange family saying about a portal to the past, and when she returns for a visit to her Scottish ancestral home, strange takes on an entirely new meaning. She might feel an instant connection to the drop dead gorgeous Scot she encounters, but you’d think she’d remember sleeping with him.

Angus has waited for his one true love for nine long years. He is not about to let her go again, even if she has picked up some odd customs in her absence. Time travel is impossible…right? Then again, true love conquers all, or so they say.

Deja vu or something more?

This is the first book by Raven McAllan I’ve ever read and I’m glad I remedied that. Her writing is interesting and kept my attention. The characters are rich and defined. I felt like I was in Scotland with the pair.

Cat and Angus are unique characters. I’ve read time travel books and liked them. This book was no different. I really felt transported. Now there were a few times I had to go back and reread to make sure I understood what was happening, but it wasn’t a problem. I could see Angus in my mind and it was so worth the time. As much as Cat could be cantankerous, I liked her, too. She’s got pluck. Okay, so I don’t know if I would’ve believed some tale passed down in my family, either. I liked her apprehension and how she reacted to Angus. She had me in stitches. The romance swelters and the characters are great.

If you want a book that will make you laugh and heat up the screen, then this might be the book for you.
