THIRTY NIGHTS WITH A HIGHLAND HUSBAND
Mayhue debuts with an enchanting time travel that follows the rules of the genre yet is infused with humor, engaging characters and a twist or two.
The Legend of the Glen that compels Connor MacKiernan to care for his sister forces him to break a personal vow and travel through time to find a bride. After discovering her fiance is unfaithful, a heartbroken Caitlyn Coryell wishes on an antique pendant, and Connor appears, begging her to come with him and save his sister. Caitlyn cannot resist and, surprisingly, finds it fairly simple to adjust to medieval Scotland. But she didn't plan on spending a month with Connor -- or on falling in love with the Highlander and helping him contend with his relatives' machinations. When it becomes a matter of life and death, Connor and Caitlyn will have to depend on the magic of their love to bring them together forever. (Pocket, Jul., 356 pp., $6.99)
