Fate's Monolith Well at least this was an inexpensive read Kindle bargain It also has some of the oddest word usage that I ve encountered I shouldn t really criticise, as that s great for my vocabulary, but I m trying to work out how to get fructify into a sentence in everyday English, and it was used at least two times in this not overly long novel So many words had me hitting the dictionary function on my kindle as they were used in very odd ways, the kindle dictionary and I were luckily in agreement on Well at least this was an inexpensive read Kindle bargain It also has some of the oddest word usage that I ve encountered I shouldn t really criticise, as that s great for my vocabulary, but I m trying to work out how to get fructify into a sentence in everyday English, and it was used at least two times in this not overly long novel So many words had me hitting the dictionary function on my kindle as they were used in very odd ways, the kindle dictionary and I were luckily in agreement on pretty much all A week and a bit after reading, I m scraping for an example But this heroine never puts on her clothes she always adorns them Ok you adorn yourself with clothes but the usage just was overly odd and at times clumsy and annoying All in all, an underwhelming read, but worth a dollar A young girl is pulled from 1800 s America, to 8th Century Scotland As her name was the same as the Laird s promised bride, after her rescue on arrival all sorts of confusion developes.It is a good story, again with Bourn and MacLomain connection.I reviewed this book after reading this episode as part of The MacLomain Series 1 4. Arianna Broun, A Scottish Born Colonial American Has Been Haunted By The Reoccurring Dream Of A Phantom Scottish Warrior Her Infatuation With The Dream Intensifies Until All Hallows Eve, When The Veil Between The Worlds Is At Its Thinnest After Several Bizarre Encounters She Runs To Her Safe Haven Deep In The Woods When Dawn Comes Too Early, Arianna Is Eager To Go Home But Fate Has Other Plans Laird Iain Mac Lomain Has Long Awaited The Arrival Of His Promised Bride She Claims To Not Be The Woman Intended For Him But She Fits The Description Given Him Of Her, All Fire And Defiance That Defiance Will End Up Costing Them Everything And Rips Them Apart However, A Scottish Chieftain With Magic At His Disposal Is Capable Of Most Anything Will He Hold Arianna In His Arms Again Or Is She Lost To Him Forever Only Time Will Tell although a time travel book, I found this book very enjoyable The time travel was in the past, from 1700 s back to much earlier in Scotland. Enjoyed it Omg If you haven t read Sky s series of sexy Highlander, beyond hot Vikings who are related to said sexy Highlanders you are sadly missing out So much intrigue Descriptive writing And love stories You NEED to read these books Enjoy I know you will. Couldn t get into this at all, really slow start and I just couldn t dredge up the enthusiasm to keep going I might come back to it another time and try again but for now it s a no.
