    Medical intern Ali Graham travels to The Isle of Skye in Scotland to be in a photo shoot and somehow manages to end up at Dunvegan Castle instead of the hotel (how does that happen?). The keeper welcomes her and gives her a bit of the legend of the MacLeod clan and the legend of the fairy flag – a flag with the power to grant three wishes to the clan when most needed. After settling into her bed, Ali dreams of making love with a studly Scot to awaken and find it’s not a dream – there is a man in Medical intern Ali Graham travels to The Isle of Skye in Scotland to be in a photo shoot and somehow manages to end up at Dunvegan Castle instead of the hotel (how does that happen?). The keeper welcomes her and gives her a bit of the legend of the MacLeod clan and the legend of the fairy flag – a flag with the power to grant three wishes to the clan when most needed. After settling into her bed, Ali dreams of making love with a studly Scot to awaken and find it’s not a dream – there is a man in her bed! The current Laird Rory was mortally wounded in battle and his clansmen *waved* the flag and the fairy magic brought the good Doctor to the rescue. Ali bears an uncanny resemblance to Rory’s first wife, whose death he still grieves and he finds it hard to let go and love again. Ali charms most of Rory’s close associates, although her *doctor skills* spook the superstitious clan and they fear she’s a witch. Will the evil priest succeed in having her convicted and burned at the stake? Can Rory rescue her in time? Will Ali find the hidden fairy flag and wish herself back to the future or will she stay and find love in Rory’s arms? The rest of the book is filled with the usual Big Misunderstandings and heated sexual play (a bit too heated IMO, I did not need to know everything Rory was doing with his fingers, let alone all that tongue sucking and hardening of you-know-what). It’s on OK romance and might do in you’re in the mood for a mindless fluffy (very fluffy) romance but it did border on silliness a bit too much for my tastes, particularly her *escape* from the castle tower via knotted bed sheets with not much damage outside of a sprained ankle and bumps and scrapes. You tell me, [image error] Oh and she got the bars on the window loose all-by-herself with the knife she had hidden under her skirt. My last quibble is the redundancy in the text, I’m smart enough to figure out that Rory is a finely chiseled hunk and Ali is beauteous beyond compare the first time around and I didn’t need to be clubbed over the head with it over and over again. I.e. just say he grabbed her wrist and not “he grabbed her delicate wrist”. Or, Rory’s thighs and not his “thick muscular thighs”. 2.5/5 stars and a shame the author didn’t take advantage of the beautiful setting of The Isle of Sky and weave it into her story – if you’d like to see how a master does it check out Mary Stewart’s Wildfire at Midnight.

    Actually I Loved this book but would not say it was Amazing. I thought the story really good even though this story line has been done before.

    Well, Lord of the Isles wasn't quite as horrible as I thought it would be. But it still is in the running for one of the worst books I read in 2010. The beginning was awful, with Allie, the main character - a medical resident turned model waking up in the bed of a 16th century laird due to fairy magic. The dialogue and storyline was just idiotic!

The beginning was awful, with Allie, the main character - a medical resident turned model waking up in the bed of a 16th century laird due to fairy magic. The dialogue and storyline was just idiotic! I also couldn't figure out how Allie and the castle residents would have communicated, as I'm pretty sure that 16th century highlanders almost exclusively spoke Gaelic (and even if they didn't, it would have been difficult to understand each other) and Allie was supposed to be American! Yet, despite the idiocy, I ended up getting sucked in. The book ended up being so bad that it was actually good. Hah! It's definitely no Outlander. But if you want brain candy with hunky highlanders and a 20th century heroine who manages to survive the 16th century without actually being burned for witchcraft (but comes close!), that's what you get! There's also a plot twist in there that I saw coming less than half way through the novel. I hoped that I was wrong, but yep - just about the dumbest plot twist I could think of was actually in the book. *** Methinks I should have read Misfit's review before reading this one (or reread Outlander). It's pretty terrible - I came across it on my Kindle when looking for a time travel romance like Outlander.

C'mon! ) and a strong headed woman that fall in love? It had the makings of being a wonderful read and it was. Would I recommend this book to someone else? You bet. Lots of action, romance, humor, and drama rolled into one. If you've never read a time travel romance before, I suggest you give this one a go. As for me, I'm now starting the second book in the series.

The story line had me from the start, I cried along with the characters and laughed my self to death on a few parts..( it's pretty bad when you have your nose stuck in a book, laughing like crazy and your kids wonder what is wrong with you) I can't wait to read the next in the series..Really hoping she goes on with it for a while.

The cast of characters balanced the story and provided opportunities to understand Rory and Ali better. I laughed out loud at some of the antics. My heart went out to Ali as she struggled to fit in while still managing to put Rory in check when it was needed. I really hope this is a series because I would love to read more about this family. There is so much more I could share but I don't want to ruin the suprise plot twists. Ms. Mazzuca is a tricky one. Give her a few hours of your time and I assure you you will get a nice Highlander fix.

    Well, I have read a ton of Highlander- Time travel novels so it takes a lot for me to fall in love with any new ones. This book is definitely one of my favorites. I loved the relationship between the two main characters. The author put a different twist in the story that I loved and was not expecting. Overall, I thought it was well written and a great story. Hope you like it as much as I did!!

This is just odd to me. The clan benefit from her doctoring and comment on her weird speech, but that’s it. She may as well have never told anyone her truth. -The jump from one event to the next gets absolutely ridiculous towards the end of the book. There’s so much that happens all in quick succession that it had me wishing it would have been better paced. - The truth that becomes known at the end just kinda ruined the story for me. It made everything that much more weird and kind of icky.

    I wanted to read this book because it’s a time travel, which is a favorite paranormal read for me. While the actual time traveling part of the story is pretty good, it’s the characters who I never really warmed up to until the very end, which is a little too late to bring a reader around to that “wow” factor that’s needed to make it a great read. Ali is a medical intern with some issues going on in her job, so she’s taken a modeling job in Scotland to let things die down at home. (Not sure where I wanted to read this book because it’s a time travel, which is a favorite paranormal read for me.

Ali is a medical intern with some issues going on in her job, so she’s taken a modeling job in Scotland to let things die down at home. (Not sure where the modeling came from.) She ends up at Castle Dunvegan instead of her hotel. With a storm unleashing, the cabbie can’t get his taxi up a hill to the hotel, so the woman gets out of the car, hefts her luggage from the trunk and begins to walk, her bag’s wheels sticking in the mud the whole way. Huh? She’s a medical student, for heaven’s sake, with more brains than that. At least I would think so. She couldn’t head back to spend a dry night in the closest town the cab could get to, then make her way to her intended destination? Of course not. Without the fae intervening in the most obtrusive way, it seems. Anyway, making her way to Dungevan, the keeper welcomes her, gives her a spot of tea and a tour , regaling her with the ancient story of Clan MacLeod and the fairy flag, which was given to the clan to use in times of urgent need only. Having finally retired for the night to wait out the storm, Ali is in the throes of the most wonderfully erotic dream, making love with one of those Scots romance readers like to read about. Only it’s not a dream. She’s somehow been thrown back to the time and in the bed of Laird Rory MacLeod. Rory has been wounded in battle, and his kinsmen decide fae help is needed, thus Ali and her medical knowledge are the answer sent to them when they wave the fairy flag. Thrown for a loop not only at the appearance out of nowhere of a woman in his bed, she also bears a remarkable likeness to his late wife, his guilt over her death not abated. He has vowed never to love or marry again, concentrating instead on his duty to his clan. Rory also has to protect Ali from those of his clan who are too superstitious when it comes to her doctoring, things folks of his time have never seen. So begins the usual big misunderstandings that happen in romance novels; the usual high-handed, ignorant priest looking to burn someone at the stake for witchcraft; the make-up sex — which is a little too defined in description in this case — after a fight; and a heroine who can do everything, including escaping a castle tower with a rope of sheets and no injury. Hmmmmm. We never get beyond what we’ve all read before. I actually enjoyed some of the secondary characters more than the hero and heroine. While Rory at times doubted Ali, his brother, Iain, never did. He was her champion all the way around, no questions asked. Ali’s protection of her maid, who is hounded by the above-mentioned priest, is admirable, but she takes her modern woman-of-the-world attitude a smidge too far at times. I did like the twist in the story at the end, something I didn’t see coming after all of the above I saw from a mile away. This book is an okay read, just really fluffy, I guess you could say, with the time travel mode and the twist at the end being the only things different from the norm.

What she doesn Lord of the Isles (Isles Series, Book #1) by Debbie Mazzuca Genre: Historical Romance | Time-Travel | Fantasy Rating: 3.5 After travelling to Scotland on business, the bed of a highland laird is the last place Ali Graham expected to wake up. But there's no mistaking the irresistibly masculine Scottish Highlander whose chambers she's accidentally infiltrated—or the severe wound he's suffered in battle. As a doctor, Ali knows how to heal his injury, how to nurse his body back to health. What she doesn't know is how to heal his heart...A proud warrior and the leader of a powerful clan, Rory MacLeod is ready to fight to the death to protect his homeland. After all, ever since tragedy robbed him of his wife, he has had nothing to lose. Yet the mysterious woman sent to tend his wounds is beginning to reawaken something inside him—something that he'd rather stay buried. But when true passion is mixed with Scottish magic, even the most fearsome warrior could begin to fall... Ali arrived on the Isles of Skye in Scotland for a modeling gig, in hopes of paying off some of her medical school debt. Yet, upon visiting Dunvegan Castle for less than one hour, she finds herself waking up in bed with a highlander hunk she could have sworn was the 16th century Rory MacLeod. Now, adapting to her unbelievably odd predicament could be harder than thought, especially when witch accusations, snooty fiancé candidates, and a bloody kidnapping all ridiculously hinder her new "life-style" on the Isles. And when Ali's past and future truly begin to blend, can her reality finally become the magical dream she has always longed for? This would make a great summer "beach" read since its full of romance, adventure, and mystery. Plus, it features a lot of fantasy (i.e. time-travel, magic, and folklore). But be warned, the relationship between Ali and Rory was okay but not really appealing since Ali was almost annoyingly stuck on Rory's past feelings for his departed wife. Thus, she was not very confident in herself and her feelings were obviously very unstable. Furthermore, don't get me started with their first "bed" scene since it wasn't very suitable (or really believable!) due to Ali's battered/wounded condition. Other than that, the story flowed smoothly and was fascinating when all the dots were connected in regards to Ali's true connection to the Isles of Skye. The side-characters were also very enjoyable and really added some great emotion to the story. So, now I'm curious about Book #2, Warrior of the Isles, and may have to check it out. Likes: In reality, I actually visited Dunvegan castle last spring in Scotland and saw the real "fairy flag". So, throughout this whole book, I was able to easily visualize the setting and much of what the story was about based on my memories - so COOL! Dislikes: I still have this strange feeling that I have read this book before or at least one with an almost exact plot line -- so nothing really surprised me overall and, sadly, I could easily predict where everything was headed way on in the story - so WEIRD!

I don't have words that really describe how much I loved Rory's character, his love and devotion for his first wife was both amazing and a bit selfish at the same time. As the story progresses there is a lot of emotions in both parts and plenty of plots to tear Rory and Ali apart. As you get to the halfway point you kind of look at the rest of the pages and wonder what else there is to read about, but Debbie Mazzuca doesn't end where it might be good. She keeps on until when you finally reach the end you have been through so twists and turns and then finally everything is as it should be. This is one of the few books that I have read where I didn't wish that the author had included more in the epilog, in the end it was a wonderful story and all of my 'what if's' had been fulfilled and answered. In the end 5 out of 5 stars!

My least favorite part of the book was the witch trail. I was so hoping that something was going to happen to Moria and the priest and maybe one of them could've died, but there are future books so I might be get my wish. Also the Epilogue should've been LONGER because i feel like i didn't get enough of them. Characters: Alienna & Rory Page Turner: YES YES YES!!!

Love this as much as the first time.

    Time Travel and a hunky Highlander, what more can a girl want? Have never read Debbie Mazzuca before, but I find her writing quite good. It was a enjoyable read but perhaps lacks just a bit of the X factor to make it a remarkable read?

    I haven't read a romance novel in a long time. This was a pleasant surprise from the usual. Love the Celtic traditions, fairy tale, and these type of men. It was wonderful! A much needed and unexpected treat. I haven't read a romance novel in a long time. This was a pleasant surprise from the usual. Love the Celtic traditions, fairy tale, and these type of men.

    Good read, clearly recommended for timetravel romance lovers. Just one thing... she started out with emerald green eyes, then they were blue, and, at one point, they turned violet! Wow, I want eyes like those! lol

    I was so surprised at how much I loved this book! No disrespect to the author, I simply mean: I picked this up and expected it to be a typical romance novel. And on top of that, it was a "time travel" romance novel, and I have read a fair few of those. This was brilliant. Character development was really interesting and the whole collection of characters felt warm and inviting. I really felt like I was a part of the family, a part of the story and a part of the journey. I highly recommend this fo I was so surprised at how much I loved this book!

When she arrives at what she thinks is her hotel she finds herself at a castle by the same name. The caretaker offers her a room to rest in until he can get her a ride to the hotel. When Ali falls asleep she dreams she is in bed with a man and they start to kiss, but soon she finds out it is no dream. When she if fully awake she sees that she is not in the same room she went to sleep in. Rory MacLeod has been injured in a fight with another clan, when he finds himself in bed with a strange woman. Ali's first thought is to get Rory to the nearest hospital but she is told that there is not one around. She is told that she has been sent through time to help heal Rory. At first she does not belive but the more she sees of the things and people around her, she has no choice but to belive it. Rory doesn't know what to think of Ali with her strange way she speaks and her ways. Rory hasalways put his clan first, even before his own happiness. Rory must marry someone who can bring more fighting men to help the clan. The more time he spends with Ali, the more he gets to know her, he finds himself falling in love with her. Ali feels the same about Rory. Rory will have to make a hard choice between his clan and his own happiness with Ali. This is the first of Ms. Mazzuca's The MacLeod's series. It is a great read. The mixture of adventure, a very hot highlander and a touch of Fairy magic makes this a very entertaining story. Well worth your time. And the surprise close to the end of the book makes it even better. You will not be disappointed in this book. After reading it I put Ms. Mazzuca on my auto buy list. When April get here run to the nearest book store to pick this book up. And as an added bonus it has a great price. The next installment of the MacLeod's series will be out in May of 2011.

    While the story line has been done before, like a lot, I have to say I did enjoy this. It wasn't original by any means in structure. We have a woman visiting Scotland, with a medical background, who finds herself thrust back in time to meet a highlander. Ringing any bells? Throw in she's unknowingly a twin. Ironically, I just read A Laird for All Time, and while Lord of the Isles is much, much better, the stories are ridiculously homogeneous. Putting that aside and judging the book on its own me While the story line has been done before, like a lot, I have to say I did enjoy this. It wasn't original by any means in structure.

Ironically, I just read A Laird for All Time, and while Lord of the Isles is much, much better, the stories are ridiculously homogeneous. Putting that aside and judging the book on its own merit, like I said, I did enjoy it. I think the character were strong and didn't take themselves too seriously, with subtle humor found at each others expense. That was really well done. The love interest was a decent build, but a little overboard on the cat and mouse chase, yet charming enough to overlook it for the most part. The pace was set fast enough to not loose interest, but did seem at times to zoom ahead a tad too fast. Mazzuca's voice rated well enough for me to try another from her library, whether from this series or not. Overall it was a sweet and light read that helped distract from the never ending frigid winter nights.
