       For Melanie, "Be careful what you wish for" becomes "Be careful what you wish on."

      While examining Andrew Carnegie’s lucky rosewood box, single-and-pregnant museum worker Melanie makes a tongue in cheek wish on the artifact--for a Highland warrior to help her forget about her cheating ex. Suddenly transported to the middle of a clan skirmish in sixteenth-century Scotland, she realizes she should have been a tad more specific.

      Darcy, laird in waiting, should be the most eligible bachelor in Ackergill, but a cruel prank played on him in his teenage years has led him to believe he is too large under his kilt to ever join with a woman. He has committed himself to a life of bachelorhood, running his deceased father's windmills and keeping up the family manor house...alone.

       Darcy's uncle, Laird Steafan welcomes the strangely dressed woman into his clan, immediately marrying her to Darcy in hopes of an heir. But when Steafan learns of her magic box and brands her a witch, Darcy must do what any good husband would--protect his wife, even if it means forsaking his clan. 

Angela’s Review:

       First off, I love this book!   Ms. Gage made me feel as though I had been tossed back in time right along with the heroine.   

       The descriptions and characters in this book were amazingly written, and I found that Ms. Gage’s decision to send a pregnant, unmarried woman from the 21st Century back to 16th Century Scotland genius.  Not only was it keeping to true to our era, but it gave the heroine a whole other set of problems to work through. 

       I was able to easily relate to Melanie from the very beginning.   Though she felt rejected by Darcy, she never gave up and trusted on her intuitive nature to see past the visible, and delve deeper into Darcy’s issues, and his heart.

       I was up in the air from the beginning of this book, trying to figure out if the future Laird of Ackergill was a Beta or an Alpha male, as he was just the total package when it comes to sexy highlanders!  The man has no flaws.  It will be near impossible for any reader to, not fall in love with Darcy!

      The hero's lack of sexual experience, and Melanie's raging pregnancy hormones set up the perfect situation for over the top sexual tension between the couple.  Unlike other romances, Ms. Gage turned the tables on this one, giving the heroine the power to teach her lover the finer points of ecstasy.  The scenes were perfect, and not only was it sensual, it was just down right sexy, to watch this new found intimacy blossom between the couple. 

       If you loved reading Veronica Wolff’s or Melissa Mayhue’s Scottish time travels, than Wishing For A Highlander by Jessie Gage should not be missed.  It was an outstanding read, and I’m extremely optimistic, that we will be hearing a lot more from Ms. Gage!  Even though it’s only January, I have to say there is a very strong chance that Jessi will be my favorite new author for 2013!!!
