Successful matchmaker Brianagh O'Rourke believes in happily-ever-afters...just not her own. She's convinced passion only exists in her dreams. When she reluctantly accepts a marriage proposal, Bri decides she needs a vacation-but she didn't expect it to be in 15th century Ireland.

Laird Nioclas MacWilliam just wants peace for his clan. The time for him to marry has come, and after waiting years for his ally to present their daughter, he's agreed to marry another. But on the eve of his nuptials, a daring rescue brings his missing betrothed right into his arms.

And she doesnotwant to be there.

Brianagh has to return to the future. Nioclas has to marry. He offers a solution for the both of them: She marries him and stays for three months, and they work together to convince his clan they are a love match. In return, he vows to safely return her home. But as the days turn to weeks, they both begin to see what a happily-ever-after could be. And when the time comes, does Brianagh return to the life she's built, or does she remain in the past for a chance at true love?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Time Travel Romance - Debut Novel! Delightful debut novel by Nancy Scanlon! This first book in a magical time travel series provides enough characters to keep going for quite some time. I am eager to see which one of the characters will have his or her story told next. Brianagh O’Rourke heads off to Ireland for some R&R with her cousin Reilly only to find herself in a completely different time period. She is not happy with her situation and believes she will return to the present and the life she left behind even though her cousin indicates that this is not an option. Meeting Laird Nioclas “Nick” MacWilliams throws a wrench into her plans and also stirs her in more ways than one. This book has a villain to hate, strong warriors with soft hearts, women with purpose and a story that made me smile, made me happy and made me want… Thank you to NetGalley and Diversion Books for the copy of this book to read and review.
