Book Review: To Love a Highland Dragon

                                          Today's review is on To Love a Highland Dragon by Ann Gimpel

I love reading Gimpel's books because they always have twists, turns, love, and just enough sex to put you in the mood. Besides that, who doesn't dream of the muscular, gorgeous, hunk of a man that declares their undying love? You know the one. He sparks the flame and keeps it burning all night long. And hey, I'm a therapist so I love the psychological aspects in her books.

After her parents died, Dr. Maggie Hibbins refused to learn magic and develop her witchie skills. At the same time she has pretty much closed herself off to all relationships. Her work at the hospital in Inverness is her life. A life without any romance. That is until she finds Lachlan coming out of a thicket. He's dressed oddly, and in need of a haircut and shave, but she takes pity on him and helps him out. Besides, someone that handsome can't be all that bad.

Lachlan has been under a spell and has been "asleep" for a very long time. He is beyond surprised when he ventures out of the safety of his cave and sees that everything has changed. Men in this era wear long britches instead of plaids, women show far more skin, and he doesn't see any dragons. Kheladin will be very disappointed.

The attraction that Lachlan and Maggie have for each other is strong and instant and Lachlan  doesn't want to ever let her go. Even when he is sent back in time at the hands of his adversary. Thank goodness he learns that the dragons have mastered time travel long long ago. It's up to Kheladin to get them back to Maggie.

Fated to be together, Lachlan, Kheladin, and Maggie must defeat their enemy, but not without the help of the Celtic gods and a coven of witches. One of whom is Maggie herself.

Danger, Dragons, Witches, love and sex? Who wouldn't want to read this book?

Book Description: via Amazon

A modern day psychiatrist and a dragon shifter stranded in time can't escape their destiny, no matter how unlikely it seems.

In a cave deep beneath Inverness, a dragon shifter stirs and wakens. The cave is the same and his hoard intact, yet Lachlan senses something amiss. Taking his human form, he ventures above ground with ancient memories flooding him. But nothing is the same. His castle has been replaced by ungainly row houses. Men aren’t wearing plaids, and women scarcely wear anything at all.

In Inverness for a year on a psychiatry fellowship, Dr. Maggie Hibbins watches an oddly dressed man pick his way out of a heather and gorse thicket. Even though it runs counter to her better judgment, she teases him about his strange attire. He looks so lost—and so unbelievably handsome —she takes him to a pub for a meal, to a barbershop, and then home. Along the way the hard-to-accept truth sinks in: he has to be a refugee from another era.

Never a risk-taker, Maggie finds her carefully constructed life changed forever. Swept up in an ancient prophecy that links her to Lachlan and his dragon, she must push the edges of the impossible to save both the present and her heart.
