      I managed to read through chapter 14 before I had enough. So I really tried because there is a story here. It's just badly written. I kept waiting for something interesting to happen. Instead, I was bored.Fortin "tells" the story instead of showing (which accounts for the lack of emotional connection for me). She does a poor job of head hopping (no proper setup before switching POV). She has paragraphs of boring (though probably well researched) descriptions and historical information, harping o [...]

      Okay, so what can I say I really liked this book a great deal. Dr.Emmy MacKenzie vacations to Scotland alone between her internship and starting a new position at a women's Ob/Gyn office. Emmy takes a shuttle bus to the castle Duarts on the Island of Mull; she turns out to be the only tourist on the Shuttle and winds up talking to he driver Donnell quite a bit; upon reaching the castle she makes a statement that life must of been so much simpler during the time the castle was refurbished , she g [...]

      I loved this book. There was so much that went on but with all the twist and turns in the story it was a well written time travel romance. I want a Connor all my own :)

      I see that a lot of reviewers found this book slow. But I really enjoyed it. In fact I was pretty pleasantly surprised. I only paid .99 for it so I wasn't expecting much. There were some editing issues, with words that were left out of sentences in a couple of places but that didn't bother me so much. Like I said, I was really surprised because it was a such a cheap book. I thought it was a fun read. I love the time travel highlander books.(view spoiler)[I will say I was sorely disappointed by o [...]

      LOVED IT!!I am Happily Surprised at how much I loved A Laird for All Time. This is my first Angeline Fortin book but it won't be my last.While on vacation in the British Isles Dr. Emmy MacKenzie is catapulted a 100yrs back in time to the late Victoria Era. While on a tour of Duart Castle she commented to her tour guide and driver about how life was so much easier a 100yrs prior then now the year 2010. Well she soon finds out this is not true. Donell sends her back in time and she arrives on the [...]

      If we could all go back in time and find our romantic heroes but alas that's why we have fantasies just like this and for 99 cents, this is quite a beauty.Our heroine is a much needed vacation having dedicated her life to her studies and residency, she needs some "alone" time, what she actually gets in a twist of fate, thanks to a elderly but mystical cab driver who questions her implication that our ancestors had an easier time in their time than the current time.Emmy is thrown back 100 years i [...]

      Emmy MacKenzie has just finished a decade of training to be a doctor and decides to go on holiday before she starts her new job. She tours around England, on her own, and spends her last few days in the Scottish Highlands. She travels to the ancient castle of Duart for the day and finds herself transported back to the time of the castle’s laird and restorer, someone she’d just be reading about in her guidebook. The laird, Connor MacLean, mistakes Emmy for his bride, the one who ran away on t [...]

      Previously I've read one other Highland novel where elements of science fiction came into play. I did not think I would read another such work but I must admit that "A Laird for All Time" handled the paradox of time travel quite well. The author Angeline Fortin just didn't try to explain it. Some times it is better that way because it ends up detracting from the characters. The characters in "A Laird for All Time" are well developed and the author manages to build up the suspense without being t [...]

      Although this manuscript suffered a bit from exclamation point-itis, I liked it enough to read it in one sitting. The characters were believable and loveable. The sex scenes could have used a little work. I also think I would have enjoyed it more without the epilogue. Still, I liked it enough to put this author's other works on my to-read list.

    • Lori McD says:

      Unfortunately, I agree with several other reviewers here at . The book's premise has promise, but the story and the characters just don't live up to that promise. I can overlook the formatting and typos and other ebook issues - heaven knows that too many publishers race to ebook format without giving the book a good once-over after it's in that format. But I can't overlook taking what should be a really good novel and making it only so-so.I've never read a "highlander" romance novel set in Victo [...]

      This book is about Dr. Emmy MacKenzie, an obgyn, who finds herself hurled back into time and comes into contact with Connor MacLean who swears that Emmy is his long, lost wife Heather. The author did a great job of transporting the reader back in time, where men wear kilts and woman are slowly coming into a greater role in society. I normally have issues with historical books as one of my majors in colleges was history and I hate when inaccuracies abound. A lot of times historicals end up feelin [...]

      I picked this book up back in October as an ebook deal on . I am always willing to drop a buck or two for an interesting story from an author I haven't heard of. I very much enjoyed this book.The basics, Dr. Emmy MacKenzie travels to Scotland prior to taking her first job after finishing her residency. Upon her arrival to view a castle in Mull, she wishes to see what it would have looked like when it was rebuilt around the turn of the century, thinking those times were simpler. Her wish comes tr [...]

      This wasn't terribly done. The writing wasn't redundant or all that cliched, there wasn't an overabundance of purple prose, and the premise was somewhat interesting. The plot twists were pretty good, too, all things considered, and the usual time travel angst was absent. There wasn't, however, a whole lot of immersion. There was a lack of feeling that came through in the writing, an almost clinical approach to storytelling. Some authors are capable of crafting characters who feel real to the rea [...]

    • Taria Reed says:

      I'm really enjoying the story but I am getting a bit frustrated that Emmy is not hiding some of her modern knowledge, but hides the fact that she is from the future as if her toting around an iPhone with earbuds isn't gonna rouse suspicion. 2hrs leftoh oh oh i have an idea of what Dori's secret is so now i'm just sitting through the last 1.5hrs to see if i'm rightck to the story.Yup I guessed it but I loved Emmy's "solution". I was hoping the reunion was a bit more detailed. It was more of an af [...]

      In my quest for silly little highlander romance books, I stumbled upon this one. On a business trip where the internet is SLOW, so I'll be brief:What I liked best: the female protag. She was actually fairly well done. I liked that she was smart, accomplished, had a smart mouth, etc. What I liked least: the time of the book. This one was set much later than the other highlander books I've read: late 1800s. In a way, it was nice to see a few more modern conveniences. But it's hard to explain it wa [...]

      I loved this book!Emmie is visiting the Uk on a ten day vacation after finishing all her requirements for becoming a doctor. On her last day on vacation she is to visit a medieval castle. Her tour guide/bus driver is her only company , as it is the last day the castle is open to the public . She makes the random statement about " simpler times" and how easy life was back then. She has a moment of vertigo , and is now in the 18oo's. She encounters Conner , the laird who believes Emmie is his long [...]

    • Jana Smith says:

      Excellent and entertaining.I am not one to summarize a book in my reviews, and will not start now. However I must heap high praise on Angeline Fortin's book A LAIRD FOR ALL TIME. It a well written book with a clever twist on the time travel themecond chances and heart's deepest desires. it is very possible that we don't know our heart's deepest desire, until we loose it, nor do we understand second chances until we are in a position to grant them. Connor and Emmy must find it in themselves to do [...]

      WOW!!!!!!!!!!!I love Scottish historical romance and time travel romance. When I bought this book, I expected more of the usual delightful stories as I've enjoyed in the past. I was mistaken- but in a good way. This story is very different. It's uniqueness makes it an absolutely FANTASTIC read! The characters will steal your heart and the plot is so well done, you may stay up till 5:00 in the morning reading as I did just to stay with it to the wonderful end. Twists and turns and the future vers [...]

      Emmy goes on a vacation to Scotland and goes on a tour. She is there on the last day of the tourist season and happens to be the only one on the tour. She goes to visit a huge magnificent castle. While standing before the castle a man approaches her on a horse and she faints. When she wakes up, she is in the year 1895 and the Laird of the castles claims she is his long lost wife. I enjoyed the story, but hated what a know-it-all Emmy was. She had an inappropriate temper, threatening those who co [...]

    • SheLove2Read says:

      Quite a few editing errors and the story seemed inconsistent, but what really turned me off is that the heroine is a doctor but makes the comment early on that (and I'm paraphrasing) "thank God she didn't specialize in mental illness". This just seemed a crass and ugly statement to hear from a doctor, and as a parent of a mentally challenged child, I'm making a note to avoid this author in the future. It wasn't cute or funny no matter how you want to play it.

    • Twarla Hill says:

      When a 21st century educated OB-GYN suddenly finds herself in the restrictions of 18th century barbaric Scotland, she cannot imagine the how/why. Nor can she explain why everyone insists she is the laird's long lost wife who fled and abandoned him on her wedding night ten years ago. She cannot imagine why these prudish women finds her posture and speech appalling, and just saying breast is simple unheard of. So what did the good doctor do by their outrage she sang breast breast breast

    • Trish Bash says:

      I was so happy to read a well written complete story. So many books today are series books with cliffhanger endings so you want to buy the next book. I still want to buy more of Angeline Fortin's books because she writes an awesome story but I don't feel forced to buy the next book to complete the story.If you want to know what the book is about, follow the link:/book/show/1

    • Wende says:

      I really liked this book. It was unbelievable of course but it was fun. Emmy was a doctor from this time ends up over a hundred years ago. She meet Connor who thought she was his wife who returned after being missing for ten years. I liked how it was set up and that it was not instant love. This is the first book I had read of the author and it will not be the last.

    • Stacie says:

      3 1/2 Stars!I'm rounding up on this one. It was a very good story and both main characters are very likeable, as well as the supporting characters. It just took a long time for the H to accept the truth of who the h was. More timeuld have been spent on other things or just cut out. Anyway, I liked it. Happy reading.

    • Larissa says:

      Loved this book! I've always enjoyed time-travel romance books and this one did NOT disappoint!

    • Lisa Nobbs says:

      I love a good time travel romance ane this story did not disappoint. The story was funny and heart wrenching at times. Connor was hot.

    • Debbi Skeen says:

    • Linda says:

      Usually not much on Time travel stories but I LOVE this one! I love the ending!

    • Karen McLeanBarnett says:

      A Laird for All Time is the Greatest This book is so great that I had to read it in almost one sitting!! I was pleasantly surprised when I started the first page. I happen to be a descendant of the Clan MacLean of Duart. I enjoyed this story even more because of the familiar connection. This story is wonderfully written and the characters jump off the page and grab you and take you into the story. It feels so real and I would and will share this story and hopefully the next story with everyone a [...]
