First Time with a Highlander

Gwyn Cready. Sourcebooks Casablanca, $6.99 mass market (384p) ISBN 978-1-4926-01

Cready plays to her strengths in this dashing, breathtaking, and extremely sexy time-travel romp. Serafina Fallon is a fallen woman in 1706 Scotland who needs a good man to help reclaim her fortune and her reputation. When she prematurely casts a spell meant to help her, she gets more than she bargained for. Advertising copywriter Gerard Innes is a 21st-century New Yorker with a knack for the ladies. He is less than thrilled to find himself in a distant place and time, with only the vaguest of memories of how he spent his first night there. Gerard’s talent with words helps him dodge most of the problems caused by abrupt time travel, but nothing has him prepared for the fiery Scotswoman who sweeps him off his feet. As for Serafina, she’s not sure she’s ready to trust any man again, let alone a charming serial seducer like Gerard—even if he is fetching in a kilt. The twisting plot makes a headlong rush to a delightful conclusion. Agent: Claudia Cross, Folio Literary Management. (Oct.)
