A feisty beauty tempted by a bold highlander's touch... When a plane crash strands brilliant scientist Grace Sutter on an icy mountaintop in Maine, she finds herself alone in the wilderness with the only other surviving passenger -- Greylen MacKeage, a sexy, medieval warrior who's been tossed through time to find the woman he's destined to love. Forced together to survive the harsh, wintry landscape, neither expects the fierce passion that flares between them. But Grace is not used to letting her heart take control, and Greylen will settle for nothing less than her heart's surrender....

MY REVIEW
Summary:
Grace Stutter, having the responsibility of delivering her sisters baby to the father, since her sister died, waits six weeks before heading to Maine, having a feeling that she would be making a new start….but then her plane crashes on the mountain and she, the baby, and a sexy highland warrior -Greyland-are the survivors. Now they are pushed together out of survival, but a deep passion is awakened between them…a passion that burns slowly to a deep love that will change their lives forever…..


The Hero (Greylen MeacKeage)
Grey, the leader of his clan, once lived eight hundred years ago, until in the midst of a battle, he and his men are taken to the future by a wizard, so that he can find his true love, since he would never be able to find her in his own time. Grey, has been in the modern century for four years, and has been adjusting pretty well as far as he is concerned. From the first moment he sees Grace, he finds her breathtakingly beautiful and will do everything he can to bind her to him so he can have her forever.


The Heroine (Grace Sutter)
Grace, is a scientist, and doesn’t believe in anything magical or any superstitions of any sort. When her sister comes to her with a death bed wish, she knows she can do nothing but honor it. On her way in doing so, she meets with Grey, who is unlike any man she has ever met, his kisses as sweet as honey, yet as powerful as thunder, and he starts to slowly take over her senses..


My Thoughts 
I have never read this author, but I was in the mood for some good highlander romance, and I decided that after hearing some great things from this author, I knew that I needed to try her out, and I definitely wasn’t disappointed. I just got this book a few hours ago, and just finished, I was that drawn into Charming The Highlander. I think I loved everything about this book. I just love it when you have time travel books when dealing with sexy highlanders from the past….so yummy with the accent, attitude and their fiery passion for a woman they love. There were definitely many witty moments throughout the story that would make you bow over and laugh your heart out. The writing was charming and tended to draw the reader in from the first to the very last page of the book. I felt like I was actually there in the story…the scenes were so vivid in detail….definitely a keeper for me!!
