Blurb: Dumped yet again, the last thing Siobhan expects to find in the Highland mists is a man who looks like he walked right out of Scottish history. Find out if there is A Time for Everything when a disgruntled heiress and a strong, sexy Scottish laird are drawn together by a determined ghost whose love and magic reach beyond the grave. 

Siobhan Macquire’s fortune has attracted a string of men who are out to drain her for everything they can get.

Her last boyfriend was no exception. Furious at being used—again—she goes for a walk in the Highlands.

With the weather worsening, Siobhan wanders alone for hours. She’s soaking wet and starting to get scared when someone calls out to her. A striking-looking man emerges from the mist. Except there’s something wrong. His kilt is way too long and he talks with an archaic accent. Siobhan soon finds herself not only lost in the countryside but also in time.

Review: This is a short story, a very short story.  This can't be described as a book or a novella, it is simply too short. Short, as in less than 40 pages, which makes it hard to say anything about the story except, just when its getting started, it is over.

And that pretty much sums up the story.

You really couldn't get attached to Siobhan or Angus, because there isn't enough time and certainly not enough time to create a believable time travel story, and there's not enough sex to count it as erotica, but Siobhan thinks about it a lot, when it comes to Angus.

This is the kind of story that leaves you wishing it were much longer, so overall it wasn't satisfying enough for me.

I did like Ann's writing style, and I wouldn't hesitate to try a full length novel of hers.
