She has the power to tempt him beyond all reason.... Catherine Daniels arrives in Pine Creek, Maine, at just the right time for Robbie MacBain. She is on the run from her ex-husband, and Robbie is a sexy, single foster parent who needs a housekeeper while he travels back in time to medieval Scotland. Unbeknownst to Catherine, Robbie's looking for a book of spells to save the future of his family...and little did he expect to find a burning passion in Catherine's arms. Can Robbie seal his family's fate while enticing Catherine to follow him and her own heart wherever love will take them?

3.0 out of 5 stars Scottish Pirates, Beware! 30 Jun 2008
By E. A. Thomas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I view time travel romances that involve Scottish men and have the word "Highlander" in the title through a pair of very expensive rose-colored glasses. I am inexplicably and unabashedly in love with the genre.

That being said, my criticisms of the fourth book in Chapman's Highlander Series would likely be harsher was it not for the aforementioned factors. Even so, minus one star because it's not even close to being the best in the series. And minus another star because it was while reading one of Father Daar's comments to Robbie MacBain in this installment that I finally realized what it was about this author's written interpretation of a Scottish burr that bothered me the most. Way to go, Father Daar, you've messed up again!

"Do ya think I asked to be a druidh? It's not exactly something ya wish for. Providence decides our destinies. Yar own mother understood this, and it didn't stop her from having you. It's not a curse, boy," Daar snapped, leaning forward. "It's a gift. Yar mama not only gave ya life but the gift of yar calling. Embrace it. Use it! Explore the full extent of yar abilities, and thank God that ya have the means to protect those ya love."

So is it just me or does this sound more like pirate slang than a Scottish brogue?!? Yar! YAR!!!! Shiver me timbers, YAR!!!!

Once that thought occurred to me, my desire to write off the entire book became even stronger, especially since I couldn't quite get into the pairing of Robbie MacBain (the hero) with Catherine, aka Cat, Daniels (the heroine). Cat was too much of a cliche and as a result, their wimpy romance was just sort of okay. Because Robbie had played a role in previous books in the series, I'd hoped his story would have had more oomph.

One final recommendation if you're considering a foray into Janet Chapman's world of hot bod Highlanders: read the series in order. You'll be confused if you don't.

1) Charming the Highlander
2) Loving the Highlander
3) Wedding the Highlander
4) Tempting the Highlander
5) Only with a Highlander
6) Secrets of the Highlander

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story 6 July 2011
By JEM - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I enjoyed reading about Robbie MacBain in Charming the Highlander (Highlander Trilogy) and Wedding the Highlander so I was happy to read his very own story in this book. I liked how the author plays up his calling as a Guardian by throwing him 4 foster boys to manage and getting involved with Catherine and her two young kids on top of watching over everyone who is a part of his family. It was also very touching to continue reading about his special relationship with his snowy owl, who carries the spirit of his deceased mother, Mary. Of course other characters and family members from previous books show up here and reading about them makes you just want to become a part of this group.

3.0 out of 5 stars EEEEhhhhhh....It was okay 6 Nov 2010
By Michelle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Tempting the Highlander started out strong, but fizzled in the end. It had a strong plot line, loads of mysteries and smart-alic foster kids to boot....all in all it all adds up to the kinda story I enjoy reading....but unfortunatley I found myself waiting for the story to end...

I felt the author crammed way to much into her story and though the two main characters were interesting, I found it way to hard to keep up with their issues and remember who is whose uncle and who was whose mom...and I must say I am still confused... This is definetly one of those books that you will have to read and re-read...and even take an occasional note...to understand what the heck the author was trying to convey...

If you are interested in reading this book I would suggest that you borrow it from a library or a friend...don't waste your money buying it...

2.0 out of 5 stars Stretch of the Highlands 16 Nov 2009
By Bronte - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
How is this book considered a "highlander" romance? Story is weak, character development is so-so, no "hot" scenes. Sheesh! If all people could get over years of abuse as well as the heroine, we'd be living in a great world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Humor, Time Travel and Romance - Perfect! 9 Nov 2004
By Cat Lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have read all of Chapman's books and never been disappointed. Tempting the Highlander was another fantastic story. Robbie is a big loveable guy. I liked Caroline, too. She grows from being afraid to learning how to defend herself. This was a good, satisfying, hard to put down story.
