Scottish Pirates, Beware! 30 Jun. 2008
By E. 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

delightful entry 1 Sept. 2004
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
In Pine Creek, Maine, Robbie MacBain tries to catch the person raiding his henhouse but fails when the young woman outruns him though he is a warrior in great shape. His four teenage "delinquent" wards tease him.

Father Daar tells Robbie the guardian that the spell that brought the ten Scottish warriors with him from eight hundred years ago forward in time thirty five years ago is expiring. The survivors will return to their biological time. Robbie needs to steal the spell book of a rival wizard so that Daar can perform an extension spell.

Robbie learns that his thief is Catherine Daniels a woman with two young children who is divorced from Ronald who spent three years in prison for spousal abuse.

Robbie goes back in time seeking the spell book. However, he fails and is wounded severely so he returns home. Catherine and her frightened children find him injured. Robbie offers Catherine the job of housekeeper; she reluctantly accepts. Cat follows Robbie up the mountain. When the storm arrives, Cat and Robbie are back in the thirteenth century, but she thinks it is a dream. Cat tells Robbie she loves him. Robbie marries a stunned Cat before telling her he loves her too.

The latest Highlander tale is an exciting story enhanced by a wonderful support cast including those returning from previous novels and the six youngsters. Fans will appreciate the heroine who vows to watch Robbie's back and feel for her frightened children. Though two major confrontations (present time and eight hundred years ago), turn out to be anticlimactic, fans will enjoy this delightful entry.

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...

Great story 6 July 2011
By Amazon Customer - 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.

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.
