Ellie Graham is the tour manager for Ian MacGregor, the Celtic Rock phenomenon. She has been in love with him since she started working for him, but holds back fearing rejection and losing another person she loves.

Ian MacGregor revels in his new life; he is worlds and centuries away from his life as a highwayman in eighteenth century Scotland. His best friend, Quinn, and his family are his now.

Ian has been flourishing in his career as a musician in the twenty-first century and has almost forgotten his life before he traveled to this time. But when events throw him, his tour manager, Ellie, and Davy Ferguson back to the eighteenth century, he sees an opportunity to right the wrongs the English have done to his people. Ellie and Davy have to try to keep him from disaster.

I am not usually a big fan of time travel romances, but Ms. Mallory’s are always an exception. Her characters are realistic despite their situation, and she manages to go from the present to the past with no loss of that realistic feel. Ian and Ellie are wonderful characters, each with flaws and virtues. Ian’s career as a Celtic Rocker is a masterstroke, and Ellie really comes out of her shell in the 1700’s. I also liked the subplot of Katie and Davy’s romance and the secret Jacobites.
