Scotland, Present Day 2018
Kenzie Jacobs of present day in the 21st century, has inherited the power to time-travel from the future to the past. She has always been obsessed with a portrait that hangs in her ancestral home in Scotland. It is of Black Ben, Laird of Ross of the 17th century. He seems to of disappeared after a fire in her ancestral home, yet no record of his death anywhere. Kenzie would love to solve this mystery, besides seeing the changes of her ancestral home, four hundred years prior to her current time in the 21st century. She is also suspicious of Black Ben’s disappearance with no record of him in history. In addition there is no history of his family lineage and his castle did not survive. It is basically a crumbling mess in pieces. This is the mystery Kenzie wants to solve though she suspects foul play - believing Black Ben was murdered.
A few months after she times travels to Scotland in 1605 where she meets Gwen and Braxton Maclead, her great-great-great too many to count grandparents! It os hilarious as Kenzie is actually older then her ancesters when they meet face to face in 1605.
Black Ben, Laird of Ross is in a horrible state wasting his life away. He left his keep not able to see the looks of sadness and sympathy from his clan. As his young wife died from complications from childbirth. After she had delivered him a healthy son, Black Ben is living with guilt as he never even loved his wife not that she loved him either. So he is basically drinking at this inn which is more of a cheap dirty whorehouse. He is ashamed of his current condition, but not ready to return home yet.
Now it defintley was not love at first sight when they first meet. As Black Ben is a total mess with bad breath, unbathed as his body order stinks to high heaven and his hair is unkept and matted! A big disappointment. Than he gets a high a fever, and nearly dies. Luckily Kenzie brought some of her 21st century medicines with her that saved Black Ben’s life. Though Kenzie has had a crush on Black Ben since seeing his portrait as a young girl. Now once he was bathed and clean he was absolutely drool worthy from top to bottom! His bulging biceps, dark silky long tresses, sensuous smile and sexy scottish brogue. Kenzie kept telling herself as did Ben that no feelings could surface or it would rip her heart out. Ben was trying to get over a wife's death he never loved, he knew Kenzie was everything he wanted in a woman. Would he ever be able to let her go? Or would it be heartbreak and devastation, once this 21st century beauty returned to her own time?
This is the second book is the face paced riveting A Times Travelers Love Series. The setting is beautiful, dialogue is amazing, plotting is brilliant and the characters phenomenal. It is filled with adventure, mystery, paranormal, time-travel, suspense, betrayal, devastation, treachery, sorrow, heartbreak, faith, joy, love and so much more. A book readers can easily read as a stand alone novel or in series order. As there are characters - from the first book in this series making appearances too. I have read both spectacular books where the author Tamara Gill juat blew me away! Bravo!
I absolutely highly recommend the spectacular book! A novel Scottish Historical Time-Travel readers don't want to miss.
