Goodreads synopsis:

In this scintillating novel from the author of My Tempting Highlander (“Another exciting and heartwarming time-travel romance.”—Vonnie Davis), the ladies’ man of Loch Ness meets a hot-tempered lass who sets his heart aflame.
Though part of a legacy of time-traveling sisters, Lilia Sinclair is planted firmly in twenty-first-century Edinburgh. Her granny’s matchmaking with thirteenth-century Highlanders isn’t about to lure her into the past, especially as ancient Scotland enters troubled times. After all, Lilia is blessed—or cursed—with dire prophetic visions. To protect herself, she’s put up an icy emotional wall no man could cross—until a pair of gorgeous, rippling arms breaks right through.
Graham MacTavish is pure trouble. Once the dragon bound to Loch Ness, he’s transformed into a philanderer of the first order. In fact, because of his dalliances with other men’s wives, a rival clan wants his head on a pike. Before he provokes an all-out war, Graham is banished to the twenty-first century, where he must win Lilia’s hand—or return to die. But after meeting a lass as fierce as any Highland warrior, Graham knows one thing: life with Lilia, in any century, is a fate to embrace.

My review:

From the first sentence, I knew I would like this book.  It goes:

“Dammint, man! Did ye no’ think to learn her name afore ye decided to bed her?”

Right from that sentence, I knew this was going to be a fun book and oh boy, was it. I got so involved in reading this book that I finished it in one night.

But on a serious note, I loved that the author chose to address depression. This had to of been the most realistic portrayal of depression that I have read to date. It was refreshing to read this because most books that I have read that portrayed a person with depression portrayed them as really emo or really loony and people didn’t know how to handle it. I loved that her support system, Vivienne and Alberti, could see when she was falling into a depressive state and just be there for her.

Lilia is an empath, can read auras and has a prophetic vision…which contributed to her depression. And also the fact that she was almost screwed over by her business partner. So it’s not any surprise that Vivienne and Alberti are so protective of her. She is fragile.

So it really didn’t surprise me that they went into overdrive when Graham and Angus showed up.

Oh Graham, such a bad boy. He got caught having relations with a rival clan chieftain’s wife and mistress….together, in a stable. According to him, he was making up for lost time. See, he spent 300 years as a dragon protecting Loch Ness due to an evil witch’s curse and he was, well for lack of a better term, screwing everyone that had a skirt because he got none as a dragon. So his punishment was to be put into the 21st century, find Lilia, make her fall in love with him and bond (marry) so he isn’t teleported back. He only has a month to do this or he goes back and gets killed by the rival chieftain. Angus had to go along because, well, he was guilty by association and Granny Sinclair had a vision and he was in it. Poor Angus…lol.

When Angus and Graham hit the 21st century, it was definitely a culture shock. From the toilets (and Angus wanting to pee in the sink, I died laughing) to riding in the cars (Graham’s reaction to Vivienne’s driving is what BK does to me) to go up an elevator….it was hilarious. I had tears streaming down my face during those scenes.

The relationship between Lilia and Graham was a little fast. But considering that he only had a month to bond with her, it really wasn’t. He was under a deadline…lol. And the sex was out of this world. The scene with the toy (not saying which one….read the book) was out of this world.

The end was what I expected but the epilogue broke my heart :(. It was actually a great way to end the series but still sad. I would love to know if there is going to be books with the kids? Because I enjoyed this book this much

How many stars will I give My Seductive Highlander? 4

Will I recommend to family and friends? Yes

Age range: Adult
