A Highlander of Her Own
Melissa Mayhue
Pocket Mass Market
**** +

           When a rose-shaped mark suddenly appears on Ellie Denton's breast, she thinks she might have cancer. This is the latest in a series of things that have gone wrong in her life, including the reappearance of her sleazy stepfather. She makes a wish to find her true love, and after a crackle of green lightning, she wakes up in Scotland in 1304. At first she can't believe that she has landed in another country and century, but the obvious lack of city lights helps to convince her. But even this doesn't convince her that it's the Fae who put the mark on her breast, and the Fae who sent her back in time.
          Caden MacAlister most definitely believes in the Fae. He has Fae blood, and so does Ellie-- the rose-shaped mark is a sign of her heritage. At first, she drives him crazy with her lack of modesty and her use of many strange words. But soon he can't stop thinking about her. He has vowed never to marry, since his first fiancée betrayed and nearly destroyed his family. But this vow was made to be broken.
          Melissa Mayhue's Daughters of the Glen series is excellent, and each book can be read independently. Readers will enjoy watching a twenty-first century Texas woman land in fourteenth-century Scotland.
