You would think that any book featuring time travel, hot highlanders, mystery, conflict and great lovin' would be a recipe for success. Unfortunately, this one just didn't do it for me.It started with a prologue that felt too old-school "bodice ripper" to me. Now this isn't saying that all bodice rippers are bad. I just wasn't expecting this particular type of vibe in a book that was published within the past couple of years. Then on top of that, we were in a prologue, but in the past, but aren't quite sure if the past happened before the present time or after. There was no explaining until much later.Then...chapter 1 starts and we're in the present, but I'm still trying to figure out the prologue when all of a sudden new people come in and start wrecking havoc. Wait...what? Can I figure out one thing first before having to piece together something else?From then on, it all went downhill. Once I started figuring what was going on, I realized I just didn't really care. Malcolm should have been intriguing, especially given his history, but he never really came to life for me.
