A Highlander of Her Own (Daughters of the Glen, Book 4) - Melissa Mayhue Time traveling elements always add a weird twist. Sure, a paranormal romance isn't weird, right? I don't usually like them since they pose serious issues of reasonable expectations, but this one didn't throw me for a loop. The beginning though necessary was prolonged, and it had several instances of my least favorite device in romance novels--self referencing. I hate when books talk about reading romance novels or loving their guilty little pleasures, etc. Drives me bonkers. The story once established in medieval Scotland was entertaining. I knew the plot twists before they were revealed, but I liked the hero so it didn't annoy me. It had some moments, but not stellar. Then again, this subgenre is not my first choice cup of tea.
