My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts as I went with the book for visit Punya ReviewsBarbara Longley’s The Highlander's Folly is the 3rd installment of her time travel Loch Moigh series I’ve read and loved the first two installments but unfortunately this one was rather frustrating And I blame no one but HunterWhy I’ll go there soon but first a little recap Loch Moigh started with True to the Highlander where we find that the Fae have been meddling with the MacKintosh clan for a long time The reasons behind start unraveling as the story and the series progressed I’d recommend reading the series back to back as the incidents happening are rather intertwined IMOAlethia or True as the MacKintosh start calling her is transported in time by a gypsy woman called Madame Giselle while she was working at a Renaissance fair True had no idea what was coming so all of it was very sudden where she finds herself in the 15th c Highlands rescued by the Laird’s heir Malcolm She ultimately finds a home at Moigh Hall the MacKintosh Laird’s keep True is an orphan with mixed origin She’s part Red Indian She had been ‘gifted’ ever since her birth a fact though she tried hiding most of the times becomes apparent soon because her ‘specialty’ lies in having the visions of negative things She soon starts having those visions about Malcolm his father William and how an enemy clan would betray them at a later point Malcolm and his family believed in True’s seemingly fantastical story because they were familiar with Giselle People here always sensed that she’s not human Everybody who saw her saw her as an old crone no matter the year She never changedAt one point True saves a little orphaned boy and adopts him She names him Hunter because no one else knew his real name When Malcolm and his family guessed behind the reason for True’s time traveling he becomes fiercely protective of her It might also be the case that they both start falling for each other too Eventually they marry and Malcolm too adopts Hunter as his son When she finally saves them from the murder she kept having the vision of True becomes a ‘true’ member of MacKintosh clan revered by everyoneAt the end of the story they visit Giselle to know the ‘truth’ Its then it becomes clear that Hunter is the pinnacle of all of Giselle’s activities and interest in this clan Giselle claims to have once married to the first laird of the MacConnell clan Hunter turns out to be a MacConnell True already knew she had Fae blood because of her abilities To their utter shock she and Malcolm learn that Hunter is Giselle’s grandson many generations removed That Giselle’s main reason for bringing True here was to take care of Hunter True didn’t really have anyone to return to and now having married the love of her life being with a family she’d come to love she decides to make 15th c her permanent homeRobley the H of book 2 The Highlander's Bargain was introduced in book 1 A jolly fellow Robley is the second son of Robert William’s brother He was to follow his father’s footsteps and become a seneschal when he met True and becomes smitten Though Robley backed off because of Malcolm he wanted to find a girl like True to love and settle down with He was pretty sure that he can find someone like that in the ‘future’ And for that he strikes a bargain with Giselle Though that bargain brings Erin to him and a taste of the 21st c for a short while Robley soon learns in the hard way that striking bargains with Fey can only lead to bigger trouble When that trouble finds them he and Erin are returned to his time without Erin’s consent if I might add to deal with itErin is gifted too and her ‘specialty’ lies in detecting people’s health and well being She can also cure some basic illness and can provide healing energy to lessen the pain of the worse of them That’s why Erin made a career in nursing her goal to become a midwife after her training She comes from a rather dysfunctional family and her mother’s crazy love life made her swear off men But with Robley things are different Though worried over a 15th c lifestyle eventually Erin and Robley fall in love and gets married But the Fey weren’t finished with him yet In two different confrontations with Giselle and their High King some surprising facts are revealed That Erin is a descendant of Haldor the High King’s right hand man and that Giselle is no old crone after all She’s the daughter of the High King Áine Apparently Giselle knew where to send Robley and whyErin and Robley’s story is not directly linked to this one but True Malcolm’s is since they became Hunter’s adoptive parents Hunter had truly been treated as their eldest boy even though we find that True and Malcolm had 6 other children ever since It’s been a long time since Robley and Erin’s marriage and Hunter is now a fully grown man He has always been aware of his special abilities and ties with the Fae Hunter can sense people’s emotions can guess their inclinations I must add here that half of Erin and True’s kids are gifted as well Personally I found it to be great the combo of so many gifted people communicating in a way or talking about things that no ‘normal’ human beings do But I think they kept their abilities a secret except for the closest of relatives If anyone did sense anything no one made any trouble And why would they The MacKintosh care for their clansmen as much as they do for their own familiesGradually Hunter’s vulnerabilities are revealed as well Though he had been treated with love and respect he has always felt ‘less’ because of two factors; one he felt he doesn’t truly belong with the MacKintosh and two that no one from his own clan ever came to find him created a deep hurt within that he tried hiding most of the times Moreover Hunter is a very honorable man who would keep his words no matter what even if his reasoning are ridiculous These issues come to play big parts in the next chapters of the storyHunter has been away from home for sometimes to ‘experience’ the world or so to speak and to take part in jousting tournaments to earn rewards No one’s ever defeated him in any of those fights He’s rather a legend by now but Hunter knows he has a slight advantage over the others His ‘gift’ lets him know his opponent’s moves so there was no defeating him in any way This fact humbles and bothers him Hunter is not comfortable with his gift but he has no way of blocking it completely He’d rather he never had any gift to begin with Bombarded with people’s emotions all day can be tough for even a bada warrior like him Hunter also doesn’t want to acknowledge his blood relation with GiselleÁineBut there’s no avoiding the Fey in this case his grandmother when she wants to be acknowledged as Hunter soon finds out on his way home He’s lure

The Highlanders Folly Loch Moigh #3E to return to her time Hunter who is pledged to another begins to fall for the beautiful brave warrior as they fight side by side against a common enemy Now he must decide which matters his honor or following his heartExciting battles and intoxicating passion reunite in the third Novel of Loch Moigh from award winning author Barbara Longley. A fierce Highlander from the fifteenth century a faerie’s plot and a modern day time traveling maiden What’s not to love in that combinationRead on for my thoughts on The Highlander’s Folly No true spoilers promiseThis is the third novel in this series and I was a bit concerned because I have not read the others Sometimes you can jump into a series anywhere and others not so easy There were enough comments about previous stories in the early chapters that I could read Hunter and Meghan’s story without feeling I had jumped into the ending While not a stand alone in my opinion it didn't feel like I was lostWhen a Highlander knight crosses paths with a modern day martial arts instructor – well sparks are going to fly Then add into the mix that Meghan is totally unsurprised by the notion of time travel and you add another level to the storyI enjoyed the richness of details of the times conditions and how life is lived day by day I’m not so sure that Meghan did though It is a major adjustment from taking part in medieval tournaments for fun and actually living them in a life and death situationHunter is a man of his times arrogant most of the time sure that his way is the right way honorable to a fault Even though he has fae blood running through his veins he is none too pleased to have been tricked by Giselle into bringing Meghan back in time to her pastIt was fun deciphering the two languages used Hunter’s local brogue with its meaning and Meghan’s modern day conversation that often baffled Hunter Overall this was a charming sexy enjoyable tale Time travel is always a fascination and the author handled this aspect of the story extremely wellThe only part of this novel I took a bit of exception to was Hunter’s honor where it came into play where Sky and Meghan were involved He knew his intentions toward Sky from the start he had considered himself betrothed to her from the moment of her birth Yet he didn't mention this to Meghan even when he was having conflicting emotions about her He was falling for the maiden from the future but he didn't tell her that he was spoken for That bothered me – perhaps it is simply true to the nature of the “medieval beast” but it put his honor into uestion in my mind Again in my opinion perhaps you will see his actions differentlyI enjoyed this novel very much – enough to go searching for the earlier novels in this particular series That in itself says it was a very good read for meI would recommend this one It was face paced action packed and a passionate love story with a satisfying conclusion
