Robbie MacBain is a foster parent trying his best to help troubled teens who kept scaring away housekeepers. He will find help from Catherine Daniels who was on the run from her ex-husband who had abused her. There will be another burden thrown on his shoulder when the old priest tells him he has to save the highlanders from traveling back in time. Robbie will have to travel back in time to find a book of spells to stop the spell from happening. As Robbie travels through time Catherine will help keep the teens protected.
Tempting the Highlander is the fourth book to the series Pine Creek Highlander by Janet Chapman. I liked this book. I thought there was more action in this book with what was going on, which would make sense as Robbie was time traveling back to his father’s time.
Catherine’s character was someone I liked. She was abused by her husband but she kept going for her kids. She did not break down but made a move that would get them away from their past. Robbie helps Catherine by giving her the housekeeper job. Robbie’s character turned out to be a strong man with good morals and a kind heart. I think there was still some of the highlander teaching in him with being a little demanding but it wasn’t overbearing. There will be a romance building between Catherine and Robbie. My hope was that Robbie didn’t get stuck in the past so he could keep his relationship strong with Catherine.
I liked that Chapman had Robbie needing to time travel to save his family. There will be several surprises when time traveling happens. I am reading the fifth book next. I only have a few more to read to finish off the series.
