The most valiant time guardian saves his soul mate from an unorthodox time traveler wanting to steal her heart to gain control of the timeline.

Murdo McEwen's stuck in present-day Scotland with a bent time-travel key and only swordsmith, Katie Innis, can repair it. Duty requires he return to his time. His ticket home relies on a lonely woman haunted by more than the apparitions visiting her. Her track record with men keeps her distant. And ghostly events keep pushing them closer together. Earning her trust will require the kind of patience only a valiant time guardian learns during his twenty years of apprenticeship. If time-travel duty, romance, and a bit of magic don’t help them realize their destiny resonates in mysterious fairy SWORDSONG, all known history could change.


I have mixed feelings about Swordsong. The blurb sounded so intriguing, and the first few chapters were engaging and kept me going. But somewhere after that, things just got a little bit confusing. The heroine's friends drove me crazy, for one, with their constant bickering and one's snotty, jealous, childish attitude. There wasn't too much interaction between the hero and heroine. There were also a few inconsistencies with the characters.

Now, the cover is absolutely gorgeous. Breathtaking and colourful. The writing style is great and the author has a wonderful imagination. The plot is pretty unique and had some great scenes. I have a weakness for time travel romances, which is what lured me to this book in the first place. Mixed feelings aside, I would still check out other titles by this author.
