Helen Adams has a knack for finding lost objects, but the Simon McAllister she finds isn’t what she expected. The missing California teen is now a grown man—a kilted, sword wielding, Highland warrior.

A mysterious Druid book and Helen’s sixth sense send her to Scotland in search of a missing boy. After being attacked by strange men dressed in medieval garb, a handsome, desirable hero answering to the boy’s name rescues her. No one is more surprised than she to find herself in sixteenth century Scotland. Unable to deny the reality of time travel, Helen discovers smoldering passion with a man destined to leave her.

Simon has lived his Druid life in two very different worlds, two vastly different times, and when Helen practically lands in his lap, he knows his life is about to change forever. There are enemies in California lying in wait for her, and an army in Scotland closing in on his family. Simon is the only person who can protect her. But when she learns his most guarded secret, will she still want him?
Can Helen love a Highland Shifter?

Highlander Shifter by Catherine Bybee is a terrific paranormal time travel romance and it have to be honest it drew me right in from the beginning. I met this amazing author at the RT convention in Chicago and the moment I saw the cover of this book I knew I had to read it. I love shifters and time travel and mixed into one is definitely a bonus. When I started this book I didn’t knew it was part of a series, but that doesn’t matter because this story can read as stand alone.

Helen is a strong and determined woman from the 21st century; who has an amazing gift, she can find any object or person she is looking for.  It amaze me how strong Helen really is, especially when she’s thrown back in time and meet the very person she’s been looking for. Only he is not a teenage boy anymore, but a strong handsome highland warrior. Although everything is strange to her, she adapts quickly and helps these Druid men and women like they are her own family.

I haven’t read the previous books in this series, so I cannot compare young Simon with this grown man; but Holy Moly what a fine specimen he is. Not only is he drop dead gorgeous but has an amazing power too. When he meets Helen, you can feel the attraction between them even thought they just met. I just loved the scene where Helen discovers Simon’s shifting ability and the way she handle it.

The secondary characters Duncan & Tara, Todd & Myra, Fin & Liz and many other were great. I really want to get the three previous novels in the series too, so I can see how they find each other.

I only have one little criticism and that would be the major cliffhanger at the end. How could Ms. Bybee do that to us readers and leave us with this empty feeling. I’m dying to get my hands on the next book and see how that is going to turn out.

I highly recommend this novel to fans of paranormal / time travel romance; you won’t be disappointed when you pick up this book.

That was exactly what I've been thinking, so I had to read it.
