**I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review**

Isobel MacInnes wakes up in present-day California, lunches in medieval Scotland, and by ten days’ end, falls in love with a man and his country, only to lose them in a heart-wrenching twist of fate . . .

Found in the arms of her second soul mate . . .

Forced to balance the delicate strands of time between two millennia . . .

Shocked by revelations rewriting the very foundations of history . . . of everything.

Isobel, a rising-star archaeology student, is dropped into two ancient worlds without warning . . . or her permission. Her fiery spirit resists the dependency thrust upon her. Amid frustration at her lack of control, she helplessly falls in love. Twice.

She struggles to adjust to the unimaginable demands of two leaders of men—a laird in the thirteenth-century Highlands and a Pict chieftain in a more ancient Scotland. Isobel transforms from an academic, hell-bent on obtaining archaeological recognition, to a woman striving to care for those she loves, and ultimately . . . into a fearless warrior risking everything to protect them.

An amazing time traveling tale about love, duty, and honor.  
Forged in Dreams and Magick was my first time travel novel and I loved it. I don't really read to many Highlander novels either but I'm thinking I need to change that. There is just something so damn sexy about them, I'm definitely going to add more of them to my TBR, lol. Iian totally captures my heart, just like he does Isobel, and the "romantic" scenes are AWESOME!

Isobel is an Archaeology student who was in Scotland attending to a family matter when she comes across an ancient artifact that she thinks will launch her career in the world of Archaeology. Little did she know that it would totally change her life in a different way. When she asks a friend of hers, Iian to take a look at her find, they are both taken back in time to the thirteenth century Highlands of Scotland. Iian is the Laird of the castle and hopes to keep Isobel in his time as his Lady. When she is finally feeling like she has things under control and things are going great, BOOM, she's brought even further back in time and falls in love again. 

I really enjoyed this book. I've mentioned before that I absolutely love when a main character or characters are Archaeologist. It's one of the fields that has always captured my interest and attention, and who wouldn't love to come across some ancient artifact, with the added bonus of being a time traveling contraption, lol. Iian is an all around great character, he has the whole dominant male going for him but he is also sweet and will do anything for his woman. And Isobel is my kind of girl! She's smart, beautiful, but not weak at all, takes control of her situations and does what needs to be done not only for her, but the ones she loves. When she travels in time for the second time, I have to admit I was a bit sad about it, I was hooked on Iian, so when she falls for Veloc, it threw me for a loop. I'm totally team Iian. ;) As it turns out though, her journey with Veloc and Iian is only the beginning and I absolutely cannot wait to see what happens next!
