My 7 favorites things about ON HIGHLAND TIME: 
by Lexi Post
1. Torr: I so enjoyed writing this alpha hero with a kind heart, who refused to love anyone else after all the people he’s lost. He’s one of those bigger than life heroes that I totally had a crush on.

2. Diana’s swears: I admit these were fun to come up with. Some I had to cut, but I kept “Oh Shakespeare” and “Puck!” Can you tell her mother was an English professor who was adamant that ladies don’t swear?

3. Go-Lucky: The agents of Time Weavers, Inc. are very lucky to have this small man as their handler. He has some baggage, but doesn’t let that interfere with his job…most of the time.

4. Gealach Castle: Having been to Scotland many times, I had no problem picturing this wee medieval castle in the highlands. It’s a simple keep with a walled in courtyard with various small outbuildings like the stables, blacksmith and bakery.

5. Clan MacPherson: The people came alive for me as Diana met each one. Nessa was probably my favorite, but I also liked Braigh who’s dependable and knows how to treat his wife.

6. Control: I’ve always loved time travel, ever since I first read HG Wells the Time Machine, but what frustrates me is when the traveler has no control over the time leaps. That’s why my TWI agents all have a genetic ability to travel through the Timestream. Not only that, but because they are slightly advanced over us humans, they have a special ability, which seems rather innocuous at first, but comes in handy, like Diana’s ability to calm people.
7. TWI staff: I just love that each staff member of the company also has a special ability that helps the secret agency run. They have very different personalities too, which will come to light more and more as the series progresses. The spotlight is, of course, on the female time travelers and how and when they find their true loves.


For fans of sexy Scottish Highlanders who know how to treat a woman like a lady.

When someone changes history, affecting the future, Diana Montgomery, the most experienced agent of Time Weavers, Inc., travels back to 1306 Scotland to change it back. Her mission, to find the culprit and ensure a minor clan chief dies in battle as he originally had.

Diana is well-prepared to infiltrate the small MacPherson clan. What she’s not prepared for is Torr MacPherson, the ruggedly handsome warrior with a kind heart and a steadfast loyalty—the Laird she’s supposed to ensure dies.

**Note from Crystal: 
I am finishing up my review this evening. This is just a brief review. 

This is such a fabulous story and I truly enjoyed it. I was so spellbound by the first few pages I think it would easily have been possible to read this book in one sitting. I easily finished it in two. I could not put it down. I quickly bonded with the characters, the storyline was incredibly fascinating and held my attention. Lexi has created such fascinating idea with the Time Weavers, Inc members. 

If you enjoy a great steamy Highland story then you must read this one! Lexi Post always does a fabulous job no matter what genre she writes. If you are a Lexi Post fan, like me, then you must grab On highland Time now! You are going to love it! 

I can't wait to see what Ms. Post has in store for us with the other members of Time Weavers, Inc. I know I will be anxious to get my hot little hands on the next book just as soon as possible. 

Torr took her reaction in stride and began a tender assault on her neck.
She pushed against him, and he allowed her a little space. She was grateful because despite her training, she doubted she could do much to take down such a huge man, especially if she didn’t want to hurt him. But he kept his arms about her waist.
“What is it, lass?”
It was everything. She wanted to cry and laugh at the impossible situation she found herself in, even as her body shivered with a growing need. She simply shook her head and tried to step back, but he held her with gentle strength.
Didn’t he understand? She needed to put more space between them, in so many ways. Her breaths came quickly, her body flushed from the desire he’d ignited. A desire she never remembered experiencing before. She closed her eyes and tried to think of the rolling mountains beyond the castle walls, but they faded quickly and instead she envisioned Torr, cupping her breasts.
She snapped open her eyes to find him staring at her, a crooked grin on his face.
“I want ye, Diana. Ye have a fire in ye that calls me like the spring sun to the seedling.”
Oh, Shakespeare, now he was a poet, too? She couldn’t do this. He was due to die… She had to find the Disruptor… She had to—
His deep voice soothed her. “I understand. Life here at Gealach is new and strange, and I have possibly presumed too much, too soon. Ye miss yer clan, do ye not?”
She didn’t say anything, his kindness causing a lump to form in her throat. His warm, big body so close to hers with the scent of leather and the clean smell from his bath was so primitively male, he had her feeling safe, protected.
He pulled her body against his again. Instead of feeling physical attraction, she wanted to simply snuggle in. Hesitantly, she let her head fall against his shoulder.
As they stood there, his chest rising and falling in steady rhythm beneath her cheek, memories of her dad doing the same calmed her. When she’d done poorly on a test, not made the volleyball team, or when she was dumped by her first boyfriend in ninth grade, Dad had held her just like this. Torr would make a good father…except he was destined to die.
She stiffened. Did Torr have any children after the Disruptor saved him? He deserved children.
He reacted to her body language and stroked her back. “I know it is hard. I too have lost many of my family.”
She pulled back to look at his face, anxious to hear what he’d reveal.
“Unlike ye, I didn’t know my mother. She died shortly after Kerr was born. Five sons took too much out of her. But my brothers and my father made a family.”
She put her hand on his chest, feeling the sadness behind his words. This man deserved comfort more than she did. He had endured so much and yet still offered more to others.
He covered her hand with his and sighed. “The war has taken all but Kerr from me. Him and the few left in our wee clan. I’m glad ye joined us. I hope ye will eventually feel this is yer home.” His inner sadness called to her in a different way from his persuasive sexual advances. In that moment, he touched her heart.
“I’m sure I will. It is the only home I have now.” She grimaced inside at such a bald-faced lie.
