I could feel the surroundings, s A clean, wonderful time travel romance. I love how in Lynn Kurland’s books we get to revisit previously novelized characters, seeing as her book follows a family tree.
I liked this book. I loved this book for the mere fact that it was clean. Garcen on a hunt for her books. But being the Highland gentleman he is, he finds himself helping her and learning more about her and falling for her.
I cannot begin to say how much I love this book.
When in Scotland, look out for white, fuzzy impediments to your journey. If you love Time Travel Romance with lots of good actionsuspendsand falling in love with handsome Hero’s and interesting Ladies you won’t be disappointed reading these Books by Lynn Kurland.
Refresh and try again.
I really liked the characters of Patrick and Madelyn. Lyhn only thing that annoyed me is that there are other time travel books written by this author about other family members of Patrick’s but I could not find out the order.
But his marriage ended up being a travesty when he found out his wife was being unfaithful and was bearing another man’s child. It kept me reading and it made me want to go and read the other books in the series, especially the ones about Jamie and Ian.
Until she sees a man standing on a windswept moor, a Highlander full of secrets and longing, and Madelyn knows she has seen her destiny. I liked it, but I didn’t feel the connection between these two, one minute he is being a douche and the next he just off and kisses her, no build up, zero romance To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up.
Instead she is attracted to Patrick Macleod, who hates life ever since he lost his cuckolding wife and child six years ago. I just never felt any real chemistry between them…ever. So a story about time traveling in Scotland just makes a great store to me! This is certainly better than some of her more recent attempts From This Moment On was good but could’ve been better and brings you back into the fold of the MacLeods.
Well, I admit I was pretty disappointed in this one. Madelyn was a strong woman who held up under very tough circumstances. There were a couple of parts that were a little cheesy, but despite that the author kept me interested. Somehow during high school, in between bouts of Verdi and Rossini, she managed to find time to submerge herself in equal parts Tolkien, Barbara Cartland and Mad Magazine.
Patrick MacLeod is 35 and at a point in his life where love means something to him, but women don’t. It was such and endearing story. He hasn’t the heart for love, nor the time for rescuing maidens in distress of their own making. Very frustrating to me to read a book that goes on and on, when not necessary. As an attorney myself, I must say I found this plot twist unbelievable and even vaguely offensive. I have not been reading them in order, but I enjoy them tremendously.
It totally skipped the sex scenes, which is fine with me, but the romance was great.
A Garden in the Rain
Nov 07, Angela rated it really liked it Shelves: Lynn Kurland is beloved for her portrayals of the time-traveling MacLeod family of Scotland. It was a little drawn out, but that’s only because the characters were completely incapable of talking about their feelings. May 25, Deanna rated it liked it. I think this is thw first but I’m not sure. Adding insult to injury, he steals lnyn clothing and passport, causes her rental car to be repossessed, and follows her around as she sightsees in an attempt to ruin her trip and mold her to his will.
Madelyn’s fiance, who like herself is a lawyer and happens to work for the same law firm, up and tells her that he is calling off their wedding not long before the happy event is suppose to occur. I actually gsrden reading about pages in, but was so in to the story, I forced myself to finish. Patrick MacLeod is haunted by his past, by events he had no control over and wishes desperately garfen could change. Madelyn Phillips was pretty much a walking disaster.
A Garden in the Rain : Lynn Kurland :
I wish I had seen more of them and less of an annoying wench who weeps and weeps and weeps. Kurland does such a good job giving these medieval time travelers such believable ways to make money in the future! Status Lynn Kurland — primary author all editions calculated Griesbach, Cheryl Cover artist secondary author some editions confirmed Martucci, Stanley Cover artist secondary author some editions confirmed.
And this one is just as much my favorite Story as all the others I recommend this Book. Kurland is a vivid writer and the mix of humor and sincere emotion in her dialogue is absolutely wonderful.
So knowing that she is going to have to find another, she decides to go on what was suppose to be her honeymoon to get away from it all. A trip she had dreamed of her whole life.

Now, in Patrick’s story, we get to see what exactly it was that happened to him while he was in the future and t In the book A Garden in the Rain, we get the story of Patrick MacLeod. Various family members have traveled to modern-day Scotland from their home in the 13th century Highlands.
Even so, this would have been a 4 star read. What further strains credulity is that her ex is painted as being so obviously dreadful that anyone who comes into brief contact with him can easily discern his sliminess, and yet the supposedly brilliant Madeleyn fell for him.
