Helen has a sixth sense of being able to find people or items. Her gift leads her to Simon McAllister, a teen that went missing a few years ago. Only this boy is a sword-yielding man now, living in 16th century Scotland with a family of Druids, who think nothing of time travel, magic and shape shifting.
Simon has lived in both worlds 16th century and the 21st century. Helen has enemies in her time and there is a war threatening Simon's family in Scotland, but Simon will do what he must to protect Helen and his family. The moment Helen arrives in his world, he knows the Ancients brought them together for a reason and his destiny will now be linked with hers. The attraction between them is obvious, but will Helen be able to accept his guarded secret of being a shifter?
HIGHLAND SHIFTER from the first page takes the reader on a journey to discover the mystery behind the ancient book and the pendant that possesses power beyond belief. The Druid magic and the secondary characters all add to the charm of this time travel where the past and the present intertwine. Helen handles the time travel well, but there is still the vulnerability that is expected when one's life has been drastically changed. Simon is fierce, loyal and a man of honor in every sense of the word. Helen and Simon's attraction to each other is heartfelt as they work together to solve the mystery that links both their worlds together.
This is the fourth book in the MacCoinnich series, but it can be read as a standalone. I have not read the other books, but look forward to catching up on the series. I must know how Simon's loving family began their journey. At the end of Highland Shifter, Ms. Bybee teases the readers with a sneak peek of a future book in the MacCoinnich Time Travel Series.
