When Maggie Graham finds herself transported back in time during a dream holiday to Scotland to 1711, she understandably finds it difficult to adjust. As she takes her first steps into history, she stumbles into the middle of a battle between two highwaymen and the authorities. She's rescued by one of the highwaymen but the other is shot; Maggie soon finds herself helping her rescuer, Quinn MacIntyre, to find out whether his companion, Ian MacGregor, is dead or seriously injured.

Maggie doesn't initially tell Quinn that she's from the future. She's not sure about him, for a start, and she's trying to come to terms with her jump through time. However, she soon finds herself attracted to Quinn. But can they rescue Ian? Can she keep herself safe in a rough and basic world, and is there any future with Quinn when they are from different times?

Highland Rogue is a reasonable light read with good pacing and some interesting characters. The historical detail in terms of dialogue sometimes let the book down, and many of the events are rather difficult to believe in - for example, Maggie's midnight walk in her pajamas to an ancient cairn. Those who like Scottish romances with alpha males and a time-travel twist should nonetheless enjoy this story, as long as not too much is expected of it.
