Title: My Highlander Cover Model
Skye Bancroft is a hard-working assistant art director at Night Moon Publishers. Dealing with the occasional spoiled and egocentric model is part of her job description. But she didn’t count on one so delusional to think he was a Scotsman from the highlands of 1814.
Cailin Thorburn is every woman’s dream—a warrior who is fierce, passionate, and wields a very large sword. Rendered unconscious during battle, he awakens in another place, time, and seemingly in another man’s body. Was it all a dream? Convincing the bonnie lass, Skye, that he is Cailin, the Highland warrior, is a daunting task.
Can an extraordinary man from another world prove he is who he claims to be? Will their attraction be enough, or is Cailin just a cover model in a kilt?

This was a fun short read. I enjoyed reading about the battle that Cailin was involved in then jumping to the present and reading about Skye and Roderick/Cailin.
Roderick who is the model in present day is posing for a highlander photo shoot that Skye is in charge of. He is a bit of a jerk and says all the wrong things to Skye but after an argument that he gets a lump on the head for suddenly he thinks he is Cailin from the 1800’s. I liked how the author tied in how Cailin and Roderick switched places. She made is seem possible. Sometimes it seemed that Cailin may have been a little too easygoing when it came to accepting the technology that we have though.
For me the book really took off when Cailin and Skye were together. Their chemistry was good and their interactions just made the book flow. At the beginning with Roderick he came across as a complete jerk that shows no tact whatsoever. Then later in the book he turns around and apologizes and said he gets nervous around her. The way his house was set up and the way his parents talked compared to the way he acted towards Skye and what we heard he did in his spare time just didn’t mesh well.
The ending did surprise me a little. It was a twist that I did not think off nor did I expect it but it did work well with this book. All in all I enjoyed this quick read.
