Dermot is immortal, born in the fifth century, and trying to break out of his eternal existence. He knows that the key to doing this is finding the reincarnated soul of his wife. Heart Of The Druid Laird is a book that encompasses many genres, some better than others, to deliver a well-written romantic novel. Of course this leads into the whole idea of reincarnation — the reader who believes only in what can be explained may have to suspend belief in order to enjoy it.
The first half of the book is very enjoyable. The genres weave in together well, the imagery is good, the dialogues too. For love to work the reader needs her to transition slowly, but for lust nothing needs work except chemistry, which the characters have in bounds. Overall, premise was okay, but the story was way too long and boring.
Based on this book, I won't try this author again. I have read this story, and now have the audible version. The performance, added depth to it and made more enjoyable, the accent gave it more character. Any additional comments? I wish this had been a series it was so good. Loved Dermot and Sidney. Hated Aine. Great story of immortal Highlanders, and I do love Highlanders. I've never read this author before but I intend to see what else she has to offer.
Lots of dialogue and some great sex. What more could you ask for? The narrator did a spectacular job. The narrator was good. It was worth buying.
I'm tired of characters in books not trusting their hearts, fearing love, and treating their beloved with angst and snobbery. The lead couple's inability to stop flouncing off in anger and finish important conversations was the most irritating thing in this book. I got this book after reading and loving the Loch Moigh series but I think the quality of that series is far superior.
I did like how Longley ran Zoe and Sydney's love stories together though. Great way to fill in the background info. This title is included in Audible Escape.

After that, I lose interest. Share this: Twitter Facebook. I am a goddess—omniscient, immortal and all powerful. The narrator does an amazing job with her Scottish accent at least to these American ears and in bringing the characters to life in your mind's eye. No man had the right to be that gorgeous.

Kindle Customer Did Not Finish Trite and overwrought, one dimensional characters, lazy descriptions. Eva George lives in a small town where she runs a tiny boutique with her friend Zoe. One night, she receives a warning from a scary faerie-like ghost, telling her to avoid a Scottish man who is coming for her.
The next day she is blown away when a Scot enters her shop, demanding that she go to lunch with him.
Sidney refuses but this rugged, sexy man will not take no for an answer. He makes her feel sad and angry at the same time, but there's also a strong attraction that makes her want to wrap her arms around him. I found it excellent, a magical tale that takes you on a journey like no other.
It has great dialogue, slight humor and plenty of romance.
