Going Back for Romeo by L.L. Muir Review
Going Back for Romeo was an entertaining read that I am happy to have picked up when I did. After reading some rougher books this one was a breath of fresh air. Muir provides a funny and confident heroine in Jillian MacKay and a sexy but cantankerous hero in Montgomery Ross a.k.a Monty. This time travel romance is definitely on the sweet side with no graphic sex scenes and no noticeable foul language. The story told was engaging so I did not find myself missing the overt sexiness that I enjoy in the majority of the books that I normally read. If you are looking for a quick and entertaining read this 99 cents bargain is well worth picking up! Going Back for Romeo is book 1 in the Muir Witch Project series and I will definitely get around to reading book 2 Not Without Juliet in the future.

Alone, with a Highlander, in his castle, on a cold dark night...
(Okay, so it wasn’t that cold.)
Jillian MacKay is being conned by a pair of eighty-year-old witches. They’re convinced she’s the perfect sucker to test a prophecy and they’re willing to bury her alive to prove it. Once she escapes and finds herself in 15th Century Scotland, she believes her return home depends on a heroic deed—she must rescue a plaid-clad Romeo and Juliet before tragedy can strike. The monster standing in her way, however, is a handsome Highlander who might just be her own Romeo...a Romeo she must leave behind.
Rather than surrender his secrets, Montgomery Ross would prefer to go down in history as the heartless creature who betrayed one sister and buried the other alive. When he falls in love with the prophesied faery who has come to expose him, he'll have to learn a wee lesson from the star-crossed lovers or suffer the fate to which he once condemned them.
