"Dark Victory" by Brenda Joyce [3 1/2]

A dark, ruthless Highlander, the Black Macleod has refused his destiny.
His life is revenge for the massacre of his family. His enemies' insults -
that he is a man of stone - only amuse him.
But fate is impatient, and when a woman from another time dares to summon him,
he cannot resist her powers - or her...
A schoolteacher by day, Tabitha Rose uses her magic to protect others by night.
When the vision of a dark Highlander, bloody and burned, appears to Tabby,
she knows she has been called to help him, no matter how frightening he might be.
But what Tabby doesn't expect is to be taken against her will to his dark, violent time.
And when evil begins to stalk her, she realizes she must fight for far more than his destiny - she must fight for her love....
This is book Four in the Masters of Time Series.
The reason why this book is half a point less than the rest, is that I found it a bit frustrating in the fact that there was so much talking between the characters and not enough action going on. The character of Tabby was a little annoying for me because she always second guessed herself and then had to have a discussion with Macleod about it.
Macleod was a strong character, he probably isn't my favourite warrior, but these two characters suit each other.
The basic story was OK, not as good as some of the other books.
I rate this book 3 1/2 stars.
