He would sell his warrior soul to possess her. . . .
An alluring laird...
He was known throughout the kingdom as Hawk, legendary predator of the battlefield and the boudoir. No woman could refuse his touch, but no woman ever stirred his heart—until a vengeful fairy tumbled Adrienne de Simone out of modern-day Seattle and into medieval Scotland. Captive in a century not her own, entirely too bold, too outspoken, she was an irresistible challenge to the sixteenth-century rogue. Coerced into a marriage with Hawk, Adrienne vowed to keep him at arm's length—but his sweet seduction played havoc with her resolve.
A prisoner in time...
She had a perfect "no" on her perfect lips for the notorious laird, but Hawk swore she would whisper his name with desire, begging for the passion he longed to ignite within her. Not even the barriers of time and space would keep him from winning her love. Despite her uncertainty about following the promptings of her own passionate heart, Adrienne's reservations were no match for Hawk's determination to keep her by his side. . . .
If you've been reading my reviews for awhile, you have come to understand that I do not like half naked - or just plain naked people on the covers of my books. I barely like having any person on my book covers - naked or clothed. So, it took me a while to get this book at my library. Once I did get it, however, it took me a day to read it. It's really good! Now - let me step back a little. Do any of you read the Smart Bitches Trashy Books podcast? If you don't already, I very much recommend it. Well, the main podcast person, Sarah, says that some books are so addicting that she refers to them as "crack." This book - is crack ladies and gents. Unlike the Fever series by Moning, that I believe the masses will like because it has more action/adventure than sexy times (in the first book - I haven't read the rest of the series), the Highlander series is silly at times, X-rated, and addicting. There's a highlander that has slept with every living woman during his time (it seems), fairies, and, oh yeah, TIME TRAVEL. I don't think I would have liked this book as much if it didn't involve time travel, actually. I love that Adrienne came from the future and has the sass of her time too. Hawk is a flawed, strong, and sexy hero. Anyway - I loved this book because it reminded me of a fairy tale...except this is an x-rated fairy tale. Yeah :)
