A laird trapped between centuries... Enchanted by a powerful spell, Highland laird Drustan MacKeltar slumbered for nearly five centuries hidden deep in a cave, until an unlikely savior awakened him.

Drustan kne A laird trapped between centuries... Enchanted by a powerful spell, Highland laird Drustan MacKeltar slumbered for nearly five centuries hidden deep in a cave, until an unlikely savior awakened him. The enticing lass who dressed and spoke like no woman he’d ever known was from his distant future, where crumbled ruins were all that remained of his vanished world. Drustan knew he had to return to his own century if he was to save his people from a terrible fate. And he needed the bewitching woman by his side.... A woman changed forever in his arms... Gwen Cassidy had come to Scotland to shake up her humdrum life and, just maybe, meet a man. How could she have known that a tumble down a Highland ravine would send her plunging into an underground cavern — to land atop the most devastatingly seductive man she’d ever seen? Or that once he’d kissed her, he wouldn’t let her go? Bound to Drustan by a passion stronger than time, Gwen is swept back to sixteenth-century Scotland, where a treacherous enemy plots against them... and where a warrior with the power to change history will defy time itself for the woman he loves....

    Yes, in case you're wondering, I'm even more ashamed than when I gave its predeccesor The Highlander's Touch three stars. It seems that I'm deteriorating into some obscure form of madness in which time-travelling, historical romance can illicit a four star rating out of me. They should name a damn charitable foundation after me to help other people suffering from this obscure mental illness. But it's honestly not my fault. The fault lies with Karen Marie Moning. There it is, folks. The face of pure Yes, in case you're wondering, I'm even more ashamed than when I gave its predeccesor The Highlander's Touch three stars. It seems that I'm deteriorating into some obscure form of madness in which time-travelling, historical romance can illicit a four star rating out of me. They should name a damn charitable foundation after me to help other people suffering from this obscure mental illness. But it's honestly not my fault. The fault lies with Karen Marie Moning. There it is, folks. The face of pure evil. She makes these RIDICULOUS books that you should blush at the idea of reading - readable, fun and hilarious. If I deign to pick up a Historical Romance - especially one in which time-travelling is involved - I would spend most of it groaning, rolling my eyes and looking for a wall to bash my head on. And yet, here we are. I've read two books in this series now and I have no intention of stopping. I mean, I totally could stop. If I wanted to... I could stop anytime... The strongest part of this book is, without a doubt, the characters. They're fantastic. Gwen and Drustan had me in hysterics. I thought this was going to be the usual pushy, chauvinistic male character with sex-pot-in-the-making virgin who admires his studly-studlyness until they have great sex and babies and we forget that they ever had issues. No. This is a story where the pushy, chauvinistic male character gets locked in the privy by the brilliant and stubborn female protagonist until he learns to behave himself. I feel this is a trend that already should have existed in many more romances. Because women have been writing 'romantic' men who're really just giant jackasses for waaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyy too long. I absolutely adored this book from start to finish and it's not because I like romances. Or history. Or time-travelling. It's because Karen Marie Moning has me wrapped around her twisted little finger as she kicks my ass with her story-telling ability and writing craft. I'm only glad I wasn't a fan of such books BEFORE I read Moning's, because otherwise she would have ruined Historical Romances as thoroughly for me as she's ruined Urban Fantasy with her Fever Series. Simply because she can, the heartless bitch!

Love the pic, and I'd sure like to meet that model just to see how good a Highlander kiss can be :)))) The story - I loved the whole concept, and it was well written, mixing time travel with druids and magic... Just wow! It's about Gwen, an american girl on vacation in Scotland. She is in search of a cherry picker and so far no man has been worthy enough. So one day, during a field trip, she falls into a cave and stumbles upon a body, a perfectly preserved specimen of human male perfection I guess you could say at that point that her cherry picking quest was definitely over Drustan awakens in this new world, he doesn't know what happened to him, and now must find a way to undo everything and restore the Keltar clan. Drustan - I so loved him one of the favorite Highlanders I've read <3 He is the head of his clan, and bearer of the druid lore. They have served and protected mankind for centuries, and it is his duty that his line continues, and the druid knowledge be perserved. Unfortunately, he awakens in the future, and finds his home destroyed, meaning that his line was broken and the lore forgotten. That's why he comes up with a plan that could make Gwen hate him forever... Gwen - a great heroine She's instantly attracted to Drustan (can't blame the girl) and she falls for him in the short time they had before he found his home. She decides to give her virginity to him, and they "do it" in the middle of the stone circle (some druid stuff). They form a bond, he vows love to her, and then attempts to go back in time to undo what has happened to him. BUT, the plan fails (doesn't it always), and Gwen finds herself alone in the past, with Drustan and his family believing her a crazed woman wanting to trap him in marriage XD Overall - This was such a great read, it really got me by surprise! I have to say the author's writing is waaaay waaaay better than the first one, and I'm so glad! I loved the fact that for almost first half of the book Gwen thought Drustan was a madman with his claimes that he's from the past, and almost all the second half Drustan believed Gwen was the crazy one with her claims of being from the future XD This was very well written, I could see that this kind of plotline could be developed in so many ways (bad ones at that), and am so glad this turned out the way it did :) Favorite scenes - when Drustan awakens and starts dressing himself, and Gwen notices the million and one knives on him loool - Drustan's first car ride - when they went shopping, him trying on jeans - HOT scene!! - he discovers his castle's ruins and is heartbroken - Gwen's first conversation with the Drustan from the past XD - when they lock him up to have the second conversation - the ending, oh how that got me in tears, it was just PERFECT!!!!

    Drustan and Gwen's story - I enjoyed this book, it was my first KMM book ever! This is one of KMM's funniest books. I love how Gwen was looking for a cherry picker to rid her of her virginity then when she saw Drustan she thought he looked more like a cherry tree chopper downer than a cherry picker. The storyline was very good, I love the part toward the end when Drustan remembers then they have a very passionate encounter in the buttery. Gwen was a great heroine, she was intelligent, honorable Drustan and Gwen's story - I enjoyed this book, it was my first KMM book ever! This is one of KMM's funniest books.

Gwen was a great heroine, she was intelligent, honorable and smart enough to figure out how to trap Drustan in his own guarderobe. This story was a great set up for the next book, Dark Highlander. Highly recommeded!

A larger than life hero, who is cocky, funny, protective, loving, worships his woman and is SCRUMPTIOUS! Drustan MacKeltar...RAWRRRRRR!!! A heroine who stands on her own will, she's mouthy, pushy, smart, challenges her man and loves him beyond reason! Gwen Cassidy...AMAZING!! A story that captivates, charms, tugs at the heart! Passion, desire and love that is breathtaking and heart-pounding...YES!!! Secondary characters that play a huge role in the plot and are so intriguing, you hope that you get more of them, in future books or stories of their own. I was overwhelmed with emotion while reading this book, but the last few pages made my eyes so wet, I could barely read to the end. I damn near passed out with Kip clutched in my hands! When I could finally breathe, I began to smile and I still can't get that shit-ass grin off my face. Thank you to my dear friend Kristen, who convinced me to step out of the box and read out of order. It was no easy task for her to do, but I trust her and knew she wouldn't steer me wrong. Not to mention all of my other GR friends who agreed with her and encouraged me to go for it. You were all right, I didn't miss a thing. This books starts what is a mini-series within a series. It was everything you all said it would be and more. Thank you!! Finally to Kris, who told me about her love for this series a while back. Why I didn't listen to you is beyond me. It's always been in the back of my mind and your profile pic was a daily reminder. You know me better than I know myself. Dark Highlander here I come!!

    Rachel Reads Ravenously

    2.5 stars Whelp I am in the minority. I enjoyed the first part of this book but the last 2/3's were not for me. I also just can't stand the term "make love" or "Love making" and found this book incredibly frustrating and too much instalove. There were moments I enjoyed, I want to read the next book but overall to cheesy for me. Maybe because of the year it was published? Moving on.

What I would give to have them babies roaming my body...oh my - im sweating here.... LMAO...Okay, now the review - Well, well, well looky what I stumbled across here – HUNKY HIGHLANDERS – my lordy lord, this book was more than I ever perceived it was going to be. If it wasn’t for my fabulous GR friend, Nissie, I would not have taken the plunge to read this so soon. Okay so about the story – This is my first time travelling book, and initially my thoughts on time travel are simply – meh – but when introduced to Drustan MacKeltar who is from the 16th century, I melted. This scot is a drop dead, kilt wearing hunk of spunk AND to make it all that much sweeter *drool drips from mouth* he goes completely commando! On the theory that if it isn’t constricted then it will continue to grow (hmm...an interesting theory I would love to test on any willing hunky participants)....Any who, gypsy’s cast a nasty ass spell on him to sleep for all eternity, only able to be awaked by sun and blood. He is placed in a cave where he sleeps for 500 years. That is until our minx of a heroine klutzily stumbles across his hidey hole and BAM SLAM THANKYOU MAM – the story get hot. Gwen is on vacation to Scotland, touring with a bunch of pensioners (completely by accident) – I found this funny because the same thing happens to me when I was 15. Went on a tour in Canada and It turned out to be a tour for pensioners. I actually ended up having a blast and came to respect the elderly much more. Her main goal while in Scotland – TO FIND A CHERRY PICKER...LMAO!!!! When Gwen falls into Drustens cave she awakens the hunk of spunk and instantly their passion for one another is palpable. Gwen sets out to help Drusten get back to his own time (she's not really aware of it, but she’s along for the ride), he needs to get back to his time to save his clan. Unfortunately he sends them back too far into time thus erasing himself. Gwen is then left to convince the 16th century Drusten that they are meant to be together. This was a wild ride, and I am so glad that I read it. I cannot wait to get my greedy little mitts on the next one, which if I gather correctly is about Drustens twin and equally as sexy brother. Happy reading ladies.

I had a goofy smile while I was reading it from the beginning until the end. The story is basically divided into two parts. -The first part is taking place in the 21st century when Drustan wakes up and Gwen thinks he is completely crazy -The second part is taking place in the 16th century when Gwen travels back in time, Drustan does not remember her and he thinks she is completely crazy. I honestly wished I had read this book and the ones that follow before the Fever series by Moning. Apparently as I realised Drustan is Christian's uncle. Christian is the druid who is helping Mac and in Fever we meet again Drustan and his brother Dugeous. Finally, I know that what I am about to say will sound very boring but doesn't the guy in the bookcover has the most kissable lips you have ever seen?

    This was a delightful book. Heartwarming and hilarious in turns, it kept my interest. I really enjoy the fact that KMM's heroines tend to be very intelligent and capable. It's nice to see that in romances. I don't see why a heroine can't be smarter than the hero or more accomplished. I'm glad that KMM doesn't adhere to that formula in her novels. Her heroines tend to be on the physically perfect side, but they are so nice, it doesn't annoy me. Drustan was delicious and he was a nice guy too. He This was a delightful book.

Her heroines tend to be on the physically perfect side, but they are so nice, it doesn't annoy me. Drustan was delicious and he was a nice guy too. He was yearning for a woman to love and accept him. Aww! The scene where Gwen says she loves him just melted my heart because it meant so much to Drustan. I love elements of Scotland and the historical aspects. The druid lore is interesting, and the physics aspect, mind-boggling. This book is steamy and sexy, but the love relationship is always at the forefront. I really loved the tender moments between Drustan and Gwen, and also between his father Silvan and his housekeeper, Nell. I have never been much of a time travel fan, but I really do like what KMM does with the genre. I like that she has plausible science and mixes the Druid lore with physics and mathematics so that you read this book and can definitely believe that Druid magic is just science in a different framework of understanding. The part that annoyed me was the priest's mother, Besseta. She was totally clueless about faith and fate. If only she had listened to her son and trusted that God would take care of him. But if she had done that, would Gwen and Drustan ever have met? Too much to ponder. At any rate, I'm glad I got to read this novel, for the hours of entertainment it gave me. It also gave me some things to think about, such as meddling with fate and how the search for knowledge should never overstep the boundaries of ethics.

    I loved everything about this book, starting with the yummy cover! Oh boy, I could stare at Nathan Kamp's lips for a lifetime!... ;) Now, focusing on the story itself... Once again, KMM gave us a more-than-wonderful hero (Drustan MacKeltar) but, this time, she gave us an amazing heroine (Gwen Cassidy) who, I admit, I loved better than the hero. And that's something, because I adored Drustan! Gwen was intelligent, funny, feisty and determined; Drustan didn't really stand a chance with her.

When she locked him in the garderobe to force him into "seeing reason", I did a little happy dance - only in my mind, of course... While I was reading the book, I kept wondering how KMM would solve the "changing the past" issue. I mean, (view spoiler)[once Gwen suceeded in preventing Drustan's enchantment in the 16th century, he wouldn't be in the cave for her to find in the 21st century, they wouldn't fall in love, and so on... (hide spoiler)] Aaargh, my mind went a little crazy over this, until I reached KMM's "resolution". Good and logical but, like Gwen said when Drustan explained what had happened, "this hurts my head." (LOL) I was planning on taking a break from the series after this book, but I just can't - not after having read Silvan's letter at the end! Thankfully, I'm late to the Highlander party and Dageus's book has already been released, so I don't have to wait. :)

I do plan to work my way through this series eventually, now that I have these 2 books under my belt. I love this book for 2 reasons... Drustan (H) & the story. What more could you ask for? I would say that I do love Gwen as well. I feel her & Drustan are perfectly matched. Their coupling, how it begins to where it leads, was beyond entertaining, heartfelt, & frustratingly erotic. I would definitely recommend you read this book. It has everything on it's pages.

    Un libro de "ficción-romántica" (si es que existe esa categoría) con viajes en el tiempo incluidos. Es una novela muy entretenida y he disfrutado mucho leyéndola. Quizá la primera mitad es algo plana ya que prácticamente no hay despliegue de personajes y locaciones, pues se centra en el conocimiento de los dos personajes principales, pero también tiene su encanto al abordar con un buen toque de humor problemas tan contemporáneos como tratar de dejar de fumar con un parche de nicotina.

Quizá la primera mitad es algo plana ya que prácticamente no hay despliegue de personajes y locaciones, pues se centra en el conocimiento de los dos personajes principales, pero también tiene su encanto al abordar con un buen toque de humor problemas tan contemporáneos como tratar de dejar de fumar con un parche de nicotina. Sin embargo, la segunda mitad atrapará hasta al lector más exigente en este género: intrigas, magia, pasión, excelentes diálogos y un despliegue de personajes muy queribles, que conquistan con su actuar y que entregan una historia secundaria muy emotiva. Lo mejor: la personalidad arrolladora y tenaz de la protagonista. Aunque he leído que los libros de la serie Highlander de la autora son independientes entre sí, éste en particular tiene una continuación que se deja entrever en sus últimas páginas: "El highlander oscuro". Si bien no es imprescindible leerlo, ya que esta entrega da un cierre completo a la historia principal, me muero de ganas de saber qué va a pasar con uno de sus personajes secundarios.

    3 Stars Overall Opinion: I struggled at times with this one tbh. I love the time travel idea of it, but it just fell a little flat for me. I felt like there was way too much inner dialogue going on (especially in the first half) and not enough actual interactions. The connection between the h and H felt mostly sexual, and I didn't get the progression of feelings to love. The ending also was a huge bummer. We get all this struggle for them and then an ending that didn't even feel complete! Oh wel 3 Stars Overall Opinion: I struggled at times with this one tbh. I love the time travel idea of it, but it just fell a little flat for me. I felt like there was way too much inner dialogue going on (especially in the first half) and not enough actual interactions. The connection between the h and H felt mostly sexual, and I didn't get the progression of feelings to love. The ending also was a huge bummer. We get all this struggle for them and then an ending that didn't even feel complete! Oh well. I did enjoy the characters themselves, and I also enjoyed their banter and the side characters. I'm going to go with a middle of the road 3 Stars, because while I didn't love it I didn't hate it either. Brief Summary of the Storyline: This is Gwen and Drustan's story. Gwen is tired of her life and is on a vacation in Scotland when she finds herself falling in a hole and landing on top of a half naked, hot man. After being in what seems to be a coma or deep sleep, Gwen somehow awakens him. Drustan is instantly confused by his surroundings and shocks Gwen when he declares that he is from the 16th century and somehow had been enchanted. Gwen tries to help him because she thinks he's mentally ill, but with their strong attraction and some undeniable magic she can no longer deny that he is speaking the truth. Gwen somehow ends up catapulted back into Drustan's time, and she must warn the past Drustan and his family of the upcoming danger. There are some funny moments, some sexy times, and some sweet moments...and they get a HFN ending. POV: This alternated between focusing mainly on Gwen and Drustan in 3rd person narrative. It did have some parts that focused on side characters as well. Overall Pace of Story: Not the best. It felt slow at times. I skimmed some of the decor descriptions, (seemingly) repetitive inner dialogue, and sex scenes. I don't think I missed much by doing so either. Instalove: Kind of. They don't have much basis to their relationship (other than lust) when they start confessing (at least in their inner dialogue) stronger feelings IMO. H rating: 4 stars. Drustan. I liked him. He was sweet, alpha, and loyal. h rating: 4 stars. Gwen. I liked her. She was smart, sassy, and brave. Sadness level: Low, no tissues needed Push/Pull: Yes (view spoiler)[Both of them push away and also pursue the relationship at times. (hide spoiler)] Heat level: Good. They have some good tension, chemistry, and scenes. I skimmed some scenes tbh because they did feel like a little bit too much at times. Descriptive sex: Yes OW/OM drama: Yes (view spoiler)[ When they are reunited, the H is engaged and about to marry OW and this causes some drama for the couple (he's never met this OW). (hide spoiler)] Sex scene with OW or OM: No Cheating: No Separation: Yes (view spoiler)[They are separated a few different times (at least physically), but there was no mention or suggestion of other partners during this time. (hide spoiler)] Possible Triggers: Yes (view spoiler)[The h is a virgin, it is implied the H has had many other partners before h (off page), loss of parents (off page), and unexpected pregnancy (on page) (hide spoiler)] Closure: This had an abrupt ending with not nearly enough closure for me! I wanted to know how they fared and how they created their future! It seems as though we'll see them in later books, but I am frustrated I didn't even get a glimpse into their HEA. I would call this a HFN ending just because of my so many unanswered questions, but others might be fine in calling it a HEA (view spoiler)[They're magically bound/married (no ceremony) and she is pregnant (hide spoiler)] Safety: This one should be Safe for most safety gang readers (view spoiler)[ - Does Not have cheating - Does Not have a descriptive sex scene with OW/OM - Does have both the h and H pushing away - Does have a few physical separations between the h and H - Does Not have abuse - Does Not have a HEA ending (see above) (hide spoiler)]

    Lo siento, en este momento no puedo decir que es un libro maravilloso, una historia como hacía tiempo que no leía, no, no puedo... Sencillamente no puedo porque estoy enfadada. Vamos a ver ¿cómo es posible que los demás libros de la saga estén descatalogados? ¿Qué se supone que tengo que hacer ahora? Ay, madre, que me he quedado sin saber que le pasó a Dageus...

Una novela muy divertida, con diálogos inteligentes, con momentos hilarantes sobre todo al principio de la novela, con ese momentazo en la tienda con los vaqueros y momentos muy románticos porque esta novela habla del AMOR en mayúsculas. Tiene momentos muy sexy con mucha tensión sexual, pero también habla del amor fraternal entre padre e hijos y hermanos, de no rendirse aunque te lo pongan muy difícil, de ser tú mismo. Y ese final… madre mía que final más bonito. Me ha gustado el ritmo de la trama, ágil, sin momentos que haya decaído y esos giros que te deja KO. Y lo mejor son los personajes princípiales, Gwen esa mujer fuerte, que no se rinde, luchadora, ingeniosa, inteligente y Drustan, si podemos hablar de un hombre sexy este ha de ser su rey, un hombre sumamente inteligente, fuerte, guapo pero a la vez inseguro por lo que le ha pasado y que debe de esconder su verdadera naturaleza. Y todos los secundarios, de los que destacaría a Silvan, el padre, ese hombre visionario y adelantado a su tiempo con ese aire de genio loco, me han encantado. "Alla donde vas tú voy yo, dos llamas encendidas por la misma ascua; el tiempo vuela hacia delante y el tiempo vuela hacia atrás, donde quiera que estés, recuerda" Una novela que se puede leer independiente sin tener que leerse los 3 anteriores, aunque ese final me ha matado y mataría a la autora porque he de comenzar el Highlander Oscuro ya. Muy recomendable a las amantes de la novela romántica de viajes en el tiempo

    He aquí un libro que tiene un poco de todo: risas, historia, romance, tensión, tristeza... Comienza en la época actual, cuando conocemos a la joven Gwen, desesperada por encontrar un hombre que la rescate de su tediosa vida, y al mismo tiempo convencida de que no habrá ninguno a la altura. Por supuesto se equivoca, aunque el elegido por su corazón (y por sus hormonas y óvulos, literalmente enloquecidos) es un highlander hechizado, testarudo, atractivo, mandón y que exuda testosterona por cada po He aquí un libro que tiene un poco de todo: risas, historia, romance, tensión, tristeza... Comienza en la época actual, cuando conocemos a la joven Gwen, desesperada por encontrar un hombre que la rescate de su tediosa vida, y al mismo tiempo convencida de que no habrá ninguno a la altura. Por supuesto se equivoca, aunque el elegido por su corazón (y por sus hormonas y óvulos, literalmente enloquecidos) es un highlander hechizado, testarudo, atractivo, mandón y que exuda testosterona por cada poro de su piel. Me he reído muchísimo con los primeros encuentros y, sobre todo, desencuentros y confusiones. El choque entre culturas está mostrado de una forma brillante. A continuación, llega el momento del viaje atrás en el tiempo y, con algún que otro contratiempo, descubrimos hasta qué punto pueden complementarse dos personas que apenas se conocen y sin embargo ya se han reconocido como almas gemelas. Me han gustado las continuas sorpresas, salvo quizás el giro final, que no lo he visto venir hasta que lo tenía encima y realmente no solo no lo esperaba, sino que me ha producido un impacto bestial. Pero vaya, no me ha gustado porque el momento crítico ha sido muy crítico, muy intenso y un poco largo, y la verdad, yo sufro mucho cuando ese clímax se alarga y los personajes parecen morir de angustia, de pena y de desamor. Sin embargo, la resolución tengo que decir que me parece magnífica, y el libro una verdadera joya del género. No solo me ha encantado Gwen, con sus temores, su inteligencia y su tesón, y Drustan, con su honestidad (salvo excepciones que dan juego a la trama, claro), su entrega y sus debilidades. También me ha enamorado Dageus, y me muero por conocer su historia. Muy recomendable, como toda la saga.

    3.5 Stars rounded up to 4stars. It was a good read. Based on the plots and writing it was definitely good and five stars worthy, but... I didn’t like some of the things. I can’t explain those BUTS without spoiling everything so better not to say anything. But one thing I can say is that constantly talking about a 25 years old heroine's virginity is definitely not cool. Every time the author mentioned something about heroine’s virginity, I consider to mark it DNF, "I am not reading an HP... Am I? 3.5 Stars rounded up to 4stars. It was a good read.

Every time the author mentioned something about heroine’s virginity, I consider to mark it DNF, "I am not reading an HP... Am I? Nay." A good plot kept me alive. The heroine was ok. She was strong but her thinking about the virginity and picking up a cheery picker monologue was irritating. The book was safe. I have some issues with the hero but he was honorable and celibate for some time. It was a time travel romance. And I liked the fact that (view spoiler)[the heroine didn’t travel back to past to live with him, here the hero come to the heroine to live in present time. (hide spoiler)] “If aught must be lost, ‘twill be my honor for yours. If one must be forsaken, ‘twill be my soul for yours. Should death come anon, ‘twill be my life for yours. I am Given.”

    I'm not going to write a lengthy review here as this book is years old and there are already so many reviews but I will say that it's a highly enjoyable Highlander romance with some supernatural time travel elements mixed in and plenty of humour as well as a well-planned and surprisingly complex plot. Drustan is a wonderful hero and I very much enjoyed seeing him waking in the 21st century after sleeping for hundreds of years and experiencing cars and lighters and such like.

    I laughed. I cried. I will never look at the color purple the same way again. The ending surprised me. I wasn't expecting that. And let's just say I'm thrilled by it. normally I read a series in order. With this one though, I started here since this is what was at my library(and it was the only one) I've been told it's ok to read it out of order. But, if the next book takes up from the letter that was left for Drustan and Gwen, I'll have to read it next. Anyone want to take pity on me and and me I laughed. I cried.

Soy así de guay, jaja) y, como dije mientras lo leía, prejuzgué y pensé que sería una novela con abuso de descripciones y más bien sosilla... Pues, ¡'nanai'! La trama es espectacular, con unos giros que para nada me esperaba; en varias ocasiones en las que la continuación de los hechos parecía previsible, acababa ocurriendo algo completamente distinto a lo imaginado. Por ejemplo, (view spoiler)[cuando tratan de volver al pasado, no llegué a imaginar que Drustan no conseguiría volver y solo lo haría Gwen; o, cuando los gitanos raptan a Gwen y Drustan va a por ella, tampoco imaginé que, al impedir hechizo, ella se esfumaría volviendo a su siglo (o soy medio lela o estaba tan metida en la historia que no me había parado a pensar en la paradoja... O ambas, jaja, el caso es que tampoco me lo esperaba). (hide spoiler)] Respecto a los personajes, ¡me han encantado absolutamente todos! Desde Gwen, una protagonista fuerte y con personalidad, hasta la pareja de ancianos del viaje a Escocia (de lo más entrañable ♥, no me digáis que no). Y ese Drustan... *suspiros* Pues, es Drustan, no hace falta decir más. Si bien es cierto que hay un detalle de la protagonista que me ha molestado desde casi el principio de la novela. Creo que, al poco de comenzar a leer, todas vamos entendiendo que GWEN ES FÍSICA Y MUY LISTA. Pero, que alguien me explique, ¿qué necesidad hay de que cada dos por tres saque algo relacionado con la física o con su inteligencia? Al principio es necesario para conocer más a la protagonista; después es normal, puesto que son sus conocimientos y la base de su vida; más tarde comienza a ser un tanto extraño; pero, es que llega un punto en el que resulta desesperante que siga diciendo que es una mujer extremadamente lista... A partir de algún momento, cada vez que leía algo relacionado, inevitablemente pensaba: ooootra vez. Y eso no es bueno... Aún así, es una historia muy buena, con personajes muy bien creados y una prosa, para mi gusto, muy acertada. Casi puedes ver los escenarios a través de sus descripciones que para nada se hacen tediosas. Y el que sea una historia tan imprevisible le da muchos puntos. Desde luego continuaré la saga, ese final deja con ganas de más. (view spoiler)[Que, por cierto, me ha parecido un final estupendo. Me ha encantado la entrada que le da al libro #5 lo ocurrido a Daegus y que no todo saliese perfecto, si ella hubiese podido volver al siglo XVI con Drustan, Silvan, Nell y Daegus, habría sido todo demasiado bueno (hide spoiler)] . Ahora ya no sé si continuar con el #5 o empezar con el #1... ¿Alguien me echa un cable? Jaja. Y no me enrollo más. ¿La recomiendo? Por supuesto; si te gustan las historias románticas, con viajes en el tiempo, buenorro incluido y alguna que otra escena de lo más hot... ¡Ni lo dudes!

    I'm so glad I tried this series again. I had given up after book 1 but then I read of whole bunch of favorable reviews about this installment. Wow, I'm kind of speechless. Druids, time-travel, highlanders and hot, hot romance. This book has it all and that ending left me swooning.

On an impulsive trip to Scotland to find said cherry picker, Gwen encounters a “cherry three chopper-downer” in the form a hulking Highlander who is stubborn as a mule and from the 14th century. Lovely. After a little mishap retrieving her pack, Gwen takes a tumble and lands upon Drustan MacKeltar, straddling the slumbering Highland laird who has been enchanted by a powerful spell five centuries ago. With sunlight and her blood, Gwen awakens Drustan only to find that he still believes he is in his century. With a vow to help this confused man, Gwen follows Drustan to the place where his castle once stood...only to find it gone. Using Drustan’s Druid powers and stones, he goes back in time, taking Gwen along with him. But when he miscalculates, they find themselves in a time further back before he was enchanted. While I liked the beginning of the book, it wasn’t until the dressing room scene that things started rolling for me. It was in this pivotal moment that I came to love Drustan and Gwen together: “What have you stuffed in your pants, MacKelter?” she demanded. “Nothing that wasn’t God-given,” he replied stiffly. Gwen stared. “There’s no way that’s part of you. You must have gotten a sock or something stuck. Oh, my.” Karen Marie Moning incorporates witty dialogue with a sensual miasma of words that any romance reader can appreciate. She may be popular with her urban fantasy books, but I don’t know if they could compare to the raw, erotic nature of her Highlander books. She does romance very, very well. And this book is no exception! Countless times Moning pulls something that alters her characters lives so much that when you finally reach the end, their happy ending is definitely worth the wait. Gwen and Drustan fall in love twice in this book and each time was better than the last.

Tamam, Highlander serisinden hiçbiri bir Barrons etmez, hatta hepsini toplasak yine Barrons etmez ama sonuçta İskoç erkeği bunlar da yani, boru değil. Drustan'ın içtenliği, dürüstlüğü, Gwen'in sevgisine olan ihtiyacı ve içindeki o sevilmeyeceğim korkusu o kadar içtendi ki!

    Wendy

    Durstan, a hot higlander that's as alpha as they come and loves unconditionally, meets his match with his heroine Gwen. She's smart and pushes all his buttons, both good and bad. The story is well paced and has a touch of pnr element and time travel which I enjoyed. I also adored the supporting characters in this and found that they played a major part in balancing this great little love story. This is a romantic and "feel good" read, that had me laughing out loud. It's a winner!

Ms. Moning, I want my very own Highlander! The story was beautiful. It was hot, steamy, romantic, and magical. Our heroine Gwen, was on a bus tour of Scotland. She decides to go for a hike. Her bag falls and as she goes to retrieve it, she also falls and lands on top of an enchanted Highlander. 500 year old curse broken, he awakens to find Gwen in a compromising position on top of him. What a great introduction to our Highlander Drustan MacKeltar. (For those of you that have read the Fever series, yes, he is a MacKeltar). So there you have it, a 21st century girl meets 16th century Scot. At first, you sympathize with Drustan. Everything is new and strange to him. But he is endearing, he is stubborn, he is handsome and a mathematical genius. He is strangely attired. He carries a lot of weapons. He is strangely attracted to Gwen. Gwen is a very likeable heroine. She is strong, smart, adaptable, and beautiful. Oh, did I mention that she was a virgin? There is also a time travel aspect to this story. Gwen is sent back in time where she needs to change a series of events that cause Drustan to be cursed. Kiss of the Highlander is one of those books that brought out a whole range of emotions in me....I laughed, I cried, I sighed... I ran to the library to get the next book....
