The Highlander’s Touch

Author: Karen Marie Moning    Series: Highlander #3

A Warrior Of Immortal Powers

He was a mighty Scottish warrior who lived in a world bound by ancient laws and timeless magic. But no immortal powers could prepare the laird of Castle Brodie for the lovely accursed lass who stood before him. A terrible trick of fate had sent her 700 years back in time and into his private chamber to tempt him with her beauty—and seduce him with a desire he could never fulfill. For this woman he burned to possess was also the woman he had foresworn to destroy.

A Woman Caught In The Mists Of Time

When Lisa felt the earth move under her feet, the fiercely independent 21st-century woman never dreamed she was falling…into another century. But the powerful, naked warrior who stood glaring down at her was only too real…and too dangerously arousing. Irresistibly handsome he might be, but Lisa had no intention of remaining in this savage land torn by treachery and war. How could she know that her seductive captor had other plans for her…plans that would save her from a tragic fate? Or that this man who had long ago forsaken love would defy time itself to claim her for his own….

This book may contain explicit intimate scenes, so if you are not 18+ then I probably wouldn’t recommend it for younger readers.
My Review

I was first introduced to highlander stories from Diana Gabaldon’s great Outlander trilogy that I wanted to venture into more stories written by arrogant, cocky, ruthless but yet charming highlander’s and Karen’s novel — The Highlander’s Touch did not disappoint. Circenn, an immortal half human half fae Highlander whom casts a spell on a flask that is most prized by the Tuatha De Dannan. The flask will magically return to Circenn’s possession when touched – but it doesn’t come alone, it brings Lisa Stone with it. Shocked to the bone, not knowing what on earth happened to her, Lisa is now trapped in the 16th century Scotland in Brodie castle with a powerful highlander. Circenn isn’t happy that she is there and wishes her to be gone. Soon he entangles himself with Lisa – having to marry the lass. Eventually they warm up to each other and he finds out why Lisa longs to return to her time – her mother is sick and dieing. One day Lisa magically returns to her time to be with her mother. With the help of Adam Black (4,000+ year old Tuatha De Dannan and happens to be Circenn’s dad), he helps Circenn change Lisa’s future and makes it much brighter for her and happier.

“Good night, Lisa. Sleep with the angels.” Her eyes stung from quick tears. It had been her mother’s nightly benediction: Sleep with the angels. But then he added words her mother never had: “Then come back to earth and sleep with your devil, who would burn in hell for one night in your arms.”

Karen always manages to add just the right amount of humor to her highlanders – so much so that I can’t help to chuckle at them many many times before the book is over. This was my first read of Karen’s Highlander series – yes I did read them out of order which it doesn’t really confuse a person if doing so – an it made me fall in love with these big sexy brooding men that she created. I have yet to see any other author write or create tales such as Karen does.
