Quote of the day: “I’d have been dead a long time ago if not for my friends, one of whom had just jumped off the cliff after me.
I’d have been a lot more appreciative if he hadn’t pushed me first." Cassandra Palmer ― Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance

The Kiss of the Highlander by Karen Marie Moning

Kiss of the Highlander (Highlander, #4) Kiss of the Highlander by Karen Marie Moning

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I'm going to make this review a bit shorter than usual because I'm so tired that I'm dead on my feet. But I want to get across that it's not because it doesn't deserve one, this book is gold! A Must for Paranormal Romance lovers!

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....

My thoughts:
Let me start off by saying WOW. I'm already a HUGE fan of Moning's FEVER series so I found it natural to look into her other books, and I'm sooo glad I did. I know Kiss of the Highlander is book 4 in the series, but I heard you can read it without the previous books, so I checked it out.

Kiss of the Highlander was amazing. I don't know what I expected from this series but this was far beyond what I imagined. It was thrilling and face paced. The romance was to die for, and the characters were brilliantly written. I loved that just when I thought I knew what was going to happen, Moning would sneak in a secret twist that made me at the edge of my seat. I am dying to read the next book (The Dark Highlander) because of the awesome ending in this book. Sometimes I find Cliffhangers not so great, but Moning always knows how to end it with enough information for so that when you get to the big ending you don't find it flat and empty. And naturally your begging for more! Even though the FEVER series is still my favorite(so far) I have HIGH hopes for this series. I'm off to read The Dark Highlander!
