Beyond the Highland Mist
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. . . .

Opening Paragraphs of book so full of hyperbole that I contemplated returning book to eLibrary - It was AWFUL. I made it through the prologue slightly unamused - by the second paragraph of page one of chapter one (where it mentioned his manhood, the likes of which no other man possessed...)- I was done. I really tried to finish the book - but just couldn't.

If you are looking for a book with zero plot progression, poor character development and sex scenes pulled from the pages of penthouse - then this is the book for you.

Adrienne de Simone is tumbled out of modern-day Seattle into Scotland year 1513. She soon finds herself married to Hawk, the Laird of Dalkeith.

Hawk has never met a woman who could say "no" and is thrown through a loop with Adrienne. For her part, Adrienne's had her heart broken by a handsome man and vows never to trust any good looking male again.

As the two begin to fall-in-love neither realizes this is all a game for the fairies. And like any game, once it's no longer fun it has to end.

Adrienne and Hawk were a fun couple to watch battle wits. I thought the story was good up until they admitted their love for each other. They held out for so long that when it's finally out in the open they then have to battle the big evil.

To anyone that enjoys time-travel romance or Scottish heroes I would definitely recommend checking out this book or any other by Karen Marie Moning.
