**2005 PEARL WINNER - BEST TIME TRAVEL**
POWERFUL. SENSUAL. SEDUCTIVE.
Powerful. Sensual. Seductive. He is all that is shamelessly
erotic in a man. In her sexiest Highlander novel yet, New
York Times bestselling author Karen Moning stirs up a
sizzling brew of ancient mystery and modern passion as she
brings together a devilishly handsome Celtic warrior
trapped in time . . . and the woman who's about to pay the ultimate price for freeing him. Age-old secrets haunt them. Deadly danger and irresistible desire shadow their every move.
It's a relationship for the ages. And all that separates them is a mere thirteen hundred years. . . .
Jessi St. James has got to get a life. Too many hours
studying ancient artifacts has given the hardworking
archaeology student a bad case of sex on the brain. So she
figures she must be dreaming when she spies a gorgeous
half-naked man staring out at her from inside the silvery glass of an ancient mirror. But when a split-second decision saves her from a terrifying attempt on her life, Jessi suddenly finds herself confronting six and a half feet of smoldering, insatiable alpha male.
Heir to the arcane magic of his Druid ancestors, eleven
centuries ago Cian MacKeltar was trapped inside the Dark
Glass, one of four coveted Unseelie Hallows, objects of
unspeakable power. When the Dark Glass is stolen, an
ancient enemy will stop at nothing to reclaim it, destroying
everything in his path--including the one woman who may
just hold the key to breaking the ninth-century highlander's dark spell. For Jessi, the muscle-bound sex god in the mirror is not only tantalizingly real, he's offering his protection--from exactly what, Jessi doesn't know. And all he wants in exchange is the exquisite pleasure of sharing her bed.
Yet even as Cian's insatiable hunger begins to work its
dark magic on Jessi, his ancient enemy is about to obtain the final and most dangerous of the Unseelie Hallows--and the ninth-century Highlander must stop him from getting it.
Nothing less than the very fabric of the universe and two
passionately entwined lives are at stake--as Cian and Jessi
fight to claim the kind of love that comes along but once
in an ice age. . . .
