"Drustan MacKellar is a yummy hero!"

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of Kiss of the Highlander by Karen Marie Moning (September 2001). When I get an ARC this far out, I try to avoid discussing it until the month prior to its release, but in this case, I couldn't resist and wanted to share with you what I thought. I have been a fan of Karen Moning since her first book, Beyond the Highland Mist, and this book does not disappoint. In my (humble) opinion, it is her best book yet. I absolutely loved it!

Drustan MacKellar is rudely awakened from his enchanted spell by Gwen Cassidy, who falls on top of him when she plunges down a ravine in modern-day Scotland. He thinks that she speaks and dresses oddly, but that doesn't stop him from wanting her. When he finds out what's happened to him, he enlists her aid in his efforts to return to his own time.

There were a lot of twists and turns in the plot the kept you guessing. She has a great way with words, and you can just imagine yourself almost part of the scene she is describing. Drustan MacKellar is a yummy hero!

Don't miss it!

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....
