To Tame A Highland Warrior

"Hauntingly beautiful."—Rendezvous

Beyond The Highland Mist

"Poignant and sensual." —Publishers Weekly

From the Inside Flap

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....

Five years ago a fatal car crash killed her father and crippled her mother, Catherine, forcing Lisa Stone to work two jobs in order to pay cumulative medical bills and support herself and her mother. Adding to their burden, Lisa and her mother have recently been told that Catherine suffers from cervical cancer. Lisa's primary concern is caring for her mother, both emotionally and financially, but she is fast becoming disillusioned and exhausted. Her evening job, cleaning at a local museum, is Lisa's escape from the trials of the real world. While in her boss's office, fatigue overtakes Lisa and she falls asleep only to awaken when he and a colleague arrive early in the morning. Fearing termination, Lisa scrambles to hide under his desk and overhears the two talking about a rare, medieval artifact the museum has recently acquired. After they leave, curiosity gets the better of her and Lisa investigates the intricately designed box left on top of the desk. Upon opening it and touching the strange flask inside, the world shifts beneath Lisa's feet and she feels herself falling...landing at the feet of a giant man stepping from his bath.
Circenn Brodie, laird of Castle Brodie, quickly realizes that the woman, Lisa Stone, who inexplicably materializes at his feet from thin air, is not of his time. Circenn surmises that a long ago curse he cast on a fairy flask has sent this woman to him -- and to her destruction. Circenn is a man of honor, but how can he keep his long ago oath to destroy the bearer of the flask when Lisa appears to be innocent of its power? The longer Circenn delays fulfilling his oath, the more of a temptation Lisa becomes.
Emotions and sexual tension abound between Lisa and Circenn. Both are tormented by circumstances beyond their control.

This was a fun and light read that I throughly enjoyed. Ms. Moning has a flair for combining romance, laughter, and time travel in such a way that you find yourself drawn into the story and get lost in her world.
Lisa is working two jobs in order to take care of her mother that was dying of cancer. She is young and she feels as if she is missing out on life. One night while she was working as a maid in a museum she finds herself drawn to a relic and when she touches it she is sent back in time 700 years in the past to Scotland and to a very wet, and naked Circenn Laird of Brodie.
Circenn made a promise to kill who ever returned with the cursed flask but when he sees a very beautiful women in the most strange pair of legging he's ever scene, he wants to forget about his sworn promise to destroy her. Circenn is has his own problems he is immortal, has a promise he must keep to the templar knights that he is protecting, and he now finds himself drawn to the very lovely Lisa. Could his life get any more complicated? Why yes, yes it can.
Lisa wants to return home to her sich mother, but she is still finding herself drawn to the handsome Circenn. She is feeling emotions that she never had before. Soon they start getting closer but Lisa still can't forget her obligations that rest in the future. Can she have her happily ever after?
This book was so good I was sad to see it come to the end. I laughed, cried, and yes, fell a little bit in love with Circenn. If you love books that pull you into the story and location then you will love this one!

Lisa touches a Celtic artifact while snooping in the museum director's office, and is catapulted back in time to the fourteenth century, into the clutches of Circenn, a warrior laird. Naturally Lisa is a babe, and Circenn a sensual hunk, and they have immediate chemistry, but...there's a problem. Actually Lisa has her impediments in modern time, and Circenn has his own.

Karen Marie Moning's Highlander time travel romances tell varying versions of the familiar fish-out-of-water story: modern women in medieval Scotland, ancient gods running amok in the US Midwest. An aspect that sets them apart is the background story arc of the Fae. The Fae are the faries of old - full-sized human-form beings, no wings, but magical powers. There's a king, a powerful Queen, and Adam Black. Adam Black is Puck, by another of his names. He's Coyote, the trickster, who can also be unexpectedly compassionate. Adam Black is clearly a favorite of the author as he appears in several of the books and is the romantic lead in The Immortal Highlander.

Moning's Highlander novels are good romantic fun, definitely formed from the same mold, but it's a sturdy mold. It's not necessary to read them in order, although after you have read a couple you will be wondering how the characters fit together. There are family relationships among the human and Fae characters that it enhances the experience to be aware of.

If you like non-scholarly historical romances with a supernatural flair and some good bedroom scenes, you will enjoy The Highlander's Touch.

Ms Moning once again hands us a tale of love that transcends time. Our fiesty heroine--Lisa, finds herself with the weight of the world on her shoulders, when suddenly she's thrown back in time to land literally at the naked feet of the powerful, immortal Circenn Brodie. The differences between the modern woman and the medieval man cause moments of tension and misunderstanding...as well as several scorching scenes between the two. With Circenn, being immortal, and swearing not to go through the pain of losing love again, Lisa finds her way into his heart. The "gift" Circenn gives to Lisa is immeasurable-- his love; but, at what cost to all? You MUST read this book to find out!
From page one, we are swept into the characters lives, and become part of them until the very end. With stong emotions and extrordinary wit and humor, Karen Moning brings her characters to vivid life upon the page. One of Karen Monings finest works to date...I anxiously await her next book!!
