Highlander Series by Karen Marie Moning

Beyond the Highland Mist (Highlander #1)

by Karen Marie Moning
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....
Karen is a new author I stumbled upon and I have been addicted to her book since then.   She is my feel good drug and I hope she keeps on writing. This is the debut book in the series and I must say... there are lots of mature lingo and lots of sexual intt’s a pretty good read and very comical… I caught myself LOL!... but then again Karen knows how to describe horny-ness and she is well versed in sex.
And I love it!!
I adore historical romances and this is a story about Sixteenth Century - Sidheach (Sid-hawk) James Lyon Douglas is known as Hawk, a well-known lover to numerous women. 
His sensuality just trickled off the entire Book! "There is not a woman I can not have." He bragged. Twentieth Century - Adrienne de Simone has had enough of good-looking men. She had sworn off beautiful men forever... due to an almost deadly relationship! Then a best friends ( GRIMM) wished upon a star … for a woman who… Independent, sexy, beautiful, man hating 20th century Adrienne found herself the hock in a game between the mortals and the fae! She was plunge back in time to the sixteenth century where she is to be wed to the man who is the very archetype of everything she has sworn off in men.
This, in my opinion is an epic love story and I was sucked right in…. Picture this …
Hawk, every woman’s fantasy… he had NEVER heard the word NO!  From any mortal or fey… alike AND Adrienne de Simone who HATES beautiful man/ i.e. Hawk!!! What a laugh, a story that will bring both joy and tears… 4 stars****

To Tame a Highland Warrior 

(Highlander #2) 

by Karen Marie Moning

Only her love could gentle his savage soul—
He was born to a clan of warriors of supernatural strength, but Gavrael McIllioch abandoned his name and his Highland castle, determined to escape the dark fate of his ancestors. Hiding his identity from the relentless rival clan that hunted him, he called himself Grimm to protect the people he cared for, vowing never to acknowledge his love for ravishing Jillian St. Clair. Yet even from afar he watched over her, and when her father sent an urgent summons, "Come for Jillian," he raced to her side—into a competition to win her hand in marriage. Why had he run from her so many years before? And why return now to see her offered as a prize in her father's manipulative game? Furious, Jillian vowed never to wed. But Grimm was the man she loved, the one who urged her to marry another. He tried to pretend indifference as she tempted him, but he could not deny the fierce desires that compelled him to abduct her from the altar. She was the only woman who could tame the beast that raged within him—even as deadly enemies plotted to destroy them both....

Grimm, Hawks’ best friend…. Is the Front-runner in this book.
I am a huge fan of Karen Marie Moning and each time I find a novel of hers that I haven't read, I lose myself in her books for days at a time. Meaning right after book 1, I started book 2 immediately.
'To Tame a Highland Warrior' is the second chapter in the 'Highlander' series. It all stared when Gavrael McIllioch (aka Grimm) is... every inch a chap.  Got a letter from his past!
Grimm has a major secret that is about to be exposed! He's determined to escape his fate and tries to erase all memories of his past. But…  he can’t forget is Jillian. Jillian St. Clair was an amusing character. She's 21 (old Maid back in her century) and has never been betroth…  As a young woman Jillian never wanted anyone, but ….   The only man who seems to make her livid and scorching all at the same time. I liked the sexual tension amid Jillian and Grimm.
This series is a MUST read. I recommend it to everyone and once you start it you'll more than agree. 5 stars

The Highlander's Touch (Highlander #3)

by Karen Marie Moning
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....

In this installment of KMM highlander series, Circenn Boddie, a half- Fey half human… living in the 14th century is the center of the legend. He is quite the scorching MALE (Seductive, mouth watering… piece of… yeah!). Plus he is the guardian of some fey relics! Some time in the past one of the relic he was protecting got missing or should I say stolen or some shady game fate  (The -itch) is playing! Anywhos… He placed a lost and return to owner spell on the relic, solidifying the return of his relic.  He NEVER bargained for what happened next!!!!
OH!  HE Did get his Relic back, but he also got ….
"Sleep with the angels tonight Lisa. Then come back and sleep with your devil who would burn in hell for one night in your arms." 
Lisa, night shift cleaner who works in the museum!!!  She is blessed with beauty yet, cursed with curiosity… She ended up in a bathtub with a naked Circenn in the 14th century.
Curiosity kills the cat gave this book a whole new meaning…
Great ending to the book!!! If you haven't read the Highlander series, I extremely suggest this series KMM is a remarkable writer!!! 5 stars!!!!

Kiss of the Highlander (Highlander #4)

by Karen Marie Moning
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...
This progression just keeps getting improved and enthralling!
I read KMM Fever series, which is epic by the way and I KNOW is exceptionally good & I highly recommend them. I would recommend that fans whom loved the fever series should also read these highlander series …  in the correct reading order!
Why???  These books are somewhat of a crossover series. The assertion of the Fever series…  the Fey, the Hallows, Druids, the compact and even MAC’s extended family and fairly covered and are addressed in much more detail…
With the history lesson covered!!!! I must say that this was a pleasant book. Gratifying and comical   and it kept me turning pages. I really enjoy the fact that KMM's leading ladies tend to be very intellectual and adept. It's nice to see that in romances. Drustan McKelter… scrumptious, sexy, single male until Gwen! ~~~ With that entire S’s he is also a man with an incorruptible heart!  a nice guy too. He had always ached for a woman to be fond of and understand him… but love??? He’d thought impossible!  I liked parts of Scotland and the historical aspects, druid lore and the physics and science aspect are all mind-boggling and something to ponder. Steamy and sexy… yes!!!!  But the love relationship is vanguard. KMM Is brilliant indeed! 5 stars!!!!

The Dark Highlander (Highlander #5)

by Karen Marie Moning
Journey to a world of ancient magic, breathtaking sensuality, thrilling time-travel.... Journey to the world of The Dark Highlander. Crisscrossing the continents and the centuries, here is a novel as gripping as it is sensual--an electrifying adventure that will leave you breathless....I am Dageus MacKeltar, a man with one good conscience and thirteen bad ones, driven to sate my darkest desires… From his penthouse lair high above Manhattan, Dageus looks out over a glittering city that calls to the darkness within him. A sixteenth-century Scot trapped between worlds, he is fighting a losing battle with the thirteen Druids who possess his soul, dooming him to an eternity of sexual pursuit. When Chloe Zanders, student of antiquities, is drawn into his world, she finds the insatiable alpha male an irresistible lure.Before long, she is caught up in an ancient prophecy that will sweep her back into time to medieval Scotland. Plunged into a world of timeless magic and dark seduction, she will soon face the challenge of a lifetime: fighting thirteen evil spirits for the heart of one irresistible man....
The Dark Highlander begins with Dageus in 20th century Manhattan desperately searching for a way to free himself from the evil spirits taking up dwelling within his body… as punishment for breaking an ancient pact for personal gain. Dageus is the twin brother to Drustan in book 4, the Mckelter twins!!!! Chloe Zanders, an artifacts lover/ heroine, found the greatest artifacts of all…. And also the one whom holds the key to her heart.
I love these books, yet I don’t know which of the twin's stories I like best- Drustan's (Kiss of the Highlander) or Dageus's (The Dark Highlander)- BUT in the end LOVE is always the greatest gift of all and without love LIFE is truly worthless!!!! . In one word? 
Daegus! Dark, Arousing, Erotic, Giving, Unorthodoxed, Sensual....
KMM has done it again… she makes you a book addict and the only way you can get clean is …. Keep on reading until the climax… and even then you beg for more!!! There are no cure for her books!!! 5 stars!!!! and then some.

The Immortal Highlander (Highlander #6)

by Karen Marie Moning
Enter a world of timeless seduction, of ancient intrigue and modern-day passion. Enter the dazzling world of Karen Marie Moning, whose acclaimed Highlander novels have captivated readers, spanning the continents and the centuries, bringing ancient Scotland vividly to life. In a new novel brimming with time-travel adventure and sensual heat, the nationally bestselling author of The Dark Highlander delivers a love story that will hold you in thrall—and a hero you will most certainly never forget.

ethally seductive alpha male of immense strength and dark eroticism, do not look at him. Do not touch him. Do not be tempted. Do not be seduced.
*Sighs dreamily* Adam Black!
The Immortal Highlander was a beyond doubt a breathtaking read. I haven’t chuckled, giggled, snickered, guffawed, have hysterics, and laughed out loud in a book like this for a long time. I recommend this to anyone who hasn’t read it.
“Adam Black is a Tuatha De’Danaan, rouge even among his own kind. His favored glamour is that of an intensely sexual Highland blacksmith with a powerful rippling bod…, golden skin, long black hair, and dark, mesmerizing eyes. Highly intelligent and lethally seductive. Alleged to have nearly broken The Compact on not one, but two occasions. He is, by far, the most dangerous and unpredictable of his race. ”
Dangerous…YES Heart of Gold?... Absolutely!!!! LOVING????? The very best Sacrifice? EPIC!!!!!
All I can say is I loved this book!!! My favorite in the series and WOW KMM is a scribe god!
5 stars!!!

Spell of the Highlander (Highlander #7)

by Karen Marie Moning
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 Marie 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. . . .

Funny, enthralling and I love it!!!! KMM is an amazing writer.
5 stars and Blazing....

I Love KMM's books!

This Highlander Series has been a constant go-to selection for me to re-read, for years. I adore her intriguing characters and can always fall back into the interesting stories of her couples. Great story telling never gets boring! My favorite book would still be The Dark Highlander, but The Immortal Highlander comes in at a close second. What prompted me to re-read this time was the fact my friend borrowed all my Fever Series books, thus I wanted to get caught up with the mischievous beginnings of Darroc, who eventually becomes the dark Lord & Master (I'll stop right there for those not up-to-date in the Fever Series).
