THE HIGHLANDER’S TOUCH: KAREN MARIE MONING REVIEW

Hello lovelies! I’m so excited to be bringing you a new review for the day. Today we’re going to be discussing the third book in the Highlander series. So far I’ve reviewed the first two (here’s one, and the other) and I’ve absolutely adored this series! Without further ado, let’s get into the discussion.

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 forsworn 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…

RATING: 4/5 STARS

Like all of the previous books in this series, we meet two new characters as they navigate being thrown at each other. In this story, Lisa is thrown back in time and ends up landing right into Circenn’s lap. Their initial meeting definitely starts them off on a not so great foot, so they have to work extra hard to mend what had been injured.

As a character, I liked Lisa. She was independent and strong but she also had a softer side. The last few years of her life prior to being dragged back into time were really tragic and she’s suffered through a lot of hurt, which was why she was so keen to get back home. Lisa was also really sarcastic and sassy, which is one of my favorite things ever. Circenn was great as well. He complimented Lisa in every way and he was really great for her, helping her heal and giving her a chance when he didn’t think he could. They had a fantastic dynamic, and Moning can sure write fantastic romances and couples.

The dialogue between the characters was super great, and it was one of my favorite parts of the story. Along with the great dialogue, the story flowed well, and it drew me in from the first page to the last. In this story, all of the time travel and Fae aspects tied in great with the other books, and it wove into the story beautifully.

All in all, I thought this book was absolutely great. The characters made me super happy, and this book had me swooning and head over heels from their first meeting. If you’re a fan of addictive romance novels with hottie Scottish highlanders, then this series is definitely for you. I’ve always loved romance novels, but this series has left me so thrilled and they are more addictive than candy. If you’d read this one I’d love to hear your thoughts. Also, I’m always looking for new swoony books, so please give me some suggestions that make you happy!

Love,

Taylor
