Product Description

From the Inside Flap

He would sell his warrior soul to possess her. . . .
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 Moning with Beyond the Highland Mist brings a romance novel back to Romance. I loved this book. The kind of novel romance readers thrive on. A book to curl up with and takes you away from the everyday. The characters were well developed, the struggle between the hero and heroine compelling and the added touch of fantasy makes Beyond the Highland Mist a story you can dream on. I found BTHM witty, funny and touching. Hawk is an example of the true alpha-male, so handsome, strong and masculine in every way, but with a past that makes him vulnerable. Adrienne is not only beautiful but strong and independent. Badly hurt in the present she finds it hard to trust in the past. The catalyst for conflict is an amazing character called Adam Black, beautiful but sinister. This book has it all. Fantasy, fun and drama. Karen Moning has created with words a mind painting of romance of old. This is her first book and I for one am eagerly looking forward to her next book. I read approximately 300 romances a year and this one is a keeper.

Aoibheal, Queen of the Fae, told her court about "the Hawk". She told of how he could win any woman's heart and soul. She even made some believe Hawk had stolen her favor, as well. The King of the Fae, as well as "the Fool" Adam, decided upon revenge. Adam traveled through time until 1997. It was there he found a perfect woman who hated beautiful men, for very good reason.
Adrienne de Simone was whisked through time to the sixteenth century and forced to wed a man known as Hawk. She wanted nothing to do with such a good looking man. Beautiful men mean trouble and pain. Hawk could not believe she would have nothing to do with him. Worse yet, a smithy suddenly appeared in town, named Adam Black and was determined to woo her away from him! Adrienne, wanting nothing to do with either of them, was made into a pawn of which only Aoibheal, who ruled over all, could save.
***WOW! I loved this book. It is definately "a keeper"! Here is one that will never see the inside of a used book store. Powerful, romantic, and leaves you believing in Fairies.***

This book had all the right elements to catch my attention; fantasy, history, sexual tension, a really hunky hero, a hunky villan and a heroine who doesn't take any guff. I laughed in some places, cried in others and was generally sorry to see the story end. There were some historical inconsistancies, but I could overlook them by this first time author. I will definately be putting this on my keeper shelf for a rainy day re-read. Try it, you won't be sorry. I await Ms. Monings' next book to see if it lives up to her promise.

(Edited a few days later to add - I didn't bother with books 2 & 3, but I did pick up book 4 and WOW - Book 4, Kiss of the Highlander is 100 times better than this one. I highly recommend continuing with the series - even for Fever fans, as things do get much more interesting!)

This was written around 1997, and it shows. Paranormal Romance has tightened in that time, matured, and turned into a clever, witty, sexy genre. This book shows its age. It's fluffy fun, but dull. Even the writing is stilted (The author's writing style in the Fever Series is in a different league to this!) However, I've been told the Highlander series gets much better after book 3. I adore KMM and will likely try book 4, because I know this author can, and does, write fantastic books.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Handsome as sin and the greatest of lovers, Hawk is not only sought after by almost every woman in 1513 Scotland, but is the ideal pawn in a gambit played out by the fairie queen and her court. The other pawn, 20th century Adrienne de Simone, has had her problems with men and hopes that she is never taken in by their sweet words again. When Hawk's friend, Grimm, wishes that Hawk would find a woman of wit, intelligence and beauty who would spurn him, Adrienne finds herself swept through time in order to marry Hawk. Though stunned by her situation, she complies, agreeing to masquerade as Mad Janet, the bride-to-be. When she meets her husband, Adrienne is dazed by his beauty, making her resist him. Her rebuffs make Hawk try harder, and when the smithy, Adam Black, sets out to seduce Adrienne, sparks fly and the game shifts into a higher dimension. Add to this a jealous woman, Hawk's ex-lover, Adrienne's resolve, and a group of matchmakers, and you have havoc in the Highlands. This highly original time-travel romance combines the wonders of the paranormal and the mischievous world of the fairies to create a splendid, sensual, hard-to-put-down romance. You'll delight in the biting repartee and explosive sexual tension between Adrienne and Hawk, the conniving Adam, and the magical aura that surrounds the entire story. Karen Marie Moning is destined to make her mark on the genre.

It has been a long time since I have read a book that I could not put down. The combination of power, romance, and satire in the story line created a perfect mix. I anticipated the time I would have to continue reading and looked forward to being on a plane where I could read uninterrupted for hours. I thought about Hawk and Adrienne for days after I finished reading.
I can not wait for Karen Moning's next book to be released!
