There’s something to be said about a book that takes you off to faraway lands, lands where the men are breathtakingly beautiful and oh, so sexy. Spell of the Highlander is one such book. As I was reading, I felt myself getting lost in this world. Cian has been imprisoned for 1,133 years in the Dark Mirror. The mirror is delivered to Chicago where Jessica St-James, an archaeology student accepts the delivery on behalf of her professor. From that point on, Jessica and Cian were hunted by Lucan Trevayne. They end up in Scotland, where they run into Dageus MacKeltar. Spell of the Highlander is the seventh book in the Karen Moning’s Highlander series. It is easily the best book of the series for many reasons. First of all, it is a love story, complete with exquisite sexual tension and very passionate love scenes. It is a story of finding your true soul mate, someone that is on this earth especially for you.The characters are well developed. A lot of thought went into our hero, Cian MacKeltar: “six and a half feet of smoldering, insatiable alpha male. A towering, muscle ripped, darkly beautiful man, dripping with power.” What’s there not to like? Our heroine, Jessica St. James is also likeable, smart, and resourceful and a perfect match to her highlander. Jessica is also quite spunky, knocking out an airline employee to get to her man. The plot was intense, with our hero and heroine staying a step ahead of the bad guys. I also liked that the MacKeltar twins and their wives also got an appearance in this book. I really enjoyed how Cian saw the 21st century. His perceptions and values added some comical relief. For those of you that have read the Fever series, there is some good foreshadowing and background to that series.If you are waiting for Shadowfever, the Highlander series is a lot of fun to read. There’s always a big, hunky, drop-dead gorgeous Highlander, a wee lass, some travel or time travel, and a little Druid magic. Enjoy!
