Beyond the Highland Mist (The Highlander Series, Book 1)

Beyond the Highland Mist (The Highlander Series, Book 1) - Karen Marie Moning There's about 6 months left to wait until the next installment of the Fever series comes out. So, I thought to myself, why not read Karen Moning's Highlander series. I had heard that the first book was not that great and that I could just skip to the third book. I am so glad that I didn't because I had a lot of fun reading Beyond the Highland Mist.Beyond the Highland Mist has all the elements of a fun summer read:(1) The hero is a "perfect" man. His "endowments" are legendary and well described, which adds a little cheesy humour. Of course, said hero has a nice Scottish brogue, which adds even more sexiness.(2) The heroine is a virgin (of course!). She continuously fights off the advancements of our hero, even though she is attracted to him. She does come from another time, so that is cool.(3) The setting is Scotland in the 1500's. Misty, green, clean air....and all the men are well muscled (no cars, no computers, no electronics, so that seems right).(4) Add a few steamy hot love scenes.....(5) And a little fairy mayhem, just to cause a little mischief.And there you have it. A great way to pass a nice summer day, sitting outside by the pool, a cool drink in hand, and a fun summer read.I will definitely be looking for the next book in the series.
