The Highlanders' Touch: Review

Highlander's Touch
(Highlander Series #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....

Favorite Line(s): " Good night Lisa, sleep with the angels. Then come back to earth and sleep with your devil who would burn in hell for one night in your arms."

My Review: The Highlander's Touch needed more closure at the end. Even if the closure came in the form of a one page epilogue. I am giving this book a solid stars, so far not my favorite in the series, but it doesn't make me not want to continue reading the series, because the book was still steamy, and Karen Marie Moning was still able to make this reader connect and feel for the two characters. Also major points for making Lisa a strong woman who spoke her mind and stood on her own two feet!

I really liked all of Moning's Highlander series. But you're right about the ending in this one. I think Moning does that with her series novels, so she can write another book in the series and make mo money! hee-hee. It's a little annoying and I have to say I stopped reading her Fever series because of it. I might pick it up again though, if she finishes the series one day :)

I like highlander books, but don't read anything paranormal or with stories about immortals/magic, so this one is probably not for me. :)

I like to have closure at the end of a book too, so I can completely relate to that.

Please disregard my previous comment. My husband was talking to me while I was reading the review and I got distracted. I just went back and re-read it and see that it is not a paranormal/immortality book, but I time travel love story about the Scottish highlands, and yes that does appeal.
