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 16th-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.

"Phil Gigante's handling of the prose in Moning's clever paranormal romance is smooth and engaging, but it is his character voicings that truly make this recording one to remember." (AudioFile)
If all you ask of a novel is adjectives for physical attributes and explicit sex, this one is for you. The dialog is very minimal and I found myself wishing the author would get on with the story instead of redundantly emphasizing the beauty of the characters.
I really had issues getting through this book. It was very predictable. Try reading Brenda Joyce's books instead, you won't be disapointed... gotta love the time travel.
This is my 1st KMM book. I guess I'm a reader who needs a little more character development, because I struggled to feel like I knew the two protagonists in this story at all. They just felt a little too shallow for me to really get behind and cheer for them. I understand other reviewers concerns about the narrator, too. Although I'm usually able to get past so-so narrations, this guy really struggled to keep his southern belle and celtic lassie voices separate, not to mention his unconvincing attempt to keep his Scots sounding Scottish (or does it count if it's at least somewhere in the British Isles?). However, I do think there might be potential for improvement, particularly as this series develops, so that's why I gave it two stars instead of one.
It's as if Nora Roberts and Diana Galbaldon collaborated on this book. Had I not read the Outlander series I would have been far more entertained by this story. Anytime the "fairies" spoke in the background it was difficult to understand what they were saying. Just too similar to Outlander to sit well with me.
