Beyond the Highland Mist by Karen Marie Moning (1999)

  1. 20
    Outlander by Diana Gabaldon (Anonymous user)
  2. 10
    The Bride by Julie Garwood (Vonini)
    Vonini: Both books are well written romances with hot Highland lairds and unwilling love interests. Garwood books tend to have a little less angst and a little more humor

Don't know what I was thinking. ( )
  sydsavvy | Apr 8, 2016 |
I gave this book 4 stars instead of 5 mainly because it did take me a bit to really get into the book. Once I got there though, I was hooked. I love Scottish romance first of all. I love the kilts, I love the brogue, and those Scots are oh so passionate! Both main characters in this book had such a sad and scary past that it's obvious to the reader they are meant for each other. Of course those pesky fae had to go muck things up. I love anything with Fairies too, so that boded well for this book. I also loved the little hint of a side romance going on, I thought it was very cute. I am hoping for a possibility of seeing more of Grimm in future books. ( )

I liked it. Adrienne and Hawk are no Jamie and Claire - but I can't compare other series to Outlander. ( )

The first half of this book drove me bonkers, but despite a few problems, the second half sold me on the series. The tension and angst in the last few chapters were fantastic and the reason I gave the book an additional star. Hawk is the typical arrogant, medieval-macho-alpha-male, living to bed the next woman. Adrienne is getting over her 21st century boyfriend and angry with "beautiful men" in general when she is yanked out of her current time. She's forced to marry The Hawk which is done by proxy, and her bad attitude kicks into overdrive. Bickering and childish behavior commences from both sides and I was ready to throw my Nook. But then...

The author did a great job of changing my opinion of Hawk. It seemed an abrupt turn-around until she peeled back the layers of his character and revealed the smexy, devoted husband who longed for children and family. I liked Adrienne at first, but not as much as Hawk. Some of the things she said and did to him kept me from enjoying the relationship until the last ten chapters. Once there, the story took off and I flipped through the pages wondering how Hawk and Adrienne could possibly prevail. The Fae fool was a great villain. His scheming and bad behavior kept the plot moving when it would drag. The time travel element and other Fae characters gave it just enough paranormal twist without being overbearing.

This was my first book by Ms. Moning. I'll continue the series. ( )

Epigraph
"You spotted snakes with double tongue
Thorny hedgehogs be not seen;
Newts and blind worms, do no wrong
Come not near our fairy queen."
Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream
Dedication
First words
The fragrance of jasmine and sandalwood drifted through the rowan trees.
Quotations
And as she stepped into the archway, Grimm melted out of the shadows. She stopped, relieved. Try that again, she told herself. Write that scene one more time, Adrienne de Simone. It reads: she stopped, furious at being denied escape.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0440234808, Mass Market Paperback)

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. . . .
