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. . . . 


What I thought:

I discovered KMM's work not to long ago with the Fever series.  I really like the way she wrote in the books she has so far, so I decided when I wanted to try my first time travel novel that I'd start with hers.  I still love the way she wrote it and I loved the story.

I loved the characters.  While I was hoping for a bit more resistance, at first, from Hawk, I think the story was great.  I felt for Adrienne, going through a horrific relationship realizing at the end she was just being used and was deemed expendable, I was hoping she's find a great happily ever after ending.

I was looking between this and Diane Gabaldon's books, I decided on this one because I wanted the steamy scenes, more of the romance aspect of it.  And I got it.  I may be a late comer when it comes to KMM's books, but I will be quickly catching up!

I gave it 4 stars!
