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....

What I thought:

So far, I'd say this is the best in this series... but I am just barely getting around to reading them, so that may change later.

I liked the idea better, that Lisa was pulled through time because of an ill worded curse, instead of meddling fairies. I was really drawn to Lisa, my heart ached for her with what she was suffering with. Watching her mother die and working herself to death. I'm glad she got a chance to love and more importantly, be loved in return (I know, totally stole that from Moulin Rouge, but very fitting).

The story itself was very interesting. Precious hallows that must be guarded, the battle between Scotland and England and the destruction of an ancient order of Templars. This was a very enjoyable read!

I gave it 4 stars!

I haven't read any of Karen's books yet, but I've heard great things about both her highlander and fever series. Will definitely be checking them out though!

I love love love the Fever series! But I would wait until the last book comes out because the last book had a huge cliffhanger! But so far I'm loving KMM's work!
