I was getting bored with the romance genre until I ordered this book. I was riveted from page one. I'm not going to go into plot because so many reviewers did a splendid job of that. All I can say is that Ms. Moning created a delicious brew of time travel and fantasy, faeries and wonderous Scottish lure. In between all of that were two phenomenal leading characters with sparks and sexual tension that left me sighing...and turning page after page until the wee hours. I can almost believe in faeries!

I bought this book based on the large number of excellent reviews. I must admit, it did not quite live up to my expectations. If you buy this expecting a Gabaldon-like story, then this book will definitely disappoint, because it in no way comes close to the rich culture, history, and experience of her books. On the other hand, if you buy this book looking for a sensual romance, you will again be disappointed. Or, to put it better, you will be disappointed until over midway through, when the romance finally picks up some. It definitely offers a more whimsical approach to romance, but I find the books of Teresa Medeiros to be a more amusing magical story, and those from Constance O'Day Flannery to be a more romantic time-travel story. I suppose my problem with this book is that it failed to deliver a real punch in any way. I would recommend it as a decent read, though, personally, I didn't get into the book at all until halfway through, where it became lightly enjoyable.

After reading the one star ratings for this book, I thought it necessary to put it into perspective for prospective readers.

I'm a BIG fan of romance novels. From devouring Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series, I moved on to Sara Donati's Into the Wilderness series and hopped from one book to another of light historical romance novels trying to satisfy my craving for "the chase", adventure, love stories and happy endings in another era. Then I discovered Karen Marie Moning. At first I found the titles and the writing style cheesy but I gave it a shot. Wasn't long til I didn't give a snit about that I just wanted to know what was going to happen next!

These books do not drag on. That's one of its strengths.

If you are looking for something up to the writing standards of our dear Diana Gabaldon and will accept no less, then this is not the series for you. If however, you are happy to indulge in light literature - no big words and flowery descriptions now - just a lovable heroine we can all relate to on some level and the requisite hunky highlander we'd all end up falling for. I dare you not to. The series is a quick, easy read, supplies happy endings in surprising ways and is a welcome distraction. I suggest it as an in between "big book" reads.

Now you've been warned.

Karen Marie Moning is a great author and was trying something new that didn't quite work in this novel. The hero and the heroine have little basis to have fallen in love. They speak infrequently, know nothing about each other (not even values) and yet all at once it's 'there' and soul-permeating. The hero doesn't evolve so much as 'forget' his motivations (bad one moment, magnanimous the next, manipulative, then kind, then determined, and THEN determined for something else altogether in the end!)

**spoilers**
The ending is one of the most atrocious fairy-wand endings I have EVER read. Time is travelled, all the woman's tragic experiences reversed, the dead are raised, the hero suddenly understands space and time and snaps into a fairy-godmother that we don't recognize, and everything is put to sitcom-right. I thought we were slightly more mature than that. I like a happy ending, but it's really... NAUSEATING. Overcoming the pain together(not making it all go away via a 900 yr jaunt into a wtf do-over) is what makes a story beautiful. You can't MULLIGAN life!

When there are no rules in a fantasy-world, there is nothing of value.

The storyline with the bad Templar had potential, but was killed about 3 minutes in. Random historical detail and content, and really, tampons causing the 'black moment'? That was a little strange. Also, what was the story with the redhead at the celebration? Nothing became of it, and it was random filler.

Adam Black's character/power/malaise was severely disrespected in this story. He was nothing more than a plot device, unrecognizable by the end. If you can skip this one, read To Tame a Highland Warrior instead. Monings' finest so far as I have read.

Circenn and Lisa. Well, after reading this one, you start getting the feeling like you're missing out on something greater than this day and age. I mean The Bruce at Bannockburn, Castle Brodie and the Templars? Holy moly. One minute you think you know where the story's going and then you don't anymore and you wonder at the many different endings Moning could have played with. This book made me dream but it also made me reflect on the essence of life itself.
