Book Description

November 2000 1417712589 978-1417712588
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....

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! Jan. 2 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fun And Light Read! Nov. 1 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was a fun and light read that I throughly enjoyed. Ms. Moning has a flair for combining romance, laughter, and time travel in such a way that you find yourself drawn into the story and get lost in her world.
Lisa is working two jobs in order to take care of her mother that was dying of cancer. She is young and she feels as if she is missing out on life. One night while she was working as a maid in a museum she finds herself drawn to a relic and when she touches it she is sent back in time 700 years in the past to Scotland and to a very wet, and naked Circenn Laird of Brodie.
Circenn made a promise to kill who ever returned with the cursed flask but when he sees a very beautiful women in the most strange pair of legging he's ever scene, he wants to forget about his sworn promise to destroy her. Circenn is has his own problems he is immortal, has a promise he must keep to the templar knights that he is protecting, and he now finds himself drawn to the very lovely Lisa. Could his life get any more complicated? Why yes, yes it can.
Lisa wants to return home to her sich mother, but she is still finding herself drawn to the handsome Circenn. She is feeling emotions that she never had before. Soon they start getting closer but Lisa still can't forget her obligations that rest in the future. Can she have her happily ever after?
This book was so good I was sad to see it come to the end. I laughed, cried, and yes, fell a little bit in love with Circenn. If you love books that pull you into the story and location then you will love this one!

4.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing, Made me Smile! Oct. 31 2002
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
A very fun and fast read. The book was adorable, beautiful characters and very humerious. Lisa works her self to the bone trying to provide for herself and her mother who is dying of cancer. She is always getting herself in messes and is a crack up. She works two jobs, one in a museum at night cleaning offices. She discovers some old artifacts and being curious as a cat she snoops. She picks up a flask and is immediately transported back in time. Circenn the hunk of the book, has cast a spell or curse on the flask to whoever touches it will be immediately sent to him. I don't want to go into any more details, but if you like paranormal, time travelling books you'll love this one. I fell in love with both of the characters. Lisa was so real, constantly getting herself into trouble, Ms. Moning wrote this character so well I could picture every move she made. Circenn was a dream, a bit unbeleavable, but so what, we can dream can't we? He was wonderful! There is even a life lesson to the book which you find out at the end. It was a great fun story. A little silly but hey, thats what these time travel books are all about. This was a great escape from the everyday romances.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! Dec 15 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
First of all, you cannot compare ANY books to the Diana Gabaldon series. So, when reading this book, you have to treat it as if you would any other type of book. You wouldn't compare any other authors to Stephen King or Dean Koontz, so you can't compare this book to the Oulander series either.
With that said, this book tells a great story. There's time travel, war, & romance. The story doesn't elaborate on war much at all, just basically that there is one and that's about the gist of it. But the romance that builds between the charaters and the way the author describes them is awesome! I actually laughed out loud when I read parts of this book and I did get tears in my eyes during one part. (But I won't give any of it away) You will fall in love with Circenn, and the passion he has for Lisa.
The story begins when Lisa goes back in time, she meets Circenn. Her first meeting with him and he is naked. She can't believe how barbaric & sexy he is at the same time. Right from the start you have compassion for Circenn. You also get annoyed at Lisa for being the typical mouthy female. (Come on ladies, you know what I mean!) As the story goes on you warm up to Lisa. She doesn't do, try, or say anything that you wouldn't do in today's society. Which is all she knows no matter what century she is in. You begin to feel both of their pain, and both of their passions. The end of the story takes you by suprise. I was not expecting an ending like that, but it was a pleasent ending none the less.
I recomend this book to anyone who enjoys time travel/romance stories. You just CANNOT compare it to the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. But Karen Marie Moning does deserve an applaud for this story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Loved this book! Dec 10 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
When I first got this book I didn't realize it was a part of a series, when I did I put it up until I could read the other books. I'm glad i did. It made much more sense to me when I knew who Adam was and What a Berserker was. Even though the first two books take place after this one I could tie them in very well. This is a time travel book. I love time travel books. I wish that there had been more discription of Lisa's(the heroine) transition into 14th century life. Plus when Circenn(the hero) goes forward in time his transition. The love scenes in this are great even before they actually happen. The two have fantasies about each other which are quite steamy. I like the fact that the hero hasn't been with a lot of women. It makes him seem more real. I liked the secondary characters of Galen and Duncan who I have a suspision are related to Hawk in Karen's first book. I would dearly love to read books about them finding love. Especially Duncan who has "had" almost every willing maid he can find until he seems to meet his match in a mysterious woman named Elizabeth MacBreide. She seems like a match for him. This is a good book and I would recommend it to anyone who likes tender but fierce warrior hero's and mischevious fairies.

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. Read more
