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. . . .
I used to run for the hills every time I hear the word historical. I don’t know why but I believe I tried reading a historical book in my dreams once and it probably slapped me. I was terrified of reading something out of my comfort zone. Lately, I’ve been more adventurous. Ha! It’s funny how I consider reading a historical book an adventure. No jumping out an airplane free falling for this girl. That’s not risky enough for me. Give me a good book and it’ll give me the thrill of a lifetime. You guys probably can relate to this, right? Well, this book was a trip and I enjoyed every single minute of it.
I loved this book from page one. Adrienne was a fantastic character. I loved that she didn’t lose her mind once she found herself in a strange place surrounded by strangers. She adapted to her surroundings beautifully and that made for an amazing read. Also, Hawk was the perfect hero. He was a little intense for my taste, but I didn’t mind it that much. The chemistry between these too was amazing. I enjoyed how they were open to the impossible like the strangeness of time travel and magic.
There was one character, though, that annoyed me a bit. Adam was like a little child that wanted something that he couldn’t have. I just wanted him gone. From what I've heard he’s in the other books of the series. Let’s hope he’s not as annoying in the other books as he is in this one. I loved the secondary characters so much. Hawk’s mom was the best. And the hot best friend (I don’t remember his name) I wanted to slap at some point in the book but then he redeemed himself. Sigh, this book, brought many emotions out of me. I like when books do that to me.
Beyond the Highland Mist is one of those books you want everyone to read, I even almost told my weird neighbor about it, but he would probably think I’m a weirdo and we don’t want that. The plot, the romance, the characters all of that made this book a win. I hope you guys give a try!
