Review: "Beyond the Highland Mist" by Karen Marie Moning

From Goodreads:   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....

My Thoughts:  This book felt like an Outlander wannabe.  There is time travel and a modern day woman is forced to marry a Highland Scot and subsequently falls in love with him but that is where the similarities end.  The story line is okay and I did come to like the characters but then there was the addition of the fae and the fairy King and Queen and it just got kind of weird.  I am a sucker for romance stories so I think that is what kept me reading but this book is a little more 'cheap paperback romance' than I would normally read.  There are several more books in the series but I am not sure whether or not I would read them.  If you are interested in reading a Karen Marie Moning book, I would recommend picking up the Fever series first.  2 stars.

  1. I have been thinking about reading this book for a while. After reading your review I think I will wait for a while longer. Doesn't sound like a must read. Thanks for the review.
