About the Story:
Perfect for fans of the Highlander novels of Karen Marie Moning and Janet Chapman, Southern sass meets Highland heat in Maeve Greyson’s scintillating Highland Hearts romance.
With bedroom eyes and racetrack curves, Kenna Sinclair seems like just another pretty Kentucky girl. But she can also read minds, erase memories, and jump through time—a skill set that comes in handy when her matchmaking granny sends her back to thirteenth-century Scotland on the pretext of visiting her older sister. When she encounters the clan’s womanizing man-at-arms, Kenna instantly knows the gorgeous Highlander has only one thing on his mind. She vows to steer clear of him, but after a single electrifying touch, she finds that playing hard to get won’t be quite so easy. . . .
Bewitched by the first lass who could ever resist him, Colum Garrison will do anything to prove his devotion, even ask for Kenna’s hand in marriage—and swear off his chosen form of recreation until their wedding night. It’s a burden for a man of his thunderous appetite, but the sinful temptation is not his alone: Colum’s fetching bride-to-be is practically trembling with anticipation for a moment that can’t come soon enough. When she’s willing, Colum will be ready and waiting—with a love that lasts a lifetime.
My Thoughts: Thoroughly engaging where the present meets the past in this action-packed character-driven three-book series.
Colum Garrison, Clan MacKenna’s man-at-arms knew he was below the station of his chief’s wife’s sister. How could he accept her charms and still be honorable? Poor Colum had a lot to learn about himself and Kenna in this page-turner.
Colum (13th Century character) is a drop dead gorgeous hunk of a man whom Kenna Sinclair (21st Century character) absolutely knew to be the one, but only after his touch which exhilarated her and disgusted her at the same time for she was able to read minds.
Kenna Sinclair is a very opinionated woman, virginal twenty-three year old. Something almost unheard of in the 21st century. However, in the 13th century Colum changed her mind about its importance. He, on the other hand, put up every block known to man to dissuade himself from taking her.
Why does a guy have to feel he needs to have more, be more, to feel he can offer for a woman he loves and she loves him? By Colum’s actions and stubbornness he created quite a mess. And Kenna, with her love to Colum, only worsened the situation.
Ms. Greyson, a new-to-me author, sure knows how to capture and hold the reader’s attention. Great, well-developed characters—all lovable in their way, even the villain! I’ll be reading book one of the series just so I don’t miss any of this action-packed series.
The epilogue has me revved to read the third in the series, My Tempting Highlander. It will be released February 23, 2016. If you are a lover of Highland suspenseful romance, time travel, and paranormal, don’t miss this series. This is a truly fun read.
About the Author: (courtesy of her website) When I’m not at my full-time job at the steel mill, I’m tapping away on my laptop, recording my daydreams of sexy Highlanders and the headstrong women who drive them crazy.
I also think of myself as a “watcher”. I live in the middle of a five acre wood in Kentucky, sharing the clearing where our house sits with deer, raccoons, possums, wild turkeys and even a groundhog. Did you know they’re also called whistle pigs? I discovered why when Jasper startled Hamish McGroundhog. Hamish whistled the alarm and startled everybody.
My sweet friend Jasper has crossed over the Rainbow Bridge but I know in my heart he still watches over me. He’s my four-legged guardian angel.
I also enjoy people-watching—you know, kind of floating along the edge of a crowd and observing how folks go about their day. All this watching feeds into my stories so take care, you never know when a writer might be watching.
