An alluring Laird. He was known throughout the kingdom as Hawk, legendary predator of the battlefield and the 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 irresistle 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......

enjoyed this book.. however I totally did not like the fever book I returned to library unread..
I have enjoyed all Highlander books of Karen Moning that I have read

I laughed-out-loud at the arrogant Scottish Lord watching his new wife almost wooed-away in front of him before he'd even exchanged a word with her. I really enjoyed the book, have re-read it about 3-4 times, it gets better with each re-read. It's a super-light-read by the pool, or a really excellent mood-booster & diversion from life's rough times. I consider these to be a super-light prelude to Moning's swoon-worthy, darker, more serious Fever series. This book is very dryly, slyly humorous, definitely a "Ladies Fantasy", very romantic, Chemical-free mood uplifter. The type of sly and saucy tale your friends might tag-team draft-up while out at "Magic Mike's Male Stripclub" celebrating a bachelorette/divorce/new-job/layoff. FINALLY, a story where the woman is empowered to orchestrate and enjoy GREAT SEX, savor every detail--and LIVE afterwards!! (No roofie or shame-&-fear-based fade-to-blacks!!) This is a great female answer to the male-oriented fantasy/sci-fi /action-adventure of the 1950-90's where the women are usually clones, slaves, sex-workers, the ladies don't even get mediocre sex then they are killed and their flesh and skin re-used or turned into food. Other books I've liked: Moning's Fever series, Juliet Dark's Fairwick series, Nicole Peeler's Jane True, Laurell K. Hamilton's Meredith Gentry and Anita Blake series, Cheryl Sterling's "What do You Say to a Naked Elf".

This was a DNF on multiple occasions.

Keep your expectations low, people. At least that way you might find it humorous at times (I didn't).

If you read this book expecting some sense, you'll be disappointed. This is straight up trash. I don't know where to begin it's so bad.

Opening Paragraphs of book so full of hyperbole that I contemplated returning book to eLibrary - It was AWFUL. I made it through the prologue slightly unamused - by the second paragraph of page one of chapter one (where it mentioned his manhood, the likes of which no other man possessed...)- I was done. I really tried to finish the book - but just couldn't.

If you are looking for a book with zero plot progression, poor character development and sex scenes pulled from the pages of penthouse - then this is the book for you.

Adrienne de Simone is tumbled out of modern-day Seattle into Scotland year 1513. She soon finds herself married to Hawk, the Laird of Dalkeith.

Hawk has never met a woman who could say "no" and is thrown through a loop with Adrienne. For her part, Adrienne's had her heart broken by a handsome man and vows never to trust any good looking male again.

As the two begin to fall-in-love neither realizes this is all a game for the fairies. And like any game, once it's no longer fun it has to end.

Adrienne and Hawk were a fun couple to watch battle wits. I thought the story was good up until they admitted their love for each other. They held out for so long that when it's finally out in the open they then have to battle the big evil.

To anyone that enjoys time-travel romance or Scottish heroes I would definitely recommend checking out this book or any other by Karen Marie Moning.
