The Dark Highlander
Author: Karen Marie Moning
Series: Highlander #5
Published by Dell
Released: October 1, 2002
Genres: Historical Romance
Chloe, a self-proclaimed nerd and lover of antiques finds herself the victim of that old saying, “Curiosity killed the cat.” When sent to Mr. MacKeltar’s New York apartment to drop off a parcel, Chloe lets her curiosity get the best of her and she gets caught red-handed when Daegus comes home, finding a woman searching beneath his bed. Her punishment doesn’t seem all that terrible though, because the gorgeous hunk of manflesh ties her to his bed and feeds her delicious meals.
Chloe was an easy heroine to like. I loved her passion for her work. Anything old with a history sparked something inside of her. She’s someone who would rather spend time researching than anything else. She had many endearing qualities and characteristics. Her nervous hiccups, that stubborn lift of her chin, and the endless love she had for Daegus despite her not knowing everything about the mysterious Scot. She takes many leaps of faith, trusting Daegus only when she’s known him for such a short period of time.
Speaking of time, the time-travel in this one is perfect. Again. I wish Moning continued with this series. While she has made her name with her Fever series, she is a master at meshing two hearts together into one.
And there’s Daegus who, simply put, is sex. I swooned so much through this book, I grew faint. At least give me some time to recover between bated breaths.
“I am going to love you now, slow and sweet, but when you come, I’m going to fuck you the way I need to. The way I’ve been dreaming about since the moment I saw you.”
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, to New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and fashion or dreaming about boys and beaches. My love for all things David Gandy is well documented on the Internet and we’ll be getting married shortly. I’ll be sure to send you an invite to the wedding! ;P Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
