Beyond the Higthland Mist
Even though somewhat magical I found the female character to be childish and whiney. A bit less of her attitude would have gone a long way. I felt determined to finish it and that's not a feeling I want when reading a book.

Book was great. Reader was outstanding!!
I think about 2 minutes into this audio, I fell in love with the man reading it. OK, well maybe just his voice and his laugh. The book was fast paced, witty, heartwarming, and steamy. I instantly connected with characters and I enjoyed the ride so much that I had to stay up late into the night just to see how everything plays out. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves to read historical-scottish romances or time travel romances. I emphatically recommend this audio to anyone wants to hear a great story, read by an exceptional reader.

IF YOU LIKE TIME TRAVEL YOU WILL LIKE THIS SERIES OF BOOKS BY KAREN MARIE MONING. YOU GET SO INVOLVED THAT YOU ARE RIGHT THERE WITH THEM.
Publishers Weekly, 1999-02-01 Moning offers the promise of a terrific plotline in her debut romance: a troubled young woman, Adrienne is transported from the 20th century to 16th-century Scotland by an evil jester to take revenge on a Scottish laird. The author has the right characters: there's the heroine who doesn't trust beautiful men and a handsome hero cursed to love a woman who will not return his love. Add gypsies and Scottish mysticism, against the backdrop of the stark beauty of the Highlands, and you've got an intriguing story. The lovers endure quite a bit of torment in order to find happiness, a downer that even Moning's doses of humor can't always leaven. Unfortunately, Moning doesn't fully deliver: she too often relies on transparent plot devices, and while her falconry imagery is both poignant and sensual, it will remind readers of Elizabeth Lowell's Untamed.
