From his penthouse lair high above Manhattan, Dageus looks out over a glittering city that calls to the darkness within him. A sixteenth-century Scot trapped between worlds, he is fighting a losing battle with the thirteen Druids who possess his soul, dooming him to an eternity of sexual pursuit. When Chloe Zanders, student of antiquities, is drawn into his world, she finds the insatiable alpha male an irresistible lure.Before long, she is caught up in an ancient prophecy that will sweep her back into time to medieval Scotland. Plunged into a world of timeless magic and dark seduction, she will soon face the challenge of a lifetime: fighting thirteen evil spirits for the heart of one irresistible man….

It’s so nice to see more of the Mackeltar brothers. Dageus really gives his brother a run for his money with the dangerous, dark quality he has going on in this book. It’s pretty difficult to say which I prefer. Of course, I’d take them both. 😉

This was yet another great installement of Moning’s Highlander series. I’m getting close to the end of it, which makes me sad. Still, there’s no shortage of romance books about the Highlands. I suppose if I miss it too much I can try out a different author. Dageus stole my heart. What he did for his brother was just amazing, so is the strength he has to keep the spirits inside him at bay. I also liked Chloe, though maybe not quite as much as Gwen. She was just geeky enough to win me over.

Moning doesn’t disappoint. The plot and characters are still very engaging. We get to see our favorite mischievous fairy again. Adam Black is back, pleading with his Queen for the sake of a few humans. I took a peak at what the next book is about, and I’m so excited that he will be the focus! There’s plenty of time travel, magic, and some creepy cult out to make sure Dageus goes dark. It’s easily a thrilling story, but it also has all those delicious scenes between Chloe and Dageus that we’re really looking forward to. Still, m favorite remains Kiss of the Highlander.

This book contains profanity, violence, and detailed sexual content. 18 and up, please!
