To Tame a Highland Warrior by Karen Marie Moning
"He was born to a clan of warriors of supernatural strength, but Gavrael McIllioch abandoned his name and his Highland castle, determined to escape the dark fate of his ancestors. Hiding his identity from the relentless rival clan that hunted him, he called himself Grimm to protect the people he cared for, vowing never to acknowledge his love for ravishing Jillian St. Clair. Yet even from afar he watched over her, and when her father sent an urgent summons, "Come for Jillian," he raced to her side -- into a competition to win her hand in marriage." (from the publisher)
This will be a super quick write up! I've had Karen Moning's paranormal/highland romance series in my TBR pile since last summer, and I'm finally making time to work through them all. I wasn't terribly impressed with the first two (I read Beyond the Highland Mist last summer on a beach trip) but I've heard good things about the series as a whole so I'm interested in continuing through the books, knowing some will be hits and a few may be misses. The books contain elements that I enjoy such as time travel, myths, legends, magic, supernatural powers, and, of course, charismatic alpha heroes and beautiful heroines. Easy, breezy, pure escape reading...the kind of book I reach for when I head outside by the pool. (Plus I love the covers ;) On to #3, The Highlander's Touch.
