I fully enjoyed this time travel romance, that takes you back to the medieval Scotland, and written by one of my favorite romance authors. The more that I read from Karen Marie Moning, the more I get excited about reading her other books, since the ones that I have read so far have been outstanding, as this one was as well. Adrienne, has been hurt, but when she is thrown back in time, she has to face a future and a life with a man that she both fears and desires. The Hawk is definitely an Alpha rake, a seducer of women, no matter their reservations. However when she becomes married to him, he knows that she is unlike any other woman he has met and he knows that there is something peculiar about it, and he wants to find out what that is. Its a enchanting love story that brings two souls together with a little twist that will keep you on the edge.
