When COLIN MACALISTER is cursed by the Faerie Queen and ends up in the bed of a twenty-first-century woman—who also happens to be the most beautiful creature he’s ever laid eyes on—he’s torn between anger and lust. Colin is determined to see Scotland free of English control and must return to the fourteenth century, yet he cannot forget the woman who haunts his dreams and stirs him with scorching desire. ABIGAIL PORTER can’t believe her luck. After making a wish to find her soul mate, she wakes up to find a gorgeous man in her bed!

Colin is shocked to find himself 700 in the future and knows that the Fae are to blame.

My Thoughts 
Highlanders Curse is the last in the series, and I thought that I might be a little lost at times, but for the most part it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would. It was a enjoyable story, even though it didn’t feel like much of a romance story the first half of it, but the second half was way better and well worth waiting for.  I really am starting to just love this series, especially since I have a weakness for time travel, but I also enjoyed the excitement and danger aspect of the story as well. Even though Highlanders Curse was a delightful read, it was far from my favorite book since it didn’t run as smoothly as I expected, especially since I just loved the first book in the series, but I hope the others books are alot better…

My Favorite Quote 
“We are fated to be together. Together from the beginning of time until the end of time,” he whispered before losing himself in her kiss. The sensation of his kiss felt like the world dropped out from under them, and they fell, endlessly locked in each other’s arms. Abby could imagine no better way to go forth into forever. 

About Melissa Mayhue

Melissa Mayhue lives in Colorado, in the shadow of the beautiful Rocky Mountains, with her family, two insanely spoiled dogs, one domineering cat, a turtle with an attitude, and way too many fish in their aquarium. If any one thing is obvious about the books I like best, it's that I love my Happy Ever After endings!!
