I started reading one of Karen Marie Moning‘s first books and didn’t make it past Chapter 3. I don’t know, maybe I was actually sleeping at the time because as I look back, I can’t imagine what else would have prevented me from devouring that book and every one that came after. Which is exactly what I did after reading The Dark Highlander. Those McKeltar brothers….DAYUM!!!! I loved that book so much, I still think about the characters all these years later. Ms. Moning has delved into the realm of Urban Fantasy and doesn’t write Highland Romance anymore — a sad, sad realization for those of us who LOVE those Highlanders. If you haven’t discovered her Irish Fairies, you’ll want to start with this one, The Dark Highlander.
