"Twelfth Knight’s Bride" by E. Elizabeth Watson

Author's Book Description : Lady Aileana Grant just wants to help her starving clan at Christmastide. So she pilfers some vegetables from the bastard Laird James MacDonald--the Devil, they call him. When the Devil shows up and demands marriage as recompense for the thievery, Aileana can’t believe it when her brother agrees. Even if she’s able to negotiate a severance on Twelfth Night, that’s still two weeks to put up with the laird in enemy territory. She’s counting down the days, even if James isn’t quite the disgusting cretin she’d imagined.

James needs to marry an enemy bride in order to inherit his fortune. Cursed restrictions. He’d been unable to look away from Aileana’s untamed beauty ever since she squared off with him. He might as well handfast with the infernal lass. He’d get his money and perhaps some peace among the clans. He has a fortnight to win the heart of the lady with the voice of an angel despite her sharp tongue.

Twelfth Night is merry and bright as Aileana and James realize a true connection between them. But when Aileana discovers the reason the Devil forced her into marriage, how can she ever believe he truly wants her?

I don’t know but I think I maybe fallin’ for you. Dropping so quickly, maybe I should keep this to myself, waiting ’til I know you better.

Format: Hardcover | Pages: 267 | Release Date: August 2004 | Publisher: Delacorte Press

"The Immortal Highlander" [The Highlander Series, Book 6] by Karen Marie Moning -- In this novel Ms. Moning took Adam Black from villain Book 1 (and maybe a few others in this series) and made him the hero! Basically Adam had been a considerable grievance to the Faery Queen in fighting against the High Council and her to save a mortals life, and because of that she punished him by taking his powers away, making him human, and making him invisible to all the mortals around him for an unknown period of time.

After a couple of months later at an impasse of what he might do to let the Faery Queen give back his immortality, a sidhe-seer named Gabrielle (Gabby) gets caught looking at him and he realizes she might just be able to save him.

Gabby tries to fight off his lure, but with his charms he is hard to keep resisting, and she just might be falling for one of the "things" her grandmother had told her always to stay away from. But what will happen once Adam gets his powers back? And with someone on Adam's tail trying to kill him over centuries old arguments while he's in human form, will they even survive before they get Adam to speak to the Queen?

4.5 out of 5 stars! It's a wonderful love story! Loved the characters! In addition, if you are a fan of the Fever series then you MUST read this book since it will give you a little more background info on Darroc -- why he was punished the way he was and how he started becoming what he is now.

My Previous Review(s) for this Series: Book 1

Like a bolt out of the blue, Fate steps in and sees you through. When you wish upon a star, Your dreams come true.

Format: Paperback | Pages: 375 | Release Date: March 1999 [Reissue edition] | Publisher: Dell

"Beyond the Highland Mist" [The Highlander Series, Book 1] by Karen Marie Moning -- This novel is set up with three situations going on that make this whole scenario that much more complicated.

First - We have Hawk. He's a Scotland laird from 1500's who is a legend to everyone around him, with his beautiful looks and his exceptionally knowledgeable skills in the bedroom, Hawk seems to be sought after by every female and is the envy of every man. However, for many years he hasn't been able to joy his skills and other delights as much as he use to, especially while he has been under the King's thumb having to do whatever he is told (even if it means having to bed woman he turned down). Just as his years of service are coming to an end, the King makes one more command; Hawk has to marry a lady called Mad Janet (who has spent most of her life trapped in a tower for unknown reasons).

Second - We have the King and the fool (aka the jester, aka Adam Black) of the fairy court. One day the Queen of the fairy court tells the King and Adam that she has been with Hawk and that he is everything that the legend states of him and more, all in attempt to make them jealous. And jealous they do get. So, the King and Adam plan on revenge against Hawk, to find him a woman who he can never have.

Third - We have Adrienne. She is from the 21st century, and has had very bad experiences with beautiful man. One in particular who used her without her knowledge for such a long time that once she found out his scams, he tried to kill her. And from then on she made a vow to hate all beautiful men, since she assumes they are all the same.

And so ... Adam chooses Adrienne and brings her back to the 1500's to fill Mad Janet’s place and marry Hawk. But can the legend melt her heart? Or will the fairy's revenge work?

3 out of 5 stars. Good book ... however, the tale was too drawn out ... and the issues could have been resolved sooner and possibly would have been a better book that way. =0P I did like the characters though! =0)

"A Knight to Remember" (now called "Rhodri") [Blood Sword Legacy, Book 5] by Karin Tabke -- Set in Wessex Coast, Southern England in 1068 ... Mercia has come back home from the abbey to see her older sister, Rowena, wed. However, while trying to seek out as much adventure she can before she goes back to the abbey to take her final vows (which she really does not want to do), Mercia decides to take a trip to the beach. Once she gets there she finds an injured man on the beach, and she feels hard pressed to help him.

Mercia set him up in a nearby cave and tends to his wounds. After the man regains consciousness, she finds that as he gets better he still doesn’t know who he is, but she still feels drawn to him just the same.

Back at her home, her family is still waiting for Rowena’s betrothed to arrive, and when his guards arrive without him, a search is set out.

What will happen once the man remembers who he is? Will Mercia be able to stay with this man and not complete her vows? Will Rowena’s betrothed ever arrive?

3.5 out of 5 stars! It's kind of like a Cinderella story, only without the Fairy Godmother and the Step Family, and kinda set into the real world of that time period. So - of COURSE I liked it! Very cute! Quite charming!

"Sleepless In Scotland" [MacLean Curse Series, Book 4] by Karen Hawkins -- Living in 1811 and being in London's High Society, have its consequences if you do not keep up decorum. This is what happens to Caitriona and Hugh when they try saving their siblings from themselves, however instead their plans backfire. Then they find themselves in compromising positions (at least for 1811), and since other people become aware of the situation they ended up in, the two are forced to marry each other.

Even though both do not want to marry each other, Caitriona tries to make the best of it, while Hugh tries to keep her from being as involved in his life as much as he can – especially when that means anything to with his daughters. Now with only a few months together (per Hugh’s “order”), so Caitriona can rebuild her reputation then move back into her family’s home, she has put up with the family she married into, that seems to not want her there, while trying to make them realize she is exactly what they needed. Will she succeed before it’s too late?

4 out of 5 stars. It's the first time I've read a book from this series and if this book is any estimation of the whole series then I would definitely recommend it to all of you! It was sweet, funny, and a great historical romance!!
