Aspiring romance novelist Jane Sillee was completely in love with her fantasy man -- the hot and strapping dark-haired Highlander who d been coming to her in her dreams for years and inspired her sensual flights of literary fancy.
But it was more than her imagination that conjured up the brilliantly woven tapestry sporting the spitting image of her magnificently arrogant warrior. It was more than a dream that transported her to medieval Scotland to break an evil spell. And it was more than she could handle when she found herself wrapped in the muscular arms of Aedan MacKinnon, who had his own fantasies to fulfill..
My Thoughts and Review
Great read as always. Loved the story.Jane Sillee is as aspiring writer. She believes in fantasy and romance.She has been dreaming about her dream man for some time hoping to find him in real life.Her dream man is a Highland Warrior who was tricked and sent into the Fey Realm for 5 years where is was torched and made into a killing machine.But, fate steps in and with the help of a busy body Queen the two star crossed lovers are thrown into each others path and Jane thrown back in time and lands naked no less in her dream lovers front yard and he doesn't even know her !
At the beginning of this story I never laughed so much in a book.Jane's antics are hilarious. She does all kinds of things to get the Highlanders attentions with her wiles and smart mouth. Anything to get him to remember her...She only has one month to get Aedan MacKinnon, to love her and remember who they were to one another.
Aedan is a hardened warrior for sure.He has had a horrible captivity and has painful wounds that run deep. So when you see his protective shell start to crack little by little you get to see a softer side of him that was good and buried.His interactions with Jane are really funny and had you chuckling quite a bit which was really nice to see as you could not help feel his aura of pain.He has lived so long in the Fey that he doesn't even believe he is human anymore.
One of the funniest scenes that I ever read was the scene where she tells him not to read the pages of her story that she has been writing.His expressions were priceless !
This was not an long story but, It was packed with tons of humor and romance.Some Time traveling,and meddling Fey.It was a page turner from beginning to end. You just couldn't wait to see what Jane did next !The reminder of the book was quite entertaining also. Karen gives us a look into the life of a writer sharing some of her works that were scraped and re-vamped and also her struggle to get published.After reading everything she has written I can't believe the horrors she went through just to get her work published.A less stronger willed person would have thrown in the towel but, not her !Loved reading her first Draft that was originally going to be the Dark Highlander.
She is an amazing author and we here at Angels recommended this read and her other books they are all fantastic in our book !
