The Dark Highlander by Karen Marie Moning

I am Dageus MacKeltar, a man with one good conscience and thirteen bad ones, driven to sate my darkest desiresÂ…From his penthouse lair high above Manhattan, Dageus looks out over a glittering city that calls to the darkness within him. A sixteenth-century Scot trapped between worlds, he is fighting a losing battle with the thirteen Druids who possess his soul, dooming him to an eternity of sexual pursuit. When Chloe Zanders, student of antiquities, is drawn into his world, she finds the insatiable alpha male an irresistible lure. Before long, she is caught up in an ancient prophecy that will sweep her back into time to medieval Scotland. Plunged into a world of timeless magic and dark seduction, she will soon face the challenge of a lifetime: fighting thirteen evil spirits for the heart of one irresistible man....

What happened is that while Drustan lay sleeping, there was a fire and he died. Dageus, who knew Gwen would be waiting for him in the future, travels back in time to save Drustan's life. In doing so, he became cursed. The Mackeltars were to never travel through time for personal gain.

So now Dageus is living in the present trying to figure out how to undo the curse. With each day that passes, it grows stronger. Chloe delivers a book to his penthouse and finds artifacts galore. She is caught snooping around and finds out that Dageus has been stealing artifacts from other museums. Dageus catches her and then ties her to the bed. He explains he is just borrowing them. Yeah right she thinks.

Later on she hears on the news all the artifacts stolen, we returned to police headquarters. She is puzzled by this sexy, handsome, highlander. She's attracted to him too. But keeps denying it. I mean, the man dropped his towel and she just kind of stood there shocked. Now, I know I would've been shocked, but after coming to my senses I would've ran up the stairs and just thrown myself shamelessly at him. But that's just me.

He asks her to visit Scotland with him. Dageus needs to see what he can find about the curse in the Mackeltar library. Meaning he'll have to face Drustan and admit he's cursed. They arrive in Scotland and Chloe is shocked to learn Drustan and Dageus are twins. That little reunion is cute.

Drustan explains the books are gone. Which means one thing, Dageus has to travel back in time. He asks Chloe to come with him. To just trust him. Not knowing where she is going, she agrees.

I love Dageus. He's my favorite Mackeltar twin. 1) He's tortured. 2) The eyes. Yeah, I'm a sucker for tortured hereos and eyes. But I have to say, I like Drustan's story better. Chloe is a sweet gal, but I don't know. I didn't love her like I loved Gwen. I can't exactly pin it though. Anyway, it is a good story though. I enjoyed seeing Nell and Silvan again. Got a good chuckle when Silvan fainted from seeing the queen. We also get a glimpse of our favorite bad boy Adam. My favorite scene is when Dageus and Chloe exchange their binding vows and the same time Silvan is finally binding himself to Nell. It was just really sweet.

I give it: B
