Kiss of the Highlander by Karen Marie Moning

A laird trapped between centuries...
Enchanted by a powerful spell, Highland laird Drustan MacKeltar slumbered for nearly five centuries hidden deep in a cave, until an unlikely savior awakened him. The enticing lass who dressed and spoke like no woman he'd ever known was from his distant future, where crumbled ruins were all that remained of his vanished world. Drustan knew he had to return to his own century if he was to save his people from a terrible fate. And he needed the bewitching woman by his side....

A woman changed forever in his arms...

Gwen Cassidy had come to Scotland to shake up her humdrum life and, just maybe, meet a man. How could she have known that a tumble down a Highland ravine would send her plunging into an underground cavern—to land atop the most devastatingly seductive man she'd ever seen? Or that once he'd kissed her, he wouldn't let her go?

Bound to Drustan by a passion stronger than time, Gwen is swept back to sixteenth-century Scotland, where a treacherous enemy plots against them ... and where a warrior with the power to change history will defy time itself for the woman he loves....


After to Tame a Highlander Warrior, this one is my favorite. This is the first book about the MacKelter men. The first two being the twins, Drustan and Dageus.

We have Gwen who traveling through Scotland looking for a cherry picker. (someone to devirginize her) She stumbles upon an enchanted Drustan MacKeltar. A spell was placed on him and he's been sleeping for five centuries. Gwen wakes him and he of course realizes he's not in his time and must get back.

He tries to explain to Gwen, but she's having none of it. Drustan pleads with her to just come with him to where his castle used to be. He'll prove his story true. He takes her to the stones so he can travel back in time. As they are making their way, they are both attracted to each other. Gwen wants him. Drustan wants her. They make love. Right after, Drustan sends her back to his time. He tries to come with her, but he can't.

Gwen is then on a mission to get the past Drustan to believe her. This time, he's having none of that. He won't even listen to her story. She tries "fluffing her breasts" to get his attention. Drustan reacts by hiding in his chamber. Gwen comes up with a plan, along with the help of Drustan's dad, Silvan, to lock Drustan in the garderrobe.

Of course, Drustan is not happy. He yells for a few hours. Finally, he shuts up and agrees to listen to Gwen. Not only does she tell him everything, she tells him how they made love. Did I mention his dad and the housekeeper are also listening in to all this. His dad tries to convince Nell to leave, but she says no and she's not missing a thing. I thought that was cute.

Drustan gets his memory back. He made Gwen remember a memory charm before he sent her back in time. He was said the druid marriage vows to her. She said them back to him when she was retelling her story not knowing what she was saying. The druid marriage vows binds the man and woman together.


If aught must be lost, ' twill be my honor for yours.
If one must be forsaken, 'twill be my soul for yours.
Should death come anon, 'twill be my life for yours.
I am Given

Gwen and Drustan are happy. They put their heads together to find out why Drustan was enchanted and who would do him harm. A small fight occurs, Gwen is taken back to her time right as Drustan is shot at. When she realizes where is she at, she's heartbroken and Drustanless.

What happens next, you'll have to read to find out.

I love the story line with Silvan and Nell. They are so cute. Love when Gwen mistakes Dageus for Drustan andpracticallyy jumps on him. Drustan's jealously is just priceless. Love the scene when Drustan is trying on his trews and Gwen asks if he stuffed the jeans with a sock. I mean, damn. He couldn't even zip up the jeans. Damn. We also get a glimpse of Dageus' loneliness.

So, I love this story. Second favorite so far.
