Comments The Highlander's Touch

  • Kat Kennedy

    In case you're wondering, yes, I am thoroughly ashamed.How can I possibly give this book more stars than Madame Bovary? It's disgusting. It's tragic. Worst of all, it doesn't even makes sense. I don't LIKE Historical Romance! C'mon, I DARE you to find something dignifying about this.I don't like TIME TRAVEL Historical Romance! I don't like modern woman meets warrior Highlander Hunk. First of all, it's been done - so many times. Never as well as Outlander, in my opinion. And I swear, if life imit [...]

    Circenn and Lisa's story - Circenn is a half-human, half-fae man living in the 14th century. He is also immortal thanks to Adam Black slipping the magic Fae liquid that makes humans immortal into his drink when he was in his 30's. Circenn is quite the broody Brud (sorry couldn't resist). He placed a curse on a flask that causes the flask to come back to him. He doesn't realize that his curse will also bring back whoever touches the flask.Enter Lisa, who is working her night time shift in a museu [...]

    Now I understand why "everyone" loves this series! :)Circenn Brodie is one of the most "delicious" heroes I've ever met. Truly tall, dark & handsome! The scene where Lisa finds him sleeping at her bedroom door had me melting into a puddle of love. It reminded me of a similar scene from Kinley MacGregor's Born in Sin and, come to think of it, Circenn's nickname was practically identical to MacGregor's hero's name in the same book, but I didn't mind it at all. I'm in love with Circenn and that [...]

    Circenn is immortal in Scotland and he really hates it. He hates seeing people he loves, wives, favourite pets dying around him for the past 500 years. Lisa lives in the 21st century. She is looking after her sick mother and she is working 2 jobs to pay for the bills. A little of magic and she ends up in old Scotland while Circenn has already taken an oath to kill her. Of course they fall in love.In this book Adam Black is manipulating people's lives again and there is a huge revelation about hi [...]

    Posted on Under the CoversIf a cursed flask holding an immortal elixir is what it takes to travel back in time to find a Highlander hottie like Circenn, then I’m getting my butt on the next train to the museum!Lisa Stone is twenty-three years old. Her mother, Catherine is sick with cancer and solely relies on her daughter to provide for her in her dying days. Instead of attending college with her friends, Lisa works two jobs, one of which is at a museum. Little does Lisa know that the ancient [...]


  • UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish

    The Highlander’s Touch is the third book in Karen Marie Moning’s Highlander series and once again we’re back with a heavy time travel influence. But this time, whether because I’m getting used to it or perhaps it was better written, the time travel didn’t bother me as much as it did in Beyond the Highland Mist and other time travel books I’ve read. I really do hope it’s just me becoming more comfortable with the theme, because it seems I’m missing out on a lot of great Highlander [...]


  • Adina

    Since I was thinking about bad books, I remembered I read this at the beginning of the year and forgot to add it to my read folder. The book feels like a writing exercise in preparation for the Fever series (which I loved). Yeah, she can write a sex scene but that's about it. Not recommended.


  • Lady Gabriella of Awesomeness

    ★★★3 Stars★★★-Please excuse my overuse of the word pleasant in this review because I don't think any other word to describe this novel better.*Wince*The Highlander's Touch was a pleasant enough read to earn a 3 star from me.I didn't love it but it wasn't in any way a bad read either.Just very forgettable.Main Characters were pleasant enough but there wasn't anything overly original about them that made me want to root for them as a individual characters or as a couple. :/The only cha [...]

    Karen seni aşırı seviyorum❤️ Klişe bir konuyu alıp böyle muhteşem yapabilmesi inanılmaz bir şey. Ve bir şekilde bunu Ateş serisine bağlamış olması da mutlu etmedi değil🤗 Circenn aşırı ateşliydi. İskoçlara bir zaafım olduğunu hep söylemişimdir ama bu adam bir başkaydı ya❤️


  • Kristen

    3 to 3 1/2 starsI'm glad I read this series out of order (these books can be read out of order). I'm honestly not sure if would have continued the series had I read the first three books in the series first. Personally, I don't think the series was particularly engrossing until after the third book. Books four, five, and six are my favorite, with book six, The Immortal Highlander, my favorite of the series. You must, however, read books four, five, six, and seven in order. I recommend reading th [...]


  • ♥Sam ♥ ~S2~Im made of awesomness

    I was going to write a review, but Im just completely blank. I will however say what I deem important to say - This book was awesome. Circeen had a manclub the size of an elephant. Lisa was horny all the time. They could freakishly read each others minds - a talent I wouldnt mind having with my husband. The story was funny. The story was great. A happily ever after with trimmings on top!

    While cleaning her boss' office, Lisa comes across an artifact. She touches it and is transported back in time to the 14th century where she meets a very naked Scottish warrior.Sounds great doesn't it? Well it is yet another fun summer read. The Highlander's Touch is the third book in Karen Marie Moning's Highlander series. Once again, we have the tall, well built, muscular hunk of a man as our hero. We have the requisite virgin. Add in a little fae mischief and we have a great way to spend the [...]


  • Lisa

    So, this was the first book in the series that actually had an immortal dude in it. I know, right? A Highlander series where so far only one guy is immortal.I'll admit it wasn't bad in the beginning, but close to the end is where it took a turn for the, not worse, but totally and completely ridiculous.I tell you, I practically saw it coming and had to speed read because I couldn't believe she actually tied it up in such a way. And like the last two books, the heroines always - I repeat, always - [...]

    Después del chascazo del anterior libro de la Saga no le tenía mucha fe a este libro, tengo una relación amor odio con esta escritora. Pero menos mal que en este vuelve a sus orígenes, a la línea que comenzó con la Nieblas de las Highlands, los viajes en el tiempo, la fantasía, las faes, y a Adam Black y eso me gusto, pero la traducción ha sido tan penosa que no le podido dar más puntuación. De los protagonistas que decir, Lisa todo lo que le pasa es por su curiosidad, con ella el dich [...]


  • Eastofoz

    Book 3 in Moning's Highlander series is better than 1 and 2 but still lacks some oomph. There's too much narration and not enough dialog at times. Circenn Brodie (great name!) is one sexy Highlander! Think of the most beautiful marble sculpture you've ever seen and that's Circenn--pure eye candy! The one off thing about him that he's 6'7! That's gigantic even if he is an immortal!Lisa, the heroine, is a bit drab and some of the things she says or does reminded me a toddler stamping their feet in [...]


  • Monty Cupcake ☠ Queen of Bloodshed ☠

    Good, but not as wonderful as the next book in this series. That one is swoon worthy. I really want Adam Black's book now. I know his story is going to be fun.


  • Jamie *Gypsy Smut-a-teer*

    I'm really really liking this series. I fall in love over again with each character.Lisa and Circenn meet on less than normal cirumstances. She is a girl from the present with a lot of responsibilty on her shoulders. He is a fierce warrior who is immortal from the fourteenth century. The saying Curiousity kills the Cat is basically right on point in this story. She touches a historical flask of her bosses where she wasn't even supposed to be. The Flask had been cursed sending her straight back t [...]


  • Vika aka ♔ of GIF & Grumpy Smut-ateer *P/T Freebie Fairy

    Really enjoyed the story of a true Scottish Brute Warrior (of kilt wearing variety OF COURSE!) Cin and a woman from 21st century trapped in 14th century - Lisa Stone.Lisa living through the worst time of her life with working multiple jobs & doing everything possible to make her mom's last days comfortable. Working as a night cleaning lady at a museum curiosity gets the better of her and opens pandora's box aka cursed object that send her RIGHT TO 14th century -> to Cin -> during bath [...]


  • BJ Rose

    There were a lot of things to like about this book.Circenn and his insistence on following a few basic rules - until he meets Lisa and starts breaking his own rules one by one. Circenn and his love for his family and his people. Circenn and his old-fashioned morals and gentleness. Circenn and his desire to make Lisa happy. Circenn andI found it very easy to empathize with Lisa and her problems in the present time, and to respect her because she put aside her dreams to work menial jobs and care f [...]


  • Olga

    No ha estado mal este libro aunque leerlo de una traduccion hace que pierda mucho la historia en este libro el protagonismo absoluto se lo lleva Cin, por sus pensamientos, sus reglas y su oscuro pasado ella se deja llevar y no he sentido en ningun momento que este a la altura de Cin. Estoy deseando leer el libro de Adam jejejeNo es de las mejoreas sagas de Karen Marie Moning pero se deja leer y cambio de registro!


  • Lover of Romance

    Lisa is shocked when, at one of her two jobs, she ends up through her curse of curiosity persay, she ends up being taken back through time, 700 years in Medieval Scotland, with a sword being pointed at her throat. Definitely not what she imagined her day turning out. Circern, when seeing a woman appear before him holding the "flask" he knows he has to remember his vow, and destroy her, but he hesitates thinking that she could be a innocent.Lisa is determined to find a way back to her own time, b [...]


  • Natasha

    Fantastic! The Highlanders Touch is the third installment in the Highlander series by the amazing Karen Marie Moning!I'm a huge fan of Moning, she has two amazing series under her belt, the Fever series and of course the Highlander series. Two of which that are very different, yet have similar characters and theories. They cross between each other from time to time, but are not officially connected. This time around we are dealing with Circenn Brody and Lisa. Circenn is the keeper and guard of t [...]


  • Susan

    Sorry, I'll be the odd one out here and like this book less than the previous two. It came in at around a two to three stat rating, which is a pity as the hero is rather scrumptious.But there are just too many continuity flaws in the plot and I don't mean as in relates to the time travel stuff!! Lisa booby-traps the floor of the room with shards of pottery, Circenn cuts himself on a couple, next thing they're rolling around on the floor with nary another scratch. At one point it's mentioned that [...]


  • liirogue

    Dear God this was horrible! I expected cheesy, but not rampant stupidity, giant plot holes, and the mother-of-all cop out endings.First of all, a 5'10 woman in the 1300's would have been considered a giant, not "above average." Good luck finding clothes that fit and walking through doorways.Second, did the main character have even two brain cells to rub together? Because you sure can't tell by her actions. Every possible action is done to ensure maximum chaos and misunderstandings. Bonus points [...]


  • Gemma

    What can I say about this book?Overall I really rather enjoyed this book. The characters were engaging and the storyline was intresting. I liked the little spin on the time travel theme in this book.Lisa was a very ballsy heroine, who although seemed to come around to Ciaranns way of thinking, was not the simpering wallflower, who just accepted she was in the 14th centurary and thus acted as was proper for this time.I did like the little plot twist regarding Ciarrans relationship to Adam and the [...]


  • Laura (Kyahgirl)

    3.5/5; 4 stars; B+I really enjoyed this audiobook. A few years ago I had picked up a different book in this series and didn't care for it so wasn't really expecting too much here. It was a nice surprise to find an intelligent and gutsy heroine and a tough but kindhearted hero. Many parts of this story made me laugh out loud. One thing that I enjoyed was coming to understand the character of Adam Black a bit better. He is not the main character in this book but his shenanigans are behind a lot of [...]


  • Fani *loves angst*

    This was a nice romance about one beautiful, self-sacrificing, kind-hearted heroine and an incredibly handsome, kind-hearted, honorable highlander. The dilemma, should the heroine return to her dying mother in the present, or stay with the man she loved in the past, tried to add some tension to an otherwise tame story. Nice but not really my cuppa; I prefer less perfect protagonists in my romances.
