his was even better the 2nd time around! I completely loved rereading it!
Hawk is known as an amazing warrior and lover. When he attracts the ire of a vengeful fairy, Adrienne tumbles out of the 20th Century and into his life. Forced to marry her, Hawk is astounded to find how much she attracts him and how much he immediately likes her. Adrienne isn't so generous in her feelings with Hawk. She wants nothing to do with this man that she sees as beautiful and faithless. It soon becomes clear that settling into marriage is not the only obstacle they face. Someone is out to cause harm to one of them and they must face that danger, their growing feelings for one another, the threat of Adrienne being taken back to her own time, and a fairy with a nasty temper.
Hawk was such a great character! I loved the way he had traveled and brought ideas he saw to make life better back to his castle. The kitchens and nursery sounded especially amazing. I liked the way he fell for Adrienne so immediately and owned his feelings without trying to talk himself out of caring for her.
It was a little frustrating to see Adrienne deny Hawk over and over and even refuse to say his name. Worse was when she made him think she wanted Adam instead. I liked her a lot, but was glad when she finally realized that Hawk was not a faithless womanizer, but a really good man.
I thought Lydia and Tavis and their changing relationship added to the story.
After reading all of the books of the series, it was interesting to come back to the beginning and meet these characters over again. I sure paid more attention to Adam this time around, and I have to say he didn't come out of this one looking too good!

2 stars I was both confused and bored with this book. Seems totally contradictory, but the storyline was all over the place but I was still bored and uninterested. It pains me to rate a Karen Marie ... Read full review
