“Ok, let me be clear. This series is straight trash (in case you couldn't deduce that from the book covers). Like, there is no literary award here other than, "The Steamy Trash" award. But if there WAS an award for steamy trash, this series would win. SOOO much better than Fifty Shades, although completely unrealistic and it takes a couple of books for the writing to get to a decent level. The best one is "Kiss of the Highlander", though I like all of the stories that involve Drustan and Daegus.”Lindsey H wrote this review Tuesday, July 2, 2013.

“OMG I Want a highlander druid
“So of course with this tremendous find, I hounded Cimmaron to pick up the series as well. At first I felt anxious that she wouldn't like it but I'm glad that it went the other way. Thus this blog and everything else Became.
Now Cimmaron took it further, she went back and gave the Highlander Series a go. If you've been following our blog for quite some time, you might have read about Cimmaron gushing about these Scottish warriors. So hoping to get me infatuated with these Highlanders, she lent me the first seven books.
Overall I found the series funny and I was happy to pick up new terms like toop, tupping and doona ken. These men are magnificent creatures and how cool is it that they are like Barrons? Tall, dark and definitely handsome, pure undiluted testosterone. Even the side stories are funny, it's your typical romantic comedy in paper. I also loved that Aoibheal, pre-comatose, was a permanent fixture in all the books. It made me understand why the King fell in love with her and caused all that shiznit to go down in Fever.
My favorite are Hawk and Grimm's stories. It was non stop LOL alternated by delicious shivers running up and down my spine the entire time I was reading it. All the stories are old school historical romance that I'd lose sleep over when I was in my teens. The characters are engaging and the scenarios are so ridiculous that I can't help but wish I'd fall in a cave and wake a slumbering Highlander.
The Highlander series is a hodgepodge of everything you want in a romance novel. It has all the right ingredients that would make you want to plan a trip to Scotland and start wearing a lot of plaid and wish a guy who's six and a half feet tall would come and claim you as theirs.
It's obvious that I'm rambling and that's because I can't get enough of Karen and her world. I wish she writes a Fae series after Fever and I'm praying that the movie adaptation will be as kick ass as the novels.”
