Karen Marie Moning- Beyond the Highland Mist (book 1)

I took a small step from what I normally read to try this series and at first I was not really that into it but once it got going I liked it.
Hawk is a Laird in Scotland in the sixteenth century and Adrienne is a woman from modern times- he is a womanizer that does not want to settle down and she is a scorned woman who has sworn off beautiful men. Well in pops a vengeful fairy who snatched her from 1997 and put her back in time to the 1530's where men ruled the land and his castle. King James was a mean spiteful king who was jealous of Hawk's parents so when Hawk's father passed away the king said his dying wish was promising his newborn son into servitude for fifteen years to the King. Hawk performed his duties and when he was about to be released the King announced he would marry the woman of the King's choice, he picked Mad Janet, a crazy woman from another town thinking he was doing something so evil to Hawk. Mad Janet was killed and when the fairy dropped Adrienne into her father's lap he took the opportunity to use Adrienne to his advantage. She was wed to Hawk and taken back to his castle. The evil Fae, Adam, stayed around to seek revenge on Hawk and tried to woo Adrienne to his side just to hurt Hawk for something he thought Hawk did to his Queen. Adrienne thought she had feelings for Adam but truly she was in love with Hawk. Adam and the King took turns returning Adrienne back and forth from the past to the future, she would just flash in and out. To get Adri away from Adam, Hawk took her to a town days away and they finally became husband and wife in every sense of the word. Adam then threatened Hawk so Adri had to pretend she did not want Hawk anymore and she was returned back to 1997. So Hawk did everything possible to find and return Adri to him. Does she return to him??? Are they happy?? OR does he return to her day and time??

  5. No they are connected- they just don't run together as a continuous series but certain characters are mentioned in each book but they can be read as stand alone books too
