When I read Kiss of the Highlander, I was enthralled. I had just realized that there was something out there called paranormal romance. There was a whole world of vampires, werewolves, and even time-travel. Back then I could spend hours in my favorite, yet totally unorganized, used bookstore looking for all time travel books I could find. It was there that I found a totally beat up copy of Kiss of the Highlander.
I think of Kiss of the Highlander was my first time travel, but technically it wasn’t. A Knight in Shining Armor by Jude Deveraux was my first time travel and I thoroughly hated that book. The whole reincarnated thing just doesn’t work for me. Not even a little bit. That’s why I generally block that book out all together.
When I finally read it, I was totally intrigued by Drustan MacKeltar. I was fascinated by male Druids as opposed to female witches in other paranormal books. I loved that Drustan was brought to a time that was not his own. I think that was one of my favorite parts of that book. Drustan was forced to adapt. Gwen and Drustan were just amazing.
To make a long story short, I loved each of your books as I read them (with exception of the Fever series). That’s why I’m having a hard time understanding why I can’t re-read any of your books. I’ve tried to re-read three of them. Three books that I would have said I loved five years ago bore me to tears now. I’m inclined to say that it’s me. Not only have my reading tastes changed, but my tolerance for certain things is a lot lower than it used to be.
So is it you or me?
