I read all the Fever books, and totally loved them, so I thought I'd try the Highlander series. Maybe I made a mistake,.

I could not find the first one anywhere, so got maybe the fourth one...I really did not like it much at all. I loved the fae parts and the magic, but way too much romance.   I'm not offended, that's just too overdone or cliched; I thought I was reading a harlequin.

Are they all like that---are all the Highlander booksbasically romances ? Or would it make a big difference to read them in order?

I would read them in order. There's information from each one that continues as a background story in all of the series.

While they aren't necessary to read the Fever books, there is a lot of crossover and I have a feeling the next one will have even more. Especially with Christian.

But, that's just my opinion.

I loved both series. I would recommend reading Highlander in order. I think if you read HIghlander it helps with a bit of the background in the Fever series.

i haven't read the Highlander books, but as far as i can tell those are classified as romance, where the Fever books are more urban fantasy.  i *think* that's what you were asking.

Most definitely.

I like the Highlander books but they are definitely "paranormal romance" as opposed to "urban fantasy" like the Fever series.

I have no interest in the Highlander series, but I read Darkfever and thoroughly enjoyed it. I didn't feel like I wasn't getting the whole story, so I don't know if it would be necessary to read the Highlander books. Maybe I will change my mind about that after reading further into the series. Guess we shall see!

I read all of the Fever series,Loved it, and never felt like I was missing anything either. I do eventually want to read the Highlander series, but it probably wont be for awhile. TBR piles way too big. lol

I haven't read the Fever books but did read the Highlander series..the first few seem sorta independent other than Adam being so bad then the 2nd I'm not sure how it tied in but the last 5 or so had an storyline brining in a lot of the magic and curses and the fae seems like.Adam also shows up again. they are romance though but have the paranormal element. I think it starts with the book where Adam goes to the future and brings back little trinkets for this highlander and the highlander doesnt like seeing him and then this girl is cleaning and finds a box or something and Adam tells the highlander he has to find the box and kill the one who has it and of course he falls for the girl. then there are 2 about brothers.

I think you absolutely need to read the "fever" books in order; I can't imagine how it would make sense otherwise. I was sooooo hooked!

But thanks to those who figured out my question (which apparently was not clear)...I do not think I will be reading any more Highlander books; I far prefer the urban fantassy to the romance.

If you are a fan of the more current urban/fantasy books it would definitely be difficult to "back read" to their romance/timetravel books that they wrote much earlier in their career before there even was an urban/fantasy category:lol:    If you don't like romance I wouldn't bother.  I can't go reread any old Feehan books anymore as they seem so dated to me now.

Darkfever was a transition that loosely ties the two series.  I loved it when it came out as it was so vastly different a tone than other "romance" books at that time...and dear Lord, I do love me some Alpha male:lol:
