Moning's books have layers, are complex, very heavy and well-researched books! even if you don't like romance, historical romance, or romantic fantasy GET THIS BOOK! you will love her style, skill, and wit!
her books are not only escape worthy, but they leave w/ enough food for your brain to chew on and a lot to talk about!
Men I know look down on women's romance books, but after reading one of her highlander books (like this one) or her Fever series (which is different, yet she tops her skill in this series) (they read these books due to the curiousity of why my friends and I were so into her, her characters, and her message board) they have become hooked! Reading them as quickly as possible and getting involved w/ the characters. If you're iffy about trying her still, then try her book Darkfever (fever series) you cannot go wrong there no matter what you're in too!
also, her books are in audio format! Phil G does the highlander series and the 4th book in the Fever series (with Natalie). His voice is orgasmic!
