My review: I loved it! I read it in one sitting; I could not put the book away. It did not matter, that it was already 3 am in the morning, but I finished it! It was romantic, exciting, funny book to read. I really enjoyed the writing, the story itself and characters! Well, give me a Scottish warriors and I'm totally hooked. Regarding the plot: Meet Bree - a sassy woman who thinks that she is about to find a treasure in the chapel in her backyard. Surprise, surprise! What she finds is a gorgeous Scottish warrior Faelan, who has been captured by the demon in the time vault for 150 years. Bree is suspicious that Faelan is nothing more but a thief, who took her treasure. Well, thief dressed in a kilt and acts like he really is from the past. Faelan again is suspicious of Bree being a demon or halfling or just accomplish of the demon that put him in the time vault. So both Bree and Faelan have lot to learn about each other and as the story develops also learn to trust each other. Step by step they realize that they not only need to trust each other, but also have to, because someone is after a book and a key which Bree has and which helped her to open the time vault. Besides trust there is a fast growing attraction, Faelan has serious difficulties with keeping his hands and other body parts off from Bree. Faelan is also intimidated by a woman like Bree - he has never even seen woman who lives alone without a male protector and who wear jeans and tank tops; that is very strange for Faelan. Story brings both Bree and Faelan to Scotland, because Bre finds out who Faelan is from and to both of their big surprise, there is a whole big clan of relatives - Connor Clan - clan of warriors! I loved the plot. In one way you could say, that it's a typical battle between the good and the evil, but there is so much more in this story. Regarding the characters: The main characters were perfect for each other! Bree was adventurous, bold and was not afraid of digging in the graves or save the love of her life. She was one (excuse my language) kickass heroine! Faelan was a male who was so confused by contemporary women and world, but learned quite quickly how to live and survive in it. I also adored the whole Connor Clan and can't wait to start reading the next book in the series. Generally: Awaken the Highland Warrior was very good paranormal romance book. It has magic about it and you find captivating characters, good plot, good versus evil, adventure and action in it. Very good start for the Connor Clan series! Can't wait start reading the second book in the series! 5 starsshow more
