Title: Drawn into Darkness
The first book in the a soul Gatherer Novel
Author: Annette McCleave
My rating 2/5
Lachlan MacGregor looks like a rather hunky priest, but the 400-year-old undead hero of McCleave's entertaining paranormal romance debut is actually serving penance by gathering souls destined for Heaven, saving them from demons. He also keeps an eye on Emily, the superpowered 14-year-old daughter of his downstairs neighbor, artist Rachel Lewis. Rachel is shocked by her instantaneous attraction to a man of the cloth, but Lachlan's happy to act on their chemistry in between supernatural battles. Swords flash, spells are cast, and twist and turns come head-spinningly quickly, but Rachel is game for anything as long as she can save her daughter and find true love. Readers will hope for sequels in which Emily grows up to be as feisty as Rachel and as powerful as Lachlan
I have tied to read this twice but never could really get into this book.
I think McCleave did great in creating the Soul Gatherers, plus the whole good and evil but, I thought the story took a little to long to get to the point. I really didn't care for Emily at first mostly because of her attitude. I also didn't care for the sex scenes its was cheesy in how they went about it.
I will try the next book it's hard to judge the whole series by the first book.

Ttile: Kiss the Highlander this is the number four in the Highlander series
Author: Karen Marie Moning
My rating. 4/5
A laird trapped between centuries...
Enchanted by a powerful spell, Highland laird Drustan MacKeltar slumbered for nearly five centuries hidden deep in a cave, until an unlikely savior awakened him. The enticing lass who dressed and spoke like no woman he’d ever known was from his distant future, where crumbled ruins were all that remained of his vanished world. Drustan knew he had to return to his own century if he was to save his people from a terrible fate. And he needed the bewitching woman by his side....
A woman changed forever in his arms...
Gwen Cassidy had come to Scotland to shake up her humdrum life and, just maybe, meet a man. How could she have known that a tumble down a Highland ravine would send her plunging into an underground cavern — to land atop the most devastatingly seductive man she’d ever seen? Or that once he’d kissed her, he wouldn’t let her go?
Bound to Drustan by a passion stronger than time, Gwen is swept back to sixteenth-century Scotland, where a treacherous enemy plots against them ... and where a warrior with the power to change history will defy time itself for the woman he loves....
Very good book it's different how many people get to go on vacation and end up back into the sixteenth century plus get a hunk that is a Druid that needs no sock to stuff his pants ya, thats in the book..This book did drag some before it ended but it was a good easy read. If you haven't read this series give it a try the first book was slow but the last four has been really good.
