The Highlanders Touch is the third installment in the Highland series by Karen Marie Moning. I haven’t read the fever series yet, but her highland series I have just fallen for completely. I have enjoyed each of her books in the series so far, especially since I love anything romances to do with the Scottish Highlands. One of the things I didn’t expect when I first started reading this one, was how emotional this book would become for the reader, from beginning to end the plot was filled with excitement, adventure and lots of romance. The relationship between the two especially at first is a bit rocky, but there is a connection between the two and we see the first seeds of their love for each other. I loved both of these characters, they were full of depth and likeable. There was also a level of emotion that is portrayed throughout the book, that will touch any reader deeply. I absolutely adored reading this, and was such a magical read!!!
