Powerful. Sensual. Seductive. He is all that is shamelessly erotic in a man. In her sexiest Highlander novel yet, New York Times bestselling author Karen Moning stirs up a sizzling brew of ancient mystery and modern passion as she brings together a devilishly handsome Celtic warrior trapped in time . . . and the woman who’s about to pay the ultimate price for freeing him. Age-old secrets haunt them. Deadly danger and irresistible desire shadow their every move. It’s a relationship for the ages. And all that separates them is a mere thirteen hundred years. . . . Jessi St. James has got to get a life. Too many hours studying ancient artifacts has given the hardworking archaeology student a bad case of sex on the brain. So she figures she must be dreaming when she spies a gorgeous half-naked man staring out at her from inside the silvery glass of an ancient mirror. But when a split-second decision saves her from a terrifying attempt on her life, Jessi suddenly finds herself confronting six and a half feet of smoldering, insatiable alpha male. Heir to the arcane magic of his Druid ancestors, eleven centuries ago Cian MacKeltar was trapped inside the Dark Glass, one of four coveted Unseelie Hallows, objects of unspeakable power. When the Dark Glass is stolen, an ancient enemy will stop at nothing to reclaim it, destroying everything in his path–including the one woman who may just hold the key to breaking the ninth-century Highlander’s dark spell. For Jessi, the muscle-bound sex god in the mirror is not only tantalizingly real, he’s offering his protection–from exactly what, Jessi doesn’t know. And all he wants in exchange is the exquisite pleasure of sharing her bed. Yet even as Cian’s insatiable hunger begins to work its dark magic on Jessi, his ancient enemy is about to obtain the final and most dangerous of the Unseelie Hallows–and the ninth-century Highlander must stop him from getting it. Nothing less than the very fabric of the universe and two passionately entwined lives are at stake–as Cian and Jessi fight to claim the kind of love that comes along but once in an ice age. . . .From the Hardcover edition.

Jessi St. James is running yet another errand for a professor in the college where she's trying to get her PhD, when she's attacked in the professor's office, and protected by a kilt-wearing warrior she's summoned out of a mirror. The next morning she's sure it was all a dream, until she hears her ...
Okay, so whoa. That didn’t exactly end the way I expected. Don’t worry! It wasn’t bad. It was just different from the other books in the series. It left things really open for another book. Or, at least, it felt that way to me. I know I still have to read Into the Dreaming, but the synopsis to that ...
Cian and Jessi's story in Spell of the Highlander is just another meh book in the series. It's not great, it's not bad, and it doesn't even have the interesting Fever backstory that really need to have something new thrown in so we aren't reading the same book, but different people over and over ag...
Updated review - I first read this about 3 years ago and reviewed it back then, but I don't think it's a very good review (although I completely agree with it), so I want to revise it.In most, if not all, of Moning's books the heroine comments (usually under her breath) that they don't make men like...
Building on the last couple of novels, this one hints even more at what is to come in the Fever series. Now I am definitely going to have to read them again! Although rather formulaic, you just can't help loving the sexy alpha males and [mostly] smart females in this series.
