Rowena: I can remember it like it was yesterday. I had been posting regularly on the JGBB for quite some time now and had made some amazing friends. One of those friends was Izzy and she mentioned her love of KMM books. I hadn't read very many authors outside of Linda Howard, Judith McNaught and Julie Garwood but I was ready for more.
More came in the form of Beyond the Highland Mist.
I was to read all of the highlander books by Karen Marie Moning and if I wanted, I could start at Kiss of the Highlander but if I wanted to start at the beginning, I was to start with Beyond the Highland Mist.
I started with Beyond the Highland Mist, then I read To Tame a Highland Warrior and then I glommed the heck out of KMM.
And loved every single minute of all of those wonderful books. I became obsessed with her highlanders, Dageus MacKeltar to be exact and KMM instantly became an auto-buy for me. I gobbled up every book that I could get my hands on and waited anxiously for her other Highlander books to come out and when they did, I had to have them.
It all started with Beyond the Highland Mist and after The Dark Highlander, I knew that I was forever going to love KMM.
Holly: My story is pretty much the same as Rowena's. I was told I MUST read KMM, so I picked up Beyond the Highland Mist and that was that. I believe I was able to get the entire series (the ones that were out at the point) on ebay in one huge lot, so I read them all within a few days.
Looking back, I see the flaws in Mist and Warrior, but at the time I loved them. I'm going to re-read Mist first and see how it holds up. (ETA: I started re-reading Mist last night and I'm having a hard time getting into it. Not sure if it's me or the book, but I'm starting to think it isn't going to hold up very well.)
Casee: Kiss of the Highlander was the first KMM book I read. It was also the first time-travel. I discovered KMM fairly early on and had to wait for Daegus' book to come out. I was disappointed (and still am) when she left her Highlander series to continue the Fever series. I'm still waiting for that last Highlander book to come out, but I'm not holding my breath.
What about you guys? What was your first KMM book? Did you love it or hate it? Tell us all about it.
