Into the Dreaming by Karen Marie Moning

Aspiring romance novelist Jane Sillee was completely in love with her fantasy man - the hot and strapping dark-haired Highlander who'd been coming to her in her dreams for years and inspired her sensual flights of literary fancy.

But it was more than her imagination that conjured up the brilliantly woven tapestry sporting the spitting image of her magnificently arrogant warrior. It was more than a dream that transported her to medieval Scotland to break an evil spell. And it was more than she could handle when she found herself wrapped in the muscular arms of Aeden MacKinnon, who had his won fantasies to fulfill.

This novella was originally published in the Tapestry anthology that also featured Lynn Kurland, Sherrilyn Kenyon and Madeline Hunter. It was recently rereleased as a kind of standalone novella and at only about 100 pages long it is a very quick read. I'm not really sure what I think of the format, and I'm not sure that I have seen too many others around in this format. As someone who came a bit later to this author, it is good to be able to easily locate this story that means that I have read most of what have been published. Just waiting for her latest, Darkfever, to come in at the library. Can't wait!!

As the first piece of writing that KMM had published, you can definitely see the bare bones of what became her really successful Highlander books. There is time travel, hot men in kilts, feisty virgin heroine, and the fae are there as well.

Well worth reading if you are a KMM fan!
