    He was born to a clan of warriors of supernatural strength, but Gavrael McIllioch abandoned his name and his Highland castle, determined to escape the dark fate of his ancestors. Hiding his identity from the relentless rival clan that hunted him, he called himself Grimm to protect the people he cared for, vowing never to acknowledge his love for ravishing Jillian St. Clair.

    Overall

    Phil Gigante reads it with all the ferocity that is befitting the Highland Warrior in this book. At first I was not sure I could enjoy a book like this with a man reading but his voices for these characters brings them to life. Phil I hope that you will continue to do these audio books for you have a talent that is only matched by Karen Marie Moning's talent for writing something as spell binding as this. Just a little history for my best friends reaction to this book she listened to the first half and went home and attacked her husband and he now wants her to listen to all of them. Karen you either have a great imagination or a superb lover I would like to have one of them my self the lover that is. Keep up the good work. Thanks Audible for allowing us to listen to these great stories at such a great price.

    Story

    This story is amazing. I learned so much about the Japanese customs that I never knew from this. As well as a few words of Japanese while listening to it. I enjoyed it so much that I immediately purchased the other James Clavell books available. I have always enjoyed historical novels but this is one that truly amazed me. You have got to read (listen) to it. The narrator does a great job with the different characters voices and keeps the story moving with voice inflection. This is the best thing about audio books. I can read a book while I am driving totally wonderful.

    The surprising news that dashing steward Harrison Tolly, illegitimate son of the Earl of Ashwood, is the rightful heir to his father’s estate comes at a most inopportune time. With a wedding on the horizon and a baby on the way, a new life of privilege and prestige would be a blessing but for one problem: His heart belongs to another woman. Harrison keeps his desires for his employer’s wife, Lady Olivia Carey, so hidden that even she does not know of his devotion.

    From the moment he beds Desi, Caine knows turmoil will follow. Desi might have the face of a temptress, but she also has a will of iron, and while she needs his protection, she's determined that no man will control her again. They establish an uneasy bond, but it isn't enough for Caine. He wants all Desi has to offer. He wants her screams, her moans, her demands...everything. Yet there's still a bounty on Desi's head, and keeping her sexually satisfied is proving easier than keeping her alive.

    Where does Caine's Reckoning rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is to Graphic in the sex department the most of the story is about sex, not the story There needs to be more story outside of the sexual scene and what is this authors fascination with sex in the wrong hole???? Just a little too much but the story line was good aside from that.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Desi fought with the Rooster


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No

    On the run from the wrathful Prince of Wales, Jack Haines, Earl of Lambourne, is taken prisoner by a Highland laird who makes him an unusual offer: if Jack handfasts his niece, then his life will be spared. The old Highland custom – a marriage lasting only a year and a day, unless both partners agree to make it a lifelong vow – sounds preferable to Jack to being dragged to London in chains, and when he meets lovely Lizzie Beal, his dilemma starts to seem positively enjoyable. Until the hellion vents her fury....

    It was entertaining and performed very well.

    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.

    Brenda says: "Could stand alone in the series"
    "Again, they just get better and better"

    I love hearing about the Fey and the highlanders they are so amazing and Karen seem to have unlimited talent and imagination or maybe this is true???? if so are there any more where they came from? Thanks

    He was a mighty Scottish warrior who lived in a world bound by ancient laws and timeless magic. But no immortal powers could prepare the laird of Castle Brodie for the lovely accursed lass who stood before him. A terrible trick of fate had sent her 700 years back in time and into his private chamber to tempt him with her beauty.

    E. Anderson says: "Fabulous!!"

    He was known throughout the kingdom as Hawk, legendary predator of the battlefield and the boudoir. No woman could refuse his touch, but no woman ever stirred his heart - until a vengeful fairy tumbled Adrienne de Simone out of modern-day Seattle and into medieval Scotland.

    Overall

    This is a spellbinding book that makes me want to keep driving I listen to it on my way to work and back and I love the highlander I just wish there were still men like this in todays world. Phil Gigante is a great voice for all the characters and makes the story come to life. Thanks both to Karen Phil and Audible for making a lonley woman dream of a better life out there. I helps to take my mind off of the problems I face they take me to another time and place where women are cherished and treated like a woman should be treated. Not where they are taken for granted and used up and then discarded like last weeks garbage to make room for another.

    This is an excellent book. I am just not satisfied with the Narrator She is not as talented with the voice changes like the other books I have listened to. But still is an excellent read.

    I have read the Mallory books several times and now am listening to them again Just cant get enough of those Mallory men. I wish they would make some movies from this series. They would be so great but then maybe finding enough men that are as handsome as these men are described might be hard.

    Thanks Johanna for sharing your great talent.
