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.
Captive in a century not her own, entirely too bold, too outspoken, she was an irresistible challenge to the 16th-century rogue. Coerced into a marriage with Hawk, Adrienne vowed to keep him at arm's length - but his sweet seduction played havoc with her resolve.
A prisoner in time....
She had a perfect "no" on her perfect lips for the notorious laird, but Hawk swore she would whisper his name with desire, begging for the passion he longed to ignite within her. Not even the barriers of time and space would keep him from winning her love. Despite her uncertainty about following the promptings of her own passionate heart, Adrienne's reservations were no match for Hawk's determination to keep her by his side.
Great Scot! Don't miss our other titles in the Highlander series.

"Phil Gigante's handling of the prose in Moning's clever paranormal romance is smooth and engaging, but it is his character voicings that truly make this recording one to remember." (AudioFile)
This is a very well written interesting story. I just finished a series where most if the time I berated the main character for being too riduclous to be even partially believable. This series has been a complete breath of fresh air. I didn't want to stop listening I couldn't wait to see what happened next. This book had flawed characters that are very lovingly redeemable and i was easily able to identify with them.
I have very much enjoyed the magical qualities of this story. it is something different than what is mainstream supernatural right now (ie vamps and wolves) but with still enough magic to take me away from my everyday life and to a place where magic and fairies exist. It had just enough to intrigue but balanced it with humanity and mistakes of both worlds. I am looking forward to the next book in the series.
I have not listened to any of Phil Gigantes previous perfomances but I enjoyed this one. He has a very smooth and almost relaxing voice. It took a little getting used to when he would read a female character but after a while you don't seem to notice, but I suspect that would be the case with any male narrator. He definitely makes up for it when he reads the male characters. His voice made The Hawk even more attractive for me. The only truly disappointing thing for me about his narration was the brutal slaughter of a southern dialect. The heroine is from New Orleans but for me, listening to this attempt at a southern drawl was completely over the top and fabricated. I am a southerner and it was very hard to listen it especially in a falsetto. But all in all, I look forward to the next book in this series with him as the narrator, I just hope none of the characters are from below the Mason Dixon...
I definitely recommend and cannot wait to read the next book.
This was my first Karen Moning novel. Although the narrator's voice was a close runner up to Robert Petkoff's steamy scottish narrations in other audiobooks, I actually enjoyed this. I loved the concept of time travel to an ancient exotic place into the arms of a sexy lead male character. I also thought the author did a real nice job in painting the picture of the environment and characters so that if you closed your eyes you felt like you were there. I'm not sure why other did not enjoy this book. I found it to be a great mental escape. The only negative thing I would say about this book was that I felt like the author rushed the ending. Definitely giving Book 2 a try. I would recommend this!
At the top.
The story line is awesome.
I was read in such a manner that I thought I was right in the book. It was so awesome.
The love is discribe so tenderly that it would give me chills.
Loved the story
Adrianna she was strong & sassy
I thought the Scots accent could have been a bit better
When he finally believed she was from the future
I'm a mother of 3 kids ages 3-6! I love to read but don't have the time. I found that audiobooks are the thing for me! I can't get enough
I am a obsessive fan of KMM and her Fever Series. I just didn't know if I would like this. Oh boy did I! I can't wait to get the next one!!!
Listened to the whole book in a couple of sittings. Got aggravated with the bull headed heroine, but that was part of the charm. Those are the books, that I can't put down, wondering what she'll come up with next ( and try to call it logical) Really kept my interest.
truly a nice and suttle way to bring the readers into the world and introduce them into lore that she later builds on into a facinating plot toward the later books in the series.
I am easily amused!
Fantastic book set in a medieval Scotland. Wonderful characters with a story that grabs you and doesn't let go until the very end. An epic romance with a gorgeous Scotsman, a stubborn head strong heroine from the 21st century, and an evil fairy out for revenge. Sounds corny but is great fun.
This is one of my favorite books, and Ms. Moning is one my favorite writers. This book is fanciful and charming with a well-voiced narration. I cannot wait for her other books to be produced pn audible!.
