Publisher's Summary

An alluring laird....

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.

What the Critics Say

"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)

    "More interesting than I thought"

    I was pleasantly surprised by how interesting this book was. It is your classical Gothic type love story. Mysterious and suspenseful as well.If this is the type of romance you like you will not be disappointed. Very well narrated.

    Would you listen to Beyond the Highland Mist again? Why?

    I love the "Outlander" series. This story was similar, but different in many ways. It was an enjoyable read.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The idea of being able to travel back to the past and the idea of true love.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When she comes back from the future.

    Story
    "Pretty good story"
    What did you love best about Beyond the Highland Mist?

    I like the story OK--though not the best I've ever read.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I liked the parts where she is learning about her "Laird." The least interesting was the parts about the gardens etc.


    What does Phil Gigante bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I like is brogue--very well done. Unfortunately he really does not do female parts well at all--too artificial sounding. I wish there had been male and female readers. Phil is great when he does all the male roles!


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

    Not really.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm only 85% finished with the book--sort of lost interest. Maybe it will pick up.

    Story
    "Very Pleasantly Surprised!"

    I bought this book because it was on sale and I had enough to buy the book with a cash credit. I wasn't sure at first if I would really like this book because it is not of my normal genres that I listen to. But I do love a good Scotland Warrior in a kilt... honestly what woman doesn't? So I gave it a try not expecting much.... it was on sale after all.

    Boy was I surprised to find that I absolutely LOVED it! I loved it enough that the rest of the series is now either in my cart or my wish list to spend my monthly credits on!

    I had read all the reviews and was a bit worried about the narration because of them but I found him to be an easy listen for a male reader. This man has a "purr" to his voice that is very exotic and intriguing.

    If you are looking for a fun, easy, yet riveting listen, this one is great!

    Story
    "Excellent story about love in a unusual way"
    What did you love best about Beyond the Highland Mist?

    This story is about love that was hard for the two lovers. It involves time travel which I love stories about and is why I bought the book. Once I got into the book it captured my attention and I had to listen to all of it. The story is about one of the lovers from modern day being thrown through time to find love in the past, that is all I am going to say about the story believe me it is worth having. I loved the fact that I could do everything I needed to do while I listened to it. The author is a best seller. This book is the first highland story in a series of highland stories. They all are worth having.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That after all the twist and turns love won in the end,


    Which character – as performed by Phil Gigante – was your favorite?

    Hawk


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

    When they were on horseback together and she realized that she did love him and gave her heart to him


    Any additional comments?

    This book is worth having and if you love it like I did buy all of them.

    I found myself having to go back and re listen to sections to follow what was going on. You have to concentrate or you'll get lost they tend to go back in time sporadically throughout the book and if you don't catch it you'll get lost. Other than that is was a good listen.
