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)
I loved this book and all the others that followed. You wont be disappointed by any of the Highlander series. I dispoisted that there are only 4 books in this collection. I really hope there will be more Highlander series soon.
The story is well written and performed. The idea of time travel initially had me rolling my eyes, but the talented author makes it believable. Watch (listening) to the love story and of Hawk and Adrianne, well was..... you have to listen to it for yourself... I am saving my credits to buy the full set. Awesome...
Reading is a must-have ESCAPE...
A 20th century woman, distrusting of men, is thrust into 16th century Scotland by an evil mystical jester aimed at revenge. Forced to marry a Scottish laird and deal with some primitive 16th century marriage traditions, Adrienne deals as best she can. The foundation of the story, albeit a bit shaky initially, is consistent throughout. Both of the main characters are tormented by past experiences and their hang ups stall the romance.
Moments in the story are incredibly frustrating, even feel like it drags out at times. But all in all, Beyond the Highland Mist is a fun read. The first in the series, Beyond... seems to get mixed reviews. This is one of those books you'll have to decide for yourself... it's either love it or not.
FYI: Like other readers of the series noted previously, Books 4-7 do not have to be read after 1-3, so I opted to try reading them out of order.
I love to read all genres of books, but love my historical romances!!!
I loved the story line, the characters and especially the narrator. It's nice when the men don't sound like old women. Phil Gigante has an incredible voice and I would listen to anything he narrates.
it was a pretty good story
yes, and I have not liked him as much in other books
Love story, beyond times
If you like Highlander stories, this is worth listening to.
Yes, the audio version gave me the time and imagination to absorb the story and the speakers voice enriched the story as it progressed.The speaker couldn't do the women's voices with perfection, however, with the speaker being a male it could hardly be expected. Still, the acting and annuncation was outstanding.
Kathleeen Woodiwess's, 'A Rose In the Winter' The auther spent plenty of time developing the sub charectors and the pov was excellent just like one of my favorite writers Kathleen Woodiwess. The book left me wanting more.
The inflection of passion to the dialog that is missed by merely reading the book.
I didn't want the story to end and felt a little sad to say good bye to the charectors.
Really good read...I am so tired of reading a romance written with the sole pov of the hero is lust and the story centers around the couples sex life. Even though this story had it's far share of sex scenes it didn't make me gag and say, 'Enough Already'. The author did a good job of capturing my interest in the Scottish scenery, strong dialog,and clever plot satisfied my opinion that this was indeed a good story.
