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 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.
I love the "Outlander" series. This story was similar, but different in many ways. It was an enjoyable read.
The idea of being able to travel back to the past and the idea of true love.
When she comes back from the future.
I like the story OK--though not the best I've ever read.
I liked the parts where she is learning about her "Laird." The least interesting was the parts about the gardens etc.
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!
I'm only 85% finished with the book--sort of lost interest. Maybe it will pick up.
I would! If you like fictional romances, this one is a must read.
When Adrianne disappeared and reappeared talking with Hawk's mother.
The love scenes.
Adrienne leading his troops to battle.
this is my frist time listening to phil gigante. but i have to say i enjoy the book so much more because him. i a big fan now .
i enjoyed the whole book. it's hard to say just one moment.
i have to say i loved this book and can't wait to listen to the others . karen marie moning has just become a favorite author.
The plat seemed weak and the story moved s-l-ow.
As I typed earlier, I ound the plot to be weak
He did a great job.
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!
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.
That after all the twist and turns love won in the end,
When they were on horseback together and she realized that she did love him and gave her heart to him
This book is worth having and if you love it like I did buy all of them.
I'm a fantasy book hoarder!! :-) I am a mother of two small beautful childeren and my books are my way of getting away for a little break!!!
OH YES!! I LOVE THE WAY SHE WRITES. SHE IS UP THERE IN MY BOOK!!
100 % FANTASY IS THE ONLY WAY TO GO!! IT GETS ME AWAY FROM MY OWN WORLD FOR A LITTLE BIT!!!
IT IS VERY INTERESTING!! TIME TRAVEL IS AWESOME!!
I LKE THE NARRATOR! HE DOES A GREAT JOB!!
SHE IS A GREAT WRITER!! I STRONGLY RECOMMEND THIS SERIES!!
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.
