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)

    "Disappointed"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No! I thought it was about a woman traveling thru time but it really about a love affair stepped in nothing but low quality adjectives with repeative comments! Very disappointed. This is for a love starved and unrealistic person with a wild need to be entertained with dripple


    What could Karen Marie Moning have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    quite repeating herself with descriptive words


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    no

    "Soft Porn with Poor Writing"

    If you are interested in this genre, then read The Outlander series by Diana G. These books were a cheap thrill with poor writing. Not impressed at all.

    I can now do my work and listen too. Hearing a professional reader is the best--great way to pass time.

    "Beyond the Highland Mist"

    I am a reader and a Librarian--Personally I find all of Karen Marie Monings books an escape that I look forward to reading. I fly through each book only wishing it wouldn't end. Her books have a balance of plot, character development, adventure, action, and sex to keep you interested and wanting more. Excellent!

    "Hooked"

    I am a fan of Johanna Lindsey romance novels. Although this had a tad more crude sex then I like, I am hooked, I will be reading through the whole series!

    "Light, Entertaining & Silly"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If you are looking for light reading with no basis in historical fact, this is a really fun read.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Beyond the Highland Mist?

    The premise for time travel is fresh; I really like the characters in the fairy court.


    Have you listened to any of Phil Gigante’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    First time- the voice is clear and pleasant.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Arrogant overlord meets his match

    "never again"

    I'm at a loss as to how this writer could ever be compared to Diana Gabaldon. There is no comparison, I'm at a complete loss as to how this book ever got published. It is juvenile and extremely frustrating to listen to as the narrator is very annoying.
    The story line is quite pathetic especially the "love" story it tries portray as there is nothing in it that has any ring of truth to it. It's a work of fiction to the extreme but in every book you want to feel that the love story the author touches upon is at the very least fesible somewhere. I found everything in this book to be unbelievabe on every level. Sorry I wasted my money.

    "Not what I expected"

    This book was not what I expected at all from this author. I've read the authors Fever series and loved it. I thought this series would be written as well as that series but not even close. It's like it's not from the same author at all. This book sucks. It has fairies in it but it might as well not since there is very little of them in it. I expected magic like the fever series has but this book has nothing. It a major disappointment.

    The narrator was not that great either. He had trouble keeping the accents going. It was annoying.

    "Hello!!"

    Ok this book was recommended to me because I love the Outlander series, and it doesn't hold a candle. That said, this book was fun to say the least. If you're looking for substance go elsewhere, but if you like a steamy romance you won't be dissapointed. yummy!!

    "Enjoyable Romp in Scotland!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Maybe, this kind of story is my private and guilty pleasure. The story doesn't compare to the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. It's a similar concept, but not a well crafted.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Beyond the Highland Mist?

    When Hawk and Adrain FINALLY get it together!


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Phil Gigante?

    I will most likely work my way through the series, however I really don't enjoy this guy's female voices. They really bug the hell out of me - they sound whiny!! So I had to work really hard on suspending my sense of disbelief - which is what fiction is all about, right?

    He has a great voice for the male characters, but he just can't pull off the women - which is a disappointment. The romantic/sexual scenes were quite enjoyable - nice to hear a man talking sexy:-)
