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)

    "Narration ruin the book!"

    I love highland books, and let me tell you, I have no idea what this book is about because I counldn't get pass the horrible narration. Narration can really kill a good book. The voice of Hawk was way too over done. I get Hawk was supposed to be this great and powerful guy, but really, using such a forced baratone voice over did it. Then all the women voices was like listening to a man make fun a woman. Like how boys pick on girls and taunt them in funny female voice. Yes, Narration killed this book. I bet the story was probably good, but I didn't even get into because the voices was sooo outlandish.

    Now, the story did manage to listen to was so confusing. First, why in the world would the MAGIC King bring a female from another century back in time just to punish Hawk. How would making him fall in love be a punishment? Second, there are too many kings! A mortal king that hates Hawk, plus the Magic King that hates Hawk too,... So confusing. Lastly, when the girl, I can't even remember her name, is brought back in time... Why is the King mean and mad to her. If she is suppose to replace his daughter, that he killed, shouldn't he be nice. I don't get it...

    It dosen't matter, the narration was so bad that I could never piece anything together. Please save your credit for something worth it. THis is not worth the credit.

    "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.

    I love to listen to audiobooks. It is great when the narrators get into the story and really bring the characters to life.

    "So in love with 'the Hawk'!!!"

    I loved this book and Phil Gigante has such a sexy voice. I can't believe anyone would not drool at his wonderful Scottish accent! I have listened to this book more than 10 times and I will no doubt listen to it again.

    "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.

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

    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.
