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 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.
This book had a little bit of everything. Romance, mystery, murder, fantasy, everything you could want in a story line. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. Will definitely continue on with this series.
Phil Gigante does a great job making this book come to life. I went and got the second book after I finished this one.
Bantering between Hawk and Adrienne...
Adrienne - Smart and Sweet
Male take is Great - Females ah seem to sound the sameish
No not really - I like to take my time with this one
It is worth the buy - I've listened to the book TWICE! waiting for my next credit to buy the next in the series!
wife,mother, hard worker... and lover of romance and wit
Fun Read... Brave Heart meets Mid summers Night dream with time travel thrown in to spice it up (you might not think it would work but it did). this book was written some time a go (20yrs maybe?) but the story didn't feel too dated because well its mostly a historical.
the plot wasn't very deep but enjoyable...all in all a good way to spend an evening
Phil Gigante makes this audiobook so great!
The Scottish lore tied in with present day references.
Great writing! I love these characters. I am almost done with the series and haved loved all these books!
Tell us about yourself!
Possibly in a year or two.
The sexy hero, although Grimm becomes my favorite character later in the series.
Yes because I like this series but his female voices are terrible.
This book was a little weird and involved fantasy, fairies, time travel etc. I think these things are great but it's not for everyone.
If you like romance novels with steamy sex scenes and a an average plot, this is for you. Sort of junk for for the reader - enjoyable, but not high art.
A little bit. Things that you can skim over when reading a book you must sit through while listening to one.
I didn't so much have a favorite character, as an admiration for the performance as a whole. He read some of the most silly sex scenes with style. I admire him for that.
I can't imagine accepting so easily a trip back in time so drastic, even if I was from such a mysterious place as New Orleans. I liked Hawk, I hated the smithy and poor Adrienne was just a confused mess. Good sensual parts, none of the physical fighting I expected but mostly fighting of emotions, wants and needs. The book was entertaining though I probably won't go for the rest of the series.
Absolutely good listen. Phil Gigante is a wonderful narrator. I was totally immersed in the story and voice. I am getting the rest of the series as soon as possible.
