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)
Mom, cupcake froster at local gourmet shop, and avid listener to books while doing said frosting or housework. True audiobook addict!
After listening to this book I fell in love with the series and devoured each one! I'm a big fan of historical fiction and especially anything dealing with the Irish or Scots.
Her plots are predictable, but honestly, I listen to this fluff because it is far from reality and it's entertaining. It never left me bored, that's for sure! And it made me want to know more about the characters and find out what would happen to them next.
Phil Gigante is an awesome reader! He has an amazing Scottish lilt - honestly I think his voice could melt butter LOL
Love the first of this series. I especially enjoyed the narrator. He captures the essences of the book and makes you feels as though you are there. He carries an incrediable sexy voice and I am amazed that such a sexy male voice can also carry off a female. I can't wait to hear the rest of the series and hope he is the narrator for all.
One of the best audio books I have listened to so far. I am looking forward to listening and buying other books written by this author. The audio kept you listening and wanting more.
I have just finished the last of the latest Highlander books, and I must say that KMM is an amazing story teller. I enjoy the science, the history, the Myths, and especially the romance! Never thought of myself as a Romance fan, but Karen has got me HOOKED! I strongly recomend ALL 7 and then, the Fae Series!
I thought with just one narrator, this book would be a bit weaker than the others, but I was wrong. This author's ability to build the mystery one brick at a time, until you really just want to read the last page first, holds steady in all of her novels and this one is no different. Very romantic, but still most strongly a mystery. Before you start make sure you have plenty of time because you will not want to be interrupted in the middle. I recommend this to any of KMM's fans. If you are not a fan, read this one and you will become one.
I love to read anything and everything! Audio is perfect in my car or earphones. I'd rather read than just about anything else.
Oh yes! It was a fun story and Phil Gigante is fabulous!
It's my first Karen Marie Moning book... Loved the whole time travel story.
This is my first Phil Gigante performance. And what a performance he did!! He is amazing! I quite think I'm in love with his voice.... Sigh~ I have already ordered the rest of the series. His character definition was great... No two sounded alike. And his brogue.... Yeah... I could eat him up! He truly made the story..it did not sound read and was fluid. He did a great job on the faerie voices when speaking to the mortals. I couldn't turn this story off- even for sleep!
Well, Hawk was so desperate for her and she just held out soooo long...I'm not sure how she could but his torment was sad. For a guy who was used to getting what he wanted, He had to fight for this girl and her past with everything in him. Knew there would be a nice resolution but it was hard to see them both so miserable.
Great, fun story! Can't wait to start the next one! So glad Phil Gigante is performing the series! Marvelous acting!
Im a busy Mama, always on the go! Lover of historical fiction and Sci fi horror.
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!!
The narrator does a great job of reading this novel and keeping the listener focused on the story and feeling the emotion presented.

No for Karen - The story was interesting, but took too long to get through. I am not sure what kept me listening, as I was ready to quit about 1/4 through. The story line was truly predictable. The characters were good, but the conflict took too long and after a while I was listening just to be sure that what I knew would be the ending was truly going to be the ending - and it was.
Yes for Phil Gigante - I do not recommend it except for the man reading it - he was awesome and his accents and pace were probably why I kept reading.
How long the story took to tell and the fact that the conflict between the main characters went on much longer than it would in real life, or any other kind of fairy tale. It was predictable.
His accents were marvelous and I really enjoyed his pacing and tones for the characters. I think I kept listening just because of his telling the story.
