Kiss of the Highlander: Highlander, Book 4

Publisher's Summary

A laird trapped between centuries...

Enchanted by a powerful spell, Highland laird Drustan MacKeltar slumbered for nearly five centuries hidden deep in a cave, until an unlikely savior awakened him. The enticing lass who dressed and spoke like no woman he'd ever known was from his distant future, where crumbled ruins were all that remained of his vanished world.

Drustan knew he had to return to his own century if he was to save his people from a terrible fate. And he needed the bewitching woman by his side.

A woman changed forever in his arms....

Gwen Cassidy had come to Scotland to shake up her humdrum life and, just maybe, meet a man. How could she have known that a tumble down a Highland ravine would send her plunging into an underground cavern - to land atop the most devastatingly seductive man she'd ever seen? Or that once he'd kissed her, he wouldn't let her go?

Bound to Drustan by a passion stronger than time, Gwen is swept back to 16th-century Scotland, where a treacherous enemy plots against them...and where a warrior with the power to change history will defy time itself for the woman he loves.

Great Scot! Don't miss our other titles in the Highlander series.

    "Great story with great humor!"
    What made the experience of listening to Kiss of the Highlander the most enjoyable?

    I love it when there is humor in a story and there was plenty in this one. The narrator made it even more humorous.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Kiss of the Highlander?

    When Drustan was locked in the garderobe & finally settled down to listen to Gwen.


    Which character – as performed by Phil Gigante – was your favorite?

    I really loved Gwen. She was so tenacious!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Silvan and Nell finally came together.


    Any additional comments?

    All of the books are good, but this one really entertained me and I know I'll be listening to it again. Phil Gigante is one of my favorite narrators and he made this book so enjoyable. You forget it is a man doing the parts of the females. I can't say enough about how much I enjoy his narrations!

    Story
    "Epitome of Romance!"
    If you could sum up Kiss of the Highlander in three words, what would they be?

    Romantic, magical, breathtaking


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Kiss of the Highlander?

    The ending was my favorite! Such a surprise and clever twist that made me actually clap my hands with glee.


    What does Phil Gigante bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love this man's voice! His intensive sexy Scottish brogue is so seductive. Everyone complains about his female voices, but I don't have a problem with it at all. He is a wonderful narrator and his accents are spot on.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! I have listened to 2 of the previous books in this series in the past 3 days... they are addictive!


    Any additional comments?

    I love Karen Marie Moning's incredible ability to immerse her readers in all of the details of her stories. This series just keeps getting better with each book. I am not usually a fan of romance genre, however the way these tales are weaved, I just can't get enough. I am starting book 5 this afternoon :)

    I am a middle aged woman with an open mind and many interests, my reading/listening moods change like my teen-age daughter changes her clothes.

    "Couldn't put it down!!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who would enjoy romance that has a happy ending and a generous helping of humor!


    What other book might you compare Kiss of the Highlander to and why?

    This book reminds me of A Knight in Shinning Armour by Jude Deveraux


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

    All the books in this series. He is so good that I forget it is one person reading all the parts.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I found myself laughing out loud throughout the book. The sad parts made me hold my breath just waiting to find out what would happen next. the story is filled with a plethora of emotions.


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to books 1 - 4 of the series and this is, by far my, favorite! It is a deliciously perfect blend of love, romance, humor, mystery and sensuality. Loved the story and the performance. There was something to like about all the characters, and I even felt really sorry for the "villain"! This story deserves a series all of its own!

    "Engaging Story with a twist ending"

    This was my first Karen Marie Moning novel and the first narrated by Phil Gigante. The story was very engaging and moved along at a quick pace. I read some of the reviews before purchasing the book and do not agree with the reviewers who did not like the narrator. Some said he doesn't do women's voices well. I do agree their different but still distinquishable from other female voices in the story. And I'm not sure it would even been notice but for reading that review first. I think the narrator does a fine job which definitely adds to overall enjoyment of the story. I liked it so much that I've purchased the other books in the Highlander series.

    Story
    "Entertaining Amorous Roller Coaster Ride"

    Within the first several chapters of the book, the reader will be brought to stitches. Time travel is most definitely a delicate element to weave into any story, but Moning does an incredible job of bridging centuries past and present. Every time the reader thinks they can anticipate where the story is going, it twists and turns into a whole other direction. All the while still, Moning manages to use modern romantic chemistry to draw us into the dynamic between Gwen & Drusdan.

    So incredibly entertaining. Gigante does an excellent job narrating. Won't disappoint. Fabulous story worthy of a blockbuster movie!

    "Hated for it to end!"
    Where does Kiss of the Highlander rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 3!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Kiss of the Highlander?

    The ending of course.


    Which character – as performed by Phil Gigante – was your favorite?

    Drustan.


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

    Love survives the test of time!


    Any additional comments?

    So far this is the BEST of the Highlander series. I've still got the last one to go, which by the reviews I've read, I think its going to be even better but I'm not sure how it could be! I'm looking forward to the last book of the series but am also sad that the series is ending.
