From his penthouse lair high above Manhattan, Dageus looks out over a glittering city that calls to the darkness within him. A 16th-century Scot trapped between worlds, he is fighting a losing battle with the 13 Druids who possess his soul, dooming him to an eternity of sexual pursuit.
When Chloe Zanders, student of antiquities, is drawn into his world, she finds the insatiable alpha male an irresistible lure. Before long, she is caught up in an ancient prophecy that will sweep her back in time to medieval Scotland. Plunged into a world of timeless magic and dark seduction, she will soon face the challenge of a lifetime: fighting 13 evil spirits for the heart of one irresistible man.

"This wild, imaginative romp takes readers on an exhilarating ride through time and space." (Publishers Weekly)
This series by Moning is really enjoyable. I was not sure I would like all the time travel, but it has been interesting. I feel like there is a bit of a disconnect between the first three in the series and the rest, but the rest are tied together very well. I can't decide if book 4 or 5 is my favorite-both great stories and fun to read. Actually I would highly recommend the whole series.
And the review would not be complete without commenting on Phil Gigante. He is an excellent narrator and I will be looking for his readings in the future!
Omg!!! They just keep getting better and better... I love the narrator brogue his fanatic. This story is fill of adventure, love, torment, happiness all thought not in that order. love all the characters in this book. So worth a credit or two. Download this book you won't regret it.
The writing was very well done. Characters were completely developed and the setting rich with details that captured the senses. While each book stands alone, reading the whole series gave each book greater depth. Truly an excellent series.

The narrator is excellent and does a great Scottish accent - in fact, he does several slightly different versions of it for Daegus, Durstan, and others through the story. And I like having a man narrator for Ms Moning's books because it adds something extra to the tone and overall depth. Her male characters are very much "men's men" so a woman narrator would ruin the mood entirely.
The Dark Highlander is one of my favorites from this author - Daegus is my kind of man and I like the way he thinks. The interactions between him and his conscience, his brothers, his father and Chloe are heartfelt and ring true. This is a man you can cheer for and get wrapped up in. The love scenes in the Dark Highlander are very steamy and start the book off with a bang. Fair warning....don't listen to this one with your Echo or a public Bluetooth speaker in mixed company. My one star deduction is for Chloe - she felt a bit like a weaker, less fun copy of Gwen from an earlier book in this series. Honestly, I didn't care for her much and I am really, really tired of the "heroine must be pure and untouched" trope in romances.
Rabid Listener/Reader and Shopper!
Narration - Phil Gigante - Pretty Good Great Highlanders but his females are too girly. Second listen 4/27/15 - This was so much better since I bought and listened to Kiss of the Highlander Another enjoyable book in this series. Lots of time travel in this one, with some more details being filled in on the Mystical family side of things. Will keep going with this series. Really enjoying!
One of my faves! I love Kiss of the Highlander and of course this was equally as good!
I would compare Kiss of the Highlander to it, they have overlapping story lines, so excellent!
