He was a mighty Scottish warrior who lived in a world bound by ancient laws and timeless magic. But no immortal powers could prepare the laird of Castle Brodie for the lovely accursed lass who stood before him. A terrible trick of fate had sent her 700 years back in time and into his private chamber to tempt him with her beauty - and seduce him with a desire he could never fulfill. For this woman he burned to possess was also the woman he had foresworn to destroy.
A woman caught in the mists of time....
When Lisa felt the earth move under her feet, the fiercely independent 21st-century woman never dreamed she was falling...into another century. But the powerful, naked warrior who stood glaring down at her was only too real...and too dangerously arousing.
Irresistibly handsome he might be, but Lisa had no intention of remaining in this savage land torn by treachery and war. How could she know that her seductive captor had other plans for her...plans that would save her from a tragic fate? Or that this man who had long ago forsaken love would defy time itself to claim her for his own?
Great Scot! Don't miss our other titles in the Highlander series.

"Phil Gigante's smooth and sexy Scots brogue is so well done that listeners may think Sean Connery himself is delivering this time-travel tale." (AudioFile)
This book was, well.... painful. I fell asleep three times during the course of it. The story was not as endearing as the 1st book and not as interesting as the 2nd book. But, yes, I will continue the series as I am invested now.. I am hoping the next book is better... :-(...
This was my first experience with the Highlander Series and with Karen Marie Moning.
The author is a good story teller, but was shocked by the detail in the love scenes. Makes me nervous to find out what books are listed in the "Erotica & Sexuality" section... Certainly should be listed under the romance genre... Despite the R rated scenes, I still enjoyed the love story and even downloaded the next in the series, which I would give the same review to.
The reader did an okay job. I agree with other reviewers that his interpretation of female voices is extremely terrible and can be distracting, however he does a great job on the narration and the male voices. Once past the first hour, I got used to it and it didn't bother me much.
I would recommend to my girlfriends as a great steamy escape, however would never admit to reading these books to any of my guy friends in a million years. I'd probably listen to it again in the far future...
The story was alright, but the female character comes across so whiny. The narrator did not help. His female voice pulls you right out of the story.
The story had lots of gaps in bringing the fantasy world to fully believable life. The male narrator's attempt at all the female voices was horrible. This includes how he did the heroine which made me start to dislike her just because of his grating falsetto. This was a disappointment.
would like to think i would like the book better if i read it myself, but honestly i will never be able to get the narrators voice out of my head. He was fine as the guy even though i found his accent inconsistent (sometimes he sounded more deep south than Scottish.) But when he read the female character's parts, it was just plain bad. Dont waste your credits. I thought the others were exagerating- they werent. It is that bad.
I don't want to give it away but, I will assure you that there are quite a few areas in this audiobook that will make you say WOW, and propel you to continue with the rest of the quite entertaining story.
Rabid Listener/Reader and Shopper!
Narration - Phil Gigante - Pretty Good
He reads flawlessly, does great Highland Men, but his women are falsetto - just sounds too much like a guy trying to overly dramatize a woman's voice.
Really enjoying this series, but I love me some Highlanders.
There are time travel elements in each book, however, as I listen to more of the series, I see that the highlanders are all related, not really directly, but in more indirect ways, so I like that tie-in. They are also getting better, the farther I get into the series. I do not own all of these, so at this point, am listening to the ones that I've gotten through specials via Audible. At some point, I'm certain I will get them all.
