Publisher's Summary

A warrior of immortal powers....

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.

What the Critics Say

"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)

    "Interesting Story Falls Short"

    Having read and enjoyed Moning's ENTIRE Highlander series, I think it's fair to say that this one really left me wanting. Moning's spin on the time traveling modern woman into the medieval past in Book 3 starts off most innovative. Highlander's Touch (Book 3) and Kiss of the Highlander (Book 4) were the MOST creative of the series in terms of setting up the story. The first half of ...Touch crafted the romantic chemistry between the characters quite smoothly. That said, the last three or four chapters were weak at best. It was as if it's conclusion was propelled/forced by a publishing deadline. The description, language, and basis of the story's ending falls very short. However, Touch still should get four stars for the majority of the story is truly enjoyable.

    Gigante's performance was, as in the rest of the series, impeccable. Like other reviewers have mentioned, his interpretation for male characters in fabulous. It's clear that he does his best with female voices.

    "Speechless!"

    Wow! I cant make up my mind which one is better in the series now. The highlanders touch is especial though because in here, he not only worried about her, but he also did for her family. His love for her was so deep! I just loved it! And its prob one of those books that I will listen to again eventually. Just like BDB :)

    "Excellent book!"

    I just finished this book as I was exiting the interstate on my way home from work tonight! It sure makes the 45 minute commute each way a bit more interesting. This was a great story and the narrator is awesome, as usual. I'm now downloading book 4 in the series.
