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)
Yes and no. Both versions are enjoyable.
Any of the Paula Quinn highlander series books. The story lines are captivating, engaging, dramatic, sexy, and laugh enducing.
Yes, and as always, Mr. Gigante delivers an excellent performance. He is one of my favorite male narraters.
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 enjoyed so much,this story, it did take a bit of time, maybe one chapter or two, before I really caught on, ,and could not stop listening. This being my first in the series, not realizing there were others,
I am craving for this story to continue, but I am not sure how this author writes and creates her series. I am very sure that any novel this author creates I will devour.
With the two main characters realize they have the unspoken connection.
This is my first book with this narator,
I am really hoping one of these novels continues this story in particular.
Normally in the series is always best to start with the first, but when choosing this book I chose it on the reviews and it had great reviews, it surely met my expectations.
The hard part now is to know which book I should choose next the first in the series or the one just after this I am sure I will read all.
My favorite books are 'Historical Romance'. A good book takes you away from your everyday life & puts you in the middle of an adventure.
One of the best stories I've ever listened to. Extremely captivating, passionate, beautifully written. Loved it so much.
I will listen to this story many more times. A must read.
