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 one was better than the first two books. The narrator for the men was fantastic. Not so great for the women, but not horrid. The story was fun and sexy. I felt the author did a good job of merging fantasy and reality. This is one I would definately recommend.
Historical romance junkie. Who doesn't love romance?
I have listened to this book 4 times and read it twice, it's so much fun to listen to.
The time traveling aspect is a big favorite of mine and the paired with Scottish history it's a win win.
If you haven't listened to Phil Gigante's narrating before your missing out. Paired with Ms. Moning's writing, this is a match made in historical romance heaven, his rich sensual voice is like a rich golden whiskey on a cold and frosty night warming you right down to your toes.
If you love Hunky Scottish hero's and sassy modern women then you will love this book.
I liked this story, I really did. The narrator did an excellent job "narrating" but every time he had the hero speak I kept thinking that at some point he learned to impersonate Sean Connery in Hunt for Red October and never got over it. Sean, I mean the hero, had his moments and some of it pretty hot, but how did he get stuck with the heroine who sounded like a female impersonator? She wasn't well drawn in the first place, they kept saying she was strong, but every time she opened her mouth, she sounded hysterical (oh, an in case you don't pick it up from the plot, she's worried about her mother...). The hero was made of stronger stuff than I at being willing to spend eternity with that one.
I liked the mythical characters in the last hour or so of the book which dwells heavily on them. I'm not usually interested in faeries, but the "bad" guy has potential for a book of his own.
I'd buy another book by this author, I just hesitate at making it an audible book due to the characters' voices. This otherwise would have been a 5 star review.
This is one of my favorite books of the Highlander series because of all the Scottish history background. The historical aspects serve as the perfect backdrop for Circen’s complex character. He is by far my favorite Moning Highlander. He shares very similar characteristics with Adam, Drustan, Daegus, and even Cian, as he and Cian are from the same century, but what I love about him most is that he is a perfect combination of all these magnificent characters. With a touch of Adam’s Fae Magic, Drustan’s sense of duty and loyalty, Daegus’ sultry sensuality, and Cian’s brawn and savagery he is the perfect highlander, and of course let’s not forget to mention intelligence. I have been listening to these books in reverse order, and so far I have loved every one. I started with Immortal, then Dark, then Kiss, then Spell, and now Touch. Now I plan to listen to Tame a Highland Warrior. I can’t wait ! You can’t go wrong with any of these books, believe me !
easy listening, suspenseful, charismatic, well conceived characters. reminds me of the fever series since there is some scottish magical lore, faeries, sifting. This is my favorite one from the Highlander series so far and i'm listening in sequence. It departs from the prior too as now there is time sifting and faeries and elves and such. Sounds silly even to say but thoroughly enjoyable. I like Phil Gigante's narration very much. Even his female voices are great! Highly recommend Highlander Book 3, especially if you listened to the Fever series and enjoyed it.
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...
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... :-(...
I'm one of the reviewers at the Guilty Indulgence Review Site. I am always reading - I don't go anywhere without an ebook or audiobook!
This book keeps with the vibe of the series which has such a strong plot line woven throughout. Then add to that, the voice of the narrator heats it up another level. During some of the steamier scenes, my toes absolutely curled in delight. Phil Gigante is the best.
Phil Gigante as the narrator is Awesome!! Scottish brogue is fantastic. He sounds like Sean Connery. The story will keep you enthrralled from beginning to end.
The entire Highlander series by Karen Marie Moning is brilliant!
The Lead character Circian Brody and Duncan are fantastic!
When Circian told Lisa to "Take"...goose bumps!
Just take and enjoy the book!
Reading is a must-have ESCAPE...
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.
