Enter law student Gabrielle O'Callaghan. For Gabrielle, cursed with the ability to see both worlds, Mortal and Faery, it is the beginning of a long, dangerous seduction. But as Adam's quest to regain his immortality plunges them into a world of timeless magic, the price of surrender could be their very lives. Unless they can thwart the conspiracy that threatens both Mortal and Faery realms...and give them a shot at a destiny few mortals ever know: glorious, wondrous, endless love.
Great Scot! Don't miss our other titles in the Highlander series.

"Moning excels at crafting sexy, brawny and brainy Scotsmen, and Adam Black in his Highland blacksmith glamour is one of the best. There's enough sexual tension here to fuel half a dozen normal romances." (The Contra Costa Times)
"Nonstop action for fans of paranormal romance: another lusty fantasy from Moning." (Kirkus)
I just wish there was more in the series and Adam Black is so hot it's hard to pick between him and Dageus MacKeltar, who love way too much for a fictional character.
This is the most awesome series I've ever listened to. I wish Ms. Moning would write many more just like it! No one does the Scottish highlander accent better than Phil Gigante!
Rabid Listener/Reader and Shopper!
Narration - Phil Gigante - Pretty Good.
Oh these just keep getting better! This book is about the sexy, ornery, Adam Black. It really does help to read/listen to these in order. :)
Adam is punished by the Fae Queen, stripped of his powers and forced to become/live with the "humans" Except he finds out they can't see him, touch him, talk to him and visa versa.
He's determined to find his son to get his help in getting back to the Queen, but no humans can see or hear him! He's in a real pickle. BUT WAIT! He runs into Gabby who is a - now I don't know how this is spelled, but the narrator has been pronouncing it - She-seer. She knows better than to look at "the Fae". Her whole life, she's been taught to pretend she can't see them. But she see's Adam except, he's different. His eyes aren't iridescent like a Fae's eyes should be and she looks just a little too long and get's busted by Adam.
She's scared because she's been taught the Fae will hunt her down and kill her, but Adam won't leave her alone! Then commences the wooing, and my but he's a good wooer.
So...my only problem with the premise of the book is...
(OK...now what's coming up is a spoiler, so if you haven't listened yet....stop right now!!! )
...the whole soul deal - if you're immortal...you don't need a soul. You're immortal!!! There's no need to have a soul that passes on into your next life because there is no next life...you're immortal!!! So needless to say, I thought they should have all stayed immortal and lived happily ever after - forever - it's hell getting old!
But that certainly wasn't enough to make me not love this book!
I loved it!
That is all!
Listening to books has changed my life! I now look forward (well, sort of) to my hour-long commute.
I love the Highlander Series! I am binge-listening. One more to go. Can't wait to find out what happens.
