Publisher's Summary

With his long, black hair and dark, mesmerizing eyes, Adam Black is Trouble with a capital T. Immortal, arrogant, and intensely sensual, he is free to roam across time and continents in pursuit of his insatiable desires. That is, until a curse strips him of his immortality and makes him invisible, a cruel fate for so irresistible a man. With his very life at stake, Adam's only hope for survival is in the hands of the one woman who can actually see him.

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.

What the Critics Say

"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)

    "Best in the Series"

    This was the best book in the series! I have listened to all the books in this series and some of them twice. Intense adventure and heart pounding erotic love.

    "OMG!"

    What this narrator does to Adam Black's voice should come with a warning! I about went up in flames when Adam had his first conversation with Gabrielle! The storyline had lots of humor and the characters were likable enough. But it's the voice and the accent portrayed by Phil Gigante that really did it for me. He makes you want to gobble Adam up in hot, greedy bites. LOVED IT!

    "Best of the Series"

    Adam Black is a very good main character. The heroine, though somewhat week, is pretty decent and there is enough humor to see you through.

    I think that the narrator finally figured out female voices and Gabby didn't sound nearly as hysterical as some of the previous female characters and he has an excellent voice for the narrator's role. It seemed like some of the characters' accents weakend as the story progressed, but I've also read the book and it's actually the writing that changes the Scots burr for example, it's not written with that much of an accent. I was very happy that Adam had a better voice than in earlier books.

    Although, this series is very formulaic -- girl meets guy, guy needs girl to solve a problem, girl & guy fall in love, guy killed/taken away, girl & guy get back together, girl ends up pregnant, this book did it better than the rest of them and the epilogue was a nice touch.

    If you like the series, you won't be disappointed in this one.

    I spin my own wool and knit. Listening to audiobooks while I craft is one of my favorite things. I'm hooked.

    "Excellent audiobook, again"

    I've really enjoyed this whole series. No, these aren't books that require much thought. The plots are fairly formulaic, and the characters stereotypical, but despite all that, they are still just plain rollicking good fun. The dialogue is witty and the action is engaging. The men are alpha males to put it kindly (male chauvinist pigs if you're not so kind), but they ooze sex appeal. The steamy scenes are brilliant, although I'm not so sure that is Ms Moning's doing or that of the wonderful narrator, Phil Gigante. I've listened to several audio books where the sex scenes that sound ridiculous to the point of laughter, but never that from Mr. Gigante. His scenes sound just as they should, serious and steamy. He's fairly criticized for not doing justice to the female voices, but I didn't find that distracting, and he more than makes up for it with his wonderful sexy male characters. This particular story has a good plot, bringing a "bad guy" from previous books and making him shine as the hero in this one. There's a nice twist to his lady love that is interesting and fresh. All in all, a nice addition to a great series.

    "Hot!"

    I listen to this to fall asleep at night. No, don't misunderstand. It isn't boring. It's sexy and soothing simultaneously. Phil Gigante could read the dictionary and I would listen. Has he done that yet? Is it on Audible? Oh, but the review-right. This book is my favorite in KMM's sexy Highlander series. Finally a book about Adam Black, the mischeivous meddler who thinks he's "all that". He is. In this story his immortal self is humbled, abandoned and made -worst of all- human! What's a fallen god to do? How about stalk and pester the female lead- the only being who seems to be aware of his existence? The characters meet and grow together out of attraction and circumstance; their interactions and dialogue are intense & sensual, erotic at times. I'd label this "romantica". Not for the timid listener... or if you're a little timid, wear your headphones. It works for me.

    "I AM SO IN LOVE ADAM NOW!"

    Wow! I loved this book! It was a treat to have Adam, a fairy, as the main character instead of a highlander. Even though Adam was an evil troll in some of the previous books, you will fall head over hills in love with him during this book. The book was perfect from start to finish!

    Before listening to this audio, you should at least start at book 3. You won't understand the whole storyline, unless you listen to book 3, 4 & 5.
    After this book, if you plan to go on to book 7, I would advise against it. I was so entranced with this book, that I had to immediately start listening to the next. What a disappointment! Just embrace your fantasies of Adam, and be content to end this series there.

    "My ultimate favorite out of this series"
    Which character ??? as performed by Phil Gigante ??? was your favorite?

    When Phil narrates the character of Adam Black you want to be right there in the story with him. His sexy burr makes you sigh like a teenage girl in love. His witty banter and immense depth Makes each character a living breathing person. Even the females are done with great care and skill. Bravo Mr. Gigante.


    Any additional comments?

    This is my favorite book in this series. Each book can be read in any order but reading ths one last makes more sense. I loved the complex depth given to each character is this book. You can really love the hero's and hate the villians. The intense relationship between the main characters is believable and realistic which I think can be difficult to achieve in a fantasy romance sometimes, but Ms.Moning not only pulls it off, she does so beautifully. This book is one of just a few I love to keep coming back for. I wish she would write another series like ths one.

    "The Immortal Highlander, Book 6"

    I am a reader and a Librarian--Personally I find all of Karen Marie Monings books an escape that I look forward to reading. I fly through each book only wishing it wouldn't end. Her books have a balance of plot, character development, adventure, action, and sex to keep you interested and wanting more. Excellent!

    "Girl trouble"

    It looks like I'm one of the few people who didn't enjoy this book. I had trouble with it from the beginning, mostly because the narrator's depiction of the heroine was so dreadful. It disturbed me that his idea of a woman's voice was whiny hysteria and the fact that all of the important dialogue was partially delivered in a high pitched scream made it unpleasant for me to listen.
    I also thought the story of the invisible Highlander showing up at odd moments to seduce the heroine into returning him to his normal/immortal existence bled from cute to cutesy one time too many. Additionally, there was the now common problem of promising that the sex is going to be fabulous, contriving unconvincing and frustrating ways to delay it, and then making it very unspectacular when it finally happens. This, and the lack of suspense over the outcome, made it impossible for me to finish the book.

    Unless you really really enjoy Immortal Highlander stories, I'd think twice about this one.
