He was born to a clan of warriors of supernatural strength, but Gavrael McIllioch abandoned his name and his Highland castle, determined to escape the dark fate of his ancestors. Hiding his identity from the relentless rival clan that hunted him, he called himself Grimm to protect the people he cared for, vowing never to acknowledge his love for ravishing Jillian St. Clair.
Yet even from afar he watched over her, and when her father sent an urgent summons, "Come for Jillian," he raced to her side - into a competition to win her hand in marriage.
A warrior's steely heart....
Why had he run from her so many years before? And why return now to see her offered as a prize in her father's manipulative game? Furious, Jillian vowed never to wed. But Grimm was the man she loved, the one who urged her to marry another. He tried to pretend indifference as she tempted him, but he could not deny the fierce desires that compelled him to abduct her from the altar. She was the only woman who could tame the beast that raged within him - even as deadly enemies plotted to destroy them both.
Great Scot! Don't miss our other titles in the Highlander series.

I normally don't write reviews but I depend on them so much when selecting books I wanted to help you guys out here. Many reviewers have claimed they could not get past the narrator's female voice. While most men cannot perfect the sound of a female's voice I feel that Phil Gigante did a more than acceptable job at it. The story itself was wonderful as well. I highly recommend this one!!
I have to admit that I had a bias because the narrator is male. My bias was completely unfounded. This book was amazing; great plot, good narrator. However unpractical, you will not be disappointed purchasing this book.
There's not one thing about this book I didn't like. I enjoyed the narrator, characters, and plot. I would have enjoyed it more if the final battle at the end had been expanded, but it was still a great book.
Phil Gigante is a GREAT narrator. The voices of the women didn't bother me at all. The story was touching and sexy and sometimes just plain hot! Reading it in the car caused me to drive with all my windows up though.
Not her best work. Narration was good, but the rest was a dud. Pick one of her other books, and you'll be much happier. It was just all wrong, boring and above all eye-rolling annoying. Every other book by this author, and I've read many, was good. Pick another.
Came across this series by accident when on sale, and really enjoy it. Not really into the whole paranormal thing usually, but do enjoy the supernatural, time travel, etc parts of these stories. Don't understand complaints about this narrator, he does a fabulous job. Unless you have a male and female narrator performing together, you are going to have a man doing female voices, or female doing male. Have listened to others by this narrator and think he is great. I will definitely keep getting the books in this series.
Phil Gigante reads it with all the ferocity that is befitting the Highland Warrior in this book. At first I was not sure I could enjoy a book like this with a man reading but his voices for these characters brings them to life. Phil I hope that you will continue to do these audio books for you have a talent that is only matched by Karen Marie Moning's talent for writing something as spell binding as this. Just a little history for my best friends reaction to this book she listened to the first half and went home and attacked her husband and he now wants her to listen to all of them. Karen you either have a great imagination or a superb lover I would like to have one of them my self the lover that is. Keep up the good work. Thanks Audible for allowing us to listen to these great stories at such a great price.
Both are great it's just really nice to have then on Audio so can listen in the car or put ur ear plugs in an go to sleep listening
Kresley Cole and Lynn Viehl
the telling of the store was great and sometimes it's just nice hear some one else tell the story other then reading
oh know and i love that about most longer audio
great book great listening
My tastes vary. I like PNR and some HR. I have been known to like YA and NA just as well as some naughty bodice rippers and other romance books.
The voice. OMG It was the best. I have listened to many audio books and no matter how great the story is, if the narration is crap --- it can ruin a story.
GRIMM -- Because how can you resist such a sexy man? Followed 2nd by his uncle.
l adore this series by Karen Marie Morning. It was my introduction to Scottish Historical Romance and as much of an addict that I am I have yet to find any series to compare. I think this is my 3rd or 4th time listening to it and it is still as exciting and satisfying as it was the first time.
Karen Marie Moning has again seamlessly woven paranormal romance and historical romance into a story with a intricate weave and a strong colorful weft. There is not a thread out of place in this tale of love, legend, humor, mystery, magic and mayhem. Every character is so well developed that it's as if you know them personally (Which could be scary at times) and well. They are colorful, interesting, and damn entertaining! The plot is a masterpiece and each storyline another thread that weaves this incredible tale. The legend of the Berserkers and the medieval setting lend the polish to this shining example of Historical HEA Romance books.
NARRATOR: Phil Gigante gives a near perfect performance. Occasionally he drops a voice for a few words that is corrected in a flash but still causes just a split second of confusion. His female voices can seem less than feminine but not consistently. Overall he is a truly great performer irregardless of those minor imperfections. His Warm sexy voice and delicous Scottish burr make listening to him a real treat.
CREDITWORTHY? Yes, yes, yes....
HEAT FACTOR: A whole lot of Chemistry, a whole lot of talk, and some real steam too!
