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'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 has such a strong plot, rich in the history this series creates. The voice of the narrator takes that story and heats it up to a whole other level. During some of the steamier scenes, my toes absolutely curled in delight. Phil Gigante is the best.
Book #1 doesn't hold a candle to Book #2 - I truly thought the book was fabulous - and I'm glad to see they got rid of the "tinny" spirit voices! Will be starting Book #3 - can't wait! It's the book you want to be TOTALLY alone with!!!
Laughed and a few other things...
I've listened to the whole series.
He does a fantastic job of performing all the different roles. He has a great voice.
Laugh. It was great.
Worth every penny!
I really liked Adriana's housekeeper and wonder what happened to her. She was definitely a side character, but a very loyal friend of Adriana's as well.
Oh, yes. I really love Phil Gigante's narrations in these books, as well as the ones with Mack in them. He also narrates some of the Carpathian novels by Christine Feehan. I was not disappointed.
I have already downloaded the next book in the series. It will be fun to learn more about Grim.
I wish I had started reading Ms. Moning's Highland series first but I started with her Fae series and then came back to this one, and am I glad I did.
Picture the smooth Scottish brogue of Sean Connery, add some magic, and then a time travelling hero/heroine. Picture being read to by Sean Connery, if that doesn't spike your heart, and make it race, then you must be on your last legs.
Phil Gigante SHINES as the narrator and has that same smooth as a glass of good Scotch
whiskey voice that just makes you want to listen forever.
I hope that Ms Moning is dreaming up some more Highland Warriors and a few more Fae for a new series!!! I'll listen for sure.
This is one of the best of the series. Steamy scenes and good story. No whiney/helpless/stupid lead female character.
this was so much fun to have on my eye pod while doing things around the house start with the first they build on one another although each one is good on its own have a fun read
As always KMM writes an excellent book of struggle, pain and ultimately the happiness only found when two people finally get their happily ever after. It's also nice to see the love a parent has for their children and the things we will do to see them happy.
So far, this one is my favourite. I'm not keen on the time traveling in the other two I've listened to so far. This one would be independent of the series and work very well.
This is so worth a listen if for nothing else than to hear the narrator give the Clergyman the voice from the priest in The Princess Bride film. I laughed out loud when I heard it! "Ma-wage" haha!!
Great book all around. I'm really enjoying the series even if I'm picky about the time travel in the others. This one doesn't have that element but it's still magical.
This is the most beautiful and moving storytelling of a man coming to acceptance of himself, his heritage and his love for one woman. At the same time it reveals the love and frustration of the woman who is his true mate. Karen Marie Moning makes you feel every emotion from laughter to tears and everything in between. Phil Gigante transports into their world with his fantastic brogue and unique voices for each character. I highly recommend this book, you are sure to love it.
