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.

A reviewer at Guilty Indulgence Review Site. I don't go anywhere without a book -ebook or audiobook- and I always have an opinion to share.
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
I was a little annoyed/put off by Grimm's early behavior toward Jillian, even though I understood the reason behind it.
The same goes for the broad lack of communication between the main characters. I wanted to shake them. But, I suppose that is the mark of a good story...to get the reader emotional about it.
The perfect book for me contains some suspense, some humor and some steam.
I love this series so far. The stories are unique in their own right and the narration is absolutely perfect.
