Publisher's Summary

A woman's tender touch....

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.

    GRIM!!!!!!!


    What does Phil Gigante bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    the brogue!!!!!!!

    "Narrator makes the story come to life"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    Have you listened to any of Phil Gigante’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    I have already downloaded the next book in the series. It will be fun to learn more about Grim.

    "Magic, Scotland and a Hunky Hero"

    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.

    "My-Oh-My!"

    This is one of the best of the series. Steamy scenes and good story. No whiney/helpless/stupid lead female character.

    Story
    "Not my kind of Highlander, I guess"

    This is the second Moning book I've tried and I've decided her stories just aren't for me.
    The characters take forever to make a decision -- one you KNOW their going to make. The back story seems to be late in adding to the mix -- and that's the only fun part of the book.
    The narrator's female voices had the same affect as fingernails on a blackboard. They were all high pitched, whiney, shrill, near hysterical and well, just annoying.
    I love stories about Highlanders but not the Moning /Gigante style.

    "Not so tame a wonderful tale!"

    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!

    Any additional comments?

    Narration - Phil Gigante - pretty good
    Phil does a good job, just doesn't do females that well. He's a guy trying to do a girls voice - a little too falsetto.

    I enjoyed the book. It's kind of light hearted with a little danger and angst thrown in.
