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.

    Story
    "This is the second time listening to the book."
    Would you try another book from Karen Marie Moning and/or Phil Gigante?

    Maybe I'll try more of KMM's books, but it depends of the book. No so sure of Phil tho. I don't really like his female voices or his Scottish accents.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    It's not my story so I wouldn't change it. However, what detracted from the story was all the bickering between the 2 main characters. At a certain point it was just too much. All in all, it felt like a writer's first work or a piece that didn't go through enough drafts before publishing.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Phil's female voices were very hard to listen to. I rarely enjoy a man trying to do a woman's voice tho.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Some readers like the hero and heroine to have a strong antagonistic relationship before they get together and this gives it in spades. Also, there are those who like a romance that has a pregnancy with a strong protective male story line, that too is in this.


    Any additional comments?

    Many people read reviews for plot info. So here it goes. I was a little confused at the beginning because it gives background information and then we jumped forward, and forward again. We then have parents plotting to wed a 21 year old to one of 3 men that the father chose. Apparently Grimm and Jillian have past issues. We proceed in to hours of banter with private 'I love you' type thoughts with why 'I can't be with you' thoughts as well. After several hours of this it really starts to get on my nerves a bit. Grimm finally gives in to his feelings for a couple of days, while the other 2 men are sick and in bed, then, cowardly, talks himself into running away. J's parents return to announce that she will have to marry one of the other two men and post the bands. All the while, the parents are convinced that G will return to stop the wedding. Of course, as with all good romance novels, he charges in at the 11th hour and 59 min and 59 sec. to stop the 'I do's'. They then ride off to hide and she has morning sickness...so we have to stop at his place for awhile. While there, he confronts his past with his father.... Are you getting the picture of the plot? The reason I listened to this story a second time is that I forgot what the story was about. I read/listen to alot in this genre, so I rate a little harder than most. I give this a 2 star under the 'It was Okay' category. Was it a waste of time and credit? 50/50. Could the author have gone though more editing? Yes. Could they have found a better narrator for this story? Yes.
    I don't like to give bad reviews, but I count on reviews to determine what I will choose next. Sorry KMM. This just wasn't my cup of tea.

    Story
    "Nothing tame about this story"
    Where does To Tame a Highland Warrior rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    This book along with the others is the series are one of my favorites. Karen Marie Moning is such a wonderful writer, she brings you into the story and your hanging on for a ravenous ride, eating up every word along the way.


    What did you like best about this story?

    What did I like the best you ask? Jillian's determination to break Grimm's steely reserves. Karen' makes all her warrior's strong, delicious and stubborn and it takes a strong willed woman who is equally stubborn to break the barriers these men put up.


    What about Phil Gigante???s performance did you like?

    What can I say about Phil Gigante that if you have listened to him read, that you don't already know. He brings the story to life with his voice. He makes it believable with his spot on interpretation of the men and the women don't sound sappy when he reads them. Phil is a great performer and when his voice is behind the words, they seem to leap off the page.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The chemistry between the two characters is unbelievable. I was so frustrated with Grimm at tumes as well as with Jillian. I think that when they finally got together I had tears in my eyes.


    Any additional comments?

    If you want to read a romance that will keep you from wanting to put down the pages, then To Tame A Highlander is the perfect choice. Let it take you away to Scottland on the wings of Karen's writing and Phil's seductive and thoroughly entertaining voice. Let Mr. Gigantcowhide you away to Scotland in the 15th century and let him take you through the journey while Jillian entices him to take the leap and Tame the man she loves.

    "Wonderful, sexy narrator, very good story"

    I thought it couldn't get better than Beyond the Highland Mist, but To Tame a Highland Warrior took the adventure and romance to new heights.....its a wonderful bodice ripping story and the narrator, Phil Gigante is incredible and makes me shiver with his delightfully sexy scottish brogue! I loved his readings in the Fever Series as Jericho Barrons and the Sidhe males in the same series...

    "To Tame a Highland Warrior: Highlander, Book 2"

    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!

    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.

    "One of the best of the series"

    Along with Beyond Highland Mist and Immortal Highlander, this is one of the best of the series. Grim is a great hero and the love story is very rewarding.
