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.

"Highly original...sensual, hard-to-put-down romance. Karen Marie Moning is destined to make her mark on the genre." (Romantic Times)
"A hauntingly beautiful love story....Karen Marie Moning gives us an emotional masterpiece that you will want to take out and read again and again." (Rendezvous)
Just like the others in this series this book did not disappoint. Love that reachs through time and binds hearts forever. Great narrator
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!
I really liked this one, it was a change of view for me, and I was instantly entertained by the reader and stroy line; a bit long in the beginning but story kept me listening.
please.....make us come to happiness.....write more stories....ther are far too many of us who cant find this man
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.
Audio Addict! Usually listening to History these days. Love Will Durant most of all authors!
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.
I wish I hadn't bought two of these because I just can't get by the first couple hours of the first one. The writing is hackneyed, overblown, and repetitive. Some of the language seems too modern to be from an era as long ago as this supposedly was. The characters do not engage the reader/listener enough to care what happens to them or in the story. I found myself drifting away and when I started listening again found I hadn't missed anything. Not a good sign! The narrator did his best with this unengaging story, but his attempt at a Scottish accent fell short of anything I've heard in all the parts of Scotland I've visited. Suggestion to Audible--use British readers for books set in the British Isles--please.
On a positive note, this is the first of many books I've purchased from Audible that I have not enjoyed a great deal.
I'm new to this genre and I really enjoy this series of books. The artist has a wonderful voice. While I was a bit unnerved at first, I've come to really enjoy his vocal depth.
I liked the first book in this series, but this one was painful to listen to because of the story. It had great potential with the general idea, but the execution was lame. The narrator was good, he just didn't have adequate material to work with.
