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 normally don't write reviews but I depend on them so much when selecting books I wanted to help you guys out here. Many reviewers have claimed they could not get past the narrator's female voice. While most men cannot perfect the sound of a female's voice I feel that Phil Gigante did a more than acceptable job at it. The story itself was wonderful as well. I highly recommend this one!!
I have to admit that I had a bias because the narrator is male. My bias was completely unfounded. This book was amazing; great plot, good narrator. However unpractical, you will not be disappointed purchasing this book.
There's not one thing about this book I didn't like. I enjoyed the narrator, characters, and plot. I would have enjoyed it more if the final battle at the end had been expanded, but it was still a great book.
Phil Gigante reads it with all the ferocity that is befitting the Highland Warrior in this book. At first I was not sure I could enjoy a book like this with a man reading but his voices for these characters brings them to life. Phil I hope that you will continue to do these audio books for you have a talent that is only matched by Karen Marie Moning's talent for writing something as spell binding as this. Just a little history for my best friends reaction to this book she listened to the first half and went home and attacked her husband and he now wants her to listen to all of them. Karen you either have a great imagination or a superb lover I would like to have one of them my self the lover that is. Keep up the good work. Thanks Audible for allowing us to listen to these great stories at such a great price.
I've become a sucker for Audible. I love audiobooks, to the point of addiction. Especially a good romance audiobook... :)
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.
Phil Gigante is a GREAT narrator. The voices of the women didn't bother me at all. The story was touching and sexy and sometimes just plain hot! Reading it in the car caused me to drive with all my windows up though.
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
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.
Came across this series by accident when on sale, and really enjoy it. Not really into the whole paranormal thing usually, but do enjoy the supernatural, time travel, etc parts of these stories. Don't understand complaints about this narrator, he does a fabulous job. Unless you have a male and female narrator performing together, you are going to have a man doing female voices, or female doing male. Have listened to others by this narrator and think he is great. I will definitely keep getting the books in this series.
