Enchanted by a powerful spell, Highland laird Drustan MacKeltar slumbered for nearly five centuries hidden deep in a cave, until an unlikely savior awakened him. The enticing lass who dressed and spoke like no woman he'd ever known was from his distant future, where crumbled ruins were all that remained of his vanished world.

Damien Archer, earl of Grayson, and Lady Charlotte Lawson are opposite in every way. When their paths cross, they have every reason to turn in the opposite direction, and yet they cannot seem to avoid one another. Passions flare, putting them both at risk. They stand not only to lose their reputations, but more importantly, their hearts.

I loved this story. It is sweet and romantic. The wicked earl’s had me cracking up when they stayed out all night, then woke up to the noise in the attic. (Don’t want to give anything away.)
Damian is a strong, sexy, wild, wicked earl that I instantly loved. His struggle into letting go of his wicked ways and surrendering to everything inside his heart is most endearing. I truly loved this story and highly recommend it.
Narrator: I would like to encourage more emotion during the reading sections, when there aren’t any characters. That would be great.

This story is absolutely precious. Upon the introduction of the heroine Josephine, I felt like I was one of her friends rooting for her to have a grand love and a happily ever after. Josephine is such a likable character. Oh the hero made me melt. He is powerful, but gentle, kind and sweet. You will fall in love with him.
A good performance by narrator Anne Marie Damman. This is a very well written romantic story with all the right elements to capture your heart. I highly recommend this book.

I’ve listened to each book in this series in order and have loved every one of them. . Each story in this series is outstanding. Grimm’s story is no exception. I was hooked from the beginning through out the entire story, hanging on every word. Karen Marie Moning is a very gifted author. Book one in this series was the first book I listened to by this author. I instantly became a fan for life.
Phil G. has performed every story in this series with great emotion, tenderness, and humor. He has become one of my favorite narrators. Unfortunately in his performance of this audiobook, he performed some of the main female characters voices with a southern draw. Although previous stories had women with a southern accent in it, this story does not until the epilogue. Unfortunately there were multiple times Chloe spoke with a southern accent, instead of a Scottish accent. I wish all authors sent their books to an audiobook copy editor to listen and check each narrator’s performance of their audiobook. You may pm me for a recommendation of an ACE.)
Other than that, Phil was once again outstanding. Sadly for me, one who does check audiobooks, the wrong accent drove me a bit crazy until I forced myself to block it out and just fall into the story. And fall into it I did. This is a must have audiobook. The story is outstanding. Although I prefer to listen to books in a series in order, each book in this series is a great stand alone. I highly recommend this audiobook.

Weary of battle, he wishes only to find a woman he can wed who will approach him not with fear but with the tenderness that has been absent from his life for so long. Yet only the wisewoman seems invariably at ease in his presence.

This is an incredible story. This is my first story by Dianne Duvall and I am now a fan for life. A true love story that peels away at hidden secrets to find a love worth everything. One must take a leap of faith, be willing to be seen vulnerable and true, then and only then can one receive a love that conquers all. Beautiful!

This story is a well written historical romance, but there are several erotic scenes throughout the story. I loved the story line and the characters, but wow is it steamy and extremely detailed. Narrator Marian Hussey is fantastic. She made me believe in each character with her amazing performance of voices. I do recommend this book. I just want to share that it is quite steamy, deliciously so.
