Publisher's Summary

When Kinley Chandler abruptly lands in medieval Scotland, there isn’t much she’s leaving behind. With her body shattered and her military career over, Kinley has resigned herself to death. But in the past, all that changes.

Lachlan McDonnel, the laird of a clan of immortal highlanders, can hardly believe his good fortune. Not only does the mysterious lass save his life, she awakens his heart in a way he’d thought no longer possible.

But the druid spells that allow Lachlan’s clan to live forever have a dark side as well. He and his men know all too well that the magic folk never give without taking. Though he is sworn to protect them from the dreaded undead, the price of his loyalty may finally be too high.

Lachlan is the first audiobook in the Immortal Highlander series. If you love brawny heroes, a mystical world, and a heroine with courage, then you’ll love this sizzling series. Join the romantic realm of the Immortal Highlanders by picking up this audiobook today.

Mature readers comfortable with dark themes only please.

Must Read Now!

I loved this story. The plot puts a new twist on time travel! The narration gives that extra flair to the books. This author did a great job with the details of her character builds. A job well done! I previously read Brennus by this author and come to love her style of writing. I will definitely be reading any more books I come across by this author. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Time travel, Scots, and zombies? Yes, please!

We are all accustomed to time travel books, zombie books, and even books set in historic Scotland with lairds and wenches. Getting all three with this listen made it sooooo much fun. Oh, and did I mention the Druids?

I loved everything about this listen. Laclan was an immortal Highlander. Kinley was a wounded warrior. When their worlds collided, wonderful things happened.

There were some steamy moments but they were incredibly tasteful. At one point Lachlan tells Kinley that he 'wanted his seed on her thighs every morning for the rest of their lives.' As written, it doesn't sound that sexy but put in the proper setting with that Scottish brogue and he became Jamie Fraser 2.0.

The narrator was the best. He was a perfect choice for this listen and the biggest reason why Lachlan and Kinley had so much depth.

The author merged a Highlander romance with time travel (nothing new there.) He mixed in some zombies and some druids, sprinkled in immortality (now that's new) and an incredible listen was born.

I should also note that both the author and narrator did a great job portraying Kinley's PTSD.

I'm looking forward to the next installment!

Refreshingly Different

I purchased the ebook of this story back when it was first released and thoroughly enjoyed becoming immersed in the book and when I saw that an audio version had been made I was really excited to be able to listen to it. That may seem strange but when I listen to a book, especially one as refreshingly different as this one, I normally get more from it the second time around I pick up little things I missed whilst reading it.

The storyline for this book was very different with Kinley Chandler being the main character, yes a woman has the lead. Kinley was a soldier and whilst serving in Afganistan she become so badly injured that no matter what was done to try to save her she was going to die from her injuries. In an attempt to help her state of mind she is taken out of the hospital by a well-meaning therapist to a local beauty spot in an attempt to lift her spirits. But Kinley doesn't want to live, she is in constant pain and knows her end is near so she tries to end her pain by plunging herself over the cliff when the therapist goes back to their vehicle to get her phone.

So the real adventure starts Kinley is taken back in time some 900 years and finds herself in a grove where a battle is taking place between what appear to be Roman soldiers and Highlanders. She is no longer injured or in pain, she is whole again! There she meets Lachlan, well when I say meets what I should say is she saves his life but in so doing she is rendered unconscious.

Lachlan is the leader of ClanMcDonnel but he's also an immortal, he takes Kinley back to their stronghold and after a period of time wins her trust. But how will a strong woman, a trained soldier fare in the past? Will they think her mad if she tells them she is from the future? The answer is she fares very well and she and Lachlan and the Clan together with a band of Druids try to overcome the Roman Soldiers who are in fact "the undead". Kinley's knowledge of search and rescue are put to good use too in this exciting tale.

There was so much going on in this book, which evoked many emotions in me, there is betrayal, devotion, loss, and love combined with the hottest chemistry between Lachlan and Kinley. The book is complete and can be read or listened to as a stand-alone but the ending does open a door for further stories which I can't wait to read/listen to.

I would like to add just how much I enjoyed the narration of this book, William MacLeod did a wonderful job of bringing every single character to life, imbuing each and every one with an individuality all their own.

I would love to tell you more about the plot but that would involve spoilers, which I just won't do. What I will say is that the author has written a story with a wonderfully different take on time travel, vampires and the like one I'm sure you will enjoy too if you are a fan of this genre.

I was given this audiobook as a gift and am voluntarily writing my review.

a little farfetched but lusty Highlanders!

the story line is a little wild with undead vampire Roman's and eternal life Highlanders but I still found the story captivating.

Lachlan

Didn't care much for this book . I was hoping it would get better as I read it only got more pornographic . Because of this it detracted from the story which I felt was good overall . If you like vampires and immortal Scots with lots of Hugh Hefner style reading , this is the book for you

Not what I expected

I made it to chapter 3 and stopped listening. I normally love Time Travel stories but I cannot get past the brutality of gutting a woman and eating her, as well as the use of the “F” word. So disappointed.

love those scotties

This is, hands down, one of the best time travel stories I've enjoyed in long time. Not only does it include alpha Highlanders (yum) but a strong female character, magic, and a touch of the paranormal. William MacLeod brought this story to life. He gave each character a voice of their own and Scottish accent is absolutely swoony!

Fantasy, highlanders, and a kickass heroine!

If you've never read a Hazel Hunter book, you're missing out. Her books are wonderfully romantic and amazingly magical. This is the first audiobook she's released, and the first of her Scottish highlanders series (the first one, she's working on a second now). William Macleod has a wonderful Scottish accent to bring this book to life. Don't get me wrong, it definitely sounds odd when he does Kinley's voice because his voice IS so deep, but he loses the accent like a professional so you can't miss who he's going for. Heads up to listeners/readers: this is NOT a time piece. It is a definite fantasy with immortals, druids, magic and time travel. Wonderful fun was had, but I know some people don't do fantasy. Now that's not to say I don't suggest giving it a shot, because you'd be missing out for sure! If you like strong heroines, Kinley definitely fits the bill. Loved her. Lachlan made a great lead, even in his abject confusion.

Wonderful

I loved this book. It's right up there with Karen Monning's Highlander Series! Very impressed with this writer, she has a way with telling a story. I can't wait to read the next book!

Interesting but dissappointing

A good basic story line and most of the time the story was good but then the author would let themselves down using illfitting vulgar words that left a bad taste ! Im not particularly inclined to read the next.

Amazing

I loved this! Well written, the characters were brilliant. The story was not formulaic but engaging. And William MacLeod's is the best I've heard. His voice is something else!!! Highly recommend.

Better than expected

At first I thought I wouldn’t like this but actually it was quite enjoyable. a harmless bit of fluff.
