Publisher's Summary

"I am Dageus MacKeltar, a man with one good conscience and 13 bad ones, driven to sate my darkest desires...."

From his penthouse lair high above Manhattan, Dageus looks out over a glittering city that calls to the darkness within him. A 16th-century Scot trapped between worlds, he is fighting a losing battle with the 13 Druids who possess his soul, dooming him to an eternity of sexual pursuit.

When Chloe Zanders, student of antiquities, is drawn into his world, she finds the insatiable alpha male an irresistible lure. Before long, she is caught up in an ancient prophecy that will sweep her back in time to medieval Scotland. Plunged into a world of timeless magic and dark seduction, she will soon face the challenge of a lifetime: fighting 13 evil spirits for the heart of one irresistible man.

Great Scot! Don't miss our other titles in the Highlander series.

    "I love Dagus MacCelter!!"

    Of all the men of the Highlander series Dagus is by far the most sexy and sweet and good natured, after the ancients leave him but also before.

    "Great Story"

    This is, by far, my favorite of her books. The only problem I have with the performance was Chloe's voice. I was born and raised in Kansas and I've never heard a Kansan speak with the accent she had. It sounded more like a light version of Scarlett O'Hara in Gone With the Wind.

    "Joyful, uncomplicated, love story"

    This was a very easy read. Very nice story. It contained sex, but not so graphic and overly detailed that it was cheesy and cliched. The biggest cliche was the female lead's innocence. I laughed out loud a lot. It satisfied my brief romance novel fix. The narrator did a great job with the male voices and their accents. However, I was not fond of his female voice at at. This is why the performance received only three stars. Overall it was a satisfying read. It kept me entertained and engrossed enough that I finished it in two sittings. I *may* look into other books by this author if they have another narrator for the female voices.

    Story
    "Not the best in the series but still enjoyable"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I think this would have made more sense as the last book in the series.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    As with the entire series, it is fun to imagine these characters dealing with the reality of being in a place and time that is centuries apart from their own. The human implications of being immortal and of commanding magic for good or ill add another enjoyable layer.


    Which character – as performed by Phil Gigante – was your favorite?

    He does them all well. When you can recognize a favorite character from a previous story when they show up in the current story, you know your narrator is pretty remarkable. Thank you Mr. Gigante.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yep.


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to the next in the series.

    "Heart Breaking"
    Where does The Dark Highlander rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Of the series, this so far is my favorite one.<br/>I never compare apples and oranges. Different genres each have their own appeal.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Chloe. Cautious but fearless. She never expected what she got. She also was very joyful, which helped The Dark not be so dark.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Dageus and Chloe meet. Condom wrapper, condom wrapper, MAXIMUS condom wrapper!!!!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely and I did.


    Any additional comments?

    This whole series, is so well written, performed beautifully. I never had to wonder which character was talking except the twins, as they should but when the words came out, then I knew which twin it was.

    "An Emotional Rollercoaster"

    This is a fantastic book! It runs the full gambit of emotions. I laughed, cried, held my breath. Karen Marie Moning just keeps writing more sensationally with each book and transports us to the romantic magical highlands. Phil Gigante uses his magical voice with his sexy Scottish brogue to make us fall in love with the characters. I find it harder and harder to return from their world. I can't recommend this book highly enough. Be sure to read it!
