Publisher's Summary

A woman's tender touch....

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.

great story & narration. plenty of romance & steam

I love Phil Gigante and was bonkers about books 4 and 5 in Karen Moanings Highlander series. Ive read almost all of her Highlander books but somehow i skipped reading book 2 so i was delighted to listen to it with Gigante as the narrator. This installment was sexy, entertaining and FUNNY!!! its the only one that didn't mention the faeries but instead had bizzerkers. Such a silly name for a ruthless legendary warrior of bloodlust.

A very satisfying listen.

I was a little annoyed/put off by Grimm's early behavior toward Jillian, even though I understood the reason behind it.
The same goes for the broad lack of communication between the main characters. I wanted to shake them. But, I suppose that is the mark of a good story...to get the reader emotional about it.
Well done!

Excellent

Overall masterful piece. I loved the narration but I am biased against male narrators that depict female voices. But that's just me.

Grim and Jillian were Great!

As always KMM writes an excellent book of struggle, pain and ultimately the happiness only found when two people finally get their happily ever after. It's also nice to see the love a parent has for their children and the things we will do to see them happy.

This one could stand alone

So far, this one is my favourite. I'm not keen on the time traveling in the other two I've listened to so far. This one would be independent of the series and work very well.
This is so worth a listen if for nothing else than to hear the narrator give the Clergyman the voice from the priest in The Princess Bride film. I laughed out loud when I heard it! "Ma-wage" haha!!
Great book all around. I'm really enjoying the series even if I'm picky about the time travel in the others. This one doesn't have that element but it's still magical.

Epic Love Story!

This is the most beautiful and moving storytelling of a man coming to acceptance of himself, his heritage and his love for one woman. At the same time it reveals the love and frustration of the woman who is his true mate. Karen Marie Moning makes you feel every emotion from laughter to tears and everything in between. Phil Gigante transports into their world with his fantastic brogue and unique voices for each character. I highly recommend this book, you are sure to love it.
