Publisher's Summary

An alluring laird....

He was known throughout the kingdom as Hawk, legendary predator of the battlefield and the boudoir. No woman could refuse his touch, but no woman ever stirred his heart - until a vengeful fairy tumbled Adrienne de Simone out of modern-day Seattle and into medieval Scotland.

Captive in a century not her own, entirely too bold, too outspoken, she was an irresistible challenge to the 16th-century rogue. Coerced into a marriage with Hawk, Adrienne vowed to keep him at arm's length - but his sweet seduction played havoc with her resolve.

A prisoner in time....

She had a perfect "no" on her perfect lips for the notorious laird, but Hawk swore she would whisper his name with desire, begging for the passion he longed to ignite within her. Not even the barriers of time and space would keep him from winning her love. Despite her uncertainty about following the promptings of her own passionate heart, Adrienne's reservations were no match for Hawk's determination to keep her by his side.

What the critics say

"Phil Gigante's handling of the prose in Moning's clever paranormal romance is smooth and engaging, but it is his character voicings that truly make this recording one to remember." (AudioFile)

Waste of time!

This is very amateur story telling - way too predictable and bordering on cheesy. The narration was terrible as all the female voices were Exaggerated in a poor imitationThat made them all sound like bimbos! If you want to read a good time travel novel stick with the Highlander series and forget this piece of drivel. Don’t waste your time!

Author always delivers

narrator kinda turned me off with how whiny he made Adrienne sound.

I was a few chapters in when I realized I had read this book. n by the end of this audio I heartily disliked Adrienne which I had not when I read the book.

Karen Marie's female characters have always tended to be on the strong side and innocent does not mean whiny

Captivating story

I read this long ago but enjoyed the audio version. The narrator was excellent at the men’s voices but I found he sounded whiny and almost like an air head for the female voices. Women don’t talk like that and he didn’t have to either.
Great story however. Worth a listen. I couldn’t turn it off.

Great book! Reader has a great accent

Although I found his high pitch female voice to be hilarious. Didn't take away from the story however.

Bad story, terrific narration!

It's a silly, typical bodice ripper, badly written - laughable actually - with EXCELLENT narration and production value! Phil Gigante talking in Scottish brogue is amazing! Pity about the actual STORY! LOL

I'm so in love and I'm SO moving to Scotland!

This is great. Morning doesn't keep the angst going too long like she does in fever. This is a fantastic story. Already having read Fever series, I am thrilled by the mention of the Fae, and the King! And Adam...
Wishing on a star for Hawk. Take me to 16th century any day, I'm from new Orleans!

:) love this book. Not disappointed. I can see why fans who read these first would have trouble getting used to Fever. But we all get addicted in the end....

I' was so addicted to JZB from Fever, I had last book depression... Highlander has made me forget the dear beast, and I'm all about a man in a kilt!!!

As for anyone writing bad things on the narrator, I do not understand! Phil Gigante is the voice of gods. He is so shockingly good in last two fever books, I am sorry he didn't read it all.
This is his first romance novel. Give him a chance!! This man is Jericho Barrons for godsake. ;)

it was OK but not great

I got this one on sale so I have to say it was worth what I paid....which wasn't much. I really did like a lot of this book but the whole fairy aspect didn't work for me. The way the fairy manipulates the fate of the lead characters is annoying and a bit strange. The narrator (who is one of my favorite narrators) falls short with this one. Most of his voices were good....some were just plain weird.

I liked the story enough to listen to the second book in the series if it goes on sale. I hope the rest of the series is better because I love highlander stories. 😀

If you loved Gabaldon's Outlander... skip this.

I wanted to like this book, as I have loved Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series (and have reread them over and over) But, this was such a ridiclous book. Over the top corny, predicable cheap thrill romance. I was hugely diapponited.

Loved It!!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, which probably means I'm a hopeless romantic. Well so be it, there are worse things. I didn't find the book as predictable as others and loved the ending. Were the characters complex, not really, but they weren't one dimensional either. The author could have improved the motivational fear of the heorine better, and in the end had the hero be a bit more agonized for the right reasons, but she played with male insecurity and ego extremely well. Overall, I would recommend the book and I'm purchasing the next in the series hoping its as good as this one.

Meh...

I wasn't digging the narrator too much (he sounded too much like A Christmas Story narrator) so it was hard for me to get over that. Plus, doing the woman's voices was just awkward.

In regards to the storyline, the time travel aspect of this book is a bit silly. Just my opinion.

Cheap Thrills

Fun in concept, but only moderate in delivery. Personally I like a little less explicit disclosure and more subtlety in my romances. Every kiss seems to be a battle of the wills between the love (or sex or power) -starved. Plot offers promising twists and layers but the reader's breathless urgency mixed with the every-touch-a-love scene got old. If you are looking for an ongoing romp between the legs without much intellect, it is quite fun. And don't be lured by the "highlander" motif -- it is a setting, a premise for fairy manipulations of human fates. Gives the author little more than the chance to titilate the reader with worn out bawdy references to what men have under kilts. Depends on what you are looking for, but I think I will pass on the sequels.

Not the best of the series, but more-than-decent.

While this isn't the best of Moning's Highlander series, it's a more-than-decent start.I've certainly found Moning to be the best of the Highlander genre.

Boring

I had hoped there would be a great story line that went with this romance, however, most of this was the he wants her, she wants him but won't say so, back and forth. There was no mystery, no intrigue, it was boring. Even the so called romance was boring. I listened because I paid for it. I can't say anything about her other series, but this one is not worth it.
