Cancel anytime. With his long, black hair and dark, mesmerizing eyes, Adam Black is Trouble with a capital T. Immortal, arrogant, and intensely sensual, he is free to roam across time and continents in pursuit of his insatiable desires. That is, until a curse strips him of his immortality and makes him invisible, a cruel fate for so irresistible a man.
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. 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. This is Moning at her romantic, funniest finest. Caught in a deadly game between the light and dark courts of the Fae, Jane must find a way through the ice to the heart of her Highander.
But will the love of one mortal woman be enough to defeat such ancient and ruthless immortal enemies? He was a mighty Scottish warrior who lived in a world bound by ancient laws and timeless magic.
But no immortal powers could prepare the laird of Castle Brodie for the lovely accursed lass who stood before him. A terrible trick of fate had sent her years back in time and into his private chamber to tempt him with her beauty. 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.
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.
He has stolen her past, but MacKayla will never allow her sister's murderer to take her future. Yet even the uniquely gifted sidhe-seer is no match for the Lord Master, who has unleashed an insatiable sexual craving that consumes Mac's every thought - and thrusts her into the seductive realm of two very dangerous men, both of whom she desires but dares not trust.
MacKayla Lane's ordinary life underwent a complete makeover when she landed on Ireland's shores and was plunged into a world of deadly sorcery and ancient secrets. In her fight to stay alive, Mac must find the Sinsar Dubh - a million-year-old book of the blackest magic imaginable, which holds the key to power over both the world of the Fae and of Man. MacKayla Lane was just a child when she and her sister, Alina, were given up for adoption and banished from Ireland forever. But after discovering that she descends from a bloodline both gifted and cursed, Mac is plunged into a secret history: an ancient conflict between humans and immortals who have lived concealed among us for thousands of years.
On a quest to find her sister's killer, Mac is a major player in a deadly game, but with one great advantage: she knows how to find the Sinsar Dubh, an ancient book of magic so dark it corrupts anyone who touches it. What Mac soon discovers is worse than she had imagined. Surrounded by treachery, her enemies indistinguishable from her allies, she can be certain of only one thing: as All Hallows' Eve approaches, her time is running out.
Possessing rare talents and the all-powerful Sword of Light, Dani is more than equipped for the task. But now, amid the pandemonium, her greatest gifts have turned into serious liabilities. MacKayla Lane and Jericho Barrons return in the epic conclusion to the pulse-pounding Fever series, where a world thrown into chaos grows more treacherous at every turn. MacKayla Lane's life is good. She has great friends, a decent job, and a car that breaks down only every other week or so.
In other words, she's your perfectly ordinary 21st-century woman. Or so she thinks Burned picks up right where the surprising conclusion of Iced left off, and will feature beloved characters Mac and Dani O'Malley as they embark on another high-octane adventure in the Fever world. When the immortal Fae destroyed the ancient wall dividing the worlds of Man and Faery, the very fabric of the universe was damaged, and now Earth is vanishing bit by bit.
Only the long-lost Song of Making - a haunting, dangerous melody that is the source of life itself - can save the planet. Immortal Faerie and ancient feuds, secrets and sacrifices - a thrilling new chapter in the bestselling Fever series begins, featuring Dani, Ryodan, and other beloved characters, as they battle to save Dublin from the rising of a terrifying evil determined to enslave the human race. The brewing war between the Seelie and the Unseelie is threatening to explode - with a definitive outcome that will change the fate of the Fae forever and thrust humanity into either light or total darkness.
But as Mac embarks deeper than ever before into the origins of the Fae, she begins to question who is truly good and who is evil. But when a split-second decision saves her from a terrifying attempt on her life, Jessi suddenly finds herself confronting six-and-a-half feet of smoldering, insatiable alpha male.
And when the Dark Glass is stolen, an ancient enemy will stop at nothing to reclaim it. For Jessi, the sex god in the mirror is not only tantalizingly real, he's offering his protection - from exactly what, Jessi doesn't know.
And all he wants in exchange is the exquisite pleasure of sharing her bed. Phil Gigante's eargasmic performances of all the books in the Highlanders series are the perfect mating of story and storyteller and I can't imagine merely reading these stories from a printed page ever again.
While no one will ever mistake Phil's voice for a woman's, I quickly was no longer conscious that a man was voicing the female characters. He uses a higher pitched voice for women, but there's something else there too Now the men's voices?
I'm pretty sure that the scenes where they are all together should carry embedded warnings, "Warning: the following scenes carry serious risk of Death by Eargasm"! Drustan's voice is my favorite- Gigante uses a deep growling brogue imbued with Drustan's complete confidence in himself. Dageus' Scottish brogue by way of Liverpool reflects his mischievous, "Hail fellow, well met" personality- when he isn't possessed by a baker's dozen of ancient evil Druids, of course. Phil gives Adam both a sidhe and a human voice that never quite loses his seductive sidhe arrogance.
Cian's sexy brogue contains an underlying anger and iciness which, considering he's been trapped in a mirror for hundreds of years, seems more than appropriate, but gradually one can detect a subtle thawing and underlying warmth. In addition to bringing the main characters alive, Phil G. Whether voicing an old woman, one of the villains, or even a child, Phil plays his voice like the fine instrument it is to make every character distinctive and believable.
He also adds special effects that bring the story to life-- wait till you hear his effect for Druid "Voice"! Those entertaining extra touches are why Phil Gigante's performances are not to be missed! Don't miss this audiobook! I have listened to all 7 of the books in the series and they keep getting better. Number 7 doesn't disappoint! KMM is a terrific author and Phil Gigganti is a fabulous narrator.
Can't wait for number 8! I half to say I cant get enough of this series. I love the magic and the love stories. I have now officially read all of Karen Moning's Highlander books. I considered her the "go-to" author of highlander novels. Many authors pen Scottish romance novels. I recently read a review of such a novel that said, "Highlander novels: if you've read one, you've read them all. Every book in this series is filled with fantasy, true love, and the hottest highlanders in the genre.
This series has surprised me with fresh and new storylines that had me swearing each book was better than the last. Just when I think she can't possibly top her previous book, she blows me away with a uniquely beautiful, sexy and engrossing story. This is the last of the full-length books in this series. It involves a 9th century legendary Celtic Druid, Cian Mackellan who is stuck in a spell that has imprisoned him in a magic mirror for 11 centuries.
Tricked by a dark sorcerer, Cian convinces a beautiful graduate student, Jessica St. James, to help him get free of the mirror. He wants vengeance on the powerful sorcerer who bespelled him. With the Jessica's help, Cian revisits his land in the highlands to exact his revenge in the lands that he grew up on.
Jessica and Cian have an instant strong attraction, and along the way they're feelings grow. But can a man stuck alone for 11 centuries really fall in love? And is his need for vengeance stronger than the bond theyve forged in the short time they have together? Filled with extraordinary twists and turns, a cast of your favorite characters from past books, this story has the passion, intrigue, and even a bit of dark magic, making it a positively fascinating page-turner which I finished in one sitting.
Narrated by the great Phil Gigante, I have nothing but praise for this magical story of good, evil, love, honor, sacrifice and family. Highly recommended! I read the book prior to listening to the audio. The audio enhanced the experience. The reader did a fantastic job with the male voices, tone of the book, accents and emotion.
My only complaint would be his female voices were only fair. They sounded ditzy, but he did such a good job otherwise I would listen to him again. I love the Highlander series by Karen Marie Moning. Although it is Primarily a historical Romance based series it is all leading up to a fantasy fiction series Fever and this book is not historical other than the history of myth and legend.
In this book the heavenly highlander is in our current timeframe and does not do any time traveling. It is still a love story altho it is by no means typical. Karen Marie Moning has written an amazing story that neatly crosses the boundaries into paranormal fantasy while still giving us the handsome highlander hero of a romance.
I totally enjoyed this exceptionally enchanted story. I am occasionally distracted when a female characters voice briefly loses all femininity. Otherwise he is a joy to listen to with his warm sexy voice and romantic Scots brogue. Full steam! I admit this was my first book and I purchased it because it was on sale.
