"You'll be swept away by this adventure"

Adam Black, the "bad boy" of the Tuatha Dé Danaan has displeased his queen and is sentenced to the mortal world as a human, but he stills has his lethally seductive fae splendor about him. He may not have minded this, but he's invisible, worse he can't even see his own kind. Unable to communicate with anyone, he is frustrated tremendously, but then he meets Gabrielle O'Callaghan, who is a Sidhe-seer, one that is able to see the faery folk. She was taught to fear them, and has avoided ever letting the fae know that she can see them, until one fatal mistake. She takes a double look at Adam and he knows that she can see him. She flees, but Adam has no plans of her escaping. He wants her and he needs her to help him. He thinks he will simply seduce her. Then when she's all goo-goo eyed over his existence, he will convince her to help him reach his queen.

To his utter surprise, Gabrielle doesn't immediately fall at his feet to worship him; however, he doesn't plan to give up.

When Gabrielle realizes that Adam is in danger, and he does a very un-Fae thing, by trying to save her, she realizes that maybe she has been wrong about the Fae. Maybe, they aren't heartless soulless creatures after all. Adam realizes that being immortal isn't all-powerful, for he has seen how mortals love, has felt it himself. It is a powerful magic wielded not selfishly, but willingly. To love someone enough, to make the sacrifices, no matter what the cost, in the end, the reward redeems the soul.

Loving anything to do with Ireland and its legends, I was intrigued by this story. Ms. Moning has written a tale interweaving the mythical Tuatha Dé Danaan, the Irish gods or faeries of Ireland , bringing them alive and involving you within their conflicts. Adam and Gabrielle's attraction to each other is believable, and the foreplay is literally scorching. You'll be swept away by this adventure, captured in its glamour, for Ms. Moning is indeed a true seanchai (storyteller).

SUMMARY

Enter a world of timeless seduction, of ancient intrigue and modern-day passion. Enter the dazzling world of Karen Marie Moning, whose acclaimed Highlander novels have captivated readers, spanning the continents and the centuries, bringing ancient Scotland vividly to life. In a new novel brimming with time-travel adventure and sensual heat, the nationally bestselling author of The Dark Highlander delivers a love story that will hold you in thrall—and a hero you will most certainly never forget.

BEWARE: lethally seductive alpha male of immense strength and dark eroticism, do not look at him. Do not touch him. Do not be tempted. Do not be seduced.

With his long, black hair and dark, mesmerizing eyes, Adam Black is Trouble with a capital T. Immortal, arrogant, and intensely sensual, he is the consummate seducer, 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. With his very life at stake, Adam's only hope for survival is in the hands of the one woman who can actually see him.

Enter law student Gabrielle O'Callaghan, who is cursed with the ability to see both worlds: Mortal and Faery. From the moment she lays eyes on this stunning male, Gabby is certain of one thing: He could be her undoing. Thus begins a long, dangerous seduction. Because despite his powerful strength and unquenchable hungers, Adam refuses to take a woman by force. Instead, he will tease his way into Gabby's bed and make her want him just as he wants her.

Now, no matter how hard Gabby tries to avoid him, Adam is everywhere, invisible to all but her—perched atop her office cubicle in too-tight jeans, whispering softly from behind the stacks of the law library, stealing her breath away with his knowing smile...all the while tempting her with the promise of unimaginable pleasure in his arms. But soon danger will intrude on this sensual dance. For as Adam's quest to regain his immortality plunges them into a world of timeless magic and the deadly politics of the Faery queen's court, the price of surrender could be their very lives. Unless they can thwart the conspiracy that threatens both mortal and Faery realms...and give them a shot at a destiny few mortals ever know: glorious, wondrous, endless love.
