The Immortal Highlander is a sexy rush of adventure. If
there was a male
Scottish equivalent to the Greek goddess Aphrodite it
would have to be Adam
Black. His sexual prowess was well known by both in the
human and fae realm.
Once a favorite to the fae Queen Aoibeal, Adam pushed her
buttons one too many
times and made the mistake of speaking against her in
front of the council. To
over look this would undermined her position, thus Adam is
cursed to wander the
human world unseen and stripped of most of his powers. And
for a sensual man who
revels in his sexuality, to be deemed invisible was
Enter Gabrielle O'Callaghan [Gabbi] on of the last of her
kind in the human
world she has the ability to see faery. Though cloaked to
the human eye, her
gift makes her too unique and as such a threat to the fae.
Thus she works very
hard to pretend not to see them in hopes to lead a normal
life. All other seers
have been destroyed by the Hunters of the Tuatha de
Gabbi's world is about to get turned upside-down as she
accidentally stumbles on
Adam Black laying in repose on a park bench. When she
first sees him she doesn't
realize he is fae until she sees the royal jewels he
wears, but by the time she
figures this out it is too late and he has seen her seeing
him. While Adam is
elated at the prospect of being seen, Gabbi is terrified
and knows all bets are
off, she can no longer pretend...she has been discovered.
There is only one thing
she can do when faced with very sexy Adam Black...turn and
run like hell.
You just can't go wrong with a Karen Marie Moning book.
Sixth in her Highlander
series, The Immortal Highlander had me riveted as I
laughed out loud, bit my
nails and blushed to the roots of my hair. It was very
impressive that Ms.
Moning could create a strong enough female character to
match the lick-your-lips
sexy, Adam Black.
Without a doubt I unequivocally recommend this book. You
could read it as a
stand alone, but I believe readers will enjoy it that much
more if they follow
the series as some of the characters from previous books
are revisited. To sum
this book up in two words...It Rocks!

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.
