"takes sexy to a whole new level"

Karen Marie Moning takes sexy to a whole new level with Adam Black!

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 cruelty enough.

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 Danaan/faery.

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!

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.
