The Immortal Highlander by Karen Marie Moning
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.
Wow wow wow!
Karen Marie Moning is one of my favorite authors, and I love both her Fever series and her Highlander series, but this book tops the cake!
This is the Sixth novel in the Highlander series by KMM and all I feel like saying is, "Wow".
I've been dying to read the story of Adam Black, and this surpassed any expectations I had of it. He was a tough, hardhearted mischievous fey, and he's being punished. Being invisible is horrible for Adam, he can't stand it. He keeps thinking his Queen will change him back at any moment, but that moment never comes.
Gabrielle O’Callaghan can see fae. She doesn't like it and lives in fear of becoming caught, (which is something no human wants.)
She ends up coming across a fey, too beautiful to be human, but has her doubts. He's eyes are fey, but he must be...
Gabrielle's life will never be the same after seeing Adam Black, and he is set out to make sure of that.
I love the chemistry between Adam and Gabrielle. They have great banter, and even better attraction towards one another. Gabrielle is torn between believing Adam and not relying on what she knows from her books on fae. Adam is torn between getting back to his normal self, and protecting Gabrielle. They both find out things they never dreamed of, and go on an adventure of a life time together.
The Immortal Highlander was truly a wonderful read, with both laughs and tears. I would recommend it to anyone who loves Paranormal Romance, Romance and Historic Romance. It is one for the shelves that's for sure!
