To Tame a Highland Warrior by Karen Marie Moning
Frigging Amazing! Why did it have to end?!
Only her love could gentle his savage soul—
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. Clair. Yet even from afar he watched over her, and when her father sent an urgent summons, "Come for Jillian," he raced to her side—into a competition to win her hand in marriage.
Why had he run from her so many years before? And why return now to see her offered as a prize in her father's manipulative game? Furious, Jillian vowed never to wed. But Grimm was the man she loved, the one who urged her to marry another. He tried to pretend indifference as she tempted him, but he could not deny the fierce desires that compelled him to abduct her from the altar. She was the only woman who could tame the beast that raged within him—even as deadly enemies plotted to destroy them both....
An engrossing read for all Paranormal Romance lovers.
I've been a huge fan of Karen Marie Moning for the last few years and each time I find a novel by her that I haven't read, I immediately pick it up. I happened to miss this one, so I knew I had to read it asap.
'To Tame a Highland Warrior' is the second installment in the sexy 'Highlander' series by Karen Marie Moning. My first KMM novel was 'Darkfever', which is a different series than this, but the worlds do connect from time to time. Once I realized she wrote a Highlander series, I was running to the book store. Anyways, on to the review!
Gavrael McIllioch (aka Grimm) is...all male. *fans herself* Each Highlander novel I think, "This is my favorite highlander yet!" and then I read the next one and I just keep adding them to my list. She really does know how to write a sexy male I can tell you that!
Grimm was in the previous novel 'Highland Mist' as Hawk's best friend. I couldn't wait to read his story. 'To Tame a Highland Warrior' starts out in 1499. After he whiteness an awful tragedy at an early age, he runs away. He's determined to escape his fate and tries to erase all memories of his past. What he can't seem to forget is Jillian. But as the berserker, he can't trust himself not to hurt Jillian, so although it's hard, he tries to do the best for Jillian- avoid her.
Jillian St. Clair was a fun character. She's 21 and never wed. Her heart was broken as a young woman by the only man who seems to make her furious and hot all at the same time. One minute he seems to look like he returns her feelings and then the next his indifference is a stab in the chest.
I love the tension between Jillian and Grimm. Usually I wouldn't love how many times the female has to beg for the males attention, but since you know how much Grimm really does love her but wants the best for her, you can really get into it. It pretty witty.
This series is a MUST read. I recommend it to everyone and once you start it you'll more than agree.
