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.
So it is going to be one of those series where every book I am claiming I think this one is my favorite.lol But its Adam freaking Black and well I have been waiting to see his story since the beginning and of coarse it was so worth the wait.
I am kinda sad, I didn't really get to see him in a kilt in this book.lol I have come to like these men in their kilts. But I was okay. It honestly doesn't matter what he is wearing because hes Adam and hes HOT!
I loved this couple. Adam and Gabby where perfect together. They where funny always bantering and had some great sexual tension. Adam is left in the human world where no one can see him except he happens to stumble upon a certain sidhe-seer! I think Fever fans will love this because we learn a little more about them. Gabby isn't immune to the Adam charm but she has grown up to fear the Fae so its no easy task getting her to trust him.
This book was just perfect!! It really is one of my favorites. But guess what I realized when reading this?? I skipped book 5! I am so so mad, because Dageus is one of the books I was really really excited to read. I am going back and getting that book asap!
If you haven't yet, then you must start this series! These men are totally YUMMY!
