The Immortal Highlander: Review

The Immortal Highlander

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 anderoticism , 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...

Finally I have came to the Immortal. I adore Adam Black. I love this book. Karen Marie Moning does a wonderful job of progressing and building his character through the series. In previous books you might not like him in one part of the story then later doubt why you didn't. He is in a weakened state after healing Dageus in The Dark Highlander and Aoibheal, Queen of the Tutatha De Danaan punishes Adam by making him human. Oh how she will later come to regret that decision.

Now we get to see what makes Adam tick. *giggles*

" Damn it's good to be me." Adam Black on being Adam Black.

Gabrielle O'Callaghan is a sidhe seer who has managed to stay under the radar of the Fae. Most are taken at a young age to protect the Ancient race. Of course this is exactly who would stumble upon Adam. She has been taught to hate the Tuatha De Danaan. Adam has his on book which doesn't help his case.

As much as I want to spoil everyone, I won't. I'll tell you this though, you will find out why and how the vile Darroc comes to be human, get to visit some of our favorite Highlanders, and see how the Fae are masterful manipulators. I must end this review here or I won't be able to help but give spoilers and probably go on for pages. YOU DO NOT want to miss reading this book. Put down what you are reading and start The Immortal Highlander. If you don't read any other in this series, this one is a must read.
