Publisher's Summary

Highland warriors, sworn to protect innocence through the ages... A dark, ruthless Highlander, the Black Macleod has refused his destiny. His life is revenge for the massacre of his family. His enemies' insults - that he is a man of stone - only amuse him. But fate is impatient, and when a woman from another time dares to summon him, he cannot resist her powers - or her.... Vengeance was his only companion
A schoolteacher by day, Tabitha Rose uses her magic to protect others by night. When the vision of a dark Highlander, bloody and burned, appears to Tabby, she knows she has been called to help him, no matter how frightening he might be. But what Tabby doesn't expect is to be taken against her will to his dark, violent time. And when evil begins to stalk her, she realizes she must fight for far more than his destiny - she must fight for her love....

Not up to par

I did not like this book at all. I have listened to all the Highlander series by Moning, Outlander by Gabaldon, and many of the Dark Hunter series by Kenyon. This book is not up to par. I do not think the writer is very good, definitely cannot compare to the other authors. I never liked the hero he was simply a jerk with little or no redeeming qualities. His redemption is too little too late. I did not understand the romance between the main characters, never believed it. The author tried to replace real emotion and love with lust and did a poor job of it. Waste of money. The narrator was horrible as well.

I really enjoyed this!

As a huge fan of "The Black Dagger Brotherhood" series by JR Ward, and Gena Showalters "Lords of the Underworld" series, I like my romances to be hot. Very hot. I was not Disappointed with "Dark Victory". The story was captivating, and the characters interesting. The romance scenes were hot as well, although one of my few complaints would be that the author doesn't spend enough time describing the actual deed itself. none the less, I found it very sexy and satisfying. The narrator does an excellent job as well. I think it is very hard to find a decent narrator for these types of books. Most of them come off annoying. but She did a very good job. I would listen to her again anytime. The only other real downfall of this book is that Ms. Joyce gets a little repetitive in her vocabulary choices. I think she must have said, "Tabby cried out," and "He/she was incredulous". about eight dozen times. but all and all, this was a great listen, and I will be looking for more by this author and narrator, hopefully in the same series.
