Publisher's Summary

Jessi St. James has got to get a life. Too many hours studying ancient artifacts has given the hardworking archaeology student a bad case of sex on the brain. So she figures she must be dreaming when she spies a gorgeous half-naked man staring out at her from inside the glass of an ancient mirror.But when a split-second decision saves her from a terrifying attempt on her life, Jessi suddenly finds herself confronting six-and-a-half feet of smoldering, insatiable alpha male.Heir to the arcane magic of his Druid ancestors, Cian MacKeltar was trapped inside the Dark Glass 11 centuries ago. And when the Dark Glass is stolen, an ancient enemy will stop at nothing to reclaim it.For Jessi, the sex god in the mirror is not only tantalizingly real, he's offering his protection - from exactly what, Jessi doesn't know. And all he wants in exchange is the exquisite pleasure of sharing her bed.

Perfect Mating of Story and Storyteller

Phil Gigante's eargasmic performances of all the books in the Highlanders series are the perfect mating of story and storyteller and I can't imagine merely reading these stories from a printed page ever again.

While no one will ever mistake Phil's voice for a woman's, I quickly was no longer conscious that a man was voicing the female characters. He uses a higher pitched voice for women, but there's something else there too... a softness, a vulnerability... something... that does not scream "man mocking woman".

Now the men's voices? OCH! I'm pretty sure that the scenes where they are all together should carry embedded warnings, "Warning: the following scenes carry serious risk of Death by Eargasm"! Drustan's voice is my favorite- Gigante uses a deep growling brogue imbued with Drustan's complete confidence in himself. Dageus' Scottish brogue by way of Liverpool reflects his mischievous, "Hail fellow, well met" personality- when he isn't possessed by a baker's dozen of ancient evil Druids, of course. Phil gives Adam both a sidhe and a human voice that never quite loses his seductive sidhe arrogance. Cian's sexy brogue contains an underlying anger and iciness which, considering he's been trapped in a mirror for hundreds of years, seems more than appropriate, but gradually one can detect a subtle thawing and underlying warmth.

In addition to bringing the main characters alive, Phil G. puts just as much effort into making the secondary characters seem real to the listener. Whether voicing an old woman, one of the villains, or even a child, Phil plays his voice like the fine instrument it is to make every character distinctive and believable. He also adds special effects that bring the story to life-- wait till you hear his effect for Druid "Voice"!

Those entertaining extra touches are why Phil Gigante's performances are not to be missed!
