Publisher's Summary

A warrior of immortal powers....He was a mighty Scottish warrior who lived in a world bound by ancient laws and timeless magic. But no immortal powers could prepare the laird of Castle Brodie for the lovely accursed lass who stood before him. A terrible trick of fate had sent her 700 years back in time and into his private chamber to tempt him with her beauty - and seduce him with a desire he could never fulfill. For this woman he burned to possess was also the woman he had foresworn to destroy. A woman caught in the mists of time....When Lisa felt the earth move under her feet, the fiercely independent 21st-century woman never dreamed she was falling...into another century. But the powerful, naked warrior who stood glaring down at her was only too real...and too dangerously arousing.Irresistibly handsome he might be, but Lisa had no intention of remaining in this savage land torn by treachery and war. How could she know that her seductive captor had other plans for her...plans that would save her from a tragic fate? Or that this man who had long ago forsaken love would defy time itself to claim her for his own?

What the Critics Say

"Phil Gigante's smooth and sexy Scots brogue is so well done that listeners may think Sean Connery himself is delivering this time-travel tale." (AudioFile)

Fabulous!!

This one was better than the first two books. The narrator for the men was fantastic. Not so great for the women, but not horrid. The story was fun and sexy. I felt the author did a good job of merging fantasy and reality. This is one I would definately recommend.

Sean Connery and the Drag Queen

I liked this story, I really did. The narrator did an excellent job "narrating" but every time he had the hero speak I kept thinking that at some point he learned to impersonate Sean Connery in Hunt for Red October and never got over it. Sean, I mean the hero, had his moments and some of it pretty hot, but how did he get stuck with the heroine who sounded like a female impersonator? She wasn't well drawn in the first place, they kept saying she was strong, but every time she opened her mouth, she sounded hysterical (oh, an in case you don't pick it up from the plot, she's worried about her mother...). The hero was made of stronger stuff than I at being willing to spend eternity with that one.

I liked the mythical characters in the last hour or so of the book which dwells heavily on them. I'm not usually interested in faeries, but the "bad" guy has potential for a book of his own.

I'd buy another book by this author, I just hesitate at making it an audible book due to the characters' voices. This otherwise would have been a 5 star review.
