The Immortal Highlander by Karen Marie Moning

From the Publisher...

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, mesmerising eyes, Adam Black is Trouble with a capital T. Immortal, arrogant, and intensly sensual, he is 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. Now 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. For Gabrielle, cursed with the ability to see both worlds, Mortal and Faery, it is the beginning of a long, dangerous seduction. But as Adam's quest to regain his immortality plunges them into a world of timeless magic, the price of surrender could be their very lives. Unless they can thwart the cosnpiracy that threatens both Mortal and Faery realms...and give them a shot at a destiny few mortals ever know: glorious, wondrous, endless love...

From Me...



Of all of the highlander books, this is my least favorite. It's not a bad book, and is some ways it's quite enjoyable.  For some, I can definitely see the dark fae being appealing for some.  His mischievous and sarcastic demeanor can be intriguing. I could not get over the things we already knew about Adam.  It's not that I didn't like him, especially as love transformed his surly attitude, but I couldn't get quite as invested in him.  I did like the idea that KMM chose to use a less than perfect man as the romantic interest.

This story is good, and should be read as an easy and funny read.  Not my favorite, but not so bad.  To be fair, this has a 4.33/5 rating on Goodreads so even though its not for me, its good for a lot of people!!!

Favorite Quotes...

It's Good to be Adam Black.
