(Free Kindle) ⚜ The Immortal Highlander ò eBook or E-pub free
Damn, it's good to be Adam Black sorry, I couldn't resist, LOL but I bet it's better to be Adam Black's lover!Adam is one of those heroes you just love to hate or hate to love, either way works for me He was selfish, arrogant, manipulative and didn't have any qualms about using anyone and anything to his own advantage He was also as handome and sexy as one can be, which only helped him to get what he wanted BUT there was something beneath all that, something that shouldn't be there considering he was basically a soulless and unfeeling Fae Had it always been there? I really didn't see it in the previous book in the series, and I think KMM has done a great job making me believe in Adam's change of heart figuratively speaking, since Faes don't have hearts.Gabby was funny and likeable, but not really remarkable I think the problem was, Adam stole the show and she didn't have enough spark to stand on her own Bottom line, she wasn't as interesting as Lisa, Gwen and Chloe, the heroines in the previous books BTW, Gwen, Chloe and their respective MacKeltar husbands sighs! makethan an simple appearance and play important roles in The Immortal Highlander I have to say, their reactions when they see Adam in the flesh for the first time was priceless, LOL I had expected to see Circenn too after all, he was Adam's son but he was a noshow Oh well, we can't always have it all, right?Once again, KMM told a story that kept me captivated and entertained The love scenes were hot not hard to imagine, since Adam oozed sex appeal and there was always something happening to keep me turning the pages anxiously Aoibheal's revelation after she restored Adam's immortality was unexpected and I had a hard time buying it I really didn't see how he could have been fooled like that Anyway, that wasn't enough to ruin the story for me.This book was nicely tied to the previous ones in the series I particularly liked how Adam made everything right for Circenn and Lisa, the H/h in The Highlander's Touch , so this is one series that definitely must be read in order. So, I was trying to ease my Fever withdrawal pains by reading one of Moning's Highlander romances Pretty much had to drop it after 15 minutes of listening to it I should have known it wouldn't work for me after hearing this, right at the beginning:Adam Black:Tuatha De Danaan, a rogue even among his own kind His favored glamour is that of an intensely sexual Highland blacksmith with a powerful rippling body, golden skin, long black hair, mesmerizing eyes Highly intelligent, lethally seductive from the O'Callaghan Books of the Fae, LondonSo, Adam is some powerful fae and all he cares about is looking like a sexy blacksmith with long hair? Just couldn't take this seriously Can you blame me?Goodness, I miss Jericho!P.S Men should not narrate romance audiobooks IMO It's creepy.
Written June 25, 20154 1/2 Stars Simply wonderful in the very best kind of 'Highlander' styleThe Immortal Highlander is a contemporary (slightly) paranormal 'Highlander' romance I listened to the 10 hrs audiobook excellent narrated by Phil Gigante Yay, I love these Scottish menOnce again a great installment in a wonderful humorous, romantic hot, very wellwritten series *********************************************Present day in U.S.The immortal Prince Faery Adam Black is punished by his, right now angry, mighty queen The evil penalty is that he for a time is an invisible mortal man He travels from Scotland to U.S where he by a coincidence meets the law student Gabrielle O'Callaghan Gabrielle is cursed with the ability to see both worlds, Mortal and Faery, and Adam needs her “For the record, Irish,” he informed her tightly, just in case she got the wrong idea, “I kneel to no one.”Amusing, romantic, steamy and just greatThis was the third for me in this timetravel series (loved part #4 ★★★★★ and #5 ★★★★☆) It seems to be one book a year for me but it's always good to be back in this wonderful Highlander land again This über sexy caveman hero, Adam Black, turned out to be amazing fun to know already in the first chapter He made this story, as these male highlanders always are the yummy icing on the cake in this amusing Karen Marie Moning world ~ Precisely nothing to complain about, just marvelous enjoying.The narrator did it well too I like his voice a lot (for the male characters anyway) ~ It will bebooks / audiobooks in this series and I'll not wait another year.*********************************************I LIKE men like Adam **drool** Adam Black is no longer immortal! [He] had been killing time since – endeavoring grimly to ignore that, for the first time in his timeless existence, time was returning the favor.All the hearts ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ and stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ for Adam Black’s story! Why did I wait for so long to continue this series?!Reasons why this book is amazing:✅ Adam Black: mischievous, hotter than hell, severalthousandyearold immortal Tuatha Dé (Fae) turned human✅ finally: a Sidheseer (Faeseer) and our heroine at that! (cf Fever series)✅ the humorous, tongueincheek tone I missed in The Dark Highlander is back (see below for some samples)✅ steamy sex, not overdone (disclaimer: adult content, 18!)The ties to the other books in this series and the Fever series make this book evenamazing:✅ Drustan and Dageus McKeltar, Gwen and Chloe✅ Darroc’s history✅ Circenn, Adam's son (though I would have liked for him and his family to actually make an appearance)✅ Adam’s history with Morganna (Circenn’s mother)✅worldbuilding in preparation for FeverI’ve said it in my reviews of the previous books and I’ll say it again: READ THIS SERIES! If you’ve loved the Fever series or if you like feelgood, tongueincheek, humorous romance (with a touch of historical fiction and fantasy) in general, you will be in for a fun reading experience; even if you didn’t much like the first book (I didn’t either), it’s really worth hanging in there.Books in this series so far:Beyond the Highland Mist: ⭐️⭐️⭐️To Tame a Highland Warrior ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️The Highlander‘s Touch ⭐️⭐️⭐️Kiss of the Highlander ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️The Dark Highlander ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️The Immortal Highlander ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️Here are some samples of Moning’s tongueincheek writing I love so much:Adam’s musings on the significance of time: “[Adam had] become obsessed with increments of time It was an embarrassingly mortal affliction Next thing he knew, he’d be wearing a watch.”“Upon arriving in Cincinnati, [Adam had] found Circenn’s residence vacant, and had no idea where to look for him next He’d taken up residence there himself, and had been killing time since – endeavoring grimly to ignore that, for the first time in his timeless existence, time was returning the favor – waiting for Circenn to return.” Gabby on the impact of simple decisions such as buying a cup of coffee: “Later Gabby would realize that it was all the cup of coffee’s fault Every awful thing that happened to her from that moment on could be traced directly back to that cup of coffee with the stunning simplicity of an airtight conditional argument: If not for A (said cup of coffee), then not B (blowing job interview), hence not C (having to go into work that night), and certainly not D (the horrible thing that happened to her there)on to infinity.” Adam’s experience with being a human male: “It had just been made excruciatingly clear to him that the human male brain and the human male cock couldn’t both sustain sufficient amounts of blood to function at the same time It was one or the other, and the human male apparently didn’t get to choose which one.” Adam on semantics: “Gabby nodded ‘I have one of the, erfairies here with me –‘‘Tuatha Dé,’ Adam corrected irritably ‘You’re bloody well making me sound like Tinkerbell.’” Just one errant thought: Why is everyone in this series a frigging virgin?? Huge 5 starsWow! Just Wow! I adore this book Adore it! By far my favorite of the series Adam Black *dreamy sigh* is an immortal dark Fae prince with an abundance of mischievousness, arrogance, dangerous unpredictability, and a devilish insatiable sexuality He's the ultimate seducer The story begins with Adam being punished by the Faery Queen (who adores him, of course) for his repeated interference with his toy humans She strips him of his immortality and makes him invisible to all around him Such a plight and pity for our poor irresistible Adam Enter law student Gabrielle Gabby O’Callaghan Gabby, a Sidheseer, has the ability to see both worlds; mortal and faery From the moment she lays eyes on Adam, she knows he could be her undoing, which is very dangerous for her, as the Tuatha De, which Adam is a member, have eradicated all Sidheseers from the earth Thus begins a long and dangerous seduction that will ultimately changes both their lives forever Regardless of how how hard she tries, Gabby can't seem to avoid Adam, he everywhere Invisible to all but her, he pampers and treats her in way she's not accustom and relentlessly temps her with the promise of erotic pleasure Pretty temping for a lonely virgin, I'd say Unfortunately, danger intrudes on this sensual pursuit and Adam’s quest to regain his immortality immerses them into the deadly politics of the Tuatha De.Adam is by far my favorite character of the series I could tell KMM had a blast writing him In fact, Adam kinda steals the show, so to speak, almost to the detriment of the other characters As much as I love Gabby and feel she's a strong and wonderful heroine, she does pale and become somewhat overshadowed by Adam's bigger than life character The Immortal Highlander is a fast paced read, that not only provides laugh out loud moment but also is an extremely sensual and erotic read This is a book I will read again and again and again. Adam Black has piqued my curiosity in the previous Highlander books: A larger than life Fae, a Tuatha De, arrogant, sparkly beautiful, seductive, unpredictable, sexual, a player, Queen’s consort A manipulative, totally dark in soul and his thinking male He loves playing with the humans’ lives, plotting and pretending being God.Gabrielle Gabby O’Callaghan is a Sidheseer and she has the ability to see both worlds; mortal and faery (once again I wish I had read this series before Fever).Gabby is trying very hard to live a normal life She is a law student working for a law company that she hates She also pretends that she does not see fairies This is something that her grandmother taught her…because fairies are manipulative, soulless, and incapable of feeling anything They are bad bad beings It does not matter that Gabby since she was a kid loved them and was fantasizing that a fae prince would come and sweep her off her feet Her grandmother was strict “Avoid them with any cost When they find out about you, RUN!”And then Gabby meets the worst of them all Adam’s life collides with her life, when she lifts her eyes and sees him and her glance stays there She does not pretend that she does not see him or that he is transparent and she is looking something behind him She cannot take her eyes from him And then she RUNS And he RUNS after her Of course she will be caught LOLTrying to survive a terrible curse, Adam will use Gabby They will travel from USA to Scotland, attempting to avoid other fairies and Hunters and not be killed in the process Our favorite highlanders and druids Drustan and Dageus will help In the end Adam has to make decisions How far can he go? How many things he can sacrifice for Gabby? How can he fall in love, when he is not supposed to feel anything.This is by far my favorite book in the series Adam is definitely my favorite character. 5 Swoonworthy Stars!! I am Given My soul is yours Adam Black! Another fantastic installment in this series, this one rounding out not only Adam’s story, but the MacKeltars too!! Poor Adam is being punished for doing something good, but because of his meddling in the human world, he’s been rendered powerless in his own The prince is no ; he’s just a mere mortal wandering aimlessly unbeknownst even to his own kind That is until he crosses paths with Gabrielle O'Callaghan who has a gift, or in her mind a curse, and is able to see the Fae! He is the only fairy that Gabby has ever made eye contact with and it changes her life forever and his is just about to begin!Adam, Adam, Adam…oh my, my you cocky, sexy, naughty, brawny, wicked boy!! RAWRRRR!! Gabby is feisty, strong, smart, beautiful, and very lonely, my heart broke for her She needs a man like Adam in her life; even though he and the possibility of a relationship with him go against everything she’s been taught The two of them can’t deny the overwhelming desire they have for one another and as they journey together to bring Adam back to his world, they start to fall in love This book was fabulous It was funny, passionate, heartbreaking, heartwarming and loaded with testosterone!! WOW!!! The MacKeltars and Adam had my heart a flutter and I was quivering and quaking! The sisterhood that develops between Gabby, Gwen and Chloe was lovely Although the books that I’ve read in this series followed somewhat of a formula, the characters and the storyline is what sets them apart Each one leaves you with a satisfying ending, BUT this one nearly brought me to my knees!! My heart pounded, I was breathless and tearyeyed when I read this beautiful, emotional ending and epilogue, and then went back and read it again and again!! I can’t recommend this book, and the two that came before, enough Once again I thank my lovely friend Kristen for showing me the way to these books that now sit proudly on my favorites shelf!! This could be Adam and Gabby’s song: Crashed by Daughtryhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5uArjFrom your face, your eyesare burning into meYou saved me, you gave meJust what I needohh, just what I needAnd then I crashed into youand I went up in flamesCould've been the death of meBut then you breathed your breath in meThen I crashed into youlike a runaway trainYou will consume meBut, I can't walk away 4.75 StarsAdam Black has been the only constant character through out this series and to be honest although he is drop dead gorgeous (and I would never ever kick him out of bed given the chance) I didn't think I would like his book all too much because he has always been such an arrogant tool.But *hangs head in shame* I should have hadfaith in Karen Marie Moning she has never disappointed me before To be honest I would probably say this was my favourite book in the series (although I have loved them all) Adam is such a sweet seducer and I fell in love with him wholeheartedly straight away I'd take him bananas and all *inside joke must read the book*Favourite quotes:1 It had just been made excruciatingly clear to him that the human male brain and the human male cock couldn't both sustain sufficient amounts of blood to function at the same time.2The Tutha De do not speak of Tuatha De matters to he gave her an icy sneer mere mortals.Well, mistermeremortalyourself, she bristled right back at him, maybe you'd better get used to it, because whether or not you like it, you need at least one of us 'mere mortals' to help you become a pompousassholefairything again.3 Possession is ninetenths of the law, Gabrielle Seeing as how your bottom is currently in my hands, not yours, I believe that makes it mine.

Damn, its good to be me Adam Black, on being Adam Black Adam Black is a Tuatha De’Danaan, rouge even among his own kind His favoured glamour is that of an intensely sexual Highland blacksmith with a powerful rippling body, golden skin, long black hair, and dark, mesmerizing eyes Highly intelligent and lethally seductive Alleged to have nearly broken The Compact on not one, but two occasions He is, by far, the most dangerous and unpredictable of his race.Oh and did I mention frigging hot to trot with a shlong the size of King Kong!?!?!?!? Oh *sighs dreamily* Adam Black, sex is not the answer Sex is the question Yes is my answer – YES! I can only imagine that if I ever got my hands onto your fairy body the sex would be so good that even the neighbours would need to have a cigarette The other day upon the stair, I saw a man who wasn’t there He wasn’t there again today; how I wish he’d go away! Gabrielle O’Callaghan, on Adam Black I enjoyed Gabrielle’s character I do tend to get a bit pissy at female characters with their constant self analysis about crap that is totally irrelevant Not that Gabrielle wasn’t completely without a little self deprecation; it was just that it wasn’t to the extent where I felt like clobbering her one over the head with a mallet She was intelligent – studying to be a lawyer in fact And she withstood Adams sexy charms longer than any sane woman would have I bow to her.So needless to say, I loved this book This of course is the story of Adam Black and Gabrielle O’Callaghan and is easily the best I have read so far in this series I found there was a lot of laugh out loud moments is the book The plot was enthralling and fast paced Adam *sigh* is being punished by his Queen for restoring the life of Daegus Mackelter and has forced him into being human and invisible to everyone around him That is, everyone except Gabby Gabrielle is a sidheseer (someone who can see the Fae) When Adam realized that she can see him, he sets out ruthlessly to get Gabrielle to help him set his life back to rights Gabrielle has grown up thinking that all fairies are evil so is very wary about helping Adam, but learns quickly along the way that you should never take anything at face value.Of course there are the usual baddies who are set out to release Hunters into the human world and kill Adam Black.The romance between Adam and Gabrielle was palpable They have grant banter and such a great attraction toward one another Gabrielle withstood Adams charms for an awfully long time and just when you think something was finally going to happen – they get.interrupted KMM made these two characters work for each other, with Adam perpetually trying to seduce Gabrielle.Faults? I am a little over the all the mid twenty year old virgins Can we not have just one girl in the series that already had her ‘maidenhead’ taken by say, I don’t know.the jerk down the road? And onetiny thing, long hair down to ones waist, would be so terribly disgusting on a man Can you imagine the knots? BlehSummary – The Immortal Highlander was a truly wonderful read I haven’t laughed out loud in a book like this for a long time I recommend this to anyone hasn’t read it.
