With his long, black hair and dark, mesmerizing eyes, Adam Black is Trouble with a capital T. Immortal, arrogant, and intensely 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. With his very life at stake, 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 conspiracy that threatens both mortal and faery realms ... and give them a shot at a destiny few mortals ever know: glorious, wondrous, endless love ....… (mais)

Another excellent read!

Exactly what the title says. Another excellent read, but there is pattern to all the books in this series so far. I'm hoping the next book will mix it up a little. I do love the story lines and the adventure. This series will keep anyone entertained on a cold night. ( )

This was a really good book. Though I'm sitting here wondering reading all these why the main female character is always a virgin. I'm not saying anything bad about it, just a curiousity thing. But Adam Black has always intrigued me in the other stories, so I'm glad he got his own book, however I do think it was kind of shotty that Dark Highlander ended the way it did, just to find out that they did indeed get their happily ever after. However it was nice to see the Tuatha de daanan again, I've been kind of missing them. I love Karen Marie Monings books, her world she makes is just so realistic with a fantasy edge, it's awesome!!

The Immortal Highlander
4 Stars

One of the highlights is the connection to Moning's Fever series. While I am not a rabid fan of the books, primarily due to Mac's vacuousness and the excessively drawn out writing style, the detailed world building, engrossing Fae invasion plot and Barrons (*swoon*) make them worthwhile.

The insight in The Immortal Highlander into the backstory of a Sidhe-seer family and the history behind Darroc's relationship with Adam are particularly intriguing and add to my appreciation of both Adam and Gabby's story and Mac's struggles in the spin-off.

Another excellent aspect of the book is the return of Gwen and Drustan, and Chloe and Daegus from the previous two installments - it was great catching up with their romances.

Now to Adam and Gabby. To be honest, I was expecting more from Adam's redemption. Yes, he is gorgeous, sensual and sexy but he doesn't seem to learn humility or what it really means to be human until the last few pages. There should have been a more gradual development and recognition of his humanity. Gabrielle, on the other hand, is my type of heroine, full of spice and sass. She definitely gives Adam a run for his money and their interactions are wonderful.

Overall, this is a fun read but it doesn't quite succeed in knocking Daegus off his pedestal. ( )

This book wasn't as good as the 2 before in the series. I enjoyed the storyl-line however all the "recaps" got a bit tiresome, considering I had just finished reading the previous books in the series, I don't think I needed to know all that was told, even if I hadn't read those books, they gave away the plot of them and I would have rather been intrigued to read them - just my thoughts there. Other than that I liked Adam and Gabby. Gabby cracked me up a few times. I started to see a bit of the "before" and stuff leading up to the fever series.. which was kinda interesting. ( )
