The Immortal Highlander by Karen Marie Moning

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, mesmerizing eyes, Adam Black is Trouble with a capital T. Immortal, arrogant, and intensely sensual, he is the consummate seducer, 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, who is cursed with the ability to see both worlds: Mortal and Faery. From the moment she lays eyes on this stunning male, Gabby is certain of one thing: He could be her undoing. Thus begins a long, dangerous seduction. Because despite his powerful strength and unquenchable hungers, Adam refuses to take a woman by force. Instead, he will tease his way into Gabby's bed and make her want him just as he wants her.

Now, no matter how hard Gabby tries to avoid him, Adam is everywhere, invisible to allbut her--perched atop her office cubicle in too-tight jeans, whispering softly from behind the stacks of the law library, stealing her breath away with his knowing smile...all the while tempting her with the promise of unimaginable pleasure in his arms. But soon danger will intrude on this sensual dance. For as Adam's quest to regain his immortality plunges them into a world of timeless magic and the deadly politics of the Faery queen's court, 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.

Is it me or does everyone start purring? I noticed it in The Dark Highlander. Dageus purrs, Adams purrs, Chloe and Gabby purr. What's up with the purring?

So Adam is now mortal. The Fae Queen has stripped him of all his powers and made him invisible. She figures since Adam loves being around the mortals, she would make him one as punishment.

Adam is not happy. Powerless and invisible to fae and humans. Oh hell no. Not for Adam Black. He's start searching for Circenn, hoping he'll be able to help Adam. But Adam stumbles upon Gabby. A person who is able to see both fae and human. Once her kind had been adored. Now they in fear of fae.

Adam asks her for help. She says no. Adam then starts hanging around. In her cubicle at work, looking sexy as hell. He gives her a BMW, gets her dinner from thee most expensive restaurants, basically just starts wear her down to say yes. It doesn't help that's he incredibly sexy.

Gabby agrees to help him out. With Gabby's help, Adam learns his nemis Darroc is out to kills Adam. Since he needs to warn the queen, he must be creative in getting her attention. So off the Scotland they head to meet the Mackeltar twins.

Now, the scene when Dageus make Adam visible. Priceless. Gwen and Chloe just drool over the guy. Drustan and Dageus regret making Adam visible. Adam just sits back and says, "Bloody hell it's good to be back" Oh wait.. he purred that.

This book was ok. I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it. It was just good. But I have to say, KMM loves scenes seem to be getting steamier with each book. Me likes it. Also, I noticed the reference that Adam may have had a hand in making the Mc Illioch (sp?) berserk. I didn't catch that before.

I did love the last scene, Adam's happily ever after. I thought it was fitting for him. But that's just me.

Oh and wanted to add, that I think KMM did a really good job in making Adam a hero. From hating him in Beyond the Highland Mist to appreciating him in this book. For that, she deserves kudos. Cause Adam was such an ass in the book.
