To Tame a Highland Warrior by Karen Marie Moning

Only her love could gentle his savage soul--

He was born to a clan of warriors of supernatural strength, but Gavrael McIllioch abandoned his name and his Highland castle, determined to escape the dark fate of his ancestors. Hiding his identity from the relentless rival clan that hunted him, he called himself Grimm to protect the people he cared for, vowing never to acknowledge his love for ravishing Jillian St. Clair. Yet even from afar he watched over her, and when her father sent an urgent summons, "Come for Jillian," he raced to her side--into a competition to win her hand in marriage.

Why had he run from her so many years before? And why return now to see her offered as a prize in her father's manipulative game? Furious, Jillian vowed never to wed. But Grimm was the man she loved, the one who urged her to marry another. He tried to pretend indifference as she tempted him, but he could not deny the fierce desires that compelled him to abduct her from the altar. She was the only woman who could tame the beast that raged within him--even as deadly enemies plotted to destroy them both....

This is the second book in Karen Marie Moning's series. It's the sequel to Beyond the Highland Mist. However, it makes no mention of Adam Black or the McKelter twins. So if you wanted, you could skip this and come back to it later. This is the only book that is not time travel in KMM's series.

So when Grimm is 14 years old, his clan is attacked. He stumbles upon his father taking out a knife from his mother's chest. Grimm can't believe what he sees and asks why. His father says they are born this way. Grimm runs away and summons to become a Berserker. A warrior so powerful, he's impossible to kill. The sign of a berseker: Ice blue eyes. Did I mention I'm a sucker for beautiful eyes?

So he runs away from home and he stumbles upon Caithness (sp?). It is there he meets Jillian. Jillian knows that Grimm is the man she wants to marry. Because Grimm believes madness and murder runs in his family, he tries to push Jillian away. After an attack on Jillian's family, Grimm leaves and that's how he meets Hawk.

Years later, Jillian father's grows weary of her sending away suitors. He summons 3 men to court Jillian. Grimm being one of them. Her father is one smart cookie, I have to say. He's done his research on Bersekers.

Jillian and Grimm resume their love/hate relationship. Grimm at first pushes Jillian to pursue one of the other two men, but she wants Grimm. Grimm is just afraid what the berserker in him will do to Jillian.

The rest, you have to read for yourself. I will say that Grimm learns the truth on what happened to his family the day of the attack.

This is one if my favorite KMM books. I love this story. I adore Grimm. He's my favorite KMM hero. I also loved Jillian parents. They were just too cute.
