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...
Once I actually re-picked up this book, and sat down and read it I couldn't put it down. I started this book around 11pm and just now finished at 4:26am. I love it when a book gets you so drawn in that you can't put it down. But it can also be a downfall, especially when you have kids and college work to do. But since I read this while my kids were asleep it's ok, because I don't do my homework this late due to the fact I can't think in regards to academics this late at night.
Anyways to the book. This one was definitely better than the first though I liked the first book "Beyong the Highlands Mist", this one was more intriguing. The cat and mouse game was entertaining and sometimes really aggravating. But that's what I love about the PNR genre. The love and the aggravation you get from the characters. A good book, gets you deeply involved not only in the storyline, but also in the characters especially if you are going to see these characters through out the series. I love Grimm, I love his name, and his real name too, I love Jillian she was feisty and never gave up on what she wanted. I have a thing about books with men who have had a tortured past, and Grimm well he definitely had a tortured past. But since I try not to go into too much detail about a book, so I don't ruin it for others (key word "Trying"). This book was awesome, others have said the books get much better as you go, well if they get better after this one, maybe we need a 6 or 7 star rating system. *wink wink*
