This is the second book in the Highlander series. The story of Grimm and Jillian. Grimm we first meet in Beyond the Highland Mist, where he has a minor roll. Here we learn Grimm's story. Grimm is a Berserker, a race of legenday Scottish warriors. Not understanding what he is, and believing it will lead him to madness and possibly murder Grimm spends years running from himself and a clan, the McKanes, that has vowed to hunt and destroy the line of warriors. Enter Jillian, Grimm's true mate. He however is afraid he will bring her nothing but pain and death and pushes her away at every opportunity. The first half of the book is simply Grimm's struggle with accepting who he is and Jillian's love.

It wasn't my favorite of the series. It was good, but probably the least exciting. I still recommend this book because it is just as vital to read if you plan on catching the entire series. She has a fabulous way of combining celtic mysticism and historical romance without feeling forced. This is a wonderful series.

This is my favorite book of ALL time. Karen Marie Moning outdid herself in this book, showing Grimm to have this beautiful longing for a woman he's known his entire life. The sexual tension between these two is thick enough to slice glass! :)

I think these Highlander books start off very slowly. They all have a similar theme, the man (or woman) has some secret that he/she thinks is unworthy of the other's love. Always underestimating their bond to each other. However, I really want to know the full fae story to see how it relates to the Fever series, because I read that first. The end is always good and the book is quite steamy.

Not much of a plot and a lot of similar scenes repeated for the first 200 pages: Gorgeous man with terrible secret thinks he's not good enough for amazingly beautiful and rich nobleman's daughter. Keeps pushing her away. Lots of physical descriptions and plenty of passionate scenes. The Celtic and Viking legends are interesting and Moning can tell a good story, but this one didn't hold my interest. I started this series with The Dark Highlander and it's still my favorite of the bunch.

Loved this book. It's the story of Grimm who is introduced in "Beyond the Highland Mist." He is an honorable and fierce warrior who happens to be a Berserker. He is summoned by Gibraltar St. Clair to "come for Jillian". As he owes much to the St Clair he leaves at once. Jillian is the St Clair's daughter who discovered Grimm as a wild dirty boy when he was 14 and she was younger. They are in love with each other but that love is undeclared. There are three warriors who are competing for Jillian's hand in marriage. Grim feels he is not worthy of her and encourages her to marry one of the other two suiters. The ending of this book ties up lots of misconceptions held by Grimm towards his father. The whole series is worth reading.

Solid romance from a relatively new writer. This is her second book and much better than her more recent works. It is a highland romance with some supernatural aspects.

The second book in the Highlander series. Just finished it last night. It was quite good. I think I liked the first one better. Grimm is a wonderful character. I enjoyed is self struggle to come to terms with what he is and how he views himself. I thought the last third of the book really picked up actionwise. Enjoy it is good, quick read.

A little slow to get started. It was hard to like "Jillian" at first. "Quinn was a gem of a character, but "Grimm" lacked depth. There was an interesting twist toward the end however.

Wonderful book I couldn't put it down. I can't wait to read the rest of the series. I love it when characters from previous books are included in the storyline. Just because it's a new story doesn't mean you've forgotten about the characters.

To Tame a Highland Warrior by: Karen Marie Moning was a really good book. I really liked this hero's style when he was teasing and bullying the heroine. Mean as he was there was never a doubt that he adored her. I think it was neat how even the heroine could kind of tell. Even though she couldn't really put her finger on why, she kept believing she had a chance with him even though he rejected her point blank over and over again. I can't get over how good this writer is.

A Woman's Tender Touch

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.

A Warrior's Steely Heart

Why had he run from her so many years before? And why 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 alter. She was the only woman who could tame the beast that raged within him -- even as deadly enemies plotted to destroy them both ...
