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 all but 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.

Every time I finish one of the books in this series, I always think “that was my favorite!” Seriously, this one is my favorite. It was so good. I just love Adam Black. He’s shown his face in a few of the previous books, and it was so nice to hear his story. They’ve all been pretty sweet, but this one was the sweetest. I was so giddy by the end.

I already had an interest in Adam, so there was no problem with me finding him likable. Gabby, however, was new. I loved her. I feel like the women in the books just get better with each book. Gabby was hilarious, and also pretty sweet. Like the others before it, this one is full of sweet romance, endangered lives, and some hot sex. It also features a cameos made by the MacKeltar brothers and their wives. This one just has a little more fairy action (okay, a lot of sinfully sexy fairy action). As it turns out, the darkest fey prince is the sweetest Highlander of the series. This one is highly recommended. It will be way for fun for you if you read all the ones before it, but it can still work as a stand-alone.

Phil Gigante, once again, rocked it with his brogue. I love it! It makes the experience so much more fun. And again, I’m impressed with his ability to swap accents quickly (which is well-displayed in a scene with the Mackeltar brothers, their wives, Adam, and Gabby, all of which have different voices and accents). He’s most definitely one of my favorite voice actors.

This book contains profanity, a tiny bit of violence, and explicit sexual content. 18 and older, please!
