Kiss of the Highlander

Kiss of the Highlander by Karen Marie Moning (read by Phil Gigante)

I purchased the audiobook on CD from Barnes & Noble.

My review:

Continuing her tales of Scottish druid lairds, KMM this time brings readers the story of Drustan MacKeltar, a laird enchanted into a 500-year sleep. When Drustan is accidentally awakened in modern-day Scotland by a startled girl from Arizona, neither of them can believe it.

While formulaic, the Highlander Saga books are thoroughly entertaining and continue to improve. The humor and self-awareness of these romances keep them entertaining, and unexpected solutions add interest to otherwise predictable story lines. Phil Gigante continues to do a brilliant job with narration and with the male characters, and to struggle with voicing the female ones. Still, a delightful audio vacation to a fantasy world of good coffee, impressive castles, and hunks in kilts.

Stars: 4

Runability: 4.5
