From Goodreads: An alluring laird

He was known throughout the kingdom as Hawk, legendary predator of the battlefield and the boudoir. No woman could refuse his touch, but no woman ever stirred his heart – until a vengeful fairy tumbled Adrienne de Simone out of modern-day Seattle and into medieval Scotland. Captive in a century not her own, entirely too bold, too outspoken, she was an irresistible challenge to the sixteenth-century rogue. Coerced into a marriage with Hawk, Adrienne vowed to keep him at arm’s length – but his sweet seduction played havoc with her resolve.

A prisoner in time

She had a perfect “no” on her perfect lips for the notorious laird, but Hawk swore she would whisper his name with desire, begging for the passion he longed to ignite within her. Not even the barriers of time and space would keep him from winning her love. Despite her uncertainty about following the promptings of her own passionate heart, Adrienne’s reservations were no match for Hawk’s determination to keep her by his side….

Bought on Audible
Audio Rating: 3.5
Story: 4.0

What I Loved: Adrienne was such a perfect woman for a man like the Handsome Hawk. I laughed so many times while listening to this book, pretty sure the people around me thought I was a bit crazy. It really was just such a fantastic combination of romance and humor. Really the best part is that this is a Paranormal romance but the two leads are perfectly human. It really was a great twist on the genre.

What I Liked: How the Fey played into the story and getting a glimpse into the couple that started the Guardians that we see in the Fever series. I actually think reading that series first added a little extra oomph to this book!

Complaints: None

Audio Specific Review: Narrated by Phil Gigante (who was the male voice in the last 2 of the Fever Series) and he did an excellent job on Hawk’s and the rest of the male voices. It took awhile to get use to the voice that he used for Adrienne though, it was a little to high pitched for my taste. Still a very fun listen and Phil has a knack for pacing (not to fast, not to slow)!

Why I gave it a 3.75: The story was very strong and the audio was pretty good also. It was fun, sweet, and full of great Historical moments that I love!

Who I would recommend this too: Historical and Paranormal Romance readers. This romance has a bit of both!
