From the Inside Flap
Only her love could gentle his savage soul--
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....

The book really didn't get interesting until about half way through. At this point, Grimm and Jillian ride off to face their real threat, the McKanes. After wasting half the book on the struggle between Jillian and Grimm, Moning glosses over the fight between the McKanes and the Berserkers. There are a number of questions left unanswered, several sections I felt could have been expanded on and the ending was a let down. Not that they don't win, but all you have is a Grimm saves Jillian, then they beat the McKanes, literally that is pretty much what she wrote. While I am not wanting bloody details, I would have like the climax to have been a little more climactic.
While this book is not directly related to the Dark Highlander's series, references to Adam Black are made. I do not know if Moning plans to tie the Berserkers into the final battle she seems to be building to in the Dark Highlander series, but it could be an interesting addition.
Grimm and Jillian are quite the pair. Grimm is a Berserker with a past that haunts him dearly. Jillian is as bull headed as him but she is the one who found Grimm as a child and helped give him a "normal" life. Where their feelings for each other are concerned, both are bull-headed. Hard to get, on both sides, is putting it mildly. Pretty much a Beauty and the Beast plot. I think that gives enough away right there. Story wise, this was my favorite. Made me want to really read more on Berserker's...and fine ice blue eyes. Man wise...NOT EVEN CLOSE! Excellent story. Strong characters. And leaves you wanting to know more.
DEFINITELY READ THE OTHERS!!!
