Editorial Reviews


5 Hearts! I definitely recommend Dangerous Highlander, even to skeptics of paranormal romance - you just may fall in love with the MacLeods.” ―The Romance Reader

5 Angels! Recommended Read! Forbidden Highlander blew me away.” ―Fallen Angel Reviews

5 Tombstones! Another fantastic series that melds the paranormal with the historical life of the Scottish highlander in this arousing and exciting adventure. The men of MacLeod castle are a delicious combination of devoted brother, loyal highlander Lord and demonic God that ooze sex appeal and inspire some very erotic daydreams as they face their faults and accept their fate.” ―Bitten By Books on the Dark Sword series

4 Stars! Grant creates a vivid picture of Britain centuries after the Celts and Druids tried to expel the Romans, deftly merging magic and history. The result is a wonderfully dark, delightfully well-written tale. Readers will eagerly await the next Dark Sword book.” ―Romantic Times BOOKreviews

4 Hoots! These are some of the hottest brothers around in paranormal fiction.” ―Nocturne Romance Reads on the Dark Sword series

“Totally captivating and entertaining...Cursed by dark magic, the immortal MacLeod brothers are a force to be reckoned with.” ―Fresh Fiction on the Dark Sword series

I have been infatuated with Broc ever since Wicked Highlander, when Quinn MacLeod was abducted by Deirdre and taken to Cairn Toul, the mountain where she kills Druids and uses her black magic to unleash the gods inside the Highlanders. The wyrran and Warriors gather there, waiting for the time when Deirdre will send her army to destroy the world. Broc played the good and bad guy so well, you never knew which side he was really on until recently. Broc has Poraxus, the God of Manuipulation bound to him and is the only warrior with wings and able to fly. His power is that he can locate anyone, anywhere.

Broc has been watching over Sonya and her sister Anice ever since he found them as babies and rescued them. He was one of Deirdre's Warriors back then so he hid them in a safe place where Deirdre could never find them. Being that Sonya and her sister are Druids, Deirdre would kill them to steal their life force. Broc has secretly been in love with Sonya ever since she became a woman but is determined to stay away from her. He believes himself cursed because any woman he has ever cared for has died and he's determined to protect Sonya from his curse. When Broc finds out that Sonya is gone from the castle he sets out to find her before Deirdre does.

When the last book "Shadow Highlander" ended, Sonya's life was turned upside down. Her healing powers have been failing her and her sister Anice was murdered by Deirdre's wyrran. Grief stricken over the death of her sister and heartbroken over Broc's harsh reaction, Sonya leaves the safety of MacLeod Castle and runs into the forest. Injured and not able to heal herself because of her failing magic, Sonya is in grave danger.

When Broc finds her, Sonya is near death with an infection from a cut on her hand.

This was a hard read because it was so much like the previous books - there wasn't really anything new. Talk about a plot that goes nowhere - six books later and we're back to where we started.

Deirdre is back in Cairn Toul killing Mie (Druids with good magic) to feed her Drough (black) magic. She still wants to take over the world after she releases the warriors' gods, and kill or capture the MacLeod brothers. Even with all the sacrificing and blood letting poor Deirdre has been turned into almost a comedic character easily thwarted and her dialogue makes her sound like she's a dimwitted lackey instead of an evil mastermind.

Hero Broc wasn't much of a hero. The "woe is me" angst was there but I didn't really care considering how many people he murdered for Deirdre. The clinker for me was Broc and his association with Anice - heroine Sonya's sister. While out on a murderous hunt for Druids to fulfill Deirdre's blood thirsty magic, Broc found two little girls - Anice and Sonya - and took them to another Druid village to hide them. Later he would come back to check up on them. Broc is caught spying on Sonya by Anice and she puts the moves on him. He knows he should push her away but desperate for another's touch instead took her as his lover while his gaze was on Sonya. He admits it was wrong but his pitiful excuse - "I'm just a man" doesn't wash since women for coin were readily available. Broc is also concerned that he is cursed because every non family female he's ever gotten close to dies. Evidently Anice was expendable because he had no problem getting close to her even though he says it's Sonya who's always made his heart beat.

Heroine Sonya is a pity party waiting for a place to happen.

Broc story is here!! I suppose I could just stop there.. Broc's story Darkest Highlander is the sixth in Dona Grant's Dark Sword Series and by far her most compelling. It was so intense, I was forced to put it down and walk away on a regular basis. Now, I know that sounds just wrong but for me.. when something is so gripping, when you are never quite sure what is going to happen next and when you are held on the edge of suspense.. to me I have to put it down and walk away.. or I go nuts. This was one of those stories.. I spent most of my time while reading this book on the edge of my seat.. chewing my nails and wonder what was going to happen next.

Broc has always been my favorite, he was broody, intense and BLUE.. well when his god took over he's blue and of course Broc is the only warrior with wings. And there is just something sexy about wings. I wonder what I would do if I actually met someone with wings? They are just so very sexy in books.

Broc spent centuries of his life, once his god was unbound as a spy in Deidre's fortress under the mountain. Forced to round up druids and deliver them to Deidre he never really thought he would find a way out. Then when the Warriors chose to stand together against her, Broc stood with them. Finally able to share his true feelings and loyalties.. he is a true asset to the Warriors.

Sonya, the strongest of the Druids had a crisis of faith and lost the use of her magic. Feeling lost, alone and just a little betrayed she flees the safety of the castle and strikes out on her own. I am not quite sure why such a practical character would do something quite this stupid but I kind of liked it. So many smart women find themselves doing stupid things then later asking themselves what the heck was I thinking?
