The second McLeod brother historical fantasy is a terrific tal

The McLeod brothers (Fallon, Lucan and Quinn) were descendents from a cadre of warriors created by Druids to repel the Romans from Scotland and England. For three centuries the siblings hid from Deirdre who wants their magic. However in 1603, Lucan meets his soulmate (see Dangerous Highlander), but Quinn was captured by their enemy.

In Edinburgh Fallon meets and falls in love with Lady Larena Monroe. He is shocked to realize she is a warrior; the only female he ever met. She accompanies Fallon to the McLeod estate, a haven for warriors and Druids. As Deirdre assaults the stronghold, Fallon plans to rescue his brother, but first proposes to his beloved. She wants to say yes, but knows she conceals from her beloved a dark secret that will turn his love to loathing.

The second McLeod brother historical fantasy is a terrific tale with a nice twist that readers will know is coming yet Donna Grant makes the spin fun to follow. The story line is fast-paced and is more than just a middle book as Fallon's fate is decided. With Quinn still held captive by the obsessed Deirdre, sub-genre fans will be impatient for his Dark Sword legend as the audience anticipates his confrontation with his much stronger jailer.

I was waiting for this book to be released and had it marked on my calendar. I just loved the first book of the series, Dangerous Highlander, but after reading Forbidden Highlander--I liked it Not so Much. I just could not find the plot. The eldest brother is Fallon and this is his story. We first met Fallon in "Dangerous Highlander" and he was lost in his drinking, sloth and self-pity. Unfortunately, he was more interesting in the first book than this one. Boy, that's harsh, but I think I said that because I am so disappointed and had high expectations for this book. In Forbidden Highlander, Fallon meets and falls in love with the good chick, cleans and rebuilds the castle, thought about his brother Quinn currently held captive by the evil chick, and that was about it. I kept asking myself, What is the point of this plot? Where is the plot? I was left plot-less.

Nonetheless, I have the third book in the series, "Wicked Highlander" marked on my calendar! Donna Grant is a very good writer, and I'm hoping that the third book is just as good or better than the first one. I still recommend reading this book because of the writing.

    Good book but I am so tired and irritated of paying 7.99 plus do

    Good book but I am so tired and irritated of paying 7.99 plus dollars for an ebook when the details claim it's 352 pages then finding out it only has 221! It's not my intent to attack this author but it does make me hesitant to buy any more when comparable authors books are 100+ more pages. Sorry, just had to get that off my chest. That being said Grant's books are an enjoyable read, I just wish they were either less expensive or longer.
