Reprinted Edition

Writing together for the first time, New York Times bestselling authors Lynsay Sands and Hannah Howell present the darkly passionate story of two men sworn to conquer the hunger that pounds in their blood—and the women who may be their only salvation. . .

When Darkness Falls. . .

Cathal MacNachton and Connall MacAdie are cousins bound by far more than blood ties and the rugged Highland landscape their clan calls home. The ancient curse of their ancestry has fated them to live by night with an unquenchable thirst that neither can tame. The only thing that can save their souls is marriage to Outsiders—mortals whose untainted blood will weaken the curse in their children and break the chains of fear that have made their clan a breed apart.

Bridget Callan and Eva Caxton are the women who will shape the clan's destiny. Marriage to these strange and mysterious men will rescue each of them from desperate circumstances—and draw them into a web of danger, desire, and intrigue. . .

Library Journal
With the current popularity of "creatures of the night" and all things Scottish, this pair of linked stories scores a double hit as it takes two not-quite-mortal Highland cousins determined to break the ancient curse that binds their inbred clan to darkness and bloodlust and brings them each the one thing that can accomplish this a mortal bride. But there are those in the clan who like things the way they are; and as the cousins make wedding plans, others plot something far more sinister. Well-matched protagonists find purpose and love in these fast-paced, creative tales, which feature flashes of humor, unbridled passion, heartwarming tenderness, and differing yet complementary styles. Contributors to the paranormal anthology His Immortal Embrace, veteran romance writers Howell (Highland Warrior) lives in West Newbury, MA, and Sands (Tall, Dark, and Hungry) lives in England.

I love reading books about vampires and books about Highland men. This book has it all and I absolutely LOVED it! It has suspense, romance (boy does it) and some surprises. I would definitely recommend this book. I am planning on getting the rest of the series.

Cathal MacNachton is from a clan of vampires and is seeking a bride who is an Outsider (not of his clan) to strengthen his family line. It has been over 40 years since the clan has had children born to their clan. He finds a bride in Bridget Callan who was rescued from thieves and murders from Cathals uncle Jankyn, who delivers her to Cathal. Cathal woos Bridget (who is not entirely human herself, but has Feline blood in her and some special qualities that go with it) and makes her is bride. Others in his clan, the Purebloods, are not happy with this revelation and try to crush this growing romance...but to no avail. Connall MacAdie is from a clan of vampires and is Cathal's cousin. He also seeks an Outsider bride of his own and finds Eva Caxton. A lady he met at court one time while her brother was trying to "sell" her to the highest bidder, even though she didn't have dowry. Connall offers for her and Eva is brought back to the clan. She is welcomed with open arms by his clan, but Eva feels like she needs to be valued and tries to do things not necessarily good for the clan people, them being vampires. Connalls nephew tries to thwart their love by attacking and almost killing Connall so he could take over the clan. Both stories were well written, funny, loving, and the characters were perfect together! I look foward to more of these two authors writing together and for their own stories as well. Highly recommend!!!

I very much enjoyed Ms. Howells portion of the book. Bridgit was charming and intelligent, as well as a fierce fighter. Ms. Sands potion of the book however was so hard to read I would put it downand leave it for days at a time. She presented Eva as a bumbling fool to stupid to walk out the door without falling down the stairs. I cant stand reading stories where the authors make the characters suffer one humiliation after another. Almost bullying by proxy. So as stated 1st half well worth the read,second half only if you like to read about humiliated fools

Reviewed by Karen Pirnot for Readers' Favorite The Eternal Highlander is written by Lynsay Sands and Hannah Howell. Being part of the Vampire Romance series, it introduces the reader to Bridget, who is captured on her way to spend time with her cousin at the clan court. Cathal MacNachton is the leader of his clan, a clan that hides deep, dark secrets which have alienated them from the surrounding clans. They are night hunters and their prey is a source of fear for all of the nearby residents. When Bridget is captured by the MacNachtons, she is initially afraid of their intentions. But the minute she meets Cathal, she feels an attraction and a bond which seems to free her from her fears. The second part of the story involves another Highland bride named Eva Caxton, who is chosen to wed Cathal's cousin Connall MacAdie, also the leader of his clan. They hold the same secrets as the MacNachton clan and Eva has severe reservations about her fate, partly because her brother had wed her in exchange for money. I found both of the lead women to be spunky and likable characters who seemed fully capable of fending for themselves in less-than-desirable situations. Likewise, their counterparts - the clan Lords - were appealing in their understanding of their brides as well as their obvious sexuality. There is plenty of steamy sex in the novel and those attracted to vampire stories will certainly be salivating with each chapter. I did find the second section a bit redundant but realized it was essential to establishing the groundwork for future novels. The book is a captivating fantasy-romance read.

Double Your Pleasure.......................................................................... Two stories about to cousins trying to find brides to please not only themselves but their clans. Tough going under the best of circumstances and since they're both vampires ---well let's just say women are not lining up around the block. I'm not usually into the paranormal stuff but both stories were well done. The stories are about 125 pages each. Nice read when your looking for something short and light.
