Overview

Fallon McLeod has gifts any warrior would covet—fierce strength, unmatched skill, even immortality. But those gifts have come at a price that puts everyone he loves at risk. Only when his brother, Quinn, is taken captive does Fallon leave the seclusion of his Highland home to seek the king's aid. And though every woman at court would gladly be his for the asking, one alone causes desire to roar to life within him: beautiful, mysterious Larena Monroe.

Rumors swirl around the castle about "The McLeod" but Larena knows the truth. Like Fallon, Larena is searching for a way to vanquish the evil Druid who wants to wreak havoc on earth. Drawn to Fallon in spite of her fear, she surrenders to a passion that shocks them both with its raw intensity.

FORBIDDEN HIGHLANDER by Donna Grant is a spellbinding historical romance set in 1603 Edinburgh, Scotland. It is the second in A Dark Sword Novel, but can easily be read as a stand alone. Some of the characters from the first book Dangerous Highlander reappear in this one also.It has danger, romance, sensuality, secrets, passion, demons, druids, an extremely evil witch who is after more power, dark magic, find their destinies, true love and a battle to overcome an ancient curse. The hero, Fallon is the eldest of the MacLeod brothers( Fallon, Lucan, and Quinn). We meet Lucan in Dangerous Highlander. Fallon is strong, handsome, is immortal due to his demon, drank to much to try to keep his demon at bay,is battling guilt from not being able to save his family,and falls for the beautiful Larena.The heroine, Larena,is beautiful, has a dark secret,fears for her life, needs the MacLeod clan to help her. For Larena is also has a demon, a female demon one of few, if not the only one known. She holds the secret to how to vanquish the evil druid who wishes to wreak havoc on earth and mankind.Sparks fly between Fallon and Larena for she is able to open his heart and his soul. The story is about Fallon and Larena and their quest to find true love. I would highly recommend this book especially if you enjoy romance, passion, dark, sensual and enchanting reading. It is fast paced page turning and will keep you on the edge of yours seat. I am waiting for the next installment to learn about the younger brother Quinn, who has been captured by the evil witch and the MacLeods out to free and destroy the evil witch. This book was received for review and details can be found at St. Martins Paperbacks and My Book Addiction and More.

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 truly loved this one and many of the elements of the story had me captivated. I have recently fell in love with Grant's historical paranormal series, and this series is so unique and different and not what you expect, in fact I might lean toward a bit more fantasy. In Forbidden Highlander we have three brothers, who are immortal, and each of them have a beast inside of them, with godlike gifts. Fallon's brother has been taking hostage by their nemesis and he is desperate to find a way to free him, the key one woman...Larena Monroe. Larena is in hiding, from their mutual enemy and seeks refuge from being on the run every day of her life. What she doesn't expect to find is her future mate, a man to love and stand by her side. This story pretty much starts off after the first book left off, and I would highly recommend you read this series in order. the first book really sets the tone for the series, and even though Grant explains the background information, I feel you really need the first book to understand more fully what is happening in this story. i really liked the various qualities that made this story a true gem. Donna Grants has such a compelling storytelling ability, and draws you into the story in ways you don't expect. There is no dull moment in this book, and I was pretty much at the edge from beginning to end. What I truly loved was seeing the brothers and the complexity of the plot that works its way into the story, we see some very intense moments and boy did I just love this one almost as much as the first book. What a wild ride of adventure, dangerous villains, plenty of steamy action and sword fighting, and a powerful romance to steal your heart.

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.

The second book in this series is just as good as the first book. Too much explicit sex, but I just skim over that and read the story. Story keeps your interest. Bought and read this and the 3rd book in series the same day. Excellent read.
