I recently finished Dangerous Highlander by Donna Grant, the first novel in her Dark Sword series. Cara had lived with the death of her parents and di..Show More »d not remember much of what had happened when they were killed. Raised by the nuns, she had just turned eighteen and was about to become a nun herself. She was not a member of the local clan and knew that love and marriage would never be an option for her. That is until Lucan MacLeod saved her. From this point on, Cara and Lucan begin to form a tentative bond. As their relationship grows, so too do they begin to divulge their deepest secrets to each other. Unfortunately, they are not able to find peace. Cara and the brothers are all being hunted, and it becomes evident that they face a dangerous war. I really enjoyed this book and am looking forward to the next stories about the three brothers. If you like your Highlanders with a bit of magic and paranormal twist, you will enjoy this series. Lots of sizzle too!
Once you start on this Series you will find it hard to stop listening as they catch your imagination as D.G. begins to share with us her fantasy world..Show More » set in the Highlands in the early 1600's about the hunky handsome and very fit MacLeod brothers.
Firstly, this series should absolutely be listened to in order as they are leading towards the ultimate battle between good v evil - the MacLeod brothers are all Warriors who hold a part of the God of Revenge inside them which can turn them into raging fighting beasts as they are constantly attacked by the leader of the evil Druids (called droughs) Deidre and her minions. Good Druids are called mie's who can be turned into droughs by Deidre to be used in her army intent on world domination and obliteration.
This is Fallon's story, now it's not as intense as others, but still a 'must' in the series however it's more of a stepping stone to book 3 when they try to rescue Quinn who has been captured by Deidre. They are 'adult' listening books and get more so further into the series and there's great characters with instant chemistry between them who have to battle to survive.
Worth a credit? Definitely YES but please don't be put off the series if you find this listen slightly lacking in action compared to the first book - it does have it's share but much much more is to come in book 3.
Hopefully, you will have already listened to the first two books in this fantastic series which, in my opinion, just keeps getting better and better a..Show More »bout the HHB (hunky highland brothers) so you already know the background of the series but if not then I suggest you please go to book 1.
This finds Quinn (one of the HHB) trapped by Deidre and this story is totally addictive from the start as the dark but also sensual brilliant plot and sub plots unfold as we journey through this action packed listen as it gives us magic, passion, brotherhood, torment, faith and sooooo much more. It is an 'adult only' listen which only adds to the story as love can be found even in the most darkest of places.
Worth a credit? ABSOLUTELY it's a 'can't stop listen' ...... and the good news is the series will continue as more Warriors join forces with the MacLeod brothers.
What's the perfect recipe for a 5 star paranormal romance?
Take a handful of HHW (hunky highland warriors) then add bags of magic and action..Show More » in equal measure, followed by scoops of tension and torturous sensual romance and a good sprinkling of great characters, blend in some spice then whip them all together by a gifted author and finally make it 'hot'. Then for the topping add the voice of a great narrator and hey presto what have you got? - this fantastic awesome and addictive listen.
Worth a credit? Well my fellow P/R fans that would be a big fat Y E S and they just keep getting better and better. If you loved Lords of The Underworld or the Black Dagger Brotherhood then this series comes under the heading of 'must have' too.
I have been so into this series that I've listened to them one after the other - and that's a lot of time to invest in a series but I haven't been dis..Show More »appointed at all. They are all a perfect merging of the paranormal historical romantic and supernatural.
I've said it all before in my other reviews of the previous books in the series but just to recap - brilliant paranormal characters, sexy delicious HHW (hunky highland warriors), awesome and exciting sensuous plot and lots of sub plots that is well written and well narrated.
They do get slightly repetitive if you listen to them back to back like I have but this way I don't forget what's what and who's who and they are all sooooo de lish ous. All the books seem to have the same basic theme - Warrior falls for woman but he fights his attraction until 'something' hits the fan - however, each book has so much more too as they take the story further along to it's final ending (whenever that is).
Worth a credit? I have now spent 5 credits and I don't regret any of them - so that would be a YES.
This is my 6th review of this fantastic paranormal romance series and I have said it all before - but if you're like me and love paranormal/romance th..Show More »en you're looking for:-
An interesting rollercoaster paranormal plot and sub plots. A passionate and sexy love story. Great characters you can love and hate. Thrills, magic and emotions. Some sexy handsome hunks. A creative gifted author who paints for us an imaginary fantasy world. Last, but not least, a narrator who breathes life into each and every character.
Well, this book and the whole series, has all of the above and much more........ as this book and the series finishes with time travel and all are brought into the 21st century, the Dark Warrior series now starts.
Worth a credit? I have already listened to 2 books in the new series (as the Dark Sword series were not all released and then out of order) and I'm now going to relisten to the 2 Dark Warrior books - I've now used 10 credits and I don't regret any - so that would be a YES. (((*_*)))
