Donna Grant - Dangerous Highlander Forbidden Highlander

First in a breathtaking new series, the bold and passionate Lucan MacLeod—one of three brothers cursed by dark magic for eternity—is driven by desire for the one woman he dare not let himself possess… He is magnificently strong—and dangerously seductive. One of the fiercest of his clan, Lucan MacLeod is a legend among warriors, inspiring fear in man and woman alike. For three hundred years, he has locked himself away from the world, hiding the vengeful god imprisoned in his soul. But then, a young lass caught in a raging storm awakens his deepest impulses…and darkest desires. Cara doesn’t believe the rumors about MacLeod castle—until the majestic Highland warrior appears like a fiery vision in the storm, pulling her into his powerful arms, and into his world of magic and Druids. An epic war between good and evil is brewing. And Lucan must battle his all-consuming attraction for Cara—or surrender to the flames of a reckless, impossible love that threatens to destroy them both…
Fallon MacLeod has gifts any warrior would covet - fierce strength, unmatched skill, even immortality. But those gifts 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 women 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. But Larena dares not hope for more - not when she holds a secret that could turn her fiery Highland love against her forever...
Donna Grant is a growing author in the book world. After finishing Dangerous Highlander and Forbidden Highlander I felt like I had spent the day at an amusement park. Some things I loved, some not so much. Parts made my heart pound with the story, some caused me to make a face and raise an eyebrow. The foundation of the plot is captivating and the potential it has to entice the reader into the pages with the formulated world she has created could be endless. The HEA couples of each book were a step ahead of the rest of the characters in their development yet on the flip side the evil character wasn't given any dimension at all. Staying hid in her mountain and sending her servants out to do her dirty work, along with a head of hair that does weird and creepy things is about all it tells about her. After getting off the roller coaster, as a whole, the stories were up and down yet some of the twists and turns make me hopeful for the future of the next installment of The Dark Sword series.
My Rating - 3
