Donna Grant Intro:
Happy Sunday Monsters and Addicts! Book Monster Reviews and LITERAL ADDICTION are very pleased to welcome Donna Grant back to our sites today.
Donna Grant is the award winning author of more than twenty novels spanning multiple genres of romance – Scottish Medieval, historical, dark fantasy, time travel, erotic, and paranormal.
Donna was born and raised in Texas but loves to travel. Her adventures have taken her throughout the United States as well as to Jamaica, Mexico, and Scotland. Growing up on the Texas/Louisiana border, Donna’s Cajun side of the family taught her the “spicy” side of life while her Texas roots gave her two-steppin’ and bareback riding.
Her childhood dream was to become a professional ballet dancer and study under the amazing Mikhail Baryshnikov. Though she never got to meet Baryshnikov, she did make it to New York City and performed in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Later, Donna’s love of the romance genre and the constant stories running through her head prompted her to sit down and write her first book. Once that book was completed, there was no turning back.
Despite the deadlines and her voracious reading, Donna still manages to keep up with her two young children, three cats, and one long haired Chihuahua. She’s blessed with a proud, supportive husband who’s learned to cook far more than frozen chicken nuggets.
Donna sold her first book in November 2005 while displaced from Hurricane Rita, a storm that destroyed portions of the Texas Gulf Coast. Since then, Donna has sold novels and novellas to both electronic and print publishers. Her books include several complete series such as THE DRUIDS GLEN, THE SHIELDS, THE ROYAL CHRONICLES, the SISTERS OF MAGIC,DARK SWORD and the new upcoming DARK WARRIORS series.

Gwynn Austin has no idea why her father has disappeared on a mysterious trip to Scotland.

And when she discovers her own link to Scotland, she’ll have to trust her heart to help lead her...
Propelled through time by powerful Druid Magic, Logan Hamilton uses his immortality and powers of the god inside him to help prevent the awakening of an ancient evil in the modern world.

Together, Logan and Gywnn must fight for their love—before a demon from the past destroys them both…

Guest Post by Donna Grant
Hmm…Highlanders. Just saying the word makes me envision muscular, alpha men who are bold and daring. Seductive and tempting. Rugged and roguish. Dangerous and desirable.
What makes Highlanders so very. . . enticing? For me, it’s part of the people they were/are. They are one with their land, as few are. Their love of Scotland runs deep in their blood as is seen by their bloody – and very violent – history defending it.
Yet it’s also because there is something amazingly appealing about a man in a kilt. Maybe it’s a getting to see those muscular legs or knowing what they are – or aren’t, as the case goes – wearing beneath those tartans. J
But I think its because there’s a look a Highlander has that says he’s reckless enough and strong enough for whatever comes his way. Whether it’s defending their land or the ones they love, Highlanders are the essence of everything a champion embodies. And everything I love to read about in a book.
There’s nothing I love more than a brawny man in a kilt with a sword ready to defend what is his.
What is it that appeals to you about Highlanders?
I’ll be giving away a copy of the sixth book in my Dark Sword series, DARKEST HIGHLANDER to a commenter. So talk to me. J
Look for MIDNIGHT’S LOVER the the second book in the new Dark Warriors series (a continuation of the Dark Sword series), to be released on June 26.
DARK WARRIORS, Book 2
Release Date: June 26, 2012
Driven by the fierce god within him, highlander Ian Kerr is sworn to fight for the land he loves—and the brother he lost. But when he’s transported four centuries into the future, he finds himself fighting his own desires—for a beautiful, bewitching woman who could hold a warrior spellbound…
Danielle Buchanan has heard the legends. She has felt the power of Druid blood in her veins. But she has never known a man as fearsome—or as haunted—as the warrior Ian. With her magic, Dani must help him fight an ancient evil. With her heart, she must join him in his quest. But only with her soul can she free him from his curse…and seal their fates together.
