Goodreads Summary:
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. But Larena dares not hope for more—not when she holds a secret that could turn her fiery Highland love against her forever…

I knew after I read the first book I was going to love Fallon's book or at least I hoped I would. I love the tortured hero(to be honest not too many types of heroes I don't like but the tortured hero is right up at the very top for me.) Something about these men that make me wanna just reach in the book and hug them(if they would let me.)

Larena was the perfect match for Fallon in my opinion, She is tough but at the same time, she had trust issues and afraid to give her heart. I loved how they worked through both their problems to be together.

I do believe this is my favorite out of the series so far, but then that might change once I read Quinn's book which is next. These books can be read as stand alone but in my opinion it makes it better to read in order. So if you haven't read any Donna Grant books I highly suggest you do.

Yes she has, I did like Lucan and Cara very much but Fallon tugged at my heart strings. I see Quinn doing that too- he is the most tortured soul I believe. I just started his book.

Okay, I don't know what my deal is but I haven't read Highlander books yet. But the tortured heroes do sound really appealing. Thanks for the quick review. It definitely got me thinking about what I'm missing out on.

@Denise LOL yes oh my is exactly how I think when I read these books. Glad I could make you smile I know these highlanders sure do ;).

@Missie oh you should, I never read too many highlanders until I started my blog and now I am so glad I did, these have a mixture of paranormal and historical romance.
