From Goodreads: AN HONORABLE LAIRD…

Laird Connall MacInness was born to a clan that for centuries has been charged with the guarding of the sacred Druids. ‘Tis a duty he has always met with a willing heart, until the day his sister, a Druid priestess, goes missing, and the very Druids he has protected refuse to help him find the last remaining member of his family. Then a 300 year old prophecy places a Druid priestess in his hands for safekeeping. ‘Tis the chance at revenge that he’s been waiting for, but is he willing to pay the cost his revenge will demand–the loss of his mate and the future of Scotland?

A WILLING LASS…

Glenna MacNeil wants only to be free, to find the purpose of her life. When she is told to look for the dark laird that would free her, she eagerly goes with the powerful laird who fights her clan, not realizing she has set in motion events that will change the course of history.

First thought when finished: I will be getting the rest of the series and checking out other books by Donna Grant!

What I Loved: This was a brilliant mix of Historical Romance with a little magic.  I haven’t read a Druid based book in ages and found myself fascinated with bits of druid history that Donna Grant included. I loved all of the characters and really looking forward to revisiting them.  Glenna and Connall were both strong but I loved how Glenna was open to learning all she could about her Druid calling.  She showed amazing gumption for someone who had been locked away most of her life.

What I Liked: The side characters were fantastic.  I am really looking forward to the next book where we get to meet Fiona (especially since that is my bar name) and get more of my favorite side character: the mysterious Gregor.  I just adored him!

What made me go Huh?: There were a few moments in that the formatting in the book was a little off so it would jump from one conversation to another and you had to re-read it to sort it out.  It wasn’t a huge distraction but you should know it is there so you don’t think you skipped pages LOL.

Final Thought:  I like Donna Grant’s writing and will be checking out her other books and of course the rest in this series.

    Glad you liked it so much. I read one of her Magic books a few weeks ago, and was really disappointed with it. Not sure if I will ever read another.

    I hate it when formatting is off. Draws me out, but I can deal if I have to… ;)Plus, oh loving that cover. Okay, Fiona… pass the liquor!

    Side characters can make or break a story, huh! I love it when I meet the kind that your just dying to know more about.

    Yeah I normally avoid novels with half naked men on them, (even when they look tempting) but this one sounds so good. I think Im going to have to download it and see if it could be my cup of tea……:)

    Hello sexy Scotsmen! I'm always drawn to the mysterious/dark/damaged side characters, so I think I'll be very interested in Gregor's story as well. Is it already out, or do we have to wait for his story?
