Review of Forbidden Highlander Releases on Tuesday, May 25th
Oh where to begin on this one! First let me say that I loved this book. Donna’s writing is easygoing and magical, it guides you seamlessly through the story of which you hope will never end.
In Forbidden Highlander we are focused on one particular MacLeod brother, Fallon, the eldest. Since the current capture of his brother Quinn, the focus on the future of his clan and their lands has reached great importance, enough to have him leave the sanctuary of the MacLeod castle for the first time in centuries. In efforts to re-claim his family’s lands, he travels to see the king and seek his aid on the matter. While at court he tries to distance himself from the crowds and gossip that runs rampant there, only having his single task to focus on; that is until he sees a vision of all his desires from across the room of the great hall.
Larena Monroe is at court and has been for some time now. She is by everyone’s accounts only a lady, and there to rub elbows with those of the court. However, this guise she’s created is merely to seek out those who have power and most importantly, information. She is not what she seems. Larena is wanted by all available men at court, and uses her beauty to get answers but nothing more then that. She has no interest in these men that fawn upon her. Larena is there to find out information to save her, and protect the secrets she alone has been destined to guard. Weary of the formality of court, she tires of this charade and decides it might be time to leave… until she see’s him. Dark and powerful, skin of sun kissed gold, he towers above all the men around him. He has a commanding presence and is dressed in the ways of a Highlander. This stranger is raw, sexual and lithe as he stalks the outer edges of the great hall; and he is staring right at her.
You won’t be able to stop reading this tale of adventure, action and thick sexual tension.
Fallon and Larena’s paths will cross while they embark on a journey to save lives, save their loved ones and perhaps save someones soul. The rippling energy in the air, made of desire and aprehension can be literally cut with a knife when they are near. Neither of them is sure, affraid that they can give the most important thing of all, trust.

I am an Avid reader and mother of 3 adult children. Now 7 years after creating my first blog, Demon Lover's Book & More; book blogging has become my passion. Creating www.GotFiction.com blog has allowed me the opportunity to review great books, make wonderful friends and meet amazing authors.
Five stars are like six-pack abs on a really tan, hunky guy not wearing much. They make us drool, we stroke them (the books, not the guys! - sometimes the guys...) and want to make sweet, sweet love to them. Five stars is the hottest, we mean, highest honor.
Four stars is a total hunkalicious of burning love, but maybe we didn't like his hair for some reason. We still think he's hot, and we're still going to recommend him, we mean, the book, to readers because it's a damn fine ass, we mean book.
Three stars = that awkward guy at the party. He's cute and you know he's cute, and if you look at him the right way, he even looks like Brad Pitt a little, but there are flaws. Surprisingly, he's good in bed (because you got drunk and shit happens).
Remember that - yeah we don't either.
One star is like expecting a somewhat attractive guy and being sent a Grumpy cat meme. We appreciate the effort, but no. This book was not for us. Grumpy cat might want to use it for litter though.
