Midnight's Master
Midnight's Master - Donna Grant

So this picks right up where the last book (of the previous series; "Dark Sword") left off. While I think someone could read this one without reading the previous series, it would be more enjoyable if the 6 books in the "Dark Sword" series were read first. Just my opinion. This has been a nice, easy to read series that I've enjoyed thus far.
While I liked Gwynn, what was up with the high heels? Impractical! Gwynn has magic. She suppressed it because her mother thought it was weird/didn't like it (not much said about it), so she forgot about it/hide it. He dad goes missing, so she goes to Scotland to try to find him. For not being around magic, or believing in it, she gets a handle on it quickly. There really wasn't much of a learning curve. Considering this book takes place over 1 week, okay, fine, I'll buy it. 
Logan is from the past and time-traveled 400 years to the present when Deirdre went missing. Logan's got this big Secret (he wanted to know if he had god and willingly went to Deirdre to find out). I thought he spent too much of his time regretting this. Mistakes are made (with varying degrees), you learn, and move on!
I enjoyed seeing the other couples from the previous 6 books; Cara and Lucan, Lavena and Fallon, Marcail and Quinn, Isla and Hayden, Reaghan and Galen, and Sonya and Broc. Marcail and Quinn's son, Aidan makes an appearance. Likewise Ramsay, Camdyn, Arran, and Ian (wow all time-traveled too). Ian is the only one missing, but is in present day. And his story is next! In additon to Deirdre, there is a new badie, Declan. While Deirdre is an evil bitch, that I hated from the first series (just die already!), I think Declan might be a bigger threat. Deirdre's world-view is small and she has only a few focuses and many blind spots, Declan does not. Should be interesting.
I did like the time-travel element, bringing these old-fashioned Highlanders to the modern era. I also liked the little twist with Gwynn's father. Will see if Saffron, a Druid that Declan held prisoner gets her story. Malcolm too. He could still be redeemed. It's a maybe.

 

Booklikes Bingo:  Spellbound square.

Loved It
Cowboy, Cross My Heart - Donna Grant

Naomi Pierce isn’t the type to let a cowboy sweep her off feet. It’s not her first rodeo, after all. But when she returns to her Texas hometown, she can’t help but be swept up again in the rough-and-tumble world of hard-riding, bronco-busting good-ol’-boys she loved as a girl. She might be here to photograph her Rodeo Queen best friend. But it’s one fine-looking cowboy who really captures her eye…

This book started out good and fast-paced and it just kept getting better and better. I couldn’t put it down until it was done. I particularly liked Bryce Harper after meeting him as a stubborn youth in his sister’s book. I liked the man he became and loved the his story with Naomi. I also liked the different side characters and I can’t wait until we get a book for his brother and each of their friends!! I highly recommend.

New Release Review! Cowboy, Cross My Heart (Heart of Texas #2) Donna Grant!
Cowboy, Cross My Heart - Donna Grant

 

 

New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant takes you deep inside the Texas rodeo scene, where danger and desire ride side by side. . .

 

Naomi Pierce isn't the type to let a cowboy sweep her off feet. It's not her first rodeo, after all. But when she returns to her Texas hometown, she can't help but be swept up again in the rough-and-tumble world of hard-riding, bronco-busting good-ol'-boys she loved as a girl. She might be here to photograph her Rodeo Queen best friend. But it's one fine-looking cowboy who really captures her eye...

 

Brice Harper is all man, all muscle, and all heart. From the moment he rides into the stadium, he can't help but notice the beautiful stranger with a camera watching him from the stands. It doesn't take a zoom lens to see the sparks of instant attraction. But things really heat up when he meets Naomi up-close--and he discovers that someone is stalking her friend. Brice wouldn't be any kind of cowboy if he didn't offer to help the ladies out. But can the rough rider keep this spirited shutterbug out of danger--without risking his heart?

 

 

Thrilling suspense and treacherous adversaries draw readers deep inside the Texas rodeo scene, where danger and desire ride side by side. Naomi Pierce and Brice Harper are two strong, convincing characters that readers can easily fall for as they are pulled into their story with a magnetic attraction that holds them hostage once they are in. The romance between Naomi and Brice is full of sizzling electricity and red hot passion although the relationship is threatened by the situation that they find themselves ensnared in. There are plenty of emotional turmoil to accompany that situations as well the kind that goes along with any newly forming relationship to keep readers engaged with the characters.

 

While thrilling suspense and exhilarating danger ensures that that they keep turning the pages as the search for a stalker makes Naomi and Bride targets of manipulative and powerful enemies. Surprising twists, family issues, friend issues, a budding romance and adrenaline pumping events guarantees that there is never a dull moment and since the author paints such vivid imagery and has created brilliant characters the readers has no problem becoming caught up in all the thrills and romance.

 

The steady to fast paced plot is further enhanced with believable and realistic issues faced by the characters and the well developed world is enriched by the loyalty and courage of the characters in the Heart of Texas series which enthralls readers and assures that they keep coming back for more.

Cowboy, Cross My Heart
Cowboy, Cross My Heart - Donna Grant

Cowboy, Cross My Heart is the second book in the Heart of Texas series, but it works as a standalone. There are several years between the events in the two books, and we're given plenty of backstory. This one is loaded with sexy cowboys, instant attraction, some suspense, corruption, danger, steam, and romance. All of these combined should've made for a riveting story, but it ended up being just an okay read for me. I liked most of the characters, and I enjoyed Brice and Naomi's romance. There's also some witty dialogue and general silliness among the Harper family. Then, we have our bad guys, and that's where my problems started with this book. The suspense and danger covers some serious subject matter, but the people involved came across feeling more like caricatures. There just wasn't much depth to that part of the story, which was sad because it could've made this one a gripping story. In the end, the story was okay, but I wasn't left with a need to continue with the series.

Great Book and Great Characters
Dark Alpha's Hunger - Donna Grant

After being trapped in a nether-realm, Eoghan is drawn to music he can hear that allows him to break through a portal and get back to Ireland. The vision he first sees is a lovely half-fae that played the music that set him free. Thea doesn’t know why she was always drawn to the stones, but she had been. She found herself often there, losing herself to her music. What she didn’t expect was a mysterious man to come through the stones one night.

This was a pretty good story. A couple of twists I definitely didn’t seem coming. I was happy to get Eoghan’s story and see him back in action. While I would love to see the ultimate battle with Lady Death, the introduction of other new characters has me thinking we probably have a few more books until that happens. I highly recommend.
