Review: Midnight’s Lover by Donna Grant

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.

Ian has such a heartbreaking beginning in this new time. Ian did not even have the time to mourn the loss of his brother before he was jerked from the life he knew and thrown four hundred years into the future, into a time he does not understand, into a place where he is all alone. Now he has to not only deal with the loss of his twin Duncan, but he must learn how to control the god within him at his full force all alone. Duncan and Ian had always shared their god. Oh, Ian just makes you want to cry for him. He is lost and confused and wants nothing more than to end Dierdre.

Due to a terrible loss at an early age Danielle was raised by an aunt that made sure she knew about most of her Druid heritage. This is a blessing in a way. Her ability (that she hates) would have been mighty confusing to a person who is unaware of the magic in the world. Her magical ability is about to turn her New Year’s Eve upside down and change her life forever. The worst night of Dani’s life is about to turn into the best thing that has ever happened, Ian.

Ian and Dani were perfect for each other. Her knowing of her Druid heritage allows for her to take in everything Ian is going to tell her. She also understands him more than he gives her credit for. Her openness to the magic allows for her to be more open to the feelings in her surroundings. The moment something is amiss she realizes it, while she may not know what it is she knows what it is not. Dani truly was exactly what Ian needed at this moment in his life.

I like villains, but I love a well-played villain. The fact that Declan and Dierdre have plans for each other is great. Readers are typically treated to good vs. evil. Donna has treated her readers to two vile individuals that have brought evil vs. evil to the pages. This is such a treat for me. I love the big evil for my literary treats to have large enough roles in what I am reading that I get page time with them. I enjoy reading from the villain’s point of view. I like to know what is going on with them other than the muddling up of the lives of the hero and heroine. Donna’s two villains are a pleasure for me and I am so looking forward to the moment when her sexy Warriors bring them down.

I have to admit even though I am not a reader of historical romance I am very curious about Duncan. I just may have to go back and read the Dark Sword books. Duncan and Ian seemed to have more than the typical twin relationship. They were each other’s rock. Even though I started reading these books after Duncan is gone I can still see how they relied on each other and he is missed terribly by his brother. All the heroes and heroines from the Dark Sword series have me more and more curious about those books.
