Midnight Lover

Donna Grant

ISBN: 9780312552497

Deirdre the evil Drough Druid killed Duncan Kerr and left the dead warrior’s brother Ian a mental cripple struggling to contain the blood thirsty god Farmire that resides inside him. Making it worse she sent him from 1603 to 2012 where he hid in a cave but now considers going to Macleod Castle as a voice in his head insists.

Since her Aunt Josie died five years ago, Danielle Buchanan the Druid has felt alone. When she finds a key in the snow, she knows her magic compulsively makes her return the object; this time the whispers tell her to head to MacLeod Castle. Wyrran attacks Dani, but Ian, sensing druid blood nearby, saves her life. Dani explains her obsession and Ian reluctantly agrees to accompany her. As she also teams up on his dangerous quest, they fall in love, but even meeting his seventeenth century comrades in arms does not abate the dreaded Deirdre scheme that seems imminent.

The latest Dark Warrior (see Midnight Masters) spin off thriller (from the fabulous Dark Sword saga) is a strong entry as trust issues complicate the good and evil war. Action-packed from the moment Ian rescues Dani and never slowing down, fans will appreciate this superb time travel urban fantasy starring two wonderful heroes and a strong support cast.
