Today’s Author Spotlight: Darkest Highlander by Donna Grant!


SO much fun.  And a huge thanks to Roni Loren yesterday for giving away a copy of CRASH INTO YOU to Jean Jones !  Congrats Jean !!


Today’s spotlight is on another Texas-based author, Donna Grant, with her paranormal romance, DARKEST HIGHLANDER.  

 Donna Grant has been praised for her “totally addictive” and “unique and sensual” stories.  She’s the bestselling author of more than twenty novels spanning multiple  genres of romance—Scottish Medieval, dark fantasy, time travel,  paranormal, and erotic.  Her latest acclaimed series, Dark Sword,  features a thrilling combination of Druids, primeval gods, and immortal  Highlanders who are dark, dangerous, and irresistible.

She lives with  her husband, two children, a dog, and three cats in Texas.

And here are the the famous three questions, with Donna’s answers:

What’s your favorite love story hero, from any story, any genre?

-Deagas MacKelter from Karen Marie Moning’s THE DARK HIGHLANDER

What’s your favorite love song and why?

Unchained Melody by the Righteous Brothers.  Why?  Love the sound of his voice and the music, but combined with hearing it after watching Patrick Swayze in Ghost, and there was no turning back. 🙂

What’s your guilty pleasure comfort food?

 -Pasta.  I love just about any kind of pasta.

Now…for the good stuff… 
For years, Broc has watched over her, protected  her—and hidden his love for her. But when his beautiful Sonya finds  herself in a hopeless situation, the Highlander flies to her side to  save her. Unfortunately, before the Druidess can thank him, Broc is  captured by his enemy and destined for eternal pain…
Sonya vows to help her noble warrior, though he is  imprisoned in a mountain of pure evil—bound in chains of the darkest  magic. With Sonya’s own magic fading, she must summon the greatest power of all to save the man she loves. But even if these two hearts are  united, will they be strong enough to defeat the heart of darkness? Or  will their undying love doom them for all eternity…

Wow, that sounds really good!!  Now it’s time to try to make it yours.  🙂

Leave a comment below for Donna (including your email address!), saying hello, dropping a thought or two about the book, the blurb, whether or not Texas girls wear cowboy hats… No, that’s a joke.  Don’t do that.  I’m one too, and I’ll nix that right now.  We don’t.  Unless we’re at a Country bar…and then still probably not.  LOL.   Okay, so same rules apply… Comment before 10pm CST (because I need my sleep…lol) and a random commenter (chosen by The Hat) will be chosen to win a signed copy of Donna’s book, DARKEST HIGHLANDER.

  5. These books sound fantastic! I’ve been hooked on Highlanders the past month or so! I actually started with KMMs highlanders! I’m on the sixth book in that series!

    I’m a south Texas girl, too, and the only time I see women wearing cowboy hats is at the rodeo. Even then, I didn’t wear mine. I do have one though.

    Thanks for the giveaway, Donna! I love pasta too!

  6. Bettysunflower – Kate is a good friend of mine, and a great writer!

    Kristina – thank you! Highlanders are yummy, aren’t they? Love, love, love them. lol. I have a cowboy hat too, but that’s because I was raised with horses and cattle and used to barrel race for a short time.
