This is a nice little story, well written, with nice characters, and an entertaining storyline. It's not the usual sort of Highland romance, with sexy sword wielding Highland lairds and feuding clans. From the book blurb I expected this might be the case, yet still I had hope--I'm inordinately fond of Highland romances. LOL Anyhow, the story that unfolded, although not exactly what I had hoped for, was still very engaging. Ronan, a Highland warrior in 1427, runs afoul of a gypsy when he sleeps with, and refuses to marry, her granddaughter. He is cursed and confined in a mirror where he is destined to remain until he "earns" his freedom. Having no idea of how to do that, Ronan lives in despair of ever being free, until he is released from the mirror by the heroine, Meg. Both Ronan and Meg have trust issues with the opposite sex, yet still true love wins out and all ends well.

She finds Ronan's mirror, covered with a sheet. She uncovers it, and Ronan pops out. But what does Ronan have to do to "earn" his freedom forever?
This is not a never ending series. From the...

Donna Grant understands the Scottish Heart and shows it once again in this delightful first book of her Rogues of Scotland Series.
The Rogues of Scotland, "Four Highlanders whose bond of brotherhood finds each of them cursed. It'll take special women willing to break the curse - and bet on love."
The Rogues are four men connected by bonds of friendship so deep they consider each other brothers. But when they are cursed into utter blackness, destined to remain in darkness until they redeemed themselves.. Hard to do when bound by darkness..
The Craving tells the story of Ronan Galt, nephew to the laird. Ronan dallied where he shouldn't have. Having spent time in a lovely Gypsy's arms, Ronan was besotted but figured that he would move on when the time was right. Unknowingly to him, said gypsy was in love and expected marriage.
