A QUEST FOR HAPPINESS
Resigned to a lonely life after a fierce betrayal of the man who broke her spirit, Meg Alpin retreats to her family’s castle. In her pursuit to move on with her life, she uncovers long buried secrets and discovers something magical amidst the furniture in the tower. In one instant, her dull world is given bright new meaning in the form of a Highlander too magnificent, too handsome to be real.
A DESIRE FOR FREEDOM
Cursed and caged in a mirror by a gypsy, Ronan Galt’s existence is complete darkness and unquenchable need. When he’s brought back into the light, his distrust of women is at odds with his instant attraction to the beautiful and strong Meg. In his quest to be free of his prison, he will learn the true meaning of love – but will it be too late to claim the woman that was destined to be his?
The Craving is a steamy and quick romance story with magic, love and adventure. This is a nice start to a new series.
The Craving is the first book of the Rogues of Scotland series, a story of 4 best friends that are cursed. The curse is their punishment for a causing harm to a Gypsy. The Craving is the story of Ronan, who is the main cause of the curse. After 200 years of being trapped in darkness he is released by Meg Alpin. Meg has been living a lonely life after a betrayal. The loneliness and lack of trust are what Ronan and Meg have in common. But the curse brought them together and they both must accept the past and have courage to move forward.
I am a huge fan of author Donna Grant and The Craving has the romance and excitement that I expect from her books. But because it is a novella I did feel there was some passion in the story missing. Perhaps if it was a little bit longer there would have been the sizzling chemistry of the characters that I loved from her Druid’s Glen series.
Overall I did like the story. This is perfect for romance fans that want a quick read to add some excitement for their day.
