Donna Grant

~What type of romace do you prefer to read? Historical and paranormal.

~What are your favorite types of Heros & / or heroines? I love alpha heroes. I also like strong heroines, but not the ones who come off acting too bitchy. There is a difference between strong and bitchy, and sometimes its hard to get it right.
~Fav color - Burgundy

~Fav movies -Lord of the Rings (all three extended versions), Prince of Persia (one of my new faves!), Clash of the Titans (new version), King Arthur, Constantine, and Serenity
~Do you read any reviews on your books? I do if they are sent to me, but I don't go looking for them. I have in the past and found some that I wish I hadn't read.

~Do you read your own books after they make it to final print? lol. No. I've already read them too many times, and if I did, I'd find places I wish I'd edited more or mistakes, etc... For my piece of mind I leave it alone. :)

~Do you have a favorite book /series? I'm completely in awe and "have to have" mode for any of Lara Adrian's Midnight Breed series!

~Is writing your full time job? Yes, I'm lucky enough that I get to do something that I thoroughly love

~When and where do you like to write? I write Monday - Friday in my office. I love my office. :)

~Whats the best thing about being an author? This is a three part answer. One is seeing your book on the shelves at a bookstore. Two is seeing someone you don't know reading your book. Three receiving emails/letters from fans.

~How long did you write before you became a published author? I wrote for six years before my first contract.

Donnas Dark Sword Series
Dangerous Highlander
He is magnificently strong — and dangerously seductive. One of the fiercest of his clan, Lucan MacLeod is a legend among warriors, inspiring fear in man and woman alike. For three hundred years, he has locked himself away from the world, hiding the vengeful god imprisoned in his soul. But then, a young lass caught in a raging storm awakens his deepest impulses…and darkest desires.

Cara doesn’t believe the rumors about MacLeod castle—until the majestic Highland warrior appears like a fiery vision in the storm, pulling her into his powerful arms, and into his world of magic and Druids. An epic war between good and evil is brewing. And Lucan must battle his all-consuming attraction for Cara—or surrender to the flames of a reckless, impossible love that threatens to destroy them both…
My Review coming soon!

Forbidden Highlander

Fallon MacLeod has gifts any warrior would covet - fierce strength, unmatched skill, even immortality. But those gifts come at a price that puts everyone he loves at risk. Only when his brother, Quinn, is taken captive does Fallon leave the seclusion of his Highland home to seek the king's aid. And though every women at court would gladly be his for the asking, one alone causes desire to roar to life within him: beautiful, mysterious Larena Monroe.

Rumors swirl around the castle about "The McLeod" but Larena knows the truth. Like Fallon, Larena is searching for a way to vanquish the evil Druid who wants to wreak havoc on earth. Drawn to Fallon in spite of her fear, she surrenders to a passion that shocks them both with its raw intensity. But Larena dares not hope for more - not when she holds a secret that could turn her fiery Highland love against her forever…

Haven't read Donna yet but Forbidden Highlander peaks my interest.

Diana (Book of Secrets) June 1, 2010 at 3:36 PM  

Hi, Donna and JoJo!

I've read Dangerous Highlander from Dark Sword, and I've also read Shadow Magic from Sisters of Magic trilogy. Loved them both! (I have the rest loaded on my Nook and ready to go!!) My 2 favorite romance genres are paranormal and historical, and Donna's books are a fantastic blend of both!

I'm a fangirl, so I'd love to win a signed copy of Dangerous Highlander!


Natasha June 1, 2010 at 3:51 PM  

I haven't read any of Donna's books, but Forbidden Highlander looks really good. I want to read it!


Carol L. June 1, 2010 at 4:47 PM  

Hi Donna,
I have read Dangerous Highlander and absolutely loved Lucan. But since I'm also a Highlander freak I'm sure I'm going to love each and every Highlander in this series.
I have also just finished reading Mutual Desire. I loved Ewan and Kate.
I enjoyed the post.
