Blurb:  Fallon McLeod has gifts any warrior would covet—fierce strength, unmatched skill, even immortality. But those gifts have 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 woman 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…

Review:  As with the first book, it came across as a pretty decent story, but honestly?  Nothing that was all that special or knocked my socks off.  The characters in this book seemed a bit wishy washy and not that solid, so I didn’t get that into them.  For me, this really was just an okay read.  I am planning on reading the next one because this one left a whole lot open, but after that I’m not sure I’ll read more.
