"From the Highland hills come 3 alluring stories about the men who live there and the women they love"

Fresh Fiction Review

Highland Hunger

Reviewed by Heather Lobdell

Paranormal - Supernatural

For a romance reader like me there is not much better than a Scottish romance. Combine hot stacked men in kilts with some fangs and you have the makings of a steamy book. HIGHLAND HUNGER is good as it gets. All three stories were remarkable, leading me into hills of heather and into worlds that only exist in my imagination. Every story was unique in its telling and I felt swept away with each tale, each man, and watching them struggle their way to love. When you think of romance you think Hannah Howell and when she mixes the beauty of the Highlands with the notorious MacNachton's nothing is sweeter. Dark Embrace is the story of Raibeart MacNachton; a man struggling to live, keep his family alive, and protect his people at all costs. Headed to shelter for the day, Raibeart is shocked to see the beauty being chased and called a witch. Her beauty is the lure and her every move seems to reel him in. Una Dunn has just escaped a fate worse than death. Running for her life to find rescue for others that were caged like her, Una knows that she must take help wherever it is given. It appears that rescue has come in the form of a dark, dangerous, and sexy man; a man who suffers the same affliction from the sun as she does. Jackie Ivie is the next author to sweep the pages of HIGHLAND HUNGER. Ivie's stunning story is called A Knight Beyond Black, it was just as seductive as the name. Iain has waiting lifetimes for one woman to be born. The one woman who would hold his heart and his very soul in her hands and then he had to wait some more to claim her. The time of waiting is past and Tira finds him lacking. A man who has protected his people, holds titles and names too long to remember, a man like no other man -- and she finds him lacking. Courting his chosen wife was not something that had ever entered into Iain's plans. It was supposed to be simple. Come get his wife, take her home, and live happily ever after. Nothing had prepared Iain for Tira's strength, determination, or her beauty. The final story in the book was actually my favorite. Michele Sinclair has written an action packed adventure with The Guardian. From the first page this story was remarkable. Dorian has come home again in an attempt at thwarting his nephew, home to Scotland, and home to protect the land that he loves like no other. Time has not changed the ever-battling Highlanders and time has always seemed to stand still here. Dorian has always played guardian to these people each and every time he has returned. Only this time a guardian already exists and she is most definitely not happy about finding Dorian trying to take her place. Moirae Deincourt has struggled with finding her place in Glenneyrie. She has struggled to give back to the people that have taken her in, but when the danger becomes to close and personal Moirae knows that she must learn new tricks in order to survive as the guardian. Teaching Moirae hot to fight was not something that Dorian planned, finding her night after night at his gate, sleeping in his home, and taking over his very existence was not planned either. It is simply what she has done, can Dorian walk away from the world she has given him or can he finally have somewhere to call home?

But when Moirae's life is put in danger, her true nature is revealed - and the lust that rages between them can no longer be controlled..."A Knight Beyond Black" by Jackie Ivie: Vampire Iain Duncan MacAvee has stepped forward to claim the woman he betrothed years ago - only to learn that the tempting Lady Tira knows nothing of the engagement. Though Tira feigns disinterest, the Duke's animal-like charisma has unleashed her most carnal desires - a hunger only Iain can satisfy...
