Defenders against evil. Bound by the gods. The Dark Warriors are taking their battle from ancient Scotland to the modern world-where a woman's love can set them free


Gwynn Austin has no idea why her father has disappears on a mysterious trip to Scotland. When she goes on a desperate mission to search for him she finds more than she bargains for in a ruggedly handsome, wickedly exciting Highlander who exudes danger and mystery. And when she discovers her own link to Scotland, She'll have to trust her heart to help lead her...


Propelled through time by powerful Druid Magic, Logan Hamilton uses his immortality and powers of the god inside him to help prevent the awakening of an ancient evil in the modern world. He never expects to find help in the form of a beautiful, alluring, and all too tempting woman whose passion and strength matches his own. Together, Logan and Gwynn must fight for their love-before a demon from the past destroys them both...

When I started reading this book, after immediately finishing the Dark Sword Series, we have come to know Logan as the jokester with a hidden secret. When Logan and Duncan were ambushed in the last book, we learn what Logan's secret was and why he was so afraid to tell it... Being thrown 4 centuries into the future (2012), Logan is in search of Dierdre and trying to figure out what/who pulled her through time...

We meet Gwynn, an American from Texas traveling through Scotland in search of her father who has been out of contact for some time now.  Gwynn meets Logan and he finds himself for some reason compelled to stay by and protect her...especially after he finds out SHE is a druid... . I had a few moments through this book when I wanted to thump Logan in the back of the head for doing something I didn’t want him to be doing (Or not do something I felt he should have). Logan and Gwynn meet in Mallig and he escorts her to the Isle of Eigg where they learn that Gwynn is the keeper of the Tablet of Orn and then their travels begin to get…..treacherous. They go to Declan Wallace’s house to search for her father and find much more than they bargained for. Gwynn and Logan work together to escape, but ultimately, Gwynn must drive and navigate Scotland in efforts to rescue Logan. When they arrive at the MacLeod’s castle Gwynn is introduced to the warriors and druids at the castle. I was so touched with the way Logan opened up to Gwynn, and alternately upset with Gwynn for not chasing Logan out of the bathroom to explain herself a bit more. There were many ups and downs in this book and although I was afraid a few times for the lives of my beloved warriors and druids, all ended well with everything coming along in the end. I am however very curious about Saffron and the instant connection she had with her rescuer. I was quite a bit angry with Gary and wished that he was just being forced to obey Declan. But at the point where he met his fate, I was glad and sad all at once. From the beginning to the end of this book I was on edge.  I am very curious to see what will become of this new villain and where Dierdre will go from here… Will she join Declan and try to make their efforts together? Although Dierdre is an evil bi**h, I think that something inside her would like to have a mate… but I am afraid that if she were to find a mate that the world would be in for quite a worry.
I give this book 5 shields!!
