The characters are to fall in love with, with a strong, intelligent heroine and an irresistably sexy, arrogant yet compassionate and warm hero. The plot is highly interesting and keeps you guessing how they'll find a way to save the dark highlander's soul.
And best of all, by the time you finish this book YOU WON'T BE LEFT WANTING A LINE OF IT REWRITTEN !!!
I've rarely read a book that was so perfect that I didn't want it to ever finish it, and actually kept on reading slower towards the end.
Strange events lead to the thrilling conclusion that the man is possessed by 13 evil, ancient druids. She decides to help get rid of them. In the process, she looses her virginity to Dageus, who is an expert lover...
Chloe is trembling from lust and lore as the story unfolds.
The story reeks of "sex with the dark highlander", but it's definitely more than just that. The book keeps the reader reading, it's well written and for a short erotic fantasy it's ok.
For comparison: "Garden In The Rain" is the same genre but not as well written as this one.
The book may well be recommended for an easy reading.
This book tells the story of Dageus, Drustans younger twin(Drustan and Gwens story':kiss of the highlander)
After Dageus saved Drustans live with Druid magic he was doomed and has one good conscience and thirteen bad ones. And only sex with a woman can get him more time before he looses his mind and the bad druids in him take over his body. He only choses experienced women.
When Chloe Zanders (a virgin) student of antiquities is drawn into his world, she finds the insatiable lure.
When she first met him he finds her under his bed and after that he binds Chloe to his bed. She thinks of him of as a thief, a kidnapper, and a womanizer, but not as a man she could love...
I loved this book, because of the feelings, but there are only a few descriptions of old scotland and I love Scotland and thats because I only gave 4 stars.
But you must read it!
Perfekt für lange Sonntage.Witzig, charismatisch und sehr sehr romantisch und wild.

"Is it just me or does Dageus seem ALOT hotter, a lot darker than the telling of his story? He's supposed to be the dark one right? The one fighting the intense forces of the 13 within him that no mortal man could possibly deny right? So why don't I see or feel all these things I'm being told are there? And what's with the glossed over sex scenes? Really? All that build up for this? Needs to be hotter."
Sadly my opinion didn't change.
The circumstances that lead you to Dageus & his story, the possibilities I should say, were much more intriguing than the actual reveal of them. I missed the struggle. That dark, intense decadence that should have been present throughout the telling of Dageus' story.
The immense pressure, uncertainty, & fear that should have been there wasn't. And I feel this too coincided with how he and Chloe related to one another & how their love would blossom. The very glossed over, barely touched coupling of these two, didn't help this story either and I'm not just speaking about the physical aspects.
While there was a promise of this early on in the beginning, it just didn't deliver when the time came.
When it comes to what we are told is at stake here. In Drustan's book & this one as well, that was more compelling than what we get here with the journey, answers, & resolution. Everything we are given goes no deeper than the surface. In comparison to the issues & what we actually got in the journey/reveal it just seemed so... Superficial. Simple. And this is why I've been found wanting.
This book is a good filler for the moving along of certain plots within this series to get you to the next chapter in this world. For that alone, I would recommend this read. Especially if you are following the series in order. But coupled with the telling of Dageus & his mate Chloe, it's not well balanced & their story within this story, suffers greatly for it.
Dageus is a druid with a problem. He has broken his oath in order to save his brother, Drustan. In breakng this oath, he has invited thirteen dark druid souls into his body that are slowly taking over. Once they take over he we cease to exist.
Chloe is a bright spirited and tenacious. She is passionate about relics, especially Scottish relics. She is about to go on adventure that will put her knowledge and heart to the test.
Again just like Kiss of the Highlander, The Dark Highlander is beautifully written. But where Kiss of the Highlander was a little lighter, The Dark Highlander is more intense. You still have the humour to break up the intensity but we learn the differences between they way the brothers deal with the world. It explores many relationships. You not only feel the love between Dageus and Chloe, but you get to know the relationship between the twin brothers and Dad and son all while trying to save Dageus. Dageus really learned how he fits into his family.
We also get to know more about the Compact that was created between The Tuatha De Danaan and The MacKeltar's. And the consequences of breaking the sacred Compact.
This book takes the reader on a journey through space and time. It has joy and sorrow and always leaves you wanting to this book again.
Let me tick off a few good things first.
1. The hero, Dageus, is just...wow.
2. The sex scenes...I think it's going to take weeks for me to uncurl my toes.
3. The story is great. It drags a wee bit in spots, but nothing that really put me off.
4. Return appearances from a few well loved characters...always fun.
5. Time travel and evil druids...what's not to love?!
So what didn't work for me? Chloe. There was nothing really extraordinary about her.
-She was curious. Not really that unusual, but ok.
-She could interpret several languages. Admirable, but not earth shattering.
-She was crazy over "artifacts." Fortunate for her since Dageus has tons of them.
-She was naive and an innocent virgin. /shrug
I don't know. I just don't get it. Maybe I'm missing something really extraordinary about her, but I left the book feeling like he could have done better. Obviously, Dageus would disagree, though, and at the end of the day, it's really all about the HEA. And THAT I felt Dageus deserved, however (and with whoever) he could find it.
So, if you're hesitant about reading this book in the series...DON'T BE. It's worth it. It wasn't quite the emotional roller coaster that "Kiss of the Highlander" was, but ahhh...Dageus. He's worth the coin and the time. I promise. ;)
