Bookcation Event: Midnight's Kiss by Donna Grant (Guest Post/Giveaway)

It's Memorial Day Weekend here in the US which means, Summer is here! Take a trip without ever leaving the comfort of your home all week long at Reading Between the Wines with our BOOKCATION event. We'll have some awesome authors joining us with summer vacation themed posts and fabulous books to enjoy all summer long! To kick things off I would like to welcome the one and only, Donna Grant!

As Summer comes barreling toward us, I’m finalizing our plans for another trip to Scotland.  There is always so much to get together for any trip, but one of the first things my two kids, my hubby, and I do is get all the books we’ll be bringing with us.

For the first time I’ll be traveling with an e-reader, as will the rest of my family.  We’re all still getting used to them, because we prefer print books.  But I have to admit, there are so many more books I can pile on an e-reader and not have to worry about carting around while traveling.

Though I will get a lot of reading done on our trip, I’ll also be visiting several places in Scotland that are featured in the Dark Sword, Dark Warrior, and Dark King books.  Then there are the ideas that always take shape while I’m there and walking the land, visiting castles, or just driving around.

Our last trip to Scotland inspired me to set MIDNIGHT’S KISS during an archeological dig after seeing some of the relics dug up during once such dig.  I knew once I added in the Druids with their magic, the immortal Highland Warriors, and a special surprise, that it was going to be a fun book to write.  And the characters didn’t disappoint me!

Take a journey with installment #5 of the bestselling Dark Warriors series in MIDNIGHT’S KISS

DEEPER THAN DESIREDr. Veronica Reid is a world-renowned archeologist whose Druid abilities help her to unearth ancient magical items. The arrival of the all-too-attractive and charismatic Arran MacCarrick puts her on the defensive when he begins to question how she really finds her artifacts…until an unknown foe attacks and Ronnie discovers that Arran has a secret as great as her own. Together, they unleash an all-consuming passion that won't be denied...STRONGER THAN FATEImmortal Warrior Arran is on a mission to find the spell to bind the god within him. But one look at the impossibly beautiful Ronnie and he knows there is more to her than meets the eye. With danger lurking around every corner and an undeniable hunger that grows with every kiss, Arran must reveal who he is to keep Ronnie from his nemesis. Now he is left with no choice but to fight—or fall—for the woman he loves...So where will your summer plans take you?
