Midnight’s Temptation-Donna Grant

Midnight’s Temptation

Donna Grant

ISBN: 9781250017284

Aisley Wallace regrets heeding the advice of her cousin Jason when he persuaded her to sell her soul to the Devil for power. No longer a Mie Druid, filled with anguish Aisley is damned to live in Hell, home to the malevolent soul selling Drough Druids. Making matters more difficult to accept for Aisley is she has a conscience that requires her to rectify her mistakes starting with preventing dead Jason from enacting revenge and harming the innocent before she dies.

Phelan the Warrior pursues Aisley whose kiss awakened deep feelings of love after centuries of him being a hermit following his long incarceration by Isla the Drough. He offers to keep Aisley safe in spite of his vow to assassinate all Droughs, but her siren skills supersede her evil Druid essence. Though she wants to say yes, Aisley refuses because she cannot allow harm to come to her beloved due to her foolishness. Meanwhile evil is coming to collect Aisley and anyone in the way.

The latest Dark Warrior (see Midnight's Captive) is a taut action-packed romantic fantasy that hooks the audience throughout. The concise fast-paced storyline focuses on the two wounded warriors who fear love yet may find redemption if they take a chance; while the vile villain’s stalking provides suspense to a fabulous tale.
