Guest Post w/ Donna Grant: Supernatural Smackdown!

OOoo we have a Highland Warrior joining us today for a supernatural smackdown. And he is all kinds of yummy. Check out what Arran has to say then leave the man some love!  ~Anna
Dr. 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…

Immortal 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…

"Supernatural smackdown, huh? I doona know exactly what that is, but as a Highlander and a Warrior, I’m all about battle. With a primeval god inside drug up from the bowels of Hell, few would dare to take me on.

But I’m willing to go against any who dare.

I spent decades locked in the Pit of Cairn Toul Mountain after a drough found me and unbound the god passed down to me through my bloodline. That samedrough used her not inconsiderable magic to torture me time and again in the hopes that I would break and fall to her side. I suffered through it all.

Then, when the time came, I helped others rise against her and we made our escape. I battled against her, never relenting, even when it meant that Druid magic sent me forward in time to present day Scotland so I could help kill her. It took far longer than any of us liked, but I wasna alone. There where the other Warriors – my brethren – and the Druids who had all come together to fight.

We lost friends, fought in battles that will never be recorded in history books, and felt magic strong enough to knock you off your feet. Never did we relent.
Until she finally lay dead.

There was no rest, however, because there was another drough ready to take her place – this one more deadly that we anticipated. We were no’ prepared for his devious attacks. Each of us Warriors has our own special ability given to us by the gods we house.

Mine – Memphaea – gives me the ability to control snow and ice. I use it to smother, to hamper vision, but there’s nothing like a spear made of ice as an effective weapon. Up close and personal or in a battle hundreds of yards apart, there is none who can withstand my assault. I see farther, hear more, jump higher, and move quicker than any human or animal. I can sense the magic of Druids and even determine if the Druid is mie or drough by the feel of their magic. I have claws sharp enough to decapitate with just one swipe, and fangs ready to rip out your throat.

The evil will never end. Other Warriors who have married want to bind their gods, but no’ me. I know my destiny is to fight the evil that would take over the world. I might have a monster inside me who turns me into a beast, but I willna ever stop fighting for the side of good. For I am a Highlander, a Warrior.   ~Arran

Donna GrantDonna Grant is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of more than forty novels and novellas spanning multiple genres of romance.

She was born and raised in Texas but loves to travel. Her adventures have taken her throughout the United States as well as to Jamaica, Mexico, and Scotland. Growing up on the Texas/Louisiana border, Donna’s Cajun side of the family taught her the “spicy” side of life while her Texas roots gave her two-steppin’ and bareback riding.

Her childhood dream was to become a professional ballet dancer and study under the amazing Mikhail Baryshnikov. Though she never got to meet Baryshnikov, she did make it to New York City and performed in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Later, Donna’s love of the romance genre and the constant stories running through her head prompted her to sit down and write her first book. Once that book was completed, there was no turning back.

Despite the deadlines and her voracious reading, Donna still manages to keep up with her two young children, four cats, three fish, and one long haired Chihuahua. She’s blessed with a proud, supportive husband who loves to read and travel as much as she does.
