New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant returns to the Highlands in the second book in her scorching Rogues of Scotland series complete with breathtaking romance and the enchantment of the paranormal


Cursed by a gypsy and banished to a realm of darkness for over two hundred years, Morcant Banner resigns himself to an eternity of torture. With need and frustration his ever-present companions, he's given up hope of ever seeing his friends again, let alone knowing the pleasures of a woman. When he is suddenly freed from his prison by a very beautiful, very wary woman, he's forced to face a reality much different from the one he remembers. A reality without the men he once called brothers, but with Leana who makes him hunger like no other...


Introverted and guarded, Leana freely admits that she prefers the quiet of the forest to the company of people. She's comfortable in her independence and enjoys her solitude. When she stumbles upon a mysterious man unconscious in the forest, the very same man she's had a vision about, she begins to believe in the magic the villagers whisper about. Because only magic could explain the uncontrollable, irresistible longing she feels for the handsome Morcant. But can she give in to her desires, knowing that he could leave her like everyone else?

This all-new, never-before-published novella is approximately 20-25,000 words.

NUMBER OF HEARTS: 3 3/4 REVIEW:  Darkness Longing Freedom  The Hunger is the second novella in Donna Grant’s Rogues of Scotland and follows Morcant’s journey. If you have not read novella #1 The Craving, I would suggest that you read. But you don’t have too The Hunger recaps what happens to the Rogues. It is so hard sometimes to review a novella. Because so much happens in such a short time. And if I tell you to much I will give everything away.  So let’s go with this. After almost 200 years of darkness Morcant will not let anyone stand in his way of seeing the sun for the rest of his life. Leana thought that being alone was okay, that she was fine and that she didn’t need anyone. Oh how wrong she was.  Disclaimer:  I received a complimentary copy of the book from Donna Grant in exchange for an honest review. This review is my own opinion and not a paid review.

Thank you Donna Grant for this Rogue collection. Each of the 4 books were written with their on indivisuality. I am kind-of leaning towards this one as my favorite, kinda. But that does not take anything aay from the others. Well done.

3.5 Stars The Hunger is another steamy romance from author Donna Grant. This series gets better with each book. The Hunger is the second book of the Rogues of Scotland series, a story of 4 best friends that are cursed.  The curse is their punishment for a causing harm to a Gypsy.  The Hunger is the story of Morcant and it begins just the same as in first book, The Craving. After 200 years of being trapped in darkness he is magically released and meets Leana.  Leana has lost all her family and has been living a lonely life by choice.  She fears that if she cares for someone they will eventually leave her, just as her family has. The curse brings them together and they heal each other from their loneliness. I enjoyed The Hunger more than The Craving.  The difference for me was the time spent on developing the characters.  Since The Craving was the first book of the series it focused mainly on the dreaded night the curse was made and also on the main character Rogan’s lack of trust.  But with The Hunger Morcant and Leana are given equal attention so I felt a stronger connection with these characters. Both characters have lived their lives but they were never satisfied.  They were missing passion all those years until they met each other.  The Hunger has the romance and excitement that I expect from author Donna Grant.  But I do wish it was a little longer because I didn’t want this to end! Overall I did like the story and I look forward to reading more in the series.  This is perfect for all Highlander romance fans that want a quick and steamy read!

The Hunger begins just the same as The Craving had, back in the 1400’s with Ronan and his three friends Daman, Stefan, and Morcant. Only this book was from Morcant’s POV. Morcant in the beginning of this story heard the words of a gypsy woman and assumed she meant one thing and bedded her as well. Only apparently she really was supposed to be someone very important person in the gypsy community and future of their families, so… Morcant, taking her innocence was a big deal. But after that, he went to stick up for Ronan and stop Ilinca, the gypsy that cursed Ronan, only to have a curse of his own. Also in a dark, silent, solitude of nearly 200 years of a prison, he was cursed similarly to Ronan had been in book 1.  I was pulled into this book so quickly that I had to force myself to slow down and really absorb the information, paying attention to the details laid in all over the place and not read like I was starving for the next page... lol  Leana is a very strong woman, been left behind by pretty much everyone in her life by her entire family’s passing away slowly, and some abruptly. She has had to figure out a lot on her own, hunting, cooking, protecting herself... It is 1609 you know… a lone woman was a risk of being taken advantage of… Leana also has visions, which is what brings her and Morcant to meet. Leana inadvertently releases Morcant from his prison and feeds him dinner… this was just the beginning of a few stubborn events haha! Morcant had always been a free soul, sort of “looking for something” per his mother. He never had a feeling of belonging and fullness, he was always just a shell of what he could be.  Until Leana… The pure animal magnetism and raw emotion, that went along with the two of them was awe striking to say the least.  During the battle… wait, no… Leana had a vision while she was with Morcant that had me thinking and the way everything came together worked out splendidly. Enough so, that I giggled out loud with something like “He’s right there!!” and “Ha! Just look at em go! Wait till they see it!” so loudly in a silent room that my fiancé thought I had lost my mind… gave me one of those “smile and wave boys” sort of look haha!!!  This book leaves me to where I can’t wait to read what the fate of Stefan and Daman had happen to them and if they too suffered a 200 year curse as well… and why.  I give this book 5 out of 5 shields!
