I've just received a truly awesome review from JERR (Just Erotic Romance Reviews) for Laird of Darkness. 4 1/2 stars.
"Duncan McDougall is known as the Laird of Darkness. He is the boogeyman used to scare the highland children, and the nightmare that awaits the unwary. He and his half-brother, Laird Kinnon MacClaren are sworn enemies. Blessed by their fae mother, Kinnon was given the secret to escaping the fae curse that torments Duncan. Driven to near madness by the curse, Duncan takes Kinnon’s fiancé, Lady Alana Forbes, hostage. She is to be exchanged for the golden bow and arrows that will free Duncan from his hell.
What a wonderfully, sexy book this is! I absolutely loved everything about Laird of Darkness. One of the things that scare me off trying new historicals is the fear of weak heroines. Not so in this book. Alana was just as strong willed as both men and not timid in the least. Nor was she a quivering virgin who whimpered and thought of England. Duncan was the epitome of a sexy Scottish highlander, yet he had a vulnerable side that was very appealing. I just love a misunderstood bad boy, and by the end of the book, Duncan had vaulted himself into my favorite all time heroes list. The author, Nicole North, did an outstanding job of keeping the sexual interaction true to the time period, and still managed to make it intensely erotic to today’s sophisticated reader. Alana and Duncan set ye olde bed linens on fire, a lot. I really liked the fact that there was no true villain in this story. The ending left the door open for a more settled relationship between Duncan and Kinnon, which I would love to read about. If Kinnon’s story does come to pass I will definitely be on board."
