Grant is a practiced hand at crafting her characters, allowing readers into their heads and under their skin, and building the tension between them to a fever pitch. The world of the Immortal Warriors is a thoroughly engaging one, blending powerful ancient gods, fiery desire and touchingly human love, which readers will surely want to revisit.
Desperate to discover the secret to binding the gods within them, the Immortal Warriors send Arran MacCarrick to join an archeological dig in Scotland, hoping to unearth a long-forgotten spell that could save them all. But when he meets the dig leader, Dr. Veronica Reid, Arran realizes that the stakes are higher than he ever could have expected. More than beautiful and desirable, Ronnie is a powerful Druid who is being pursued by a ruthless and ancient evil. Now, no matter his need for the spell or the hunger growing between them, Arran is left with no choice but to save the woman he loves — or die trying. (ST MARTIN’S, Jun., 384 pp., $7.99)
