Grant has some great characters in this novella. I loved the action and the storyline but felt that the HEA and the proclamations of love came on a little too swiftly.  ~ Under the Covers

In this Christmas novella featuring Rennie, a druid and Dale, a Warrior who used to work for the enemy are paired together in this short, but action-packed story.

When Rennie takes a fall and is unconscious, Dale helps her until she is on her feet again. Their romance is instant and quick, readying them for a test that will see how deep their emotions fun for one another. Harriet wants to buy off her land and when Rennie continues to refuse, Harriet takes more drastic measures.

Grant has some great characters in this novella. I loved the action and the storyline but felt that the HEA and the proclamations of love came on a little too swiftly. This is a short novella so I can understand the need to pace oneself, but the wrap up seemed too quick to really be believable. Also, considering this is a Christmas novella, I will say that the holiday theme is on the light side. It’s more of a sprinkle of Christmas cheer than anything else really.

All in all, this short in the Dark Warriors world was a pleasure to read.

About Donna Grant

Donna Grant is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the sizzling Dark King series featuring dragons, immortal Highlanders, and the Fae. 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. Despite deadlines and voracious reading, Donna still manages to keep up with her two children, four cats, and one long haired Chihuahua.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

I love the Dark Warriors, Donna Grant is an amazing author. I can’t believe she came out with a holiday story. I love holiday books, so even though short stories aren’t my favorite I WILL buy this one.

The holiday theme is quite light in this one, but the action and romance is fab.
