The Eternal Highlander: Nightriders / The Highland Bride
The Eternal Highlander Nightriders / The Highland Bride Author:Hannah Howell, Lynsay Sands With the current popularity of "creatures of the night" and all things Scottish, this pair of linked stories scores a double hit as it takes two not-quite-mortal Highland cousins determined to break the ancient curse that binds their inbred clan to darkness and bloodlust and brings them each the one thing that can accomplish this -- a ... more »mortal bride. But there are those in the clan who like things the way they are; and as the cousins make wedding plans, others plot something far more sinister.
Writing together for the first time, New York Times bestselling authors Hannah Howell and Lynsay Sands present the darkly passionate story of two men sworn to conquer the hunger that pounds in their blood -- and the women who may be their only salvation...
HIS LOVE WILL LIVE FOREVER...
Cathal MacNachton and Connall MacAdie are cousins bound by far more than blood ties and the rugged Highland landscape their clan calls home. The ancient curse of their ancestry has fated them to live by night with an unquenchable thirst that neither can tame. The only thing that can save their souls is marriage to Outsiders -- mortals whose untainted blood will weaken the curse in their children, and break the chains of fear that have made their clan a breed apart.
Bridget Callan and Eva Caxton are the women who will shape the clan's destiny. Marriage to these strange and mysterious men rescues each of them from desperate circumstances -- and draws them into a web of danger, desire, and intrigue.
But Eva and Bridget refuse to be pawns in the battle that erupts as the future of the cursed clan hangs in the balance -- a war that must be fought after the sun sets over the deep, still lochs. Whatever the outcome, they'll stand strong by their brooding warrior lairds, willing and able to face down their enemies -- and fulfill their desire for eternal love....« less
Two authors, both with lots of other books, wasted my time putting together this one book. I found the stories boring, because both of the women characters, well they were just lacking. Read it, then put it up for a trade. not a keeper.
The 1st story by Hannah Howell was great it drew me in and kept me reading and wanting more but when I got to the second story by Lynsay Sands, whose historical novels I dearly love, I felt let down. There was none of the humor that I look for in her stories and the the writing was just bland. Oh well I guess you can't like them all :o) For this reason this book only got 3 stars from me.
