As one of the youngest men ever to have the title of general in ancient Rome's great army, fame and fortune were my bedmates. I was chosen by the Fae for my mastery of any weapon.

Though the Shields like to claim they are stronger because of my skills, I know I am only alive today because the Fae found me before my demons could put an end to my life. Adventure and

REVIEW: I had not read any of the previous storylines in Donna Grant’s Shields series and yet I did not feel that I was lost. Although there was mention of and, appearances by the characters from the first three stories, the storyline could have been read as a stand-alone. I did go back to read the synopsis for each of the previous storylines.

The premise that surrounds the series follows a group of ancient warriors, who with the help of the Fae, are tracking down and reuniting the remaining Chos

Review for the corrected version of Forbidden Temptation

If you like a paranormal romance, this book is for you! It's a story of intrigues and secrets of the Highlands of Scotland. I liked her characters Nicole, Val and Gabriel. Nicole is one of the chosen ones, but she doesn't know it. Val and Gabriel are Shields. They protect the chosen ones from the evil mythological creatures wreaking on Earth. Nicole was raised in the Highlands and kept hidden from evil so she might have a future. Val is a S

A Forbidden Temptation was fantastic with a lot of suspense, intrigue, twists and turns and steamy romance. We delve into good versus evil knowing that each Shield will find his one true love and ultimately conguer the demons enforced from the evil one. Book 4 is Val's story and how he overcomes his painful past and believing he doesn't deserve love only to realize that finding love with his mate Nicole, freed him from his painful past. Donna creates such vivid imagery with her writing that the ...more

WOW!! I adored Val's story! This was a wonderful book full of adventure, friends, love and action! I love learning more about Donna's characters and 'watching' them fall in love! I love how all of these men try to push away the women they cannot live without! Val's story has been my favorite of the shields, thus far! I cannot wait for the final story! Thank you for yet another book, that left me wanting more Donna!

Finally, we get to learn Val's back story! He fascinated me since he is one of the few mortals left in the shields and he is from ancient Rome. This story is picking up with the Great Evil getting more hands on in the fight. I liked Nicole but she's not my favorite heroine in this series. I can't wait for the next book in the series so we can find out more about Gabriel! January 22 can't get here fast enough!

This book contains some sexy times.

This story was good, not as good as her others in the series, but I wasn't ever drawn in much by Val.. in this book I found he had succumbed to his weakness too easily. I am really looking forward to Gabriel's story...

Another awesome installment in THE SHIELDS series! I didn't love it as much as Cole's book, but I liked it a little bit better than Hugh's. I can't wait for Gabriel's story!
