Donna Grant was truly able to reveal a detailed picture of a strange and dangerous world. She did an incredible job of making this mystical world and its inhabitants come to life. However, the Druids remain elusive and mysterious, especially regarding a prophecy involving three sisters who had been parted years ago. The author begins the series with the MacNeil Laird murdering the parents and two young girls, whom he assumed were Glenna's siblings, also connected to the 300-year-old prophecy of
A prophesy, highlanders, druids, and the fae. It got my attention! Lately I’ve been reading a lot of science-fiction and mystery books, thus was craving a change. Highland Mist was my first book by Donna Grant. However, it wasn’t all that I expected.

Glenna had always been isolated for she was feared by her clan for her druid abilities, never having been trained. When chance presents itself, she escapes with Conall as he abducts her . Also a druid, he has turned his back on his powers. Of
A big huge... yawn.

I've been meaning to try a Donna Grant book for a while now and this was a great price on Amazon, so I thought: why the heck not? It's as good as any to try out, right? Wrong!! I just couldn't get into this at all! So, I basically ended up skimming the story looking for "good" bits - and even then I was sorely disappointed. Blush, indeed.

I'm not ready to give up on Donna Grant yet, though. The much lauded 'Dark Sword' series looks promising...

First thought when finished: I will be getting the rest of the series and checking out other books by Donna Grant!

What I Loved: This was a brilliant mix of Historical Romance with a little magic. I haven't read a Druid based book in ages and found myself fascinated with bits of druid history that Donna Grant included. I loved all of the characters and really looking forward to

I've read a few of Ms. Grant's books before and when I saw this discounted on Amazon, thought I'd pick it up. The story starts off with a druid prophecy surrounding 3 girls, two of which are murdered along with their parents. The third child, a baby is taken by MacNeil to raise as his own.

Glenna, is very young, isolated, and unsure of her abilities. She has been feared by her clan and her powers abused by her father. When she sees her chance to escape, she takes it offering herself up as

A 300 year old prophecy gives Laird Connall MacInness the opportunity to exact his revenge but to do so will cost him…his mate and the future of Scotland in this captivating paranormal romance.

Glenna MacNeil only wants to be free so she eagerly goes with the powerful laird who fights her clan and readers can’t help but get caught up in the story as Glenna’s decision sets events in motion that will change the course of their lives. The chemistry is a smoldering sizzle that flares brighter the

Highlanders, Druids, and Fae, Oh my!

What a wonderful world of historical with a juicy PNR twist. Ms. Grant has created a world of allies and foes, full of drama and betrayals, not to mention the romance. I enjoyed this book aaahhh LOT!

Glenna MacNiel was raised by the very man who killed her family. Her adoptive father raised her to use her powers and deep inside she knew something was amiss and knew she was but a pawn to her fathers' success and power. She felt like a prisoner, but a Druid

I'm not sure how I came across Donna Grant. My guess it was MySpace that did it. But I soon discovered her blog. Each week she picks a name from a commenter and gives them a free book. When I won, I asked her to pick any one of her books, preferably a first book of a series (which rather limited her to two or three books). I am so very glad that she chose this one for me.

I completely fell in love with the world Donna has created for this series. And she did a masterful job laying

The Druids Glen series brings the magic of the Highlands to life with druids, fae and the magical mists that are so prevalent in Scottish folklore. The narrator, Ruth Urquhart, did a good job with the narration. She has great performance ability and is able to handle male and different female affectations with ease.

This series starts off with a prophecy and the brutal murder of the Sinclair clan and kidnapping of the youngest daughter, Glenna, by the ruthless MacNeil laird. Thinking to use

(This review may contain spoilers).

I went through a brief period of being interested in reading about Scottish romances - specifically, highlanders. When I did a search on Amazon, this was one of the books that came up. And when I read the blurb, it looked really interesting (druids interest me quite a lot).

I really liked Glenna and Conall. I thought they worked quite well together and I liked the characters. When I read the blurb originally, I was worried that it might be a violent romance,

What a pleasant surprise to come into a series fully expecting mediocrity and encountering a magical book full of wonderful characters and solid writing. Highland Mist tells of Glenna, the youngest of three Druid sisters who are prophesied to end the reign of evil MacLain, a despot who's been butchering the land and its peoples for some time. She is rescued by Conall, a Highland laird who has sworn to protect the Druids even as he denies his own Druid blood. I will definitely be on the lookout ...more

This book was a really fast read that kept me hooked. There is something that I found lacking in her writing. I'm not sure if it was the lack of details or what because I had just finished reading about 6 of Marsha Canham's books. Canham's books are very detailed and I could picture everything and imagine a movie being made from it. This book was still great and I can't wait to finish the whole series.

After reading the prologue and screaming, I knew this was going to be a good one. I'm like, totally crying now because of all the emotions inside of me. I am so unbelievably frustrated because two bad guys have still not died! I am excited about the rest of the series but I can't seem to read them fast enough to satisfy my blood thirst.

Connall and Glenna are hotttt!!!! Donna Grant writes some seriously hot books. Glenna has lead a lonely existence until she meets Connall MacInness. She's never even been outside of her castle walls until Connall takes her as "hostage" in order to trade her for his sister Iona who has disappeared. Love the Druids and the magic. Just so wish this fiction was non-fiction....

A Highland adventure filled with Druids and sexy manly Highlanders. Three Druid women must come together, meet their mates and fulfill their destinies. This book is based on the youngest sister and her terrible past and finding her possible future. If she can get a certain Highlander to love her.
A very romantic story, with gentle love making and a lot of rippled chests.

Loved it-- it's only the 3rd or 4th Highlander romance I've read-- I'm trying to catch up but it's SO hard. I bought this after seeing an announcement that some of Donna's backlist was on sale. I read it nonstop. Romance, magic, druids, sword play, and kilts--men in kilts. Need I say more?

I’ve had this sitting for months in my nook waiting to be read. I don’t know why the hell I couldn’t get into it from the prologue but it just wasn’t time apparently. Now that I have read it I certainly regret waiting. Now I will need to binge read the rest!

Connall MacInness is Laird to his clan and when his sister goes missing, he makes it his mission to get her back from the MacNeil at any cost. Even “taking” his daughter, Glenna, as “hostage”. I put them in quotations because I don’t consider

So, this is probably better than 2 stars, because it was readable. However, it was full of inconsistencies and simplistic reactions. The characters were shallow and were not particularly smart. The book sets things up nicely for future stories with a likely relationship between Moira and one of the Warriors, and we can also expect something to happen between Gideon and the another girl.

Overall, I found Glenna to be strangely naive given her upbringing. She always kept her chamber clean, even

I liked a lot about this book. I even liked Connall, but... I have this thing about heroes that are trying to deny their lust for the heroine by allowing other women to "satisfy" them. He attempts this twice, both times being caught by Glenna (Heroine). That is one quick way to pull me out of a story and make me want to light someone's pants on fire. Anyway, other than that (it goes no further than touching either time), I enjoyed this one. The characters, the world building, the lore involved ...more

Too much sex. Never thought I would say that but the storyline couldn’t carry it. I didn’t even finish it. Every single chapter was mostly sexual interactions. I would call this soft porn at best. Won’t be reading sequels either.

This is the first in the Druid Glen series and is connected to the Shield and the Royal Chronicles by Mystic Trinity (formally known as Dragonfyre). This book was enjoyed via Audible Escape.

Glenna, youngest of three sisters, is a druid that is a part of a 300-year-old prophecy. Kidnapped shortly after birth she has no idea that she is being raised by the very man she is suppose to help end. When her home is being attacked, she goes willing with the Laird of the rival clan, because a druid
I found this book years ago on a free book listing site. This is the first book I ever read from Donna Grant and I'm still reading her books.
They're well-written the characters are very evolved. You'll laugh you'll cry you want to climb in there and smack some of them across the top of the head.
I won't go into details of the plot because the description doesn't a way better job than I would ever do.
Buy it, read it, you'll be hooked too.

An interesting Druid series . I read this series a couple of years ago and loved it. But at the time there was only three books. Excited about the warriors and druids and Fae I won't say much more but if your like me and love stories about any of what I mentioned. You will not be disappointed.

Truly good.

The love of two people, the finding of truths and a beginning of a new series. The acceptance of something unwanted.
