    1. It was a sweet story of a Highlander being cursed by a gypsy because of his wicked ways towards women and finding love against the odds of the curse. It was not bad (if not bad is only what you look for) but I just couldn't find this "highlander feeling" that makes me come back to choosing highlander books again and againIt was like eating jello when all you craved was chocolate!Both are good, depending on the craving of the time! Well, I WANTED CHOCOLATE and.It is a matter of personal taste tha [...]


    2. ¿Donde hay que firmar para que se reescriba el libro y sea más extenso? Jajajaja Me recordó mucho a Amante de Ensueño de Sherrilyn creo que era, que el chico salía de un libro. Bueno pues esta historia es parecida solo que este es un Highlander maldecido por una gitana. Jo en serio me hubiera gustado que fuese un poco más largo porque me tenía totalmente enganchada 😍 Ronan es mucho ❤️


    3. Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Chelle:*eARC received from the authorThe Craving was a sweet and sexy tale - Gypsy curses, hot men in kilts, medieval castles, and the kind of love that comes as a surprise, burrows deep within without being recognized, and then blossoms unexpectedly in breathtaking fashion. I loved that both Meg and Ronan had some major issues with trust, and yet they grew with one another and learned to let someone else in while healing along the way. I also love [...]


    4. A quick and fun read for those who love steamy highland romance but don't have a lot of time or energy to invest in a full length novel. The story, while not unique, was well told and the development was well done given the perimeters and length.


    5. Originally Reviewed For: Tea and BookDonna Grant understands the Scottish Heart and shows it once again in this delightful first book of her Rogues of Scotland Series. The Rogues of Scotland, "Four Highlanders whose bond of brotherhood finds each of them cursed. It'll take special women willing to break the curse - and bet on love."The Rogues are four men connected by bonds of friendship so deep they consider each other brothers. But when they are cursed into utter blackness, destined to remain [...]


    6. THE CRAVING is the first book in Donna Grant’s new series ROGUES OF SCOTLAND. And what an introduction the book was.Ronan Galt and Meg Alphin are kindred spirits. Both are wounded souls wronged in some way or fashion by the opposite sex. This causes trust issues.Ronan’s stems from his mother and sister while Meg was jilted at the altar with her groom-to-be running off with her dowry and another woman. So I found the common ground between the two appropriate. I felt that sometimes it takes tw [...]


    7. The Craving by Donna Grant is the first book in the Rouges of Scotland series and it did not disappoint! As always, Donna delivers a wonderful book that is full of love, adventure and magic. The magic portrayed in The Craving is different from other magic we have seen in Donna's books. This one is about the magic of a gypsy who sends Ronan to a world of darkness until his time comes to learn his destiny and give into love. Meg is a woman hiding and trying to recover from the hurt of a man who di [...]


    8. I received an eArc from the author in exchange for an honest review. This is the first book in Donna's Rogues of Scotland series and WOW! I realize its a fast read and all, but I so loved this book. Ronan and meg both have trust issues when it pertains to the opposite sex. This book was so amazing to get to read as we went through the repair of the two working together to prove that everything has a reason. I loved that this wasn't instant romance either though! I have been getting quite bored w [...]


    9. Review will be posted atbooks-n-kisses MBER OF HEARTS: 4 1/4 A broken heart A death and curse.When you live in the dark for so long it is easy to give up faith of ever seeing the sun again. But when the chance at freedom presence itself Ronan is willing to do anything to gain his freedom again. Meg knows about heartbreak and distrust. While she was never giving a second chance, Meg is willing to give Ronan a chance to live. And maybe love? The Craving is first novella in Donna Grant’s new the [...]


    10. I enjoyed this sweet and passionate novella. After being cursed to spend eternity trapped in darkness, highlander Ronan is finally granted his freedom by sweet, innocent Meg. But unless he can prove his worth he is destined to be pulled back into his prison. I enjoyed watching the spark grow between Ronan and Meg and look forward to the next book in this series.


    11. Too shortseriously if you are looking for a good read, don't read this.I literally finished it in less than an houre story wasn't that captivating either


    12. She always delivers the good ones.This didn't take long for it to get me caught up. The idea of being cursed to the mirror for abusing someone's heart is pretty clever. It tickled the heck outta me. Its what caught my eye to begin with. I liked how simple the story flowed. There were a few questions I'd have liked to see answered. Hopefully we'll get three more books in this series. I cannot wait to get my hands on them.


    13. Awesome StoryThe Craving by Donna Grant is a wonderful, heartwarming story. I was grabbed right at first and held until the very end. Real page Turner. Loved the characters and how they worked their problems, fears out. My opinion. Thanks




    14. The first in a new series, this is an absolutely enchanting read! Taken from my review at RomanceJunkies:Ronan Galt and his three friends, all from different clans, but as close as brothers, went to the gypsy camp together. Ronan had been there before and was fascinated with a dark haired gypsy girl named Ana. They had been spending nights in each other’s arms, finding pleasure in each other. But on this night, Ana asked him when they would wed. That had never been in his plans and he told her [...]


    15. **3 1/2 Stars**This is a nice little story, well written, with nice characters, and an entertaining storyline. It's not the usual sort of Highland romance, with sexy sword wielding Highland lairds and feuding clans. From the book blurb I expected this might be the case, yet still I had hope--I'm inordinately fond of Highland romances. LOL Anyhow, the story that unfolded, although not exactly what I had hoped for, was still very engaging. Ronan, a Highland warrior in 1427, runs afoul of a gypsy w [...]


    16. Oh what a way to start a series! And, apparently I have been under a rock – since I’m only starting to discover the fun that is a Donna Grant book. Cleverly mixing Romany Gypsy curses in the early 15th century Scottish Highlands as we meet Ronan and his friends Morcant, Stefan and Daman as they ride off for adventure and fun in the distant hills where the Gypsies have a small camp. The series is called Rogues of Scotland, a most apt titling for their free moments when they gather and escape [...]

    21. This book was just okay because it was too short. It was just a little novella, but it left me with some unanswered questions.The hero, Ronan, was a young man out to have some fun and sow some oats.

When he made it clear that he would not be marrying her, she took her own life, which resulted in Ronan being cursed by an old gypsy woman.Unfortunately, Ronan had brought three of his friend with him to the gypsy camp, and th [...]

    25. Received an E ARC from author for a honest review. The Craving is the first book in the Rouges of Scotland series by Donna Grant.

    26. 4 1/2 StarsThe Craving is a historical romance with a magical twist and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Ronan is your typical happy go lucky guy, a man out for a good time with no thought to the consequences of his actions until one day when he crosses a Gypsy family and he is subsequently cursed. Meg is a young girl with issues and when fate brings her and Ronan to each other they both must left go of the past if they want to achieve happiness together.

He as cursed by a gypsy to stay there until he has earned his freedom. He thinks women don't really love men they just use them [...]


    28. While the book didn't go quite what I was expecting, it was a good read. The description I read made me think this was a regular 'time-travel' type of book -- the hero gets cursed and winds up in a different century -- he was only transported from the 1400s to the 1600s, which is unusual to me. While I found the characters and the story in the long run satisfying, I have read many of Donna's other books and I think she could have stretched it out quite a bit longer. I wanted to see the love inte [...]
