[Archive] LITERAL ADDICTION's Review of The Craving

Donna Grant is the award winning author of more than twenty novels spanning multiple genres of romance – Scottish Medieval, historical, dark fantasy, time travel, erotic, and paranormal.

Donna 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.

Her childhood dream was to become a professional ballet dancer and study under the amazing Mikhail Baryshnikov. Though she never got to meet Baryshnikov, she did make it to New York City and performed in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Later, Donna’s love of the romance genre and the constant stories running through her head prompted her to sit down and write her first book. Once that book was completed, there was no turning back.

Despite the deadlines and her voracious reading, Donna still manages to keep up with her two young children, three cats, and one long haired Chihuahua. She’s blessed with a proud, supportive husband who’s learned to cook far more than frozen chicken nuggets.

You can find Donna online at her Website as well as on Facebook, Twitter and Goodreads.

Resigned to a lonely life after a fierce betrayal of the man who broke her spirit, Meg Alpin retreats to her family’s castle. In her pursuit to move on with her life, she uncovers long buried secrets and discovers something magical amidst the furniture in the tower. In one instant, her dull world is given bright new meaning in the form of a Highlander too magnificent, too handsome to be real.


Cursed and caged in a mirror by a gypsy, Ronan Galt’s existence is complete darkness and unquenchable need. When he’s brought back into the light, his distrust of women is at odds with his instant attraction to the beautiful and strong Meg. In his quest to be free of his prison, he will learn the true meaning of love – but will it be too late to claim the woman that was destined to be his?

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Chelle:
*eARC received from the author

The 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 loved that though this was a novella, it never once felt rushed to me. The story was gripping, and the flow perfectly paced to a wonderful story.

An easily earned 4 skulls!
