ARC review Laird of Darkness by Nicole North

Title:Laird of Darkness
Author:Nicole North
Source: Netgalley
Genre- Historical erotic romance
Length: Novella
Authors website

Half-Fae Laird Duncan MacDougall is cursed. His nights are haunted by Otherworld creatures sent to kill him. The only way to stop them is to possess the magic bow currently in the hands of his enemy half brother, Kinnon MacClaren. In desperation, Duncan plans to take MacClaren's bride-to-be hostage and exchange her for the bow.

Lady Alana Forbes has never met her intended, but she hopes he is handsome—and a good lover, for Alana is no innocent virgin. On her way to Castle Claren, Alana and her escorts are intercepted, and she is kidnapped by a man with extraordinary abilities—and every attribute she longs for in a mate.

Duncan didn't expect the woman he thought of as a mere pawn to be so beautiful, and so arousing. Alana is drawn to him as well—but Duncan still needs the bow, and Alana is betrothed to another. How far will Alana go to save the life of the man she's come to love?



Laird of Darkness is a steamy erotic historical short story. I enjoyed the story more after I got past the middle of the book. I also enjoyed all the characters, but I was disappointed at the way it ended and I never really felt like I got into the whole story, too much was missing for me.

The sex is very, very hot and there is a nice connection between Duncan and Alana. The story goes some into Duncan past; I just never got to know much about Alana. Overall the book is a decent read I just wish the author would have gotten deeper with the characters and the story.
