The Highlander Trilogy starts with Highlander Unchained, continues in Forbidden Highlander and ends with Highlander’s Captive, which is about Cree’s sister Wintra, though Cree and Dawn are part of that book as well.
Cree and Dawn’s story haunted me for some time and was a challenge since Dawn cannot speak. Her disability made their love story all the more special and poignant.
Some readers have asked me why this was a continuous story from book to book. I realized when I started writing it that I couldn’t do Cree and Dawn’s story justice in one book. It wouldn’t be fair to the characters and certainly not fair to my readers to rush the story. And so the trilogy was born. Do I have plans of writing another continuous story… not presently. But I can’t say I won’t ever do another one since I never know what my characters have in store for me until they introduce themselves.
Highlander’s Captive has a release date of fall 2013.
The infamous warrior Cree is paraded before the village Dowell and though shackled and wounded he walks with arrogant pride, meeting all the curious and fearful stares of the villagers with a fierceness that has them quickly turning their heads away, all but one woman.
Dawn cannot keep her eyes off the captured warrior, though tales of his exploits suggests he’s more devil than man. When his eyes meet hers, she wonders if the notorious tales are true for only the devil himself could be that sinfully handsome.
Dawn is summoned by the liege lord Colum and ordered to tend Cree, in all ways possible, while he awaits his fate, and please him she must or suffer the consequences. Colum laughs when he issues his orders. He’s sending not only a plain woman to please the mighty warrior in his final days, but one he’ll find no pleasure with. After all, what man wants a woman who cannot utter a sound.
But no shackles can hold Cree and when he breaks free he returns to claim the voiceless woman who found a way into his silent heart.
Cree and Dawn’s story continues in Forbidden Highlander.
Dawn struggles to accept her future as Cree’s mistress while his future bride Lucerne Gerwan arrives in the village. But there is more for her to worry over. The attempts on her life continue and she fears Cree’s reaction when he learns that she carries his child.
The situation grows worse when warriors from the McClusky clan arrive in the village and the laird Kirk McClusky claims that Dawn is his daughter. Dawn wonders if it can be true and though her father insists she return home with him, she knows her love for Cree will never allow her to leave him. She cannot envision life without him.
Cree faces many obstacles in ensuring Dawn will be his, the hardest being his own failure to tell Dawn how he truly feels about her. But when she is taken from him, his temper rages and nothing stops him from bringing her home. He cannot think of life without her.
Cree and Dawn battle old secrets that finally surface and threaten to tear them apart. And it is with strength and courage that they fight for their love and a future together.
I bought Forbidden Highlander on accident. Determined to get my monies worth I read it. I liked it so much I had to go back and buy the first one. I love Cree and Dawn’s story, its touching. Also there was mystery, I wasn’t sure what the out one would be. Can’t wait for the next!
Raygina, I’m so glad you enjoyed Cree and Dawn’s story. I so enjoyed writing it.
I love this series!!! When will the next book be out?
The third book in the trilogy has a tentative date of late spring.
Still waiting for the third book. Dying…. When do I get to learn about Dawn’s baby?!?
The third book in the Highlander Trilogy will be available fall 2013.
I just loved Dawn and Cree’s story one of my all time favorite stories

I am anxiously awaiting the third book !!! It has been a long time since I could lose myself in a book .. thank you so much for such a brilliant story!!!
Come on book three your fans await! !
Thanks so much for letting me know how much you’ve enjoyed Cree and Dawn’s story. The couple hold a special spot in my heart!
Thank you for Cree and Dawn’s story. I love all the characters. I know I sometime imagines what happens after the story ends. Thank you for letting us see a little more of their future…like how Dawn will be as a Mom =). I hope that maybe you will write a story about Dawn’s brother. It would be interesting to know of his life with his sister Theresa .Final thanks to listening to us the reader… it means alot. Take care,
Deborah, so glad you enjoyed Cree and Dawn’s story. I’m so pleased to be continuing it. I love writing about the two. And be assured you will be hearing about Dawn’s brother!
I have so enjoyed reading all the books I’ve bought and downloaded so far – I still have plenty still to download onto my kindle. Dawn and Crees story has had me gripped that I can’t wait for the third book. You say perhaps Spring 2013, I’m from SA so when would that be. Hope you still have plenty more stories to write !!
I’ve hit a delay so it will probably be 3 to 4 months before the third book in the Highlander Trilogy becomes available. And yes, I do have many, many more stories to write.
I love all your books as I have stated previously but HIghlander TRilogy is the best. Love Cree & Dawn. Can’t wait for book 3 to come out, hopefully 4,5,6 etc. where we will read about Dawns half brother. Thank you for the hours of pleasure your books have given me
Glad to hear you’re a fan of my books, with the Highlander Trilogy a favorite. You’ll get to read about Torr, Dawn’s half-brother in the third book.
Please any information when the last book is coming??? I cant wait to read it! Thank you!!!
Due to unexpected delays it will be three to four months before the book is available.
I spent the last two days reading these wonderful books and can not wait for the third…Cree & Dawn are such a wonderfully unique couple. I read many books and I have to say they are now in my top all time fav list. Bravo to the Highlander Trilogy and thank you for your special gift of writing. Also have to put in a bravo for Irish Devil….another wonderful book and couple.
Thanks, Stacey, so glad you enjoyed the books.
I purchased Highlander Unchained last weekend, read it and fell in love with the story. Was surprised when I got to the end and found out there was a book 2. I immediately purchased book 2 and am enjoying it tremendously. Such a touching story between Cree and Dawn. Looking forward to reading book 3 when its released. Well done Donna, thank you for such a wonderful story for us all to enjoy.
Thanks so much, Patty. I’m so glad you enjoyed Cree and Dawn’s story. I so enjoyed writing about them and that their story will continue.
I must say i am very anxious about the third book, even though i have read almost all your books and i love them,i must say i have a complain cause in the twins series you kind of left their brother story in the air and i would really like to read a book about him. In the meantime i guess i would read all your books all over again, i have read Cree and Dawn’s story so much that i know it by heart. I just love it!
I hope to do a book about the twin’s brother. He’s on my heroes-to-write list. Happy to know you enjoyed Cree and Dawn’s story!
Nooo…just finished book 2 in the trilogy and need to get my hands on book 3! When will it be available?? Cree and Dawn need to get married, have their baby and save Wintra. They can’t wait and neither can I! 🙁
Right now release time for the third book looks to be around late summer or early fall. Believe me Cree is as impatient as everyone else for the book to be done. 🙂
Loved, loved, LOVED Cree and Dawn! So much so that even though I can’t wait for the third
book, I know it will be well worth the wait! Their story had me gripped from the first page!
So glad you’ve enjoyed Cree and Dawn’s story. It’s a favorite of mine!
I’m just starting out now with Highlander Unchained and I’m gripped already. But I have an e-book from Kobo and there are many editing errors, “least” instead of “lest” for example. Does Kobo have an old version? I have to read some sentences several times to figure out what is correct.
I have to check on that. When Kobo had that problem in the UK and took down books mine got caught up in it. It was around the time I was up loading the newly edited ones. Thanks for letting me know.
