Elaine Hawthorn is a gray American werewolf, currently out of work, and on a mission to share in a family treasure. When she arrives in Scotland, she nearly has a head-on collision with one hot, kilt-garbed Highlander, and runs him off the road.
Werewolf laird Cearnach MacNeill isn't happy Elaine ruined his car, but he quickly becomes her protector after a misunderstanding lands her right in the middle of two feuding clans. Now he's out to ensure that this sexy female wolf gets her fair share of her clan's treasure. He knows he should leave well enough alone, but it's too late to leave his heart out of it.
This is #11 in the Heart of the Wolf series by Terry Spear. I'm not sure what other couples in this book have been featured before, but I was quickly caught up in Terry Spear's shifter mythology.
Although there is quite a bit of repetition in the narrative, I enjoyed this fast-paced read.
Cearnach first briefly met Elaine in 1785. He looked for her for weeks afterwards. Wish he had found her, as her life was pretty much hell for a very long time afterward. We then jump forward to current time and bonny Scotland.
Elaine is an alpha she-wolf, but it took her a long time to grow into that part of her. Her wolf is totally into Cearnach when they next meet...just after she runs him off the road. Of course, it was HIS fault, but he took charge of the situation, and car, and her! She remembers him from so very long ago, but he's just a bit confused as to where they met before.
When they meet, he was heading to a Highland wedding and once he got a good sniff of her she-wolf, he had to take her with him. His protective instincts are fully engaged when she takes a punch to the face for him at the wedding.
There's some mystery as to why she has been invited to Scotland by her long-lost relatives. There's a treasure hunt in the background of their romance. I was particularly pleased when this author lets this couple get together rather quickly, just in time for the other shoe to fall.
I enjoyed their "wolfie" time together as they ran and explored. Also made me laugh that the shifters had dogs, Irish Wolfhounds and Standard Poodles. Elaine thought about bringing dachshunds into the mix. That should happen in a future book...lol
You'll note that I tagged this as both Historical and Contemporary Romance, as we got to see the MCs in both time frames. I enjoyed that little twist.
I will definitely be reading more from this author. Must see those other hot Highlander shifters find their mates!
