Shape Shifter/Scottish Highlands Romance

Ian McNeill, laird of Argent Castle finds his capital squandered through unwise investments and the wolf clan's home that has been theirs for centuries is in danger of being forfeit for nonpayment of taxes. When a movie producer contacts him with the notion of using his castle to produce a movie, Ian abhores the idea, but it's his only salvation. Even worse, his people become extras in this epic Highland movie. But when one American werewolf romance author, Julia Wildthorn, slips into the castle under the guise of being with the movie company, except she is trying to jumpstart her muse with writing a book set in old-world Scotland--specifically about his castle and his people as the characters in her newest book venture--she and Ian tangle.
My Review
Julia, even though a werewolf romance author, has come to Scotland with more than one intention. Julia, has been charged by her grandfather to find a artifact that is hidden within the castle. Even with a hidden agenda, Julia can't resist the magic of the scenery surrounding her, or how much Laird Ian Macneill  makes her feel alive, both her human side and her wolf. However Ian is totall Alpha, leader of his people and his den, and doesn't like not being in control. Ian has had to be a leader for quite some time, and even though he hates strangers, and having a movie being produced at his home, is even more loathesome. However, Julia intrigues him, and his wolf only wants to get to know the little red even more. What he doesn't expect is to find Julia as his Mate...

The Hero 
Ian, is a tough highlander and alpha wolf and Laird over his clan. Even though it is the modern age, Ian and his people have managed to maintain tradition of the highlands. As the oldest of his brothers, he is the leader and as such has many responsibilites. Because they are in much debt, he knows he doesn't have much of a choice to let a filming crew in his home. But when he meets Julia, he senses something very suspicious about her, and is determined to find out what she is hiding. Only he never thought she would be the one to teach him about love.

The Heroine 
Julia, a royal and a red werewolf, also defies convention, and writes werewolf romance novels. However she is here in Scotland on a special mission by her grandfather. As much as she would like this to be a vacation for her, she knows her grandfather has good reason for sending her here. But finding a secret box hidden within the castle, will be no easy task, especially with Laird Ian around. What she doesn't expect is to find such a connection with him, where she finds herself falling madly for him...

My Thoughts 
Heart Of The Highland Wolf is the seventh in the series. I have just loved each and every book that I have read from this author. When I found this one at the library, and saw that not only did it have werewolf shifter, but was mixed in with a scottish highlands theme, I definitely could hardly wait to read it.   I have to say I didn't know when I started reading it how much I would like it....but I LOVED it!! Its by far my favorite book of the series. It was such a witty and engaging story, one that keeps the reader on their toes. There was one surprise after another and I felt myself feeling like laughing almost constantly. I loved both Ian and Julia. Ian is very alpha, commanding and domineering, the kind that is the 'he man' type. Which I found so amusing at times. Julia is feisty, stubborn and very headstrong. I found that together they created some heated chemistry. Overall a delightful and very engaging read that had me reading as fast as I could. I truly enjoyed the way this author mixed together a contemporary romance, with paranormal elements as well as some scottish highland culture mixed right in that made for the perfect balance for a outstanding read!!! It has to be one of the best werewolf romances I have had the pleasure of reading.  One you don't want to miss out on reading!!! (plus who could resist such a beautiful cover...deliciousness) A ADVENTUROUS RIDE OF ACTION, MYSTERY AND ROMANCE!!!

  1. I do love Highlander and wolf series. Love a sexy alpha male hero and even better when he meets a strong will, stubborn heroine. Beautiful review, I love her cat shifter series and can not wait to try this series. I have the newest from netgalley.
