She's ready for change...
Colleen Playfair has never been to Scotland, but when she discovers she must spend a year and a day overseas learning to manage her newly inherited estate, she's ready for the challenge. She even has some ideas for improvements-if she can get past the sexy werewolf who seems convinced he's the one in charge.
But he's digging in his claws...
Grant MacQuarrie and his clan have been managing Farraige Castle for three centuries. The last thing he wants is a meddling American heiress trying to change the way things have always been done. He's more than willing to fight the she-wolf every step of the way, using every tool at his disposal. And if that means taking the lass to bed, well...all the better.
Locked in a battle of wills, caught in an attraction they can't escape, Colleen and Grant must find a way to work together...or face losing it all.
Grant MacQuarrie, and his family has been managing Farraige Castle for quite a long time. He has taken the responsibility of taking care of their clan and making sure everything goes smoothly even though he isn’t the owner of the castle that is his home and life. Then he hears that a American heiress is coming to his home to take a look and all he wants to do is everything he can to make sure she leaves as quickly as she arrives…but fate has other plans especially when you least expect it. Colleen, after hearing that she has inherited a Castle in Scotland, she makes plan to stay there. She plans on making it her home. Colleen is a wolf, and is determined to make a new life and start. Upon her arrival though, she knows that she isn’t fully welcomed, with Grant and his men trying to make the Farraige Castle seem authentic from the old days. What they don’t realize is that she loves history and she is enjoying all the attention, even knowing she isn’t fully welcomed. Before Grant realizes it he starts to make concessions for Colleen, and just can’t seem to turn her from him, all he wants is her kiss and her heart….but will Colleen crave him as he does her…
Hero Of A Highland Wolf is the 14th book in the series, and I swear this is one of my favorites so far. I just adored every aspect of the story and I couldn’t put this one down once I started into it. We see some old characters from past books, which was fun and hilarious and made the story seem even more enjoyable…the icing of the cake!! The story begins with Grant having a sword fight with Ian, a mock battle upon Colleen’s arrival. Grant is hoping to shock her, but what does she do? Video tapes it for Ian’s wife….from the beginning you get a kick start on the story that instantly pulls you in. The first half of the story is mainly Grant trying not to let himself care for Colleen, but he ends up wanting what he always denied. In the second half of the story the romance escalates and the plot thickens with Grant’s enemy…and quite some amusing antics with Ian and his wife Julia. There is a sense of playfulness and creativity which is perfect for a wolf shifter romance…they do love their play…and we see quite a play here of events that keep you more engaged with each page.
The characters in the story were lively and engaging. Grant…is your alpha wolf. Commanding, jealous, possessive and way too over protective, and with a hidden passion that will make you weak in the knees. The male who has had his share of women, and never thought of settling down….but Ian proves him wrong. There is such a male commadarie in the story and we see more of their friendship in this story. Colleen is best friends with Julia….a secret they have kept from the men until now. So they have some aces up their sleeves and know how to pull a wringer on their mates…Collen was such a fun and feisty heroine. She fights for what she believes, is passionate, and independent, but accepts love when she sees it.
Overall a wonderful display of wolf shifter romance, with some historical Scottish culture in a modern day setting, a sexy highlander wolf in a kilt (WOWZERS). a one of a kind heroine, sword fighting, pirate playacting, and some amusing scenes to keep you laughing for days!!! A engrossing story to steal your heart!! EXCELLENT!!
