Two wandering souls discover that true love needs no words in this explosive, fantastical novel from Vonnie Davis.
Somehow able to telepathically communicate with animals, Paisley Munro has found meaning in her so-called gifts by working as a veterinary assistant. But while traveling to Scotland for a relative’s funeral, Paisley fears that she really has lost her mind. Out in the highlands, she hears distinctly human thoughts coming from a wild bear. Terrified and desperate, she returns to the lodge and collapses in the powerful arms of its owner, a mysterious man with whom she shares a simmering attraction.
Creighton Matheson and his fellow shape-shifters have been roaming this land freely for centuries. Now Paisley may inherit his home, putting his kind in grave danger. His mistrust only deepens when he realizes she can read his mind. Yet he cannot deny that this tantalizing woman makes him burn with desire—and hunger for the prospect of a tender love. Now Creighton must decide which would hurt more: revealing the truth or losing Paisley forever.
I had just discovered this title a few days ago, and when I saw a recommendation for this one, I knew I needed to try it out, especially since it was at a discounted price…and it was well worth the price and more!! I was actually surprised by how much I enjoyed this story…and if you like sexy highland shifter were bears…than this is a story you HAVE to check out.
A Highlander’s Obsession is the first book the series, and it starts out with Paisley Munro, who is accompanying her grandmother, to Scotland, to be a witness to a will for her grandmother’s uncle. When they arrive, they have been escorted by some handsome Scots with kilts and on their way to the Lodge, where the Matheson’s have invited them to stay, she starts to hear thoughts from a bear that is human in nature. Paisley has certain gifts, where she can communicate with animals, but she has never before been able to hear human thoughts before. When she meets Creighton, those thoughts become more pronounced, and she comes face to face with a man who acts like he commands the world, but can’t resist his sensual nature or the way he brings feelings for him out in her.
This story was quite a sensational read. This is a shifter romance, which involves shifter bears (sexy hunkiness), who in their human forms, they are Scots…what is more sexy right? Creighton is pure alpha male, leader of his clan, and when he meets Paisley, he is captivated. She isn’t his normal type of woman, but finds her stunning, and desires to claim her as his mate, despite the fact that she is just here for a visit or that she is engaged. Paisley is a woman of courage and most of her life she has been mocked for her gift, but here in Scotland, she learns that she can truly be accepted for who she really is. Even though she is engaged to another man, she starts to fall in love with Creighton, who makes her feel things she has never experienced.
I loved the connected that Creighton and Paisley have for each other. Creighton well…one sexy beast!! I adored this hero, he is commanding, has quite a attitude when it comes to have Pasiley as his own, he is the type to carry a woman over his shoulder if she is being stubborn. Paisley is a strong heroine, and I felt her so easy to relate with…I could see us being best friends in another life. What I also liked was seeing some conflict that pays a vital role in the plot and really keeps your senses alive. There was quite a bit of depth to this story and the romance was just so sweet yet passionate. I loved the family, and I can’t wait till the next book comes out…yay for sexy shifter bear brothers who wear kilts and have irresistible brogues. Overall this story was exciting, playful, and highly romantic….truly a keeper!! A Must read for your shelves!!
