I give this book 5 stars.
Well done, once again Terry Spear you have given us a book that kept me engrossed from the start to the finish, so much so that I read this book in one day. This is about an american woman that inherits a castle in Scotland from her family and a pack of Highland wolf shifters that live there.
Grant has lived at the castle since birth and when his father died, he was the one that Neda Playfair the owner of the castle put in charge to run and manage it for her. He is also the clan leader and a big alpha wolf. When Neda died and her son was the owner Grant and him used to butt heads all the time, so when he died and his daughter then inherits the castle, Grant worries that she is going to be just as bad and argumentative has her father. So he planned on frightening her away as soon as he could by putting on a show for her that he thought she would not like. However, what he did not expect was a sexy alpha female wolf to arrive, who loved the show that he put on and proved this by filming it.
Colleen, Neda’s granddaughter, unbeknown to Grant and his clan is best friends with Julia who is married to Ian MacNeill, who is the other person Grant is sparring with and she had let her know part of what Grant had planned for her. Colleens father had lied to her and told her that the clan at the castle were humans so when she arrives and smells wolves she is surprised and Colleen is instantly attracted to Grant and this is their story of finding out about the past, old enemies, murders and love that they try to fight.
This is a well planned out story with a good plot and a great love story. Another one of my ‘must reads’.
The MacQuarrie werewolf clan has overseen the Playfair family’s Farraige Castle for three centuries. So when a Playfair granddaughter from abroad inherits the estate, clan chief Grant MacQuarrie has to train her to manage it—and he’s not happy about having her in his way. Until the prim old lady he’s expecting turns out to be a sexy young wolf…
Colleen Playfair is excited and apprehensive about her new role at the castle, and she has big plans to change the way its run. But the stubborn Grant won’t make things easy, and she’s forced to turn to seduction to get her way…
Grant always joked and played with his clansmen when they were through with their work for the day. Well, even while they worked. But being with Colleen here like this felt different. For a moment, he didn’t feel like he served as the manager of her estates while she was the owner and taskmaster. He felt like a man with a woman on a Sunday jaunt in the glen. Except she wasn’t just any woman. She was a she-wolf, her cute little arse jiggling ahead of him as he climbed the hill to join her.
When he reached the top, she was trying to catch her breath and swayed a little. He grabbed her arm, and he didn’t know what came over him. But suddenly he was looking down into her smiling face, as if she was smiling at him, and he wanted in the worst way to kiss her.
She didn’t pull away from him, either.
He shouldn’t kiss her, but damn, he wanted to.
Still breathing hard, her heart beating fast, she placed her hand on his chest. He expected her to push him away, but she didn’t. She just stood there looking up at him, waiting for him to do something. He breathed in her scent, all woman and…interested.
They stood high on top of the hill overlooking the glen, the water rushing by, the sheep grazing on the green grass across the burn, and white clouds passing overhead against the blue sky.
He still had hold of her arm, but then he released her, cupped her face with both hands, and kissed her.
When his lips met hers, he knew he shouldn’t do this. He intended to make it sweet and unassuming, to quench some damnable need that he had to satisfy. He didn’t presume it would go anywhere, and he almost imagined it would be lame and unappealing—-after having built up the expectation that kissing that sweet mouth of hers would make his world spin and topple over. He hadn’t thought she’d crave the intimacy as much as he did. Yet when she wrapped her arms around his neck and kissed him back, she exhibited an eagerness that turned his world on end.
She was more than willing.
