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.

I can't believe that I haven't read this series before, hot Scottish men, kilts, and werewolves?? Where do I sign up??? I fell in love with Terry Spear's writing not too long ago, when I saw that she had a few more coming out I clicked and prayed I would be approved and YESSSSS!!! They approved me. I'm pretty certain I danced a jig. Now you know how weird I am, let's move onto the review shall we.

Elaine is on the run from an unintended mating and she ran right into the man she needs help from desperately. I loved their meet-cue it's too awesome and sad, really really sad. Cearnach is an awesome character, strong but not too arrogant; he's a hot werewolf the second in command to his brother and he is on his way to the wedding of his best friend even though he knows it's just going to cause trouble between their warring clans, on the way there he is run off the road by a crazy hot woman dressed in red and so begins the story of Cearnach & Elaine.

Elaine is an Alpha werewolf without a pack, who has managed to pull her life together despite the tragedy she has faced and even though it's been tough she still was willing to meet an Alpha and be with him.  I will note that she had a few hangups but they weren't debilitating, she still had some good sense in there and used it. She was a strong character who was down for the adventure of being in Scotland and went along with whatever happened as long as it also served her purpose, she wasn't a pushover and she wasn't a carzy ball buster either, she wore her Alpha mantel and was comfortable with backing off when she didn't know what was needed. Which totatlly endeared her to me, she was a modern, strong woman and I loved it.

To say I love this story doesn't even begin to do it justice, the characters are well written, fun witty, the story flows well, the questions are answered the old characters pop in but don't take over the book, the history is shared and makes the book even more intriguing, it really wasn't predictable or lame. I was hooked from the beginning and couldn't put it down until I finished which was fun because I was reading while standing on line at BEA in NYC, yeah even on the trains I read, I just wanted to know what happened.

I'm dying to know more about the other clan, why they are the way they are, and what really started the warring between the clans. I'm reading Howl For a Highlander right now (yeah I realized after that I was reading the books in the wrong order, but hey more hot highlanders for me).  and I can't get enough of these werewolves.  I loved how she wove the stories together, giving more information about each brother in each book & let us see more of their partners in each book.  It's an amazing story, a good read that's perfect for the summer vacation.  I mean really Highlander's and kilts are always good anytime of year.

Enjoy my loves
