Image of Heart of the Highland Wolf

Here’s a very readable romance, set in a castle in Scotland no less. While it is a werewolf tale, the emphasis is all romance, with the lupus garou qualities of the characters being a sort of given. The story has no deep layers but instead is a fun porch-swing afternoon escape.

Julia MacPherson, aka Julia Wildthorn, writer of Highland werewolf romances, is headed for a real Scot castle occupied by a real hunky Scottish laird, who just happens to be a wolf. She’s trying to beat her writer’s block and find a box hidden somewhere in the castle, a charge from her grandfather, as it turns out her family once lived in this very castle. Her arrival is complicated by a car crash that may not be accidental, causing her to enter the castle in the laird’s arms. This makes it difficult to snoop around, especially since he can smell that she is also a wolf. Ian MacNeil, castle laird and pack alpha, did not plan on letting a snooping stranger into his arms and his bed. He is suspicious of Julia’s motives, but strongly attracted to the little red wolf. Should he throw her out or kiss her senseless? (SOURCEBOOKS, Jun., 416 pp., $7.99)
