Genre: Paranormal/Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance
Sensuality: HOT

RT Rating

Werewolves plus Highland warriors plus Spear always add up to fun, light romance. Her characters aren’t deep or tortured, and the HEA is guaranteed from page one. Sure, it may have a few teeny-tiny logic holes, but it’s just the thing to treat the winter blues.

Duncan MacNeil, Highland warrior and guardian for his pack,
is determined to get back the fortune stolen from his clan. The thief has been tracked to Grand Cayman Island, so Duncan has set off in pursuit. The clock is ticking, and he can’t afford to abandon the trail to go chasing after the lovely woman he meets at the airport. Shelley Campbell is an American botanist, researching rare plants in the nature reserve on the island, and she is also a descendant of wolves forced to leave Scotland. But this Highland wolf is proving to be quite a distraction. (SOURCEBOOKS, Feb., 352 pp., $7.99)

LITERAL ADDICTION's Review of A Howl for a Highlander

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson:
*eARC received from NetGalley

Terry Spear has a very good thing going with her HEART OF THE WOLF series and my favorites so far have had to do with those sexy highland wolves...

This one had a cool concept. I liked the set up, I loved the way that she overlapped the stories to create cohesion between the characters, and there were just enough surprises.

Shelley is a professor of botany and on a research trip to the Cayman Islands. She locks eyes with a sexy Scottish wolf in the airport and there's instant chemistry.

Duncan is younger brother to the Laird of MacNeil castle. He's in Grand Cayman trying to track down a con artist wolf that has utterly and completely ripped of his pack and family, not to mention countless others. Once he spies the sexy redhead in the airport he has trouble thinking of much else.

Fate and circumstances push the two together and they end up as roomates and partners in trying to take down the sleezy, slimy con man.

While neither planed for it, they can't escape their attraction and one thing leads to another; their mission, families, and others' expectations be damned.

A Howl for the Highlander was another super sexy 4 Skull highland wolf read from Terry Spear and I enjoyed it a lot

There was something about it that wouldn't allow me to give it a higher rating though. I think it was the all-of-a-sudden abruptness to the culmination of Shelley and Duncan's relationship. It was going along great, plenty of sexual tension, lots of action, the story led well to their relationship progressing, etc, and then all of a sudden they were just 'together'. It was still good, but it reminded a lot me of how I feel when I read PNR Novellas; like they're just not long enough to hold the full story and feel like they're rushed. This wasn't on that level, but it was the same type of feeling. I might have been able to give this 5 skulls if it were a bit longer and drawn out just a tad more...
