A Highland Werewolf Wedding

A Highland Werewolf Wedding - Terry Spear Initial Thoughts: Loved this, love Terry Spear, love the sexy Highlander werewolves in kilts. Add this to your summer reading lists - no problem to read it as a standalone book, although you will want to read all the rest of Ms. Spear's books once you've read this one. The Review:I know that I’m in for a treat whenever I pick up one of Terry Spear’s books. Think about it: highlanders, sexy werewolves in kilts, castles, pirate treasure, even a ghost – how can you go wrong? A Highland Werewolf Wedding can be read as a standalone book, but it is book 11 in the authors Heart of the Wolf series. It is a testament to the author’s writing skill that a reader can skip around the series, reading it completely out of order, and still enjoy each book. I never felt like I missed anything by skipping around this series and I still plan to read the entire series. It would make a great summer “read by the pool” read. I know that some people don’t like the “love at first sight” trope, but it just seems to work with werewolves. Blame it on the wolf, blame it on the mating instinct – I can easily buy the raw, animal emotion that screams out “Mine!” and “Mate!” when werewolves are involved. I also love the fact that the wolves inside the humans get intrigued first, then the human side follows. I think that this type of attraction works, especially when an accidental meeting sparks that mating instinct. And whoa, these two are hot together! I loved the main characters. Cearnach is such an alpha male: strong, protective, confident, smart – and he looks amazing in a kilt. He exudes masculinity and has a patient and caring side. Elaine is beautiful and strong willed. She too is an alpha wolf and I loved how she “protects” Cearnach and stands up to his mother. She is a perfect match for Cearnach. I think I enjoyed this couple the most when they roamed the countryside as wolves. The author captures their animal side so well down to every detail. The reader is treated to the sights, sounds, and smells from a wolf’s point of view. Fascinating. The supporting cast of characters was interesting as well. I loved the camaraderie of the MacNeill clan of wolves, how they were able to protect each other and then joke and play together. There’s even a ghost living in the castle! Flynn was quite the mischievous ghost. Yup, you can’t have an old highland castle without a ghost. Ms. Spear writes very entertaining werewolf stories. I can always count on her books for some sexy werewolf times. I’ve now added the remaining books in the series to my summer reading list. I can’t wait to catch up on this series. Thank you to NetGalley and Sourcebooks for a review copy of this book. Review posted on Badass Book Reviews.
