AH’s Review – 4 Skulls – B+
It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Terry Spear and her paranormal romance series. Her werewolf books are a lot of fun to read. Can you think of a series that has both SEALs and Highlanders? Well, the Heart of the Wolf series does. So when I saw Hero of a Highland Wolf available for review, I jumped at the chance to read and share my love of this series. I mean, come on, Scottish Highland Castles, nicely oiled brawny werewolves in kilts, sword fights – who could ask for more?
As in the previous books, Hero of a Highland Wolf focuses on a main couple: Grant MacQuarrie and Colleen Playfair. Grant’s pack are the caretakers of Farriage Castle which Colleen has just inherited. Grant is afraid that Colleen will turn his pack out so he hatches a plan: Scare Colleen off by staging a sword fight and medieval feast so that she will refuse to stay at the castle. The joke’s on Grant as Colleen is best friends with Julia who has let Colleen know about the plans. She takes out her video camera and films the men’s sword play. Men – 0, Women – 1.
This book was a lot of fun to read, especially once Grant acknowledges that he is attracted to Colleen. The romance builds slowly and is punctuated by misunderstandings and danger. When they finally get together, the two are smoking hot!
The supporting cast was wonderful. I loved the camaraderie of the members of the pack, especially when they helped push Grant towards mating Colleen (they even signed a petition). The ladies’ pirate party was a hoot, especially when the men crashed the party.
What’s nice about these books is that you really do not need to read each book in the series consecutively. Each book stands on its own, however for optimal reading pleasure, you’ll want to read them all. If you have not yet had a chance to read this series, go ahead and start with this book. It will give you a nice taste of the author’s writing and her wonderful sense of humor.
Oh, what do Highland wolves wear under their kilts? You guessed it!
