ARC review of A Highlander's Obsession - Release date: August 19th

A Highlander's Obsession (A Highlander's Beloved, #1)A Highlander's Obsession by Vonnie Davis
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Oookay...took me a while to finish this book. Highlander? sign me up! romance? hells yeah! hot sex? whoohoo!
the h is a female Dr. Doolittle and the H is a bear/scot shapeshifter?

I don't know where to begin with this book. There's a lot going on. The death of an uncle, then a will is read, and Paisley, our heroine/animal whisperer arrives in Scotland and hears our hero's thoughts cause his bear is awake or something...

bear with me now -- no pun intended...
but then she thinks she can hear people too, yet doesn't bring it up later, even after talking to our hot Scottish hero, then she sees a giant bear by her window and hear his thoughts, but doesn't put two-and-two together, then freaks out when she finds out that he's a shifter...never mind she has herself SUPERNATURAL powers of communicating telepathically with animals, in the ENGLISH language nonetheless! She's freaked out and can't believe he's half bear...

Anywho, she freaks, they have sex - hot sex, then he erases her memory and anyway I'm rambling. There's a lot going on. Our Hero is the Laird of his Clan, and he has two brothers. Together with his mom they run an Inn, where Paisley is staying with her grandmother.

There's tons: let's see, there scheming, drug epidemic within the Clan, animal sacrifices, shape-shifters, witches, ghosts, a kidnapping, a murder...

I know, right?? that was pretty much me too. But there's a reason I kept reading. Aye, there is lassies...

YUP. Hot Scottish man. Loved him!
The H and h had chemistry. I cared for them, despite all the muddle twists and turns, I got that pang, you know, right inside my chest when Creighton (aye, Creighton) hurt Paisley's feelings, when they fought...when they made up...especially then.

oh yeah.
I'm not a big fan of shape-shifting books, but this author held my interest, and made me care about the main characters, to the point that I wanted to finish the book, just so I could see them end up together.
What is a perfect Scottish brood? nope. But still, Aye. It was one hell of an Alpha Male. Great work creating characters that as I reader, I cared about ;)
