Heart of the Highland Wolf by Terry Spear


Summary: Ian McNeill, laird of Argent Castle finds his capital squandered through unwise investments and the wolf clan's home that has been theirs for centuries is in danger of being forfeit for nonpayment of taxes. When a movie producer contacts him with the notion of using his castle to produce a movie, Ian abhores the idea, but it's his only salvation. Even worse, his people become extras in this epic Highland movie. But when one American werewolf romance author, Julia Wildthorn, slips into the castle under the guise of being with the movie company, except she is trying to jumpstart her muse with writing a book set in old-world Scotland--specifically about his castle and his people as the characters in her newest book venture--she and Ian tangle.


Review: I was a little nervous starting this book because none of these characters are familiar. At least with past books there is at least 1 or 2 characters that you have previously read about and gotten a bit used to. I've heard Julia's name mentioned some, but I didn't know how she was as a character. When am I going to learn to trust in my authors? Julia was fun to read even though I don't think she is an alpha. Ian was incredibly dreamy. I couldn't get the Scottish accent right in my head because I hardly ever hear it. He isn't nearly as awesome as Dev, but he was still great. Flynn might have been my favorite character. I think he redeems from his past in this book. The story was great. I knew Julia was an author so I couldn't figure out why she would be trying to steal something, but then you get to the meat of this story. As usual, Terry packs the last couple of chapters full of awesomeness. This is a solid addition to Terry's werewolf series. Really guys. If you haven't tried this series yet I completely recommend it.

Sounds like a good series. I don't think I've heard of them until I stopped by here. :) Thank you! And glad to see you enjoyed this one even though you didn't have a familiar character to fall back on. That is a great thing. :)
