Back Cover Blurb:

A Scottish hunter and a French secret agent find themselves on a collision course with danger—and irresistible desire—in Vonnie Davis’s new bear-shifting Highlander novel, perfect for fans of Jennifer Ashley and Shelly Laurenston.

In the pine-dense mountains of the Scottish Highlands, shape-shifter Ronan Matheson is running free when a desperate woman parachutes out of the sky, directly onto his furry, powerful chest. Instead of clawing her to death, Ronan’s inner bear longs to keep her safe. Once he’s back in human form, Ronan is amused by the mysterious beauty’s fearless attitude—and tempted by her expertly toned physique. But what could she possibly be doing in this isolated stretch of the Highlands?

French intelligence agent Anisa Brosseau never imagined she’d be on the CIA’s bad side—until she’s framed for treason and forced to flee in a stolen drone. Hiding out in a remote cabin, Anisa just needs some time to clear her name. What she doesn’t need is a brooding, muscle-bound Scot in a skimpy kilt to drive her crazy with lust. But when Anisa’s enemies come knocking on his door, Ronan calls on a secret weapon to protect his turf and the bonny lass he’s come to love.

My Review:

What a brilliant novel! Davis seamlessly combines highland romance with the wonders of being a shifter. Toss in a load of suspense and a dash of spice and you’ll barely be able to put it down. The plot starts out on a high note that carries throughout the entire novel as Davis develops her larger than life world. The intimate and intricate descriptions allowed me to enter the novel in a real way. The narrative was solid, always furthering the plot yet also allowing me to have fun with the novel.

Not only were the characters well developed, but the dialogue was solid & realistic. The banter between the characters was fantastic, adding to the story and creating an interpersonal dynamic that you won’t forget.

Davis has created a fun, funny highland romance that I thoroughly enjoyed. I love how she easily crossed genres, creating an intricate whole that kept me on my toes while also keeping the laughter rolling.
