Laird Wolf (Takhini Shifters #2) by Vivian Arend
Overview by Amazon:
He’s a wolf in a kilt. That pretty much says it all…
Pulling off a rescue mission at a remote castle in Scotland should be an easy task for lone wolf Damon Black. He’ll flash some muscle, show a little Alpha power, and do whatever it takes to ease Addie MacShay’s fears. But the woman who throws herself into his arms and cries boyfriend is more intriguing than anticipated. The sexy she-wolf’s got more curves, more tantalizing scent, more of everything he desires.
Addie’s job cataloguing an estate at the Sterling-Wylde Manor is complicated by the ongoing discovery of new wills and the two creepy heirs who won’t leave her alone. But her fake boyfriend turns out to be a far greater threat—not only is he fun and flirtatious, he looks delicious in a kilt. She craves his touch, but with her empathic skills on overdrive, touch is the last thing she needs.
Damon’s fighting his unruly inner beast. Addie’s fighting their incredible sexual pull. They’re both going to have to lower their guard to make this more than a Highland fling.
I have just started to get into the shifter romance genre. This book looked like a good one, so I requested it!
The book starts out with hot, wolfie Damon riding in the Scottish Highlands. He arrives at the castle dripping wet and getting embraced by the beautiful Addie. They have quite a hot kiss and so begins the fun and games.
Since Damon’s luggage was lost, he gets some clothes from the Sterling-Wylde cat shifter brothers. As a joke, they provide him with kilts, but the joke is on them when Damon steps out looking like a Scottish Laird.
Addie is there to document the historical items in the castle which is part of a contested will settlement. Her friend Lillie has sent Damon there to protect her. I haven’t read other books in the series, so there was some back story that I didn’t quite get. Damon takes his job seriously and he works to spend time with the luscious Addie. He finds her beyond attractive and wants to get to know both her and her inner wolf.
This book would have been just as interesting without the shifter elements, but it added another dimension to the story. Damon is an alpha, but also a lone wolf. He is having some troubles with his wolf while he is in the highlands and therefore we don’t get to experience much of Damon as the four legged character. Addie is an Omega wolf. This tends to be the empathetic and spirit of a pack. She experiences others emotions and therefore touch is very hard for her. It is so hard when Damon looks like a god and all she wants to do is give in to the sexual energy buzzing between the two.
This was a fun novel. I think the castle was almost like another character in this book. I liked learning about the history and Addie’s job. There is a lot to enjoy in this book and if you are a big fan of shifters and Scotland, then this book is your cup of tea!
