Summary from publisher:
It's a matter of pride...My Review:
Modern day werewolf laird Ian MacNeill reluctantly allows a film production company to use his castle, but he knows his secretive clan has a big problem when a beautiful red werewolf female who insists she's working on the film keeps showing up in the wrong places... and a matter of pleasure...
Julia Wildthorn is not who she says she is-she's sneaking into Argent Castle to steal an ancient relic for her grandfather and to do research for her next werewolf romance novel. When she catches a glimpse of Ian, she realizes he's the perfect hero...
I love Highander romances and I love shapeshifter romances. So this looked to be a perfect combination of all the things that I love. I also have loved the previous books in this series. I was really excited about this one.
Julia was admittedly not my favorite heroine that I have come across recently. I couldn’t seem to connect with her at all. It’s not that I didn’t like her but she was just a mite flat. I think I would have been more interested if Julia’s friend Maria had been the heroine. Ian was the typical alpha male…which is good. He was protective and strong. I definitely liked him much better than I liked Julia. I did not think that the chemistry between Ian and Julia was as intense as I would have liked it. I mean there was chemistry but it wasn’t spectacular.
I liked this book quite a bit while I was reading it. But, and this happens very rarely, I lost my interest almost immediately after I finished. I know it seems normal that you lose interest once you finish reading but with me, I usually give another pass through the book but I simply did not feel the urge to do that with this one. I also did not like the subplot of the story with the box and the promise. It did serve it’s purpose but I thought I was too much of a focus. I have loved the previous books in this series but this one, while I liked it, was not my favorite. I will still continue with the rest of the series and the previous books make up some of my favorite shapeshifter romances ever.
