Terry Spear has been one of my favorite paranormal romance writers for a while but for some reason her latest books just haven't worked for me. I felt much the same about this one. I liked the concept but I found myself wandering while reading and it took me forever to get through.
For some reason, I was never able to make a connection with either Shelley or Duncan. I think that's part of the reason I had trouble getting through this book. Shelley was an okay heroine. I liked her. She was smart and interesting but I just couldn't seem to make a connection with her. I did like Duncan quite a bit. He was such a strong character and I always love my Highlanders...and my shapeshifters.
I have been reading this series on an off from the beginning. I don't know why but the latest ones I've read haven't really worked for me. They come with so many aspects that I love, like Highlanders and shapeshifters, but somehow fall a bit short. I did like the progression of the romance. It wasn't insta-love but paced very well and the writing, as always with Terry Spear, was excellent. I think my disconnect with this series lately stems from my jumping around with this series. I may have to go back and reread.
