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.
I read this book almost two months ago and waited until almost the publication date to review it. Now I remember why? I couldn’t get past the “are you kidding me?” moments in the book.
Anisa parachutes into the mountains of the Scottish Highlands and just happens to land on a bear . . . a shape-shifting bear . . . who just happens to be her mate.
Oddly enough, I can accept that. Shape-shifting bears – check. After all, I read about (and love) shape-shifter books all the time. He’s her mate – check. Of course, why else would we have the book?
What I could not get past is the fact they already knew each other from just a few years before . . . and neither one recognized the other! They met in Paris, as adults, and although they didn’t date, they did have several conversations . . . and neither one RECOGNIZED the other!
This is the third book in the series and if you’ve read the others, go ahead and read this one. It had its fun moments. I just couldn’t get past the “really?” parts enough to enjoy it.
This book was sent to me by NetGalley in return for an honest review.
