Two werewolves, a Scottish castle and the power of fate.
Highly ranked in her werewolf pack in spite of being female, American Mattie Sloane travels to Scotland with her Alpha, never suspecting the trip will turn her life upside down.
A rogue by nature, werewolf Colin MacPherson has to shape up fast when he finds his mate in Mattie.
Just one problem—they both love their countries and don’t want to move. How can they be mates an ocean apart?
Well this was a quick read, but I liked that it was short after the long books I have been reading lately. I really needed a change and as I liked ‘A Minor Shift’ by Tabitha I thought I would check out the start to this series aswell.
Mattie has come over from America with her Alpha to be part of peace talks between the ‘Others’ out there. She has is sixth in her pack and the highest ranking member that came over, after her Alpha that is, so she is in charge of the others but mostly she has to keep an eye out for her Alpha’s safety. While strolling through the castle, after getting a bit lost, she comes across the most alluring scent known to shifters, her mates. She follows the scent right up to a shut door and when the door opens and she is faced with a wet, wolf shifter, hunk of a man in nothing but a towel she is not disappointed.
Colin has always been a bit of a player, sewing his wild oats for some time now. So when he catches the scent of his mate his first point of call is to send the maid, whose bust he had is head in, on her merry way. He first thinks to head off his mate, but realising he smells of another does the only thing he can think of, run in the opposite direction to get into a shower. He thinks that he is probably the only wolf in history to run away from his mate and even though he is glad he has found her he can’t help but wonder about what he will be giving up to have her. That is until he opens the door and comes to face with Mattie.
With both being shifters they know that when you smell your mate they are the one for you so when you come face to face with them you do the only natural thing, jump them so you can indulge in some hot shifter passion. After the first, of what you can tell will be many rounds of red hot sex is out of their systems they are faced with a bit of a dilemma. With an ocean between them and neither wanting to move, where are they going to live?
As shifter romance’s go this one had a good start but I felt that it could have been a bit longer so you could see the characters develop a little bit more. I feel that this was more like a preface to the series than the start of it as not a lot happens. Having said that I like that it was a light start to the series as I think it will get more interesting the further the story as a whole develops. If you like paranormal books then this author is definitely one to keep your eye on.
3 out of 5 stars
