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'll both have to lower their guard to make this more than a Highland fling.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
What a fun little book! It had a kind of gentle humor going for it that was greatly appreciated. Nothing over the top here. Laird Wolf is the second book in the Takhini Shifters series but it can be read as a standalone, which worked, but I did feel like I was missing just tiny little bits and pieces that would have added additional layers to an already cute story. Of course, I have to add the first book to my TBR list because I’m curious now.
Damon was sweet and funny but also damaged. The fact that he is forced to run around in a kilt for the entire book added a huge amount of H.O.T. hot to all that cuteness! Addie was a quirky mess. She was super smart with her photographic memory, but still not the most aware h out there since she was lost in her own head so much. She was definitely funny though and they worked well as a couple.
My one complaint – I wanted to see some ass-kicking of the weird and skeevy Sterling-Wylde brothers. I think their funny but fitting demise would have made for a much better story. They were creepy and dark and I always think creepy and dark characters should have a creepy, dark, and fitting end.
Now I just have to figure out where I’m going to find the time to read Copper King. This is a good problem to have.
