I can’t actually believe just how much FUN this title was to read: combining kilted Scotsmen and shifters in the Highlands of Scotland, wrapping it all around a tale of destined romance and adding an all-bark-no-bite bluster to the hero and Vonnie Davis has brought a lovely story.
Paisley and her Gran, Effie are heading to Scotland for a relative’s funeral. What neither know is that this is a destined journey for Paisley: her ability to communicate with animals make her a perfect veterinary assistant, but have her socially withdrawn and a bit insecure. In fact, her fiancé when she heads off is overbearing and overwhelming, and the break from that train wreck of a relationship is exactly what Paisley needs.
Arriving in Scotland, Davis manages to set the scene to give readers a real feel of the sights and country, and when Paisley first encounters Creighton, by fainting dead away, this starts the series of twists and turns that will intrigue and entertain. For Creighton is most worried about his clan: Paisley’s inheritance of the old castle and lands will impact his people as they are used to the freedom to wander and shift at will in the remote area.
Effie is clever and funny, with a touch of the mystical behind her, all buried in a caring, sweet package that simply wants to see Paisley happy. Paisley has moments where everything becomes too much, and it almost appears as if it will break her, but she soon finds her own strength and confidence, and learns to become more confident because of her gift, not in spite of it. And Creighton, how could you not adore Creighton? Laird of his clan, and a bear-shifter, he has some very blustery moments that are based in his frustration and insecurities where his feelings for Paisley are concerned. Protective, loyal and oh so sexy, his determination to get and win her, and possibly reverse the centuries-old curse on his clan all combine together to make him a formidable hero.
A fun and unique read with bear (not wolf) shifters, kilted heroes, magic and fantasy all in the Highlands of Scotland. Throw in the happy ending and it is a not to be missed story!

Two wandering souls discover that true love needs no words in this explosive, fantastical novel from Vonnie Davis.
Somehow able to telepathically communicate with animals, Paisley Munro has found meaning in her so-called gifts by working as a veterinary assistant. But while traveling to Scotland for a relative’s funeral, Paisley fears that she really has lost her mind. Out in the highlands, she hears distinctly human thoughts coming from a wild bear. Terrified and desperate, she returns to the lodge and collapses in the powerful arms of its owner, a mysterious man with whom she shares a simmering attraction.
Creighton Matheson and his fellow shape-shifters have been roaming this land freely for centuries. Now Paisley may inherit his home, putting his kind in grave danger. His mistrust only deepens when he realizes she can read his mind. Yet he cannot deny that this tantalizing woman makes him burn with desire—and hunger for the prospect of a tender love. Now Creighton must decide which would hurt more: revealing the truth or losing Paisley forever.
