Overview

In the vein of Jennifer Ashley’s Shifters Unbound series and Shelly Laurenston’s Pride Stories, Vonnie Davis introduces two wandering souls who discover that true love needs no words in this explosive, fantastical novel.
 
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.

American Paisley Munro accompanies her wild Gram to Scotland for a family funeral. Gram has inherited a fabulous estate adjacent to that of the Laird of the Clan Matheson, a rather odd clan with some mysterious abilities Paisley can't quite figure out. However, she herself has a strange ability—she can hear animals speak. Paisley is shocked when she can hear the thoughts of Laird Creighton Matheson, as she has never heard a human's thoughts before. But is he truly human? VERDICT Davis has written a fun albeit slightly predictable story of shape-shifters, land conservation, naughty grannies, and erotic scene after erotic scene. There's plenty of humor and angst to balance it out. [LJ Xpress Reviews, 8/22/14.]—B. Allison Gray, Goleta Lib., CA

The entire book our hero lauded our heroines strength and zest for life. Yet, she had one major crying episode per chapter and tears streaming down her face every other page! First it was annoying, then laughable, and then just nauseating.

I loved the characters in this book especially Gram. My only complaint is that it was too short and the stories were not developed enough. We didn't get a chance to get to know Malcolm so how could we understand and dislike his behavior. Whar about Alex. Why did he come to Scotland? Too many questions. But still I loved it.

No, not as good as Shelly L, but not terrible either. Author seemed to be looking for excuses to create drama btw the lead characters, as a way to add tension to the story, I assume. The persistant trivial-details-provokes-serious- emotional-upset got annoying after awhile. Story plot was good & overall enjoyed the book, the world & the little bit of mystery as the hero works to overcome the bad guy. Author needs to work on how to build tension btw the main characters, though.

The writing is terrible! The heroine is so immature. It reads like a 16 year old girl writing her fantasies in her diary. So bad I could not finish no matter how hard I tried to get past all crap. Scenes are repeated over and over and usually has the main characters fornicating, about to forni cate or thinking about it and that was so poorly written I could barely read it and had to skip most of it, lame, lame, lame!!!!

I did enjoy this book. I had everything you could as for in a paranormal romance including shape-shifting bears, a few friendly ghosts, drug dealers, and a lot of that wonderful Scottish brogue. The introductions of Laird Creighton Masterson, and his brothers Ronan and Bryce. Paisley Munro arriving from the US with her Grandmother, Effie were well written and made you want to immediately get to know them. This book delivered more than I expected and was thoroughly enjoyable. I could have done without the graphic words dispersed throughout the book. That isn’t my thing, but all in all, it was a good book, excellently written

The absolute best thing about this story is the way the author handles all things Scottish. After that, the story is sound, the characters charming, and the paranormal helped along the plot. My only complaint was that the heroine protested once too many times. This is an author to keep an eye on.

4.5 - Beloved Stars! I absolutely loved this book. I didn't have massive expectations going in, I was just looking to be entertained for a few hours. I love a man in a kilt and a gravelly Scottish burr, hits me right in the knicker elastic, and it was pinging all over the place with this Highland treat. Add into the mix Shape-shifting bears, a few friendly ghosts, a lot of giggling and a little sniffle, and I fell in love with Laird Creighton Masterson, and his brothers Ronan and Bryce. Paisley Munro arriving from the US with her Grandmother, Effie is just the woman to tame the ornery, demanding and swooningly sweet Laird. "I was scared of you before, but I'm not now." A Highlander's Obsession delivered a whole lot more than I was expecting, and although the first book in the Highlanders Beloved series it offered a lot of openings and introductions whilst still keeping Creigh and Paisley at its focal point. I love Scotland, although the Scotland in this book is the Scotland I wish I had visited previously, I'd kinda like my own kilt wearing Laird to curl up with on cold nights the next time I travel to the Highlands! "We'll make a Scot of ye yet."

What a fun read! The sparks fly off Paisley Munroe and Creighton Matheson right from the get go and the cast of supporting characters are more than strong enough to carry their weight! Paisley's Gram is a big-hearted free spirit with a level of sass that's keep you laughing. Paisley and Creighton's struggle to bridge the gaps between their cultures and themselves keeps you turning pages. Enjoy! I know I did.

OMG...I read this book into the night, I am on hold for the next book...Creighton is the biggest Dream Come True for any girl. When you can talk with the animals and have a Gram that helps with a smart mouth and little majic and then get a Bear Shape shifter who adores you for all of you good and bad (and in my case the flashes of temper from lack of self confidence ) then your world is complete. The way Ms. Davis writes the Scottish brogue I heard it in my head as the players spoke. Love this book, can't wait for the next.

Unlike certain other reviewers I won't give away the whole story in a so called review. This is one of the better romances I've read lately. Great characters and LOL humor. I hope to find morebooks by this author and hoping this book is a series. I haven't checked yet. Off to look
