The legend of the vampire comes alive.

Some call Cairstine one of the dark fae. She holds the ability to morph and can shift into any creature she desires, whether shrinking to the size of a bat, extending to the width of a dragon, or anything in between. She hasn't walked in daylight since her childhood years, has taken her nourishment by feeding from her immortal sisters, but as one of the ancient fae, it's now time for her to come up against her greatest adversary. Her fated mate.

Liam is his clan's doctor, a warrior shifter of immense strength, and when Cairstine arrives from the year 1211 into his twenty-first century time, he's riveted by her. She holds one of the rarest of their people's fae abilities and her immortal soul needs healing. Her desire to embrace the dark is drawing her deeper and deeper into despair and now he is left with no choice. He needs to bring his mate's soul back into the light, or else she'll destroy them both.

Historical paranormal read I really loved how Ms. Wadsworth weave her story. How she can combine a lot of elements into one, and leave the readers amazed and satisfied. Mystery, romance, historical, paranormal, adventure as well as action-packed plot combined. She put in a very clever approach with this plot, and I have to commend her for it. This series has a lot of books within and this I think is the latest of it, and as usual, its a standalone. The flow is still seamless through it all.

Cairstine is an immortal dark fae. She's has an unusual ability. She can morph into any creature. I loved her majestic dragon. He's formidable as long as Cairstine can control him. The danger with her blood lust is she can hurt/kill innocents or those she loves. I felt her despair. Liam, a bear shifter, is her fated mate. He's the clan's doctor as well as a powerful warrior. He loves her and wants to protect her but she's a stubborn lass. I wanted her to accept the help that was offered. The biggest danger to Cairstine and Clan Matheson is their devious enemy Colin MacKenzie. I didn't want him to gain the power he desires. This story is a wild emotional ride. Cairstine and Liam are larger than life. Their situation seems hopeless. I wanted them to overcome the odds and find happiness. I just wasn't sure it was possible. It was nice to see characters from previous books in this series. Joanne Wadsworth has written an emotional story that I couldn't put down. I loved the new spin on vampires.

This has fast become my very favorite time travel romance series, the books are always so full of intrigue, romance, magic, shifting, time travel, etc. This one is Liam and Cairstine's story. Liam is the present day clan doctor and he's also a bear shifter. Cairstine is from the past and she's a fae who can shift into whatever creature she wants and she's also an immortal who only drinks blood from her immortal sisters. Cairstine and Liam are fated mates and he wants to marry her but she keeps refusing because she's feeling herself going into the dark fae side and worries that she will hurt him, her family and friends. Liam vows he will help her fight it!! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I love the Matheson series of books. From page one, I was hooked. Ms Wadsworth has a way with words, they sweep you right into her book. It doesn't matter if its into the past or the present, I truly feel connected to her characters and their setting. Liam's character has graced a few of the other books and his character always captured my heart. He's a handsome, bear-shifting doctor who is always the first to help his clan. His connection to a certain fae is powerful and protective. As their story unfolds, there are many plot twists and I found myself cheering these two on. Thank you for a wonderful book, I'm looking forward to Levi's story!

A magical, sexy, fun, action packed and emotionally thrilling journey from beginning to end. An engaging tail of two forces of nature so drawn to each other they find each other even in the pitch black darkness. Loved it!

Liam, a bear shifter, is the clan’s physician in the 21st Century. Cairstine is a shapeshifter-Fae from the past who can shift into anything regardless of how big or small it is. She lives off of the blood of her immortal sisters to keep humans safe and does not walk in the sunlight. Liam and Cairstine are fated mates who are powerfully drawn to each other. Cairstine’s problem is that she is afraid that she might be a danger to her friends. There is nothing she wouldn’t do to protect her friends. But something is not quite right with her soul. Liam is hoping to marry her, but she feels she can’t risk it as she is pulled deeper and deeper into the dark side of despair. Even when her relationship grows with Liam and he becomes more protective of her, she tries to push off his help in dealing with an enemy who threatens her. But Liam is determined to be there for his mate. This is such a clever approach to the love story where the two main characters come from two different times in history to complete their love story. The book combines Fae, shifter, highlander, and time travel into a well done story line with likable characters. Do they have a possible future together? Can he save her from her enemy? Can he resolve her despair? Don’t miss this awesome book!

Highlander's Courage is impossible to put into a single category. Joanne Wadsworth manages to blend time travel, shifters, fae and Highland adventure all into one fantastic book. Ms. Wadsworth has delivered another well-written book loaded with fun and fantastic characters and a visit with loved characters from previous books. Cairstine is fae with the ability to shift into any creature she wants. She also can't be in the sunlight and her meals are of the liquid variety, if you know what I mean. Liam is a present-day doctor to the clan. Liam and Cairstine's story is packed with drama, humor, action, spice and suspense. I enjoyed every page of Highlander's Courage and look forward to reading more from Joanne Wadsworth soon. Highlander's Courage is book 12 of The Matheson Brothers Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book that I received from Booksprout. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Great story. I’ve been following the Matheson clan and this is a good addition to the series It does work as a stand-alone with interesting twists to time traveling. I liked the story line and the characters in this one. She comes forward in time. She’s fae and he’s a shifter and they are fated, but it’s never that easy. They each need the other. (I voluntarily reviewed an ARC).
