Mmmm.....dirty, sweaty, well built men in kilts....that's what I think of when I think of Jessi Gage's Highlander series. I got to read her fabulous first book Wishing for a Highlander (click here for review) and just fell in love with her writing style. Luckily, she allowed me a sneak peak at her second book in the Highlander series called The Wolf and the Highlander. So was it more sweaty men in kilts that make your toes tingle? Actually....nope! Big, well hung wolf men from another realm who appreciate women for all the right reasons--that's what awaited me in this exciting sequel! Now before you start thinking "Oh, it's a werewolf book" let me just stop you right there. It is and it isn't. I found that the male characters were not your traditional werewolf stereo type. There was no "light of the full moon" craziness. They kinda just were always...wolfy. And apparently very hairy. Like Tom Selleck hairy in his bare chested Magnum P.I. days. They're the kind of hairy that makes your motor rev and your toes tingle! Here's a quick plot synopsis: Anya (the bad girl from Book 1) is now crippled. Both of her legs were broken in a dramatic fall and everyone in her village assumed she was dead. However, she recovered with the help of a friend and decided it was important to return home, admit her wrong doings, and hopefully, not be put to death in the process. It's a gamble, but she wants to redeem herself. Of course, redemption does not come easily. Before she can ever ask for forgiveness, a magical box (the same one that caused all the trouble in Wishing for a Highlander) whisks her away into another realm. And let me tell you what...this realm is sorely lacking women. Especially breeding women. The last chick born in that realm is pretty old so when a woman like Anya enters the picture, she causes a stir. In this case, it's the wrong kind of stir, and Anya is almost taken by some really nasty wolf guys who do not have any sort of honorable intentions. Lucky for her, she is rescued by Riggs--and apparently he is walking sex on a stick! Together they escape from the bad guys and head towards the city where King Magnus is waiting for them. A long time ago, the king had a dream about a girl who would come and save his kingdom. She would have distinct marks on her and carry a special stone. Guess what? Anya fits the description and she happens to have a special stone that allows her to understand the language of the place she is currently in. Riggs is pretty sure the King will want to claim Anya as the mystery girl in the picture. But there is a catch...Riggs wants to claim her, too--even though he knows it's wrong. Mistaken identity, revenge, sexual heat, and some supernatural shenanigans really set this story rolling along. I read it in one sitting and can't wait for Jessi Gage to write the third one! The characters were well developed and very human. I didn't like Anya in the first book and wasn't sure how the author would be able to redeem her. But she did! By the end of the book, I was rooting for Anya to have a happy ending. Riggs is a great hero. Strong, confident, but always trying to do the right thing, Riggs tugs at your heart strings and gets your blood flowing in all the right places. I had my doubts about King Magnus, but once again, I was surprised at how his character turned out. I really hope he will be the main character in the next book. I need to know what happens to him and his newly found love interest. Let's talk sex....yep. There is some. It's good stuff, too. There was lots of build up to the big moment, but definitely worth the wait! Overall, this is a fast paced, fun read!

This book was amazing. Surprisingly so much better than the first one in the series. I found the world of Chroina so interesting. I hope the author writes more stories in this realm.

I did not think I would like this story, because I hated Anya at first. But, I grew to tolerate her, then eventually cared for her. Such a sweet love story in the midst of turmoil and tragedy. Very good!

I loved it but would like to read more about this world! I was prepared to hate Anya but she certainly changed after her fall. Very enjoyable tale!

After reading Wishing for a Highlander , I just had to buy this book to see what happened to the Anya.  I kind of read the book covering one eye and biting my lip not knowing how the author could pull off a hairy wolf man.  Boy was I surprised. I couldn't put this book down either.  I now have Jessi Gage in my Favorites bookshelf on my NOOK.  Love the stories and how she writes.  I'm hoping that she will write a book about the King and Seona??  :)

This book took a little different path than book #1 and that's ok. Keeps it interesting ;) I started reading this author based on another authors recommendation and, as always, I'm glad that I did. I am excited to read more from Jessi Gage.

Kudos to Jessie Gage...................................................  I read her first book in this series and it was very good.  It was a time travel.  A little different in that the heroine was pregnant and the hero a virgin.   But it was a really good read so buying the second one was a no brainer.  Figured the little black box would take someone to another time.  Though how she was going to make the bad girl from the last book likable was a mystery. Mystery solved.  She moved to a whole new genre.  The box takes a very remorseful and broken Anya to a different realm. The men are wolf like creatures .  The woman almost extinct.  Lots of other twists and turns.  JG really stepped out of the box when she wrote Anyas' story.  She also redeemed her without making excuses for her.  Liked that .   Loved the book.
