ARC REVIEW Highland Wolf by Hannah Howell

Highland Wolf (Murray Family, #15)


The Murrays #15, Originally published in '07 this edition has a new cover, I love the new cover. I liked this one more than the last Howell book I read. This one was just fine to pick up and read even though I haven't read the first 14 books. I truly enjoyed how this one played out and the characters were well written. Three years ago James Drummond was accused of murdering his wife; cast as an outlaw he went into hiding biding his time before he can come back prove his innocence and claim his land and his daughter. Annora MacKay the poor relation who was born on the wrong side of the sheets was moved Dunncraig Keep to take care of her cousin's daughter. 

Donnell MacKay is a selfish brute of a man who worries more about fancy living than the tenants of the Keep and village, his second is no better. Annora knows something is not right with Donnell's story and even though he tries to alienate her from the rest of the people they still like her and trust her more than they like Donnell. James needed access inside the keep to search for proof that he was framed. Under the disguise of a French woodcarver he easily gains entrance. With the help of Big Berta, the cook, James starts his search but Annora is there to tempt him. Once Annora finds out the truth about James she starts to help which pays off for they soon discover the truth but they still need concrete proof for the King's man to take action against Donnell. Their timetable is forced to move up when Donnell announces that Annora has to marry his second in command. James having already fallen in love with her won't let that happen.


Overall, it was a good read. I liked the characters and the plot. The romance between James and Annora pretty much instintaneous the sparks flew and by the time they gave in the chemistry between was combustible. Meggie, James' daughter, was adorable and wise beyond her years. Big Berta is a force to be reckoned with. It had a heartwarming and funny ending.

Book Review For: The Wolf of Kisimul Castle by Heather McCollum
The Wolf of Kisimul Castle (Highland Isles) (Volume 3) - Heather McCollum
The Wolf of Kisimul Castle (Highland Isles, #3)The Wolf of Kisimul Castle by Heather McCollum
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

'The Wolf of Kisimul Castle by Heather McCollum is Book Three in the "Highland Isles" series. This is the story of Mairi Maclean and Alec MacNeil.  I have read the other book in this series (and LOVED THEM!) but feel this can easily be a standalone book.

Mari first marriage was for family alliance, which turned out very bad.  Mari first husband was an older and hateful man. Whose son mistreated her when he was away.  But now her husband is dead and she has returned to her brother. Tor Maclean (who we met in the first book).  But now Mari has willing agreed to marry again for family alliances but this time she thinks that it a safe choice. But she is taken by Alec before she can marry.

Alec has two children who are left with no mother after Mairi husband killed his wife, In addition, the clan and neighboring towns people feel that his Castle is cursed.  So most of the house workers are gone and the Castle is falling apart inside.  So Alec thinks a Wife For a Wife and takes Mairi.  But Mairi is a headstrong women who isn't easily talked into going along with his command of Marriage.

I so enjoyed this book and this series!  Ms. McCollum has a way to make you feel apart of the story.  I love watching Mairi build a relationship with the kids who were sad and neglected. Mari truly became the heart of Kisimul Castle! I also love with you have such great secondary characters that you hope you will see more of them soon in another story!!

Just Loved it!!

Review: The Wolf of Kisimul Castle by Heather McCollum
The Wolf of Kisimul Castle (Highland Isles) (Volume 3) - Heather McCollum

My review cross-posted from Wit and Sin


Alec MacNeil has a simple plan for revenge: kidnap his enemy’s bride on her wedding day and marry her himself. But Mairi Maclean is no wilting flower. She challenges him, tempts him, and isn’t about to give in and marry some man just because he says so. But even though she’s his captive, it’s not long before Mairi is breathing new life into Alec’s home. And the longer the two of them are around one another, the more difficult it becomes for them to resist their mutual attraction…

The Wolf of Kisimul Castle is one of the most fun books I’ve read in a long time. I can’t count the number of times Mairi and Alec made me grin and Heather McCollum’s writing just plain charmed the heck out of me.

Mairi is a strong, resourceful woman who isn’t afraid to speak her mind. When taken captive she doesn’t faint with fright, but defies Alec and makes herself comfortable in his dungeon. I loved Mairi’s cleverness, attitude, and warm heart. Kisimul Castle is a dark and depressing place when she arrives and she – along with Alec’s adorable children – turn it into a home. As for Alec, though he’s determined to avenge his wife’s murder, he’s no monster. He’s a kind and loving father and a leader who wants to do what’s best for his people. I adored both Alec and Mairi, which made it easy to become invested in their love story. Their romance is lively and fun; every part of it crackles with energy. The sparks that fly from their first meeting keep flying all through the book which made this a wonderfully satisfying romance.

Some books just make you happy when you read them, and that’s definitely the case for me with The Wolf of Kisimul Castle. This is the first book of Ms. McCollum’s that I’ve read and her style reminded me of vintage Julie Garwood. I couldn’t have been more entertained by Mairi and Alec’s story and I cannot wait to go back and read Ms. McCollum’s first two Highland Isles tales!

Highland Wolf Pact
Highland Wolf Pact: A Scottish Werewolf Shifter Romance - Selena Kitt

Highland Wolf Pact was a very entertaining read. The contain some of my favorite reading elements. The first being werewolves, the second being big/strong men, the last big strong men in kilts. Yep, the combination makes reading fun but a solid and entertaining story makes it better. The author has achieved this with boneheaded over protective highland wolf and a English bride that is headstrong and full of spunk. Throwing in a cowardly dill hole as the villain and his cowardly minions makes the read even better.

Happy Reading Everyone!

Review: Heart of the Highland Wolf (Heart of the Wolf #7) by Terry Spear
Heart of the Highland Wolf - Terry Spear
Review featured on Angel's Guilty Pleasures 
Heart of the Highland Wolf 

 Heart of the Wolf #7  
 Terry Spear  
 Paranormal Romance - Werewolves  
 Sourcebooks Casablanca  
 June 1st 2011  


It's a matter of pride...


Modern day werewolf laird Ian MacNeill reluctantly allows a film production company to use his castle, but he knows his secretive clan has a big problem when a beautiful red werewolf female who insists she's working on the film keeps showing up in the wrong places.


And a matter of pleasure...


Julia Wildthorn is not who she says she is-she's sneaking into Argent Castle to steal an ancient relic for her grandfather and to do research for her next werewolf romance novel. When she catches a glimpse of Ian, she realizes he's the perfect hero.





Heart of a Highland Wolf is book seven in the Heart of the Wolf series by Terry Spear. It can be read as a stand a lone.


This novel is full of mystery, suspense, adventure, romance, and sexy Scotsmen.


The story is so vivid and detailed that I felt like I was in Scotland right along with the characters. All the characters are intriguing, interesting, and have strong family ties. I loved all the Scotsmen that are introduced. Who doesn’t love a sexy man in a kilt? The story moves along at a nice pace, the romance is sweet, and the mystery/suspense was enjoyable.


I think the best thing about this series is that you can pick up any of the books and just go. You don’t have to read them in order to understand the world and characters.


Heart of the Highland Wolf was such a fun story to read. I love Ms. Spear’s Highland wolfs.


Rated: 5 Highland Stars
