Bearing It All
Highlander's Beloved #3
By: Vonnie Davis
Releasing October 27, 2015
A Scottish hunter and a French secret agent find themselves on a collision course with danger—and irresistible desire—in Vonnie Davis’s new bear-shifting Highlander novel, perfect for fans of Jennifer Ashley and Shelly Laurenston.
In the pine-dense mountains of the Scottish Highlands, shape-shifter Ronan Matheson is running free when a desperate woman parachutes out of the sky, directly onto his furry, powerful chest. Instead of clawing her to death, Ronan’s inner bear longs to keep her safe. Once he’s back in human form, Ronan is amused by the mysterious beauty’s fearless attitude—and tempted by her expertly toned physique. But what could she possibly be doing in this isolated stretch of the Highlands?
French intelligence agent Anisa Brosseau never imagined she’d be on the CIA’s bad side—until she’s framed for treason and forced to flee in a stolen drone. Hiding out in a remote cabin, Anisa just needs some time to clear her name. What she doesn’t need is a brooding, muscle-bound Scot in a skimpy kilt to drive her crazy with lust. But when Anisa’s enemies come knocking on his door, Ronan calls on a secret weapon to protect his turf and the bonny lass he’s come to love.
And yet another good one by Ms. Davis!! While this 3rd installment in the Highlander's Beloved series doesn't have as much nail-biting external conflict as the others (for me, anyway) it doesn't disappoint! Ronan is adorable as is his bear. While Anisa fell a bit flat in some areas for me especially inconsistencies of her kickass CIA background not kicking in while it should have, she is a perfect match for this Matheson brother. They have good chemistry and a deep appreciation for the other.
And Effie. Good old Effie. She had me laughing my ass off a couple of times. Ms. Davis created a comic relief character to rival ALL others. Is there an award for that somewhere?
Would I recommend? Definitely. Especially if you enjoy shifters who know their minds - and their inner animals - and will fight to the death if need be in order to keep their mate safe.
Vonnie Davis, who studied English at Penn State, likens herself to a croissant: crusty, wrinkled, flaky—and best served with strong coffee. After a career as a technical writer, she’s spending her retirement playing fairy godmother to her characters, giving them their happily-ever-afters. Six fantastic, talented kids call her “Grandma” and brighten her world in so many ways. She lives in Southern Virginia with her husband, author Calvin Davis.
