ARC Book review: Laird Wolf (Takhini Shifters #2) by Vivian Arend
eARC provided by author
He’s a wolf in a kilt. That pretty much says it all…
Pulling off a rescue mission at a remote castle in Scotland should be an easy task for lone wolf Damon Black. He’ll flash some muscle, show a little Alpha power, and do it takes to ease Addie MacShay’s fears. But the woman who throws herself into his arms and cries boyfriend is more intriguing than anticipated. The sexy she-wolf’s got more curves, more tantalizing scent, more of everything he desires.
Addie’s job cataloguing an estate at the Sterling-Wylde Manor is complicated by the ongoing discovery of new wills and the two creepy heirs who won’t leave her alone. But her fake boyfriend turns out to be a far greater threat—not only is he fun and flirtatious, he looks delicious in a kilt. She craves his touch, but with her empathic skills on overdrive, touch is the last thing she needs.
Damon’s fighting his unruly inner beast. Addie’s fighting their incredible sexual pull. They'll both have to lower their guard to make this more than a Highland fling.
This is a quick Takhini Shifters novella. I have not read book one but didn't feel i missed anything by picking up this novella without reading book one " Copper King". I wouldn't mind going back to read it now though. Damon Black heads to Scotland to look out for a friend of his best friends wife. Follow that? Addie is cataloguing items at a estate in Scotland while a lawyer wades through multiple wills the owner left behind to decide the true owners. Unfortunately two of the hopeful owners are there with her and giving her the creeps. They are cat shifters and sneaky. Damon arrives and she pretends he's her boyfriend to scare off the creepy guys and to keep her safe. Damon is more than just a pretend boyfriend though. It doesn't take him long to feel the pull between them. While Addie works, Damon watches out for her and gets to know everyone around the estate. The pair grow closer and discover they are more than a fling. Quick but satisfying read. Loved both Addie and Damon. There chemistry was red hot!
