A Highland Wolf on a Mission...
Duncan MacNeill is hell-bent on catching the thief who's stolen the clan's fortune and run off to Grand Cayman Island. Duncan has rarely left his homeland and he couldn't care less about an island paradise. He never expected to find a beautiful distraction who will show him just how appealing paradise can be...
Meets a Dangerous Distraction...
Lone wolf and botanist Shelley Campbell headed to the island to study the old growth forests. She didn't count on meeting a handsome Highlander who can't keep his paws off her.
Who doesn’t like a rugged hot Scottish warrior in the Grand Cayman Islands? I certainly do, and Shelley Campbell, an attractive lone wolf definitely isn’t complaining. But when she finds out Duncan’s real reason for visiting the island, she must decide between keeping her quiet and simple life, or joining in on Duncan’s fight.
I must admit, I had a hard time finishing this book. The premise was interesting and the story started out promising, but the passion between the two characters seemed too easy (it seemed the lone wolf did not put up much of a fight when the alpha warrior male decided he wanted her). There were a few background characters thrown in the mix and it didn’t seem as though they had any real reason to be there. I found myself much more interested in Duncan’s brothers than in Duncan himself. And Shelley’s character didn’t seem to be as fleshed out as Duncan was, leaving me longing to know more about her at the end of the story. Silverman, Duncan’s foe, was one dimensional and not sinister enough to pose a real threat.
For those who are looking for a slow paced romance that focuses more on the romance scenes than anything else, this book is right for you. But for those who are interested in action, history, and characters that grip your imagination, you might want to try another Highlander brother.
