Ok - so this one was nothing like I expected. I had expected a fun Scottish historical featuring shifters. It is acutally a fun Scottish CONTEMPORARY featuring all sorts of paranormal types. I'd long wondered why there weren't more Scottish contemporaries, and I finally found one! Yay! I just wish I had known it going in because I was a tad confused for the first little bit. The narrative was also written with a touch of Scottish accent built in and that took a little getting used to.
As a bear-shifter in a pack roaming the Scottish countryside, Bryce Matheson
embodies brute force and untamed abandon. As a widower, he's running scared. When Bryce attempted to open his scarred heart to another, she grew tired of waiting for him to state his intentions, and the unearthly beauty spurned him for someone who wasn't worthy. But now that fate has conspired to set Kenzie Denune free once again, Bryce vows to finally win her love.
Kenzie is a witch who summons her powers to protect those too weak to care for themselves. After surviving an abusive husband, she swears off men—even men like Bryce, whose iron muscles make her knees weak, and whose piercing eyes fill her with longing. Her life's purpose is to help others. However, dark forces have different plans for her gifts. To save herself, Kenzie must team up with the shifter who has always stirred her soul—and trust in a passion powerful enough to set her blood aflame.
Now once I adjusted to that a bit, I really fell in love with the story. It had so many fun elements like elderly witches with pink hair, jealous teddy bear like shifters, and a bad guy that was seriously scary. Bryce Matheson was a bit of an odd duck - and he always wore a kilt. He and Kenzie both have their fair share of tragedy in their past, and they will need to deal with it before they can move on.
There are a lot of twists and surprises in this. I was surprised at how easily they were worked into the storyline so that they just seemed to fit just right.
