A Highlander’s Obsession

Contemporary Paranormal Romance – Bear Shifters



Two wandering souls discover that true love needs no words in this explosive, fantastical novel from Vonnie Davis.

Somehow able to telepathically communicate with animals, Paisley Munro has found meaning in her so-called gifts by working as a veterinary assistant. But while traveling to Scotland for a relative’s funeral, Paisley fears that she really has lost her mind. Out in the highlands, she hears distinctly human thoughts coming from a wild bear. Terrified and desperate, she returns to the lodge and collapses in the powerful arms of its owner, a mysterious man with whom she shares a simmering attraction.

Creighton Matheson and his fellow shape-shifters have been roaming this land freely for centuries. Now Paisley may inherit his home, putting his kind in grave danger. His mistrust only deepens when he realizes she can read his mind. Yet he cannot deny that this tantalizing woman makes him burn with desire—and hunger for the prospect of a tender love. Now Creighton must decide which would hurt more: revealing the truth or losing Paisley forever.

ARC A Highlander’s Obsession

A Highlander’s Obsession is book one in a Highlander’s Beloved series by Vonnie Davis. I can’t believe how much fun this read was for me. Ms. Davis has created a delightful magical tail full of humor and sweet romance. We get kilted Scotsmen and shifters in the Highlands. Who can resist a sexy Scottish shifter in a kilt?

Paisley Munro, human with a gift for talking to animals, but when she goes to Scotland for a funeral she hears a distinct humans thoughts. Crighton Matheson, Laird of the clan and bear shape-shifter. He cares about his clan and family, very protective of what is his, and loyal. All alpha sexy shifter. 

A Highlander’s Obsession is filled with humor, emotion, magic and sweet romance, the plot is simple, but interesting. I was captivated by the very first sentence and could not put the book down tell the end. What caught my attention was the humor in this book. I was pleasantly surprised that their was so much humor built into this lovely sweet romance. The author does a marvelous job setting the scene and giving the readers a real feel of the sights and country of Scotland. The twists and turns keep the reader engaged and entertained. 

The characters are just delightful in this story. Even the secondary characters where enjoyable and I can’t forget about the brothers, they are something. Effie, my god she was a hoot. I could picture her so clearly and the things she say’s had me ROFL. She does have a touch of the mystical in her, buried in a caring sweet package that wants to see her only grand-daughter happy. I loved Effie! Paisley was amusing. I did go back and forth in liking her or not. It all had to do with her back and forth in being the strong feisty women or the wilting lily who faint at too much information overload. How can she have such a hard time accepting these things when she herself has a gift? Crighton was attractive. I enjoyed his protective instincts towards his clan and Paisley. I loved how his romantic passionate side came out. The romance between Crighton and Paisley was sweet and I enjoyed the banter between them. Once these two get together their love making is hot and steamy. 

A Highlander’s Obsession is a fun read with sexy bear shifters, kilted heroes, and magic all set in the Highlands of Scotland. This is one read not to miss especially if you love bear shifters. I am looking forward to more Highland magic!
