Financial advisor Guthrie MacNeill isn’t a complete Scrooge—he just hates the enormous cost associated with the Christmas holiday season. Needless to say, when his pack hires a party planner to decorate the castle, he’s at his wit’s end. Until Calla Stewart arrives on the scene with her mistletoe in hand.
Calla has never had a client as difficult as Guthrie, but she’s determined to give the pack a Christmas season they will never forget—no matter how much it costs. But when her ex-fiancé begins stalking her and threatening her safety, Guthrie decides to loosen his grip on the purse strings and let out his inner Highland warrior wolf to protect her.
A HIGHLAND WOLF CHRISTMAS is a wonderfully sweet holiday romance stock full of kilted Scotsmen (well more like Scotswerewolves) who relish in sword fighting and castles with many a hidden nook to have your romantic trysts underneath a mistletoe. Both Calla and Guthrie are featured in previous book in this series so it was neat to finally see more of these two and learn about their lives. These books can be read as a standalone so Calla's wedding debacle is very easily explained for those who are just starting the series out with this book.
The plot is well paced with some fun action scenes in it. Calla is a strong and independent business woman so naturally having Guthrie being her bodyguard leads to some annoyances on Calla's part. My favorite fight scenes revolve around some hilarious hijinks Guthrie gets involved in at a few of Calla's parties. I liked the little twist involving Calla's ex as I spent most of the story thinking that his stalking was a simple case of being a jilted fiance who is just very obsessive about wanting her back.
Calla and Guthrie make an adorable couple and I kept rooting for these two to make up their minds already about their feelings for eachother. Both of them are reeling from their past relationships and have to come to terms with what they went through. They eventually work out their issues through some very playful and sweet flirting that eventually leads to much more.
HIGHLAND WOLF CHRISTMAS is a perfectly sexy Scottish werewolf romance that will get you into the Christmas spirit no matter what the season you read it in.Series Titles:
