What makes JUST IN TIME FOR A HIGHLANDER unique in the ‘time traveling to the past historical romance’ genre is that the genders are switched. The guy, Duncan gets shuttled off to the Highlands of Scotland and meets a Scottish lass, Abby and they fall in love.The conflict (aside from Duncan being stuck in a time with no flush toilets) revolves around Abby trying to avoid war with the English, keeping the clan safe, and avoiding a forced marriage.

I had always meant to read this series since I have read and enjoyed Terry Spear’s other shifter series Heart of the Wolf. Like usual I jumped into reading a series right in the middle with the fourth book and luckily like Heart of the Wolf, Heart of the Jaguar is a series you can just jump into with out any confusion.
THE HIGHLAND DRAGON’S LADY is a good gothic ghost story combined with dragons because why not! I enjoyed the way the mystery of the spirit haunting the house started to unravel with a classic seance gone wrong scene but the worldbuilding was a bit hard for me to grasp.
HER LONE WOLF is a fun, suspenseful paranormal romance that leans heavily towards the thriller genre. There are government conspiracies and elaborate chase scenes with a tight plot and tons of twists and turns.
A HIGHLAND WOLF CHRISTMAS is a wonderfully sweet holiday romance stock full of kilted Scotsmen who relish in sword fighting and castles with many a hidden nook to have your romantic trysts in. 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 more about their lives.
While not veering far from the historical romance formula, ONE BITE PER NIGHT still manages to delight the reader with it’s fun heroine, brooding hero, and matchmaking side characters. This is paranormal romance at its finest, with the romance taking center stage, and the paranormal just being one aspect of the story. One may worry that with the combination of historical and paranormal romance, that Ann would do neither well, but instead, she excels at both, with a wonderful story and world I can’t wait to revisit.
From the moment that we were introduced to Verden in THE OUTCAST PRINCE, I knew he was a character I wanted to see more of. And in LORD OF THE HUNT, the second book in the Court of Annwyn series, Verden doesn’t disappoint. Between having tall, dark and handsome down to a science, and being one of the most powerful people in the court, he was a hero I was drooling over from page one.
THE OUTCAST PRINCE, first in the Court of Annwyn series, creates a whole new world of fae politics and mythology as a backdrop to a very sweet romance story. It’s a good book, but I am having a hard time writing this review. There is not to much that stands out about THE OUTCAST PRINCE. And while that’s neither good nor bad, I do feel that the book was a bit mediocre.
THE MAGIC OF I DO is a lively paranormal historical romance that felt light and airy, not unlike the breezes that transport the faeries between the real world and the faerie wold. I got caught up in the whirlwind, comforted by the fact that THE MAGIC OF I DO doesn’t break any romance novel molds, and I was able to enjoy the faeries, the relationship, and the cute funny moments as a result.
Full of strapping alpha werewolves that would make me weak in the knees before they ever started saying “lass…” A HIGHLAND WEREWOLF WEDDING was exactly what I was expecting. It is your typical romance: boy meets girl, pretty predictable conflicts ensure, boy and girl end up together happily ever after. Though I wasn’t surprised, A HIGHLAND WEREWOLF WEDDING was well written, easy to pick up out of series order, and featured a great couple with tons of chemistry. A contemporary romance set in Scotland, it also had a bit of a historical feel to it, likely because of the abundance of castles, daggers and kilts.
