"Elaine Hawthorn is a gray American werewolf, currently out of work, and on a mission to share in a family treasure. When she arrives in Scotland, she nearly has a head-on collision with one hot, kilt-garbed Highlander, and runs him off the road.
Werewolf laird Cearnach MacNeill isn't happy Elaine ruined his car, but he quickly becomes her protector after a misunderstanding lands her right in the middle of two feuding clans. Now he's out to ensure that this sexy female wolf gets her fair share of her clan's treasure. He knows he should leave well enough alone, but it's too late to leave his heart out of it." ~ From Goodreads
First of all I loved the previous book A Wolf in A SEAL's Clothing! A Highland Werewolf Wedding was more of a miss for me. It's harder to but my finger on why I didn't really enjoy reading this book after all the characters were funny, maybe slightly over the top, the action was there, but maybe little too messy and frantic yet times so slow, the romance was sexy but maybe not really hot more like convenient.
So you see I liked things and yet I didn't... has this happened to you before? It's really hard to point at the what nots when the whats greats are there too. I don't know! Alright, gathering myself here.
Perhaps what got me here was that there were a bunch of 'old characters' from the previous books - which I have not read - this didn't bother me in A Wolf in a SEAL's Clothing because the 'oldies' didn't make an appearance it was a great standalone from the Heart of The Wolf series, but A Highland Werewolf Wedding was odd as in you got this people you don't know smiling oddly or making weird comments that are totally them but you have no clue into their personality so all you are left with is a feeling 'that's odd'. When writing a stand-alone series you got to be really careful about not making your supporting cast aka the ones who came before too unique and impressive on their own right like they were in their own book - and please no knowing smiles it drives me nuts!
Okay, so this review felt little bit of the brunt of my annoyance at stand-alone series that get too odd when a bunch of previous characters make appearances - but I think that was my main beef with the book, then add in the things mentioned in the first paragraph and I just dragged through this.
I shall remove my stand-alone series rant off the rating below and just focus on the other things.
