“ARC given for an honest review”
Cursed to live forever with neither wife nor child, Ronan Sutherland has watched all he cherishes turn to dust—more than once. For hundreds of years, he’s been trapped behind the mists of Loch Ness, hoping to identify the one woman who is prophesied to break the spell. Now, at last, the fates have aligned, and he’s being sent into the future to fetch her. After a single glimpse, Ronan knows he’s been waiting all his life for this passionate woman.
Unlike her time-traveling sisters, Mairi Sinclair is perfectly content to remain in the present. As a hospital nurse in Edinburgh, she cherishes the opportunity to put her gift of healing powers to good use. But everything changes the morning a mysterious wolf darts in front of her car. Touching the wounded creature’s tawny coat, a tingle surges through her. Yet when she returns with aid, Mairi is shocked to find instead a man with broad shoulders and fire in his eyes—a man who tempts her to unleash the animal within.
Ronan Shifted in the saddle, wishing for the thousandth time his heritage had been different.
Ronan Sutherland and his family have been under a curse to be a shape shifter for years until he can find his one true love. Ronan has sort out help from an old sage Granny Sinclair who has prophesied that her granddaughter would be the one to break Ronan’s curse.
This is the third book in the series of Highland Hearts that included time travel, curses, witches, shape shifters and family who meddles. I didn’t enjoy reading it all that much and I couldn’t really get into the book at all really. I felt that it was a little hard to connect to the character. The love story was a little to sappy for me to take. I felt that there were a time the book spent too much time on the angst of the curse and it got a little boring to read. It’s very rarely that I would agree with the villain in books. But by the end of this I felt that I was really leaning towards the evil witches assessment of Ronan.
To be honest the blurb was what attracted me to reading the book in the first place and I was very disappointed with the actual book.
