Overall Rating:  4 Rockin’ ★★★★

Colleen is an American and has inherited her family’s castle in Scotland.  She is also a royal and can change into her wolf whenever she wants too and this is a big problem. In order to inherit Colleen must live at the castle for a full year and that could be a disaster if she has to hide her wolf from the castle staff.  Her father had told her that all of the staff would be human, including Grant the castle’s administrator. 
“As a royal, she had very few human roots, which meant she could choose when she shifted-as opposed to the more newly turned, whose wolfish drive was dictated by the moon. But she would haave to run and she was already feeling the need, the tingling urge to stretch her…wolf legs.
Grant’s family has administered Farraige Castle for over seven centuries.  He is lupus garou and his wolf genetics have insured that he will have a long life to continue his family’s legacy. When Colleen’s father had inherited the castle at his mother’s death he had returned to the states and left the management to Grant.  Now that Colleen is coming to Scotland to take over as owner he is concerned that she will try to oust him as the castle’s manager.  Grant comes up with a plan to convince Colleen that he all of the other people that live in and around the castle are barbarians and dangerous so that she will leave and go back home.  He enlists his friend Ian to help with a fake battle to scare Colleen. 
"Besides,” he said, clomping down the centuries-old stone steps, “she won’t last that long.  Once she sees all those sharp swords and dirks, and all that fighting and mayhem, she’ll turn around and leave, realizing she really didn’t want to stay her after all.
Little does Grant know that his plans have all been exposed to Colleen by her best friend, Julia Wildthorn, now mated to Ian MacNeill.  No one knows that they are best friends and that she knows about the mock battle and plans to run her off, so Colleen plans to video tape the entire battle and look at any time she wants too.  Colleen also plans on sharing her video with her BFF.  She cannot believe that her father lied to her about all the staff being human when they are all wolves.  When Grant’s younger brother Lachlan, stops fighting and goes to introduce himself to Colleen he soon discovers that she is not frightened at all.  Then she tells him the reason that she is only videotaping Grant and Ian.
 “I promised Ian’s wife, Julia, that I would video record Ian if I could and email the recording to her later.” Lachlan drew in an audible breath, and she couldn’t tell whether he was amused or worried.  “You know Ian’s wife?”
Regardless what Grant tried Colleen was having none of it.  She was here to stay and Grant would have to just get over it. When an old enemy tries to lure Colleen to his side, Grant realizes that she may be the wolf for him.  Will they find a way to bridge the gap between them?  Will Grant be able to protect her from the enemy that wants to control her inheritance?
