A fun read, but again, I didn't enjoy it quite as much as the first in the series. Elspeth and Ben spent a little too much time jumping to conclusions and then acting on them (foolishly, each and every time) for my taste. It made me want to smack their heads together a la the Three Stooges until they saw sense. It definitely gave more insight into the relationships between the characters, though, and I am looking forward to seeing how Will and Prisca can resolve their issues in book three. Hopefully I won't be temped to channel my inner Moe too much. ;-)more
Benjamin Westfield has a little problem…his ability to transform into his Lycan form has vanished and he feels compelled to seek out a witch who can heal him and restore his inner beast. However, when Ben finds the beautiful Elspeth Campbell, she is not what he expects and he finds himself wanting more than just her healing arts…
A good premise and a sweet romance but not as compelling as the first book in the series.
Ellie and Ben are a cute couple and have great interaction and dialogue but their chemistry is more subdued. Ellie is engaging and spirited, and Ben is gorgeous, protective and sympathetic but can be obtuse at times.
The main plot is very straightforward with no real conflict, which results in a light and easy read. The inclusion of several subplots makes for some interesting side stories and excellent characterization of secondary characters. Caitrin, one of the witches in Elli’s coven, is particularly well developed and is also the heroine in book #4 of the series.
The writing flows and the story is well-paced. Nevertheless, the frequent use of Scottish dialect, i.e., lots of “ye” instead of “you”, “ken” instead of “know” and “doona” instead of “do not”, was a little distracting at the beginning. It’s been a while since I read a book with this type of accent and it took me a while to get used to it again.
In sum, a charming and amusing read for when you are in the mood for something lighter. Will and Prisca’s book is next and I’m really looking forward to it.more
