By: Vonnie Davis

Two wandering souls discover that true love needs no words in this explosive, fantastical novel from Vonnie Davis.

Somehow able to telepathically communicate with animals, Paisley Munro has found meaning in her so-called gifts by working as a veterinary assistant. But while traveling to Scotland for a relative’s funeral, Paisley fears that she really has lost her mind. Out in the highlands, she hears distinctly human thoughts coming from a wild bear. Terrified and desperate, she returns to the lodge and collapses in the powerful arms of its owner, a mysterious man with whom she shares a simmering attraction.

Creighton Matheson and his fellow shape-shifters have been roaming this land freely for centuries. Now Paisley may inherit his home, putting his kind in grave danger. His mistrust only deepens when he realizes she can read his mind. Yet he cannot deny that this tantalizing woman makes him burn with desire—and hunger for the prospect of a tender love. Now Creighton must decide which would hurt more: revealing the truth or losing Paisley forever.


A Rock Chick Fairy Review

I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

This book is certainly a surprise. I knew that it had magic and romance. I didn't know that it would also have humor. I like it! :) 


The plot is supposed to be quite simple really, an animal communicator meets a Scottish shapeshifter... It's predictable that they should fall for each other and bam! Happily ever after. However, it's not that simple. There are other factors... like a fiance back home waiting for the heroine, a curse that'll doom the hero's fate and a greedy man who's actions got out of hand. This is a story of how their lives change in just a short time. 

I enjoyed every twist and turn in the story. It made me very interested in their history. Ahem, I even researched on bear legends! I almost always enjoy shifter stories... there are so many things that can happen and it's unpredictable.. this one just like that. It surely is magical. :)  


Paisley, the animal communicator has a good heart, but she has been shunned away by everyone except her grandma and (ugh!) her fiance because of her gift. She finds peace with her grandma and goes to the highlands and meets the hero. I like how she handles herself around Creighton. He's very intimidating, but she stood up for herself... Not at first, but she got the hang of it! I will be honest as to say that I didn't like her crying jag. She was always crying... even in scenes that I didn't think were dramatic enough. Anyway, I still like her because she's not a pushover when it comes to Creighton.

Creighton, the laird of the land has a lot of responsibilities. He has to do what needs to be done. With the curse hanging over his head, he's now more on edge. When he meets Paisley, he couldn't trust how he feels right away. He has to think of the clan, but all he thinks of is Paisley... an obsession of some sort. :) I like how he is with Paisley too. He's considerate and he's always very sweet. It might be a tad bit too cheesy, but it's okay. He's like a romance poet in some scenes. A shifter poet! Nice! ;p

THE COMPLICATION in this book teaches us that there are just some things that a person shouldn't lie about. It also tells us that the truth will come out eventually and it will bite you in the ass if you're not careful. 

THEIR BANTER is what YOU SHOULD LOOK FORWARD TO!! It's entertaining! They fight with words and then make up later! I love it! It's a part of this couple's charm.

The other characters are great! They made the story more colorful. The brothers surely are something to look forward to as well. They are hilarious when they're together!! ^___^ Paisley's grandmother is also so nice and um... rare. haha! I can imagine her outfits.I love her because she's so good to her grand daughter. One of the best grandmas in fiction land! 

THE ENDING is a bit abrupt. I wanted to know more. I wanted to see them get married. I wasn't looking at the page, so I was shocked to find out that I was on the last page. MORE PLEASE!!

All in all, if you like highlanders, magic and humor... this one's for you! I give this 4 fairy wings!!
