Combining Werewolves and Highlanders for the Ultimate Feast
By Terry Spear

When I wrote contemporary heroes, they were sweet, and attractive, and protective. But there’s something about a paranormal hero that is just hotter, and more powerful, and more sinfully hunky. It’s just…normal for them. Somehow.

Combine that with the already hunky, powerful, kilted, or not, Highland hero and you have the ultimate hero. Truly.

Most of you know that Highlanders are wolfish by nature, so make them a real wolf, and you’ve got it! You’ll find them in: Heart of the Highland Wolf, A Howl for a Highlander, and A Highland Werewolf Wedding, just released. Next, I’m working on A Hero of a Highland Wolf (Spring release, 2014), and after that: Mistletoe, Mayhem and a Highland Wolf (Oct release, 2014).

So the hot Highland wolves just keep on coming. In A Highland Werewolf Wedding, I had to have Cearnach wearing a kilt first thing. I love kilts and everything else that is worn with them—the dirk, the sporran, and what isn’t worn with them. Leaves much more to the imagination, aye?

So we find him in ye auld Scotland at first, and that was fun. Then again, when he’s attending a wedding in Highland formal dress. Only wolves do things a bit differently. In the old days, the Scots carried swords to a wedding to keep any man from stealing their bride. Now, today, they still wear their sgian dubh (dirk/dagger in their hose), but they leave the sword home. Not so with the Highland wolves. They go by the old ways—mainly because they still have trouble with other Highland wolf clans.

We have an American lass (she-wolf type), who runs our hero off the road, so he says—she says otherwise, and now she’s caught up in all this clan rivalry when she has nothing to do with any of it. Or does she?

But what does an American woman want our hero to do??? First…we see how gorgeous those hunky Highlanders look, abs and all, without their shirts. Yep. She tells him she thinks he should take it off to keep it from getting all wet. She’s smart.

He’s amused.

But does she stop there? What do you think? Would you do if you were her?

She is absolutely not going to peek or ask what’s under the kilt. She’s going to suggest they shift into wolves. That takes care of the whole matter. Don’t you think? He’s got to remove his kilt then. Think he’s game?

He’s a wolf. Sure he’s game.

I love Highland wolves. They’re just too sexy for their kilts.

So yeah, he starts out with wearing his kilt until the heroine talks him out of it. And at the end of the story, he’s wearing it again. And I just bet she’ll talk him out of it again!

Wouldn’t you loved to be loved by a Highland wolf?
