Julia is travelling with her friend Maria under the guise of being part of the movie crew. In reality, Julia is a romance writer who writes about Highland wolves. She's been tasked by her grandfather with finding a box that is stashed away in the McNeill castle. Laird I...more
This story is wonderful blend of contemporary suspense; romance, with just the right mix of paranormal. Terry has a wonderful sense of humor and you can’t help but laugh out loud at some of the situations. The cast of characters is well-drawn and distinct with strong family ties with Ms. Spear’s trademark pack dynamics.
What I love about Terry Spear’s series, especially in this particular story, is this isn’t fantasy. It’s set in the real world and crafted in such a way you feel ther...more
A nice addition to the series. This series is on the lighter side without being intentionally humorous. But there is no end of the world, no evil magic etc. I enjoy the wolf culture in these books. It doesn't dominate the stories, but it's definitely there. Mostly this story is about two people meeting and falling in love. There are plenty of interesting secondary characters. The plot was nice except the ending mystery was a bit weak but I wasn't reading it for the mystery. There was...more
This amazing story is about Ian and Julia. They are both Lupus Garou but don't know it yet. Ian is the absolutely sexy Laird of a castle and Julia is a romance author. She writes romance about...you guess it...werewolves! So she is a bit scandalous. Ian wants nothing to do with the Yanks. He just wants to take care of his pack without outsider interference. Due to a bad business investment they are in dire need of money.
Julie and her friend Maria have an "ac...more
I am a shifter fan so I've read all of Spear's werewolf romances, but Heart of the Highland Wolf is my absolute favorite. I like the way that Spear cleverly sets the romance amid a historical movie being filmed at a Scottish castle, so that there are some historical elements mixed in with the contemporary.
A good part of wha...more
And this time we also get a hero who’s having financial difficulties, is on the brink of losing the castle that’s been in the family for centuries. Thus, Ian, laird of the MacNeill clan, is doing something he’d never think about otherwise - allowing humans to roam around his den while filming a movie....more
A very readable romance... a fun porch-swing afternoon escape. (RT Book Reviews 20110502)
Spear has penned a paranormal romance with all the elements needed for a decent escapist read... (Fresh Fiction 20110520)
A high-powered romance that satisfies on every level. (The Long and Short of It 20110603)
Spear packs a lot into Heart of the Highland Wolf, combining action, intrigue, compelling characters, and magic into an all around good read. (That's What I'm Talking About 20110603)

I loved the Highland aspect of this book in Terry Spears Series. Ian MacNieal, Laird of his clan who is struggling financially in order to keep his castle in Scotland. American Romance author, Julia Wildthorn, who happens to write about wolf romances, but she has writers block. These two come together when Ian must allow a movie production company to come on to certain areas of his castle to make a movie. The passionate love scenes were amazing. Love Terry Spears. I am hooked.
Heart of the Highland Wolf is a fun, light, summer read.

Julia finds herself attracted to and intrigued by the laird the minute she lays eyes on his picture. The feeling is mutual for Ian when he first sees Julia.
Although the book opens with a great scene, the overall story was a slow start. I didn't really start to get into the book until around chapter...more
Paranormal Romance- June 1st, 2011
Lupus garous (werewolves) Maria and Julia are visiting Scotland to film a movie at Argent Castle. While Maria is actually part of the film team, Julia is actually posing as her assistant while she researches for her latest romance book and searches for a hidden family mystery at the castle. Shortly after their arrival, they are threatened and find themselves grudgingly aided by the castle’s Laird, Ian MacNeil, who...more
I loved meeting the infamous Julia as well, she's been mentioned in quite a few of the previous books because of her occupation and it was nice to actually learn more about her.
The chemistry between her and Ian was explosive, they really seemed made for each other, just what they each needed. Especial...more

Julia didn't really impress me from the other books but i have to say once i got to know her i really did like her. I loved how she had hidden motives for wanting to film her movie at the castle, i also really liked that she was willing to trust her family even without all the facts as to the why.
I also liked Ian from the start, i liked how he kept his pack together and i enjoyed that he was so against any...more

LOVED this one! Set in the highlands of Scotland. Loved the main characters, Julia and Ian.
Julia is undercover. She's posing as her friend's assistant on this trip to Scotland with the production crew for a new movie. But really, Julia is going to do research for her new book, a werewolf romance book. And she's picked the Laird of the castle, Ian MacNeill, as the inspiration for the main character. Being of Scoti...more
Anyway I have read all her shifter books and love them. I was looking forward to this book as we have heard Julia Wildhaven name mentioned in previous books so I was curious to see this sassy women who wrote about werewolf secrets in person.
Maybe it's just me but I felt she was a bit of weak heroine - I wanted more from her. Maybe an argument before hooking up with the Laird, more determination, more heroic...more
Of course, I’m getting ahead of myself. Those kilted action heroes do their thing in this story and it was exciting and full of daring do, and I got a kick out of how Ms. Spear wrote it with such passion and intensity. It’s what lead up to those well written and high powered few chapters that made it all worthwhile.
Julia is the heroine and she’s delightful....more
The premise of the book left me somewhat confused because what the blurb in back says doesn’t match up to what the book is really about. Julia Wildthorn is a Lupus Garous-a werewolf and a romance writer. She comes over to Scotland from America with her friend’s movie production company hiding herself as part of the production crew. Her cover story to her friend is that she wants to write her next romance book about Scottish werewolve...more

09/09/2011: This was just ok, for this series. The heroine, Julia had been mentioned in the previous book as an author of romance novels, but wasn't an active character. Ian McNeill, the Highland Laird was never previously mentioned. All of the previous books in the series had characters in common and relationships of some sort that had gone on previously. This was just a story 'out of the blue' that had nothing to do with the o...more
