A Highland Wolf Christmas

A Highland Wolf Christmas | Heart of the Wolf #15


It’s going to take a lot of mistletoe…

Guthrie MacNeill, financial advisor for his clan and werewolf pack, is at his wit’s end when the pack leader’s mate hires a gorgeous party planner to bring holiday cheer to the castle. Guthrie’s wildly attracted to Calla, except he can’t reconcile the fact that his job is to save the clan’s money, and hers seems to be to spend it.

To warm this Highlander’s heart.

Calla Stewart has never had a more difficult client. The laird and lady of the castle are delightful, but the handsome Highlander holding the purse strings is quite impossible. Since she specializes in holiday magic, Calla hopes she can make the scrooge-like wolf lighten up. Then Guthrie takes on the role of Highland warrior to protect her from an unexpected threat, and the holidays take a turn for the passionate.


               Women shrieked and shouted, but Calla was on the other side of the tree where she couldn’t see the commotion. But then she saw the twelve-foot tree toppling over—right toward her.
               Before Calla could get out of the way, something hit her hard from the side and slammed her against the floor. Just before the tree landed on top of them. He was on top of her, smelling like the great outdoors, fir tree, and musky, sexy male wolf. Guthrie.
               “Sorry,” he mumbled against her ear, branches framing his head and touching the floor on either side of her. “I meant to rescue you.”
               She smiled. “From … the tree?”
               He smiled back. “That was the idea.”
               Guthrie lifted his head, smiling at her with a mischievous glint in his green eyes. Despite all the commotion, and to Calla’s surprise, Guthrie kissed her. His lips were warm and masculine and tasted like wassail. Cinnamon, apple cider, and oranges. She licked his mouth to enjoy more of the taste and he licked her back, smiling. Then he deepened the kiss.
               Oh my God! She hadn’t felt this naughty in forever! The men were going to move the tree soon, and here she and Guthrie would be. Kissing. In front of several members of his pack.

  1. Omg I loved that excerpt! I’m such a fan of this series and of this author. I like just about any type of paranormal reads but for the holidays I like the backdrop settings to have snow, cold, ice and lots of snow. Mostly because we just don’t get snow here and I miss it.

  2. My favorite Christmas read is actually a Christmas listen (I know hold back your shock). I’m Dreaming of an Undead Christmas by Molly Harper. I don’t do many Christmas stories. As someone who worked for ecommerce for twelve years, I became to hate Christmas. This year will be my third Christmas away from angry customers. I’m slowing getting to like it again, though I don’t think I will ever get back into it the way I used to be, but at least I’m not all bah humbug anymore. 🙂

    • I’m not big on the holidays either, so you’re not alone, and when I do read a Christmas story, I must do so in DECEMBER. You can’t go wrong with Molly Harper, especially in audio!

    Love this author and since i enjoyed the excerpt, i am sure the new book will be one of my favorites and I enjoyed “A Highland Werewolf Wedding”.

  4. Weirdo! I’m not sure if it’s international, the Terms & Conditions section is blank, but if you win, feel free to send it my way. I’ll BUY you another book. LOL

    I haven’t lived in snow during the Holidays — ever, except for one year in Philadelphia when my hubby was attending Drew University for his Ph.D. I don’t miss it though because a lot of our family still gets together every Christmas or Thanksgiving at our home here in central valley California…and that’s what I care most about. We do it potluck style so it isn’t a burden on anyone, we go for long walks in-between the food marathons, reminisce and play board games. It’s a wonderful life we have here during the Holidays. Plus, I like to take time out from festivities to read Christmas romances from my fave authors, one of whom is–tada: Terry Spear!!! Thanks for the post.

    • See, I’d find that super weird. I’ve always experienced the four seasons, and as much as I complain when it’s -30C outside, I wouldn’t want to forgo the white stuff altogether. It helps that I’m into snowboarding mind you because otherwise I can see how those winter months could get long. At least readers who don’t live in the North can experience the season vicariously through Spear’s books!

    LITTLE WOMEN is my favorite read at Christmastime. “I’ve got the key to my castle in the air, but whether I can unlock the door remains to be seen.”


    I don’t have a favorite, but I did like “A Christmas Promise” by Mary balogh.
