Book 4 – Shetland Islands, 1734 – Shapeshifting Pirates
This paranormal adventure contains a sexy vampire and a kick-ass wolf-shapeshifting heroine. It also contains lots of other sexy shape shifters, has strong romantic elements with HOT love scenes, and swashbuckling pirate action.
Broderick MacDougal follows the familiar yearning of his soul to a fierce warrior who is as seductive as a siren at sea – and she is just as deadly. The world of the supernatural opens to Broderick as he not only finds himself in the midst of an ancient war of shape shifters, the devious Cordelia Harley has re-entered his life and has a few of her own surprises.
Born into a hated race of Norse werewolves, Celina Hunter knows all too well the dangers of trusting anyone other than her two brothers. And yet the survival of her family hinges on trusting the strangely familiar Broderick MacDougal, a natural enemy of her kind…yet one her tribe’s Shaman advisors confirm is her soul mate. Enemy or not, Celina slips into the spell of this vampire’s promises of eternal love, gambling with all she holds dear.
Broderick and Celina are bound by a curse, but having come this far through the centuries, Broderick is not about to risk his chance at having his soul mate for eternity. The price, however, may be more than Celina is willing to pay as there is more at stake than just her immortal soul. Click to Tweet

...Broderick is a rugged Scotsman through and through! Son to Hamish and Moira, he was the elder of his two siblings ñ Maxwell the middle son, and Donnell the youngest. In 1478, Broderickís mother died in battle beside her sons and husband during a raid orchestrated by Angus Campbell and his father Fraser. At Moiraís funeral, Hamish MacDougal threw himself from the highest tower of the MacDougal estate. Though his sons had tried to talk him down, Hamish could not be swayed from his deed and shouted, ìíTis my fault she is dead! Iíve brought this upon all of you,î before he fell to his death.
Broderick and his brothers had to forge on with their lives and occupied themselves with building their own estates. Maxwell and Donnell both married and had children while Broderick focused on finishing his own holdings of Glenstrae, where he eventually settled in with his own wife, Evangeline. However, during a May Day celebration in 1485 at his manor - with his brothers and their families in attendance - Angus Campbell attacked the estate and slaughtered all in attenance, leaving Broderick for dead. Evangeline escaped and was rescued by a convent. Rescued by Cordelia Lynn Harley and with her assistance, Rick crossed over into immortality a year later, seeking revenge against his clan enemy. Traveling as a Gypsy in a caravan of wagons, he hid his vampiric nature by using his immortal gifts to tell fortunes while he searched for Angus Campbell, who is also a vampire.
Rick is a very accomplished painter, and gets to indulge in this pastime when he isn't fighting for those he loves.

This is the fourth book in the series and for me the first time I have read this author. I will definitely be checking out more from this author. This book had a lot going on in it. I don't feel like it was necessary for me to read the other books in the series first, but I am sure I missed out on a lot surrounding the story.
I really enjoyed the characters and the story line. There were lots of twist and turns. You never really knew what was coming next and that I really enjoyed. I also liked the idea of a vampire and werewolf cursed to love each other. It was a fascinating concept. A great read overall and i look forward to what will come next.
