Scottish Wearbear: An Unexpected Affair by Lorelei Moone *Randi's Review*

Scottish Wearbear: An Unexpected Affair by Lorelei Moone

Romance novelist, Clarice Adler, has lost the inspiration to write ever since dumping her cheating boyfriend. How do you dream up a plot of two people falling in love, when you’ve stopped believing in love yourself? But her deadline is looming, and her career hangs in the balance, so she decides to lock herself away on the secluded Scottish Isle of Skye to finish her manuscript. Upon meeting Derek McMillan there, it seems she’s found her new muse and the words start to flow out of her as if by magic. Clarice falls for him, hard, despite knowing nothing about the man, except that he’s unavailable.

Derek McMillan has been managing his farm and renting out a few holiday cottages on his own for years now. He deals with the occasional tourist for some extra money, but mostly keeps to himself. When he first lays eyes on the curvy beauty, Clarice, he immediately regrets accepting her booking. Lightning strikes, and as much as he tries to deny it, his inner bear knows that she’s his mate. But he’s a shifter, and she’s a human, and the two can’t ever mix, can they? 

In this steamy paranormal romance novella, follow along as an impossible love blossoms between two people, who couldn’t be more different. One might say fate intended for them to meet, if you believe in that sort of thing, but they’re both set on fighting their attraction with everything they’ve got. They’re going to need another push to admit to themselves as well as each other what’s going on…

I enjoy books like this. The human girl meets a shifter and has an instant attraction. It's so intense that she doesn't really understand, because she doesn't know what he really is.

Shifter meets human girl and knows, in his bones, that this girl is his mate, but because shifters and human interaction is discouraged, he tried his hardest to avoid her, to forget about their mutual attraction and move on. But of course he can't.

In this book Clair, the human girl, is a romance writer that has had her heart broken by her cheating boyfriend, and subsequently has writers block after her faith in love and romance is shaken.

Derek, our Bear shifter, owns a cabin that he rents out to Clair when she decides to get away for a while to, hopefully, finish her book.

He never expected to fall for a human, but after meeting her he knows that this fragile human woman is his mate.

But...because boys, shifter or not, are usually stupid (my father backs me up on this) he tries to avoid her...but if anyone has ever read a book like this before we can all guess that that doesn't go as he planned for it to.

This is a novella. I recently changed my stance on reading those. I have come to appreciate their shortness at times, especially when life is busy and you haven't much time for reading. And this one was very enjoyable.

Now as I have (hopefully) made clear in my above description, this story, while nice and enjoyable, was predictable. But in a world that is anything but, sometimes a predictable HEA short story is exactly what a girl (or guy) wants to read.

So if you are looking for a life changing epic story, this isn't the book for you. But if you are looking for a quick and fun read that will give you a smile and a happy sigh, look no farther.

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
