Two wandering souls discover that true love needs no words in this explosive, fantastical novel from Vonnie Davis.
Somehow able to telepathically communicate with animals, Paisley Munro has found meaning in her so-called gifts by working as a veterinary assistant. But while traveling to Scotland for a relative’s funeral, Paisley fears that she really has lost her mind. Out in the highlands, she hears distinctly human thoughts coming from a wild bear. Terrified and desperate, she returns to the lodge and collapses in the powerful arms of its owner, a mysterious man with whom she shares a simmering attraction.
Creighton Matheson and his fellow shape-shifters have been roaming this land freely for centuries. Now Paisley may inherit his home, putting his kind in grave danger. His mistrust only deepens when he realizes she can read his mind. Yet he cannot deny that this tantalizing woman makes him burn with desire—and hunger for the prospect of a tender love. Now Creighton must decide which would hurt more: revealing the truth or losing Paisley forever.

Large sexy shifter men in kilts with yummy accents…Yes Please!
Paisley has a secret…she can communicate with animals telepathically. It’s something that has been more curse than gift. People shun her and make her feel like a freak because of her abilities, and because of the fear of how someone will react she doesn’t share her secret with just anyone.
Creighton has a secret too…he’s the leader of a pack of bear shifters. No one outside the clan knows of their true nature, but when he realizes Paisley can hear his bear’s thoughts he knows he’s in trouble. Of course that doesn’t mean he can help the attraction he feels for her or the obsession he has with making her his.
In A Highlander’s Obsession secrets will be traded, fear will triumph, memories will be taken, hearts are broken, and love will rule.
This is a great shifter romance. The characters are well developed and interesting is their own ways. I love Paisley’s grandmother (she had me laughing from the very first page) and Creighton’s brothers. If it wasn’t for them the story wouldn’t have been near as interesting.
My Favorite Laughable Moments: I have three. All had me laughing out loud and I just cannot choose which I love more.
The not-so-private telepathic conversation between Paisley and Creighton at the dinner table. Ronan and Bryce’s reactions were hilarious!
Creighton and the love potion gone wrong. All those bugs! I have no words to describe how funny that was.
When Paisley repays ‘dumb bitchery with bitchy intelligence’. Gotta love those BDSM books…you never know when the knowledge may come in handy!
