Some call Cairstine one of the dark fae. She holds the ability to morph and can shift into any creature she desires, whether shrinking to the size of a bat, extending to the width of a dragon, or anything in between. She hasn’t walked in daylight since her childhood years, has taken her nourishment by feeding from her immortal sisters, but as one of the ancient fae, it’s now time for her to come up against her greatest adversary. Her fated mate.

Liam is his clan’s doctor, a warrior shifter of immense strength, and when Cairstine arrives from the year 1211 into his twenty-first century time, he’s riveted by her. She holds one of the rarest of their people’s fae abilities and her immortal soul needs healing. Her desire to embrace the dark is drawing her deeper and deeper into despair and now he is left with no choice. He needs to bring his mate’s soul back into the light, or else she’ll destroy them both.

New York Times Bestselling Author Joanne Wadsworth brings you another bestselling Highlander time travel series blending the world of the faerie with the Clan Matheson bear shifters. Readers are loving it!

He seeks the one his heart desires…

With their fae-blooded clan teetering on the verge of extinction, Jamie Matheson finds himself battling a deep attraction to one of the few remaining unmated women within his clan, a woman he’s not permitted to touch unless a soul bond forms between them. Like his fellow clansmen, he must ensure her protection, even if that means from himself.

Annabella wishes to forge a mated bond with only one man, yet when Jamie treks deep into the Highlands in order to put some distance between them, she soon discovers not all is as it seems, not when her very spirit calls out to Jamie’s from across the ages. It appears they’ve both lived in two separate times, here in the future and far in the past, and now if they ever wish to complete the bond and come together as one, they must first right the wrongs of their deadly past. It’s time to return to when they first discovered their mated bond began, the year 1211.

Come and immerse yourself in this riveting historical time travel romance, one which crosses the centuries and brings together lost souls.

Each book in this series is standalone, and can be enjoyed out of sequence.


Highlander's Desire CoverThere can be only one…for both of them.

In the twelfth century, a man named Gilleoin was gifted with the ability to shift into a bear. His clan was called Matheson, and when he mated with a woman carrying faerie blood, they created a line shrouded in secrecy, yet still, far into the future, whispers would abound…

For five long years, Isla Matheson has run from the one man her fae ancestor prophesized would be hers, but now her time for running is done. Her shifter mate is closing in and when he captures her and takes her home to his clan, she can no longer deny either of them. She chooses to merge with him in all ways, and in doing so sets a twelfth century prophecy in motion, one that sends her hurtling back through time to when their clan first began.

Highland warrior shifter Iain Matheson has fallen under his mate’s spell. She’s the one woman he would die to protect, and when a portal opens and takes her from him, he dives in after her. He’ll never allow her to escape him, not even when he becomes embroiled in one of the greatest feuds raging at that time.

Now they have a mission, to save their future line from extinction, to give hope to their people, both in the future and the past.

Publisher’s Description:

A fiercely loyal lady, along with her brooding duke come head-to-head in a battle of wills! An unforgettable Regency romance from New York Times Bestselling Author Joanne Wadsworth.

He must steal a lady…then steal her love.

Desiring a man and never being noticed as more than his best friend’s little sister has Lady Ellie Trentbury finally consigning herself to the truth. She must move on, and preferably with a man who lives far away from her home in London where she need never be reminded of the duke who stole her heart. An elopement with an honorable American shipping merchant sounds perfect.

The Duke of Ashten has no choice but to bound into his best friend’s carriage when he discovers little Ellie is inside and intent on eloping with a man to Gretna Green who she barely knows. He can’t allow her to make such a terrible mistake, yet convincing her might mean giving into his desire for the golden-eyed enchantress who has followed him around since he was a lad.

Her pouty lips and bountiful charms can no longer be ignored, only convincing her of the truth of his intentions will mean jeopardizing both his sanity and a lifelong friendship as well.

My Thoughts:

This is book #1 in Joanne Wadsworth’s new series”Regency Brides”.

This tale of a tag along little sister all grown up and her brother’s best friend is an unforgettable story of what is thought to be unrequited love on both the hero and heroines parts.

Ellie has loved Ashten as long as she can remember. Ashten has long since forgotten about how he thought of Ellie as his friends pesky little sister. She has grown into a beautiful and very desirable young woman. Now he must stop her from making a grave error. She is running away to marry a man she barely knows. Abducting her on her way to Gretna Green is the only way Ashten sees to stop her from making the biggest mistake of her life. After all he wants her for his own even if he will never admit it.
I liked this book but it is not the best I have read by this author.
I gave this tale 4 of 5 stars for storyline and character development and a sensual rating of 2 of 5 flames. This is an essentially sweet/ clean traditional regency romance.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
