"Alpha werewolf meets sassy human"

When the King demands a marriage, in order to spare her younger sister, Emily volunteers to marry a Scottish laird, Talorc Sinclair. Her arrival is less than welcomed and in a spurt of temper at her treatment; she informs Talorc that she'd rather marry a goat than him. Her only friend is the Talorc's sister, Cait, who is 5 months pregnant. While at the loch, the women are kidnapped by Lachlan, laird of the Balmoral clan. Unknown to Emily, both clans are Chrechte (wolf shifters).

Lachlan's mother was not Chrechte; so he thought he understood humans. Because of his parent's mixed match, his brother was born human, not Chrechte and Lachlan feels as laird he should marry a Chrechte female. This spunky human Englishwoman defies his preconceptions and he is finding it impossible to resist temptation.

MOON AWAKENING is a medieval romance with paranormal elements and definitely fiction not historical. Alpha werewolf meets sassy human. The arrogance of Lachlan because he is Chrechte and laird adds humor to the story as he deals with his captive and resists temptation. I enjoyed sassy Emily and the mixed feelings she has as she finds herself attracted to her captor. The romance adds enough steam to the trepidation of the women trying to prevent war between the clans to make this a fulfilling story in many aspects.
