I think what originally drew me to this series was the many references to the horses. At heart, I’m still that young girl who loves horses. After starting the first book, it was like eating peanuts, I just couldn’t stop!Reluctant Retiree
Following his King’s orders means abandoning his newfound love.
Wolfram Gunn McKay is a renounced warrior and not happy at all to be sent by his King on an errand to locate a child, much less to have to go to the most northern, isolated, dismal, and windy, part of the Highlands.
That place is home for the redhead beauty Swannoc McKinnon,who is living a harsh life there. She is struggling daily to take care of the few children and women left after the devastating second Clearance that burned Brough Castle and made it almost unlivable.
Swannoc decides to gather the children and women and head to Fionnaghall as soldiers are coming back again and again, and it seems they are looking for something… or someone.
On their way, Swannoc’s group encounters Wolfram, and he decides to go out of his way as he cannot leave the beautiful woman and her group of children alone.
Soon Wolfram will discover that among the children Swannoc protects, hides the Kings’ most valuable secret, the child Wolfram is looking for!
Those that would use the boy to destroy the King are now closing in and Wolfram will have to take a tough choice as there is not enough time to complete the orders and at the same time save his newfound love!

Kindle Reader 5.0 out of 5 stars I love this extension of the Ross series- now it's the ladies of Brough Castle! More please!!!! Reviewed in the United States on March 5, 2020 Verified Purchase Oh, my goodness this was such a great read. I love the tone of these books- similar to the Ross sisters- and they make an appearance in this one too, which I loved! Great scene setting, exceptionally fun characters that you don't want to say goodbye too. At times you will laugh, (Swan sings when she is afraid) then you will sigh with happiness, then get into the action of a battle with these strong women who don't even have proper weapons! In the end a lovely, sweet romance with a worthy hero and heroine. Interesting setting around the tip of Scotland with all the bogs. Loved the big black horses in this one, and their names-Dummy, Inch and Teeth! I love how she includes horses, what girl doesn't love horses! Loved the burping dog Beans and the children who helped and cheered on Swan. Fascinating to read how Wolf who was fiercely loyal to his king and the errand the king sent him on, fell in love with Swan and the children and chose love in the end. I can't wait to read about Kaithria and Neely, and hope Cat McKay has a story too. I just love these and want more in this style! They aren't dark, they are happy, and empowering and loving, adding some humor here and there, and filled with action and strong friendships and horses and always a wonderful romance with a hero to sigh over. I have read some of the others by Alisa and didn't care for them, but the Ross sisters and now the ladies of Brough are far and above my favorites. I wish they came in hard copy. I like to keep a hard copy version of my favorite books- Judith McNaught, Julie Garwood and now the Ross sister series extending into this one! Love Love Love. I read this in one sitting as I couldn't put it down! MORE PLEASE!!!!!!

While trying to move them to a safer place wolfram meets up with the and discovers the child he was sent to save is among Swans group. Can he save them all and complete his mission. I guess you’ll need to read this book to find out. I really enjoy this authors books I’m always happy when a new one comes out.
Debbie 5.0 out of 5 stars Highlander's Fierce Wolf by Alisa Adams Reviewed in the United States on August 2, 2020 Verified Purchase I read the series out of order, so I had heard about Wolf and Swan. Their love story did not disappoint. Both were strong characters, given witty dialogue by Ms. Adams. I smiled a lot and really enjoyed the romp through the bogs and desolate northern Scotland. The supporting characters were equally well developed. I didn't care for Neely at first thinking for not helping. It amused me that her horse, Teeth, kept nipping at her hair and clothing. It wasn't until I read "Highlander's Heart of Steel", that I understood her better. As Swan leads the 3 women, 6 orphans and an old man to safety with only a pest cutter and a wolf hound for defense, there is adventure, friendship, danger, and of course romance. Will Wolf decide love is more important than following the Kong's orders.
