Bearing It All by Vonnie Davis
Series: Highlander's Beloved #3
Genres: Paranormal Romance

A Scottish hunter and a French secret agent find themselves on a collision course with danger—and irresistible desire—in Vonnie Davis’s new bear-shifting Highlander novel, perfect for fans of Jennifer Ashley and Shelly Laurenston.

In the pine-dense mountains of the Scottish Highlands, shape-shifter Ronan Matheson is running free when a desperate woman parachutes out of the sky, directly onto his furry, powerful chest. Instead of clawing her to death, Ronan’s inner bear longs to keep her safe. Once he’s back in human form, Ronan is amused by the mysterious beauty’s fearless attitude—and tempted by her expertly toned physique. But what could she possibly be doing in this isolated stretch of the Highlands?

French intelligence agent Anisa Brosseau never imagined she’d be on the CIA’s bad side—until she’s framed for treason and forced to flee in a stolen drone. Hiding out in a remote cabin, Anisa just needs some time to clear her name. What she doesn’t need is a brooding, muscle-bound Scot in a skimpy kilt to drive her crazy with lust. But when Anisa’s enemies come knocking on his door, Ronan calls on a secret weapon to protect his turf and the bonny lass he’s come to love.

This has been the one series that I really love! I told you over the course of the last few days that it is actually the series that got me to enjoy Shifters. Prior to this particular series I hated those sort of books, actually I hated all the paranormal stuff but not now. Ronan is the brother who enjoys spending time on his own and Effie told him not to make fun of her in the last book when he said that if was to get a woman she would have to fall out of the sky. Well she does and he just knows that Effie has had a hand in this. He knew Anisa before when he went to Paris to study and he was sweet on her then but now he’s panting after her. Well his bear is at least. I LOVE his bear!!! He is so very child-like and provides plenty of funny moments throughout the book. His idea of birth control is hilarious!

The bear aside Ronan truly does care for Anisa and she does him. The things they have to go through only goes to show that the Mattheson brothers go all in when they meet their woman. Anisa could easily kick Ronan’s hide and early on she does but she just connects with him and his bear. Once again Vonnie Davis has created a story that is not full of love but plenty of hot sex and family moments that go beyond the normal. This is a family that loves one another and stands beside each other. Even when Effie is giving them a hard time! I am so sad to see this series end and hope that maybe in the future a certain cousin gets his own story!



Ronan gaped at her as she closed the bathroom door. Me God, she was a cautious somebody. He hadna given her any reason to fear him. What had her in a major self-protection mode? Just what the bloody hell was going on in her life? What the feckin’ hell had happened to her that had her mistrusting everyone and anything? She hadna been like that when they knew each other in Paris.
She’s ours. We’ll protect her.
Ronan opened the cabinet in his room where he kept his shoe care kit. “She is not ours and it is not our bloody job to protect her. I’ll give her a meal and a warm place to sleep tonight.”
With us. She is too ours!
God, Ronan could almost hear his bear stomp his furry foot.
Ronan’s eldest brother’s bear was a little on the timid side at times. His youngest brother’s was bossy as hell. But Ronan’s bear could go from playful to stubborn in a heartbeat. “Dinna get in one of yer snits. I’m not looking fer a woman. Ye ken that.”
Ronan slid the stool to his big chair over in front of the hearth and sat. He quickly dipped her boots in the water then began brushing away the muck and mud. Using his shoe brush, he cleaned her boots as best he could. All the while, he wondered how she, of all people, ended up here, of all places? Effie. The witch had to have had a gnarled, pink-polished fingernail in this weird situation. He nodded as he set the cleaned boots on the other side of the burning fire. Coincidences like this didna just happen. They were arranged. And Effie was the Queen Witch at arranging things. He did a quick rinse of her socks and flight suit, removing her badge before he shoved the outfit into the dirty water.
She hadna lied about her being in the military, but she had failed to mention she was Major Anisa Brosseau of the French DPSD, whatever the hell that was. The card held no reference of the CIA, so why had she even mentioned it after she fell on his bear? He glanced at the bathroom door—the shower running behind it—and scowled. Just what kind of business were she and the French government up to here in an isolated part of the Scottish Highlands? And what did she mean when she mentioned going against everything she believed in?
Canna ye see? She’s scared outta her wits. She’s running from someone or something. And so are ye. Ye’re running from yer secret desire fer yer own family. We need to take care of her. She dropped from the sky just fer us. She’s our mate, ye obstinate human. Ours!
Living with this bear since he’d begun shifting when he was ten, Ronan kent there was no use arguing when it got into a challenging mood like this. How could Ronan have an attraction to a woman he hadna seen in years and wasna so sure he trusted? That was more Creighton’s style. Hadna his eldest brother fallen for the American animal communicator as soon as she arrived at the lodge?

  1. If I made you enjoy shifters, I’m humbled. I’ll share a secret. I never liked them either until one appeared to me in a dream as a bear, shifted into this kilt-wearing mass of hunkiness, and told me a tale of Vikings and longships and caves along the Scottish Highland coast. He wanted his story told. I wasn’t happy about it, believe me, for what did I know about shifters? Nothing. So I wrote them my way, no doubt breaking a lot of paranormal rules along the way. Shall we call it dumb luck? Thank you for a lovely review. You’ve made my day.

    • You did make me enjoy them! Prior to reading A Highlander’s Obsession I steered clear of shifter books all together. There was just something about Creighton that I loved and then I went on to fall in love with Bryce and Ronan. If you broke rules then let me tell you that you broke them in the best possible way!
