#BookReview – “Her Scottish Alpha” by Tabitha Conall


Blurb

A dragon slayer, an alpha werewolf and a war.

Dragon slayer Keira Harlow is on a job when everything goes wrong. Her twin sister and partner disappears and worse, Keira herself gets nabbed by a werewolf who turns her on in a most disturbing way.

Deep in negotiations with a dragon shifter, Scottish and UK Alpha Lachlan MacPherson doesn't expect his mate to barge into his home uninvited but when she does, there's no way he'll let her go.

While searching for Keira's sister, a bigger problem arises--the English Alpha wants the position of UK Alpha which Lachlan holds by right of birth and he's not above going to war to get it. If that weren't enough, Keira has to find a way to get herself out of the situation with Lachlan. He might think they're mates but she knows it can never be. 

Review 

In the third book of the Colliding Worlds series, Lachlan meets Kiera, a beautiful dragon slayer who wants nothing to do with him. She and her twin sister, Gillian, break into his stronghold to nab Damon, a dragon and one of Lachlan’s tentative allies, but Damon flees into the night. Gillian follows, but Lachlan stops Kiera and tries his hardest to convince her they’re mates.
He’s a werewolf, the alpha of the Scottish pack and the alpha of all the United Kingdom wolves, and he’s about to go to war with his cousin who’s the alpha of the English pack. Sebastian wants to be the UK Alpha even though the birthright belongs to Lachlan. The war has been brewing since the first book in the series and everything finally comes to a head.
Though Lachlan is smitten with Kiera right away, it takes her longer to trust him. Their relationship slowly blooms but the threat of war drives them closer together. Their friendship and love is very believable, and I really liked both these characters.
The world building is very interesting but a little confusing. Several millenniums ago, the humans on Earth Prime dreamed up various creatures, and those creatures popped into existence on alternate earths in other dimensions. When two earth dimensions grow closer together and start overlapping one another (before they become one), the special people called “world-walkers” can travel between the two worlds. When two dimensions finally collide, they become one earth, and the inhabitants from each earth are stuck together.
The side characters are very interesting. Damon and Gillian’s problems aren’t resolved in this story, and I’m really looking forward to reading their book. The same goes with Sebastian and Greer, Lachlan’s sister. After the bad thing Sebastian did in this story, he and Greer are definitely going to have problems in the future.
The story is well edited and the plots well thought out. Lachlan’s and Kiera’s POV is properly divided between scene and chapter breaks. This is a very good story, and I’d love to read more.
