Lexi James is on the run from her domineering family when her car breaks down in the middle of nowhere.   She goes for help at a local pub and meets Kameron Conroy.  The couple is attacked by an enemy werewolf and spend the evening together.  Lexi is forced to flee again without saying goodbye, leaving Kameron behind, struggling with his demons. 

Five years later, Lexi and Kameron meet again at a wedding, tumbling into yet another passionate encounter.  This time Lexi is working as the town librarian while the past stalks her.  Kameron is injured while defending Lexi, leaving him trapped inside his own mind.   It will take Lexiís love and the packís combined efforts to save his life.

Tartan Mind is a truckload of revelations, intrigue and dark secrets.  This fourth installment offered more info about the Scottish werewolves and Altairís (Iainís father) pack.  The emotional intensity and heat factor matches Tartan Surprise, but thereís more of a sinister presence.  The narrative rings gothic; shadows from Lexi and Kameronís pasts haunt them like vengeful ghosts.  For me, it lends a starkness to the plot that dramatically shifts the reader away from the more humorous overtones (Katherine and Iainís constant love play) to the corruption Lexi and Kameron have been exposed to.  It will be very interesting to see where Ms. Illyria takes the series next because in Tartan Mind, there are certainly strong elements of suspense and danger flavoring the story.
