Goodreads Synopsis: 

Drawn together across centuries, will their love be strong enough to defeat an ancient curse?

Colonel Caleb DeCardian was fighting America's Civil War on the side of the Union when a freak shower of ball lightning transported him to the present, along with rival and former friend, Seth Reilly. Adapting to the 21st century is hard enough for the colonel, but he also has to find Seth, who cursed him to life as a werewolf.  The last thing on Caleb's mind is romance. Then fetching Arianna Hart nearly runs him down with her car.  He can't deny his attraction to the outspoken school teacher, but knows he should forget her.

Arianna finds Caleb bewildering, yet intriguing: courtly manners, smoldering sensuality and eyes that glow silver at night? When she sees Civil War photographs featuring a Union officer who looks exactly like Caleb, she begins to understand the man she is falling in love with harbors multiple secrets--some of which threaten the possibility of their happiness.

Finding a decent guy who'll commit is hard enough. How can she expect Caleb to forsake his own century to be with her.

My Review: 

I absolutely LOVED this book!  Mae Clair is a wonderful writer.  Her description of the scenery and characters brought to live the story in such vivid detail I could not stop reading.  The characters in Weathering Rock were well developed and felt real.  Clair's writing allowed me to feel an emotional connection to each character.  The emotional connection is what makes a good book, an exceptional book.  Of course, Weathering Rock is an exceptional read.  

Caleb, a civil war hero...Wow...what an amazing leading man? I loved seeing him struggle with his old fashioned beliefs in the 21st century.  Arianna, a passionate history teacher, still looking for the love of her life.  They really were made for each other.  After falling in love with Caleb, she discovers his secret time traveling by researching his family.  I enjoyed the fact that some of her research was not disclosed to the reader immediately.  It made the story even more intriguing because I kept turning each paging hoping the next page would provide me with all the answers.  Without giving away any spoilers, I must admit I was blown away by the discovery of certain relative.  All the supporting characters were excellent from Arianna's best friend to Caleb's relatives.  Now the ending...I had such an intense emotional reaction, I actually cried tears of happiness and tears of sadness for all the characters.  

I highly recommend everyone read Weathering Rock.  It was amazing! My rating is 5 STARS!!!
