Lovely Paranormal Romance with Creative and Interesting Werewolf Mythos
Grey’s life changes forever the night he saves Morgan and her niece from a werewolf. The wolf bites him and leaves him for dead. Only he doesn’t die, he changes into- not only a werewolf- but the dominant wolf of them all. Without any friends to help him, he lives a lonely life until the werewolves find him. But, he doesn’t feel complete until he finds Morgan and has to have her for himself.
This is such a beautifully told romance. I loved the way Grey watches Morgan, afraid for her safety, then rescues her when she needs it the most. It reminded me of Untamed Heart- one of the best romance movies from my childhood. But, the story doesn’t end there. Since Grey’s a werewolf, he wrestles with the dangers of exposing himself to Morgan, having a relationship with her, and bringing her to meet the clan. Morgan loves him so much, she’s willing to take the risk.
What I loved about this story is the thought-provoking take on werewolves. I loved how Grey had his own personality, and then that of the wolf inside him. It was interesting to see how the dual personalities were at odds with one another. The wolves were so real to me because of Ms. Shanley’s brilliant descriptions of their instincts and their hierarchy. I loved the mythos behind how the wolves evolved over time and how they live with humanity today. There’s a wonderful twist toward the end- which I won’t give away here- which ties it all in very nicely. I almost wanted to be a wolf myself!
