Whoo-wee! Now this a fairy tale where mature women need only apply. April Bostic brings the heat and then some in this paranormal romance filled with erotic scenes and forbidden love between species. Can a human girl fall in love with a wolf? Paige Donovan does. She overcomes her qualms about what might be involved if she allows her half-human lover to claim her. She'll become a part of his pack, a group of inbred mythological wolves who live in the wilderness cut off from modern society and exhibit no inhibitions when it comes to getting naked. Paige quickly realizes that she's in for a lot more than she bargained for, but her love for Riley Gray, ultimately trumps her better judgment.
Throughout the beginning of the novel, Paige flips back and forth when it comes to making a decision. Should she stay or should she go? Her rational mind is telling her to pack it up and head back to Manhattan and live a normal life. But she can't control the impulses of the flesh when she's around Riley. He bears his body to her, as well as his heart. In fact, he can't seem to stay away from her bed, tempting her with what they could become. Ultimately, he lowers her defenses until she can no longer resist his advances. At first, she thinks she's indulging in nothing more than a casual fling, and that she'll be able to walk away from Riley when the time comes. But by enjoying his body, she gets more than physical with him - she lowers the barriers surrounding her heart, making her question what she really wants.
In the second half of the book, the action intensifies as another member of the pack tries to seize Paige from Riley. A bloody battle ensues where there can only be one victor. Riley puts his life on the line in order to save Paige from succumbing to a fate neither of them saw coming. Additional forces come between the couple as Paige's mom intervenes and catastrophic injuries befall both sides. It's only through the intervention of the Norse gods that their course is righted and the possibility of their having a future together is reestablished. The conclusion ultimately straddles both sides of the line as Paige and Riley find a way to balance fantasy with reality. It's a blend sure to satisfy both romance lovers and paranormal fans alike.
