Paige Donovan is an ambitious college graduate who aspires to reach the top of the corporate ladder. She’s climbing fast when given the promotion of a lifetime at a prestigious fashion magazine in New York City. Her bright future comes to an unexpected halt after news of her father’s death. She inherits his old cabin in the Colorado Rockies and just when she thinks her luck couldn’t get any worse, she has a car accident in the mountains and awakens in the small, remote community of Black River.
Soon she’s engulfed in the mystical world of Varulv—wolves descended from 12th century Scandinavia and blessed by Norse gods with the ability to appear human. Paige is desperate to return home, but never expects to fall for her rescuer, Riley Gray, a charming young werewolf from England who offers her an alternate future with his pack.
Now she must choose between the career she’s always wanted and the love she’s always dreamed.
My body protested from the exertion. Pain shot through my back and legs, but I ignored it. I had no idea where I would go. I just knew I had to find other people. I heard Riley yell my name and turned my head to see him running after me.
A scream of horror came from my throat, as if a wolf was chasing me. “Help! Someone help me!”
I heard Riley gaining on me, his footsteps hard and swift against the ground. I tried to scream again, but my voice cut off when something hoisted me into the air. It grabbed me and knocked the wind out of my lungs. I looked down at the grass, and it was a blur of green. My body bounced, and I realized I was upside down. Riley carried me over his shoulder while he ran.
In less than a minute, he dropped me onto the sofa in their living room. I felt disoriented and dizzy. I blinked rapidly to get my vision in focus. The twins stood in front of me, Riley breathing hard and Quinn just watching me. Her eyes were back to their human color, but I saw distress behind them. The deep scratches on Riley’s face had already healed, revealing his smooth skin. That is not normal.
Paranormal romance is not my favorite sub genre to read. So please forgive me if I get something wrong in my review. This is one of my step-outside of my comfort box reads. I try to read one book a month that step outside of my normal reading.
Okay, I admit I am not a fan of paranormal. I must have read too much in my younger years. When ask if I would read this I said yes because it would help fill my personal goal.
This would not be what I would call a forced read. The first few chapters grabbed me and help my attention. I enjoyed the different take Bostic but in for wolves with some mythology.
This ended up being an enjoyable read for me. I recommend to anyone who enjoys paranormal.
Thanks for an interesting read April
The bunnies and I give this book carrots.
