In The Taming of the Wolf, Lydia’s Dare’s latest in their paranormal historical romance series The Westfield Werewolves, the Scottish-born and bred witch Caitrin MacLeod, plagued by a night of wild visions, has stepped into a friend's library in search of respite. Instead, she encounters Lord Dashiel Thorpe, who having a bit of a problem holding his Lycanthropic nature in check thanks to the full moon, bites her, unknowingly claiming her as his lifelong mate. He can’t help it, his father never taught him how to control the beast.
Caitrin wants nothing to do with him, but Dashiel comes to understand that if she doesn’t accept him, his life is doomed. So he does what any self-respecting alpha lycanthrope will, he hounds her all the way to Scotland.
Caitrin isn’t completely put off by the dashing Thorpe, and she can’t seem to stop thinking about him. And besides, Dashiel seems to be the only one who can calm her telepathic intake of all around her, and is the only man whose future she can’t see. But he can be such a boorish Lord sometimes. With a question looming over the safety of one of her coven sisters in her mind, she has other things to worry about than resisting his attempts to woo her, or his offer of marriage.
Can she save her coven sister, accept Dashiel and solve his problems at the same time? You’ll have to read this one to find out. Released by Sourcebooks in November, The Taming of the Wolf by Lydia Dare is available now at your favorite local bookstores, or online at amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com or borders.com.
Now, honestly the colloquial that Cait speaks bugged me, to the point of where I wanted Dash to either shove something in her mouth so she'd have something better to do than talk *eg* or send her for elocution lessons, but all in all, this was *hot* and I can say I thoroughly enjoyed the novel. I want a darned time machines (or whatever it takes) so I can go find me one of these Westfield werewolves....
So, I guess I can give this one four pearls.
If you love Paranormal romances, the Regency era, and Highland settings, this is the book for you. Do check it out.
