Today on my blog I have The Howling Heart blog tour. On my stop there is a spotlight, excerpt, review.
Paige Donovan is an ambitious college graduate who aspires to reach the top of the corporate ladder. She’s climbing fast when she's given the promotion of a lifetime at a prestigious fashion magazine in
. 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 New York City Black River.
Soon, she’s engulfed in the mystical world of Varulv--wolves descended from 13th century
Scandinavia and blessed by Norse
gods with the ability to appear human. Paige is desperate to return home, but
she never expects to fall for her rescuer, Riley Gray, a charming young
who offers her an alternate future with his pack. England
Now, she must choose between the career she’s always wanted and the love she’s always dreamed.
“Have you ever made love to a human?” I asked timidly. My ears felt hot, and I looked at him through shy eyes. I hoped I wasn't overstepping the boundary of personal information.
He answered quietly. “No.”
His revelation came as a surprise, but I was still curious. “What about a wolf?” I don’t know why I asked. I knew there was no possible way this extremely attractive man was a virgin.
He hesitated this time. Seconds ticked by before he replied, “Pack law states we can only make love after we claim a mate and the leader recognizes our union.”
His indirect answer caught me off-guard, and I couldn't keep the sarcasm from my words. “You’re not one to follow the rules, so I’ll take that as a yes.”
I looked away and lifted my feet out of the water. With my legs bent, I pressed my knees against my chest and wrapped my arms around them. I thought the conversation was over, but Riley was determined to have my attention. His fingers grasped my chin to turn my head toward him.
“That’s probably the only law I haven’t broken.”
Our gazes locked, and he almost stole my breath, again. “Why? I know abstinence can’t be easy for you.”
His voice was almost a whisper. “Not anymore.”
I noticed his green irises had flecks of amber in them—the same color as his wolf eyes. That’s when I realized our heads had moved closer.
Riley’s warm breath caressed my face, and it smelled of hickory and clove. “I’m not interested in any she-wolves in the pack.”
Not only is this cover gorgeous but the story is so good I finished it one sitting.
Paige is given a promotion but on the day that is suppose to the greatest for her she finds out her dad passed away leaving her the cabin they use to vacation at when she was a kid. Her mom immediately wants her to sell it but Paige goes against it and decides to keep the cabin. Paige decides to go visit the cabin after having dreams about the white wolf pup she saw there when she was a kid.
The book is a little strange at first but quickly turns into a page turner. I enjoyed the story line and Riley is just so sexy. My heart broke for him that he has been howling for his lost love Paige but than she comes back to him after she hears his howling in her dreams. Which change the plans she has set for her life when she realizes they are mates. Will the pack leader allow Riley and Paige to be together? To find out you need to read The Howling Heart.
