Bride McTierney has had it with men. They’re cheap, self-centered, and never love her for who she is. But though she prides herself on being independent, deep down she still yearns for a knight in shining armor.
She just never expected her knight in shining armor to have a shiny coat of fur. . .
Deadly and tortured, Vane Kattalakis isn’t what he seems. Most women lament that their boyfriends are dogs. In Bride’s case, hers is a wolf. A Were-Hunter wolf. Wanted dead by his enemies, Vane isn’t looking for a mate. But the Fates have marked Bride as his. Now he has three weeks to either convince Bride that the supernatural is real or he will spend the rest of his life neutered–something no self-respecting wolf can accept. . .
But how does a wolf convince a human to trust him with her life when his enemies are out to end his? In the world of the Were-Hunters, it really is dog-eat-dog. And only one alpha male can win.
I loved this book when it first came out. Loved it.
After a reread… meh. I was annoyed with Bride and her “What does he see in me?” I mean, yeah I can understand it at first, but after while it was just enough already. Some of the dialogue I found kind of cheesy.
I don’t know if I found the book meh because of the reading funk I’m in or if the book was meh to begin with and I was just in my Sherrilyn Kenyon can write no wrong phase.
But I still love Vane and how sweet and loving he was to Bride. I still loved how he wasn’t sure how to court Bride and asked Nick for advice.
Jessica Fox wasn’t always the beautiful, composed young woman who is the toast of the London ton. Born in poverty, Jessica wandered the streets until fate found her a guardian in the aging Marquess of Belmore. Now, it is fate she tempts with her longing for the Marquess’s son, the arrogant and handsome Captain Mathew Seaton.
Upon his return from the sea, Matthew is forced to confront the sensuous beauty he believes has set her sights on the Belmore title. Though his mind tells him to beware, his blood boils with thoughts of luring her into his bed. To win his love, Jessica will do anything. But when desire flames and the dark shadow of her childhood lengthens, she risks everything she has dreamed of in a dangerous dance of denial.
What is up with these leading ladies who think by running away she’s doing everyone a favor? Ugh.
What happened: Matthew was engaged to Caroline Winston but hungered for Jessie. At Jessie’s wedding, right when she’s about to say “I do”, Matthew turns up, drunk, carries Jessie over his shoulder out of the church while saying “mine.” Of course, they have to get married to avoid scandal. I did kind of laugh when Matthew passed out on top of poor Jessie before anything happened.
Caroline, however, isn’t too happy. She vows revenge and has a bow street runner dig up Jessie’s past and expose her. Once Jessie finds out every one knows the truth( Matthew had already known) she runs away. At least this time it wasn’t for a year. It was only for a few days or so.
Other than that, the story was ok. So far, Kat Martin’s books have been ok. Nothing great but nothing horrible either.
