Summary from publisher:

Regency England has gone to the wolves!

He could never lose control...

Dashiel Thorpe, Earl of Brimsworth, has spent his life fighting the wolf within him. But when the full moon rises, Dash is helpless. A chance encounter with Caitrin Macleod on a moonlit night inadvertently binds the two together irrevocably, and Dash's impulsiveness plunges them both into a nightmare...

She never saw him coming...

Caitrin Macleod is no quiet country lass, but a witch with remarkable abilities. But when it comes to Dashiel, she's as helpless to fight his true nature as he is. Her senses overwhelmed, she runs back to the safety and security of her native Scotland...

But Dashiel is determined to follow her-she's the only woman who can free him from a fate worse than death. And Caitrin will ultimately have to decide whether she's running from danger, or true love...

 My Review:
This is one series that I have followed from the beginning that has not disappointed me at all. I have loved this series from the first book to the latest. I must admit that when I picked up this book I was a bit disappointed that it was about Caitrin and Dashiel. They were two of my least favorite characters form the previous books and I was not looking forward to their story. But...I was very happy to be wrong.

 I could not stand Caitrin in Tall, Dark and Wolfish. She was just so willful and obnoxious. I also could not stand Dashiel in the last book- title-but I don't think we were supposed, after all, he was the bad guy in The Wolf Next Door. I was surprised at how much my opinion of these characters changed. I came to love the both of them as individuals and as a couple. They had really amazing chemistry and brought out the vulnerability in each other.

This is one of my favorite shapeshifter series out there. The stories are always amazing, the heroes a bit rakish but tamable nonetheless, the heroines are sharp and spunky and the writing is spectacular. If you are looking for a paranormal romance series that is good from beginning to end. I can't wait for Lydia Dare's next series and, hopefully, for more of this series.
