Pages: 368 pages
Genre:  Romance/Historical

Wolf caught the faint scent of cinnabar and roses.

The girl turned her head and stared boldly at him, her cool demeanor at odds with the fire in her look. And then her lips parted, as if she needed more air. A punch of lust hit Wolf’s groin.

There was pure sin in his startling blue eyes.

The moment hung suspended between them, and then expanded as his feral gaze held hers. Stranger? Not to Alanna. He went by the name of Wolf, and he was a legend in these parts, known from San Francisco to Boston as a relentless tracker of lost persons. His quest to find his mother's killer would lead him to Alanna...and his destiny.

In his arms, she would never be lost again…

My Review:

Intro: I have been waiting for Wolf’s book since Celine. I loved him in the first book in the series and could not wait for this one. I always prefer the bad boys. Always.


Heroine: Alanna-I really loved Alanna. In the previous book, I had some trouble with Celine and I spent some time completely frustrated with her but I had none of those troubles with Alanna. She was smart and strong and had a really compelling strength to her.

Hero: Wolf-As I said before, I was so looking forward to Wolf’s book. And he lived up to every one of my expectations. He was a bad boy. He did some things that I not only didn’t agree with but that they made me angry. I wanted to jump into the book and give him a good scold. But I still loved him.

Chemistry: Alanna and Wolf were just a big old bunch of angsty goodness. They had such an amazing connection and I loved them together. There were some parts that were completely gut-wrenching in the best way possible.

Chemistry Rating:

Conclusion: I just loved this book so much. Alanna and Wolf were perfect together and the writing was wonderfully detailed. I fangirl this series. I can’t wait for the next book.

  1. OK, I've got both Celine and Alanna on my wish list at Amazon. Now, since my birthday is the last day of this month, I think I'm going to do a lot of hinting with a few members of my family. heh heh They are, after all, the ones who gifted me with a Kindle a couple of years ago. I think they should make some Kindle donations too, don't you? :-) Thanks for the post today.
