"A wolf and a witch can make beautiful magic together..."
Deja Hamilton was an employee at the firm which Lincoln
McCabe owned with his brother Cyril. It was a little
strange finding his injured body floating in the water,
shifting from wolf form to human. It was even stranger how
quickly he healed from his gunshot wound. Suddenly
confronted by the fact that she was harboring a gorgeous
werewolf someone else wanted dead, she only knew she wanted
him. It didn't help that he kept calling her by his
deceased wife's name, and developed a bad case of amnesia.
Somebody shot Lincoln McCabe, then chased him to a cliff,
where he jumped to save his life. He is rescued by a
beautiful witch, then realizes he can't remember who tried
to kill him. That puts them both at great risk until the
mystery is solved. Lincoln knows he wants Deja with a kind
of heat he hasn't felt in a long time. How can he convince
her he has feelings that go beyond her amazing resemblance
to his dead wife when they are both in mortal danger?
This is a quick-paced and suspenseful read that held me
until the last word. The characters are believable and
appealing. The combination of shapeshifters, witches and
attempted murders keeps it interesting. The level of
tension keeps you wanting more. Gracie McKeever knows how
to keep the action tight, the love scenes steamy, and the
dialogue intriguing. The scenes where psychic powers are
being used, and the way she describes the action are a true
highlight of the story. The Wolf in the Mansion may be
short in length, but it's strong on entertainment.
