"Highland werewolf romance of love and deception. Highly recommended!"
Unbeknownst to Abigail, she has been betrothed to Talorc,
the werewolf leader of the Sinclair Clan. Abigail must
take the place of her sister, who did not marry Talorc, but
chose the leader of another clan instead. Although she
wants to get away from her abusive mother, she is afraid of
Talorc and what will happen to her when his clan discovers
her secret: she is deaf. Most of the English find her
deafness a sign of demon possession. Even though she hides
it well, she is considered unfit as a bride for most
English marriages. Hence, she has been promised to the
Talorc is not happy about being forced into marriage. The
previous attempt by his king to marry him off turned
disastrous. When he meets Abigail, he immediately feels
the need to protect her and soon a strong bond is formed
between them. Unfortunately, he does not believe he can
trust her with his deepest secret: he is a werewolf.
Can their relationship survive their deceit? Will their
budding love be enough to keep them together?
First things first, I loved this book! Abigail is a lovely
character, full of strength and delicacy. She is
continually faced with adversity, but holds her head high
with confidence. When meeting Talorc, she needs all the
confidence she has as he is staggeringly handsome, but
scary. On the other, Talorc is definitely the alpha male.
His affection for Abigail is very sweet and soon enough he
falls hard for Abigail.
As well as having strong, likable characters, the pacing of
Moon Craving is well done. The story pushes towards
resolution with few, if any, slow parts. My only complaint
is I wanted Abigail to be more upset with Talorc when she
discovers he is a werewolf. But, Abigail handles the
situation in a fashion that is consistent with her
character. Therefore, this complaint is minimal and does
not take away from the overall story.
As I said before and will say again: I loved this book!
The central plot of the relationship between Talorc and
Abigail is thoroughly enjoyable and more than enough to
fill the pages of a book. I highly recommend Moon
Craving and eagerly look forward to future stories in
