REVIEW

"Delightful Story!"

Dashiel (Dash) Thorpe has never felt good in his own skinó his wolf skin that is. His mother died at childbirth and his father never accepted him, blaming Dash for his mother's death. Though Dash is an Earl, he doesn't take the responsibility seriously and women are no more than a conquest for him to bed.

Catrin (Cait) Macleod is a witch with an amazing ability to read people's futures. Only the gift can leave her daunted at times. She craves a quiet life, but a chance encounter with Dashiel sets her life on a different course. Arrogant and bossy, she wants nothing to do with Dash Thorpe, or so she claims. In his arms, she finds the peace and quiet, a strange occurrence she's never experienced with anyone.

Dash is determined to make Cait his wife, but Cait will not have it. Dash is not used to having his desires denied. Cait has always seen the future, but not with Dash. How can she be with him if she doesn't know how it will all turn out?

Ms. Dare has written an entertaining, light read into the paranormal world of witches and werewolves. I loved the witty banter between Cait and Dash. They were truly meant for each other.

The only thing that rang false with me was the interaction with Dash and his father. For a lifetime of hatred and mistrust, their time together seemed rushed and a little unrealistic. (I can't say more because I don't want to give anything away.) However, this minor detail in no way overshadows the delightful story. I look forward to reading the other stories in this series.

This is the first book I've read by Lydia Dare. Characters are mentioned from previous books, but I had no trouble reading this book as a stand alone tale.

SUMMARY

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...
