About the book: Aidan Gael is cursed, but strives to keep it hidden from others. He spends his days as a horse rancher and keeps to himself. Even though tormented by his curse, he is reserved and thoughtful.
Maggie O’Connell has turned from an investigative journalist to the tabloid scene because of false accusations. She has heard sightings of a werewolf in Minnesota. With the support of her editor, she travels to the small town and camps out in the woods hoping to glimpse this wolf. When the zipper on her sleeping bag gets stuck and gains a bear’s attention, the famed wolf comes to her rescue.
Later Maggie sees in Aidan’s eyes the same eyes as the wolf. Undaunted by his recluse behavior she pursues him to find out the truth. Will her investigation bring her closer to Aidan and the wolf? Or will his curse doom them both?
Together they will navigate the violence of both nature and man in the pursuit of their destiny.
My thoughts: This is a sweet but spicy paranormal romance. I admired Maggie’s gumption. She is paired nicely with Aidan as her outgoing nature complements his reserved one. When the two come together in the book, it’s tantalizing and makes the reader desire more.
Miss Flade does an excellent job of painting the characters and the world around them. The backstory on Aidan’s curse is intriguing. And one can’t help but cheer Maggie on every time she appears on the page.
The only downside I could find is that Maggie and Aidan’s relationship seems rushed to me. I would have liked a little more foreplay-but that is my opinion. Usually when I read a romance where the main characters get hot and heavy, I begin to lose interest. However, Miss Flade pulls out some surprises that made me want to know what happens next and keep reading. She also has an interesting twist on the traditional werewolf story.
I enjoyed this story and look forward to Becky Flade’s future novels.
