Penny Harding’s life is a hot mess.
When she drives into a wild Winter Pass snow storm, she’s trying to outrun her problems…. Little does she know she’s running straight into a much bigger and sexier kind of trouble.
The moment alpha male Harlan Craig finds a beautiful redhead lying in a snowbank, he rescues her without a thought for the consequences. Yeah, he’s saved her from freezing to death, but now she’s snowbound with a bunch of lonely werewolves during the first night of the full moon… the time when Harlan’s wolf takes over, and the wolf needs Penny.
Even with werewolf hunters stalking their every move, Harlan and Penny can’t seem to resist each other, their desire catching and burning high during the full moon. While Harlan struggles with the beast within, Penny will have to make a choice…
Run for her life, or join the Winter Pass Wolves forever?
I took part in Amelie Hunt’s Arc Wave promo. Whoever signed up was given (for an honest review) five series of three books each of ARC’s from five different authors to read and review by October 9th. These are all novellas and I was a little stumped on how I was going to do up the reviews, but decided to break them into five posts with each having all three books by the same author.
So let’s get started!
Howl is book #1 in the Winter Pass Wolves series by Vivian Wood.
I have not had the pleasure of reading Vivian Wood before this week and I must say… where the hell have I been? I like shifters! I particularly like werewolves and hot sexy men! This isn’t her only series soooo….. WTF? Why haven’t I heard of her before? I really hate not knowing these things! So, I went and downloaded a few more of her books from her other series and once I get a few more books read that I’ve put aside for this little ARC adventure I’m going to get down to some more wolfy business!
I knew within the first few sentences that this was going to be a good one. It was the way it was written and how it flowed that captured me instantly. This was great! The story took off from the very first paragraph and I devoured this first book in an hour! Vivian Wood’s style of writing is really easy to melt into the world she created and you can’t help but tag right along with the characters until the very last word. I really enjoyed this one!
My only issue and it isn’t much is that… I was left with a couple of questions from somewhere in the middle of the story and was expecting things to be answered by the end of the book, but they weren’t. I’m hoping that they come with the next two books, but if they don’t… then I’ll come up with my own scenarios. It certainly isn’t enough to deter me from reading more of her books. I’m already a fan!
In A Nutshell:
I loved it and I can’t wait for the other two ARCs!
