4 Out Of 5 Stars
Weston Hadley has been in love with Lady Madeline Hayburn from the moment he met her. But he never got to close because, he thought he was really beneath her by not having a title, a high status, or money. So he loved her afar believing that was good enough until a twist of fate had Madeline discovering one of secrets that changed everything…
During a house party that Madeline’s father threw to help her find a husband, Madeline goes in search of Weston to get him to tell her information about one of her suitors, when she spots him by the stables. As she goes out to meet him she waits by the door, when he walks out naked in the light of the full moon she witnesses him changing into a wolf… After that everything changes and she finds herself abducted and on her way to Gretna Green to be married…
I really liked Weston’s character. I liked how he was in love with Madeline from the moment he met her and only wanted her to be happy, because he never thought he had a chance with her. I liked how he tried his best to make sure she was taken care of and how he made sure she was safe. He showed respect and remorse for his actions.
Madeline’s character was different. You can tell she was raised really strictly and never had one hair out of place. I liked how during the journey to Gretna Green she starts to grow. When she jumps to a conclusion and makes a mistake in leaving, you read how she learns from that mistake and tries her hardest to make it right.
This is the first back I have read of Lydia Dare’s Wolf series. So I have probably read them out of order, but it doesn’t effect the story at all. When some of the other characters were mentioned I did want to read their stories. Especially Weston’s single brothers. I am curious what kind of lady will bring them to the knees and curious to see if one them has met there match in this book as well. So I am looking forward in reading more books in the series.
There were somethings that happened during the book that were never discussed or resolved in my opinion. I did wish that some of the issues were brought to light and discussed, but in no way harmed Weston’s and Madeline’s story.
