The rules of Society can be beastly-especially when you're a werewolf and it's that irritating time of the month. Simon Westfield, the Duke of Blackmoor, is rich, powerful, and sinfully handsome, and has spent his entire life creating scandal and mayhem. It doesn't help his wolfish temper at all that Miss Lily Rutledge seems not the least bit afraid of him, and in fact, may be as untamable as he is...
A woman whose charm is stronger than the moon...
When Lily's beloved nephew's behavior becomes inexplicably wild, she turns to Simon, the boy's cousin and guardian, for help. But Simon's idea of assistance is far different than hers, and Lily finds herself ensconced in his house and engaged to the rogue.
They both may have bitten off more than they can chew when each begins to discover the other's darkest secrets...(courtesy of Amazon)
Lydia Dare gives us a new Series - and what better - about werewolves! A Certain Wolfish Charm is the first in the series.
Dare definitely sucked me into this series. Werewolves set in 1800 England - historical paranormal romance. What could be better than that?? Well, Dare tops it, adding the element of fun and giving us a story behind it.
I truly adore when a book has been full of smiles as well as keeps up the steamy lust. As this series begins we have 3 wealthy English men, all with the sultry stories of their past conquests. In this book, we meet Simon, who is a Duke and often forgets what women he has invited where. He's a leader as well as a skirt chaser, but he tries to remain in control of his inner beast. Until, Lily, who is a strong-willed, independent woman who has resolved her self to do the right thing. And she has not tolerance for anyone getting the way of her care for her nephew. Of course, it doesn't help Simon that she is his perfect woman.
Throughout the book, Simon and Lily have quite the quipped conversations. To think back to 1800 England and the 'traditional' male/female roles and then reading this book...let's say I couldn't put it down. Dare has created amazing characters. We have brief commentary on the other 2 brothers, one making a brief appearance. Simon fights the urges of his beast in addition to trying to keep his secret from Lily, but she'll have none of it. In the end, their sex is hot, and the claiming even hotter.
