Paige Donovan is an ambitious college graduate who aspires to reach the top of the corporate ladder. She’s climbing fast when given the promotion of a lifetime at a prestigious fashion magazine in New York City. Her bright future comes to an unexpected halt after news of her father’s death. She inherits his old cabin in the Colorado Rockies, and just when she thinks her luck couldn’t get any worse, she has a car accident in the mountains and awakens in the small, remote community of Black River.

Soon, she’s engulfed in the mystical world of Varulv—wolves descended from 13th century Scandinavia and blessed by Norse gods with the ability to appear human. Paige is desperate to return home, but never expects to fall for her rescuer, Riley Gray, a charming young werewolf from England who offers her an alternate future with his pack.

Now, she must choose between the career she’s always wanted and the love she’s always dreamed.

My Thoughts:

I think my daughter who is in love with wolves would simply go gaga over this. I liked the wolf aspect and the fact that April must have really had to do some research with all the information in this. But it’s not overload, it all went with the story very well.

The only thing I didn’t like was the beginning. It was a bit of a bump in the story for me. It’s like an insta love thing and I really feel that people should grow love just a bit more than what was done here. After that, however, the story just flies.

The characters are really interesting. There is so much stuff that Paige (I love that name!!) goes through in the beginning and that’s why she takes a bit of a break and decided to go to the cabin. Totally made sense to me. Even the insta love although with what happens in her love life prior to meeting Riley would definitely make me step back a few paces, but then we wouldn’t have this lovely story between the two of them! I do love an alpha male though. I mean who doesn’t right?!!?

Once I got over the insta love thing I realized I was having fun. It’s easy to read with lots of emotion!
