A blending of Norse mythology and Werewolves creates the background for this story. Veela Gloriana is cursed to never have love. Any man she loves is cursed to die a tragic and horrible death, so she has spent centuries avoiding love until she met Baldur and of course he dies tragically. This book opens with her trying to avenge his death.
Werewolf Alex is hunting Gloriana for the ring of eternal life, but when he comes upon Gloriana in a pit of Gorgon blood poisoned spikes he throws away everything to save her. Add a shape-shifting witch, a couple of elves-who looked down upon and despised in this society, some backstabbing, some revenge and you have this great novel.
I give this novel 4.5 out of 5 clouds and a chili pepper rating of 4 (mild, but some sexual content).

From the start I was taken with Ms. Winters vivid imagery and imaginative characters. Glorianna is a Veela, a demi-goddess whose kind are driven by their sexual desires with cursed results. Anyone who loves them dies. She's also a shape-shifter who can take the form of a wolf. Baldur, her lover, gives her a powerful ring during the course of their affair. The ring makes the wearer immortal. Vulnerable without the ring, he's murdered. She blames her cure and is bent on avenging his death.
While searching for his murderer, she takes the form of a wolf and falls into a trap set by a werewolf sent to kill her. Alex,the werewolf can't complete the act and saves her. He too carries the burden of guilt for causing his wife, Sophie's, death. Together, he and Glorianna work to destroy the man responsible for the death of Baldur, Sophie, and one of the villains planning on killing Glorianna.
There's a host of interesting characters both good and bad. Curse the Wolf is filled with twists and turns. On more than one occasion, the reader wonders who can poor Glorianna trust? Ms. Winters' backgroung in archaeology adds even more color to an intriguing story. This is the second work I've read by her. The first was a short story called, "The Devil's Angel, which I enjoyed as well. I look forward to more from this author.
