Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Dare returns to her gentleman werewolves in 1820 Mayfair with a new story arc featuring Weston, Grayson, and Archer Hadley, penniless and ill-behaved younger half-brothers of imposing marquess and Alpha werewolf Dashiel Thorpe (protagonist of The Taming of the Wolf). Lady Madeline Hayburn, bored with dowry-seeking suitors, finds Weston intriguing and follows him on the night of the full moon. When she sees him turn into a wolf, he decides the only way to keep the secret within the family is whisk her off to Scotland in a carriage sent by Dashiel’s prescient wife, Lady Cait, and bed Maddie before her father can catch them. Family politics are full of personality and strong repartee; the bickering between brothers and the kind, determined machinations of Lady Cait are especially amusing. But the awkward abduction turning into a passionate love match fails to convince, and the protagonists’ problems mostly come from their own inconsistent, whiny, and stubborn behavior. Agent: Melissa Jeglinski, the Knight Agency. (Apr.)

Read an Excerpt


Blackmoor House, Mayfair

April 1820

Lady Madeline Hayburn was more than ready for the Season to be over. Ball after ball. Soirees and garden parties after more soirees and even more garden parties. There was no point to it all. Oh, she knew her father was hopeful Maddie would somehow stumble upon her destined husband at one of these inane events. But if it hadn't happened during her three seasons on the marriage mart, Maddie wasn't terribly optimistic it would happen tonight.

"Madeline," whispered her grandmother, the Duchess of Hythe, as she nudged Maddie's arm. "Do you see Blackmoor over there?"

Maddie glanced across the sea of people littering the ballroom until her eyes fell on the intimidating duke. "Yes, of course," she whispered back. What on earth did her grandmother care about the Duke of Blackmoor? He and both of his brothers were married and hardly prospects as far as Maddie was concerned.

"The man was a degenerate," Grandmamma informed her. "One of the worst rogues London has ever seen."

Just idle gossip then? Maddie smiled at her grandmother. "So I've heard."

"His wife should be commended for bringing him to heel." Grandmamma gestured toward the pretty duchess who was still greeting her newly arrived guests at the entrance. "Let that be a lesson to you. The right woman can take charge of even the most imposing man."

Not idle gossip, but another lesson on the management of men. Maddie nearly sighed, but doing so would only earn her another lesson of a different sort. "I can manage Papa," she said instead.

Her grandmother agreed with a nod of her head. "Of course you can. You're my granddaughter."

Maddie giggled.

"And you can manage any other man you set your mind to, as well."

"Thank you for your confidence."

Grandmamma continued as though Maddie hadn't spoken. "I just wish you weren't so finicky about this whole marriage endeavor, my dear. I would like to actually meet my great-grandchildren, you know."

Maddie couldn't help the laugh that escaped her. "In that case, you should probably have this conversation with your grandsons." Who knew how many great-grandchildren her grandmother might already have.

Grandmamma scowled, but before she could begin a lecture, Lieutenant Hawthorne bowed before them in greeting. "Your Grace, Lady Madeline."

"Lieutenant." Maddie smiled with relief. Thank heavens he'd saved her. "I hope you are well this evening."

"I will be better if I can urge you to stand up with me."

And whisk her away from her grandmother? Maddie could have kissed him, if only she liked him a little bit. Alas, she didn't. Besides as the fourth son of a baronet, Lieutenant Hawthorne needed to find a wealthy wife. His interest in Maddie began and ended with her dowry. Still, he was her salvation, if only for a moment. "Thank you, sir. I would be honored."

He offered her his arm and then led her to the middle of the ballroom where sets were being formed for the minuet. As they circled each other, Maddie couldn't help but glance across the crowded room and her breath caught slightly in her throat.

Heavens. What was Weston Hadley doing here? Maddie stumbled and would have fallen if Lieutenant Hawthorne hadn't caught her arm.

"Are you all right?"

Maddie shook her head and tried to regain her composure. "Just clumsy," she muttered. Though her eyes still fell on Mr. Hadley, as if she just couldn't help it. The Duchess of Blackmoor's ball was the last place on earth she would have expected to see a man of his ilk.

Oh, he was born of nobility like everyone else in attendance. And he filled out a coat better than most, even if the coat tended to be a bit on the shabby side. But there was something dark and mysterious about him. And then there was the scar he sported across his cheek.

Lieutenant Hawthorne must have followed her gaze because an expression of amusement settled on his face. "Weston Hadley?"

Maddie straightened her back and stared at her companion as though he was an imbecile. "Hardly." When they turned the opposite direction, she cocked her head to one side. "Are you well acquainted with Mr. Hadley?"

The lieutenant shrugged. "We've met." He glanced over her shoulder and smirked. "Seems he can't keep his eyes off you, either."

And it had been that way ever since she'd met Weston Hadley. She wasn't quite certain what to make of him. She never had been. And whenever their paths crossed, his gaze followed her. "My dowry has that effect on most men."

Lieutenant Hawthorne chuckled. "You do know how to wound a man, Lady Madeline."

She hadn't meant to insult him. "That wasn't my intent at all," she hastened to explain.

"I'm certain it wasn't," he agreed good-naturedly. "But I can understand your concern about him. He's hardly the sort I would imagine has any honorable intentions."

That was an understatement. He was a Hadley, after all. The most degenerate set of brothers of Maddie's acquaintance.

"Do you know how Hadley came by that scar of his?"

"No." But Madeline had wondered about that very thing every time she saw Weston Hadley. "Do you?"

The lieutenant shook his head. "Sadly, no, but there is a bet on the books at White's about it. I would love to know."

"Has he never said?" she asked, even though she shouldn't think about Weston Hadley or his scar. After all, he was one of those penniless Hadley brothers. Even worse, he was a friend of her brothers. That alliance on its own was hardly one to recommend him.

"Never breathed a word about it, as far as I know," the lieutenant muttered just as the music came to an end. He smiled and then bowed. "Ah, here comes your admirer now."

Maddie glanced over her shoulder to see Weston Hadley headed straight for her. His dark eyes raked across her form, sending shivers skittering down her spine. Something about his gaze always left her the tiniest bit breathless.

"Lady Madeline," Mr. Hadley drawled. "What a pleasant surprise."

Before she could think better of her actions, Maddie offered her hand to the rogue. And when he touched his lips to her gloved knuckles, her knees threatened to buckle beneath her weight. Maddie snatched her hand back and stood her tallest, hoping she appeared more poised than she felt.

"Do have a good evening, sir," she said before turning on her heel and heading for a small group of ladies at the very edge of the room.

His eyes were still on her; Maddie could feel them. But she refused to turn around, to acknowledge him any further than she had already done. No, everything would be better if she just kept her distance from Weston Hadley with his penetrating dark eyes and his even darker scar.

    I think this is my favorite Lydia Dare book so far. Ever since her vampire books, I've wondered about the Hadley brothers; and Weston Hadley (the youngest of the twins) did not disappoint. My heart went out to him throughout the book as he pined for Lady Madeline. And Lady Madeline I loved! She's someone who has never had an adventure and a little spoiled, but I wouldn't want to ride across England caked in mud either (so it's hard to blame her for any temper tantrums). The book starts off with their elopement after Madeline sees Weston shift into wolf shape and he needs her to keep his secret; but the marriage is just the beginning to this wonderful wolfish tale.

    Really good

    Good book. The passtion between Wes and Maddie was perfect. It hurt when Wes didn't have confidants in himseldf. I do wish that Lydia Dare had shown more of their time together after they got back together though, it would of helped mend the reads heart a little more. Over all a good read

    A Great Read!

    I really wasn't sure how I was going to like this romance novel because of the whole werewolf/historical romance theme. It's one that I hadn't read before this one but, surprisingly this one was exceptionally entertaining.

    From the first page I was hooked. I guess what surprised me most was that even thought the book is written by a fantastic duo the writing was seamless. Many times I've read a book where there is more than one author and you can see subtle changes in the writing when it switches writers. This time though I honestly couldn't tell that there was more than one author writing.

    This book was full of humour and adventure with a lot of romance though not as many sexy bits as I would have liked. However, that doesn't mean I didn't love the novel which I most certainly did. Maddy's life seems to turn upside down one fateful night when she witnesses the down and out rogue friend of her brother Weston Hadley transform into a wolf.

    After this startling revalation Maddy and Weston head of a a turbulent journey to Gretna Green in Scotland for a quickie marriage to solidify Maddy's silence on the true nature of Hadley. All the while being pursued by Maddy's father, and a rival of Westons.

    Needless to say neither are too pleased about their predicament but I really enjoyed the banter between the two of them. Often times the banter in historical romance novel can be quite...boring but in this case the Maddy and Weston were arguing like normal people without the fluff. Plus the two of them were willing to take jabs at each other and I found myself laughing quite a bit at both their antics.

    I really loved how real the characters were with each other. They had their ups and downs and thank goodness the relationship in the novel between them wasn't a case of the dreaded "Insta-Love" that's plaguing romance novels these days. As much as they fought Maddy and Weston had a chemistry that sort of reminded me of what Mr.Turning The Pages and I have. That's what made me love the book so much I think.

    All in all if you want a humorous historical romance with just a tinge of paranormal I strongly suggest reading this book. While it is part of a series I found that I had no trouble reading this book without having read the others though I do plan on going back and reading them as soon as I'm able. I was just approved for the next book in this series by the lovely people at NetGalley and I can't wait to see where the next book leads. I highly recommend this book to everyone whether you're familiar with the genre or not it's a fun read and in the midst of more serious novels one can't help but relish time to have fun while reading.

    * I received a free copy of this book from the published via NetGalley in exchange for my free and honest review. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are my own and I was not compensated in any way.

    would highly recommend for any paranormal romance fan

    I loved this book. not a typical cookie cutter paranormal romance where you know what's going to happen. You will fall in love with all the charaters in this series and in the series, that has the Westfields that leads into to this one. The writing team, that is "Lydia Dare", I givve you both 2 big thumbs up.

    I truly enjoyed this book. I'd have given it a 4 but it started out a little slow in the beginning. It soon turned into a lively story as it unfolded. Lady Madeline was a wonderful character she seemed so very full of herself and it was a great joy to see she tumble from her pedestal. Weston was a unruly scoundrel and I loved him. Maddie and Wes made a wonderful pair. I laughed and cried through out and I highly recommend this book. This is my first book by Lydia Dare and it won't be my last.

    I felt like I've read this romance plot numerous times before!

    Rating: 3.5

    Madeline detests the house parties her father, the Duke of Hythe, and brothers thrown in her honor, since they all desperately hope she will make a suitable matrimonial match one day. But, to Maddie, no one is as charming and entertaining to talk to like the poor Mr. Hadley who lives on the next estate over. Unfortunately, he is not a man her powerful family would approve of, so Maddie can only enjoy their brief conversation and nothing more. Yet, upon watching Mr. Hadley, from her windowsill one night, easily drag a limp body into the local stables -- Maddie's curiosity is peaked, leading her to investigate the shady situation herself. But, after a fateful discovery, Maddie quickly finds herself on a scandalous escapade to Scotland to tie the knot with the man she least ratty clothing, wild hair, and lacking slippers no less!

    Weston has been a love-sick puppy (literally!) for Madeline since he first saw her. Since "growing up," he has become more of a rascal than an eligible marriage candidate, but that does not stop him when Maddie stumbles upon his more sacred secret and he must now force her hand in matrimony. But, this last-minute trip to Gretna Green does not go as exactly hoped and Wes must now face the harsh truth that he may not be capable of supporting a wife, especially a Duke's daughter accustomed to a certain elaborate lifestyle.

    I thoroughly enjoy this series since it has everything I love in the genre department--paranormal twist, historic events, and budding romance. Unfortunately, this story feel somewhat flat for me due to containing lots of substance with very little uniqueness to the overall tale. For me, it was rather predictable, uneventful, and somewhat dull. I so wanted to lose myself in Wes and Maddie's adventures, but neither could captivate me enough to make this story very praiseworthy.

    Personally, Maddie came off as either too high-maintenance with her surrounding or two submissive about what was happening to her--both annoyingly so! Wes was also lacking that confident strong male presence a book like this needs and was portrayed very young, naive, and somewhat foolhardy. There were certain parts where Wes and Maddie's relationship was sweet and animated, but not enough to make me feel their story was unique in any way! But, give this book a read if you are a fan of the series--you may enjoy it more than I did. I am still curious to see how the other Hadley brother's end up.

    Likes: The Hadley twins were adorable together and quite delightful when they came to each other's aid in such a playful way that only an annoying sibling can!

    Dislikes: This story felt like every other running off to Gretna-Green tale I have ever read. Nothing stood out as new or exciting to me and was actually kind of blah overall. I even found the side characters, Archer Hadley and Sophie Cole, struggle to be more entertaining than the main protagonists -- NOT GOOD!!

    Great Paranormal Romance!

    This was my introduction to the writing of Lydia Dare, who is actually the dynamic writing team of two women who take turns writing parts of each book, and I thoroughly enjoyed it! I have been reading quite a bit of YA books and Christian self-help/parenting books lately and I was in desperate need of a good romance novel, this hit the spot perfectly. This book is technically part of a series, the Westfield Wolves, but it is loosely connected and you do not have to read the books prior to understand this story at all, but be warned, Wolf Who Loved Me is so awesome, you will want to go back and read the others in this series and maybe the vampire ones too.

    I love paranormal and historical fiction books and this romance novel fit all the criteria for a wonderful, quick, and lighthearted read for me. I was so into this book that I got up in the morning, started reading it, and pretty much neglected everything else all day, except getting out food to thaw for dinner, until I finished it. I could not put it down.

    The story is fast paced, has action, regency romance, oh and a super hot guy who turns into a wolf, could it get any better? I think not. There are good guys, a bad guy, and two hot girls, one who is quite proper and one who is, well, not. This just makes for an interesting plot, though it may seem to have been done before, it hasn't. This book takes this plot in a whole new direction, mostly because of the paranormal aspect.

    I don't really want to give away the plot of this book, except to say that after reading it, I can't wait for the books on the other two brothers to come out, I am so in love with this series.

    I was surprised to find out that Lydia Dare was not a person, that in actuality two women took turns writing and editing this book, I would never have known, the writing is completely seamless, no mistakes between what one person wrote and what the other wrote. I was completely impressed.

    One of the things I loved about this book was that it wasn't really dirty. I mean, it is a romance novel, so there is sex, but it is not graphic at all. I am not sure I have ever read a romance novel that was not graphic, and I enjoyed it just as much, if not more, than the ones I have read that did.

    I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys historical romances, regency romances, paranormal romances, or is just in need of a good old fashioned love story, well with a Lycan mixed in that is.

    I received this book as an ARC. I do not get paid to review books; I do so in order to assist you in recognizing books that you might enjoy.
