Wolf McCloud

Overview

Living as a spinster and caring for her sister's illegitimate child, Julia Larson has never known passion. So she's surprised by the feelings that are stirred up when a secretive new ranchhand shows up to work on the Larson ranch. He's not a man she can trust, but as a violent fight for her land's water rights heats up, he may be the man she needs.

Wolf McCloud charms the ladies, but never sticks around long. Having traced the mother who abandoned him to Northern California, he never expects to be drawn to Julia Larson as more than a means to an end. Wolf wants to track down his past, but the possibility of a passionate future with Julia may be a call too rich to resist.

Meet the Author

Jane’s first historical romance, Secrets of a Midnight Moon, was heralded as ‘sensitive and sensuous, violent and tender.’

“I found the plot to my first novel in a little known history of Northern California Indians when I learned that Native Americans were being taken as slaves by the settlers, their families threatened with death and dismemberment if they tried to leave. Yes, one can weave a romance around such an appalling event!”

Since then she has published nine full length novels and four anthologies, all dealing with the perils and passions of romantic historical fiction. 

She graduated from the University of Minnesota majoring in American and Russian History revealing that, “while all of my stories are set in the US, I had hoped one day to set one in Russia, though in my opinion, the best ones have already been written.”

Jane continues to write and also edits for Melange Books. She currently lives in St. Paul, Minnesota with her husband, Richard Noer.

very good read.

This well written novel takes place in the 1800s showing us what life was like for half-breed Wolf McCloud. He met Julia Larson when he worked at the ranch her father owned. Wolf was very attracted to her but knew he didn't have a chance with her so kept his distance. What a shock for both of them when Julia's father died and left a condition in his will that Wolf and Julia must marry in order to keep the ranch. The characters in Wild Heart are very likable. Well, except for Josette.  She is Julia's spoiled sister and is quite the hussy.  She flirts with every man she sees and actually had a baby out of wed lock. That was absolutely unheard of at that time. She didn't want anything to do with the child and left it to Julia to care for.  Julia was a very kind woman who didn't think she was pretty or good enough for someone to love.  Wolf had a very hard life starting with his mother giving him to his grandmother to "get rid of".  Due to his breeding, he was not well respected, even though he was very intelligent and a hard working man. I admired Wolf's disinterest in Josette when she tried to seduce him. He kept his distance from her as much as possible. It was nice to see that he cared for and admired Julia and she for him as well. Too bad they both kept their feelings a secret. The author presents her readers with a novel that is exciting, suspenseful, and emotional. This is a good historical romantic suspense with lots of twists and turns and a great happy ending.
