Overview

The Taming of the Wolf by Lydia Dare

Regency England has gone to the wolves!

He could never lose control...

Dashiel Thorpe, Earl of Brimsworth, has spent his life fighting the wolf within him. But when the full moon rises, Dash is helpless. A chance encounter with Caitrin Macleod on a moonlit night inadvertently binds the two together irrevocably, and Dash's impulsiveness plunges them both into a nightmare...

She never saw him coming...

Caitrin Macleod is no quiet country lass, but a witch with remarkable abilities. But when it comes to Dashiel, she's as helpless to fight his true nature as he is. Her senses overwhelmed, she runs back to the safety and security of her native Scotland...

But Dashiel is determined to follow her-she's the only woman who can free him from a fate worse than death. And Caitrin will ultimately have to decide whether she's running from danger, or true love...

Praise for A Certain Wolfish Charm:

"A Certain Wolfish Charm has bite! With its sexy hero, engaging heroine, and sizzling sexual tension, you won't want to put it down even when the moon is full."

-Sabrina Jeffries, New York Times bestselling Author of Wed Him Before You Bed Him

"Tough, resourceful, charming women battle roguish, secretive, aristocratic men under the watchful eye of society in Dare's delightful Victorian paranormal romance debut."

-Publishers Weekly (starred review)

I knew the sparks were going to fly fast and furious when I found out who Dash actually bit and married. I expected a tumultuous courtship and it was even more fun that I'd hoped. Dashiel Thorpe is more than a man but views himself as a monster. If a reader met him in the previous book, The Wolf Next Door, then he'll be expected to be a bad guy; a rounder and a villain of the first water. If a reader has not met him before, then this book will depict him as he really is - a misunderstood, unloved and tormented man who only wants to belong but is angry and afraid of the world all at the same time. He's angry because he's different and he's afraid because he doesn't really want to hurt anyone but is sure it can't be helped. Despite all he's done and all that he's been through, Dash really is like a Baby Ruth candy bar: Outside he's all rough and bumpy but inside there's a whole lot of sweetness that makes a reader just sigh in satisfaction. He is worth having a happy ever after, but he's going to have to work at it. He's a bit rusty and makes a lot of mistakes but that is what made me like him so much. He has this vulnerability about him that he tries to mask with the noble bearing that is inherently his, despite the nasty way his father treated him. There is a lot of pain in Dash's life and as the story progresses a reader understands the scope of what he's burdened with and it makes his loving Caitrin all the more special and powerful. Caitrin is an absolute doll. I always liked her character in the previous books because she is opinionated, feisty and doesn't take guff from anyone. On the other hand, if she's wrong, she'll admit it. She's a strong personality with a stern inner core yet despite that resolve, she is also very tenderhearted, loyal and brave. She's brave because going into crowded places hurts her, yet she does what she has to. She's loyal to her sisters and friends and has their back. And her tenderheartedness comes into play not only with Dash but with someone else making the happily ever after sort of bittersweet. She's a special lady whose fortitude is tested time and time again. The only person who can sway her and make her act a little silly and wanton is Dash and that made for some very fun and interesting interludes. I was so glad to see Cait getting her own man because she was a very influential character in the other books and I felt I'd gotten to know her enough that it was inevitable she'd have a chance at her own happiness. What I didn't expect was to see Alec again. Oh, that broke my heart. I liked him previously in the series and I liked him more now. I'm thrilled that he is a character I'll see again. This book pretty much guaranteed that, and I couldn't be happier. But it's also foreshadowed that it won't be easy. Something else is going to happen, a new element is introduced with a very light and teasing touch - but I caught it and am very intrigued. I wonder if other readers are getting the same idea I am. As I said, secondary characters play important roles in this book plus I got to see Elspeth again, who is a very dear friend of Caitrin's. I really enjoy when authors do that in a series, it's like visiting family again and catching up on the news. It's one of the reasons why this series stays on my keeper shelf; this book is no different. Originally posted at The Long and Short of It Romance Reviews
