Willow is an outcast even though she is a princess. Ruben is a prince battling his wolf shifter side. Together they must find a murder in Willow’s realm. A difficult task when everyone in Willow’s lands is blonde, beautiful and lavender eyed. Trying to overcome the prejudices and the overwhelming pull of the wolf both Willow and Ruben have a treacherous journey ahead.

The Wolf Prince was an interesting and intriguing read. The premise for the plot was strong and original but the story seemed to l

This is a nice story, but I couldn’t really buy the setting. Convincing fantasy needs a bit more effort and thought. The story switches between two worlds; the real world, and one where a family of werewolves rule a Kingdom, and hold grand balls to try to find a bride for their son and heir, Prince Ruben.

No, hang on, that is supposed to be the real world, the other world is inhabited by two races of strange magical fairy-type people who nevertheless can pass for human. Princess Willow is unwante

I loved the interaction between Princess Willow and Prince Ruben. I hated how badly Willow's family treated her, and just because she looked differently and didn't appear to have magic like they did. But she did have magic - a magic inherited by her real father. Will she find her father? What will he be like? Does he love her? Will Ruben and Willow be able to find true love with each other and will they be able to hold onto it. Who murdered Ruben's maid? Who can Ruben and Willow trust? Read more ...more

As usual I should have read this ARC copy from Netgalley when I got it. Instead I waited and waited and now regret not reading it sooner. I love the two main characters. One is a Seelie Princess who is an outcast to her family. The other is a Shape shifting werewolf Prince from the human world. Both worlds collide when the Princess finds a portal to the human world and goes to a party that is thrown for the Prince. What follows next is adventure, mayhem, murder, and intrigue.

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Based on the description of the book, it seemed like my type of story: werewolves, fairies, magic, romance -- all of my favorite things! I did generally love the general story: Boy meets girl in a very fairytale way only to be torn apart by their different duties and roles in their respective worlds. The characters has so much depth, indicated by their struggles to fit in with their fellow fairies/shape-shifters. There was a lot o

I so wanted to enjoy this tale. The bare bones of the story sounded oh so intriguing and my luck with Harlequin-published works has been excellent so when The Wolf Prince came up on Netgalley, I submitted my request and when I needed a mental break, I pulled up this title.

Sadly, I was very disappointed.

What I liked, as I said before, was the bare bones of the story. A prince that doesn't want to be who shifts from human to wolf and who fights daily with the urge to just hang up humanity and run

This really has been an unusual year for me in that reading has been very hit or miss. I might devour three or four books in a week and then not pick up another for three weeks. So I do apologize in that I haven't had as many reviews as I usually do. Now onto the review.

I found THE WOLF PRINCE to be a book that I found myself reading when I was sitting in doctor's offices with my other half. I found that Ms. Whiddon did a wonderful job with the characters of Ruben and Willow but the others were

This review was first published on the Just A Reader review blog.

I found The Wolf Prince by Karen Whiddon disappointing. There really isn't a better word to describe my reaction to this book.

The beginning of The Wolf Prince was really strong - a ball to "encourage" Ruben, the son and heir, to choose a wife despite his deep-seated reluctance to do so given that he thinks he's going insane. Willow, a fairy princess (literally!), who crashes said ball. An act of terrorism against the royal family a

I was a little disappointed when I didn’t get the dark prince I thought I was getting from the cover. The book had a lot of promise, but I found it fell a bit short. I found myself really getting into the romance in the beginning, but not so much afterwards even though there was still quite a bit of passion. But that’s another thing. I was feeling the romance in the beginning, but then when it came to their “love sc

The Wolf Prince was a book with a lot of promise. It was sweet in some places. It had just the right amount of heat in other places. It had characters that I really liked. There was plenty of mystery and twists and turns to keep me turning the pages. The bad guys were really, really bad and a few of the players were a mystery until you really got to know them. I really, really liked a lot of this story, but…..

Okay, let’s start with what I liked. Prince Ruben was a great werewolf MC. He was alone

Man this book had some promise. I was intrigued in the beginning and was anticipating the start of a beautiful relationship between Ruben and Willow.

What I got instead was so... anticlimactic and uninteresting. I mean, I like Willow and the Cinderella-esque thing she has going on - but unfortunately she wasn't enough to really pull through the story for me. Ruben on the other hand, dude I actually was into you at the beginning of the book - but then you had go all alpha male 'I make the rules he

Intrigante sinossi, o blurb, per questo libro, tanto da attirare la mia attenzione, lasciandomi poi estremamente delusa a causa della trama troppo, troppo lineare, senza un minimo di suspance o pathos. Mi aspettavo tutt'altro genere di libro, invece mi sono ritrovata per le mani una sorta di versione di Cenerentola dotata di Principe, mutaforma o shifter in questo caso.
L'inizio poi del racconto con tanto di ballo organizzato dai genitori del Principe Ruben ha contribuito non poco a farmi notare

This was my first book by this author and this story world, and I found the series premise interesting and fun. I especially liked how tortured the hero was as he battled his inner wolf and his fears for his sanity. The heroine was a bit like Cinderella except she was a princess rather than being treated like a servant, so while she had a lonely family life, she had some authority and backbone, and she wasn't taken in by her sister's machinations.

The middle of the book sagged a bit, although thi

I'm a big fan of shape-shifter books in general and enjoy anything with a bit of magic - so this book has a winning mix of both.

Then why just 3 stars, you might wonder?

Mostly because the two dimensional and plain stupid characters with little to no redeeming (read - interesting) features. I'm referring to the sister and mother of the heroine for the most part. Those two spoiled the story for me quite a bit.

Now, I LIKE villains - they are quite often my favorites - when done well.

This installment in Karen Whiddon's The Pack series was a quick, fun, and exciting read. I loved Ruben and Willow.

Willow is a Sidhe Princess. She is the product of both the Seelie and the Unseelie courts. She has been told by her mother the queen of the Seelie court that she is worthless and has no magic. She has been raised as an outcast in her own home. Willow's magical gifts are the ability to speak with all animals and to heal the sick and injured.

This book was sooo boring, even if it was a Cinderella with a twist, the twist was not enough and the plot so straight to be useless to read ad I could have written it myself.

Questo libro è stato così terribilmente noioso e anche se era una rilettura di Cenerentola con tanto di giallo, la trama era così seplice e lineare che avrei potuto scriverla anche io, e non è un complimento.

I received this from Harlequin Netgalley for an honest review;

This story was a little all over the place. I thought it was going in one direction then the plot changed into something else. The murder mystery and back stabbing was good, and Willow's family is absolutely mean and crazy. The chase to catch the killer also turns out to be a learning experince for both Willow and Ruben. They make a good couple & the HEA is well deserved.

I really enjoyed this book! It's the first time I have read Karen Whiddon but I found THE WOLF PRINCE a great read with lots of dynamic twists and turns in the plot. Both Ruben and Willow were complex but enduring characters, but I would have liked more steamy scenes between the characters!
I totally recommend this book and author to anyone who loves a sensual, thrilling story about a wolf and his fairy princess.

Sinceramente questa storia non mi ha preso per niente e quello che dovrebbe essere l'eroe maschile non lo sopportavo proprio.
Le premesse c'erano, si poteva fare di meglio...

Si ringrazia NetGalley per la gentile preview

I did find this romance extremely boring and the male hero strongly unappealing.
Mrs Whiddon, you can do better than this.

Story of the heir to his clan's throne, Ruben needs an appropriate mate but he falls for Willow. She is half fairy and half shifter. When Willow comes into Ruben's world, someone follows her and commits murder. Willow and Ruben must join together to find who the murderer is and try to find a way to be together.

Nice read

Like the ugly duckling, the young princess is raised in a hostile environment and escapes through the veil to the world of humans. I truly enjoyed that the Brights were the horrid people and the Shadows were people of character. The villains were self-interest and despicable.

This was a very good shifter book. You go through the turmoil with Rueben as he fights his wolf. Willow is a strong woman, even through her struggles with her bratty sister and mom. I loved the shadow king. He made the story better. Would read it again
