This is book #5 in the Wild Wulfs of London series. I've enjoyed all that I have read in this series, too.

I don't remember exactly when in 2006 I read this book. I wrote 4 1/2 stars on the inside page though! ;-) This one was spooky because Gabriel and Amelia (and the maid) are actually hunted through the woods by pack of werewolves (bad ones).

Well written and full of action, romance and paranormal stuff.

4 1/2 Stars from This Reader.

This book seemed the most "out there" of the bunch. Not only were the Wulf brothers cursed to turn into wolves as soon as they fell in love (which is ridiculous all by itself if you ask me), but suddenly there was another "race" of such shifters, Wargs. These creatures straight out of lore left the woods because they couldn't survive there anymore and decided, lo and behold, to join society under the guise of strangers that met their untimely death in order to facilitate the Wargs' quest for the ...more

I don't usually read books like this one, but once I started reading it, I found that I could not stop. I didn't want it to end. There was something about the book, that made me want to keep reading. This book is a good book when you need something a little scary, a little fluffy, and a little way old school (as in the 1800's).

So happy I went ahead and purchased this book, the first two were available on my K2 and I really felt the need to read about GABRIEL the brother who hadn't found his mate yet. This one had many more surprises in from the get-go! I was well pleased with the entire book!

Amelia Sinclair is wed and widowed in the same day. Quite impulsive but now she has creatures stalking her and she has to rely on Gabriel Wulf. Neither of them are sure about the situation and are attracted but unsure if they're suited.

It's an interesting read and the characters are great fun.

Recommends it for: It was a DNF, so no one really.
Recommended to Fangirl by: Impulse buy
Pages Survived: 28

Many might say that twenty eight is not an adequate number of pages within a book to determine whether or not the book rocks or sucks. I'm a firm believer otherwise.

More often than not, if a book turns up as a DNF for me so early in the story, it's always attributed to one issue. Said issue always falls to the characters.

Mostly, if I can't finish a book before reaching the sixty page bench mark (my automatic cut off point that I stop at if I'm still hating/disliking the story

The Cursed One is book three and is now my favorite in this series. I was truly saddened when I found out Ronda is now passed, I was hoping for more books. I loved the writing flow and the surprises that kept me turning the pages as fast as I could to see what was happing next in this one, to me it was totally different from the rest of the series. In book one you’ll read that Amelia is to be married to Lord Collingsworth in this book you’ll find out what happened to them after they are married. ...more

Très bon roman qui annonçait une suite qui aurait pu être spectaculaire. Mille pensées pour cette auteur qui nous a quitté en 2007. Paix à son âme.

Lord Gabriel is the sensible and strong one of his family and just happens to stop at Collingsworth Manor and forced to use his virtues. Lady Amelia has been wedded and widowed in the same day and then is in a race for her life. While on the run to Wulfglen, and trying to get away from the Wargs in the forest, (shape-shifting creatures bent on domination), Gabriel and Amelia fall in love. Great adventure and great read!!

We first saw the connection between Gabriel Wolf and Lady Amelia, in The Dark One , the first in the Wild Wulfs of London series. Now, we've finally gotten the payoff. Lady Amelia has married Roger Collingsworth and is about to start her honeymoon at his country estate when she is attacked in the bedroom. At first she thinks it is her groom, but the voice is a growl and the hands violent, so she fights back. It just so happens, Gabriel stops by on his way to Wulfglen. Despite injuries he is nur ...more

A bit darker than the first two, still liked it a lot. The storyline has a few pretty obvious holes, but Gabriel and Amelia were hard to put down. I was disappointed that there wasn't more interaction between the brothers, that's best done in book 1. There is a short that should be read between books 2 and 3, it's in "Love at First Bite"

Whatever Thompson failed to do for her readers in the previous two installments, she achieved here. Guess the third time really is the charm! Gabriel and Amelia were fantastic! Amelia had great spunk and Gabriel never lost his edge, even while falling for the girl head over heels. Plus, the scene on the cabin floor...OH MY GOD, HOT!!!

I had to read this book because it was Gabriel's tale. I've been intrigued by Gabriel ever since he showed up in the first book. His only major downfall is that he's a blond. Sorry but I always see my strapping and romance men as dark haired except Jamie (Outlander).

Also I discovered, at the end of this book, that I managed to miss a short story about the Wulf boys. Because apparently Armond, Gabriel, Jackson and Sterling (Midnight Pleasures) have a half brother named Merrick. Didn't know that.

Amelia - "You are not my husband, my father, or any relation to me. Not that I ever planned to obey anyone who was or is anyway, but that is beside the point."

This was my favorite book of the three (probably because it had more paranormal elements). I really liked Amelia, and Gabriel was a great opposite for her!

This was almost a DNF. Amelia was one annoying heroine. It is one thing to be headstrong, it is another to be so completely stupid that you can't listen to simple instructions that might save your life.

The one star is for Amelia alone. If there had been a sane heroine in her place it would have been 3 stars.

Okay Ronda, any more Wulfs hiding somewhere?? This was a FANTASTIC read! I love spontaneous people and Amelia, well she is a spitfire! She had one hell of a wedding night that is for sure, but man she got off easy and now has Gabriel, awesome! This is a great read, and had me on my toes and I couldn't put down the book. Definatly have to read this series in order. This is a great series, too bad there are only three..Are there any cousins? LOL

This is a book for the historical romance lover, that likes her alpha males fanged and furry. A definite must read.
Jan 30, 2013 Lizzie rated it it was ok
didnt like it. maybe because i mistakenly read this out of order, and was confused as hell. It was like this story was thrown together, and still missed a great deal of information. Or maybe i didnt like it because i am pro wolf, and the hero got rid of his wolf. Even though there was proof positive that the beast was controlled and necessary. it was almost a waste of a saturday morning.

I primarily read this final novel of Thompson's Wild Wulf series for the payoff of having the five Wulf brothers united in the end. Both Amelia and Gabriel appeared in previous novels, and I didn't particularly like them, so I wasn't excited to spend a whole novel with them. They grew a little more likable, but not characters I wanted to spend a great deal of time with so I pretty much skimmed. The Warg storyline was strange, but it seemed to be setting us up for the series to either continue or ...more

This is the story about how Gabriel's overcomes his curse. Though it was an interesting story, I liked the previous books better. I'll tell you why later.

The story jumps right into the action which is a bit disconcerting, but it grabs you and the action is nonstop from there. There's a lot of conversation going on during times when they should be either scared witless, out of breath or trying be quiet so they won't be found.

But here it is. Even though this a wonderfully story by itself, havi

The Wild Wulfs of London series continues to captivate me. It's difficult to put one of these books down, including the short stories.
This one is the story of Jackson Wulf and Lucinda. They both have enough baggage to fill the back of a pickup truck, but the way Thompson has them dealing with it is well "human". It's the humans in this story that are the monsters.
Lucinda is the type of main character a girl can really get behind. She hasn't had an easy life, but she rolls with the punches and

Unfortunately, trouble follows in Amelia’s wake and she is attacked on her wedding night by a creature with claws and teeth.

Worst book of the series. I hated the female lead. She was annoying and selfish and for some reason her self-centeredness kept being confused with courage and bravery.
The plot was really random and bizarre - it would only make sense if the author wants to start a spin off series and used this book to lay the foundation (very shaky foundation that).

All in all, i want my money back.
