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 ...more
Brides dream of their wedding night, but for Amelia, Lady Collingsworth, the dream turns into a living nightmare. She's attacked by something inhuman and then learns her husband is dead. Fate intervenes in the form of the lone remaining servant, Mora, and her distant neighbor, Gabriel Wulf. Gabriel doesn't bring good news. He's been attacked on the road, and creatures lurk in the shadows, clearly targeting the Collingsworth estate and its inhabitants. And the creature within Gabri
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 ...more
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 ...more
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. ...more
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.
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.
The one star is for Amelia alone. If there had been a sane heroine in her place it would have been 3 stars.
It's an interesting read and the characters are great fun.
