Tall, Dark, and Wolfish

The second novel in Lydia Dare’s trilogy can be read without reading the first. This one tells the story of Lord Benjamin Westfield, who was only spoken of having taken off to Scotland with little notice in A Certain Wolfish Charm.

Benjamin is the youngest of the three Westfields, who are all Lycans, that is, werewolves. Unfortunately, after a disastrous evening with a prostitute too close to the full moon, Benjamin has lost the ability to shift. He seeks the advice of an o

Favorite Quote: "Did you miss me?"
"Like a piece of myself was missing."

Lord Benjamin Westfield is a powerful werewolf that has lost a part of himself. He heads to Scotland in search of a famed healer to help him in his time of need. Elsbeth Campbell has followed in her mother's and grandmother's footsteps by becoming a powerful witch and healer. When Lord Benjamin and Elsbeth meet they find themselves falling head over heels in love and not sure whom really needs whom.

Good read but stay away if you 'doona ken' dialect... The plot in the first book [A Certain Wolfish Charm] was driven by the fact the hero [Simon, our hero's oldest brother] was a werewolf. In this one, Ben has lost the ability to change and has gone to Scotland looking for a someone who might be able to heal him. What he finds is the daughter of the healer he sought, and the coven of witches she belongs to.

The book is charming and funny - the characters are people you would like to know. The p

I'll never let ye be, Ben. I plan ta claim ye as my Lycan mate this night. And every day from this moment on.

Benjamin Westfield is a werewolf and couldn't ever imagine losing his wolf. Then one night under the full moon, he doesn't change and is at a loss as to what to do. He feels as if he has lost a huge part of himself. When he starts to investigate and research he learns of a healer in the highlands of Scotland who might be able to bring his wolf back. So he heads up to Edinburgh. Elspeth C
Talk, Dark and Wolfish by Lydia Dare has to be my favorite thus far. This romance story has an old world feel and the mixture of Were Wolf vs. Scottish Witch is delightfully delicious.

In the first book Simon was the main character who is the eldest of three brothers. This installment takes care of Ben who is the youngest and the one who seems to attract trouble as easily as luring a bee to honey. Only problem is, is that Ben is suddenly broken. Ack, how does a were wolf get broken?

Well at least

Great historical / paranormal romance - my two favorite genres combined in one.
I interviewed the author Lydia Dare on my blog in September. Check out the interview.

This was an AMAZING story. Lydia Dare has now officially become an "auto-buy" for me.
Second in the trilogy, better than the first one.

This is the second novel I've read by Lydia Dare. I just love her characterizations of the heriones in her books. They are cunning, intelligent, strong willed and vulnerable while without any superhuman abilities.In the second installment of the Westfield Brother, Ben Westfield finds himself in the alarming position of not being able to change into his wolf form during the full moon. In an effort to resolve this problem, he travels to Edinburough, Scotland to locate a healer (witch). Meanwhile, ...more

I have to say that this one was a little harder for me to like. Only because of El's interactions with her coven. It was a lot of the same stuff over and over again: "He's gonna take ye away" and "I'm no' goin anywhere." After I got past that though it was just as good, if not better than, the first book.

I thought, "Oh now we're adding witches to the werewolf story," with a very sarcastic eyeroll (if you didn't get that from the sentence). Because in my experience, when you have a story that al

Very strong 4.5 stars only reason it's not five is because I'm not sure I'll read it again. I laughed and I cried. Benjamin is a dear, however he tends to not do well when he means well. Poor guy. Elsbeth is his match, no doubt about it. There's a nice parallel story regarding her mother and her father. I liked this one even better than the first and I really liked that one.

Elsbeth is part of a coven of witches who each have a specialty. One controls weather, another plants, another can throw f

Benjamin Westfield es un personaje que hasta que no lo lees no le encuentras mucha gracia. Una vez comienzas con el y es imposible no quererlo. Atormentado, Fuerte, Cariñoso y vulnerable en una manera inimaginable pero verdaderamente adorable para un hombre que nada menos es un licantropo.

Ellie es una bruja demasiado singular pero en este caso no diria adecuada sino perfecta para Benjamin y justamente lo que necesita.

La trama y el misterio no se me dieron muy bien en esta porque desde el inicio
Nyeritain adiknya Simon, Ben yang ga bisa berubah jadi werewolf, trus ke Skotlandia buat cari obatnya.
Disana nanti dy bertemu dengan Elspeth, yang ternyata adalah anak dari penyihir yang dicari Ben.
Elspeth sendiri sedang mencari ayahnya yang seorang werewolf, dan ingin balas dendam karena sudah menelantarkan dy dan ibunya.

Yang ini unsur paranormalnya agak lebih banyak dari yang pertama, yang bikin Q agak bingung tu logat scottishnya Elspeth. Ga biasa kali yah :3

Another wolf in the Regency. Ben travels to Scotland in search of a healer to help him with his change. He finds a group of witches, one in particular, that can help bring back his beast. Elspeth, a healer, vows to help Ben even against her coven's wishes. What follows is a tangled web of revealed truths, love, and a healing that brings out the happiness in both of them. I thoroughly enjoyed Tall, Dark and Wolfish, even more so than the first in Ms. Dare's new series. I cannot wait to see what s ...more

Mmmmm, me esta gustando bastante y no me lo esperaba, quizas por eso me esta gustando mas, tenia las expectativas bajas, porque en el primer libro apenas se habla de Ben, solo se comenta que manda cartas asiduamente a su madre y pense: "ohhhh, dios un "niño de mama"". Pero para nada Ben es un amor, muy honesto y sincero, dulce y directo, y sigue teniendo ese aire a depredador que tienen los tres hermanos. La protagonista me esta encantando, es fuerte, directa, ingenua pero valiente. La verdad es ...more

He goes to a healer/witch in Scotland for help.

Another great book!! A werewolf who lost is wolf seeks a witch to heal him and finds so much more! If you love shifters, give this a read, but read them in order!

I heard about Benjamin in book 1, all I knew that he was somewhere in Scotland and his family didn't know where or why. Well this is the explanation. First he is of course a Lycan like his brothers, second, he can't transform any more after an incident with a woman. From a friend he learns that perhaps a healer/witch in Scotland can help.

Benjamin is like his brother in that aspect that he is afraid to love and be loved. He wants to control the beast and perhaps that is the problem. He is rather
Who could resist a title like that. When this book was offered for review, I was quickly drawn to it. It is the second installment in the Westfield Werewolf trilogy by Lydia Dare.

Even though at the time I had yet to read the first book (A Certain Wolfish Charm), I thought this book sounded interesting. The cover and the blurb were catchy and had a bit of suspense to it.

Oh boy another Lydia Dare. I might say this is my favorite book out of the series, but I can't say for sure yet. Today's selection is Tall, Dark and Wolfish. So, we continue on our reading of the Westfield brothers. Here is what's the story about:

I had originally skipped Tall, Dark and Wolfish after reading the first book in Dare's Regency werewolf series because brother Ben the lead here had been offscreen in that book and I just couldn't wait to find out how Will and Prisca were going to find a happily ever after. But coming back to Ben's story after having read all the rest of the wolves' stories and the first vampire one in the series, I have to admit that I didn't give Ben a fair shake, because Tall, Dark and Wolfish actually ended ...more

3.5 Stars

Benjamin Westfield has a little problem…his ability to transform into his Lycan form has vanished and he feels compelled to seek out a witch who can heal him and restore his inner beast. However, when Ben finds the beautiful Elspeth Campbell, she is not what he expects and he finds himself wanting more than just her healing arts…

A good premise and a sweet romance but not as compelling as the first book in the series.

Ellie and Ben are a cute couple

Lord Benjamin, the youngest of the Westfeld brothers, is a broken werewolf. He can no longer change in the light of the full moon. Horrified at himself, he seeks out a healer—a witch, although he isn't sure he believes in them—and comes across the beautiful Elspeth Campbell. But in order to let Elspeth heal him, he has to tell her everything. And spilling his guts to a beautiful Scottish girl isn't the easiest thing in the world.

Elspeth isn't quite sure what to think of Lord Benjami

I am thoroughly enjoying this Westfield Brothers series by Lydia Dare. Her debut book, A Certain Wolfish Charm, is a great introduction to the brothers and their animal sides, along with their heroines, of course. Tall, Dark and Wolfish is even better, which makes me very anxious for the next installment. It’s nice to be excited about a series again.

We don’t get much of Benjamin in ACWC. He’s gone missing, for lack of a better term. No one has heard from him for weeks, which is not like the man,
