A Howling Yuletide –By Shannan Albright Fleur Delecourt knew her Christmas holiday was doomed from the start. Not only did she hate the cold and snow, but also she found herself saddled with a ski instructor, courtesy of a friend’s twisted sense of humor. Werewolf Rory Furr left Scotland to find a life and pack of his own. What he was not prepared for was finding his mate in the form of a petite redhead who tests both his self-control and patience.
REVIEW- Fleur hates the cold, and is not really happy with her friend Lily right now. One of the four women who won the trip to the Crescent Moon Lodge for the holidays, Fleur is going to make the most out of her trip, even if it means getting out for her full day of ski lessons with the hot instructor, Rory Furr. Rory is only filling in for a friend as ski instructor, he is an alpha wolf, who has set out on his own to see the world before he settles down with a pack of his own. Running through the snowy woods he first spots the fiery redhead making her way to the lodge. After a hard day of trying to teach Fleur how to ski Rory decides it's break time, but when Fleur gets hurt, he takes her to his cabin. Spending the day talking and holding hands he doesn't notice that the moon is rising. When his wolf takes over one thing leads to another and he bites her. By biting her at that moment he mates her, something he was not intending to do. Falling in love with Rory was quick for Fleur but when he can't show the love back, she leaves him. Pulling his head out of his ass, Rory quickly realizes that he does truly love her. Getting furry together for the rest of their lives is just enough to make Fleur not hate the cold as much anymore. Loved the accent from this sexy wolf! My Rating: 4.5
