Not deep, but this light and sexy historical paranormal has - I gotta say it - a certain wolfish charm :)

Desperate because her young nephew's entry into puberty has turned him into a 'monster' and with her written pleas for assistance being ignored by her nephew's 'official' guardian, Lily decides to travel to confront Simon, Duke of Blackmore, in person. And quickly finds her life spinning out of control as Lily can't seem to avoid succumbing to the beastly noble's seduction.

The stubborn and supposedly intellegent Lily puts her brain on hold for the first half of the book while she succumbs to the overwhelming animal attraction to the rakish Duke of Blackmore, so it's not surprising that Lily quickly finds herself 'ruined' and married to the moody, seductive, possessive, and secretive Simon. But even though it took Lily longer than it should have to question whether marriage to a man with a scandalous reputation was really a good idea, I found myself enjoying this meandering, light and sexy read. It probably helped that Simon is just as helpless to avoid his attraction Lily - a man who'd had enough experience to gain his reputation, would have likely developed excellent skills at avoiding entanglements, but then again Simon wasn't using his brain either.

A Certain Wolfish Charm is the first in a trilogy, and with two more wolfish brothers to go, I'll be checking out brother Ben's book, Tall, Dark and Wolfish, (Ben's offscreen in this one) and waiting anxiously for charming William to get his book, The Wolf Next Door, and to see how work things out between Will and the intriguing Prisca - Dare's already got the sparks flying between those two.
