Regency England has gone to the wolves!

He could never lose control…
Dashiel Thorpe, Earl of Brimsworth, has spent his life fighting the wolf within him. But when the full moon rises, Dash is helpless. A chance encounter with Caitrin Macleod on a moonlit night inadvertently binds the two together irrevocably, and Dash’s impulsiveness plunges them both into a nightmare…

She never saw him coming…
Caitrin Macleod is no quiet country lass, but a witch with remarkable abilities. But when it comes to Dashiel, she’s as helpless to fight his true nature as he is. Her senses overwhelmed, she runs back to the safety and security of her native Scotland… 

But Dashiel is determined to follow her-she’s the only woman who can free him from a fate worse than death. And Caitrin will ultimately have to decide whether she’s running from danger, or true love…


What more can I say about this author and her books that I haven’t said before?  The books are amazing and the writing is spectacular! With each book, my love of the series just grows even more!

Like the title suggests, Dashiel must learn how to tame his beast side.  Unfortunately, Caitrin finds herself mixed into the lesson against her will.  It leaves consequences that will leave both of them with choices to make.  They each have their own set of secrets they choose to keep, while Dash is trying to convince Caitrin to marry him.

Filled with humor, secrets, suspense and exceptional writing, I found myself actually liking Dash  in this book.  I wasn’t sure if I was going to enjoy his story since he was around in previous books.  Yet, after just a few chapters, Dash grew on me.  Now that I have finished the story, I find myself missing him!

Caitrin was headstrong and matched Dash perfectly!  She wasn’t going to just roll over and give in to him just because he wanted her to.  She was the perfect balance to Dash’s personality.  She could match him with each remark he made.  I loved seeing her interact with Dash.

If you are a fan of Lydia Dare and her series, then this is another amazing read to add to your collection!  You won’t be disappointed and the books are just getting better with each one!
