Title: Gone With the Wolf
Author: Kristin Miller
Publishers: Entangled Covet, Entangled Publishing
Date of Publication: (originally April 23rd, 2013) April 25th, 2016
This is the first book in the series and I read it as the first in the Seattle Wolf Box Set. Just imagine someone in big business has stolen the deeds to the bar you’ve been struggling to run for years and won’t talk to you about it. What could you do to get to them? In this case Emelia Hudson (aka Emie) takes herself undercover, getting a job as a temp in the company. While attending the office Hallowe’en party she sneaks into the wine cellar where she indulges herself with some tasty – and very expensive – wine. It is here that alpha werewolf Drake Wilder discovers her and the attraction is off the wall especially as he realises she is both his mate and human! He has been brought up to believe that no human can successfully give birth to the offspring of an alpha, he also knows that Emelia may now be in danger if his psychotic twin realises Drake has found his mate. To top it all, Emelia knows nothing of the werewolves, so how will this feisty, independent young woman react to everything that she’s about to learn? Will they live to achieve their HEA together?
This is a story packed with action and humour. Three hundred year old Drake is a take charge type of guy, one brought up in a different era when women knew their place was in their home with a strong male to look after them . . . but Emelia has grown up in a different time and is a free spirit, not looking to have her life taken control of by someone else – and certainly not by the very same person that threatens the existence of her dream bar! Both characters are brilliantly portrayed and the story has an intriguing plot that makes it interesting reading. I have no hesitation in looking forward to reading other novels in this series, especially as I’m reading the box set which has books 1 to 3 in the series! It’m looking forward to seeing how the characters and series develops. I’m impressed by the author’s skill in crafting the secret werewolf world within the city and imaginative storytelling so have no hesitation in highly recommending it to other fans of paranormal werewolf romances with a strong alpha and feisty female lead.
Thanks to the publishers for gifting me an ARC of the box set containing this novel, via NetGalley, in exchange for my honest review.
CEO and alpha werewolf Drake Wilder has given up the search for his one true love. When he discovers that she’s a secretary in his company, Drake’s primal instincts kick into overdrive.
What he wouldn’t give to have her fingers rake over his body instead of the keyboard…
Free-spirited bartender Emelia Hudson wants nothing more than to make her Seattle-based bar succeed. But when profits decline, she slips into a dress suit and secures a nine-to-five. After learning that her bar has become property of Wilder Financial, Emelia is determined to get some answers.
Two can play the ruthless business game. If only her attraction to the boss wasn’t so intense…
When Drake’s twin brother senses that Drake has found his match—and now inherits their father’s billion dollar estate—he hatches a plan to take Emelia out. Drake vows to protect her at all costs, but he might have to pay with his own life.
This book is available from a variety of sources as a standalone but it will also be released on Monday, April 25th, 2016 as part of a box set containing the complete trilogy of stories in this series . . . Book Two will be reviewed tomorrow . . .
