Lovely, guileless Rowan Murray felt drawn to brooding Liam Donovan with a power she'd never imagined possible. And his breathtaking kisses convinced her he felt the same. But she soon realized her darkly enigmatic neighbor was as elusive as the mysterious wolf she'd seen lurking about her cabin. Liam was tormented by indecision. He understood he had no right to love Rowan, knowing what lay ahead. But the allure of her beguiling innocence overpowered his will until he could resist no longer. And he knew, if he was ever to make Rowan his, he had no chance but to reveal his incredible secret. (Summary and cover courtesy of goodreads.com)
If I was starting to lag with the concept of this series, this book brought me right back to it. I absolutely loved the premise at the location in the Pacific Northwest. Rowan is trying to figure herself out and even if there may have been some supernatural prompting, she takes the big leap to figure it all out on her own. Rather than being content with a lackluster life, she makes a leap and lands herself in a new passion, a new approach and a new intriguing neighbor.
Liam is also trying to sort out his life. He’s the unmentioned cousin of Morgana, Sebastian and Anastasia and somehow manages to fit in with their dynamic just fine. It’s nice that the characters have a chance to get to know each other rather than falling into instalove (well, perhaps in parallel).
Warning: Contains sexual content.
Rating: 4 stars!
