Happy Friday!! Today I have a novella from a series I have reviewed on here before. This novella is a prequel to the book, Cloaked in Fur. We learn more about the characters and how they met. This was a fun, quick read. For my full review keep reading after the book blurb. Have a fantastic weekend!
Raised by an overly protective wulfkin pack, Daciana leaps at the chance to venture into the human world for her one-year independence ritual. But after someone steals the endangered bear cubs she’s been assigned to protect, she must locate them or lose her job and return home in disgrace. The sexy inspector on the case isn’t making this any easier. He knows nothing of her kind, and wulfkin rules forbid relationships with humans.
Newly divorced Inspector Connell Lonescu trusts no one but himself. He’s convinced relationships are a waste of time and thinks burying himself in work will ease the pain. Yet he’s attracted to the gorgeous and mysterious Daciana, even if there’s something slightly odd about her. Can Connell learn to trust the sexy but secretive woman?
Daciana is on her year away from her wolf pack. She is working at an animal institute. When the bear cubs she has been looking after are taken she is thrown into the mix as suspect, investigator and trespasser. Through this she works with Connell, the Inspector in charge of the case. Through their search the two become closer and as their passion flares so does the intensity of the case. Will they be able to control their passions long enough to find the bear cubs or will they be too late?
I love Daciana and Connell. They are smart, well developed characters that flow well within the story. You can really see how their relationship developed into the one we see in Cloaked in Fur. The paranormal aspect is fairly little in this book. It is mentioned and she only shifts one time. If you are looking for something that has a lot of paranormal this novella won’t give it to you. But, this is a prequel that definitely shows the paranormal in the follow-up. Overall, this is a great novella. I can’t wait to see what T.F Walsh has in store next.
