TALL, DARK, AND WOLFISH by Lydia Dare (ARC Review)

TALL, DARK, AND WOLFISH
Author: Lydia Dare
Source: ARC received from Sourcebooks
* I received this ARC free of charge in exchange for an honest review*
  • Mass Market Paperback: 416 pages
  • Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca (May 4, 2010)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 1402236956
  • ISBN-13: 978-1402236952
SYNOPSIS:

He's lost the most important part of himself...

Lord Benjamin Westfield is a powerful werewolf-until one full moon when he doesn't change. His life now shattered, he rushes off to Scotland in search of the healer who can restore his inner beast, only to find she's not at all what he expected...

She would make him whole, if she could...

Young, beautiful witch Elspeth Campbell will do anything to help anyone who calls upon her healing arts. Then Lord Benjamin shows up, and she suddenly discovers she may need him even more than he needs her...

MY THOUGHTS: 
WOW!  I thought the first book in this series was great, but this one is even better!  I loved Benjamin! He is the bad boy that all the girls want! He is strong and  very comfortable with his extra abilities of being a wolf.  Then when he loses this ability he is told to go to see a healer.  Elspeth is a strong heroine who balances out the character of Benjamin.  She is a red-haired witch that can give Benjamin a run for his money!  I was rooting for both of them when it was a battle of wills between witches and wolves. 

This author knows how to write paranormal and wolves.  She has the ability to keep you hooked in the story, trying to sniff out the plot ahead of time, and tasting the hunger that each of her characters explore in the sensual scenes.  I can hardly wait to see what happens in the next book in the series!

MY RATING:

Outstanding Book That Will Stay On My Bookshelf
For Rereading!

I really enjoyed the first one is this series. I didn't sign up to do any of the others because I didn't know I would like them. Oh well!
thanks for the review!
