I really wasn't sure how I was going to like this romance novel because of the whole werewolf/historical romance theme. It's one that I hadn't read before this one but, surprisingly this one was exceptionally entertaining.
From the first page I was hooked. I guess what surprised me most was that even thought the book is written by a fantastic duo the writing was seamless. Many times I've read a book where there is more than one author and you can see subtle changes in the writing when it switches writers. This time though I honestly couldn't tell that there was more than one author writing.
This book was full of humour and adventure with a lot of romance though not as many sexy bits as I would have liked. However, that doesn't mean I didn't love the novel which I most certainly did. Maddy's life seems to turn upside down one fateful night when she witnesses the down and out rogue friend of her brother Weston Hadley transform into a wolf.
After this startling revalation Maddy and Weston head of a a turbulent journey to Gretna Green in Scotland for a quickie marriage to solidify Maddy's silence on the true nature of Hadley. All the while being pursued by Maddy's father, and a rival of Westons.
Needless to say neither are too pleased about their predicament but I really enjoyed the banter between the two of them. Often times the banter in historical romance novel can be quite...boring but in this case the Maddy and Weston were arguing like normal people without the fluff. Plus the two of them were willing to take jabs at each other and I found myself laughing quite a bit at both their antics.
I really loved how real the characters were with each other. They had their ups and downs and thank goodness the relationship in the novel between them wasn't a case of the dreaded "Insta-Love" that's plaguing romance novels these days. As much as they fought Maddy and Weston had a chemistry that sort of reminded me of what Mr.Turning The Pages and I have. That's what made me love the book so much I think.
All in all if you want a humorous historical romance with just a tinge of paranormal I strongly suggest reading this book. While it is part of a series I found that I had no trouble reading this book without having read the others though I do plan on going back and reading them as soon as I'm able. I was just approved for the next book in this series by the lovely people at NetGalley and I can't wait to see where the next book leads. I highly recommend this book to everyone whether you're familiar with the genre or not it's a fun read and in the midst of more serious novels one can't help but relish time to have fun while reading.

If you are looking for a Historical, Paranormal Romance that is fun to read - here is your book! I have never been disappointed in Lydia Dare's books and The Wolf Who Loved Me is one of the best.
The Wolf Who Loved Me is a part of the Westfield Wolves series. This is one book that you do not feel as if you missed anything by not reading the others in the series. I will warn you that after you finish this book, you will want to read those books!
I love the characters, the action, the plot and that is wasn't too graphic. I thoroughly enjoy it and I highly recommend it to anyone who likes this genre.
