Genre: Adult Paranormal Romance
Paige Donovan is an ambitious college graduate who aspires to reach the top of the corporate ladder. She’s climbing fast when given the promotion of a lifetime at a prestigious fashion magazine in New York City. Her bright future comes to an unexpected halt after news of her father’s death. She inherits his old cabin in the Colorado Rockies, and just when she thinks her luck couldn’t get any worse, she has a car accident in the mountains and awakens in the small, remote community of Black River.
Soon, she’s engulfed in the mystical world of Varulv—wolves descended from 13th century Scandinavia and blessed by Norse gods with the ability to appear human. Paige is desperate to return home, but never expects to fall for her rescuer, Riley Gray, a charming young werewolf from England who offers her an alternate future with his pack.
Now, she must choose between the career she’s always wanted and the love she’s always dreamed.
This has nothing to do with the review, but I want to apologize first for being gone for so long. I have the flu. And it’s pretty terrible. I only managed to finish reading this book because it was rather short, and because I could read it on my ereader, holding it up above my head while I watched reruns of Ghost Hunters on TV. I’m writing this review while I’m sniffing my nose like crazy, so it’s kind of hectic here. I’ve had the flu for over a week now, and I want to get better asap, but it seems to drag on.
Either way, end of rant, start of review.
The Howling Heart is the kind of book I love. Paranormal romance with some original twists, the kind of heart-stopping romance that makes me jump up and down on my couch (if I was in any shape to do that), and that’s just plain fun from start to end.
Paige Donovan is certainly ambitious. But at the same time, she longs for love, for more than she’s always had, for an emotional connection on a level she’s never experienced before. After her Dad passes away and she goes back to the cabin they always spent their summer holidays in, she might just run into that kind of deep, true love she’s been hoping to find.
But the book is about more than love too. It’s about regret. It’ about loss. It’s about forgiveness. It’s about choosing to be a different person than you originally thought you were.
It’s pretty awesome. You should check it out. If you like adult paranormal romance, then you absolutely have to check it out.
