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.

My rating: 

I really enjoyed this book. I found the story interesting and engaging. I felt that the writing was very good and the characters were well thought out. I found myself irritated occasionally at the Paige's actions, as well as Riley's behavior, but was happy at how everything turned out at the end. That I cared about the characters is proof of how engrossed I became in this book.

The story kept me so entertained, that I sat down and read it all in one sitting. The book is a good ole romance story, boy meets girl and they fall for each other. It has the added bonuses of werewolves and Norse gods, which I found refreshing. There are a couple of twists and turns before the ending that caught me by surprise. That is a great thing! I do not enjoy books that are completely lacking in complexity. I like there to be a little Huh? moment during a story and this book definitely delivered.

The book, obviously, is not for young readers. There is graphic language, violence, and steamy sex scenes. I would recommend this book for adults that like a good, steamy romance and paranormal books.
