Accustomed to running wild with her Lycan brothers in the swamps of Louisiana, Miss Liviana Mayeux is shipped off to London where Lady Hadley offers to sponsor and assist her. Before she knows it, Vivi finds herself in the middle of a pack of English wolves who are all vying for her attention. But Lady Hadley's handsome son Grayson is determined to keep her out of trouble. If only he knew how...
This is my first ever historical shifter book and I quite enjoyed it! It’s also the first I’ve read in the Westfield series (this is book 6 of the series) as well as my first time reading from Lydia Dare. There’s suspense, romance, humor and fun to be had within these pages. Best part, I was not lost since I’ve not read any others in the series. So anyone can/will enjoy this book as a stand alone or otherwise :)
Livi is a free spirited, open and considered unladylike woman that has no choice but to travel to her grandfathers home to ‘learn’ how to be a proper lady. She did not chose this, he father did so for her. Hurt, feeling alone, abandoned and out of place; she takes it all in stride the best she can. I really LOVE her character and feel she grows as the book goes on. She begins to listen more to advice (instead of brushing it off right away), takes more time to consider her actions and opens her eyes to new things. I believe all of this happens most when she realizes the effect having met Gray has on her :)
Gray is a strappingly handsome lycan male that (sadly) has been labeled as below (or beneath) the ton. Labels are barely (if ever) removed from ones person once they have them. Working on his manners and trying (not very willingly I must add) to become the gentlemen all expect of him proves most difficult, but at least he’s not to endure it on his own. One of his brother’s is also stuck with the lessons. One day when he and his brother escort his mother to a requested residence, he meets the most tempting creature he’s ever laid his eyes on. So beautiful, bold and all together tempting to him. But alas, they are of different levels, different places and it’s not proper for one such as him to even consider a Lady such as Livi. Will he let what should be stop what is?
Together Gray and Livi make jaws drop and shock the unshockable in and out of the ton. It’s a bit of a roller coaster ride and you will feel a great sense of anticipation for all moments that Livi and Gray are together, even when they are apart actually, in trouble and out of it. Their banter and refusal is most entertaining but what gets me the most is what ends up in the end. No one can stop what’s meant to be. No matter how hard one (or many) may try.
Any historical or paranormal reader will enjoy reading Wolfishly Yours.
