[ARC Review] - Bride of the Wolf

Title: Bride of the Wolf
Author: Jennifer St. Giles
Series: Shadowmen
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Year: 2009

I received this book for review from the author.

Summary and Blurb: When the heroic werewolf Navarre is trapped in the twilight realm, his Shadowmen comrades are unable to rescue him. Only a passionate woman with a spirit as wild as his own can set him free...

Oil heiress Marissa Vasquez fled the jungles of Belize to avoid becoming a pawn in her vicious uncle's wicked schemes. Though she has found temporary sanctuary in little Twilight, Tennessee, only in her dreams does she taste freedom. At night, her spirit intertwines with a magnificent black wolf, and they run together under the glow of a forest moon. When a wounded stranger is brought to the camp where she is hiding, she glimpses in his eyes the mysterious being who has been the partner of her visions. But before she can explore her strange reaction to this man, they are kidnapped and imprisoned once again.

Navarre is a shape shifting Shadowman, captured by the evil Vladarian vampire who hopes to control Marissa. Injured and blind, he struggles to regain his warrior's strength as they fight for their freedom -- and their lives. Together, their spirits form a powerful link matched only by the passion they discover in each other's arms. But can a mortal woman attain true love with a man who is half wolf? And will their enemies give them time to find an answer?

Thoughts: Marissa and Navarre were introduced in early books. Their story began in Kiss of Darkness and continues in this fourth installment. The battle between good and evil continues... For me this book was a bit darker then the rest. Both characters have been through so much that I didn't see how it would work out But to see them finally come together was great. While this book was enjoyable, for me Kiss of Darkness was the better book. If you haven't given this series a try I highly recommend it. Especially if you have a soft spot for werewolves.

Score: 3 Stars

  1. Great review, Anna. These covers are beautiful. I'm assuming the series should be read as a whole and the books would be good as stand alones?

  2. Thanks Barbara! I don't think they'd be good stand alones. I would suggest reading the series in order.

  3. Great Review Anna!

    Congratulations to MichelleG. :)

    The only reason I didn't enter your contest was because I haven't read any of the other books. I am going to add the first of the series to my list though because it sounds really good!!

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

    Warm Regards

  4. I have not read this series yet. Good review!! :)

  5. I just ordered the first book in this series from B&N last week. I'm glad you recommend the series!

  6. Thanks Lea!

    Thanks Mandi!

    Tracy, I hope you enjoy it. It's one of my favorites in the series. :)

  7. Dear Anna and All thank you for finding my Shadowmen intriguing. I hope you enjoy them. I am so sorry that I didn't get her until now. It has been a very difficult day and the smile you brought to me really warmed my heart. So thank you all. You can always email me any questions! Will check back later to see if anyone has a question they want to post tonight. Again my apologies and my thanks

  8. Hi Jennifer, Thanks for stopping by. I think the biggest question people have been asking me is if the series needs to be read in order.

    I would say yes, but really that's just me. I'm a stickler about reading things in order. I hate being lost. LOL!

  9. Yes. I would read them in order! The revealing of the overall arch in the battle against good and evil, and a lot of the inside jokes will be better that way. they are Touch a Dark Wolf, Lure of the Wolf, Kiss of Darkness, then Bride of the Wolf.
    Thank you again
