Bride McTierney has had it with men. They're cheap, self-centered, and never love her for who she is. But though she prides herself on being independent, deep down, she still yearns for a knight in shining armor. She just never expected her knight in shining armor to have a shiny coat of fur.
Deadly and tortured, Vane Kattalakis isn't what he seems. Most women lament that their boyfriends are dogs. In Bride's case, hers is a wolf. A Were-Hunter wolf. Wanted dead by his enemies, Vane isn't looking for a mate. But the Fates have marked Bride as his. Now he has three weeks to either convince Bride that the supernatural is real or he will spend the rest of his life neutered - something no self-respecting wolf can accept. But how does a wolf convince a human to trust him with her life when his enemies are out to end his? In the world of the Were-Hunters, it really is dog-eat-dog. And only one alpha male can win.

"More character driven than her previous Dark-Hunter novels, Kenyon's latest is a nice change of pace yet still chock-full of the quirky humor, complex fantasy, and searing passion that her readers love. This book's success, however, appropriately lies with Bride and Vane. It's been said of Kenyon that she knows men, but she really knows women and all our secret fears and hidden desires." (Booklist)

Yes. Interesting and fun.
The story felt real. Complex characterization.
I had to like Furry. Her veterinarian father was intriguing. Snotty sister a close third. Come to think of it many of the secondary characters were interesting.
It was sweet, straightforward and endearing. I'm not a sentimentalist and often roll my eyes over sappy story lines.
My first book by this author. Bought it on sale because it looked light and fun. it was that but more. It's a "feel good" book without being sugary or simplistic. Story had a few twists and turns. Characters were developed and dimensional. Delivered a solid good story that was well written. Don't overlook this one if you like a straightforward story that does not leave you feeling depressed or icky. The whole fantasy supernatural thing supported the plot and was not the main feature. It was a simple and charming love story with a bit of adventure and intrigue tossed in. Really good for driving or doing chores. I liked it and you don't need to enjoy this genre to find the story charming.
I can't stress enough how good a job Fred Berman does reading these books. I especially love the way he reads Simi and Ash and I hope to hear from them in every book. He does a great job bringing every character to life.
I really enjoyed the fact that this novel involved a wolf instead of a dark hunter in the lead role. I also enjoyed how the author found another non-typical but completely unique female lead. When I know a series has 20 plus books in it I worry that at some point the new creative ideas will give out and it will become reading the same book over and over again. With this author I don't have to worry about that I am blown away by each book.
Yes, he is awesome. I can't stand that someone else narrated the first couple books in this series but I am so grateful that someone made the switch to Mr. Berman.
Vane meeting Bride's family.
Since I wasn't specifically asked I will just say that yes, this book is worth a credit.
Loving my life and hanging out with my four grandchildren!
Narrater Fred Berman did a wonderful job with the character Vane. His voice really became the character and the emotional level was right on the money.
Vane! Such a strong man and when he meets Bride...oh my gosh! What woman wouldn't want someone like Vane to walk into her life and be a real hero! I Love him as much as I love Asheron and Zerek!
Oh yes! He does a great job each time. He is one of my favorite narraters.
Yes and that's just what I did! I spent all day in front of my computer with this book! Also put this one to disk and mp3 to take with me!
I love the whole Dark-Hunters series! Sherrilyn Kenyon does a wonderful job with each story. You will find yourself cheering for one character or another, but that is to be expected! These are books worth buying!
How romantic! Can't wait to find out who Furry's mate is. I listened to Bad Moon Rising and this fell right in line with it. Loved the narrator. Looking forward to more. Enjoy, I did.
I really enjoy this book because it gives us big bones girls hope that there is a prince out there for us.This book has the right idea of relationship.
This story reminds us all of the true power of love. Vane loves Bride no matter what, he breaks the mold and shows her that with love everything is posible. Vane teaches Bride that in order to love you must love yourself faults and all. This is top ten in my book library.
Overall the story was great and it's one of my favorites... but dear gods, how many times did she have to use the word "masculine" as an adjective. Now, my reaction to the word "masculine" is the same for people who dislike the word "moist."
Paranormal-urban fantasy book lover!
I think this is my fav so far of the series. I like how Kenyon put in an overweight, or full figured woman instead of the typical stick figure perfect body woman finding the perfect body man and fall in love etc...
I love Fred Berman as the narrator, him and Holter Graham sound so familiar that it's great they both narrate the series.
Worth a credit - yes
