Book & Author Details:

The Wolf’s Lover by Samantha MacLeod
Published by: Vestal Valley Press
Publication date: February 21st 2018
Genres: Urban Fantasy, Romance

Wolf loverKaren McDonald buried her past.

Five years after her divorce, Karen is a wildlife biologist studying wolves in Yellowstone National Park. But when the wolf she tranquilizes turns into a man – a man she recognizes from the recurring dreams which have haunted her for years – her rational, scientific world gives way to something stranger and more dangerous.

The man is Vali, son of Loki. He was imprisoned thousands of years ago, cursed to live inside a wolf’s body. Now Vali tells Karen he’s being hunted…and he’s hunting as well.

Because something has awoken beneath the volcanic caldera of Yellowstone, an ancient power that could spell the end of everything, unless Karen is willing to risk her life, and unearth the secrets of her past, to save her world.


Let me ask you a question.  How do you like your norse mythology?  Do you prefer it a la Marvel universe?  Or with a twist.  Maybe with an erotic element.

If the latter of those choices is your speed, then this book is for you.

The way that Ms MacLeod spins these tales is amazing.  Always relevant to today’s setting yet with an underlying sizzle and element of fantasy that allows you to be transported into the story.

This is no exception.  I enjoyed everything about this story.  Even the parts that were tough to read.

Ms MacLeod does it again.

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
