Review by Cherokee Rose
Carlan Nashel is a sensible, responsible, intelligent woman. She doesn't believe in spirits or paranormal wolves. She doesn't! So why can't she shake the feeling that her brother's spirit is watching over her, and that he wants something more than for her to take care of their aging parents?
She returns to her childhood home to make arrangements for her family, and visit the Gorge where her brother died to say her last goodbyes. But a storm drives her into the trailer and the arms of the man who took her virginity in high school. A man who, like her brother, was irrevocably shattered by these mountains.
Storms rage, inside and out, but Carlan and Brett will have to accept more than each other again; they'll have to accept the wolf spirits, including Carlan's brother, to survive the howling and learn to love.
Carlan is certain she has cracked under the pressure when she hears the ghostly voice of her dead brother Skye in her mind. When she lost her brother, she was left to care for their ailing parents on her own and stress is a daily occurrence. Several months have passed since the accident that took his life, yet he is demanding she return to the very spot he died? I had to sympathize with her plight as Carlan wonders if she's gone 'round the bend. It takes a strong woman to face the things she did and come out on the good side of sane.
Brett is being plagued by his own issues. After a logging accident that almost left him disabled, he returns to the woods seeking peace and tranquility. A damaged hero, it was great to see his world shaken up by someone he'd let slip through his fingers once before.
What they end up finding is more than either of them ever expected. Carlan and Brett were high school sweethearts that parted ways becausse they were headed down different paths in life, each of them with a different goal in mind. Yet, the instant they reunite, the passion between them swells like a tidal wave. However, reality sets in very quickly afterward. There is no way the two of them can have a future together, or can they?
Wind Howl is a very hot tale of second chances. Ms. Harper is a no holds barred storyteller, giving us plenty of heat with heart. I recommend this book to anyone who is enjoys a tale of reunited lovers. This hot tale is a page turner that makes it impossible to put the book down. Ms. Harper provides an intriguing story that you won’t mind reading more than once. You need to read this one.
