Truro Simpson is confused. What the hell is going on in the sleepy town of Ludlum? One moment her life is quiet and boring and the next she’s having orgasmic sex with a hot, tattooed stranger and odd people are turning up talking about werewolves and soul mates. Do the wolves of Ludlum have something to do with that? And does any of it really matter when she is having the best sex of her life?
Every fifty years, a clan of wolves seeks new mates. Murphy Green is a werewolf. He is in Ludlum for Truro, his soul mate. The problem is the lady doesn’t believe it. That’s okay. His plan is to seduce her with sweet words and hard cock until she’s as breathless with need and as hungry to touch and taste as he is.
Truro is curvy, luscious and self-conscious — about everything. But when Murphy Green invades her life with all he is, she can’t think about anything except the next clashing of their bodies.
This fun, flirty novel has it all. It has true love, soul mates, fun interludes, sexy characters and a female lead (Truro) that has been burned by men and has no interest in getting hurt again.
Truro is snarky, outspoken, and witty; she uses all of her wily attitude to guard herself from any real relationship. Not-quite-settled in Ludlow, she’s been on a walk-a-bout for two years in the small town, listlessly searching for nothing — and everything — all at the same time.
The story opens in a hot interlude between Murphy and Truro — she’s convinced it’s a one-fer (code for a one night stand) and he’s convinced they are soul mates… talk about two people seeing one event totally differently! Truro’s inner dialogue throughout the story had me laughing, crying and shaking my head in agreement (being a cellulite-hating, curvy woman myself).
Murphy — our werewolf yum-tastic male lead - is just what I wanted in a lead. He is determined, masculine, flirtatious, and well-grounded. But, most importantly, he’s loyal. In many ways, he is absolutely the perfect Werewolf-mate and he makes no secret of his instant affection for Truro and all her faults. (If we could all be so lucky!)
Romance, love, lust, passion and a Fifty-year-old grudge lace every page of this quick read. I thoroughly enjoyed the character development, sexual tension, and seeing Truro embrace, not only her curves, but her flight or fight killer instinct. Truro rocks and where, oh where, is my *own* Murphy? This is a must read for anyone that enjoys paranormal that is not gratuitous.
