Thessa the Tomboy loves playing practical jokes. She and her friend, Bren, come up with the perfect plan to scare the villagers…a faux wolf attack.

Thessa doesn’t know that two werewolves are in attendance during her tall tales. They decide to pay her back for her prank. But, once they get a good look at her and the courage she shows defending herself, Caelan and Raynd decide they want to take her. Their instinct tells them there’s more to the tomboy than tall tales.

When Thessa cries wolf, no one comes to her aid, thinking it another of her pranks. The werewolves whisk her away to their mountaintop castle to show her a trick or two. Will she escape them or succumb to the wicked tricks they play on her body once they have her under their control?

We have all heard the story about the boy who cried wolf, but when Thessa cries wolf she isn't wary of a violent attack. No, they come up with a more devious plan to attack her emotionally and sexually until she willingly gives herself to the big bad wolfs.

Caelan and Raynd are two big bad wolves that you want to take a bite out of you. They seem to complement one another perfectly. It's clear they've been seducing women into their beds for years and when they focus their attention on Thessa she has no choice but succumb to their advances. The author really exhibited the mindset of the historical time period in these characters. I enjoyed how Caelan and Raynd appeared to be monsters that plague Thessa’s dreams, yet they are actually her knights in shining armor. This added depth to the storyline as well as their character.

The fact that the story really seem to stay true to the historical theme made the story creative. From the town tavern, to the mysterious castle on the hill the author created a great mental picture of the period. I also think the historical theme added a unique and intriguing aspect to the story that contemporary stories cannot offer. The authors ability to transfer me to a different place, in a different time, made the story that much more enjoyable. The story seemed to just flow and when I was forced to take a break from reading I found myself eager to get back to the story, and that's why I would recommend The Virgin Who Cried Wolf to others.
