I love a good regency novel. This one is even more fun because of the paranormal aspect. The thing I really enjoyed the most is that there is a serious side to this. The wolves are not outlandish but just a normal part of the stories. ( )

The Wolf Next Door
3 Stars

Synopsis:
Prisca Hawthorne has had it in for William Westfield ever since their failed elopement. She is convinced that she can never trust him again and is determined to make him miserable. William has always loved Prisca and hopes she will forgive him one day, but when a rival Lycan appears on the scene, William realizes that time is running out and he will have to do something to claim the woman he has always wanted.

Review:
I've wanted to read this book since meeting Prisca in A Certain Wolfish Charm but the actual experience is frustrating and disappointing.

Prisca and Will's incessant bickering is more annoying than endearing and their inability to communicate and be honest with each other is simply irritating. A conflict based on a silly misunderstanding (which is only hinted at and never fully fleshed out) is not a particularly enjoyable plot device, and the reason I no longer read contemporary romances.

Prisca comes across as a spoiled and petulant child and Will is not much better. Moreover, the constant interruptions to their intimate moments (while serving a purpose at the end) are forced and detract from the couple's chemistry.

The secondary characters are one of the book's saving graces, especially the banter and interaction between Prisca's brothers. In addition, despite his feral behavior, Dashiel Thorpe is an intriguing and sympathetic character, and it be interesting to see what happens when he meets his match in Caitrin.

In sum, this book fails to live up to its potential and the only reason to read it is for the continuity within the series. ( )

Eh. I don't know what happened with the failed elopement - we get to hear Will's version, but not Prisca's. But at this point I want to shake both of them and make them _talk_ to each other. Sheesh! I don't know why Will thinks that showing how he can pleasure a woman will improve Prisca's view of him, honestly. And while I can understand her fighting shy of him, she fights ferociously at some points and goes floppy at others (not all related to whether he's touching her). I'm more interested in Brimstone, actually. At least he has reasons for his inability to deal with people, especially women. I'll look for that book, but I'm rapidly losing interest in the series.

I must say that this was my favourite book of the 3. Why, well everyone that have read them know about William and Prisca, their constant banter and how they seem to loathe each other, but at the same time they do seem to like each other...a lot. With that in mind I started this book.


We finally get an explanation why Prisca takes every opportunity she gets so verbally abuse William. There was a failed elopement years ago, and neither got over that. It is obvious that they still have feelings for each other, but Prisca does not trust him, and William is a notorious rake by now.


Her brothers are finally tired of her and has a plan, marry her off to William. But there is another suitor, and he is one big bad wolf. William will not back down now. It's all or nothing, and he is not ready to loose her.


Like I said before I could nto wait to read Prisca's and William's story because they are at each other all the time. I was wondering how they with their constant bickering could see past that and fall in love. Well I can tell you that is not an easy road. They are still bickering, and the tension is running high in this book.


Prisca is a nice heroine who is not afraid to speak her mind, even if that leads her into trouble. And William, oh he is such a flirt, but with such a good heart that it just makes me wanna hug him, and the smack him over the head.


This is a fun book, you know it with those two, she is always at his throat, and he is trying to seduce her one way or the other. There is the merry hunt, and what happens afterwards. And then there is the big bad wolf lurking in the shadows, wanting Prisca for himself.


These two made this book the best so far. It had something for everyone, werewolves (yay), damsels in distress, witty remarks, and some lines that nearly killed me from laughing. For example when she asks why he always has something in his pocket. That, lol, has to be read.


A good werewolf story set in the regency era, and a nice conclusion to the Westfield story. All brothers had something special, but I do think I am starting to like William the best after this.



Tensions are running high, when a wicked werewolf finally meets his match, and passion can't be denied no longer. ( )

This was probably my least favorite of the first three books in this Westfield Wolves series, primarily because it took forever for Will and Prisca to consummate their marriage! All the teasing going on through the whole thing, the constant bickering and then all the delays drove me crazy! I didn't like the way he lied about what happened in the cabin between them either. Then at the final ending when he claims her it seemed - eep - anticlimactic? Overall though I still liked it, there is something about this series I enjoy and it's a quick read. ( )
