My father handed my mother to the men who burned her on a pyre.
I was left with my Gran, tucked away inside a cabin in the Welsh woods.
My mother’s books were all I had left of the brave woman I once idolized.
Soon, the woods began to call to me, the dark depths seeming more inviting than my own reality.
It wasn’t until I awakened that I realized just what my curiosity had done.
Before me stood not a beast, but a man. A man so fierce, that I would willingly forsake my God, just to worship him.
Exiled, for murder. All because of the beast inside me. Blood, war, and women roused him; the full moon stilled him.
I did not hunt these woods for women; but the men in the black coats do. I pay no mind to them because they leave offerings at my doorstep. I am no God, but I enjoyed being revered.
My thoughts never strayed from day-to-day tasks, until the day I saw the fox-haired girl.
She was to be mine, and I would shed as much blood as Odin would allow to make that so.
Oh Miss Savvy Rose! You know the way to my little black heart.
This book had everything I desire in a dark romance read. Wickedly delightful woman, check. Hot alpha man, check. The heat between the two is off the charts. Once I was done, I was craving for more.
The growth in which this author’s writing has grown, is amazing and impressive. This is author not to sleep on! She has a way with words and this book is one you don’t want to miss. Especially if you love dark romance like I do! I give it 5 stars.
