Heart of the Wolf by D.B. Reynolds
Kathryn Avinger is a werewolf, daughter of the North American Alpha. Young, beautiful and obedient to her Alpha’s will, Kathryn was married off ten years ago to a much older and wealthy human, finding herself neatly trapped in an abusive prison of money and privilege.
Renjiro Roesner is a powerful and charismatic wolf, an enforcer for Kathryn’s father … and, once upon a time, Kathryn’s promised husband. Returning from a mission to find Kathryn married and gone, Renjiro left the country, bitter and betrayed. But when someone tries to murder Kathryn at her husband’s funeral, Renjiro comes home to protect the only woman he ever loved.
Racing against time, their long-simmering passion flaring hotter than ever, Renjiro is determined that this time Kathryn will be his. But first, he’ll have to keep her alive long enough to claim her.
Short but sweet (and sexy) story. Even at only 89 pages long, you still love Ren and Kathryn. Ren has that sexy-hot dominant male thing going on that I love!
Since it's a short story, I can't really comment on the pacing or such but I read it in the hour before I went to work and didn't want to put it down.
Great story and only cost, like, a quid so well worth it. Get it from Bookstrand and don't be put off with the checkout process. It's all very confusing and a bit too long for my liking. I like click and enter your details and you're done.
