Review ~ A Handful of Wolf by Sofia Grey

Handful of WolfBook Title: A Handful of Wolf
by Sofia Grey
Publisher: Liquid Silver Books
Reviewer: ReadingRN

Blurb:
It was supposed to be a pleasure trip … see the sights, meet some girls … But when Sasha finds himself caught between a wolf uprising and the over-protective brothers of his would-be mate, his vacation turns from fun to deadly, fast. The Snowdonia Wolves are back for another exciting adventure in A Handful of Wolf, Book 2 of Sofia Grey’s sexy paranormal romance series.

Sasha’s not a looking-to-the-future kind of guy, but he’s made an exception with his plans to travel and meet lots of pretty girls. Too bad his Pack Alpha, fate, and reality have other ideas about his trip abroad. He’s pretty sure he didn’t sign on to be a diplomat for the Snowdonia Wolf Pack. Or to find a Mate. Especially not a human Mate.

Megan knows better than to let a sweet-talking charmer get under her skin, but Sasha’s sexy playfulness is making her forget all her rules. Except one: she’s not willing to risk her heart by falling in love. The gorgeous boy from Wales can only be a fling, especially since her over-protective brothers hate him on sight.

In the midst of a wolf uprising, a hesitant Mate, and Megan’s complicated family ties, Sasha learns that sometimes impulsiveness is dangerous and even lethal. Can he show Megan why they belong together before it all comes crashing down around him and he loses his Mate forever?

Cara’s Review:
Ask and ye shall receive! I wanted the second book in this series, and I’ve found it, read it, and am now happy to review it for you! The bad news? Now I have to wait patiently for the next book. Because this book was another win!

Sasha is a bit out of his element, being sent over to New Zealand to talk with the wolf pack over there, and meets his very human mate, Megan. Sasha is a bit of a sweet man, strong and alpha, but he just melts around Megan. Megan is a pretty kick butt character as well, but took a little bit of convincing to believe the whole shifter thing. She comes with some personal baggage as far as relationships go, so trust is another element to deal with. Side note: don’t you love it when they think their mate is a lunatic? The whole, “Don’t upset the crazy person” dance makes me laugh. There is a whole lot of things going on in New Zealand, and I can’t wait to find out more about Connor and his pack. What the heck does Purity mean?

Anyway, I would highly recommend giving this book a read, I thoroughly enjoyed it! You don’t have to read a Wolf at the Door to know what is going on in this book, but you should anyway, because it’s awesome!

About In Your Arms

In Your Arms Merry FarmerLily Singer has never belonged. Taken from her tribe as a child and raised in a white man’s school, she no longer has a place in either world. Teaching has become her life. When that life is threatened by rumors and prejudice after a string of robberies, she must turn for help to the one man who spells disaster for her carefully ordered existence. Will he save her or steal her heart?

Christian Avery, Justice of the Peace, is used to having things his way. Cold Springs is his responsibility, and when its citizens blame the local Indian population for the mysterious robberies, it’s up to him to restore order and maintain calm. The one person who refuses to follow his lead is the beautiful, native-born Lily. Her defiance turns his life upside down.

But when town gossip shifts from robberies to romance after a foolish indiscretion, Lily’s job and reputation are on the line. She must choose between the only life she has ever known and the only place she has ever felt at home, in Christian’s arms.

New Release ~ Once Upon a Montana Christmas ~ Alanna Lucas

Beautiful womanOnce Upon a Montana Christmas
by Alanna Lucas

Blurb:
HOLIDAY SURPRISES
Miss Eva Kenward does not want to spend another Christmas alone. Leaving Queen Victoria’s
England, she journeys to America in search of an uncle but finds herself on the rugged frontier of
Montana. And with no money and no acquaintances, the rudest man she has ever met is the one
she must engage. Especially considering the precious bundle in her arms.

“Hunt” Strauss has been fooled before by beauty. So when the ravishing young woman arrives
on his doorstep, he suspects her of ulterior motives. But perhaps the baby she holds truly is his
kin…and when Miss Kenward finds herself stranded after a hotel fire, he reluctantly agrees to
help. Bringing her to his sprawling ranch, Hunt tries to keep his distance. But the enticing
woman and her enthusiasm for the season soon prove that fairy tale love stories—and holiday
wishes—really can come true.

Excerpt:
“Oh! It’s here!” Eva heard Aunt Carol bellow from downstairs. She gathered Lily in her
arms and went down to see what all the fuss was about.
Eva arrived downstairs just in time to see Hunt and Mr. Walker carry a large crate into the
house and place it beside another.
Aunt Carol’s face was bright with excitement. “Oh, dearie, you are just in time.”
“Just in time for what?” Eva said as she edged closer to the crate.
“Christmas decorations, tinsel, and treats from my brother in Germany!” As Aunt Carol
explained about the contents of the crates, Hunt and Mr. Walker pried them open, revealing
wrapped packages and tins full of fragrant spices.
Eva sat down on the floor with a very curious Lily on her lap. When she opened a tin with
the embossment of a German landscape, the scent of cloves filled the air. The next package Eva
pulled contained a smooth wood block engraving of a Christmas tree. “This is beautiful,” she
said as she admired the engraving.
Eva was surprised when Hunt began to explain the significance of the wood engraving.
“It’s a cookie mold. We use the molds to make decorative Lebkuchen, a type of spiced cookie,
and ornaments for the Christmas tree. It has been a tradition in my family for many generations.
My Oma taught my siblings and I how to make them.”
She could hear the pride in his voice. Despite his tough exterior, underneath it all was a
sensitive man. Not for the first time, Eva wondered what had hardened him.
“Did you have any family traditions, dearie?”
Eva did not know how to answer that question without raising sympathy from Aunt Carol.
Her family was not close and they would never dream of sitting on the floor, rummaging through
crates. She could hear her stepmother now: “That is why we have servants. Let them get their
hands dirty.” Looking away, she shook her head without a word, and continued on with
unpacking their traditions, wishing desperately she had some of her own.

For generations Levi’s family had guarded a sacred glen in the mountains. Still far from man this isolated area was a favorite spot of his grandfather. Levi grew up listening to his tales and fell in love without ever having stepped foot there.
Now Levi’s family, led by his grandmother, wanted to sell the land. With only his grandfather and Levi against it, Levi has to prove to the rest of the family why they needed to continue their guardianship. Believing in his grandfather’s tales despite himself, Levi went armed with his camera and his well-known expertise behind the lens and headed out for proof.
Providing that proof and protecting the secrets of the glen from the world, Gaia needs to convince Levi to continue that protection. Daphnaie, the embodiment of his every dream, is sent to show him why, stealing his heart in the process to save her world.
