What happens when one is both Hunter and Wolf?

You know it’s going to be a bad day when you get shot at—twice. Hunter Wolfsbane, Duke of Haverstone, also known as “The Wolf” is having exactly one of those days. Things take a turn for the worse when he’s notified that he’ll be acquiring a partner for his newest mission. The rub?
He’s kissed her—twice.

In his defense, she was already ruined, but it doesn’t help matters that she’s the sister-in-law to his best friend–perhaps his only friend.

And how does a woman protect her heart from one who has the power to destroy every-thing she holds dear?

Lady Gwendolyn has only one thing on her mind–Finding the Wolf and strangling him where he stands. Unfortunately, she needs him to complete one final mission for the Crown and to keep her family safe. It has absolutely nothing to do with her attraction to him, or his golden eyes, or his wicked smile, or the fact that he’s convinced to keep his heart encased in ice—that is, if he still possesses one.


Review: I love fairytales to me they are just so…magical with the added bonus of romance and of course a HEA. So, I decided to give this series a try. I simply enjoyed Ms. Van Dyken’s take on Red Riding Hood. She used the premise of spies for the main characters Red and Wolf or in the real world Gwen and Hunter.

The element of fun that she added to this story had the characters waltzing around each other just as you would expect Red and Wolf to do. The sparring that went on within the conversations between these two was witty and very entertaining. I enjoyed the added element of sexy without going overboard…clean alluding to what was going on leaving it all to your imagination; which I like.
Ms. Van Dyken has a natural way of telling a story that brings it to life which makes for a very interesting and entertaining story. I was kept driven to stay up and finish the story well past my bedtime.

Grab a glass of wine and settle in for a simply enjoyable story of Red Riding Hood.
