The Laird of the Sinclair clan, as well
as the Alpha of his Chrechte wolf pack, Talorc has just been
commissioned by his king to marry an Englishwoman. Talorc
and his clan know first hand the treachery of the English.
Talorc doesnít want to marry, but is unwilling to defy his
king. Travelling to the border between England and
Scotland, he comes face to face with his bride and while he
doesnít trust this beautiful woman, he and his inner wolf
desire her. And it is for this reason alone that Talorc
weds Abigail. To find out that she is his true mate is
something that he never expects, but knows not to question.
Until he trusts her, however, Talorc vows to be on his guard
with her Ė there is no way she can ever know what he is Ė
his wolf, however, feels quite differently.
Abigail has her own secrets to hide.
Deaf since a childhood illness when she was ten, she has
learned to read lips and function without anyone knowing of
her infirmity. Being told she is to be married is something
that Abigail never expects, even if it is just her sadistic
motherís way of getting rid of her. When she meets Talorc
before their wedding, she sees in him something that her
heart desires. Now if only she can just hide the fact that
she canít hear, all will be well - or so she thinks.
Abigail doesnít count on the mistrust she experiences when
she tries to make a life for herself in her new home.
Talorc is a familiar character to me
having read Moon Awakening, book one of this series.
Originally ordered to marry Abigailís sister, Talorc still
remembers being called a goat so he isnít ready for the
acceptance and sheer magnitude of the attraction he feels
for Abigail. She is everything angelic to him and so what
if she has her own idiosyncrasies. Their desire for each
other is instantaneous and the lovemaking between Talorc and
Abigail is heady and potent. They burn up the sheets, quite
nicely if I do say so myself. While he thought of Abigail
as an enemy, I could see his feelings for her change with
every scene until I was confident that he loved Abigail as
much as she loved him.
Moon Craving is the
sequel I have been waiting for with bated breath. It is
exactly what I needed to read and the fact that it is an
excellent novel makes me all the more excited to joyfully
recommend such a passionate and wonderful book. Fans of
Lucy Monroe will sign with romantic delight as the pages
come alive. Donít miss it!
