Regency England Has Gone To The Wolves!

It Takes A Beast…

Grayson Hadley is in his own special hell-being treated like a wayward pup by the tutor employed to turn him into a true gentleman. So when he meets a hot-blooded American beauty with the mark of a Lycan, he’s only too glad to slip his leash.

To Bring This Lady To Heel

Accustomed to running wild in the swamps of Louisiana, Miss Liviana Mayeux is shipped off to her grandfather’s in London to learn a thing or two about polite society. At first she scoffs at the English Lycans’ apparent tameness. Little does Livi realize how very close she is to unleashing the passion that lies just beneath the surface…

Victoria’s Review:
I’m a big fan of Lydia Dare’s work, and have been since the first of the Regency Wolf books came out a few years back. The latest series, with the Hadley family, is just as good as the original trilogy.

This offered a view of more than just the English Lycans, bringing in Liviana Mayeux from Louisiana, who is the daughter of a Lycan, with Lycan brothers. It was great learning about more Lycan families beyond the ones we’ve already met in the Dare series. I keep hoping we’ll get a glimpse of other shifter races. Livi was a spirited young woman, and I really respected the fact that she had had an unconventional childhood and resented the heck out of her father for sending her now to England to become a “proper young lady”. Livi’s grandfather was a bit of a horse’s backside, but under the circumstances, I can understand why he’d still be peeved with Livi’s father.

The interplay between Grayson and Livi was great, and I loved that it wasn’t a case of insta-lust & immediate “I will have her”, which is so common in many Regency romances. Oh, certainly, Grayson is a wolf and definitely likes to chase, but that wasn’t all he was. He wants to make more of his life, what with the gaming hell that the Hadley brothers are putting together, and then his willingness to actually do more with his life by accepting Livi’s father’s offer at the end (which I won’t say much about) certainly spoke well of him, considering the general attitude of those born to the noble class in the period about real work.

There are quite a few members more of the Hadley family (and hopefully we’ll get to the Viscount & Sophie story SOON!!!!!!!), plus now the Mayeux family, so hopefully these wonderful wolf stories will continue. And, Ms. Dare, if you’re reading this, pretty please get more vamp stories. I want to know more about the vamps. :-)
