He could never lose control…

Dashiel Thorpe, Earl of Brimsworth, has spent his life fighting the wolf within him. But when the full moon rises, Dash is helpless. A chance encounter with Caitrin Macleod on a moonlit night inadvertently binds the two together irrevocably, and Dash’s impulsiveness plunges them both into a nightmare.

She never saw him coming…

Caitrin Macleod is no quiet country lass, but a witch with remarkable abilities. But when it comes to Dashiel, she’s as helpless to fight his true nature as he is. Her senses overwhelmed, she runs back to the safety and security of her native Scotland.

But Dashiel is determined to follow her—she’s the only woman who can free him from a fate worse than death. And Caitrin will ultimately have to decide whether she’s running from danger, or true love

My Review

 The Taming Of The Wolf is the fourth in the Westfield Wolves series, and would probably be ranked as one of my favorites so far of this author. Dashiel Thorpe, is a sexy hero, who has you wrapped around his finger from the first chapter. Dash is definitely everything you love about a hero, and I loved the conflict this couple is faced with. I found this story to be endearing and full of charm and sensual tension. Dashiel Thorpe, when he first meets Cait, bites her and without fully realizing it he claims her as his mate. When she flees, he follows her up to Scotland, and a dance of seduction begins. I loved Cait, she has spunk and is very creative in her ways of dealing with Dash, and it was such fun reading their story. It was fun, adventurous, witty and riveting. The story completely draws you in, the powerful connection that is evident between this couple is intoxicating. The characters are endearing. This story is packed with pure sexy fun with a  hint of sensuality, and a perfect blend of historical setting and paranormal romance that will capture your heart!!!  A GEM OF A READ!!

First Line 
Caitrin Macleod vowed never to step foot in England again–or at the very least, to keep her distance from Lycans in the future.

Favorite Quote 
” I dinna ask ye ta come.”
“But I came anyway because you’re my intended mate,” he growled. “I know it. You know it. Even your father knows it. So stop being difficult,”
