Matthew and Isaac are brothers who are also werewolves. They have lived in the same village for hundreds of years and the villagers know their secret. Neither of them has had a long term relationship due to the pain of watching the people they care about age and die before them. One full moon a sheep turns up mutilated and the town begins to suspect the brothers are to blame. While trying to prove their innocence they both also embark on new relationships that they didn't intend to get involved in.
This book was just alright for me. There wasn't anything wrong with the writing but it was really slow. I did not find myself engaged with the brothers and I didn't really care what happened to either of them. They mystery didn't make a lot of sense to me. I didn't see how these villagers and their ancestors held this secret all these years and then all of a sudden stopped trusting Matthew and Isaac. They had explanations but it just didn't seem believable.
I liked that this was a different take on the traditional werewolf/shifter that you usually see in paranormal romance books and I thought the fact that the author wrote both a m/f romance and a m/m romance in the same book was pretty unique. It was creative and I appreciated the effort. This was my first time reading this author and while this book was a miss for me there were enough positives that I will try something by her again at another time.
Werewolf brothers Matthew and Isaac have lived in the peaceful village of Eyam all their lives. The villagers know what happens every full moon and are happy to keep their secret. But their privacy comes at a cost--neither brother has taken a lover in almost four hundred years.
Then at the full moon, a sheep is slaughtered on Eyam Moor by what could only be an animal. A large, vicious animal. Even the brothers' staunchest supporters begin to have their doubts. Meanwhile Isaac is smitten by a handsome newcomer to the village, while a vivacious visitor is happy to offer Matthew her all.
As they indulge their lust, they must clear their names and convince their neighbors that they aren't also letting their baser instincts out to play.
