With Her Craving

Lunewulf, #10

With Her Craving is the first book in the Lunewolf series. This looks to be a promising series, set in a world where most humans are hostile towards the shifters, and sometimes their own kind turning on each other. This is a tumultuous story with some heartbreaking events that have happened to both of the main characters. It is loaded with action, and strewn with heartache.... in other words it was an entertaining read.

In the book, Lorie O'Clare weaves an intricate tale of suspense, action and drama that kept this reader captivated. The author did an excellent job with the character development, obviously laying a lot of background for the new series. I will say that it was hard reading about some of the events that had happened in their lives. To be sure, this story had its share of angst and drama.

I liked Jarvis and Katrin, as well as the supporting characters. Katrin was the kind of heroine that I enjoy the most, she stood up for herself, though she was caught between a rock and a hard place. She didn't like having to hide things about herself. Even knowing that certain secrets could get her killed, this gal wasn't about to lay down and take it. I admired her for honoring her father and realizing that she couldn't hide that part of herself. Got to say though, she was reckless at times and did some things that didn't make sense to me.

Jarvis was a typical alpha male. He was sexy and possessive, protective of his mate, and I liked that in a hero. But he was prejudiced toward Katrin for most of the book. I did not like his attitude, but understood where the author was going with that play. Redemption is what it's all about. He did some things, said some stupid things that hurt his mate. Then he inevitably found his redemption and saw how wrong he'd been, just in the nick of time. That's good reading folks.

Overall, I found this book to be very well written and entertaining. I spent a relaxing afternoon reading it and am now looking forward to the next book. Jaeger and Leisa searching for the lost sister maybe?

With Her Craving is a great paranormal read that readers are bound to enjoy.

Book Blurb for With Her Craving

Cariboo werewolf shifter Jarvis Alger must be crazy. He’s fallen for a Malta werewolf—the most-despised breed, due to a rumored penchant for violence. The more he tries to get Katrin out of his mind, the more he wants to drag her into his den for blistering-hot lovemaking. And when Jarvis proves he cares about her, not her background, she quickly succumbs.

Katrin Keller actually is only half Malta werewolf, but she’s accustomed to the hate thrown at her by ignorant Cariboo and humans. That hatred killed her parents, and sent her littermates Leisa and Magda on the run. But the law doesn’t care about her half-breed status. Even the Cariboo cops will stop at nothing to eliminate her.

Torn between the man she loves and the heritage she won’t ignore, Katrin may have to choose between Jarvis and the very blood that runs through her veins. But as their passion grows, she’s certain of one thing—she’s willing to fight for both.
