Lord Jeremy North's curse is to become a werewolf during every full moon, turning into a bloodthirsty monster that kills with no remorse. When he finds a woman nearly frozen upon his doorstep, his sense of honor compels him to help her, even at the risk he might kill her himself.
Lillian Merriweather hadn't planned to get caught in a blizzard while traveling the English countryside. Nor had she planned on finding refuge in a house full of secrets. But Lillian has secrets of her own. And what she's running from is not far behind...
I absolutely adored, The Witch and the Werewolf! There were no lulls, rather a fast paced story filled with intrigue. We get a wonderful historical setting, along with paranormal elements; werewolves, magic and witches.
Lillian is trying to escape her captor, not thinking her plan through and getting caught in a white-out blizzard. She ends up on North’s doorstep, frozen to the bone. This is not an erotic read, but the sexual tension was off the charts. North continues to be a gentleman, refusing to act on his desires for the beautiful Lillian. His problems are deeper than his overwhelming attraction to his guest…the full moon is fast approaching.
The characters were so likable. North was rugged and tempting. Lillian was strong and didn’t deny her feelings, but acted on instinct. Even the man servant was a great character, helping his master through the dreadful change each month.
Tricia Schneider had earned a new fan in this reviewer! Her writing flowed with poetic mastery, keeping me glued to the pages from the beginning until ‘the end’. She created an atmosphere ripe with desire; from a look, to an innocent touch, to the grand finale, the romance was divine. I highly recommend paranormal romance fans to pick up their copy!
