HAIR OF THE DOG
Paranormal Erotic Romance
Rating: 4 Cups
Ivy Fountainbleau is an ordinary-looking woman working a dead end job at a chain hotel until recently. She has lived a sheltered childhood with an extremely eccentric mother and is determined to be as normal as possible.
Grant Grayson is the mayor of Mystic Springs and a widower. A drunk driver has taken his beloved wife from him, and he is sure he will never love again. He has thrown himself into running the town and resort. He is also a werewolf.
Mystic Springs is in trouble. The spring giving name to the town is drying up and the inhabitants of this remote sanctuary for paranormal beings are worry. Ivy may just be the woman described in an ancient prophesy. The one who gets to be her mate will control the town, though all will benefit if she stays. The wolves have been in charge since the beginning, but Grant believes he is only destined to love once, until he meets Ivy. Ivy is torn. She has a job she excels at and a man she may love. Too bad this man is still devoted to a dead wife, while the town is full of some pretty eccentric and unusual characters that get furry when the mood strikes them.
This is a well-written tale of a woman who has never really fit in anywhere yet finds a place to call home, even if filled with werewolves, bears and deer among other creatures. I really like Ivy. She has courage and spunk. Grant is a sexy alpha wolf with some serious issues, and it has taken a little longer for me to like him as much. His dedication to his late wife is admirable, but hurting Ivy over and over is not. I love the town of Mystic Springs. Its inhabitants has made me laugh more than once. This is not your run of the mill werewolf romance. The author has put her own unique spin on the genre.
