Review by Amber I.
Helen thought she could tame the wolf but instead he taught her how to live again.
Dumped by his girlfriend, Gareth doesn’t think things can get any worse until he’s captured by some vampires. But he’s not about to become an all-you-can-eat-buffet without a fight.
With great age comes boredom, which suits Helen just fine until she goes looking for a new blood servant and finds herself intrigued. The wolf she brings home might want to tear her to pieces, but she’s determined to tame him. What she never expected was for him to turn the tables and capture her heart.
Despite the taboo nature of their relationship, he can’t kill her and she can’t let him go. Together, they will defy those who would deny their love, and kill the ones that threaten it.
Warning: The heroine is one stuck up, blood sucking vampire, but then again, the hero is an ornery, chauvinist werewolf. This is an erotic romance featuring adult situations some readers may find offensive. Reader discretion and a private room are advised.
When I first started Taming Her Wolf, I kinda thought I was really not going to like the two main characters, especially Helen. She at first to me didn't seem to deserve a happily ever after. When we first meet her she is purchasing a blood slave for herself. These are captured people who are there against their will. So you see, I was like she is a total bitch! Then Gareth at first seemed maybe weak in a way. Just because he was pining over his last girlfriend and seemed really hung up over her. Then as always Eve Langlais deepens the story and I end up loving them both.
Helen might have a hard outside shell, but inside there is a really soft spot and only Gareth gets to see this. She had a hard past and shows some vulnerability which to me made me like her so much more. Gareth also grew on me, he brought out that alpha male, and got all protective over his "princess"!
Obviously these two are the most unlikely couple. In their world it is forbidden for a vamp and wolf to get together, reasons they start discovering. I love the sexual tension throughout this whole book. And when they do get together, well see the Warning in the book blurb and make sure you listen.
The book is not only extremely hot there is a lot of action. Helen's maker has found her and he his coming to claim her again and take his revenge. But by this time Gareth has already fallen in love. The ending battle was pretty intense and I couldn't stop reading.
Like I said I fell in love with this book. It was extremely sexy, lots of sexual tension, strong heroine who shows us her vulnerable side, and one strong hot sexy male. Oh and wait for the very last few sentences, it leaves us with a promise of an even sexier book to come.
