In this third in the series, wildlife photographer Tessa Anderson must prove her brother innocent of murder charges. But when she discovers a gorgeous naked man barely alive on her beach, she's got a new world of troubles to deal with, not least of which is how he affects her with just a look, a touch, or a whispered word.
Hunter Greymore is a lupus garou, a grey werewolf. Hoping to keep a low profile at Tessa's cabin on the coast, he's drawn into her life - and into her bed. His animal instincts war with his human half, but in the end, the only thing he can do about this fascinating, adorable woman is to leave her forever - unless she becomes one of them.
I was astounded to learn that To Tempt the Wolf
was a 2008 Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year Award Winner, or got Night Owl Romance Reader Choice Award for Best Paranormal 2008, since it bored me to tears. Not for a moment it engaged my emotions, or forced me to care about the characters and their fate.
It was supposed to be action filled, well, and maybe in a way it was, but no matter the action, everything felt so dragged on. So slow. While reading I kept going through the motions, through the action though the way it was written it didn't feel fast paced. And the dialogs were methodical, sometimes too much explanatory (as well as the story part). But it rarely was flowing with feeling. It simply was.
I can't say I liked the hero very much, though he had good qualities, but heroine I simply couldn't stand. There was nothing strong, intelligent or charming about her. Annoying, though - plenty.
The story itself of To Tempt the Wolf
was a bit predictable, even if there were few moments I didn't see coming, but overall, it was a waste of time.
