This is a fun series. Any of the books can be read alone, however, why not enjoy them all.

1. A Certain Wolfish Charm
2. Tall Dark and Wolfish
3. The Wolf Next Door
4. The Taming of the Wolf
5. It Happened One Bite
6. In the Heat of the Bite

I loved the sneak peaks of Matthew, the Earl of Bloodswell, in the earlier books in the series. I loved the peaks at the characters from previous books. It is kind of nice to know that they are still happy. I think the author does a wonderful job of keeping the right mix of "peeks" and still stay on track with the main story. It was a very fun, light hearted, make me feel happy read. If you want a great escape - read this series. It is a keeper!

A man born in chivalrous times past is no match for a feisty and seductive Scottish weather witch, and watching the lightening flash and his fangs pop is only the beginning of the fun in store for readers in Ms. Dare's latest romance.

First, this is a great stand alone book. For fans of the series, they'll get to see one of the Westfield brothers again and one of Rhiannon's sister witches. If this is the first time for a reader, those same people will come across as interesting and fun secondary characters. Either kind of reader will find entertainment and humor throughout and should find that Ms. Dare has once again provided a great storytelling experience.

Rhiannon has her story this time around and she is written as a woman who is loyal, fiercely protective, loving and giving but with bit of a temper to rival Zeus or Thor when crossed. Perhaps it has something to do with her propensity to hurl some well placed lightning bolts or two but the results are giggle-worthy and it was fun.

In the past, I believe I got a sense that her dad was a bit absent minded and at first, it didn't seem that big a deal. The author lets a reader in on a big secret that presents a very real and touching emotional hook. It made me want to give Rhiannon a hug. Having a parent who seems disinterested in a child has deep ramifications no matter how adept the offspring become at hiding its affects. I was pretty impressed with how the author wove those sentiments throughout the story, and how it touched and influenced the other characters.

One person in particular gets the brunt of the heroine's ire and saucy teasing and that's Matthew, the hero. I was tickled when I found out that this man who'd given up on hope and accepted his life's course should actually find love.

The story is about Matthew the Earl of Blodswell vampire and Rhiannon a Coig coven witch. I was very disappointed in the way these characters where written Matthew was not the typical Alpha Male he condescended to just about everyone in the story and their are a lot of people to keep up with. I started out liking Rhiannon until the end of the book when she becomes the defending hero and protector instead of Matthew their was to much of a role reversal. Chivalry is not dead but it was in this book. I like it when the man protects the women. I also, didn't like that the vampires in the story are turned human after meeting their true mates and falling in love. I read Vampire books because I like the immortality of vampires and their mysticism. Rhiannon is never with Matthew she is always with the other characters in the book like Lord Archer Radbourne and his other Lycan brothers. Their was more romance and interaction with Rathboune than Matthew. The Lycans in the story Rathbourne and his twin brothers Wes and Grey were very annoying acted acting like teenagers instead of adults. I didn't like Rhiannon's Aunt Greer being rewarded with a trust fund to be nice her, she hated her niece all through the book, so at the end they pay the villain to be nice and treat her like a niece. I don't reward bad behavior and I hate stories that due. These two authors (pseudonym Lydia Dare) Tammy Falkner and Jodie Pearson Can Not write love making scenes!!. They were Awful!! Tt was two petting love scenes a few lines long and two actual lovemaking scenes about one paragraph. Just horrible for a PR Romance.

I did like Calissta who was Matthews maker, but at the end of the book the authors vilified her. She was good and kind all through the book to Matthew who she called her son .

Summary:

Matthew is a knight in shining armor, literally; at least he used to be, at over 650 years old! He was turned vampyre during the crusades and gifted with a magical ring by 5 Coig witches after he saved one of their lives. This ring allows him to go out during the day and to retain much of his humanity. Rhiannon is a member of the current Coig coven; she has extraordinary powers which allow her to control the elements. She is a force to be reckoned with. Rhiannon follows her sister Ginny to London, after the evil aunt comes to `launch" Ginny into society. Worried that her aunt does not have her little sister's best interests at heart, Rhiannon follows and decides to stay with her fellow Coig member Caitrin. Saddened by her aunt's harsh comments, Rhiannon is in the park near Caitrin's house in the middle of a storm of her own creation, when suddenly a vampyre is in front of her attempting to rescue a damsel in distress. Matthew sees a woman in the middle of a violent storm and feels the need to get her to safety. It's not until he gets to the woman that he notices a few things: first that she is incredibly beautiful, second she doesn't seem to be worried that she is in the middle of a storm and third that he becomes inexplicably thirsty when he had just fed recently and wasn't the least bit thirsty before he saw her. Matthew quickly realizes that the storm is of this beauty's making so she must be a member of the Coig coven, which he recently had some dealings with. Having recently had a bad encounter with a vampire, Rhiannon is understandably frightened of this handsome man in front of her so she flees to Caitrin's home, with him on her mind. It seems that the world is plotting against Rhiannon.
