Little Red Riding Hood is all grown up. And the wolf doesn’t scare her at all.
Rosalind is an outcast in her own town. Known as Ruby for the birthmark on her neck, it is believed she was touched by death during birth. But she doesn’t care. She’s led a happy life with the support and tutelage of the village wise woman and the loving attention of her stepbrother, Rafe.
Of course, now that she’s older, she is secretly and passionately drawn to Rafe in a not so sisterly way. And Rafe has secrets of his own.
For Rafe, the full moon means three nights as a wolf, a freedom and form he loves. However, as he accepts his desire to devour Ruby when he’s in his human form, he leaves to protect them both.
Now he’s back, and not only does he intend to change his relationship with Ruby, but a hunter is following him. Ruby and Rafe have to put an end to the threat that wants them both dead before they can live their happy ending.
What can I say? I like fairy tales. And when they get a hot and steamy twist: I’m not complaining…
We meet Rosalind, aka Ruby (named after the birthmark on her neck), who lives with her grandmother and her stepbrother Rafe. While growing up, Rafe was her best friend. But then he left and Ruby missed him a lot.
And now he is back. But Ruby has grown into a wonderful and sensual young woman. So, Rafe can’t take his eyes (and hands) of his now-not-so-little stepsister. Fortunately for him the attraction is mutual. However, they will not get their happy ending that easily. Because there is still the fact that Rafe gets kind of hairy a few days per month. And what to think of that big black wolf, which is seen by the villagers?
A short and happy novel. Three out of five stars for me. Hopefully the next parts are a bit longer, so I can enjoy it even longer.
