About The Book:

In Lydia dare’s debut trilogy, Regency England has gone to the wolves!

He gets crankier and crankier as the moon gets full…

The rules of Society can be beastly—especially when you’re a werewolf and it’s that irritating time of the month. Simon Westfield, the Duke of Blackmoor, is rich, powerful, and sinfully handsome, and has spent his entire life creating scandal and mayhem. It doesn’t help his wolfish temper at all that Miss Lily Rutledge seems not the least bit afraid of him, and in fact, may be as untamable as he is…

A woman whose charm is stronger than the moon…

When Lily’s beloved nephew’s behavior becomes inexplicably wild, she turns to Simon, the boy’s cousin and guardian, for help. But Simon’s idea of assistance is far different than hers, and Lily finds herself ensconced in his house and engaged to the rogue.
They both may have bitten off more than they can chew when each begins to discover the other’s darkest secrets…

My Review:

YAY for this series! The first book in Dare's para. werewolf series was excellent!!!

The characters in this one are just awesome and the men are hot. The "intimate" scenes are steamy but not overdone. I think they were on the perfect level for that time in history.

I was worried that the dialogue would be difficult to understand as sometimes I do have trouble with historicals. (they worry me) Lydia Dare's "A Certain Wolfish Charm" was a breeze to read though! It was perfect IMO!

I really truly have nothing but praise for it and thank goodness I had the next two in the series sitting in my review pile! I might have gone bonkers waiting for them to come out.....and yes, I've already read them. (and I can't review 'em on the blog yet but I'll be sneaky and say I loved those also!)

So I give 'A Certain Wolfish Charm' two thumbs up! I, as a paranormal romance fan, love this series and love the brothers in each book. I hope you'll pick this one up and enjoy it as much as I did!

  1. Yay - I bought this book yesterday, glad to see a good review!

  2. I'm glad you liked it! I won this book in a blog contest, and it's near the top of my to-be-read pile. I'm intrigued by a historical-paranormal combo (my two favorite genres). Can't wait to read it!

  3. Awesome review!! I love paranormal historicals, and there aren't that many of them out there! I'll put this one on my to read list.
