Stella Raines was looking for a change. She moved to the small town of Riverville to begin her first year of teaching history. She quickly learns that teaching in such a rural high school is no picnic, but the math teacher in the class down the hall makes her first week all the more intriguing…

Darien Wolfe is a staple of Riverville High School, with his rule-breaking hair and attire. He seems to have taught there since, well, forever. However, Darien never knew how much his long life might change until he notices the new history teacher down the hall.

Their attraction is instant and for eternity, like the stars under the full moon. But can Stella survive Darien’s secret?

What a refreshingly different take on the werewolf phenomenon!

Stella Raines is drawn to the quaint town of Riverville, Missouri. The old town has classic architecture and a small town feel. Fresh out of college, she accepts a position at the local high school as the European history teacher. On Stella’s first day at the school, she is startled by the sudden appearance of Darien Wolfe, the mathematics teacher. Darien is captivating with his tall body and long brown hair. He has a slight British accent and an old world feel about him.

Their attraction is primal and they are instantly attracted to one another; neither have the desire to fight it. As time passes, a secret begins to invade their lives and threatens to destroy all they share.

Wolfe’s Lady is written by the heroine’s point of view. The story was well paced and engaging. For some reason though, it took me a bit to get into the story. I also had a hard time connecting with the hero. I know I’m contradicting myself. I found that as the story progressed I was pulled into it. My prior reservations were gone and an understanding began.

Maybe I picked up the book expecting something else. I am pleased that I continued reading. It’s not often that you read a book and then have to sit back and think about it. As I sit here and consider, I can see the process and I have more of an appreciation for it.

Wolfe’s Lady is a sweet loving story. The hero is strong but he takes a backseat in the story. His overall presence is there, but this short story revolves around Stella’s journey; her background, feelings and her resolve to love of Darien. Wolfe’s Lady is a sensual delight filled with heart and the true meaning of love and sacrifice.
