Beauty_and_the_Werewolf_500Title: Beauty and the Werewolf

Reviewed by: Roxanne

Synopsis:

A paranormal category romance from Entangled’s Covet imprint…

This lone wolf falls hard…for his enemy.

Unmated werewolves don’t normally live past three hundred years old…and billionaire Jack MacGrath is cutting it close. Sure, he has almost everything-the respect of his peers, a mansion in San Francisco, a private jet, and fast cars. But without a mate, Jack’s in trouble. Then he sees her. Gorgeous, proud…and his enemy.

Isabelle Connelly is good at hiding things from her father. Like her success as a painter, or the incredibly intense attraction she has to Jack MacGrath. After all, she’s royalty and falling for anyone lesser-to say nothing of a rival pack-would be, er,unseemly. Now she must choose between her duty to her family and her pack…or her perfect fated mate.

Quick & Dirty: Feuds, love and werewolves, will they be able to overcome all the obstacles against them.

Opening Sentence: “Painting in the middle of the night wasn’t all it cracked up to be.”

Excerpt: Yes

The Review:

Isabelle is an Irish werewolf that secretly paints. Her father has cancer and is dying and she wants to round up all her paintings and show him before he passes. She learns that Werewolf in Venice is up for auction in San Francisco. She makes plans to head that way, trying to be careful as it is MacGrath territory and her father is not welcome there. Nor, would he want her to go as there is a long standing feud between the two packs.

She ends up in a bidding war with Jack, not knowing at the time that he is a MacGrath. He wins when she is distracted by a text message, but she still attempts to buy the painting from him. He refuses and she heads to his house later to try again. While there they finally shake hands and MacGrath knows immediately she is his mate or Luminary as they are called in the book. He doesn’t understand when she doesn’t seem to react the same way. He offers to let her have the painting if she goes on a date with him. He eventually admits to her that he has all the paintings and she admits that she is Bella the painter.

Isabelle soon finds out that Jack is dying, he is over 300 years old and has not found his mate until he claims it is her. But just as she begins to admit she might feel the same, she receives a call from her pack. Her father is dying, as Isabelle returns home, will she be able to convince her father that it is okay that she is a painter and will she be able to convince him that this MacGrath isn’t like the others.

This was a quick and easy read. I did read book 1, but I didn’t like it nearly as much as I did this one. I thought that the changes like an dying at certain age if unmated was really interesting. Not that some authors don’t have age limits, but they don’t incorporate that mate aspect as well. Plus, I loved Isabelle, she was intelligent and driven and so clearly cared about her father and her pack. Jack was great right from the start, despite his desperation he put her in front of his needs many times.

So yes, I really loved this book, and if this is any indication, the series is only going to get better. Although I am worried because I did like the Irish pack and I hope they show up in future books.

Notable Scene:

“More than anything, she wanted her father to see all of her artwork together, in one place, before he closed his eyes and succumbed to the eternal sleep.”

“Just like every other MacGrath in their nasty family line.”

“As her laugh faded away, a quiver shook her to the core.”

“And the she’d know, once and for all if this connection was based on lust or something deeper.”

“A whisper of claiming and possession deep down in her soul.”

“And was tackled from behind by three infuriated Irish wolves.”

“His eyes went wide as sparks flared in his chest.”

San Francisco Wolf Pack:

2. Beauty and the Werewolf
