ARC Review and Giveaway ~ Wolf Bride by Elizabeth Moss


Excerpt – WOLF BRIDE by Elizabeth Moss

“Let’s have a kiss to seal your oath,” Wolf said shortly, and bent his head to hers.

Eloise had thought Lord Wolf would give her a token kiss, like that given by a bridegroom after the marriage vows had been exchanged. Some cold and bloodless meeting of lips to remind her that she belonged to him now. But his mouth took hers with a kiss of such ardent fervor she could barely stand beneath it, her hands clinging to his shoulders. She was dazed, her body under assault, not expecting the wave of violent passion that swept through her in the wake of his embrace.

His kiss was bold and darkly possessive. Lord Wolf was sure of her acquiescence, she realized with a shock. Nor was he wrong. Eloise found her lips parting beneath his, her tiny gasp an opportunity for his tongue to slip inside.

Seeming to sense her surrender, he lifted her slightly, pressing her against the cold stone wall, just as Simon had done, and lowered his head again to claim her lips.

He tasted of heat and long summer nights, his scent as well as his hands enticing her closer, reminding her of spice and oranges. She had meant to resist, but it was impossible. His tongue traced slowly along her lower lip, then dipped back inside, stroking and flickering, promising the kind of sensual pleasures she had only dreamt of before in the privacy of her bed.

In a few ecstatic seconds, she had forgotten Simon’s boyish, enthusiastic kisses. This was beyond mere physical desire. His body weighted strongly against hers, he no longer needed to hold her still. His mouth teased and played her, one hand cupping her face, the other stroking her long hair.

Eloise moaned under his kiss, her eyes closing with pleasure. She felt new worlds opening up as he touched her, parts of herself suddenly springing to life under his hands. Her breasts tingled in a way she barely recognized, her nipples taut, pushing against the neckline of her gown. Between her thighs a strangely sweet ache had begun to throb, her flesh there slick with unaccustomed longing.

Eloise drew back, turning her head away so he could not kiss her again. “Please,” she whispered.

His gaze followed her, heavy-lidded with desire. “Please yes, or please no?”

~ My Review ~ 4 HEARTS
I love a good historical romance and author Elizabeth Moss does it with sweeping descriptions and a storyline of intrigue and romance to knock your socks off. 

The intrigue these two characters are involved in leading to Queen's Anne arrest is portrayed in a manner that is really believable. This story is very enjoyable as the author weaves us through to the relationship between Lord Wolf and his bride to be Eloise. 

Eloise is a strong willful lady-in-waiting to Queen Anne (Boleyn) who ends up getting caught in a life-threatening situation. This is someone who you can admire for her quick thinking in times of crisis and her willingness to fight for what she desires.

Lord Wolf got my attention from his introduction into the story. He has very deep contained emotions and I wanted to get to know him more to see what he would do next.

As always things aren't always as they appear and we get to watch misinterpretations take place and get resolved.

I give this 4 hearts for the ability to keep you involved in the story to the very end.

Review ~ Moosed-Up by Tiffinie Helmer


~ Categories ~ Contemporary Romance, 

~ Blurb ~

Stay out of the woods...the moose are loose and the men are hungry.

Nurse Practitioner Eva Stuart’s life is messed-up. She found her fiancé in bed with her best friend Jeremy, which has killed her confidence as a desirable woman and brought her judgment into question when it comes to men. Needing a change of scenery, she leaves Cincinnati behind for the wilds of Alaska and opts for running a medical clinic in a remote town. Her life quickly changes from messed-up to moosed-up as nature takes a stab at her.

Wildlife Refuge Officer Lynx Maiski is big... and hot... and hungry for a mate. He’s more than willing to show Eva just how sexy she is. After all, sometimes what a street-smart woman really needs is a forest-smart mountain man. But he’s keeping a secret that seems destined to ruin his chances at love.

Soon they are dealing with small town interference, a sun that refuses to set, deadly poachers, out of control lust, and a matchmaking moose on the loose. 


~ My Review ~ 4 STARS
I posted on Facebook for a light easy entertaining book to read and a fellow reading friend recommended this one. I am glad she did. I loved it taking place in Alaska as it is on my bucket list. The author paints a beautiful story with scenery descriptions that made me feel I was actually in Alaska.

It was an enjoyable read with funny parts, a love story, and some bad guys. Eve was a feisty heroine that I connected with and Lynx was a manly man that just makes a girl squishy inside.

I think the moose needs his own story and he was part of the laughing part of the story. I recommend this book for everyone and give it 4 Hearts for its entertainment factor.
