Wolf Bride begins in the Tudor court of Henry VIII just months before Queen Anne Boleyn met her untimely end. The story follows the relationship between Lord Wolf, a solder in the Kings Court and Eloise Tyrell, one of Queen Anne’s ladies-in-waiting. Lord Wolf comes to court to claim Eloise as his bride. She accepts but is determined not to surrender herself to this man she barely knows. However from their very first kiss it is obvious there is a deep passion between them, which despite the barriers they both put up eventually, erupts into some hot sex.
I love the two main characters in this book; they are very well written and very believable. Lord Wolf does seem to reflect his namesake and be quite “wolf” like. Obviously being a soldier he has the ability to hunt and kill his prey, but he also seem very wary of emotional attachments which I perceive as very “wolf” like. Also while reading there seems to be many hints that he has piercing deep eyes which were very sexy. I loved the way Eloise tried so hard to resist Wolf because she is determined not to submit to a man who doesn’t love her; but then whenever she sees him so just seems to go weak and fall into his arms because the lust for him just takes over.
As a huge fan of anything related to the Tudor era I thought it was brilliant the way the Queen Anne’s misdemeanours were woven into the background story, but did not take over from the relationship between Wolf and Eloise. I also love the way the necklace on the cover is similar to the iconic necklace which Anne Boleyn wore with the pearls and the gold letter “B”, don’t know if this was intentional but I love it.
Another thing which was really good was the way the author hinted at the relationship which is the focus of the second book in the trilogy, a brilliant way of making you want to read the next book, which I do very much.
This is a brilliant erotic fiction book; I loved the storyline, the characters and the sex scenes. This book totally deserves 5/5.
