I am a fan of Dare's flair for writing such beautiful and entertaining historical romance and especially her Westfield Wolves. I am attracted to her very sexy, very humorous characters and the witty dialogue that Dare pens in her books.
Although Wolfishly Yours is not my favorite of this series, it was a pleasure reading about the familiar characters that I have grown to love. And I am happy that the Gray has finally received his HEA.
Liviana Mayeux, a native to New Orleans, is familiar with wolves. Her father and two brothers are Lycan and howl at the full moon every month. She just never thought she would end up falling for her very own furry wolf. When she is sent to England by her father's command, she is determined to find a way back home.
Livi's father regrets not raising his only daughter properly-more as a lady and not the outspoken woman she is today. So she is shipped overseas to England, where her grandfather is determined to not only transform her into a respectable lady, but to marry her off to one of the ton-a proper British nobleman.
The Hadley brothers are far from proper and respectable. In fact, lady Sophia is in charge of these ruffians with the hope of taming their boorish ways. A task that she finds almost impossible, especially when it comes to Archer.
Lady Hadley, Grayson's mother, is put in charge of introducing Miss Livi to society and all good intentions fall to the wayside. Grayson knows he is not the best match for Livi Mayeux, especially if she desires to be a respectable lady. But his efforts to put Livi in the best light turn out to mar her reputation. Now he is left with no choice but to propose marriage--at the strong urging of his half-brother Dash.
What I find overall appealing about this story is the humorous dialogue between the brothers and how Gray stumbles his way around the heroine, Livi. His good intentions always seem to meet with a blundering mishap, which causes quite a stir in society.
But what I found lacking was the strong spark that usually is present in Dare's books. Gray and Livi's connection was only luke-warm at best and there were no real surprises in the story.
Overall, Wolfishly Yours is a sweet, charming installment to the Westfield Wolves and fans of Dare will be at least satisfied that there is more to come.
