My Inner Wolf

. Monday, June 28, 2010

Discovering Her Wolfen Heritage by Missy Martine has a great opening that feels like Little Red Riding Hood. Innocent, young Maddie meets big bad wolf, Remus, who is only big and bad to those who would hurt her.

This romance has a classic feel to it, but MM’s shifter wolves are new and unique. Remus is definitely all modern man despite his wolf instincts. He isn’t your typical dominant male character, dragging Maddie into his world whether she likes it or not. Remus forces himself to rise above his wolf’s need to dominate his mate, giving Maddie the respect she deserves and the right to call the shots in her own life.

You and I both know what a refreshing change that is from a lot of fantasy romance out there today where the author blames the male lead’s bad behavior on the fact that he’s not quite human and therefore should not be expected to rise above his animal characteristics. I’m so sick of that excuse and happy to see that there’s at least one author out there who makes her characters strong enough to conquer their baser instincts! Well done MM!

My only small grumble is that the dialogue can sound a little old fashioned from time to time, which really is nothing compared to the smoking-hot love scenes and the wonderful ending that make this book a must read.

I look forward to reading more about the other wolves introduced in this book. (I want to read Michael and Ariane’s story!)
