The Werewolf’s Wife is a classic paranormal romance with all the hallmarks of the genre. There are no surprises in this book, but then, what romance reader doesn’t want everything to turn out the way they always hoped it would. At least when you read romance, you know the ending isn’t going to be horrible, and that’s a big part of what makes the genre a relaxing read.
Alpha wolf Ridge Addison left his wife in Las Vegas, vowing to put their one reckless night of passion behind him and return to his clan. Thirteen years later he needs a divorce so he can become pack leader. Yet he’s never forgotten the sensuous witch whose life he saved…or the knee-buckling kisses he still craves.
After they parted, Abigail tried banishing Ridge from her memory. Now her heart belongs only to her son. But when the boy is kidnapped, she knows she alone can’t save him. Though Abigail’s body still aches for Ridge, she’s willing to give him his freedom in exchange for his help. But who will shield her heart from the only man she’s ever let claim her, body and soul?
The best part of this book is Ridge. At first I didn’t believe this guy. He seemed too quick to volunteer to help out, but then I realised that he really is just a nice guy. He’s tough, but also vulnerable, sweet, and noble, and he wants a family. He’s a big man with principles and a soft heart, just the kind we all love – don’t we ladies?
Abigail is a powerful fire witch who gets a little finger zapping crazy when she’s surprised. Ridge got a taste of what she can do in Las Vegas and now he’s wary of her – with good reason. She’s a little mixed up about relationships, but motherhood has softened her enough that she’s more open to Ridge than she was thirteen years ago. Even so, if she really doesn’t want to get close to people, she’s going about it the wrong way with Ridge. Do you really expect to have sex that good then just walk away?
Anyone who isn’t into romance might find it a little shallow and predictable, but it delivers an entertaining read with a lovely hero and slightly crazy but understandable heroine. It’s not my favourite Michele Hauf book but I still enjoyed it a lot. I do like happy endings, and when it’s romance, I don’t care if it’s a little too neat. I give it 3 stars and recommend it to paranormal romance lovers looking for an engaging read.
