The Order of the Wolf, Book 1
Wherever there’s a lying, cheating scumbag who’s broken a woman’s heart, Vengeance Dealer Darcy Wells is there. So what if she isn’t the most skilled witch around? She’s only using one spell, which leaves the hapless male suffering tormenting lust for one woman. Her.
The beautiful part? This curse comes equipped with a blinding agent, allowing her a clean getaway. Unrequited lust, coming right up! As far as Darcy is concerned, it’s justice served. Her next target: Raven Glock, rock band bassist and drop-dead-gorgeous sex god.
When Raven lays eyes on the luscious Darcy, he gives her what he promises all the starry-eyed groupies who toss their panties at him—one unforgettable night in his bed. Sex with Darcy is so epic that he forgets his cardinal rule: to get her out before morning.
At the crack of sunrise, Darcy serves Raven a face full of cursed ash. But something goes horribly wrong…and she finds herself magically tethered to one pissed-off werewolf.
Worse, breaking the spell could cost her everything…maybe even her life.
Warning: Sexually explicit language, tattoos, piercings, and giant…um…feet. Wet panties are a given. Author assumes no responsibility for spontaneous ravishment of significant others, pool boys, or local pizza delivery personnel.
Raven is the bass player for Riot, a rock band that's a guaranteed hot ticket. These guys are no run of the mill rockers just messing around no, these seriously bad ass boys are all werewolves. Fronted by their alpha, Mayhem, they live life to the max and play their hearts out for their fans and then party even harder. Raven isn't looking for any kind of permanent relationship and has always been careful to never sleep with the same woman twice and that's okay because they all know the score, right? Well, maybe not, because not everyone is happy to feel unwanted and discarded.
Darcy is a witch and whilst she may still be learning her craft, it doesn't mean she's idle. Darcy earns her living as a Vengeance Dealer. She casts a powerful curse causing whoever is marked by it to yearn helplessly for her, but Darcy always gets away leaving the cursed male wanting. She has been contacted by some women who want Raven to pay for making them suffer. Darcy has no trouble with it, as in her eyes he's guilty, but when she hooks up with him and casts her spell, things go horribly wrong. First, the spell seems to snap into place with one hell of a tug and second, then Raven transforms into a werewolf! This is catastrophic as not only does the curse react strangely but it's clear a werewolf will be able to track her. Darcy is on the run, but Raven and his pack are hot on her heels!
Okay, first things first, it's too short! I really wanted a longer read in order to get more character background and development. Having said that, this book was a page turner. It's a very sexy read right from the outset but for me it's the whole set up with a wolf pack, witches and even hunters that got and held my attention. Unique characters with dialogue that felt realistic and I'm curious to learn more about the fellow band members. The possible addition of hunters in subsequent stories really allows for much more development and I truly hope for a much longer book next time. I would certainly read more from Ms Addams and truly enjoyed this fast paced story.
