Amazon Summary:Lady Kathryn's father has sent her to court to find a husband, but being penniless and disinterested doesn't bode well for her success. Bored by the petty intrigues of court, she finds her loneliness is eased when the king charges her with the care of his newest acquisition: an uncanny black wolf. What the king doesn't realize is his remarkable pet was once Gabriel, his favorite knight, cursed into wolf form by an unfaithful wife.
The beast's too-knowing eyes and the way he seems to understand her every utterance convinces Kathryn the wolf is more than what he seems. Resolving to restore him, she doesn't count on the greatest obstacle being Gabriel himself. The longer he stays in wolf form as a captive of the court, the harder it becomes for him to remember his humanity. And to fight his wolfish urges to maim and kill.
As Gabriel and Kathryn grow to care for one another despite his horrific curse, rumors of an uncanny wolf reach the ears of Gabriel's former wife and her unscrupulous new husband, Reynard. Together, they plan to dispose of the king's pet, knowing if Gabriel ever regains his human form he could strip them of everything they have schemed so hard to gain.
Only Kathryn's affection and determination stand between Gabriel the wolf and Gabriel the man. But when Reynard returns to court, will Kathryn's love be enough to keep Gabriel from exacting a brutish revenge that will condemn the wolf to death?
Review:I just finished this book and can I just say I felt I just read a true fairy tale this book had everything a hopeless romantic like myself loves. Sweet romance, wickedly evil villians, who you just want to reach through the pc screen and strangle. As I kept reading I was rooting for Kathryn and Gabriel to find a way to be together.
Kathryn reminded me of Cinderella(without the evil stepsisters) unless you want to count Beatrice who I might add was a major witch. But back to Kathryn, she is everything I like in Heroine of this time, sweet but fights back and does it with grace as Lady of the Court should.
And Gabriel poor guy, you can't help but feel for him. He cast himself out due to what he calls his affliction until he is cared for by the lovely Lady Kathryn.
I loved as well the back story of the King and Queen as well it blended in with the story so well. At first I thought the Queen was going to be the witch so I was pleasantly surprised when that wasn't the case.
I definitely will be reading more books by E.D Walker in the future, Will I recommend yes if you love stories with Kings, Queens, Ladies of the Court with a werewolf twist then this book is for you. I really hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
