A Werewolf In The North Woods: Review and Giveaway

Author: Vicki Lewis Thompson
Release Date: Oct, 4th 2011
Publisher: Signet/ Penguin
Source: Bought/ Nook

When Abby Maddox's grandfather swears he saw Bigfoot in the woods behind his Portland, Oregon, home, his neighbors decide to bring in a prominent anthropologist to prove him wrong. Rather than see her grandpa made a laughing stock, Abby sets out to send the professor packing...until she sees how hot he is.

Roark Wallace can't risk having tourists comb the woods for Bigfoot-not with a local pack of werewolves to protect. When Roark meets Abby, sparks fly-but can he pursue this fiery red-head without compromising his pack? 

Abby is headed up to the north woods to stay with her Grandpa Earl for a week. Grandpa Earl thinks that he has seen a Bigfoot mated pair, and he has proof! He took a picture of them. Unfortunately the picture he took is too fuzzy to see anything clearly. Abby is going to prove what what Earl saw was real, that way she can get him to move back to Phoenix with her and her family.

Roark arrives in the north woods to do two things. Make sure that everyone believes that Earl's story is a hoax and to find the mated big foot pair. Roark wants to make sure that no one believes Earl because bigfoot are extremely rare and if the wrong people find them, they would wind up dead or in a zoo as a spectacle for everyone to see. This seems like an open and shut case.... until he meets Abby.

The minute Abby walks into the room at Roark's speech to prove Earl was seeing things. He is captivated by Abby's scent and knows he is in trouble. He wants nothing more then to mate with this little redhead, but he can't so that to his species. His brother Aidan mated with a human, and it's possible that they won't have any Werewolf children, which could very well end the Wallace bloodline. 

Abby is taking a walk in the woods one day attempting to find bigfoot, when she makes an interesting discovery. She just watched Roark shift into a werewolf! Not being able to believe her eyes she takes pictures of him through his entire shift from human to wolf. Not only does she have amazing evidence, but she is using it to blackmail him into taking her into the woods with him to find bigfoot.

Roark is in big trouble. He is going to be alone with her up in the woods, nothing stopping him from falling into bed....err...tent with Abby. Roark tries all he can to push Abby away and keep her at a distance but he can't and before they both know it, they are falling for each other. But Roark feels that no matter what there is no way that this can end happily for either of them....

 This was an amazing book. Right from page one I was brought into the world of Abby and Roark. We even got to see Aidan, which was a great surprise. You can feel their passion and you know their pain throughout the book. Thompson writes with such a passion, that each page leaves you breathless and wishing you had just a taste more. I read this book start to finish in about 3 hours. I just couldn't put it down... I even ate dinner with my Nook propped up in front of me so I could eat and read. I cannot wait to see more of this series. 

What a fantastic Halloween Read!
