About the Book
Title: The Wolfe (De Wolfe Pack #1)
Author: Kathryn Le Veque
Release Date: December 26, 2013
Genre: Romance, Medieval, Scottish
After a nasty skirmish along the England/Scotland border at Bog Wood, a badly wounded knight has crawled off to die. As women from the Clan Scott fan out across the battlefield to collect the spoils of war, one woman breaks off from the pack. She is sickened by the tradition of stealing valuables off the dead and runs off to hide. In her hiding place, however, lingers the badly wounded knight. The young woman is frightened at first but her natural instinct to lend aid takes over. She tends the knight and saves his life. Little does the Lady Jordan Scott know that she has just saved the life of the dreaded English knight known to her people as The Wolf….
Several months later, peace is proposed along the border. An English groom is offered to a Scots bride. The Lady Jordan Scott is that bride and her groom is the aged and powerful Earl of Teviot, John de Longley. When Lord de Longley sends his mighty and hated army to collect his new bride, the captain of the army personally retrieves Lady Jordan. When Jordan looks upon the fearsome English knight, she realizes there is something oddly familiar about his voice. When the man finally reveals himself, she sees that it is none other than the man whose life she saved. Sir William de Wolfe, the scourge of the Scots, makes his presence known.
William has never forgotten about his Scots angel. One look at the Lady Jordan after all of these months and he is stricken with appreciation and adoration. He has thought of nothing else but the lady since the time she tended his injury and now, his infatuation with her takes flight. As he escorts her back to Northwood Castle to wed his liege, each passing minute sees him fall more and more hopelessly in love with her. Jordan comes to know the man beyond The Wolf of legend, and so the love story begins….
Join William and Jordan in a tale of true and utter devotion, of a love that bleeds beyond the boundaries of Scots and English, and where loyalty, friendship, and family bind them all together in this uncertain and political world. These are the dark days of dark times, but in the midst of a treacherous world of secrets and hatred, William and Jordan share a love that is only dreamt of.
This is one of my favorite novels of all time. Epic, action packed, full of surprises and never a boring moment. Kathryn Le Veque is one amazing author; just oozing talent with the words that are written, which will take you on a ride that you will never forget.
This book was very long.. I mean 900 pages long. At first, I thought I may skip some, get bored, or have to set it down at some point. I was so wrong. This book kept me engrossed the entire length; not one page skipped, didn’t have to set it down, and I was actually sad when it ended.
These words kept me addicted the entire time. Never bored because there is always something happening to keep you on the edge of your seat. You will not get over run by too many details or add ons that are irrelevant. Every single word of this novel was a part of the story. You can not look at it the same with out each and every sentence.
The hero, William, is the epitome of perfection. Sweet, medieval, tough as nails, romantic alpha who will charge in to save the day. As I got to know this character, I melted. Loyal, fierce, protective, intelligent and willing to do anything for the woman he loves. I could not get enough of him. I can say he is one of my book boyfriends! 🙂
The secondary characters in this book were just as great as the primary. Funny, witty, interesting and lovable! Kathryn Le Veque never ceases to amaze me with her amazing story lines and characters that make you want to jump into the novel and become their heroine.
The heroine in this novel, Lady Jordan, is one of my favorites; there were too many times I wanted to be her. She is so beautiful, smart, fun, womanly and romantic; which I relate to so well! Because of these well-written words, I bonded with Lady Jordan and will always remember her.
I give this read 5 stars and would give it 100 if I went up that far. I read books to escape to another world, and author Kathryn Le Veque delivered wholeheartedly. I will always be a loyal fan of hers. Every book I’ve read by Kathryn has been a 5 star read which makes me a loyal follower for eternity!
Everyone come and join this ride; epic, addicting, full of mystery and uniqueness.
