Paige Donovan is an ambitious college graduate who aspires to reach the top of the corporate ladder. She’s climbing fast when given the promotion of a lifetime at a prestigious fashion magazine in New York City. Her bright future comes to an unexpected halt after news of her father’s death. She inherits his old cabin in the Colorado Rockies, and just when she thinks her luck couldn’t get any worse, she has a car accident in the mountains and awakens in the small, remote community of Black River.
Soon, she’s engulfed in the mystical world of Varulv—wolves descended from 13th century Scandinavia and blessed by Norse gods with the ability to appear human. Paige is desperate to return home, but never expects to fall for her rescuer, Riley Gray, a charming young werewolf from England who offers her an alternate future with his pack.
Now, she must choose between the career she’s always wanted and the love she’s always dreamed.

Wolves are an issue that is not explored by my team I like vampire, I think that was what prompted me to take this tour, broaden my horizons on more supernatural beings.
The cover is beautiful and certainly when I read the synopsis, I noticed Paige Donovan would know how to move from New York City to come up with Riley Gray.
The beginning starts very well since being introduced as Paige 's life is linked to the wolves as a child without ever knowing this . And over time she grows up and has a very different from what we can see of child life, and when his father dies and leaves him the cabin in the mountains , we again see that will change your life perhaps forever.
Reading is very easy , light and good writing helps the author, and if there is nothing complicated rhythm changes do not worry , very well directed .
The story has potential is different from the classic story of werewolves, wolves here are those that take the form of men. That gives an unexpected and interesting twist to the story . I must admit that some parts had some dispute , are small details , even with them the story is compelling . The love story of Paige and Riley is sweet from the start and when connected can fully perceive all those sensations of love and the story takes you by surprise on several occasions, by the collision of worlds Paige and Riley.
I could clearly imagine the characters , if well defined , everyone has their flaws and virtues assigned well .
I enjoyed reading , I like it and although I feel that I missed something , not even define that , the overall story is good, has some parts that maybe like me you out a little bit of balance , yet this very well written and with an open end to many possibilities .
If you want to explore a story about wolves or werewolves recommend it, if you love the stories of wolves you'll love this and if you want to discover the love story will keep you busy reading.
