To have and to howl…
Logan Black, former Marine and bodyguard for the Seattle Wolf Pack, hates weddings and has no plan to walk the path to matrimonial misery. But when he’s hired to protect a hot-to-trot wedding planner with a werewolf stalker, he’s forced to put his feelings aside. Not such an easy task when the damsel can turn him on with a single smoldering glance.
Wedding planner Veronica Vale knows werewolves exist, but hates them. One bit her sister, changing their lives forever. When a sexy Marine shows his gorgeous face at one of her wedding appointments, Veronica finds it hard to focus on the task at hand.
The chemistry drawing Logan and Veronica together seems fated, but with Logan’s playboy attitude, Veronica’s hatred for werewolves, and a stalker lurking in the shadows, these two need more than passion to keep them together.
National bestselling author Kristin Miller has had a passion for language and literature her whole life. Born and raised in northern California, she often made up stories about faraway places and edge-of-your-seat adventures. After graduating from Humboldt State University, Kristin taught high school and middle school English, married her college sweetheart, and had two beautiful munchkins. In 2008, she took time off from teaching to raise her children, and started writing while they napped.
Her first novel was published in 2011, and since then she has had eight other novels published with Entangled Covet, Avon/HarperCollins and Harlequin Nocturne. She is the author of the Seattle Wolf Pack series (starting with the national bestselling book Gone with the Wolf), the dark and gritty Vampires of Crimson Bay series and the short-but-steamy Isle of Feralon novellas.
Again, I was silly and didn’t realise that this book was one of a series, although this fortunately centred around different characters, so it wasn’t necessary to read the one before. It also caught you up to speed quite quickly too.
With a title like, Four Weddings and Werewolf, it gives you the impression it’s a light hearted paranormal romantic read – and it is. It made me chuckle in places and the male lead Logan was a typical alpha male (pun intended)
The romantic part was a bit predictable for my liking, but the build-up between Veronica and Logan made up for that, although there was an initial attraction they weren’t instantly in love. Many books out there now seem to skip over that part and have their main characters in love before the plot even gets going. The author didn’t gloss over the necessary stages of romance – which I think helps to take the reader right along with the characters.
From a writer’s perspective it flowed nicely, but I did find Veronica a little much in places and would have liked to see her negative bias on shifters shift quicker to move the storyline along easier. The editing was superb, and especially appreciated as I’ve read a lot of Indie books recently where grammar and spelling was all over the place.
The front cover doesn’t give much away and maybe a wedding theme in the background would have spiced it up a bit – but hey, it shows the two main characters off nicely and always helps when imaging them.
Overall I’d give Four Weddings and a Werewolf 4 out of 5 stars – a Werewolf version of The Bodyguard.
