Oh boy Lord of the Wolves I don’t even know where to start See Lord of the Wolves is a 400 or so page romance novel with a flashback that is than 300 pages long I’m not saying framing a story can’t be good – Wuthering Heights for example uses this techniue splendidly Unfortunately for the readers Heather Graham is not Emily Bronte The part before the absurdly long flashbackCountess Melisande’s holding is being attacked She is rescued along with her people by a man who is revealed to be her husband It’s been five years since they were married which is good because child bride yuck She’s escaped from him and is angry at him and hates him They have sort of consensual sex What isn’t revealed until the flashbackBased on the pre flashback I had thought Melisande and Conar husband hadn’t seen each other in years It was a surprise to find out that for most of those five years Melisande lived with Conar’s family where she was educated and treated like a family member And that she is pregnant with his child The flashbackDuring the flashback you get all the plot and relationship building This is the last of a series although it stands alone so you get updates on his brothers and his parents who had their own books You also get to see Melisande’s character not grow up for five years The book is set sometime around the late 10th century – early 11th century and I think that a man who marries a beautiful 13 year old doesn’t consummate the marriage sends her to his family to be educated and raised comes back home claim his wife but lets her keep her people and her land as hers is not a bad guy I don’t know why but Melisande spends most of the book hating Conar She also does that annoying thing where she sends him away and is pissed when he goesThe text after the flashbackThis section covers one day where we have the resolution of the battle that you forgot happened before the flashback followed shortly by hugs and kisses and the happy ever after The endAside from the weird structure of the novel I have one major problem with Lord of the Wolves It’s what I’ve described as sort of consensual sex In romance novels I’m used to no no yes yes yeeesss Seduction I would prefer yes yes Yes YES YEESS GOD YES but I’m good with the other Lord of the Wolves is no no no yes yeesss wait wait I meant no The eroticization of rape makes meuncomfortable Look this book was written in the early 1990s It wasn’t that long ago Aren’t we past this Lastly just as a note Melisande is described as having “violet orbs” Seriously


He was destined to wed In the fiery Countess Melisande he would find his heaven and hell Even as he waged war for her heart he dared not yield his ownEven as he laid sweet seductive siege to her body he tried to shield his soul it would take a common enemy a little trust and a united front to awaken them both to a love that could change their lives forev. I read it only enjoyed about half way through until I realized that the flashbacks were just the heroine being a bratty selfish smart mouth through it was just too much I started fast forwarding through those bits until I finally got to the last bit of the book where the extremely patient hero saves this wily beast's arse Honestly if it were up to me that other lord could deal with her

What a fantastic series I'm so glad I got to read the entire series I own the second book and missed buying the first and third and don't recall why I didn't buy them I've never read Ms Graham's PR genre but plan on this I've followed her as an author since the beginning of her career and she is one of my favorites I think all of her books that I own and have read have a 4 or 5 star rating Ms Graham never disappoints
