From the Inside Flap
His heart could be captured--but his passion could never be tamed....
From the acclaimed author of Prince of Shadows and Body and Soul comes the first novel in a powerful new trilogy, the story of a noble clan whose elegance belies a savage secret--and a man who will stop at nothing to preserve his family's dynasty forevermore--.
Braden Forster, Earl of Greyburn, has devoted his life to restoring the purity of his clan's werewolf blood. He spent years searching in vain for a distant American cousin, a woman whose pure wolf bloodline is a vital link in his family's heritage. Braden had thought Cassidy Holt was lost forever--until she appeared one rainy night on the steps of his London mansion...her raven hair in disarray, her skin scented with sunlight and sagebrush. As Braden whisks young Cassidy to his family's secluded country estate, both can sense their undeniable attraction. But Cassidy soon learns that they can never satisfy their mutual passion; Braden has already betrothed her to another. Her only hope of claiming the one man she'll always love is to unravel the dark and lustful secrets of his past--.
Top Customer Reviews
Cassidy's father and brother had left home, never to return while she was an extremely young child. Cassidy knew she was "loup-garou". But her mother had died before teaching Cassidy how to Change. All Cassidy wanted was to find her lost kin in London, learn how to do what she knew was within her, and never again be alone. With the help from one of her mother's friends, she made it to London. She fell in love with the dominant male, Braden. However, Braden had plans to marry Cassidy to his brother Quentin. Then there was Rowena, Quentin's twin. She was to marry an American she had never met, while being in love with another. To make matters harder, the Convocation was soon to be held. As loup-garou clans assembled from foreign countries, their wolf part begins to show.
***This is the first of a trilogy. Each book stands alone as a story and it is pretty obvious who the next two books will star - and I can hardly wait! I urge everyone to find this book! It could not have been better! Danger, challenges, romance, plots, twists, and paranormal all rolled into this masterpiece of work. Susan Krinard's writing is so powerful that there is no way I will ever forget her name! I cannot recommend this one highly enough!***
However Braden has betrothed Cassidy to his feckless younger brother Quentin, and has denied himself the possibility of love after a disastrous marriage to a Russian werewolf. What follows is a power struggle as Bradon fights against his attraction to the niave and sweet Cassidy, falling in love couldn't have come at a more difficult time, for Braden's life and his leadership of the clan are endangered by the bitter hatred of an evil werewolf.
Braden is a man of deep commitments and a tortured past that threatens any hope of a happy future for the two lovers, much like Cathy and Heathcliff in Wuthering Heights, the reader is led to believe that these star crossed lovers may never get together. Braden is at first a fairly unpleasant character even to his family especially his sister Rowena who is furious at her brother for promising her in a werewolf marriage when she would prefer to play human. You will soon warm to Braden as he is softened by Cassidy's influence and realises that the only Cause woth fighting for is love.Read more ›
The novel begins with a prologue of when the Earl of Greyburn Braden Forster was a mere child, we are instantaneously introduced to the "Cause" - a form of arranged marriages to restore the purity of their loup-garou bloodline. Written in the joint perspectives of Braden Forster and his distant cousin Cassidy Holt provides the perfect insight into two different views on the Cause and being a werewolf in Victorian society. Braden Forster is adamant to uphold his grandfather's wishes and when he stumbles across his long lost cousin, yes stumbles, he instantaneously assumes a position for her amongst his Cause. Braden decides that Cassidy, a beautiful, abrasive American will suit his reckless yet thoughtful brother Quentin. However, things don't go according to plan once Braden begins developing his own feelings for his brothers chosen wife.Read more ›

This was another engrossing read by Ms. Krinard. The characters and story are so vivid that you almost believe that there are really werewolves out there. A very good and quick read.
