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--.

Braden Forster, Earl of Greyburn had devoted his life to restoring the purity of his clan's werewolf blood, as his father did before him. Braden had spent years having agents search America for two cousins. Having failed, he believed the Holt children to be lost forever.
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!***

Imagine if the characters of Jane Eyre or Wuthering Heights were werewolves and you'll get an idea of this book. The setting is the English moors in the 1800's, the plot is a historical saga but with the added complication that the main characters are all werewolves. Cassidy Holt is loup garou she was orphaned after her mother died before she could teach her to Change her only remaining family is her distant cousins in England who take her in. Cassidy is drawn to the mesmerising Earl of Greyburn Braden Foster who as the leader of the werewolf clan must choose between his attraction to Cassidy and his duty to his cause to unite the werewolf families in marriage and maintain the purity of their loup garou bloodlines in order to prevent the demise of their species.
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.

Touch The Wolf was a really interesting historical novel with a werewolf twist. The characters were intriguing and well developed and the plot line was fascinating and tinted with random surprises, and not forgetting the constant nail-biting `will they, won't they' moments. Braden Forster is a mixture of Rochester and Heathcliff with the usual werewolf elements, but Cassidy Holt is something else altogether. She is an orphan who was abandoned by her father and brother at an early age and soon after suffered her mother's demise, Cassidy was then taken in by her father's brother's family who treat her with nothing but fear and disdain. For Cassidy Holt is loup-garou. After memorising a letter her mother wrote in her childhood about having kin in England that would help her through her transition she heads off in search for them.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love the story 9 Jun. 2017

Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Love the story. There are definitely twists in this story. Krinard has you guessing who's good, bad, and in between the entire time. The heroine starts off as being too naive and innocent but definitely grows into a strong and proud woman. The hero is definitely your alpha macho type but he changes his tune towards the end. Beautiful story, you can't go wrong.

Cassidy Holt is orphaned and abandoned at the age of 7. Her father's brother took her in reluctantly and fearfully. Her mother and brother were werewolves and she is one also, athough she has yet to change into a wolf. Her mother wanted her to go to her werewolf family in England, but her uncle forbid it. When she is old enough, she travels to San Francisco to her mother's best friend and together they go to London to search for Cassidy's family. Her family is the powerful Greyburn Forsters, headed by Braden, Earl of Greyburn. The Earl has carried on his grandfather's Cause to preserve the werewolf bloodlines and the newly found Cassidy is to be a part of this. He plans to marry her to his brother Quentin, but finds that he wants her himself. When he finds that she cannot change her marries her, thinking that he is sterile anyway, so her half breed status won't affect the bloodline. Cassidy changes his family and the Earl in ways they never thought possible.
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.
3.0 out of 5 stars It was okay 12 Sept. 2010
By Trish - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I enjoyed premise of the book, but the author didn't move the story on fast enough for me. The beginning started off really well. Then, once they got to Grayburn I kept reading and reading hoping something would happen. To be fair the book would have short little bursts of interesting activity, only to get bogged down with repeatedly talking about the characters pasts over and over again; always constantly hinting at "past events" that made people the way they were. Unfortunately, when the author finally gave the full explanation regarding everyone's past I really didn't care because I was tired of hearing about it. The book had it merits, it just needed more action, less "past" explanations and to move at faster pace.

Mediocre editing. The story was great, the characters well drawn and enjoyable. There were unfortunately hundreds of typos and context errors.
