The heroine is Delilah Hortense Haskell Trent (Lil) she is the last Haskell heiress (everything is passed through the female line) and has come to Cornwall from America after the previous heiress was killed by wolves one night on the moors. She is irresistibly drawn to the estate manager Ian Griffith and starts by trying to avoid him but one night she can resist no longer and ventures into his rooms to find him strapped to the bed, she frees him and helps herself ! But the curtains open and the moon shines on the couple as they lie in bed and the sound of a wolf howling to gather its pack is heard. The Haskell's and Griffith's were cursed a long time ago so Lil tries to find out how to break the curse, meanwhile the wolves are killing and Ian can remember nothing except that he awakes covered in blood. Lil has some help from her companion Safira and her groom/bodyguard Jeremy as well as the new stable manager. I liked this book for many reasons, the plot is good and works well as the frame to hang the characters relationships and motivations on, the secondary characters have a feeling of depth to them and the sex scenes whilst being hot do not take over from the plot. My only niggle is that I wish the sub plot of Jeremy and his romance was more a part of the book as both Jeremy and his girl came across as very interesting characters and whilst Jeremy is not the classic romantic lead (being to short for one thing) I felt more inclined to him than Ian.
