Darin Brightmore is a nurse who runs to escape the stress of his job. He’s unprepared when a routine trip down a local hiking trail lands him in the arms of a sexy stranger. Darin is instantly drawn to the charming Raylan and is disappointed when their encounter is cut short. Shortly after the encounter his life takes a turn for the strange.
Raylan Loup is a werewolf who is beyond pleasantly surprised when he stumbles across the enticing Darin one late afternoon. Determined to claim the quirky nurse as his own, Raylan sets out to win Darin over. Unfortunately, the appearance of a Huntsman dead set on putting Raylan down turns what should have been a routine courtship into a battleground.
Can Darin accept all of the danger that comes with being Raylan’s mate or will he wish he never let the wolf at the door into his heart?
I’ve read several stories by Ms. Brochu and I’ve enjoyed every one of them. I like her creative storytelling ability as well as her easy style of writing. In Wolf at the Door, she gives us an interesting and uniquely told tale of the usually typically told shifter story.
What I liked about this book was the way the two heroes really seemed to connect with one another. Both heroes are likeable, interesting men that I enjoyed reading about. Darin is a successful nurse, but isn’t always appreciated for what he does. As a stress reliever, he enjoys going for a run. One day when he meets a sexy stranger, he’s immediately intrigued by him. Lucky for him, the man, Raylan, seems to be just as interested in him. But when they part, Darin wonders if he’ll ever see the handsome man again. To Darin’s surprise, a huge wolf seems to be hanging around him and if he didn’t know better, he’d believe that the wolf is courting him by leaving things at his doorstep and strangely the wolf reminds him of the sexy Raylan he can’t get his mind off of.
I don’t want to spoil anything, so I’m going stop here. I will say I loved the way Raylan courted Darin and enjoyed watching their relationship develop between them. I also thought the whole ‘huntsmen’ angle to the storyline was well-written and interestingly told. This book is an adventurous, romantic story that I really enjoyed reading.
Fun, sexy and filled with plenty of intrigue and adventure, Wolf at the Door gave me plenty of the much needed escapism I crave from my everyday life. I’m looking forward to reading more by this author and will actively be looking for more books written by her in the future.
