Paige Donovan is an ambitious college graduate who aspires to reach the top of the corporate ladder. She’s climbing fast when she’s given the promotion of a lifetime at a prestigious fashion magazine in New York City. Her bright future comes to an unexpected halt after news of her father’s death. She inherits his old cabin in the Colorado Rockies, and just when she thinks her luck couldn’t get any worse, she has a car accident in the mountains and awakens in the small, remote community of Black River.
Soon, she’s engulfed in the mystical world of Varulv–wolves descended from 13th century Scandinavia and blessed by Norse gods with the ability to appear human. Paige is desperate to return home, but she never expects to fall for her rescuer, Riley Gray, a charming young werewolf from England who offers her an alternate future with his pack.
Now, she must choose between the career she’s always wanted and the love she’s always dreamed.

I was going to title today’s blog post “Finally Friday,” but since I’ve had my surgery, everyday could be Friday for me. Don’t worry, it isn’t as good as it sounds. I’m very limited on what I’m allowed to do. While not being allowed to do housework is a good thing, some of the other restrictions aren’t so good.
The one thing I’ve been doing a good bit of lately (if you’re a friend or follower on Goodreads, you’ve noticed this) is reading. My last read, The Mystic Wolves, was one I nearly gave up on finishing.
It made me wonder…I don’t like adding a book to my DNF shelf, but how long do you keep reading before you give up? Is there a standard? Does a particular scene turn you off? I’m interested in your comments. What is your gauge?
For me The Mystic Wolves was very s-l-o-w. The entire first chapter (or maybe even two) was about wolves playing football. That was it. To me it seemed like a strange place to start a story. I kept wondering if some big, bad demon was going to crash the game. Nope, no game crashing. Just lots and lots of sickeningly sweet lovey-dovey talk and thoughts between Darcy and Mason. Gah. Enough! Even for a romance. Enough! Continue reading “Finicky Friday”
