Soul Mate Publishing
Was given to me for an honest review by Manic Readers
Vivian Stuart and her father were there way to see his old alchemy friend and colleague when tragedy strikes and she lost him to the sea. Now she is stranded on the island they were heading to with the son of her father’s colleague and he wants her gone as much as she wants to be gone from the must old castle and isolated island. But Vivian’s paste is hot on her heals and she is about to lose her heart to the Laird of the castle.
Galen Maclean is the Laird of the island with his tortured past dogging his every step. When he pulls Vivian from the sea he can’t decide whether to keeper her and let her save his soul or throw her back into the sea. With his secrets and her past catching up to her will they find the future they both deserve?
Madelyn Hill did an awesome job of fleshing out her characters; they did jump from the pages and were successful in helping me finish this book. The story line however though solid left me bored and eager to move on to the other book I was reading even with the books most excellent beginning.
Book Cover Rating
I really like the cover of this book and felt that it really represents Wolf’s Castle and was a great hook.
Book’s Blurb Rating
The blurb needs some minor editing but it was written well enough to make me add this book to my reading list. I was very excited to find it on Manic Readers but was disappointed to find that the blurb was better than the book in eliciting any excitement for the book.
Can he forget the past and embrace the future?
He’s the beast of Lomarcan Castle. Tortured, angry, and bound and determined not to allow Vivian Stuart to invade his lair. Lord Galen Maclean refuses to be endeared to the lovely woman who has landed on his island looking to study alchemy. The island possesses secrets, secrets too horrid to share with the gentle woman. However, her beguiling nature brings light to the darkness of the castle and the few quirky inhabitants and edges into his heart.
Can she tame the beast within him to gain his love?
She was stranded on a remote island, her father dead and dishonored by her betrothed. Still, the lovely Vivian Stuart wears her heart on her sleeve and strives to redeem Lord Maclean. She knows his heart is good and the castle can be filled with love. Through science she learns more about the troubled lord and slowly but surely, the torture lord’s icy heart begins to thaw as Vivian shares the magical healing power of love.
