Shortly after graduating college, Paige Donovan lands a dream job at a fashion magazine in New York City! After her father suddenly dies, she inherits his old cabin. She travels to the Colorado Rockies in search of why her father left her a cabin that she hasn't seen since she was a young child.
Upon arriving in Black Creek, Paige is haunted by past memories of the cabin which involved a white wolf. She quickly befriends Riley and his twin sister, Quinn, leading to events which will help Paige unravel a startling revelation about the community of Black Creek. The residents are descendents from the 13th century Scandinavia wolves that were blessed by the Norse gods, so they would have the ability to shift into human form.
Paige planned on returning to her life in New York as soon as possible, but she wasn't expecting to fall in love with Riley Gray, who happens to the one of the werewolves.
Personally, I believe the werewolf romance tales have been ruined by the overly-hyped Twilight franchise, but author April Bostic has put some new blood into the wolf mythology with The Howling Heart. Before I began reading the book, I didn't really expect to be mental drawn into the main character's (Paige) narration as she explores her past, learns about the mystical world of Varuly, and falls in love with a werewolf. I thought the romance would be a little campy, but the author avoided all the typically human/werewolf romance clichés. Overall, The Howling Heart is better than the average supernatural romances currently out on the market. I was instantly intrigued by the likeable characters and creative plot. I highly recommend other readers to read The Howling Heart!
