Title: The Howling Heart
Author: April Bostic
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Length:  244 approx
Publisher: Eternal Press (August 1, 2013)

Paige Donovan is an ambitious college graduate who aspires to reach the top of the corporate ladder. She’s climbing fast when 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 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 do not normally enjoy reading paranormal romances but this was quite interesting. The characters are such that one can easily connect with them. The writing is original and the few twists in the plot help to keep the reader intrigued.
The introduction of the Norse Gods were quite a new thing for me. Also be aware that this book is not for children as some scenes can get quite steamy! It is of course an adult Romance!
Some bits I found too descriptive and had to quickly skim through these but all in all the book was a good read and I enjoyed reading it.
