Why do I have it? I like paranormal romance and April Bostic is a new author for me.

Paige Donovan is a city girl through and through - the only family vacation that she and her parents ever went on was when she was ten years old - and while it was extremely memorable for her, the vacation did not end well. Now, she is an ambitious college graduate who aspires to reach the top of the corporate ladder. Her future is looking bright when she is given the promotion of a lifetime at a prestigious fashion magazine in New York City.

Paige's life couldn't possibly get any better, until she learns of her father's death. Understandably shaken, she is further shocked to learn she has inherited her father's old cabin in the Colorado Rockies - a cabin she and her mother had thought he sold years ago - soon after their disastrous family vacation. 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 town of Black River.

Soon, she's engulfed in the mystical world of Varulv - wolves that migrated from 13th century Scandinavia and were 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, Paige is faced with the decision of a lifetime - between the career she's always wanted and the love she's always dreamed.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book - the plot was extremely engaging and captured my attention right from the start. The story was filled with sympathetic characters and was compulsively readable for me. I give The Howling Heart by April Bostic an A+! and look forward to reading more from this author in the future.

A+! - (96-100%) 
  
May you read well and often
