Murphy DeWitt enjoyed two years touring American consulates in Europe as an assistant to a diplomatic attaché. It was a dream come true, and a hell of a learning experience. A master of languages, she knows how to get her point across. Romance, however, proves to be a tongue twister. Now enroute to Willow Bend for a friend’s wedding—without the make-believe boyfriend she created for her family—she debates how to confess her deception. Luckily, her flight includes a fantastically hot wolf that leaves her breathless and contemplating all kinds of naughty things.
Giovanni Conti thrives on protecting others. As a Centurion for the Seven Hills pack in Italy, it’s his pleasure to serve his Alpha wherever he is needed. Dispatched ahead in preparation for the Alpha pair’s trip to Willow Bend, he has no problem entertaining the sexy wolf he encounters in the airport. The last thing the playboy wolf expects, however, is to find in Murphy the most captivating chase of his life…
Colorado Avid Reader 5.0 out of 5 stars The shifter who knows ten languages also speaks the language of love Reviewed in the United States on May 8, 2017 Verified Purchase A cute story of chase and catch. Murphy meets Giovanni as she's ready to board a plane for home after years abroad. It really wasn't a chance meeting. One whiff of her scent and he stalked her through the airport. In no time at all he knew she was meant for him and it was just a matter of convincing her. He took a great path doing that by treating her with respect, caring, love and protection. And she loved it! And him! What a joyful read with a happy ending.
Carol LaGatta 5.0 out of 5 stars A Steamy Hot Romance With Lots of Laughter and Fun! Reviewed in the United States on April 9, 2017 I love the Wolves of Willow Bend. They captured my heart with the first book and each book gets better and better. What do you get when you take a Willow Bend Wolf and a Seven Hills Centurion? You get a steamy hot romance filled with laughter and fun. Murphy DeWitt is returning to Willow Bend after two years of traveling the globe as a diplomatic interpreter. She is looking forward to being home except for one little thing. She told her mother she had a wolf boyfriend to get her to stop pushing on the whole marriage/mating thing. Not that she is against it, after all she was going to be a bridesmaid in her friend Shiloh's wedding in a couple of days. Giovanni is traveling to Willow Bend in advance of his Alpha Salvatore and his mate Margo to ensure security for them as they attend her brother Matt's wedding. When he smells a female wolf at the airport when he passes through security, he is intrigued and manages to place himself in her way. Murphy literally runs into Giovanni, and thus begins an interesting relationship. With their flight fortuitously delayed, he convinces Murphy to join him for a meal. However it is a lot more than just a meal he has in mind. In his dominant wolf way he changes her flight to first class, orders up the meal and arranges a shower for her at the First Class Lounge Spa. A shower she and her wolf decide to let him share, but not before she determines it has nothing to do with politics or their packs. Talk about a hot, steamy shower, this one raises the heat to a whole new level. During their flight Giovanni also books a hotel and rents a car for the two of them to travel from Chicago to Willow Bend. Protective much? The interactions between Mason and Murphy are hysterical, as are the reactions of all the key players. This was a thoroughly enjoyable read, no angst, no drama, just pure sexy fun!
