The Werewolf’s Servant

Thorncliff Towers is done up for Christmas, secure against wind and wolves. But Karina Petri is shut out, too, and the gypsy witch wants what’s inside. She envies the gifts, the feast, the pretty clothes, of course. But her true desire is for the love of Constantin Stoica. Her smolderingly handsome childhood friend agreed to serve Lord Draven after his brother was caught stealing last year. He suspects Karina was involved—and it would take more magic than she possesses to make him forgive…

Constantin has always been drawn to Karina’s dark curls, flashing eyes, and reckless ways. But trusting her has proven dangerous before, and this night holds more to fear than most. The wrong decisions could cost him his job, his safety—even his life. But letting Karina go could cost him his heart…

Reviewer: Patty McKenna Van Hulle

Karina Petri has gypsy magic that always seems to get her into trouble. Constantine Stocia is always getting wrapped up in her OOPS & even has a limp from his broken leg she caused by falling out of a tree & landing on him. One Christmas she talks his brother, Viktor, into stealing food from Thorncliff Towers & was totally busted by the Lord of the manor. So to get his brother out of trouble, he volunteers to be the Lord's newest servant & he can never leave Thorncliff Tower ever again. Years later, Karina is back with all her gypsyNESS & she has a plan to get him back to the gypsy camp to save his dying dad, armed with a backup potion & her magically ring, but all she causes is magically mayhem!

This is my first Ms. Myles romance & I loved all the gypsyNESS & magically ruckus. I started the tale by really disliking Karina with all her ME, ME, MEness, but by the end I did love her gutsyNESS & spunk. Constantine was a great good guy hero with his eternal Boy ScoutNESS, but he did need Karina's troublemaking to make his life interesting. The little girl, Grace Ann, was the perfect Fairy Godma-in-training with her SPARKLINGLY LOVE PIXIE DUST & gave this tale a extra dash of fairytaleNESS! Ms. Myles gave her h/h a night of tangled sheets, tongues & limbs that gave this quickie romance a UNDIES SCORCHING scenes! I must give Ms. Myles my score of 4 fingers up & 8 toes for this holiday quickie of NAUGHTINESS!

NetGalley ARC given for my honest review.
