Halloween Bingo -- Werewolves -- Howl, Growl, and Groan

Sleeping With the Wolf - Maddy Barone

 

 

 

 

 

 

Disclosure:  Obtained the Kindle edition of this book when it was offered free.  I do not know the author nor have I ever communicated with her about this book or any other matter.  I am an author.

 

This is a Liquid Silver release, so the sexy stuff was expected.  The story was just the vehicle. 

 

Carla is an up and coming country singer on a flight from Minneapolis to Denver when her plane crashes.  She and some of the other passengers survive, only to find that it's no longer 2014 but 2064, and the whole world has changed due to some kind of apocalypse.  Technology is just about gone, and so are most women.  (I'm not sure how that happened.  Maybe it was in one of the sexy parts I skimmed.)

 

After leaving the crash site to go search for help, she reaches a town where women are prizes for which the men fight.  She ends up being won by Taye, who is sometimes Lakota and sometimes wolf. 

 

“Not a werewolf.” Carla remembered his explanation that first night. “Just a guy who can turn into a wolf when he wants. Talk about crazy, huh? It takes a little getting used to.”

His lust is instantaneous -- she's his mate, he somehow figures out -- but hers is inevitable.

 

He has a pack of about 50 other wolves/werewolves living in a den that's mostly an abandoned motel. 

 

Word gets out somehow or other that Carla was a singer in the Times Before, so some human man from another town brings her his wife's guitar.  Carla gets to resume her singing career!

 

Her concert for the wolves that night was a hit. For feral murdering wolves they were amazingly tenderhearted.

It was short, the writing was passable, there was something resembling a plot and conflict and resolution.  And it filled a Bingo square.
