Wolf Bride by Elizabeth Moss

Hilary Mantel meets Sylvia Day: the first installment in a deliciously erotic trilogy, set against the sumptuous backdrop of the scandal-ridden Tudor Court.

Bound to him against her will...

Lord Wolf, hardened soldier and expert lover, has come to King Henry VIII's court to claim his new bride: a girl who has intrigued him since he first saw her riding across the Yorkshire moors.

Eloise Tyrell, now lady-in-waiting to Queen Anne Boleyn, has other ideas. She has no desire to submit to a man she barely knows and who-though she is loath to admit it-frightens her more than a little.

Their first kiss awakens in both a fierce desire that bares them to the soul. But as the court erupts into scandal around the ill-fated Queen, Eloise sees firsthand what happens when powerful men tire of their wives...

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Elizabeth Moss is a new-to-me author, and I'm ashamed to admit the copy of Wolf Bride sat on my Kindle since the release. With the third in the series offered for review, I decided to dive in, and I am so glad I did.

I was hooked from page one of Wolf Bride, never reading a historical romance set at court, especially not during the reign of the wife-hoarding Henry the Eighth. The story was fresh, fast paced, intriguing, and a page-turner.

Eloise is a strong yet naive character, but not a damsel in distress, no matter how those around her treated her. The lines didn't get blurred in this novel as they do in most historical romances. Eloise's civil freedoms were in the hands of her father, then her husband, but always the King's. The loss of control on your own destiny was difficult to swallow, but I appreciated the truth of it while reading it.

For the most part, the story had me clicking page after page, but a few instances between Wolf & Eloise had me a bit frustrated. Wolf was so blind to how his words affected Eloise, and not in the 'she's and irrational female, making more out of it' sort of way. Basically, I felt Wolf a hypocrite, never explaining the 'plot' to his wife, yet acting without asking questions when it came to the woman who was more than dignified and understanding in his position.

Wolf Bride was one of the first books out of several, I've read of late that had me eager to get to the finish yet not wishing it to end, as I was taken on an intriguing emotional journey along with the narrators.

This isn't fade to black romance – be prepared for many scorching scenes of between the sheets action, not all of them happening within a marital bed.

Recommended to fans of steamy Historical Romance.
