Review: Releasing the Wolf by Dianna Hardy

Title: Releasing the Wolf
Author: Dianna Hardy
Source: Author Request
Genre: Urban Fantasy with some romance
Length: Novella
Release Date: November 27, 2012
Reviewer: Jasmyn

Lydia Martin has always had dreams, the weirdest and hottest of the all involving a faceless, muscle-bound man that speaks like sin and smells like sex.  Like any sane person, she always put the dreams down to an overactive imagination, coupled with a higher than average libido.

One night, however, instead of their usual, erotic encounters, she finds him in her dream, chained to a wall and screaming in pain.  Not only that, but she thinks she recognizes the building he's being held captive in as one that's just a few streets away.

Awaking with an irrepressible need to save her fantasy lover, Lydia decides to humor her dream self and head on over to where she thinks he's imprisoned.

What unfolds is beyond even her wildest imaginings, as she's sucked into a dangerous and deadly world she never knew existed...and it turns out that the man who inhabits her darkest fantasies, isn't the only one that needs releasing.

Non-stop mile a minute action starts this book off right at the very beginning and doesn't stop - even after you finish the last page.  Lydia Martin finds herself thrust into a crazy world that she would have never imagined actually existed - and that the man of her dreams (literally) is right in the very center of all the craziness.  And we all know that he can't forget the sex.  With just the right mix of dream-like fantasy and reality, it can get quite hot.  Somehow, Dianna Hardy has managed to fit everything I like in a longer novel into a nice compact novella and still leave me wanting more.  With a cliffhanger ending (that comes right after a very unexpected twist) that had me trying to turn to pages that didn't exist yet, I don't think I could have asked for much more.
