Paige Donovan is an ambitious college graduate who aspires to reach the top of the corporate ladder. She’s climbing fast when given the promotion of a lifetime at a prestigious fashion magazine in New York City. Her bright future comes to an unexpected halt after news of her father’s death. She inherits his old cabin in the Colorado Rockies, and just when she thinks her luck couldn't get any worse, she has a car accident in the mountains and awakens in the small, remote community of Black River.

Soon, she’s engulfed in the mystical world of Varulv---wolves descended from 13th century Scandinavia and blessed by Norse gods with the ability to appear human. Paige is desperate to return home, but never expects to fall for her rescuer, Riley Gray, a charming young werewolf from England who offers her an alternate future with his pack.

Now, she must choose between the career she’s always wanted and the love she’s always dreamed.

I thought this was a pretty good read. I enjoyed the different spin on werewolves, with the addition of Norse Gods and folklore. It was an interesting story about love at first sight and how one truly never forgets their first love. Both Paige and Riley both feel that missing piece their entire lives until they reconnect in Black River. Granted their first encounter was a bit different than most but it just shows that people who are meant to be together will always find a way in each other's path. 
  When Paige has to return to the family cabin in Black River she quickly finds herself in lust with the hot guy from the grocery store and terrified of the wolf stalking her. She's terrified and ready to leave when a car accident extends her stay in Black River. Her rescuer, Riley, just happens to be the hot guy from the store and the one that will change her life as she knows it. But it seems at every turn there is an obstacle thrown their way, but will love prevail? 
 Cool werewolf story, but I was a little weirded out by the mention of the possibility of bestiality, but thank heavens that didn't take place, I don't think I could have finished if it did. Other than that, it was a good read and I'll definitely be reading more of April Bostic's work.
