To Trust a Wolf (Unnatural Alliances #1) By Danielle Hardgrave (2016)
Does he want her, or is he after something else?
As an archivist in a small museum, the biggest thing Helen Jurist has to deal with each year is the Annual Donor Gala. When her museum becomes a flurry of activity, due to the nearby discovery of a large Viking hoard, Helen finds the additional responsibility more of a pain than an honour. She doesn’t know anything about Vikings, or what makes the hoard so unusual. She just wants to get through the gala without her boss catching the drapes on fire.
Nobody from the public is supposed to have access to the find, but try telling that to Rune Helsen. A handsome Dane with wolfish desires, he walks around like he owns the place. He’s Helen’s worst nightmare—if only her traitorous body wasn’t so attracted to him.
But Rune has a secret, one that brought him to see the artefacts for more than just scholarly interest. Unknown to Helen, there’s so much more at stake than just pulling off a successful evening. A whole world she never knew existed, a world of vampires and shifters, stands on the precipice—and there’s something in the Cutler Hoard that could burn it all down.
I can't wait to read the rest of this series having read this first installment. For a short book (76 pages) it managed to tick all the right boxes for me. The characters were likeable, charming and mysterious and I'm interested in finding out more about them in the next books. I loved the idea of the magical historical artefacts. There was plenty of drama, action and romance in this short novel.
Loved it. I'm hooked!
Thanks to the author who provided me with a review copy.
