Prince of Wolves
(The Grey Wolves #1)
by Quinn Loftis

Description:
Jacque Pierce was just an ordinary 17 year old girl getting ready to start her senior year in high school in Coldspring, Texas. When a mysterious foreign exchange student from Romania moves in across the street, Jacque and her two best friends, Sally and Jen, don't realize the last two weeks of their summer was going to get a lot more interesting. From the moment Jacque sets eyes on Fane she feels an instant connection, a pull like a moth to a flame. Little does she know that the flame she is drawn to is actually a Canis Lupus, werewolf, and she just happens to be his mate; the other half of his soul. The problem is Fane is not the only wolf in Coldspring, Texas. Just as Fane and Jacque are getting to know each other, another wolf steps out to try and claim Jacque as his mate. Fane will now have to fight for the right to complete the mating bond, something that is his right by birth but is being denied him by a crazed Alpha. Will the love Fane has for Jacque be enough to give him the strength to defeat his enemy, will Jacque accept that she is Fane's mate and complete the bond between them?

My Review:
An amazing, romantic, fun read!!! I had a hard time putting it down and pretty much finished it in 3 sittings. The only reason I didn't give this one 5 stars is it desperately needs the guidance of a good editor. Typos and grammar issues aside, the author needs help with the teen dialog. Honestly, I read the 1st page and thought "How am I going to finish this one?" But after 3 more pages, I couldn't give up on the characters. What a fabulous story and I cannot wait to read more of the Grey Wolves!

Cover Art:
I love covers that exude mystery!  This is such a pretty cover.  The close-up, off center composition gives the cover character, the tattoo like wisps add visual texture and the use of a complementary, yet subtle color scheme brings the piece together.  It's wonderfully done!

  1. What a beautiful cover!! I would NOT have guessed this came from Smashwords. I totally understand about the unnatural dialog thing. Did the characters sound too childish or way mature in the book?

    1. The main character and her best friends' dialogues were just over the top; on one hand, it did show each girls' character really well, but it was too much. Think Stevie Rae from House of Night in excess.

      Still an amazing read.
