Howard Barr has worked as a bodyguard for Roman Draganesti for a number of years, a bear shapeshifter Howard as watched as one after another of his co-workers has found their mate but Howard remains alone. Wild About You by Kerrlyn Sparks is the latest in The Love at Stake series. Howard barely survived the murder of his girlfriend in high school and has remained focused on one thing, revenge for her death, well….except for his secret fascination with Elsa Bjornberg, a television series home remodeler. When Roman’s wife Shannan decides to meddle and hires Elsa’s show to do a remodel on one of their properties, Howard will find himself tempted like he never has been before.
Elsa Bjornberg has always felt a little out of place until she meets Howard, who makes her feel like a woman. When Elsa starts to fall for Howard, she finds out their love is forbidden by an ancient curse and Elsa has to decide how far she is willing to go for love, even if that means sneaking behind her crazy gun toting aunt’s backs.
I am a huge fan of the Love at Stake series and Wild About You continues the entertaining series. Howard has appeared in several of the other books in the series and I was excited that he finally got his own happily ever after. Sparks’ weaving of an ancient curse into and impacting the current lives of the descendants of the curse was masterfully done. I think my favorite thing about Sparks’ series, and why I keep reviewing the books in the series, is her ability to make me laugh. I know going into a The Love at Stake series that I am going to be humorously entertained when I pick up a novel in the series and Wild About You keeps the humor flowing.
