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.

Howling Hearts by April Bostic was a refreshing read. It is not your typical Werewolf story and I have to admit, I really enjoyed this one.
April has created characters that you can relate to, fall in love with, and want to hear from again. I love her ontake on werewolves, were humans can change into wolves, she did it the other way around. Wolves can change for a amount of time into humans.
The story follows Paige, a woman that has everything. An awesome job at the posh magezine Elle, a boyfriend to die for and plenty of feature growth. Then in one night her life took a plunge. The death of her father.
When she heard that he left her the cabin in the mountains, something that both her and her mother thought he sold a long time ago, Paige had to revisit the cabin to decide what she wants to do with it.
She’s been there once before as a child where she met a wolf pup. Now years later she is finally going back.
She met Riley, our wolf boy and it was instant attraction.
I loved Riley, he was such an amazing character and the world with the wolves were really well developed, the ending….fairy tale and I would recommend this novel to every werewolf fan out there.
Great Job, April. I hope there is more to come of this story.
