My Review: Prince of Wolves by Quinn Loftis

Prince of Wolves (The Grey Wolves, #1)
From Goodreads:

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 are 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 lupis, 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 thoughts:

   I'm so glad I read this book! I not really into this wolf -thing.. I mean Jacob Black from Twilight is fine uhmmm.. now his abs  are totally flashing on my head! LOL. ... but Fane Lupin? Is really... really one hot kind of a wolf in the cutest sense! And this is how Jacque and her adorable , funny friends  Jen and Sally describe him :

“When you say gorgeous,” Jen started, “are we talking Brad Pitt boyish good looks, or Johnny Depp make ya want to slap somebody?”
“No, we’re talking Brad and Johnny need to bow down and recognize,” Jacque answered”

      See?! What an apt description! Fane clearly spells DROOL WORTHY!!! 

     The story started when a foreign .. I mean a hottie foreign exchange student from Romania moved to Jacque's neighborhood. Jacque is a typical seventeen year old.. or as she thinks so. She loves spending her time with her bff's  in their little over 700 populace town. Her ordinary life becomes interestingly strange when she begun hearing voices in her head ...and that voice belongs to Fane Lupin! The hottie next door who happens to be the Prince of Grey Wolves! AND... here comes a Shocker : Fane found his Luna.. his mate... and she is , no other than the clueless Jacque!  well, who wouldn't be shocked?! It's not in Jacque's  normal days that she  found out that werewolves exist... and a gorgeous wolf prince is woo-ing her?!  Yes woo-ing! Seriously wooing  her like in the royalty kind of manner ?! A.k.a court her! And ladies, prepare to swoon!!!

   Yes! Fane's oh-so-gentlemanly sexy ways plus Jacque's funny sarcastic mouth is a perfect combination! And they look so good together! Here is how I picture Fane and Jacque :



    I love how Fane calls her his Luna! I'm really big on this nicknames thing! ( I am over romantic in a freakish way?! LOL. ) The way Fane says it.. like I can hear it ... maybe in my thoughts?! Oh my gawd?! Did I just heard Fane's sexy, wolfish voice in my head?! I wish! Oh-uh. I super envy Jacque for having this somekind of mental telepathy with Fane. Imagine having that? Who needs smartphones?! Haha. 

“I am so honored to finally meet you, my Luna,” he told her. “We have much to learn about each other.”

   And this just one of the things she shares with Fane... strange , intricate markings like body art / tattoo starts appearing  in their bodies...in a matched, complementary way?! It's like getting a matched tattoo with your loves minus having to go through the painful needleworks?! How cool is that??? I love it when Fane's got this mutt-jealous when his mate's markings are exposed  to any wolf in the area? Which apparently, Fane is not so alone  who is after Jacque! Some furry creature who happens to share his territory! There is Lucas another grey wolf who is also claiming Jacque as his own mate! What the ??? Who would think Jacque's one most desired, sought after female in the whole....wolves uhmm mutty world?!!  So, how do wolves deal with this? Yes, through a challenge! Like a duel and of course they have to fight to death to claim Jacque!  I have to hold my breath the entire duel!

     I love the ending... and again, like most of the wonderful books I read, Prince of Wolves promises  a very good sequel! I can't wait to find out what's in store for both Fane and Jacque!

     “I love you, Jacquelyn Pierce, my mate, my love, meu inimă (my heart). I want you to be all mine, with no way for anyone to challenge me.”

     If you are looking for a funny, highly entertaining and swoony read... this book is perfect for you! I really enjoyed every single page. Never a dull moment for me... with Fane all adorable in both his wolf and human form?! I can't help but to have this wolfish grin during and after reading this book!
