Prince of Wolves by Quinn Loftis
Author: Quinn Loftis
Publication Date: June 29, 2011
Description (From Goodreads):
Jaque 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?
I have to say that I was absolutely delighted when I began to read this book. At the time of purchase I had not heard anything about this book or about Quinn, but the title and cover just caught my eye. Needless to say, I fell in love with the book, the characters, and Quinn Loftis has become one of my most favorite authors. I love Jacque, Jen, and Sally, and the chemistry and humor that flows between them. I found myself laughing out loud numerous times, especially at Jen's snarky remarks. I love Quinn's take on the werewolves in this story, and the way she presents the whole werewolf concept. I have to say that I am now definitely "Team Fane," who by the way is Jacque's totally hot werewolf soul mate and he is completely "swoon worthy." It makes you want to say, as Jen would, "I want one," (Meaning a hot werewolf). Quinn is a very talented author and Prince of Wolves is one of those books you just don't want to put down. There was a great balance of humor, hot romance, action, and and suspense in this book. If you love young adult fiction (whether you are a young adult or not), I think you will be pleasantly surprised with Prince of Wolves.
