This lone wolf falls hard…for his enemy.
Unmated werewolves don’t normally live past three hundred years old…and billionaire Jack MacGrath is cutting it close. Sure, he has almost everything-the respect of his peers, a mansion in San Francisco, a private jet, and fast cars. But without a mate, Jack’s in trouble. Then he sees her. Gorgeous, proud…and his enemy.
Isabelle Connelly is good at hiding things from her father. Like her success as a painter, or the incredibly intense attraction she has to Jack MacGrath. After all, she’s royalty and falling for anyone lesser-to say nothing of a rival pack-would be, er, unseemly. Now she must choose between her duty to her family and her pack…or her perfect fated mate.
I read Beauty and the Werewolf by Kristin Miller in one afternoon. It was a fun read, I really enjoyed it, and the characters were all very written
Jack McGrath is a 320-year-old werewolf, he’s managed to stay alive and extra 20 years, holding on for his mate. The werewolves in this book can live up to 1000 years old, but without your mate, most don’t get that far.
Jack is fascinated with the artist Bella Nolan, he seems to be strangely drawn towards her, her art keeps him calm and connected to the World. Any chance he gets to buy her paintings he is there, he is happy to pay millions for them, and that is where he meets her, a stunning young woman. He knows in his heart that it’s his mate, but until they touch, he can’t be sure.
Isabella is there to buy a painting by Bella Nolan, and nothing is going to stop her. She needs the painting to show her dying father the beauty of these paintings, and she wants to show her father that she is the world famous painter Bella Nolan. Her collection is almost completed she just needs 12 more to complete the collection, she needs them all to show her dad that her hobby wasn’t a passing phase, as that she took her art seriously.
Annoyed that an arrogant wolf beats her to the painting, this fires up Isabelle and she confronts Jack about wanting to buy the painting off of him. After Jack manages to touch her hand, he realises that this Isabelle is his fated mate. He manages to convince her to go to dinner with him, and in return he will give her the painting.
This starts the strange courtship between Jack and Isabelle; he is now concerned that she doesn’t feel the pull between mates, and he steps up his campaign to win his lady wolf. But what Jack doesn’t realise is that Isabelle is a an alphas daughter. She had been groomed and shaped to take over her pack, once her father dies. And her pack hates the MacGrath’s, as far as her father is concerned, that clan is a bunch of thieves and liars.
Slowly Isabelle falls for Jack, and the two plan to meet her father and ask for his permission. But before all that can happen, her pack call her home, her father hasn’t got long left. But what Isabelle fails to notice, is that Jack is also dying. So who will she choose? Her duty or her future? You will need to read this book to find out.
