when it comes to me, therefore I like this series despite the author s relative immaturity in the craft At least it reads like a new author anyway Still, I so loved Ben and Ellie together and the heat they generated with their bizarre connection I hear the next one in the series is better than this entry All I can say is, if it is, I m gonna really dig it because Tall, Dark and Wolfish wasnt bad, not bad at all In Lydia Dare s debut trilogy, Regency England has gone to the wolves He s lost the most important part of himselfLord Benjamin Westfield is a powerful werewolf until one full moon when

let ye be, Ben I plan ta claim ye as my Lycan mate this night And every day from this moment on Benjamin Westfield is a werewolf and couldn t ever imagine losing his wolf Then one night under the full moon, he doesn t change and is at a loss as to what to do He feels as if he has lost a huge part of himself When he starts to investigate and research he learns of a healer in the highlands of Scotland who might be able to bring his wolf back So he heads up to Edinburgh Elspeth Campbell is a witch and her focus is the healing arts She is a vital part of a coven of five witches , as close as sisters When one of her fellow witches has a vision of a dangerous wolf that will come and take her away When Elspeth first takes notice of Benjamin, she is charmed and instantly drawn to him She doesn t see danger from Ben she sees a man who is respectful and tender toward her When she learns of his ailment and that he is actually seeking her , she only desires to heal him so his wolf may be restored When her coven sisters try to interfere in the intimate relationship that is forming between herself and Benjamin she knows where her heart lies.Tall Dark and Wolfish is the second book in the Westfield series Ever since I first started reading this author I fell in love with her writing from the very beginning There is such a tender and strong connection between the characters from the very beginning When Benjamin and Elspeth first meet, the instant attraction between them is obvious and they don t shy away from it, they embrace it You see how each of them need love and I enjoyed seeing Lydia Dare taking the unique setting and the way the plot unravels There is a slight mystery, a bit of a conflict trying to get Benjamin s wolf back, but I found this story to be a poignant and sweet read I enjoyed seeing how Benjamin handles the other coven witches They definitely put him through a series of tests and he comes out on top and handles their assaults with patience I found that I liked the relationship between Benjamin and Elspeth Elspeth is a sweet heroine, she doesn t hide her feeling from Benjamin I found her to be one of my favorite heroines She can be strong willed when she is fighting for what she wants But I love the gentle like quality she has about her Benjamin is a mix between dominant wolf and yet has a gentle side when it comes to Elspeth Even though he is determined to find his wolf, Elspeth becomes his top priority There is a couple of misunderstandings that occur between them, and you see how stubborn they both can be However I found it quite amusing and I loved the outcome of them working it out in the end Overall I couldn t help but admire the way the author puts this story together It is always fun seeing how she blends in the historical setting with the paranormal of shifters and witches A unique mixture of in depth characters, romantic setting, a rich plot and a charming love story Good read but stay away if you doona ken dialect The plot in the first book A Certain Wolfish Charm was driven by the fact the hero Simon, our hero s oldest brother was a werewolf In this one, Ben has lost the ability to change and has gone to

read this as a stand alone Yes There s not a whole lot of overlap most of the story takes place at the same time as book 1 At the end of book 1, the middle brother heads to Scotland to find out what s going on with his brother and he arrives about two thirds of the way through As always, I do recommend reading them in orderA Certain Wolfish CharmTall, Dark and WolfishThe Wolf Next DoorThe Taming of the Wolf Talk, Dark and Wolfish by Lydia Dare has to be my favorite thus far This romance story has an old world feel and the mixture of Were Wolf vs Scottish Witch is delightfully delicious.In the first book Simon was the main character who is the eldest of three brothers This installment takes care of Ben who is the youngest and the one who seems to attract trouble as easily as luring a bee to honey Only problem is, is that Ben is suddenly broken Ack, how does a were wolf get broken Well at least Talk, Dark and Wolfish by Lydia Dare has to be my favorite thus far This romance story has an

of Ben who is the youngest and the one who seems to attract trouble as easily as luring a bee to honey Only problem is, is that Ben is suddenly broken Ack, how does a were wolf get broken Well at least we find out the how and why with a comical romp through the city of Edinburgh Scotland while chasing after a for real Scottish Witch Oh did I mention one witch Oops, sorry but there isthan one but alas Ben only has eyes for one in particular and her friends are not overly happy with a beast chasing after their sister witch.The author did a remarkable job with this book with the ease at which the story unfolds and then wraps around you like a really warm blanket on a cold winter s eve She has given us her sense of humor that will most certainly have you chuckling throughout at the shenanigans that Ben and Eslpeth must overcome in order to sample the delicious delights of romance at it s finest.Misconceptions, misunderstandings and secrets abound from London to Edinburgh but unwrap at prime intervals of the story to make this a must read for anyone who loves historical romance with a touch of lust, comedy and touching surprises This was an AMAZING story Lydia Dare has now officially become an auto buy for me. Great historical paranormal romance my two favorite genres combined in one.I interviewed the author Lydia Dare on my blog in September Check out the interview. Favorite Quote Did you miss me Like a piece of myself was missing Lord Benjamin Westfield is a powerful werewolf that has lost a part of himself He heads to Scotland in search of a famed healer to help him in his time of need Elsbeth Campbell has followed in her mother s and grandmother s footsteps by becoming a powerful witch and healer When Lord Benjamin and Elsbeth meet they find themselves falling head over heels in love and not sure whom really needs whom In Ms Dare s second book Favorite Quote Did you miss me Like a piece of myself was missing Lord Benjamin Westfield is a powerful werewolf that has lost a part of himself He heads to Scotland in search of a famed healer to help him in his time of need Elsbeth Campbell has followed in her mother s and grandmother s footsteps by becoming a powerful witch and healer When Lord Benjamin and Elsbeth meet they find themselves falling head over heels in love and not sure whom really needs whom In Ms Dare s second book about the uber sexy Westfield shape shifter siblings, Lord Benjamin Westfield has developed a problem He is unable to shift during a full moon Feeling as though a part of himself is missing, he takes the advice of a fellow wolf friend and heads to Scotland seeking the famed healer Rosewyth Campbell for help Instead he meets the lovely and enchanting Elsbeth Campbell Rosewyth s daughter Born on the wrong side of the blanket she holds her head high and comports herself like the lady she is despite the wagging tongues Elsbeth is a famed healer, like her mother and grandmother before her She is also part of a powerful coven Her coven has foretold of Westfield coming and taking her away so her friends are prepared to fight for Elsbeth with all their powers Elsbeth and Ben are instantly attracted to each other as though their souls had been waiting for each other As they embark on a sensual whirlwind romance, she tries to fix his wolf and he tries to solve the mystery of her birth I really liked how Ben and Elsbeth do not have the wolf secret between them that Ms Dare s first book contained She knows he is a wolf so that never becomes a problem between them It allowed for deeper character development The chemistry between them is erotic and hot As I read their story I could feel they belonged to each other Ben s wolf wants Elsbeth as his mate and it shows As Elsbeth and Ben draw closer to their destiny, her coven attempts to drive him away I like how self assured Elsbeth is Despite her age the time she lives in she is remarkably unapologetic about her circumstances or the way she feels for Ben.Ben is your typical English lord but with out the arrogance you often see As we all know romance and magic mixed together produces some interesting and sometimes not so happy results When Elsbeth and Ben come down off their love high and enter into the relationship arena we start to see some sparks fly.Both Ben and Elsbeth are loyal, loving, independent people who both feel they know best for those they love Elsbeth is torn between her new life with Ben and her past life while Ben feels he must protect Elsbeth for her own good.Ms Dare guides them through their trials and tribulations with love and humor while leaving the reader sighing with pleasure We do catch a glimpse of William Ben s older brother in this book and he is as gorgeous and full of mischief as usual But I hear he will be getting his comeuppance in Ms Dare s last book in this series, The Wolf Next Door, which is scheduled for June 2010 And I cannot wait.Rating 4 5 I haven t read many historical paranormal romances but I generally enjoy the idea behind them There is something fascinating in the idea of all those vampires and shapeshifters suited into regency era and from time to time I like to read such a story Tall, Dark and Wolfish is my first book by Lydia Dare and I was really surprised by actually how good it is I generally prefer vampires over shapeshifters as a heroes of my books but I truly liked Benjamin He is sweet, still being an alpha man I haven t read many historical paranormal romances but I generally enjoy the idea behind them There is something fascinating in the

average historical romance heroine, she knows what she wants and is perfectly capable of caring about herself The idea of his shifting problems added an interesting twist into the story.The plot is really grabbing and the relationship believable despite being a love at the first sight I even enjoyed the star crossed lovers idea which I usually don t like There were also some funny moments Imagining Ben knocked with the pine cones right into his head made me laugh a lot.Without the half stars, I hesitated between three and four stars and finally decided on four because it was surely a pleasure to read this book I also honestly like Will, I would love to read his story some time very soon
