Review by Lilac

In a futuristic society where werewolves are the law enforcers, naïve Bailey MacKenna has run up against the biggest, baddest, burliest wolf in the pack. Sweet body trembling beneath Crevan Byrne’s knowing touch, Bailey finds herself a prisoner not only of his muscular arms but his overwhelming seductive powers. Staring into amber eyes hot with uncontrollable desire, she is soon lost to the dictates of her own heart and Crevan’s rock-hard body.

This quick reads takes place in a futuristic world where werewolves called Modartha are the law enforcers and group called the Resistance is out to change things. Bailey MacKenna doesn’t know what to expect when she runs into werewolf Crevan Byrne, but their brief and rough encounter changes things for both of them. What Bailey doesn’t know is that her uncle asked Van to protect and keep the naive Bailey from joining the Resistance. Van hopes that their encounter will scare her, but he is taken with the young woman who trembled beneath his touch and is determined to make her his. Soon Bailey finds herself facing the desire of the strong wolf and risks losing her heart.

Springwind was a very quick read featuring a fascinating world and characters. The story provides a nice blend of paranormal and futuristic with steamy romance. Although their first encounter was a bit too rough for my tastes, I enjoyed the relationship between Bailey and Van. At first I wasn’t sure about Van as his initial actions didn’t exactly endear him to me, but he grew to be a great hero with many layers to his personality. His strength and confidence was a nice complement to Bailey’s naivety. This was undeniably an interesting read.
