Jamie MacGivern is not like other men. He is a Lycant, a genetically engineered super human with wolf-like abilities and killer instincts. A loner, he makes his home high in the rugged Pionós Mountains where the locals from the closest village stay out of his way.

When the plane carrying Federal Agent Allison Groves and the prisoner she was transporting crashed in the mountains near Jamie’s hunting ground, she is the only survivor. Waking up in a strange underground cabin, she has no idea who she is or the identity of the handsome man lying beside her. When he tells her he is her husband, she has no choice but to believe him.

Having rescued the beautiful woman he now considers his own, Jamie will do everything in his power to keep her.

Rating: Carnal. Contains graphic sexual content, adult language, violence.

In a tale not for the faint of heart, Lycant Jamie MacGivern rescues a lovely young woman from a plane crash and decides to do anything to keep her. He takes the unconscious woman to his underground cabin, determined to keep her there.

Federal Agent Allison Groves has no idea where or who she is when she awakens with amnesia. When the handsome man at her side tells her that her name is Mairi and she is his wife, she believes him. However, when her memory begins to return she doesn’t like what she remembers about her past. All she knows is that she feels safe and loved with Jamie and that is where she wishes to stay. However, others from both her and Jamie’s pasts have other plans.

As Allison’s fellow agents work to discover her whereabouts, Jamie tries to throw them off, but in doing so his past catches up to him. He and Allison find an unlikely ally in the mystical creature that guards the mountain as they work to keep each other safe.

Full of twists-and-turns and fascinating characters, Wyndsheer is an interesting story laced with both romance and violence. I’ll admit that I wasn’t sure what to think of Jamie at first as I found some of his actions questionable, but as we learned more about him and his past, I began to understand him a bit more. As a Lycant he is both feared and treated differently. His time and the abuse he suffered in prison has made him mistrustful. However, I still didn’t care for the fact that he took advantage of Allison’s situation by lying and sleeping with her while she was injured. In spite of his lies, Allison and he seemed to be right for one another as they both provide the other with the companionship and understanding that they each need.

The author created a fascinating world with this story and its colorful characters. Overall, this was an interesting read that kept this reader on her toes.


  1. This sounds like an interesting read. I just read my first Charlotte Boyett-Compo book recently, not a series but a stand alone, and really enjoyed it. The blurb here had me interested, but the review really piqued my interest more. I look forward to reading it.

  2. What an interesting premise. Sounds delicious.
