STORY LINE OF KISS OF THE SILVER WOLF:
Author Sharon Buchbinder sets the stage for Kiss Of The Silver Wolf with murder at a mine shaft in Eden, Kentucky. Homeland Security is in charge of the operation and something goes very wrong resulting in a death. At this point, I realized this was not the average werewolf story I had read in the past. Ms. Buchbinder has set the stage for an action packed werewolf romance.
Zachariah Abingdon and the wolf pack are on their monthly run; this time it is a run for their lives to escape certain death. These two scenes set the stage for author Buchbinder’s story-line.
Zach has waited for his mate since the first time he saw her photograph, he is growing impatient with the wait and his wolf is demanding its’ mate. Zach is lonely and yearns for a companion, lover, and children.
Charlene Johnson has just lost her parents in a bizarre auto accident. Charlene, alone with a severely handicapped brother, no money, and out of options returns to her mother’s home town, Eden, Kentucky. Eden is the one place her mother warned her to never go near; secrets upon secrets upon secrets, was her mothers mantra about this town.
What follows is a different take on the werewolf story, as we have evil jinns, a woman who does not know her families true history and a sexual attraction to Zach that is instance and intense. Come along with Zach and Charlene as they love, discover the answers to secrets and mysteries, and fight a life or death battle.
CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, AND DEVELOPMENT OF KISS OF THE SILVER WOLF:
Author Sharon Buchbinder created a paranormal romance in which she dates the existence of werewolves and jinns back to early biblical times. She has included everything needed to create an intriguing paranormal romance; mystery, secrets, vile jinns, and a town of wonderful and colorful werewolves; Ms. Buchbinder even included Homeland Security and an agent with a surprising last name; Ms. Buchbinder added a tad of mystery involving this agent.
Ms. Buchbinder started this book with a bang from the first pages, as a result, you realize this is an intriguing tale of werewolves and jinns with a different slant than you have read in the past. Ms. Buchbinder hooked me in those first pages and I read this book straight through.
Ms. Buchbinder’s plot is intriguing and well-developed as she weaves the threads of the story-line together. This book has lots of action, mystery, secrets upon secrets, and hot steamy love scenes. The sex scenes and descriptions are explicit; keep in mind werewolves have some animal characteristics. As I have stated in other book reviews, if the sex scenes are too explicit for my taste, I skip over those parts and get to the meat of the story-line.
In addition, though a short read, Ms. Buchbinder pacing, plotting, and development were solid and on target for the length of the book.
In concluding the review of Kiss Of The Silver Wolf, I found the story-line refreshing as it did not follow the usual werewolf tales. The characters in this book were well-developed. Ms. Buchbinder packed a lot into a short read. As a result she will leave you wanting more. I hope this is a series as I could see several possibilities Ms. Buchbinder incorporated into the story-line for future books.
RECOMMENDATION FOR KISS OF THE SILVER WOLF: 4 STARS
In conclusion, I found Kiss Of The Silver Wolf had a great story-line, well-developed characters, and a plot that you will love.
