Publisher's Summary

Anya's been a bad girl. A vindictive plot against one of her clansmen backfired, resulting in her grave injury. Scarred and crippled, she finds nothing lovely about herself, and doesn't expect anyone else to either. But when a magical wishing box sends her to another dimension, she becomes the most valuable prize imaginable.
While hunting a rare marbled boar, Riggs, a trapper in Marann's western forest, hears a strange cry. Distracted from the hunt, he loses the sow but finds instead something more valuable than a whole cart packed with marbled boar skins. A woman. She is delicate, and her ears are curiously rounded. She is not wolfkind. Maybe she is the miracle his people have been hoping for.
Riggs must bring Anya to King Magnus, because breeding rights belong first and foremost to His Majesty, who needs an heir. But the female calls to a primal part of him. He longs to keep her in secret and take her as his mate. But if he gives in to the temptation, he could single handedly bring about the end of civilization.

Wolf Man and Female Highlander

This was my first book by Jessi Gage, and I really liked it. The title made me expect a shifter book, which it wasn’t. It’s more of a fantasy that takes place in another realm, and the hero’s wolf species is half wolf and half fae. Gage’s world building is well-done and believable. I could visualize everything she described.

The characters really grew on me. I take it that Anya was the villain in the first book in the series. In this book, she’s completely remorseful and feels she deserves whatever she gets. Since I haven’t read the first book, I had no prejudice against her from it but felt she became more likable as the story progressed.

The plot was good, and the suspense built throughout to quite a climax at the end. I hated to see the story end and would love to read more that take place in this world. Unfortunately, it looks like the next book in the series goes back to the normal world. Even so, I’ll read more by Gage. I’m happy to have discovered a wonderful new author.

As far as the narration, it was very good. I usually prefer dual narration because I don’t like my heroes to sound effeminate when a woman narrator tries to do their voices, but this narrator did all the voices well, even the men’s.
