New York Times bestselling author, Ronda Thomspon takes readers on a breathtaking journey with the second novel in The Wild Wulfs of London trilogy--her new sexy Regency werewolf romance series...
THE UNTAMED ONE
Running from angry villagers and the man who ravaged her, the witch Lucinda flees into the forest to have her child. But Lord Jackson Wulf hunts her down, believing her death will break the family curse that transforms him into a monster. Instead of killing the witch, Jackson is moved by her beauty and desperate plight. And Lucinda seizes the chance to find safety for herself and her babe when a bargain is struck between this outcast woman and this doomed man--and sealed by their marriage in name only...
In return for his protection, Lucinda has promised that her magick can free Jackson from his torment. But this pretty witch soon finds herself in danger of being seduced by Jackson's charms and pursued by the man who would see both her and her child dead. Can she trust a Wulf with her safety and the safety of her child? Can she trust her heart to Jackson? To surrender to a Wulf is a terrible risk, for love will either unleash the beast within the man...or finally set him free.
"The second book in Thompson's Wild Wulfs of London trilogy follows the attempts of Lord Jackson Wulf to break the lycanthropic curse unleashed inside of him by love. In the belief that killing a witch will release his family from the werewolf hex, Jackson seeks out the sorceress Lucinda, finding a beautiful young woman rather than the hag he expects. After saving Lucinda from the throes of a painful breach birth, Jackson finds himself unable to kill her. Instead, she promises to cure him with her magic if he enters into a marriage of convenience, for the sake of protecting her son's identity. Lacking in both narrative and sexual tension, the book charts the couple's constant thrust and parry-though fewer thrusts than a story about a frustrated wolfman would suggest-in a struggle to discover each others' true motives. Though the series has both fans and promise, this faltering entry begs the question: if sexy paranormals can't get any satisfaction, how is a common reader supposed to?"

About the Author
People often ask RONDA THOMPSON
what inspires her to write about werewolves. So far, the only answer she has come up with is that she loves dogs and she's been known to howl at the moon. People also wonder how a former rodeo queen and graduate student from the school of hard knocks managed to end up becoming a bestselling romance author. Unlike her wild tequila nights spent in honkey-tonks across Texas, Ronda has wanted to be a writer from the time she could pick up a pencil and write her name.
A New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Ronda lives in the great state of Texas with her husband and two children, where the stars shine brightly down upon her country abode and she can howl at the moon without the neighbors calling the police. She is currently at work on her next novel in the Wild Wulfs of London series.
