Her biggest mistake comes with fangs…and a nose for tracking her down.

The Order of the Wolf, Book 1

Wherever there’s a lying, cheating scumbag who’s broken a woman’s heart, Vengeance Dealer Darcy Wells is there. So what if she isn’t the most skilled witch around? She’s only using one spell, which leaves the hapless male suffering tormenting lust for one woman. Her.

The beautiful part? This curse comes equipped with a blinding agent, allowing her a clean getaway. Unrequited lust, coming right up! As far as Darcy is concerned, it’s justice served. Her next target: Raven Glock, rock band bassist and drop-dead-gorgeous sex god.

When Raven lays eyes on the luscious Darcy, he gives her what he promises all the starry-eyed groupies who toss their panties at him—one unforgettable night in his bed. Sex with Darcy is so epic that he forgets his cardinal rule: to get her out before morning.

At the crack of sunrise, Darcy serves Raven a face full of cursed ash. But something goes horribly wrong…and she finds herself magically tethered to one pissed-off werewolf.

Worse, breaking the spell could cost her everything…maybe even her life.

Warning: Sexually explicit language, tattoos, piercings, and giant…um…feet. Wet panties are a given. Author assumes no responsibility for spontaneous ravishment of significant others, pool boys, or local pizza delivery personnel.

Okay, I’ll admit it. My guilty pleasure is reading rockstar books, and this is actually the fourth one I have read in the last couple of weeks. So when I realized that this book was about a werewolf rockstar, I was totally in!

Darcy is a vengeance witch, at least that’s what she calls herself. When a group of women that rocker Raven Glock had one night stands with hires her to curse him, she goes for it. She meets him backstage after a concert and Raven takes one look at her and decides she’s his for the night. This is when the first of a couple of extra steamy scenes takes place.

This was a novella which I actually wasn’t aware of at first, and it only took a couple of hours or so to read. You would think that there wasn’t time for world building, but there actually was some. In this world, younger werewolves can not control their shifts and spend from daylight to dark as werewolves every day. Since the band, also known as Raven’s pack(he isn’t the Alpha), is on tour, they usually spend their days playing in the penthouse of the whatever hotel they are staying in.

I liked how the pack completely backs up Raven when he realizes he’s been cursed. Of course since the curse causes him to lust after Darcy and she’s on the run, all he wants is her, while his band knows they have to close it down…you know, because of the curse and all.

This ended up being a fast, but fun read with good characters. I was wishing for more of the story to take place on the road with the band, but since it was a short read there wasn’t time for that to happen. It is an extremely adult read, so keep that in mind if that’s not your thing. It’s the first in a series, so I might be checking that one out too. Here’s to hoping for more of life on the road with the band at some point in this new series.

I’m Lorna and I live in Maryland. Since retiring, I spend my time mostly reading and reviewing books. My favorite reads are Paranormal Romance, Urban Fantasy, and Young Adult. I read a lot of indie books in addition to traditionally published books. Favorite paranormal creature? Vampires, but I am really liking werewolves more everyday.

  1. I didn’t know there were that many rockstar books out there for it to be an indulgence. That’s great! One thing that frustrated me when I was writing romance was that the publishers wouldn’t even LOOK at books about entertainers of any kind. They said they didn’t sell and I should write about cowboys and pregnant women. That just wasn’t my thing, so I stuck with romantic comedy–but then chicklit pretty much killed that genre. Lucky for me, YA/middle grade fiction exploded in popularity so I could jump ship!

  2. LOL werewolf rockstar? Now that totally sounds like you girls. I usually love both werewolves and rockstars but haven’t got to meet them in the same book. So this one seems really interesting. I also like the characters here. Too bad that the ending left you wanting for more but still glad you enjoyed it. Great review, Lorna 🙂

    • This is actually one of two series that involve a werewolf rocker that I’ve read..I reviewed Five Weeks a few weeks back and that was the premise too. I love the premise! And thank you 🙂

    • yes, I really liked the idea too and now I have read it in two series-the other one was Five Weeks(reviewed a few weeks ago) by Dannika Dark, if you are interested :)Both good reads!

    I got introduced to this author through Stomp vs Romp event. Dangerous spell if it backfires on you for sure.

  4. Lorna, I’d have been sold at werewolf and rock star, too. 😉 Cursed sounds like a lot of fun. I love the idea of Raven being cursed by women he’s ‘loved and left’. I also love the idea of werewolves being rock stars. Thanks for introducing me to a new book! 🙂
