Bride of the Wolf by Abigail Barnette

Commanded to marry the son of Lord Canis, a powerful ally of her father and King Edward, Aurelia knows she is about to venture into a den of wolves. For the men who live at Blackens Gate are no ordinary men, able to change at will into enormous, bloodthirsty beasts…and as a mere human, Aurelia is a reviled outsider.

When the wolves escorting his brother’s bride to Blackens Gate turn on her, Sir Raf Canis finds himself in the unlikely position of rescuer. After losing his leg—and his place in the pack—Raf refuses to bring himself further shame by failing to deliver the lovely Aureilia. But the innocent maiden proves to be a temptation even he cannot resist.

Within the dark, dangerous forest, a love begins that neither can deny. To protect Aurelia, Raf must betray everything he has come to believe about his life among wolves, and risk death to save the only woman ever to touch his wounded soul.

Bride of the Wolf is a fast-paced, quick historical erotic romance. Paranormal, it has a wonderful twist which I thoroughly enjoyed. I love a man with faults, and Raf has several, but who can resist a powerful man who loves his woman? I can’t.

From her expression, it was clear she would have blanched, if she had not already been devoid of color from the cold. Her wide eyes opened wider, and she took a step back, then another.
“To dry them,” he explained. “Keep your chemise, and you may use my cloak.”
“It’s wet, as well,” she pointed out suspiciously, but her hands fell to the ties of her sleeves.

If he were a whole man, he could easily best his brother, but he was not. And as he was not, he could not claim her, nor protect her against the pack.

And many more

If you like fast-paced stories where the outcome is not guaranteed then this is the one for you. Excellent and certainly a keeper.
