The Wolf’s Torment
by Stephanie Burkhart
It's 1865 and Moldavia is a country nestled against the shores of the Black Sea. Lady Theresa travels from Austria to this country that's haunted by tales of vampires and werewolves. She's going to marry the Crown Prince, but she harbors her own unspoken secrets.
Prince Mihai has just returned to Moldavia to discover he's a witch. He's intent on being a good husband and modernizing his country, but he must find a balance with his supernatural heritage. His best friend, Viktor, accompanies Mihai and marries Mihai's sister. In an unfortunate twist of fate, a werewolf bites Viktor.
Viktor's transformation threatens everyone around him, including his wife's safety and Mihai's happiness, but he's especially dangerous when he's near Theresa. Can Mihai save his family from Viktor's lies and deceptions?
Theresa walked down the hall toward Mihai's study, thrilled to finally receive an invitation from him. They were only a week into Lent, but each time she was with Mihai, his hesitation and reservations grew less. His kisses grew bolder, harder, full of passion, and the way he ran his hands over her body ignited a fire in the core of her being that she could hardly contain.
Then there was 'the feeling' between them. She didn't know what else to call it. When she and Mihai were kissing, touching, caressing, she could swear she felt his emotions, his passions, his desires, and that only heightened the sensual experiences between them.
And he felt her.
She guessed this had to be because he was a witch. The thought didn't unnerve her. She'd overheard her family on occasions talking about witches and their powers, and she always accepted the existence of witches because they did, but she never thought she'd meet a real witch, let alone marry one. She believed witches to be good, so she had no fear of Mihai or his talents.
She stopped in front of the study's door. She wanted to be good. Beatrice once told her good was boring, but Theresa never believed that. She was having fun. Mihai stimulated her like no other. He listened to her. He believed in her causes. She would be a good wife to him and a good mother to his children.
Yes, she resolved, she would be good. Her shoulders set, she knocked on the door. "Come in."
She walked in, closing the door behind her. Mihai stood behind the desk, a map nailed up
on the wall behind him. A bottle of brandy and two glasses rested on his desk.
He studied her with an intense gaze.
Wow what a story! The story line was so interesting I couldn't put it down. I normally enjoy books with a lot more action, however the depth of the emotions I felt while reading this kept me captivated. I want to know what happens to the characters next. Goodreads
