HER SHAMEFUL PAST MAKES HER AN OUTCAST—
UNTIL A LONE WOLF TAKES HER INTO HIS HOME.

Scorned, pregnant, and facing a life without promise, Pippa Grayhawk is stunned when her father announces that they’re leaving their home in Australia to take over his estranged father’s sprawling Wyoming ranch. Drawn into bitter family rivalries and feeling like an interloper in her new home, Pippa rides out into the wilderness and meets an intriguing stranger and his pet wolf. The wolf doesn’t scare her, but she’s very much afraid to trust another man with her heart.

Devon Flynn knows all about going it alone. He lives in an isolated cabin, away from his domineering father and the scandal surrounding his family. Devon’s attraction to Pippa is intoxicating and undeniable, but when he tries to get close, she’s as wary as his once-wild wolf. Devon is willing to defy his father, and hers, to claim Pippa as his own, but winning this wounded, wonderful woman’s love might be the greatest battle of all.

 

My Review: Pregnant by her boyfriend, who was also a married man, Pippa’s father took her and her brother from the life that they made in Australia to bring them to the States and the home that he left when he was only seventeen. When they arrived, it was not with open arms and the mayhem begins. Not getting along with her aunts and their bitter mini feud with her father, she decides to take a ride, and along the way she meets a “friend” not knowing that this friend that she made was also one of the family members of her grandfather’s enemy.

Devon was the product of an affair and knows how hard it is to not have the love from a parent. Isolating himself from his brothers and domineering man that raised him he tries to make a life for himself by helping defenseless creatures.

Shameful was a very epic story of making the best of one’s situation. There’s an old saying “If life gives you lemons make lemonade” well in this story this optimistic proverbial phrase was totally true.

All in all, Shameful was a very good story that will take you away for a while. I really enjoyed revisiting with the Flynns and Grayhawks can’t wait for the next book in this series.
