Lord Benjamin Westfield has a problem. Since an incident with a prostitute, Ben has been unable to shift into a wolf. Because of this, Ben travels to Scotland to seek the aid of a healer witch. The seer in Elspeth Campbell's coven foretells of a werewolf entering Elspeth's life and taking her away from the them. When Ben arrives, Elspeth feels drawn to him, but the coven has other ideas.
Tall, Dark and Wolfish is a great, paranormal romance with a yummy hero and interesting secondary characters. Because of his nature, Ben fears getting to close to Elspeth and tries to keep her at arms length with little success. Ben is a stubborn, alpha male, with whom I fell a little in love, after he comforted Elspeth when her grandfather died. Unfortunately, Elspeth has her own issues and insecurities to overcome. Because Elspeth is illegitimate, she has been looked down upon by many of the people in her town. Because of these insecurities, Elspeth is overly sensitive about certain occurrences and most resolve her issues in order to have a happy relationship. The coven members and other secondary characters are entertaining. I, especially, enjoyed the interaction between the coven members and Ben. There are several very amusing moments to be had in this very enjoyable book, and I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. Hopefully, the coven members will get their own books later in the series.
