Prisca Hawthorne has loved Lord William Westfield, since she was a child. Unfortunately, Prisca believes that William is a lothario and keeps him at arms length to avoid getting her heart broken. William, in an effort to forget his love for Prisca, practices many forms of debauchery. Will these two, finally, see the light and realize, that they are meant for each other?

The Wolf Next Door is a little disappointing to me, when compared with the previous two in the series. I found myself wanting to slap some sense into Prisca and, to a lesser extent, William. The entire reason Prisca spurns William, in the first place, seems kind of nebulous, and she can really hold a grudge. William thinks Prisca hates him, but when another Lycan starts paying her attention, he decides to make her his by any means necessary. There is much misunderstanding and lack of communication between the two. Fortunately, toward the end, William and Prisca seem to have learned their lesson and start to communicate.

All in all, I'm glad to read William's story and see him find his own love. I'm waiting, impatiently, for Prisca's spurned Lycan suitor's story.
