Just Finished - The Cursed One (Wild Wulfs of London, Book 3) by Ronda Thompson
Wed and widowed in one day, stunning socialite Amelia Sinclair’s honeymoon is anything but typical. Then again, neither is Amelia—rebellious and impulsive, marrying Robert Collingsworth was the one sensible thing she ever did. Now he’s dead and she must escape the vicious creatures stalking her—even if it means relying on a stranger. Well, maybe not a complete stranger. Amelia first glimpsed Gabriel Wulf years ago on the busy streets of London; since then he has haunted her dreams. But in the flesh, Gabriel is much more tantalizing than she ever dreamt, and much more complicated…
Gabriel Wulf, the strong one, the sensible one—the family, and the curse that plagues them, are his only priorities; there was little time for women and none for love. Now, he must protect an enticing beauty—and not just from the dangers that prowl the woods around them. Gabriel has secrets, dark ones he’s sure Amelia must never know and could never understand. But she has already awakened his heart...and the beast within. Will Amelia be the key to his salvation, or the architect of her own demise?

I wish there were more books to this series; I was sad to see it end. Since the last one (The Untamed One) was just about perfect, this one couldn't quite live up to it. But I still enjoyed it immensely. We were first introduced to our heroine in The Dark One (book one). She saw Gabriel in passing and never quite forgot him. And apparently Gabriel's watching out for her. Amelia has possibly one of the worse wedding nights EVER. There's lot of action and suspense in this story, and some lovely romance. Ahhhhh, I'd be happy with any one of the Wulf brothers!
