Product description

Product Description

Werewolf brothers Matthew and Isaac have lived in the peaceful village of Eyam, Derbyshire all their lives. The villagers know what happens every full moon, and have their reasons for keeping quiet. But this secrecy comes at a cost—the brothers can’t risk romantic entanglements.

Then, at the full moon, a sheep is slaughtered on Eyam Moor, by what could only be a large animal. Even the brothers’ staunchest supporters begin to have their doubts about who—or what—could have done it.

As the brothers fight to clear their names, things are complicated by unexpected opportunities to indulge their lust. Isaac is intrigued by a handsome newcomer to the village, and a vivacious visitor is happy to offer Matthew her all.

Can the men prove their innocence, or is their centuries-old secret about to be revealed to the outside world, bringing their carefully-crafted existence crashing down around their ears?

Be Warned: m/m sex

3.0 out of 5 stars A solid read 16 January 2017
By Books Of All Kinds - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
**RATING 3.5**

THE PERSECUTION OF THE WOLVES by Lucy Felthouse is a paranormal mystery that is sure to entertain. We soon learn that Matthew and Isaac Adams live in the village of Eyam and are more than meets the eye - for not only are they the local GP and barman, they are also werewolves that are hundreds of years old. Most of the village know who and what they are and protect them, but when a mutilated sheep is found on one of the local farms, suspicion starts to land on them. Determined to uncover the culprit, they begin to investigate, and then the mayhem really begins. Overall the book is good, but I did find it a little slow and drawn out in parts. With unexpected friendships and passion, plenty of supernatural action and a very descriptive setting, THE PERSECUTION OF THE WOLVES by Lucy Felthouse is a solid read.

4.0 out of 5 stars A most unique story! 22 August 2014
By PansyPetal - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I found this to be a most unique story and one that will defy being pigeonholed. It is a paranormal because our two main characters, Matthew and Isaac Adams, are “werewolves.” It is a romance because each have “affairs.” Oh yes, one of the brothers is gay so there is some m/m action. It is a mystery with some suspense although the only thing “murdered” is some sheep. It is a historical because events that happened in the 1660s has a big part in this story. Incidentally, the historical events referred to in this fictional story were based on factual events. See what I mean? It is a paranormal, mystery, suspense, historical, m/m, m/f, romance based on fact. Whew!

Matthew and Isaac are interesting guys. They have lived in the village of Eyem all their lives, somewhere around 400 years. That is a long time to live in one place and never really grow old and turn furry once a month. But the villagers are okay with this. Matthew and Isaac are one of them and they all take care of each other. It is an interesting and unique dynamic. None of this “mobs with pitchforks” for this village. Here they live and let live. Kind of nice.

Until sheep begin to be “murdered” on the night of the full moon. Then doubts surface among a few. Things become tense. Matthew and Isaac’s peaceful co-existence is threatened. This is where all the mystery and suspense comes into the story. Where the mystery is concerned, for me it wasn’t much of a mystery. I quickly figured out “who done it.” My question was “why?” It kept me turning the page to find out. Although the “why” didn’t totally surprise me either, the emotions and feelings surrounding it were a bit of a surprise. It was a “gasp” moment and left me a bit breathless.
It was fascinating how an historical fact in a real village was turned into this wonderful work of fiction. There is an addendum at the end of the story that details this history and I found that as interesting as I did the rest of the book. It also let me see how the bits of fact were woven throughout the story.

Overall I enjoyed this book. It had a few rough spots. A bit slow in places or it jumped from one event to another with no bridge, leaving the story with a bit of a jerky feel. Though these things were noted as I read, I didn’t find them terribly significant. I still wanted to find out “why.” The characters were real, even the “werewolves.” They had real lives with real everyday issues – going to work, paying the bills, interaction with people, that morning cup of coffee – things we can all relate to. I could feel like a part of this story. I adore the British mystery to begin with for these very reasons, and this one didn’t disappoint.

The ending didn’t leave us with the classic happy ever after, but more of an “everyone is going to be okay” type of ending. There were no declarations of undying love, but hope that there might be. It was still a very satisfying ending. I liked it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not your usual romance 28 December 2016
By Gina Jacobson - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I absolutely enjoyed this book. It's a great whodunit with a bit of supernatural and romance thrown in.

I loved the authors writing and her descriptions of the village and it's history. I also love it when you're reading a book and the characters are enjoying a good cup of tea and it's written so well you need to put the book down, boil the kettle and make yourself a cuppa to go along with them.

I really hope there will be a follow up to this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4 stars 7 January 2017
By D. Messing - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This was was a very interesting read, I voluntarily reviewed it from TBC on FB, and thoroughly enjoyed it! It reminded me very strongly of a book that I read many years ago, but was still very, very good. I loved how the characters progressed and evolved from the beginning to the end, from social loners, to open to outside relationships, to the horror that those relationships can sometimes inflict on a person. It was a paranormal romance, but it seems almost an afterthought. There were many occasions of intimacy between partners, they were not as lurid as they could have been, which I appreciate!! I thought it was phenomenal how the author conveyed the emotions of the intimacy, and it pervaded the story and fit in, instead of seeming to be gratuitous. Beautifully written story, very, very well done!!

3.0 out of 5 stars 3 stars = I liked it and it was a GOOD read 16 August 2015
By Angela S Goodrich - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Pack of Lies was a well-written and enjoyable paranormal romance that combined some steamy sex, a bit of romance, a bit more intrigue, a good amount of suspicions run amok, and a complicated relationship between two brothers and the village they’ve lived in for over 400 years. The Adams brothers were born in Eyam and with the help of the ancestors of the town’s oldest families, they have continued to call Eyam their home ever since their secret was discovered. With Isaac serving as one of the village physicians and Matthew acting as a handyman when not bartending, the brothers have maintained a comfortable existence and become an integral part of the community. Until a sheep is found mutilated the morning after a full moon and a few of the townspeople in the know begin to question whether or not the brothers are responsible. They are werewolves, after all.

I enjoyed getting to see how strong the relationship between Matthew and Isaac was. To tell the truth, there was far more of a focus on their relationship than I would have expected from an Ellora’s Cave book but that didn’t make it any less enjoyable. When the sheep is slaughtered, the brothers find out just how loyal their close friends are. And while it was frustrating for them to learn that some villagers were suspicious of them, they understood how things looked. I liked that Felthouse was able to show how a few misguided individuals could cause suspicions to run rampant when there was no foundation for them. Despite having spent 400 years avoiding romantic entanglements with village residents, the stress of the situation sent them both into the arms of someone living in Eyam. Whereas Matthew’s encounters were with a woman on holiday for a month who was as insatiable sexually as he was, Isaac found himself attracted to a new resident of the town and began seeing Nathan despite his better judgment. The sex scenes in both cases were steamy. I did feel that there was a lack of relationship development shown between Isaac and Nathan, especially as we learn from a conversation towards the end of the book that they began seeing one another regularly. Although glad that the culprit behind the sheep slaughtering was apprehended, it wasn’t quite as dramatic of a reveal as I expected. The end of Pack of Lies at least pointed to a hopeful future for the brothers and I would be delighted to read its sequel should the author write one.

I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
