Luring the Lykán with Almond Macarons by Leslie Ann Brown

I'm kicking off December with 25 days of cookie novellas from The Wild Rose Press. I'll be spotlighting one a day until Christmas, so check back often because there's a wide selection of great books to curl up with this winter. 

Today's book, Luring the Lykan with Almond Macarons by Leslie Ann Brown has great characters, suspense, and a sweet holiday romance. Read my review on Goodreads.

About the book

About the book:

When a reclusive dryad meets a grumpy shifter, crumbs will fly.
After waking from a healing sleep of seventy years, Joanna Kourakis doesn’t fit in anywhere, not with her fellow dryads in their Florida Grove, and certainly not with humans and their technology. When she’s sent to a small town in Northern Ontario to be a camp counselor for shifters who won’t shift, Jo decides to make the best of it, and keeping to herself is what she does best. But it’s awfully hard to ignore the handsome lykán wolf shifter who runs the camp, or the human hunters who want to bag themselves a wolf or two for Christmas.

Peek between the pages:

Kel crossed his arms. “You’re a strange one. Not anything like Minerva.”

I smiled. “You have that correct. You leave me alone, and I’ll leave you alone. And everyone is happy. Is there anything else you wish to show me?” If not, leave.

“No.” He subjected me to his amber stare a few seconds too long, obviously debating whether to say something else. He gave into the impulse. “Keep out of the woods. The ones who stay in fur can be impulsive.”

I cocked my head to one side. “You’re telling a dryad to stay out of the woods? Did that work with Min?”

“No, but she could take care of herself.”

My shoulders tensed. “And I can’t?”

His shoulders shrugged. “I don’t know. There’s something about you. Something lost. Or sad. It makes you seem like prey.”

I laughed. “Does ‘impulsive’ translate to ‘hunt down and eat lone dryads found in the woods’? Do I need to carry some sort of protection? Like wolfsbane? A rolled-up newspaper?”
