My resurrection, they call it.
They have no bloody idea.
Shipwrecked and lost, left for dead,
Abandoned by my own family.
Drugged and addicted.
My wife saved me, brought me home.
I didn’t even know I had a wife—can I trust her?
I know I want her.
We are two of a kind—the manipulated, the tossed off, the rejected.
Bitter disappointments, painful secrets, age-old jealousies are my new shipwreck,
and my wife my new opium.
Is satisfaction to be found in revenge or revenge in satisfaction?
One thing I do know, without each other we’re both doomed.
A sensual 18th century tale of deception and revenge, and the healing of two souls hungering for love and absolution.
Thoughts: I’m still a new reader to the YA genre and this was the first book I’ve read by Cat Porter but not my last. Wolfsgate had me from page one and held me until I turned the last page. The book was all consuming. It dragged you in and left you wanting more.
We all struggle with being lost at one point in our lives and this story brings to home those who feel forever lost and broken but find themselves being healed by the love of another.
Cat Porter wrote with such a style that it left me realizing that life is like a puzzle and once all the pieces are put together life will be complete but without it’s trials and tribulations we wouldn’t appreciate the happiness that we eventually find with that one “perfect” piece that completes us.
This was a well written book and one that I’ll remember. I will be reading the rest of Cat Porter’s books most definitely.
