BlackWind: Sean and Bronwyn (BlackWind #1)by Charlotte Boyett-Compo 4 out of 5 stars http://angelswithattitudebookreviews-joelle.blogspot.com/ Book one in a two-book saga. Sean and Bronwyn have loved one another since grammar school. Believing Sean isn't good enough for their child, Bronwyn's parents will do everything in their power to keep them apart, including spiriting Bronwyn off to a secluded convent in Ireland. But Sean isn't entirely human. Born of an Earthly mother and implanted with an alien parasite that makes it possible for him to shape-shift into a wolf-like creature, the young man is far more than Bronwyn's parents counted on. Determined to be reunited with the woman he loves, Sean will do what is necessary to have her in his arms once again. From the mists of time and space, another creature lies in wait, eager to steal Bronwyn from Sean. Danyon Hart is a NightWind, an immortal created to aid women in their times of despair. He has heard Bronwyn's lonely cries and has come from the far reaches of the megaverse to claim her. Fighting to get back to one another, the lovers must strive against a brutal evil that is dogging their every footstep. Note: This book was originally published elsewhere under the same title.My Thoughts and ReviewIt was my first time reading Compo's work, and I must say after reading this one, I am now looking into other books of hers.
