Wounded Kiss, an all-new sexy and captivating paranormal romance from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Willow Winters is available now!
From USA Today best-selling author, Willow Winters, comes a tempting tale of fated love, lust-filled secrets and the beginnings of an epic war.
His chiseled jaw and silver gaze, I’ve only ever gotten a glimpse of, haunts both my nightmares and my dreams.
There’s a treaty between us and them; mere mortals and the ones who terrify but keep us safe. The contract demands that every year there’s an offering and this year I’ll walk across that stage presenting myself.
We have no idea what to expect if they choose someone, they haven’t in generations.
The only thing we know is that the ones they take belong to them forevermore. If chosen, you don’t come back, or so the story of the treaty goes.
Gather and present yourself.
This is the offering…
… and I… belong to him.

“Relax, Grace, we’re just switching people around. We’re only a few minutes away, but Devin thinks it’s best that you see him now.”
I don’t move. I don’t say anything as the heavy footsteps come quicker than I’m prepared for.
Devin’s faster than I can imagine. There wasn’t a moment for me to will my body to move or to run. The car tilts slightly as he climbs into the seat next to me. His masculine, woodsy scent drifts into my lungs and suffocates every thought. He’s tall, his jaw sharp and every inch of his corded muscles are showing with his sleeves rolled up. My chest rises and falls chaotically.
“You’ll be quiet until we get home.”
It’s all he says, the words spoken in a deep low tone and anger pulses inside of me, but something else takes over with a force I can’t describe.
“I’m scared,” I say, whispering the truth although it’s not for the same reasons I’ve been terrified throughout the day … this is something completely different. As if my body, even my soul, knows my life has been irrevocably changed simply because this man looked my way.“Don’t be,” he responds and that’s when his gaze meets mine for the first time. It’s sharp and silver and all-consuming.

Willow Winters is so happy to be a USA Today, Wall Street Journal and #1 Contemporary Best Selling Author!
Willow started writing after having her little girl, Evie, December 2015. All during her pregnancy with Evie she continued to read and she only wanted to read romance. She was reading a book a day — sometimes two.
In January 2016 Willow was staying up late with Evie and just thinking of all these stories. They came to her constantly so she finally sat down and just started writing. She always wanted to do it so she figured, why not? Today Willow cannot be happier for making that decision!

My Review of Wounded Kiss
Just a normal girl in a paranormal world!
The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🌎🌏🌍🌎🌎
Character development: 👤👤👤👤👤
The setting: The small town of Shadow Falls
The Hero: Devin – Alpha of the wolf pack that protects Shadow Falls from other supernatural creatures like vampires and witches. His Betas are Dom and Caleb.
The heroine: Gracie – is living with her best friend Lizzie. They have been best friends for years and since they both come from abusive backgrounds they moved in together and are working a year before starting college in order to save money.
The Love Story: The wolf shifter pack made an agreement with the town that in order to protect them, once a year they come and all the girls of a certain age are offered to the pack. Though they have not taken an offering in over 100 years. This year, both Gracie and Lizzie are taken.
I liked the fact that the Girls didn’t have any clue what the offering is about. So they don’t know if the wolves will use them as slaves, eat them, or if the shifters have some other nefarious purpose for taking them. The whole unknown aspect of the story drew me in.
I genuinely liked all the characters. Gracie was strong yet still afraid and even more afraid for her friend Lizzie. I also liked Lizzie who had her own story and issues, she was broken and terrified. The guys were dominant but extremely nice guys, so that was a plus. The book is quite hot and steamy, just the way I like and I also for some reason love it when normal girls are thrown into supernatural situations. I guess because I can imagine how they should act. Gracie was the perfect character for that. I wish the book was longer, but am exited to read more of this series!
I voluntarily read & reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts & opinions are my own.
