July 27, 2009Award winning author Deborah MacGillivray has once again gifted her readers with a mystical magical romance that transcends time and the heart. The third Mershan brother, Trevelyn, is determined to do his part in the revenge plot of taking down the Montgomerie clan by romancing one of the daughters, Raven, and getting close to her brother and father while he buys out the controlling interest in their family company. Trev was not prepared to fall totally under the enchanting Raven’s spell, however.
Raven has always been the naive one in the family but after being burnt by her ex-husband she is leery when the sinfully handsome Trevelyn shows an interest in her. She is no match for his charms though, and ends up in his arms and in bed with him despite the mechanical gypsy’s warning about a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Trev and Raven both seem to recognize a familiarity with each other and Trev’s waking dreams are cautioning him that this time around he should be more careful with Raven’s heart.
Creative Deborah MacGillivray always tells a great story and this book is no exception as she skillfully weaves her plot to include aspects and characters from the first books in the Sisters of Colford Hall series. Darkly dangerous Trevelyan is a true alpha hero and he meets his match in the seductively bewitching Raven. The subtle paranormal elements are real enough to send shivers down the spine and spur anticipation of what will happen next. Allusions to fairy tales, gypsies and unusual pets including a one legged pelican, a miniature horse and Ms. MacGillivray’s trademark cats add a bit of light hearted wit. A WOLF IN WOLF’S CLOTHING is an entertaining stand alone book but why deprive yourself the treat of the first two books in the Sisters of Colford Hall series, THE INVASION OF FALGANNON ISLE and RIDING THE THUNDER? Also, a fortune telling gypsy has foretold of a fourth book in this beguiling series in the near future.

An Extraordinary Read! *****
Trevelyan (Sinclair) Mershan is a man on a mission. His mission…revenge. Along with his brothers, Trevelyan is dead set on bringing down the Montgomerie family by seducing then destroying the “meddling Montgomerie” sisters. He has his sights zeroed in on Raven Montgomerie, the beautiful, quiet, and most vulnerable of the sisters.
Raven Montgomerie prefers the quiet life of painting and socializing with gypsies in the English countryside. While she could live in luxury, she chose to live in the estate cottage rather than in the main house of Colford Hall. However she doesn’t live alone. She shares the beautiful country cottage with an odd menagerie of pets; two cats named Chester and Pyewacket, a one-legged seagull named Atticus, and a lively miniature pony named Marvin. (I love these names!)
What Raven needs is a knight in shining armor. Little does this timid woman know, her knight will be riding into her life in a shining Lamborghini Murciélago. Then when Raven and Trevelyan first meet, sparks ignite a fire and the instant he touches her, their fates are sealed.
In this third installment of the Sisters of Colford Hall series, I found myself completely absorbed in the story of Raven and Trevelyan! I have read the other two in the series and even though I completely enjoyed them, I have to say A Wolf in Wolf’s Clothing is by far my favorite! A magical love story that even includes a ghost named Annie. (Great name!)
Ms. MacGillivray has a talent for creating stories that clutch the hearts of her readers and in A Wolf in Wolf’s Clothing, you won’t be disappointed. She has woven a tale of passion, love, and desire that grips you from the first page to the very end.
