Does he want her, or is he after something else? As an archivist in a small museum, the biggest thing Helen Jurist has to deal with each year is the Annual Donor Gala. When her museum becomes a flurry of activity, due to the nearby discovery of a large Viking hoard, Helen finds the additional responsibility more of a pain than an honour. She doesn’t know anything about Vikings, or what makes the hoard so unusual. She just wants to get through the gala without her boss catching the drapes on fire. Nobody from the public is supposed to have access to the find, but try telling that to Rune Helsen. A handsome Dane with wolfish desires, he walks around like he owns the place. He’s Helen’s worst nightmare—if only her traitorous body wasn’t so attracted to him. But Rune has a secret, one that brought him to see the artifacts for more than just scholarly interest. Unknown to Helen, there’s so much more at stake than just pulling off a successful evening. A whole world she never knew existed, a world of vampires and shifters, stands on the precipice—and there’s something in the Cutler Hoard that could burn it all down.
4 out of 5 (very good)
To Trust a Wolf is the first novella in the Unnatural Alliances series, and it gets the series started with a bang. We meet Helen Jurist, an archivist/party planner at the museum, whose schedule has been thrown off kilter with the finding of a Viking hoard. Many people are interested in it, but up until now, no one has been allowed to see it.
This is an intricate story that not only gives you a story to sink your teeth into, but also paves the way for further novellas/books in the series. Very well written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt my reading flow, this was a thoroughly enjoyable story. I definitely enjoyed it, and look forward to reading more in this series.

With Danielle Hardgrave’s passion for storytelling and tendency to daydream, it’s a surprise it's taken her this long to turn that passion into a career. She was born and raised in Victoria, BC. When not writing, Danielle’s usually annoying her roommate or trying to figure out how to play tennis/box/longboard/whatever else she’s picked up that week. Caldwell Publishing is the result of two sets of talent and one dream. It combines the writing of Danielle Hardgrave with the design expertise of Olivia Conway. The result? Sizzling tales of romance to help you slip away from reality—if only for a little while.
