Red and Her Wolf by Marie Hall

Kingdom #3
     Long ago there lived a beautiful child. Her name was Violet. Fair of skin, with blonde hair and large blue eyes. Born of wild magic, she was a woman with a child’s heart. Innocent and lovely, but not at all what she seemed--you see Violet went by another name: The Heartsong.
     She was the child of fairy magic, the physical manifestation of all fae kinds unbridled power. Cosseted and pampered, she grew up in isolation, never knowing who she really was, or why there were those who’d seek to harm her. 
     Ewan of the Blackfoot Clan is a wolf with a problem. He’s been sent to kill the Heartsong, but the moment he lays eyes on the blonde beauty he knows he’ll defy the evil fae he works for to claim Violet as his own.
     This is the tale of Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf, as it really happened...

This book is so good. The third in the Kingdom series, and so far the best with the best plot.

This book at first glance might just seem like a lust filled book about a werewolf lusting after a young maiden. It is not. This story is way more complex that even I had thought.

Violet, the red-riding hood of the story, is not just a innocent girl she is born from dark fairy magic. She is called The Heartstrong. The blue fairy fears her power and wants her dead, the black fairy craves her power and wants it for herself.

Enter Ewan, the wolf. (kind of a werewolf) He is sent to capture The Heartstrong. But as soon as he sees her pale skin, blue eyes and fair hair he knows her to be his mate. But he can't have her. She is hidden away for centuries on earth until the right time.

After Ewan has Violet back in his arms he is tasked by Danika to aid Vi in unlocking her power and delivering her safely to the black fairy so she can end the rein of the black fairy once and for all.

We meet the Jinni, the main character of the next books well as being revisited by Alice and Hatter. (whom I love so so much)

The underlying plot of the story is just so good. Yeah there's a hefty amount of lusting going on, but Violet doesn't instantly fall for Ewan, and there was more to the story than the two main characters hooking up. Something that I think most romance stories are missing. I look forward to reading the rest of the books in this series.
