The Wolf Hunt is a breathtaking and romantic adventure. When Marie Penthievre of Chalendrey is abducted and taken to Brittany's court, she vows to never dishonor her family by marrying a Breton. There is only one who might change her mind: Tiarnan of Talensac, a handsome and noble knight . . . and a werewolf. But Tiarnan marries someone else -- and when his new wife learns of his secret, she betrays him. When the widow joines forces with Tiarnan's enemy, Marie realizes something is dreadfully wrong. Only she is clear-headed enough to rescue Tiarnan and return him to his rightful status -- but can she do so before it is too late?
Gillian Bradshaw's father, an American Associated Press newsman, met her mother, a confidential secretary for the British embassy, in Rio de Janeiro. She was born in Washington DC in 1956, the second of four children. They didn't move around quite as much as one might expect after such a beginning: Washington was followed merely by Santiago, Chile, and two locations in Michigan. Gillian attended the University of Michigan, where she earned her BA in English and another in Classical Greek, and won the Hopwood Prize for fiction with her first novel, "Hawk of May." She went on to get another degree at Newnham College, Cambridge University, England in Greek and Latin literature, and she sold her first novel while preparing for exams. She decided to stay in Cambridge another year to write another novel and think about what to do for a Real Job. However, while there, she discovered she could live on her income as a novelist and also met her husband, who was completing his doctorate in physics. Between books and children she never did get a Real Job, and she's been writing novels ever since. She and her husband now live in Coventry. They have four children and a dog.
Praise for "The Wolf Hunt"
""The Wolf Hunt "is the captivating tale of a woman's journey through the twisted paths of the medieval forests where the everyday is overwhelmed by the supernatural, and where only love and loyalty can keep the darkness at bay. . . and the wolf from your throat. If you love the fables of the medieval world, then this book will enchant you." --Sara Douglass
"Bradshaw is one of a few authors who can take a snippet of history at any time in the past and turn it into a novel worth reading . . . . This is a beautifully written, lyrical novel about an often brutal time. Each character is fully realized and the story, as embellished by Bradshaw, is both entertaining and historically accurate. Although the ending is predictable (this is obviously not Bradshaw's doing, but Marie de France's), getting there is all the fun." --"The Historical Novels Review"
"Bradshaw solidly grounds her historical fiction, but still lards it with plenty of fairy-tale excitement. Readers will have no trouble guessing the 'secret' of the wolf, but that doesn't detract from the fun." --"Publishers Weekly"
"Gillian Bradshaw takes an obscure historical footnote and embellishes it into an intricate, multilayered tale." --"The Romantic Times"
