If paranormal erotica is your thing then Black Lace have just the book for you! Wildwood is a tale of two men, one beautiful forest and a choice that is as shocking as it is heart-warming.
Avril Shearing is a landscape gardener brought in to reclaim an overgrown woodland for the handsome and manipulative Michael Deverick. But among the trees lurks a tribe of environmental activists determined to stop anyone getting in, led by the enigmatic Ash who regards Michael as his mortal enemy.
Avril soon discovers that on the Kester Estate nothing is as it seems. Creatures that belong in dreams or in nightmares emerge after dark to prowl the grounds, and hidden in the heart of the wood is something so important that people will kill, or die, for it. Ash and Michael become locked in a deadly battle for the Wildwood - and for Avril herself.

This is the first book from Janine Ashbless that I've read - but it won't be the last!
I wasn't sure where Wildwood was going when I first starting reading it, but there is a bit of back story which is necessary to lead you into the main action.
Main character Avril is a tree surgeon and starts a brand new, ridiculously high paid job for a man called Michael Deverick. She doesn't particularly like him, but he offered her such a great package with the job that she couldn't refuse. Problem is, he's now trying to offer her HIS package. Not that she's not attracted to him, she just doesn't like him.
Things get more complicated for Avril as strange things start happening around the cottage on Michael's grounds that she's living in. Strange beings wander the vicinity leaving Avril wondering what on earth is going on. Particularly when she meets another strange being from the woods - Ash. He's some kind of eco-warrior, determined not to let her into the woods, despite her protests that she'd never destroy it.
Then begins a battle for the Wildwood. There's something in there that's worth fighting for, and Avril is drawn into the battle, and into the beds of both men. Who will win?
This was a fantastic book. As I said it took a few pages to get into it, but after that it was non-stop sexy action. I didn't want it to end!
- The supernatural element was different to anything else I've read.
- It ended too soon! I wanted to know what happened next.
- Bottom line
- A must-read. If you like erotic novels, pick this one up.
