What if you found out that you were descended from a long line of clandestine fighters, and that your family was still at war? Or that the love of your life was something other than human?
August Archer thinks she's a normal teenage girl—even though she has been having disturbing and erotic dreams about werewolves lately. Still grieving over the loss of her bookish, charming father, and wondering over his final gift of a red hooded cloak, August is uprooted from her New York City apartment to a tiny town in Maryland, and the rambling Victorian house where he grew up.
There she meets a wise woman with a gift for herbal medicine, the gentle old man who keeps the house in repair and the grounds thriving, and her new neighbor: an enigmatic, irresistibly fascinating man who refuses to talk to her, yet who seems to know her better than she knows herself, and fuels her most intense romantic fantasies.
But it's when August begins to coax her feisty Scottish grandmother out of her self-imposed catatonia that a strange tale of werewolves and hunters emerges--one in which the man of her dreams may be her family's oldest enemy—in this modern-day telling of the Red Riding Hood story.

5 Stars With Every Read Through
Bravo, H.L.! August is a beautifully written character, and you find a way to make her story absolutely relatable. I often times felt as if you'd managed to pull pages from my personal journal, in terms of young love, frustration and growing into my own skin. Sexy, meaningful and fun- I give Red August 5 stars every time. Excited to read your next installment! :)
