I received this eBook as a member giveaway through LibraryThing.

I had asked for this book as a giveaway on the strength of the title, as my partner has a fixation on Russia, speaks the language and twice had long trips there when younger, and I was hoping for a book which gave one a feel for the country.

I didn't, though, get any sense of the country, as it could be set almost anywhere. All you'd have to do is substitute any other country's local criminal gangs, police/army and characters' names for the ones here and it would read just as well with nothing added or lost.

Having said that it is a reasonably well plotted little romantic thriller, sort of what I'd imagine an up-market Mills and Boon to be like (not that I've ever actually read one). The characters are likeable, although the two main ones, especially Chelsea are far too talented to be entirely realistic and the plot device to make Chelsea want to escape London, broke after being defrauded of her fortune and framed for defrauding others at the same time so on the run from both the police and gangsters, doesn't ring entirely true for someone described as being so intelligent and independent.

But I suppose that's what most readers of this type of fiction are looking for, escapism rather than realism. There is also a totally unsurprising twist at the end, which I guessed less than a third of the way through the book.

Overall a pleasant enough way to waste some time, and if you like this sort of fiction add another half star or so to my review.

Chelsea returns home to take control of her multi-million pound trust fund only to find that her stepfather has swindled her and the police believe she was in collusion with him. She becomes embroiled with organized crime and is whisked away to Moscow by a Russian bad guy with charisma and sex appeal. This love story of Chelsea trying to balance her good girl save the world beliefs against her desire for Vladimir the “bad guy” are intense and believable but wouldn’t make sense so easily in such a short read except for the twist at the end of the story. This was an easy fun to read enjoyable romance with a bit of foreign flavor.

I received this book for free on LibraryThing in exchange for an honest review.

Spoiler alert!


I was so torn as to what I thought about the characters, and therefore the story, until the end. If the boyfriend was really the “bad guy” that he seemed then it would make the heroine, and therefore the story, seem shallow and disappointing. But really, she had the same dilemma until she found out what her “hero” was really like and what he was really up to. So, I was very excited and pleased when I read the unexpected twist at the end. Regardless, this story was addicting and engaging. I love how the title is such a perfect fit for the story. This awesome crime/romance novel is a must read for anyone who enjoys this genre!

Loved this story and stayed up late to finish reading it. The two main characters spark straightaway. Although Vladimir rescues Chelsea from a dangerous situation and whisks her away to Russia, she's no pushover and stands up for herself pretty well. And even though Vladimir tries to bankroll her, she finds her own way of supporting herself.

The story has everything, murder, intrigue, passion, but also some humour.

What I also like is that you're kept guessing all the way through, as to who are good guys or bad guys.

The scenes in London at the beginning have a few of the usual things you see from non-British authors. Like "Blocks" instead of "Streets/Roads", "check" instead of "cheque". And also an amusing typo, where Chelsea has a t-shirt which says "Stop Global Worming".

But these are minor points and don't detract in anyway from the story.

NB. Received from the author in return for an honest review

This book is full of adventure and romance. The heroine is one tough lady who can hold her own, but she is also vulnerable and needy towards Vladimir. Some of the main characters were a little hokey, especially Slim.

I liked it. I didn't love it but I didn't hate it. At times the main characters seemed a little superficial. I just felt like maybe something was missing. I did love Vlad's group of friends and I'm happy that their stories will be told. Overall it was a fun and easy read.

I was in this so deep. This book was fun and confusing. I absolutely loved this. Only wondering if they finally found the stepfather? Now I have to get the next one. So thank you. I will be watching for new ones to come out. Chelsea is what can I say, well you are going to have to read, It is well worth it.

Oh dear I'm going to buck the trend! I received this book in exchange for a review. Firstly I didn't realise that it came under the heading of adult fiction. I wouldn't have selected it for review if I'd know that.
The first page I thought was completely over done. After that I started getting into the story and thought it could be quite good but then everything went wrong with no sign of getting any better. I gave up at page 30 (or there abouts).

Wildcat in Moscow starts with Chelsea finding out that her stepfather had swindled her entire trust and left her owing money to drug dealers and under investigation for the swindles he did in her name. She finds herself in quite a mess; the banks want their money and the police pick her up for questioning as her name is on all the papers her stepfather used to create dummy companies with and defraud investors. The local Colombian drug leader not only wants his money her stepfather owes her; he also wants to hurt her or sell her into slavery.

She meets Vadlimir at his club. She is looking for anyone that might know where her stepfather hid the assets he had taken from her. Her instincts are to trust Vadl and he becomes the hero that rescues her and takes her to Moscow where the action continues non-stop to the end of the tale. He is a great hero and so tender and sweet that one could only wish to find a lover such as him for yourself.

The dialog is excellent; the plot is exciting in this non-stop action packed novel. The good guys are a team that works to right wrongs and the bad guys they take out are criminals to make this a great story. The romance is hot and fun too with a touch of humor too.

“Wildcat in Moscow” by Ellen Whyte

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

This book was great! I absolutely enjoyed everything about it. This full-length novel had romance, violence, and organized crime – all this put together equaled loads of excitement. I give it 4.5 STARS overall, for being such a good read. I would recommend “Wildcat in Moscow” by Ellen Whyte to Adult readers who like Romance and Mafia-type stories.

Chelsea is a young and naturally beautiful girl that traveled the world trying to create art, save endangered animals and encourage fair trade amongst people. After her mother’s death, Chelsea went to collect her trust fund, only to find out that her stepfather stole all her money and started debts in her name. When dangerous people come looking for their money, Chelsea finds herself in a lot of trouble. She became known as “Wildcat” throughout all of Moscow, because she kicked a drug lord in his family jewels and took out the rest of his office as well. Chelsea did all that in self-defense because they were going to kill her over unpaid money. With people wanting revenge on Chelsea for her Wildcat ways and a debt that she was stuck with because of her loser stepfather, Vlad and his team need to help protect Chelsea.

The characters in “Wildcat in Moscow” were fabulous! I loved Chelsea; she was such a kickass protagonist! I thought Chelsea was wicked cool being able to knock some grown men down with her ninja skills. Vladimir was “colossal in every way,” and I will just get it out there now and say that HE. WAS. HOT! Throughout the story, I was routing for Chelsea and Vladimir’s love. I did not want Chelsea fighting her feelings for Vlad because she didn’t like the things he involved himself with. I wanted them to be together regardless of all outside forces trying to take them down. I also thought that Vlad’s team was amazing; they were just a bunch of fun men and they instantly accepted Chelsea as “one of the team.” And…they were pretty hot too!

I think the author did a great job at world building. As I said before, I loved the characters but I also loved the setting. Everything was just great. “Wildcat in Moscow” by Ellen Whyte, should be added to your To Be Read list – especially if you enjoy the Romance and organized crime scene. This is an adult book, however, because of some violence and sex. It was not an Erotica, but the sex scenes were detailed to the point that I would not recommend “Wildcat in Moscow” to Young Adults – this novel needs a mature audience. This 4.5 STAR book was just really good overall. Check it out!

I was hooked from the beginning - which is how it must be for me to finish a book! Wildcat is a sexy, action-packed, fast-paced romance novel. Full of intrigue, suspense, and romance. If you're looking for a good romance novel that takes you away - this is it! I look forward to reading more of Ellen Whyte's work!

I read the free Katz tales book about Boris, then Miracle Cat and now this. Wildcat is nothing like Katz Tales! Katz is all sweet and fun cat stories; Wildcat is a good contemporary romance with Chelsea, a heroine who is a bit like Modesty Blaise. Love her and I love Vlad, the dark hero. Good fun! It says the first in a series on Kobo. Looking forward to the next one.

Wildcat in Moscow the latest fiction written by syndicated writer Ellen Whyte is a riveting story full of suspense, love and drama. Although Ellen often writes mostly about cats, dogs and current issues, her talent in writing fictions is nevertheless very much noteworthy.

Although she is not in the same league as writers like J.K. Rowling, Ellen is in a class of her own, very unique in producing published works that are worth taking note of and Wildcat in Moscow is no exception.

Wildcat in Moscow is a story that will keep readers glued to the story until the very end. It's a real page-turner of a story. You will keep reading it until the very end of the story. That was what I was experiencing reading Wildcat in Moscow.

I often find myself wishing that all Ellen Whyte's published books not only available in ebook format but also in print format so that readers who don't take to the ebook format and/or cannot afford a smart gadget to buy the ebooks would still be able to access to all her published books in print format. Hopefully, all of Ellen's ebooks will be available in print format in the near future, so that they can reach out to more readers and fans, be it in Malaysia or overseas.

Every now and then, I like to curl up with a good romance novel. I couldn't with this one, with it being an e-book an all. BUT I did enjoy it. Once I found some quiet time, I was hooked. I'm no professional but I reckon contemporary romances are every so much harder to write.

I really took ages to getting round to buying this because it wasn't available on Kobo, but it is now! I ended up buying it from smashwords and truthfully wasn't setting my expectations very high, for various reasons.

So now I've read the book, I conclude I like Chelsea (a conservationist and artist who has common sense to boot), think Vladimir is hot (he positively trashes a scumbag who roughed Chelsea up) and want to visit Russia (the food sounds amazing).

Good job Ellen Whyte. I will definitely buy subsequent books.
