CALL OF THE HIGHLAND MOON

Image of Call of the Highland Moon (MacInnes Werewolves, Book 1)

Mix a wounded werewolf with
an animal rescuer, then strand
them in a blizzard and you've got a great, fast-paced tale. Castle's worldbuilding is superb and leaves readers wanting more.

Gideon MacInnes isn't sure he wants to take over the family business: He is, after all, a Scottish alpha werewolf charged with protecting humankind from evil. Then, while he's taking a break in wintry upstate New York, his power-crazed cousin sends assassins after him. Wounded, he seeks refuge.

Carly Silver, a romance bookstore owner and animal lover, isn't sure what to make of the creature that crawls to her door. She wrangles it home, hoping it survives the night. When she awakes with a naked man on her bed, she gets an education in all things paranormal. When a blizzard strands them together, she displays a strength that belies her size and situation. Can Carly embrace the wolf? (Sourcebooks, May, 384 pp., $6.99)
