Fox's tale of paranormal beings and primal exploration lurking under the surface of a quaint New England town is a winner! The strong heroine and hot panther hero are a combustible combination. This book is hot enough to steam up the windows and exciting enough that you'll ruin your manicure.
Jaclyn Vasenty is afraid that her personal history may prevent her from inheriting a cosmetics company. So she vows to leave her naughty ways behind and moves into a charming gated community in Serene, N.H.
She's surprised to learn the gates are locked at sunset. Before long, an erotic appetite that barely seems human overcomes her. That's because the town is home to a collection of inhuman sensual beings: vampires, werewolves, witches, demons and shapeshifters. As tension between species rises, Jaclyn must call on all of her strengths and join forces with Slyck, the panther shifter who's been exploring erotic possibilities with her, if she wants to get out alive.
