While this is being touted as a werewolf book, there isn’t much in the way of werewolf dynamics or culture until more than halfway through. The tale is interesting and straightforward, despite a few awfully convenient plot twists. A well-handled, twisty subplot and satisfying ending help to make this an enjoyable read. However, the sex therapy the hero offers the heroine to help her overcome 30-plus years of physical, mental and sexual torture was rather off-putting for this reviewer.
Shelley is a killer. Never mind that her “crime” freed her from 35 years of brutal captivity — the bounty hunters on her trail don’t care. For the first time in her life, she is on her own, free to put the past behind her and explore what it means to be a werewolf.
James Riley is dead tired and feeling every ounce of his new responsibility as Wolf Creek pack alpha. He’s not too tired, though, to notice his sexy waitress is a werewolf — one who strangely doesn’t recognize him as one of her own kind. After his questions rattle her composure and get her fired, Shelley figures the least James can do is drive her to the next town, but he wants more. And despite her fear, something inside her is irresistibly drawn to his commanding yet gentle presence. But her past will not be denied … and her secrets demand a price paid in blood. (SAMHAIN, Apr., 256 pp., $15.00)
