Popular D.C. artist Savannah Carpenter is determined to discover how her sister Charlotte ended up in a coma at the hospital. The police think she accidentally fell, but Savannah thinks she may have been pushed. Charlotte was into something strange at the ultra-exclusive SandM club Eighteen, and Savannah hopes to uncover the truth. When she's caught trying to photograph the rich and famous clients as they enter the club, a wolf rescues Savannah from heavy-handed security guards.

Investigative reporter Lance Marshall thinks he scents a big story, and considering he's a werewolf, that's saying something. Intrigued by Savannah, Lance decides that he can help her and get his story, so the two of them join forces. Gaining entrance to the club isn't difficult, but getting out alive may be, for whatever is going on in there is the result of non-human machinations.

York's highly popular werewolf tales take an even more intriguing turn in this new story. The sexual tension is taut and the story crisp, which keeps up the momentum. The small side plot is an engrossing teaser for the next chapter in this quite compelling saga. (Jun., 352 pp., $6.99)
