WILD ABOUT YOU
This wonderful addition to the Love at Stake series focuses on the hero shapeshifter, his family and history, with the vampires taking a backseat. Sparks offers up a fantastic, entertaining story with plenty of old faces and some quite intriguing new ones, all with their own unique powers.
Werebear Howard Barr has yet to find a woman to share his life. His grandfather believes it is because of a curse, one that can only be broken by the Guardian of the Forest, a descendant of the one who created the weres. Elsa Bjornberg, co-star of a home renovation show, has also heard tell of an unbelievable curse. But it’s not until vampire Shanna Dragonesti convinces the show to renovate a house for her — and Elsa meets Howard — that Elsa begins to believe the stories. When Howard’s desire for revenge puts his loved ones in danger, Elsa may be the only one who can help him. (AVON, Dec., 384 pp., $7.99)
