WOLF WITH BENEFITS
Laurenston is the queen of paranormal romances that mix over-the-top humor, eccentric characters and sexy, crazy plots to produce addictive stories you won’t want to put down. Her characters are delightfully flawed and contain a sense of realism that will have you thinking, “I know someone like that.” Multiple hilarious storylines will leave you in stitches as fast-paced action and smoking hot love scenes keep this wildly popular and successful series more than capable of delivering the goods.
Wolf shifter Ricky Lee Reed has come to New York to work for his cousin’s security company. Ricky’s not looking for anything more than a good time, but when he happens upon a she-jackal who makes his wolf stand up and beg, all bets are off. Toni Jean-Louis Parker feels like a nobody in her genius family of prodigies. Tired of playing guard/nursemaid to her siblings, she obtains a job with the Carnivores hockey team and finds herself on the receiving end of Ricky Lee’s very personal bodyguard talents. When Toni’s family falls victim to a series of break-ins and attempted kidnappings, Ricky and Toni are shocked to discover the culprit is closer to home then they could have ever imagined.
