When Lauren Kade met her boyfriend, he brainwashed her into thinking that werewolves were big, bad and nasty and needed to be put down. She joined him and his buddies hunting them. Then, when she killed a female werewolf she swore never to do so again. Now she tries to thwart their efforts while pretending to be one of them. She meets Daniel Cannon, one of the alpha’s of the Cannon pack. When he comes to her dental office for some teeth work, she can hardly believe how the big bad wolf could be so scared of a little drill. One night, while out ‘hunting’ she is kidnapped by Daniel and his pack. Now Daniel is spending time with her and the time is getting hotter and hotter. Daniel wants to believe she has reformed but the hunters are out for blood and need to be stopped. His pack is not so forgiving and has its own plans for Lauren. How can Daniel protect her from his pack and keep her from being killed? And it’s not his own pack he needs to protect her from.

One thing you will get from a Beverly Rae book is not only a hot, sensuous, highly erotic story but a bundle of laughs too. Oh, this talented author knows how to tickle the funny bone and has her characters mouthing off one witty comment after another. This story starts out with a bang…a few of them in fact as we get to know Connor right away. A big, alpha male with needs, he uses women after he lost his mate to the hunters. This story will have you on the edge of your seat as the plot races through the pages and you are wondering what will happen to poor Lauren. She is not the lay-down-and-show-the-tummy submissive type. No, she stands up for herself and she is determined too. When they first meet, Lauren and Connor are spitting out the wit so fast you may get dizzy but you will certainly be laughing. I did get a little put off with her telling Daniel so many times, that she was sorry for the killing she’d made a year ago, but I guess Daniel needed that reassurance. There are a number of great secondary characters too who also have their own special type of wit and the sex scenes…well, let’s just say that I am happy my laptop survived the heat! A great story and I hope to read more from this talented writer.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
