Vicki Lewis Thompson’s WEREWOLF IN ALASKA is a light and entertaining tale of overcoming prejudice and finding happiness.
Sculptor Rachel Miller and werewolf Jake Hunter live across a lake from each other in Polecat, Alaska where they share a love/hate relationship. Rachel loves watching Jake skinny dip at night, but has a problem with his standoffish manner. Jake is drawn to Rachel after purchasing one of her first sculptures, a wolf that looks surprisingly like Jake in his shifted form. But he refuses to act on his interest because more than anything else, Jake believes a relationship between shifters and humans is dead wrong. Then Jake stops a bear attack on Rachel, ends up wounded and in her care and things between them are forever changed.
Vicki Lewis Thompson’s WEREWOLF IN ALASKA is a quick, light and witty romance with just enough paranormal fun to make it interesting. But it also has an underlying story of overcoming prejudice that colors the entire story. While Rachel’s character is easy to like and root for, Jake’s character’s strong stance on keeping his werewolf bloodline pure make is far harder to like some of the decisions he makes and things he says to Rachel before he realizes he can’t live without her, human or not.
WEREWOLF IN ALASKA is howling good fun for all ages.
