Howling at the Twight
Author: Brenda Bryce
Series: Going Nowhere
Chrys came to Nowhere to visit her brother and his family. There are werewolves in Nowhere, and now, through a quirk of fate - and the bloody murder of her brother and most of her family - Chrysanthemum Hollister is one of them. The only family she has left is her orphaned niece. Just when she thought things couldn't get any worse, Chrys and her niece get kidnapped by a werewolf seeking to make her his mate.
When Donovan Vitello, the North American Werewolf Clan's hunter, finds a woman covered in the blood of a killer and in the throes of her first shift into a werewolf, he knows the clock is ticking. He walks into a scene where a werewolf is murdered, and the she-wolf who killed him is unable to handle the changes of the transformation. He is immediately drawn to her. He'll do anything he can to help her survive and make her his genetic mate. His attraction to the beautiful red wolf cannot be denied, but more than that, she may just be the only one who can save his life.
Her orphaned baby niece is not a werewolf, which makes it imperative for Chrys to shift back to human form. No problem, she can do that, right? Wrong. In order to shift, Chrys needs the help of the man who changed her. That man is dead at her own hands. How can Donovan help her?
I really liked the first book in this series, but this book is really even better than the first. The story is solid. The hero and the heroine are great together and the sexy love scenes are exciting page tuners. Surprisingly for a suspense novel, there is a good amount of humor in the book and a lot of fun to read.
