This original novella book was published way back in 2000. I just love pulling books off the shelf and checking them out again and again. This one was filled with humor, however some may find it not for them, as there are some forced love scenes. I however give the author points for balancing the humor with the sadness and pulling it altogether in a well done piece, especially for her first erotic romance.
Jeannie is stuck in an elevator when it gets stopped in a blackout. Unfortunately it is just before the full moon and she is stuck in the elevator with a man who tells her he is a werewolf. Although he apologizes over and over again he can't help was is going to happen next. He is overcome with excitement at just the smell of Jeannie and the two end up having sex.
Fast forward several weeks later and Michael, alpha to the Wyndham Werewolf Pack has been desperately searching for Jeannie to get her before his enemy finds out she is his mate. When he finds her, she thinks he's just as bad as a nutcase as she thought he was in the elevator. Michael is forced to kidnap her. Can Jeannie ever come to terms with what Michael is and what she is to him?
In this novella MaryJanice introduces us to the Wyndham Werewolf Pack. Pack leader, Michael Wyndham, is being pressured to find his "mate for life". When trapped in an elevator during a full moon with a woman at the peak of her cycle, he believes he has found his mate. She has other ideas in spite of the heat they generate.

Love’s Prisoner by Mary Janice Davidson

To My Readers:I’ve always been intrigued by good guys who have to do bad, and werewolves are prime examples of that. It’s tough to be a sensitive, 21st century guy when you turn furry, howl at the moon, and crave raw meat once a month. It’s even worse if you’re in love with someone who not only thinks you’re delusional, but at times actively despises you. Stick two people like this in an elevator, add one power outage, and watch the sparks fly… I hope you’ll email me or visit my website to tell me what you thought about Love’s Prisoner. I love to hear from my readers, and I like getting suggestions on what you think I should write next.

To My Readers:I was watching James Bond do something impossible in one of his movies when I thought, “This would be a lot more believable if he was a vampire.” And just like that, this story was born. Thanks to Alexandria Kendall for letting me play in her Secrets sandbox with my handcuffs and handsome hunks. And thanks to the readers who said, “When are you going to do another vampire story?”
