Reviewed by: Twigs

Chloe Carpenter isn't like other women. She can communicate with animals. A gift she unwrapped following one of her frequent dances with death. In her otherwise wacky life, she's finally found a semblance of sanity working at the Plum Beach Wildlife Park, where her unique talents can make life or death differences for the animals in her care. That semblance is shattered when a new veterinarian roars into the park in his spiffed up sports car and sets his golden gaze on her. If she had her way, he'd roar right back out. Problem: He's her new coworker and he's saved her life twice - in the past twenty-four hours. Zane Marshall, Enforcer for the Pacific Pack of purebred werewolves, has a job to do - figure out who or what is mutilating the young men of Plum Beach. With orders to find the woman who talks to animals, he accepts a position working alongside the fiery Chloe Carpenter, a female who ignites his interest far more than he ever expected. Remarkably, she's the one elusive female with potential to bring meaning and passion to his empty existence. Problem: She despises him. Together, they're forced to unravel a mystery of supernatural proportions, a murderous mystery with eternal implications for everyone. In the process, they discover opposites really do attract. Major Problem: Zane is pledged to another woman, and she'll do anything to keep him from Chloe.

Loved Zane! Chole, I had a hard time dealing with. To me she seemed somewhat bratty and annoyingly difficult. Although I couldn't blame her too much. A mate she didn't ask for, a smitten vampire, and an evil someone after her for her particular talents, would make any girl a bit bitchy. An interesting twist on the typical werewolf. Will keep you turning the pages to see what happens next!


  1. I love dogs. Weredogs, regular dogs,bad dogs, happy dogs. I'm going to get your book. It sounds like a lot of fun, action and passion.

  2. Thank you, Mary Frances. I hope you do pick up a copy. I have a contest running on my BLOG right now with no entries. You might want to take a peek and sign up. At this point, the odds are good! (Very, very good)
