I’m asked this question a lot. And I usually answer with a long drawn out view of why, but this time I’m going to simply say, “Why not?”
Wolves are loyal and protective and family-oriented. They’re playful, they work together as a team, and sure there’s a pecking order, but where is there not? They love their mate forever and ever and ever.
They take care of the pack’s new litters as if the pups were their own. They teach them how to work and play and survive.
So what’s not to love?
But we’re talking about WERE-wolves. And that’s a similar story. Really. They still are wolves at heart, with the enhanced senses, but the moral obligation to mate for life, the loyalty, protectiveness, and love of their children and mate and pack members.
They’re also sexy, primal humans who love to play, work hard, and are more one with nature than most of their strictly human counterparts.
So what happens when a werewolf falls head over heels for a strictly human type? Nothing. He can’t. It’s not permitted. But you know what? Love has to find a way!
Isn’t that always the way? It can’t be easy for them or it’s just not fun. Think of it this way—wolfman falls in love with human woman. She falls in love with him. Hand-in-hand they walk into the sunset, happily ever after.
See? It won’t work. So we have to have problems. And Alicia Greiston’s got them. Big time.
Jake Silver is only trying to drop off his wildlife photography at the gallery across the street from a quaint, high-priced restaurant when he sees HER. There’s an instant attraction, but also she’s taking a photo of a license plate, and since he loves to photograph nature, he’s instantly curious.
Did I mention wolves are innately curious creatures?
But when she gets over her head in a confrontation with a Mob guy, Jake’s at her side, ready to take him on. And that’s only the beginning. He absolutely knows he shouldn’t take this infatuation any further.
But what if love at first sight truly exists? Even between a werewolf and a human? What if sometimes there’s just something about another human being…or werewolf being, that just seems to have that magical connection?
Then, if the two can get past all the obstacles—the rule of not changing a human into a werewolf at whim, and the rule of not getting stuck on another guy when Alicia’s already had two failed marriages—
well, just maybe they will end up walking into the sunset, hand-in-hand, happily ever after.
Or not. You can never tell how these things will go.
What do you think? Can a hot werewolf like Jake win over a human who is wary of relationships? Can he let go of his moral obligation to stay away from her when she’s strictly human and he is not? Can she
trust him to not get himself killed if the Mob decides he’s a loose cannon they need to get rid of?
Of course there’s a lot more twists and turns to the story, but I can’t say about all that.
I sure hope they can find a way to work it all out because they both deserve to find happiness. As do we all!
Hope your New Year is filled with joy!

However, the mob isn't entirely human either, and soon Alicia must flee for her life. When Alicia
