As book 4 opens, Kate Stillman is picking up her nemesis Duncan MacDowell at the Denver airport. Duncan, the brother of book three's Colin, is the leader of HOWL (Honoring "Our Werewolf Legacy), the group who champions were-were relationships and maintaining werewolf secrecy from the human world. Duncan, on the other hand, leads the mostly male WOOF (Werewolves Optimizing Our Future), who want to let the general public in on their furry secret and who are in favor of mating with humans. When the two are stranded overnight in an isolated cabin in a plot-convenient blizzard, they hit the sheets and begin a romantic relationship they both fear is doomed before it even starts.
The plot follows Kate and Duncan as they eventually make their way through the snowdrifts to the first-ever worldwide were-con, which is being held by the Stillman pack. The reader knows from page one that the two will reach their inevitable HEA. It's just a matter of how bumpy their road to romance will be.
As in previous books, a villain shows up late in the story and doesn't pose too much of a threat--but more than in the previous book. A few characters from previous books show up on the fringes of the action, but most of the scenes are between xx and Duncan--so not much action, except the bedroom kind.
This book is typical of the series--light, humorous, and talky, with elements of darker emotions and a pinch of violence. Click HERE to read the first two chapters.
