There is something about her that intrigues not only him but his wolf as well. Jake knows that a relationship between the two of them is not going to happen because Alicia is human. When Jake sees a thug trying to get Alicia to leave the restaurant with him, Jake comes to her rescue. The more time they spend together it seems the closer they grow. When Alicia gets word that the mob boss will kill Jake if she does not leave him, she is worried that it will happen so she skips town.

On her own Alicia faces many changes and surprises; she comes to know that she needs Jake.
This is the eight installments of Ms. Spear's Werewolf series. I have loved each and every one of the books in this series. This story is a love-at-first-sight kind of story. The humor between the two main characters had me laughing out loud. There was enough action to keep you on the edge of your seat. I have not been disappointed in any of the books in this series. They are all keepers. Book nine will be out March of 2012 it is titled A Seal in Wolf's Clothing.
