Werewolf Whisperer by Ericka Scott
Celebrity dog trainer, Serena O'Toole,
had the perfect life. She has a boyfriend, kind of, and a job she loves,
well, she used to love it. And the audition for a national television spot
could skyrocket her dog training show, “Woof”, to the stars…if it doesn't
bore her to death first. Then, when she thought things couldn't get any
worse, a sexy-voiced stranger calls to tell her that her brother, Michael,
is missing. He's hiding in the desert outside his new home in Eclipse,
California . It only takes her a few minutes to pack her bags and head off
to a town not marked on any map.
The last thing Jackson Hardy wanted to do was to involve another civilian. But, unless the horror writer, Michael O'Toole, was found in the next two days, he would die. But, from the moment Serena's black VW Beetle rolls into town, Jackson knows he's lost his heart. He can't keep his mind, or his hands, off her. She's beautiful, talented, irresistible. Everyone in town notices her charms… Everyone . But Jackson knows to fall in love with her, and make love to her, would be a fatal mistake.
When Michael is found, Serena decides to stay and get to know Jackson better. When she looks in his eyes, she realizes he exudes a sex appeal she is helpless to deny. Nor does she want to. But for a man who can't keep his hands off her, Jackson is sure in a surprising hurry for her to leave. But someone in Eclipse is equally determined for her to stay…forever.

Serena O’Toole is a professional dog trainer with her very own television show. She is very close to getting a slot on a national network, but her producer is taking her show in a different direction, and she doesn’t like it; so the audition for that network slot is a total flop. Then, she finds out that her boyfriend has a wife, after she was so careful to make sure that she wasn’t “the other woman”, again. To top off one of her worst days, she gets a call that her brother is missing, and has been for about a month. The rescue team has spotted him, but he is running and hiding from them in the desert and they need her to come to Eclipse and help them catch him, because he is sick and delusional. Serena quickly packs her bag and heads off to Eclipse, a town that is strangely not on the map.
Jackson is the sheriff of Eclipse and he really doesn’t want to call Serena and involve another outsider. However, if he is going to save Mike’s life, he has no choice. From the moment that Serena walks into the sheriff's office, he knows that he and his heart are in big trouble. She is beautiful, intelligent, witty, and he wants nothing more than to either mate with her or run her out of town as quickly as he can.
Serena quickly finds Mike and decides to stay at his house until he is home from the hospital. In the few days that follow, Serena becomes more and more confused by all of the odd things happening around Eclipse. Her confusion quickly turns to horror and she knows that she must get away from Eclipse as quickly as possible or she will die. The problem is, she has fallen in love with Jackson and isn't sure she can live the rest of her life without him.
The Werewolf Whisperer by Ericka Scott grabbed my attention on the first page, and I was hooked until the very last. Ms. Scott has done an exceptional job of creating an imaginative story, with a unique plot filled with suspense and passion, strong and admirable characters, and the perfect dialogue and descriptions to keep this book flowing at a nice even pace that had me thinking about it, even when I wasn’t reading. Jackson is a kind man, struggling with his inner demon and his feelings for Serena. He is a delightful mixture of both alpha and beta male. Serena is a strong, independent woman, with quick wit and intelligence, and the backbone to make it through life’s troubles. Although they have a huge hurdle between them, they still manage to fall sweetly in love and share a deep and emotional passion, in the midst of a life-threatening situation. This book and characters could easily be turned into a wonderful series and I would be the first to pick up each copy of each new book! I look forward to reading more works by Ericka Scott. If you enjoy erotic paranormal romance of the werewolf kind, I highly recommend The Werewolf Whisperer!
