The sequel to The Werewolf Whisperer! Jazmine Carmichael is the leader of a pack of werewolves living in Eclipse, California. When two of the pack members die under mysterious circumstances, she’s determined to get answers.

Blaze Petrofsky and two other researchers often played a game of what if. What if werewolves were real? They set about creating the virus, meeting failure after failure, until he buys an old trunk in an auction. In a small silver tin, he finds werewolf cream. One of his colleagues tries it out, and it works. Before Blaze can look for a cure, he’s removed from the project and the government takes over.

Now, five years later, the nightmare has come back to haunt him when a beautiful, mysterious, sexy woman brings him a wolf to autopsy. A wolf who, on closer inspection, is human. When Jazmine is arrested, Blaze follows the clues she left behind, hoping to pay back the debt he owes for rediscovering and unleashing lyncanthropy. But is he too late to save the woman he’s come to love?

In the middle of the Mojave desert is a town called Eclipse. It may look like any other small town, but the residents who live there are nothing like the typical neighbors one would expect to find. They are all werewolves. Rounded up by the government and forced to live secluded they have come to rely on each other for everything. So when some of the pack members start dying mysteriously and no one in town can get any answers, Jazmine decides to take matters into her own hands. She locates a wolf expert and recruits him to help her determine a cause of death, but sparks sizzle between them. Can their love last when she finds out his secret?

First let me just bow down and say FABULOUS!!!! It has been a long time since I have read a werewolf story that had such a unique spin and kept me engaged as well as this one did. A great story with characters guaranteed to pull you in and leave you gasping. The plot was great and complete with twists and turns you rarely find in a short story. Perfect for paranormal lovers the world over, the only thing that would have made it better is if it were longer. I would have loved to know more about the town and the residents who live in it.

Kudos to the author for creating such a wonderfully imaginative story and the ability to pull it off so well. Smoking hot love scenes gave it just the bump it needed to make this story truly great. Keep them coming, as I will be looking for more.
