"A great start to a steamy new series."

Artemis Gray and his two children wanted to expand and partner up with Sylvia James but the Gray's had a strict policy about what ingredients were and were not allowed in the perfumes she created. Her big mistake was coming to the party in which they would meet wearing a perfume that had ingredients from an animal. Actually, it was a very big no- no. Furious with them for breaking their word, Sylvia hurled insults at them as well as her assistant Moira.

Having had enough, Moira left with Artemis when he offered. Of course, his pick-up wasn't a typical one. Instead of asking he basically commanded and like an animal not a human. He was domineering, possessive, irritating as hell and made her feel like purring like a kitten.

Artemis Gray wasn't like any other man. He was different from the top of head with the streak of silver hair to his gorgeous face to the body Adonis himself would beg for to his feet -- classy yet elegant. Oh no, Artemis wasn't your garden variety man. Instead, he was a werewolf in every sense of the word. He howls at the moon, especially when Moira Archer is in the room. He was instantly attracted to her from the get go which was why it was such a big surprise since he hadn't been attracted to any woman since his wife had died previously.

He wanted her and that was that. He was determined to have her at any cost. Sylvia James wasn't done with either of them. She was vindictive and pissed so there would be hell to pay.

PERFUMED HEAT was hot, hot, hot! The steam rolled from the sheets when they were together. Artemis was dominating yet caring. Moira was independent yet submissive. The two together made bedroom magic. A great start to a steamy new series. May the next sizzle as well, Ms. Mays!

Since the death of his mate, the desire for another to take her place lay dormant in Artemis Gray's soul. No female could ever take her place, and he was content with his life as it was. Then, Moira Archer, a human woman, entered his life. Her rich, earthy scent combined with the perfume she wore enticing all of his senses.

Like a fist in his abdomen, desire shot through him. The werewolf in his soul awoke and howled in triumph. Mine!
