"Very original werewolf Romance!"
Tony is waiting in Nick's Tavern for his client to show up.
Tony and Nick are both part of the "family" and go way
back. This is one of the few places Tony feels comfortable.
See, Tony has a special job within the "family". For some
reason, he became an assassin, and a good one.
Unfortunately, one of his "jobs" didn't go as planned and
the victim turned around and killed him. Only he didn't
die, he woke up the next morning as a werewolf.
So he's sitting in his favorite booth and watching the
door. Finally, he spots her. It's kind of hard not to,
considering the get up she's wearing, right down to the
dark glasses. It turns out this client wants Tony to kill
her! Of course, Tony takes her wig off once he recognizes
her name. Knowing she recently won a high dollar lottery
and is in the public eye, Tony tells her she will have to
wait at least a year due to the publicity. Surprising
himself, Tony invites her to his hotel room and offers to
listen to her for a fee. Not fully understanding why he did
this, (he's never taken anyone to his hide out during the
full moon) Tony realizes there's just something about her
he wants to know better.
Suzie "Sue" Quentin just can't take it anymore. Her family
has finally used her up and she just wants to end the pain.
Everyone in her family has taken advantage of her. Of
course, since she won the lottery, it's gotten even worse.
Now she's even got her mother living with her! And faking
accidents to keep Sue by her side. Somewhat disappointed at
the assassin's telling her he won't be able to "do" her for
at least year, she decides to take him up on his offer to
talk. So she goes to his hotel room, and realizes Tony is a
werewolf! Surprisingly, he doesn't hurt her, but somehow,
the two of them have a weird connection. They can sense
each other. Sue can actually see Tony running as a wolf,
she can smell the same things he does!
Will the two of them have a chance at a relationship? Will
Tony kill Sue? Will they fall in love? Will Tony ever learn
about his special werewolf abilities?
HUNTER'S MOON is a highly original werewolf story. C.J.
Adams and Cathy Clamp have given us a very realistic look
into the life of a hired killer, and not just any paid
assassin, but a werewolf. The characters are all very
realistic, from the main characters of confident, smart
Tony and insecure Sue, to the secondary characters as well.
I really loved the way Sue's percocet popping, vodka
drinking, scheming mother was portrayed and she busted
herself. If you enjoy werewolf stories, with a totally
unique perspective look at the origination of the
shapeshifter society, you don't want to miss this one!

HER ONLY OPTION IS DEATH
Sue Quentin has reached the end of her rope-she's desperate, and there's only one way out. Her plan doesn't include falling for Tony, the mysterious hit man she hires. He listens when she speaks and somehow convinces her that maybe her problems aren't entirely insurmountable. He even thinks her little potbelly is sexy. So he's a werewolf--everyone has flaws!
Sue enjoys being coddled by Tony, and, for his part, Tony likes the way Sue moans when he touches her. She begins to think she and Tony might have a shot at a future together, despite his unorthodox profession . . . and even though she doesn't know his real name.
But when Tony's enemies-not all of whom are fully human-decide Sue makes a perfect target, will Tony risk letting his darker side out during the day to save her?
