"A howling great read"
I love something that is fresh and original. Unfortunately,
sometimes readers are slow to shift gears and enjoy the
sheer brilliance and fun, simply because it's different. It
breaks the rules of writing romance. Well, I am here to
say, break those rules baby when you can deliver something
totally dazzling. And that is what Cathy Clamp and C.T.
Adams do with Hunter's Moon.
An ex-Mafia hitman, Tony Giodone was turned into a werewolf
by a mystery lady. She did not take the time to give him
the FAQs of wolfdom, and face it, watching Lon Chaney films
just does not fill the gaps. So Tony Giodone is still
trying to get his feet...um, paws...under him. It written
from Tony's first person POV (point of view), and shame on
you Clamp and Adam for daring to break the rules, how dare
you be so innovative, so refreshing! Just hurry and do it
The sexy romance plays ala Mike Hammer. Tony meets his new
client, one Suzi Quentin. She wanted someone offed. Well,
this is child's play to our boy...um...wolf...Tony. Only
she knocks him for a loop when she tells him the name of
the person she wants killed - herself! Poor Suzie is really
stuck with the family from Hell and being dead is better
than living with them one minute more. Only problem is Tony
the pony...um...wolf...catches Suzi's scent. Wolves in the
wild mate for life and Tony suddenly finds his mind on the
same track. He has been hit with the near crippling need to
mate with Suzi - for life!
Tony is being dawn into a dark coven with secrets, secrets
that give him the key to his new lifestyle. So he must
battle this menacing evil, claim Suzi for his life mate,
and learn what to do about those pesky dog hairs on his
Both men and women should enjoy this witty, action-paced
romance. I can hardly wait for the next installment on
Tony's life. This is another super novel coming from TOR
where they are willing to take chances and ignore the
Kudos to the two writers and their publisher for ignoring
stick in the mud rules and going for the wild ride. Here's
too more in the series!
