"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, 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 again!

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 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 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 suit!

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 rules.

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!

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?
