"Terrific werewolf romance"
Skyler Kingston practices veterinary medicine at the
foothills of the Cascade Mountains in Washington State.
She also suffers from a family curse that Norda the
Norwegian witch in 1027 bestowed on her kin; she like
those before her transforms from a human into a wolf when
the full moon rises. Skyler fears the other segment of the
curse; in four months when she turns thirty she joins her
beloved brother Damien and the Others as she will become
Sky the white wolf with no reverting back to her human
This month Skyler is late from her work and is caught
outside during the conversion. A hunter wounds her
thinking she is one of wolves killing local livestock.
When a car hits Bubba the Pomeranian of six year old
Cassandra, Skyler insures the tiny furrball is okay while
the owner's father Dr. Nathaniel Brady disrespects her.
She soon learns that his reaction is out of fear for his
daughter dying from a blood ailment. As Skyler and Nathan
become acquainted he figures out her secret, but instead
of being appalled with her as she expects he dreads the
end of their loving relationship unless they find the cure.
This is a terrific werewolf romance starring two wonderful
protagonists who struggle with the shapeshifting curse,
his daughter's illness and cures for both as well as the
impact of any solutions on their loved ones. The story
line is character driven by obviously the lead couple, but
enhanced by support cast like Cassandra and Damien. Turing
the werewolf legend upside down, sub-genre fans will hail
TREACHEROUS LOVE as a splendid entry whose love between
the prime players is symbolized by of all things a
