"Wonderful story of werewolves and prophecy!"
Eventually, Cassie gave into Heather's pleading and decided
to join her friend and boyfriend on this camping trip.
After all, what better way to unwind after a long week than
in Mother Nature's bosom? Not that Cassie's feeling very
relaxed right now. Putting her tent up will be the death of
her yet. Not quite ready to accept Graham's help in getting
it up, she sends Graham and Heather on their way to the
restrooms. Of course, if Cassie were to come across someone
tall, dark and handsome this weekend, she really wouldn't
complain, especially since she knows what will be taking
place in Heather and Graham's tent. Finally, Cassie's now
to the point of getting the tent up. This is when she
realizes she really could use the help of another person.
Well, she's alone now, so she decides to try it anyway.
Just as the tent is ready to fall, and not for the first
time, Cassie sees a man's hand grabbing for it. Turns out
this may just be Cassie's tall, dark and handsome for the
weekend. So they arrange to go for a hike the next day.
Cassie has a wonderful time on the hike and they head back
to the campsite. Turns out Cray is very familiar with this
area and has warned Cassie about mountain lions and bears
in the area. Graham and Heather start fighting as soon as
Cassie returns. When Heather stomps off into their tent,
Graham initiates a conversation about werewolves. In
Cassie's profession as a psychologist, she has studied the
phenomenon and doesn't truly believe it exists, but she
still feels a bit unsettled and when the fighting between
Graham and Heather continues, Cassie grabs Heather and off
they go to the showers together. As they leave the showers
to head back to their campsite, they hear a low growl and
see frightening eyes looking at them.
Are Cassie and Heather being attacked by a mountain lion?
Or is it something worse? Why was Graham going on about
werewolves to Cassie? And just how does Cray fit into all
LYCAN LORE is a perfect story for Halloween. Shannon Leigh
gives us a chilling look into the world of things that go
bump in the night. We have all the necessary ingredients: a
beautiful damsel in distress; out in the middle of the
woods, and a supernatural creature or two. All of which add
up to a wonderful fright. This is the type of story you
don't want to read when you're alone. So leave the lights
on and cuddle under a nice warm blanket and read this
story. You won't be sorry you did.

Being the tag-along on a camping trip with Heather and Graham is not what Cassandra has in mind for her long weekend. When a tall, dark stranger with staggering green eyes shows up to lend a hand with her tent assembly from Hell, however, she has to rethink her predicament. Despite the mixture of excitement and apprehension he incites with his soul-startling stare, the possibility that she’s just found her brawny Tarzan in the depths of Redwood National Park suddenly doesn’t seem so absurd.
Cray feels an equally potent draw to the fiery redhead with the soft hazel eyes, attractive features, and tempting shape. Despite his resolve, she provokes a primordial calling he’s long sought to contain. He wants this female, he can’t deny, but he knows giving in to such unabashed urges can lead to disaster, and he refuses to sentence this woman to his own horrid fate.
But just as powerful as Cray’s attraction is his unexpected surge of protectiveness. There’s something about Cassandra’s male friend that needles his suspicion. Graham invokes Cray’s predatory sense of dominance, and that doesn’t bode well. If his instincts are correct, Cray knows Graham is more than he appears and Cassandra’s life is in danger...~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
