"Unforgettable characters!!"

Annette needs to find out what happened to her sister before she can lead a normal life. When she finds an amulet at an ancient druid circle, she gains the ability to summon Aragon. Aragon is half man, half wolf. Before he quit, he was the leader of his unit of shadow men to protect humanity. Aragon does not take too kindly to a mortal woman interrupting his quest for vengeance against one of the fallen. His need to protect her rivals the need to strike down the one who he feels is responsible for so much pain and suffering.

Aragon gives new definition to the term tortured hero. He takes upon his shoulders all the guilt in the world and asks for more. On more than one occasion he couldn't see the truth in front of him, but by the end he realized that he was not responsible for all life's woes. Annette has spunk, though she doesn't always think before she acts, she's not afraid to take risks. The balance the two create was beautiful. As they fought against the passion they shared, they learned how to better themselves for each other.

The second book in the Shadowmen series outshined the first. Aragon captured my heart through his struggles. I cheered for him, wanted to yell at him when he was wrong, and to hold his hand when he accepted his mistakes for what they were. The ability to pick up where the first book left off and run with it is a rare talent and Jennifer St. Giles nailed it. I found this book to be an exceptional read, I didn't want to put it down. The Lure of the Wolf is a special book because the characters have a way of warming the readers' heart. Not only are they well rounded, but also unforgettable.

Mighty warriors sworn to protect humanity, the shape-shifters known as The Shadowmen move between two worlds. Now their dark leader has exiled himself from the spirit world, opening the door to the forces of chaos...and to the power of love.

Half wolf, half man, Aragon has abandoned his brethren to repay a debt of honor; he is sworn to kill a rogue Blood Hunter, though exacting revenge will doom him to a ghostly existence trapped between two worlds. But when a mortal woman unexpectedly calls him to her side, the heat of her soft flesh arouses a hunger in him that threatens to complicate his mission.

Dr. Annette Batista, a dedicated healer, is determined to find her missing sister. With the amulet found at the site of her sister's disappearance, she unwittingly summons a shadowy warrior. She wonders if she can trust this powerful male named Aragon, who claims he can vanquish her sister's captor -- the very monster he's vowed to destroy. Or is Annette blinded by her shocking passion for the most alluring, mysterious man she's ever seen?
