Discovering an unconscious man who may be vampire, in the neighbor’s yard leads werewolf Tawny Howls down a love path that’s not going to make her father happy. She senses this man is different, but that doesn’t stop her attraction. Werewolves and vampires are traditional enemies, and it doesn’t help when he remembers nothing about his prior life.

Awakening to find a beautiful woman hovering over him, he remembers nothing of his past life. When Tawny decides to call him David, he’s fine with the name and the attention he receives from his nurse. But why does the scent of the prey she hunts excite him more than the food she cooks?

Can the strong attraction between a shifter and a vampire overcome years of distrust for each other’s species? Will the discovery of his true identity ensnare them in a battle that endangers their lives, in an effort to save mankind from Demon rule?



I really enjoyed this romance about Tawny Howls, a werewolf and her unexpected love, David, a vampire. I liked how differences were overcome easily between species and the instant connection between Tawny and David was sweet. The love scenes were well written with just enough details to make it hot, but leaving out enough to leave the imagination room to takeover!! Very nice!

At the beginning we read how Tawny finds David unconscious. When he does wake he has no memory of being a vampire and the two have to find out who he is. The story takes off when Tawny and David have to join with their friends to battle evil demons who want to take over the world and rule. The author introduces a lot characters in the first chapter and for me it was a bit confusing just trying to sort out who was who and finally who the main characters were going to be. Once I could see where each person fit in, I couldn't put it down. I loved how the writer made David a good guy, literally, and it was nice to see how the author kept the story flowing all the way to the end. I did feel like I was missing something during certain chapters though. For example, while I was reading a scene at the beginning about Bobby, one of the werewolves, and a witch, I didn't understand where the characters fit in until a couple of pages later when the back story was told. The story just seemed to jump from one major couple to a completely new couple in the span of a page. I really thought for a minute that Bobby and David were going to be the couple and Tawny was going to be a third wheel.

Overall, a good short story to read, just remember that you will meet a lot of people quickly and the first people you read about are not major players in the reading. I would still recommend this one for a quick read when you've got time between books!
