Her ability to shape-shift into a wolf. On the run now from the dangerous mobster who destroyed her special gift, Jewel faces even deadlier stakes. For she will die if she doesn’t change into a wolf soon. Arriving in west Texas, Jewel strives to complete her transformation. But as she lies naked in a grassy area and the animal in her is crying out for release, a handsome stranger intrudes. Brooding Colton Reynolds appears to be a man who knows a good deal about secrets…and the power of keeping them to himself. A man equally unable to trust. As her urge to shift awakens burning carnal desires, Jewel must put everything on the line. For if she gives her body to Colton, can she truly free her soul?

My Take:

Evey once in awhile I love to sit down with a good Nocturne book to break up all the long novels that I read. Every single one that I have read has given me a short break filled with paranormal suspense and romance that Harlequin is famous for. This book did just that. Even though there wasn’t much, ahem, sex in the book, I still could feel the romance in the characters and in the way that Karen Whiddon wrote the book. It had suspense, romance, a few short sex scenes, and had me devouring this book in about an hour. Nocturne books always refresh my mind and get me back on the reading track again.

In this book, Jewel, a shifter, has divorced her ex husband who is also a shifter. She is on the run from him and ends up in a small town trying to restart her life. She is also not able to shift into wolf form due to something that her ex has done to her. She can’t figure out what though. She meets a local reporter named Colton and they soon fall in love even though neither one wants to admit it. Together they try to find a way to out smart her ex, while the whole time she keeps her shifter secret from Colton.

I know same old stuff just a different book right? NO! I love my Nocturnes and I love how Karen wrote it. For once the paranormal person was the girl, not the male! I think I will have to scrounge around for some more of her books to read.

Outstanding Book! A definite favorite!

    I’ve never read any of these but I see you are reading the Vampire Academy. That is on my list and I am curious what you think about it.
    I loved Twilight (i know i’m not the only one) and i wanted to read other vampire-ish young adult.
