Advertising agent, Tammy Sinclair, is sent to a small mountain town to gain the advertising account for a fast growing company that makes a cure for erection dysfunction. A heavy rain washing out the road traps her at the local gas station with the sexy owner, Blake, and roommate, Ken, who live beneath the store.
A quickly developing relationship is knocked off course when a werewolf molests Tammy while asleep. When new lover, Blake, covers up for the werewolf, it makes her suspicious. When everyone else backs him on the cover-up, she fears she is in trouble.
Belita Renn has written a delightful tale of lust, love and surprises. Tammy starts off as the determined young businesswoman, trying to prove herself. When she is stuck on the mountain, she decides to make the best of the situation. When Blake comes on to her, she tries to be open minded and fair, hoping he isn’t involved with Ken as he is trying to bed her. I loved that Blake made sure Tammy knew he was interested, and the hot scene in the bath was marvelous. The part where Tammy was awakened by the attentions of a werewolf to her, shall we say, private parts, was actually quite funny.
Tammy is stunned to learn of the existence of werewolves, and moreso when she realizes Blake and Ken are both wolves as well. In fact, she eventually comes to realize the midnight intruder was Ken.
This is an interesting world that Ms Renn has created, and I hope she will bring us back to visit, to learn more about the rest of Blake’s extended family. Do Tammy and Blake settle their differences and get their happy ever after? Of course, and Tammy lands the account as well as the hero. I recommend this for shifter lovers who like hot and steamy sexy werewolves, but don’t read it while riding on mountain roads in the rain.
