Loupe always dreamed of getting married. She yearned for a caring husband who would take her away from her servant-like existence at home with her stepmother and two stepsisters, a man who would love her forever. Those dreams ended the day she was bitten by a werewolf. Now she’s a mindless beast on the night of the full moon—a condition that forever prevents her from sharing a marriage bed. Not even the attentions of a handsome and endearingly strong prince can convince her that the life she wants is still possible. Etienne is a prince in need of a werewolf. A werewolf himself from birth, Etienne and his family have protected their kingdom with tooth and claw—literally—for thousands of years. Unfortunately, the spell of a well-meaning witch is slowly turning him human. Only the bite of a cursed werewolf, one who was not born with the beast inside, can save him from becoming human. He has no time for anything that will not lead him to a cure for the cure. Not even the beautiful maiden whose gentle nature soothes his soul can take his mind from his goal.Love cares little for the best laid plans or the impossible. A grand ball. The stroke of twelve. A magic “slipper.” All kinds of things can happen when you don’t leave the ball…Before Midnight.

Heroine is a meek Mary Sue. She, a servant/middle class girl living in a village, is so tender-hearted that she cares for wolf pups. Which of course moves the heart of the prince and also the rest of the royal family - them all being werewolves. This is quite silly and the attraction between the...
Cute retelling of Cinderella with werewolves. The beginning is interesting because it tells a story I didn't quite get at first, but by the epilogue figure out that it's setting things up for an overall story. If that made any sense, congratulations! :P Loupe was tame but was super cute when she was...
