SOMETIMES WHAT YOU COVET IS IMPOSSIBLE TO KEEP. For werewolf Natalya Stravinsky, the supernatural is nothing extraordinary. What does seem strange is that she's stuck in her hometown of South Toms River, New Jersey, the outcast of her pack, selling antiques to finicky magical creatures. Restless and recovering from her split with gorgeous ex-boyfriend, Thorn, Nat finds comfort in an unusual place: her obsessively collected stash of holiday trinkets. But complications pile up faster than her ornaments when Thorn returns home--and the two discover that the spark between them remains intense. Before Nat can sort out their relationship, she must face a more immediate and dangerous problem. Her pack is under attack from the savage Long Island werewolves--and Nat is their first target in a turf war. Toss in a handsome wizard vying for her affection, a therapy group for the anxious and enchanted, and the South Toms River pack leader ready to throw her to the wolves, and it's enough to give anybody a panic attack. With the stakes as high as the full moon, Nat must summon all of her strength to save her pack and, ultimately, herself.

Interesting premise, strong characters and an excellent buildup of tension and conflict. I enjoyed how author Shawntelle Madison focused on developing the heroine and getting her to a place where she had a more balanced dynamic with the hero. My only nitpick, and its a small one, is that I was expec...
Had potential, didn't live up to it and Nat was very much a Mary Sue. A jerky one at that.
I have to admit... it was slow going at first. Natalya is a hard character to sympathize with initially- at least for me. OCD female, Russian werewolf and hoarder of beautiful Christmas ornaments. It's much to take in and grow fond of. But somehow, by the end (despite my doubts) I eagerly read a...
Mmmmmmm what to say about to book, it's tough ........ Okay then maybe true blood on crack, with less passion and blood and funnily no vampires!Well I love a paranormal read I really do but this was total paranormal overkill, we have werewolves, wizards, goblins, tree nymphs, shifters, a muse, nec...
