    Sam Capra is living the life of his dreams. He's a brilliant young CIA agent, stationed in London. His wife Lucy is seven months pregnant with their first child. They have a wonderful home, and are deeply in love. They have everything they could hope for... until they lose it all in one horrifying moment.

    Any additional comments?

    Our reader pro-noun-ces ev-er-y syl-la-ble. De-lib-er-ate-ly. Abbott's story starts explosively with a beautifully described parkour run that seems to promise that our hero will use this skill to save himself or thwart the enemy. I was with Sam Capra thru the bomb and his subsequent imprisonment (not really spoilers). Then the story developed holes large enough to drive a Hummer through. The combination of increasingly implausible plot developments and Collins's devastating reading style made me jettison before I reached the end of the first download.

    Generations of werewolves have been secretly residing in a secluded valley a stones throw from Grundy, Alaska. So when a snooping Outsider comes to Grundy to investigate rumors of lycanthropic shenanigans in the area, the valleys pack alpha, Maggie Graham, resolves to chase him away, even if doing so takes a quick bite on the butt. What a pity that researcher Nick Thatcher turns out to be so drool-worthy, and that his kisses make Maggie want to sit up and beg.

    Story

    If you read Harper's first werewolf book and want to try a second, consider waiting a bit before diving into this one, as the 'voice'--figuratively and literally--of hero Maggie sounds exactly like that of Mo, our hero of How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf. In that book, Maggie was werewolf Cooper's bitter younger sister, and while most of her issues were resolved there, here she is such a kinder, gentler version of Maggie as to be unrecognizable. For me, the plot turns were not very well done or rewarding, and the character development was minimal. Though "all comparisons are odious" (Cervantes, Don Quixote), if you like supernatural romance, Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse books are still, for me, far more rewarding.

    Even in Grundy, Alaska, its unusual to find a naked guy with a bear trap clamped to his ankle on your porch. But when said guy turns into a wolf, recent southern transplant Mo Wenstein has no difficulty identifying the problem.

    Story

    As the book cover (which I failed to notice!) suggests, this novel is more romance than 'supe.' The Alaskan setting w/a southern gal hero is different. Overall, it was fun, mostly b/c of Molly Harper's gift for repartee and self-deprecating humor. The main characters are down to earth and kind, with feisty edges. Reader Amanda Ronconi is fine as our gal Mo. But she has only one male voice, and it's just a raspy gal voice.

    There were several redeeming scenes (no spoilers), and if you are a mainstream romance lover, you will probably enjoy the book. Though Harper is no Charlaine Harris, this is my first experience with her writing, and I'll probably give her another read.

    Overall

    This is a gorgeous and generous book, highway robbery at the sale price of 5.95. It is a lush and complicated tale, with the various threads of this several-generational story drawn together into a near-perfect tapestry.
