The Undeniable Appeal of a Werewolf
by Kristin Miller

In folklore, a werewolf is simply an adult who can transform into a wolf. The condition usually occurs after being cursed, or being bitten or scratched by another werewolf. They’re unnaturally strong creatures and freakishly fast, shifting into wolf form at the full moon.

In modern literature and movies, lycans (coming from the word “lycanthropy”: the power to turn into a wolf) are larger than the average human, but usually walk on two legs rather than four. They are repelled by wolfsbane and can be killed by silver bullets or blades. (Some of my favorite werewolf movies play off of these traits!)

In paranormal romance novels, authors take werewolves a step further. Werewolves are often territorial and protective over their women. A werewolf would fight to the death for his woman, and send the strength of his pack after her if she were taken from him. Werewolves are dominating, sexy, and witty with a keen intellect. They’re not hairy and grotesque (although I guess they could be), but Alpha to the extreme, fighting for what they believe in. Have I mentioned their raw sexuality? Ahem.

Logan Black, hitman and bodyguard-for-hire for the Seattle Wolf Pack, is one such hero. He and the other werewolves in the Seattle Wolf Pack can shift at whim, and are not limited by the phases of the moon. Logan leads a solitary life and moves from place to place depending on where his pack needs him most. Because of the roguish lifestyle he leads (and the past that still haunts him), he has no desire to bond with a woman. Keep things light, is his motto. The last thing he expects is to find his fated soul mate—his Luminary—in his latest assignment. Veronica Vale doesn’t appear to be his match at first (she’s a wedding planner and has always wanted a home, husband and family herself), but it doesn’t take long for their chemistry to heat up. She’s not a werewolf, but knows they exist and despises them after one bit her sister, changing their lives forever. Veronica has no problem getting close to Logan when she thinks he’s a regular, run-of-the-mill bodyguard. But when she finds out that he’s a werewolf, she must fight her attraction to him with everything she has.

Why werewolves? Because other paranormal heroes can be protective and sexy, but none of them naturally embody the traits of a wolf. Strength is in their bones. Dominance is what they crave. And finding their one and only perfectly fated match is what they wait their entire lives for. Who could deny the appeal of a man like that?

Gone with the Wolf by Kristin Miller

Book #2 in the Seattle Wolf Pack series 

To have and to howl…

Logan Black, former Marine and bodyguard for the Seattle Wolf Pack, hates weddings and has no plan to walk the path to matrimonial misery. But when he’s hired to protect a hot-to-trot wedding planner with a werewolf stalker, he’s forced to put his feelings aside. Not such an easy task when the damsel can turn him on with a single smoldering glance.

Wedding planner Veronica Vale knows werewolves exist, but hates them. One bit her sister, changing their lives forever. When a sexy Marine shows his gorgeous face at one of her wedding appointments, Veronica finds it hard to focus on the task at hand.

The chemistry drawing Logan and Veronica together seems fated, but with Logan’s playboy attitude, Veronica’s hatred for werewolves, and a stalker lurking in the shadows, these two need more than passion to keep them together.
