Overview

First Time in Paperback for the Sequel to Draw One in the Dark.
Romantic Adventure by a New Star of Urban Fantasy.

There are those living secretly among us who have the power to change their physical form from that of a human to an animal, even animals thought to be mythical, such as dragons. Throughout out the ages, these shape shifters have come together in a loose organization to protect themselves from humans—and other shape shifters. According to their code, killing another shifter is a crime, no matter if the shifter was slaughtering humans.

Kyrie Smith, a young panther shifter, must decide where she will stand: with her group or with humanity at large. And she’ll have to do it while both older shifters and her boyfriend Tom Ormson—a dragon shifter—push her from quandary to quandary and police detective Rafiel Thrall—who happens to be a lion shifter—demands her help in solving mysterious murders that he suspects have been committed by a shifter. But when Tom begins getting telepathic warnings from the Great Sky Dragon that his life is in danger, the same dragon who recently almost killed him, he and Kyrie realize that much more is involved than a homicidal shape shifter.

Someone—or something—has been killing shifters in large numbers, and the most ancient and powerful of shifters are converging on the city to find the killer. And anyone, human or shifter, who gets in their way will be eliminated without mercy. . .

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Kyrie Smith, a panther shifter who works as a human at an all-night diner that caters to the population of shapeshifters existing beneath the radar of human society, becomes involved in a threat to all shifters when she learns that her boyfriend, a dragon shifter, is in danger from a group known as the Ancient Ones. In addition, lion shifter and police detective Rafiel Thrall needs her help in discovering who is murdering the city's shifters, and Kyrie finds herself torn between her loyalties to shifters or to the humans, who have few defenses in the crossfire of a shapeshifter war. Adept at both Elizabethan fantasy (Ill Met by Moonlight) and urban storytelling as this sequel to Draw One in the Dark demonstrates, Hoyt brings depth and humor to her characters. Her latest romantic fantasy outing belongs in most libraries.

    highly recommended

    This book is a fun read. A sequel to "Draw One In the Dark," itself a very good story, "Gentleman Takes A Chance" picks up right where the original left off. Kyrie and Tom are now co-owners of The George Diner, and have to balance their working lives, their needs as shifters, and their need to protect themselves from ancient enemies. As well as ancient friends who are just as bad, if not worse, than the enemies. All of this while keeping the Diner going on three shifts and also solving a murder mystery. Add in an estranged father, a Lion shape-shifting police officer and a couple of other surprises, and it is amazing how many plot elements Sarah Hoyt can keep running throughout the story.

    Take a chance on "Gentleman Takes A Chance," you won't be sorry!
