    "Howl" is a paranormal romance novel set in a contempo

    "Howl" is a paranormal romance novel set in a contemporary Northern California setting. At fifty-one pages, this novella is a fast, entertaining read. It is ideal for the reader looking for something to fill up a few free hours. Werewolves are far and away my favorite shifter, and Mariposa Cruz weaves a wolfy tale full of intrigue, action, and suspense.

    Kate Owens is a dedicated single mom who must deal with her sleazy ex-husband and the challenges of catty co-workers. A month before the story begins, she suffered a brutal attack by a wild animal that almost ended her life. Her savior, the handsome Jack Walker, also happens to be a lawyer at her place of work. As the story begins, the hero and heroine are already friends and share good charisma.

    Kate's circumstances are pretty grim. Her insolvent finances result in constant instability for her little family. She skips meals in order to keep her child fed. Unfortunately, Kate's wolf takes matters into her own paws and sneaks out at night to eat neighboring pets and stray cats. Quite understandably, the heroine worries that she's going nuts, not having come to the realization yet that she was bitten by a werewolf. Her predicament falls in the vein of dark humor, leaving the reader both cringing and yet grimly amused.

    Jack is already a werewolf with an attack story of his own, and an enemy to go along with it. He explains Kate's true nature to her and introduces her to his pack. The scenes portraying the shift to wolves and time spent in canine form add an interesting element to the story, lending well to the primal theme. Likewise, love scenes are sensual and bring a wonderful aspect to Jack and Kate's romance.

    Supporting characters are three dimensional. The author spends a lot of time developing the personalities of the pack, maybe too much for such a short story. I'm not opposed to complex supporting cast but it came at the cost of word count that could have been invested in creating a more compelling bond between the hero and heroine.I wanted to see more of the heroine's daughter and know about her relationship with Jack.

    The story ended too soon and left many things unresolved. I had questions and felt this read more like the first half of a full length novel than a novella. I hope the author accepts it as a compliment because I really wanted to read more of her story and was disappointed when it ended so soon.

    This is a great quick and easy read for readers looking for an intriguing paranormal romance.

    I received an ARC of the novel in exchange for an honest review.
