Overview

Talk about a bad-hair day!

Sophie Garou is a master at taming her inner beast, which comes in handy since she’s a werewolf. With a big promotion at work and a supersexy boyfriend, Heath (whom she recently spotted leaving a jewelry store with a beguiling ring box), she’s one happy girl.

But when Heath starts spending long nights at the office with his new associate–a dead-ringer for Career Day Barbie–Sophie smells trouble. And when her professional relationship with her big new client–who also happens to be Texas’s brilliantly blue-eyed most eligible bachelor–begins to sizzle, she wonders if her animal instincts are leading her in the wrong direction. Just when it seems that things can’t get any more complicated, they do. The Houston werewolf pack has sniffed Sophie out, and their message is chillingly clear: you’re either with us or against us. And unless she can prove that she’s with them, the next full moon may just be her last.

    Werewolves and Demons

    This reader awaited for this novel sequel with great anticipation, however, it was a bit disappointing in the area of romance and just didn't have the steel-gripping appeal of the first novel. In this sequel with find our heroine engrossed between two would-be lovers; one a dashing Alpha werewolf, the other a manipulating demon prince. Although the injection of the demon aspect to this novel did lift the thrill-appeal, and keep you on the edge of your seat to find out just how our heroine would deal with her demon-suitor, this reader, however, would have preferred if the author had stuck to the original story line and simply kept the plot in the, shall we say, 'were' family. Sometimes when an author places too much of a plot twist in a story line it distracts from the first originality of the first novel, and the sequel lands flat; so is the case here, and though I do recommend this as a good read, it could have been so much better.

    Loving It

    First off it is a great read. Quick and easy, I was done in two days (and that is inbetween school full time and kids). It was filled with passion and humor and I love the characters. Karen does great job making the characters have a real feel to them and I love that. I have to say that Mark was an unexpected twist, a fun one, but unexpected never the less. I think Sophie is right in leaving Heath if she is not comfortable telling him her secret. Lindsay knows, so if you can tell your best friend but not your lover, something is wrong. I think that she needs to ditch Mark and go with Tom, yummy. I think that Sally her assistant, needs to go, that woman cause huge conflict, but her outfits make me laugh. And Miranda? there is something fishy about that girl. I don't think she is human, but who knows. I can't wait to read the next instalment of this sereies, they are wonerful books, and if you like paranormal you will like these.

    I love shape shifters...anything and everything about them. If you feel the same then this is a book you will enjoy reading. It has it's own spin on the politics of being a shifter and all the headaches that go with it.

    The second Garou Texas werewolf tale is a terrific follow-up to a strong opener

    After her recent escapades with weres and proving her mom a witch was not a killer (see HOWLING THE MOON) Austin werewolf Sophie Garou plans on keeping a low profile like she used to have before her recent problems. She especially prays the powerful Houston pack ignores her solo existence in the midst of them.<BR/><BR/>Instead, the pack leadership demands Sophie come to them or else. She has no choice if she wants things to remain positive with her boyfriend Heath and at her accounting firm Withers and Young where she made partner. The Houston pack is outraged by her living inside their territory as strays are normally unacceptable, but what makes her worse in their lupine eyes is that the half-breed has been inside their turf under the werewolf radar screen for a few decades. To make amends and calm their fears of a rogue, she agrees to spy on the San Antonio pack, but quickly realizes she is not a good undercover agent and her new accounting client Southeast Airlines CEO Mark Sydney seems to be sniffing around her an awful lot making her wonder if he is ON THE PROWL with her his target.<BR/><BR/>The second Garou Texas werewolf tale is a terrific follow-up to a strong opener due to the heroine¿s actions and reactions as she no longer can hide under the radar scope. Sophie cannot understand how her world has crumbled so fast. However she is strong perhaps because she is the offspring of a witch and a werewolf; so faces her issues with courage albeit reluctant bravery as she would rather hide. Fans will appreciate her howling adventures that give biting meaning to the modern day wild west.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner
