Synopses & Reviews
Some instincts are too powerful to deny.
In the past year, veterinarian Abra Barrow has gone through some major changes: Shes left Manhattan for the deceptively quiet small town of Northside, ditched her cheating husband, and discovered that he has infected her with the rare werewolf virus. Now Abra is finally beginning to feel as if she has her life under control-except when the moon is full.
But then, all of a sudden, Abra starts losing her temper-and her inhibitions-even when the sun is shining. Her new man, shape-shifting wildlife expert Red Mallin, seems to know more about her condition than hes letting on, but hes a little preoccupied with strange creatures that have been crossing the dimensional border.
With her hormones in overdrive, Abra finds herself releasing the beast in all the men around her. As life in Northside becomes increasingly more peculiar-and more perilous-she must decide whom she can trust . . . when shes not even sure she can trust herself.
In this sequel to "The Better to Hold You," Abra Barrow leaves her husband, who had infected her with the rare werewolf virus, for a new life in a small town. When she starts losing her temper and inhibitions, even in daylight, Abra finds herself releasing the beast in all the men around her. Original.
