eBook ISBN: 978-1419927744
Length:  Novella/Quickie

Harem outfit and a flogger? Sounds like a party. That’s why Jenny chose them as the key ingredients in her plan of seduction. For two years she has worked for Damianos Alexander, but tonight at the costume party she’s determined to become more than his secretary. Tonight, she’ll take that sexy male animal home—to her bed.

Damianos always gets what he wants, and he wants Jenny. She’s half naked, her body undulating in the movements of an ancient dance. Tempting every man in the room, including him. Too bad she doesn’t realize she’s tempting a wolf. Once she unleashes his feral side, there is no turning back.

My Review: 

This is another quickie read and just hit the spot.  For a short novella, the pace was fast but the writer did a good job of hitting all of the relationship elements.

Jenny and Damianos have worked together for 2 years.  They have both been attracted to each other during this period of time but neither one has done anything about their feelings of attraction so Jenny decides to take matters into her own hands and decides to make her move.  She realized that as long as she worked for Damianos or Damon, as everyone called him, that they would never be able to have a relationship, so she resigned her position on the day of a company party- she already had another job position secured.  Jenny is very competent at her job, secure in her own physical appearance and is a go getter. 

Damianos is a physically attractive man but he's also so much more, he's also a lycan prince and he has decided that he is going to take Jenny up on her offer.  He knows that once he claims her it's forever and that she will become his mate.  He knows she's fully human but he's willing to take a chance on exposing who and what he is to secure his happiness, he is a little worried about how she will react to his being lycan

The sex in this novella is very hot, the author handled it very well.  There is anal sex involved so if that is a hot button for you, beware that it is a small part.  The emotional aspects of their relationship are also handled very well in that these two people have known each other for some time and have a base that has already been established and which is further developed in the story.

I won't give away spoilers but there is a very satisfactory ending and I am certainly going to look at other works by this author.  The writing was good and the dialogue was smart.

My Rating:  4.5 out of 5 Stars
