When her pack leader issues a mating contract between herself and hotshot werewolf Luke Roman, Claire knows there must be some mistake. She doesn't know Luke very well, but she can't imagine two less compatible people being thrown together. Luke has loved Claire for years, and he isn't about to let her undo what he's worked so hard to put into effect. When she refuses to discuss the pact with him, even when he follows her home, Luke finds a silk scarf on her dresser and decides to try other, more creative ways of getting Claire's undivided attention.
So far, this series has been hit-and-miss for me. I guess I was ‘in the mood’ last night, the right mood for a short, quick, sexy, sweet little werewolf romance.
Though it’s tough jamming everything you want to say into a short story, Ms. Zane succeeded with this one. The reader, along with the heroine, gets to see the lengths Luke was willing to go to get her, we see the deep feelings he had for her, the exultation he feels when they finally…you know. :D
And the reader also gets the opportunity to shake his/her head at Claire’s (the heroine) blindness as far as Luke’s true intentions have been for the past fifteen years. Constant hanging around with no obvious purpose, constant teasing...If that doesn’t spell love (in a very high-school sort of way) I don’t know what does.
And when it came to the party night and when it became apparent just what the party was all about...Awww. My absolute favorite in this series.
