Paula Redding is a Homicide Detective, but that’s not all she is. She’s a Werewolf, trying to hang on to her humanity while solving murders. Sometimes those murders are caused by the rare Werewolf infringing on her territory. Keeping her two lives separate hasn’t been too difficult until now. A string of murders indicates a serial killer, but the type of killing tells Paula that the killer is a Werewolf. However, not a female testing Paula’s authority, but a very rare Alpha male. Paula has never seen a male, but now that she has his scent there’s no going back to human for her. Is her carefully ordered world about to implode?
This is one compelling story! How do you reconcile two halves of your whole when one half is so primitive as to completely overwhelm everything that makes you human? Paula is between a rock and a hard place. She has a need to protect everything in her territory, but a rare Alpha is in town and her submerged Werewolf will not be denied the pleasure of mating, something she has never done in that form. It doesn’t matter that she has a job she takes very seriously or a man she loves very much. All that matters is the Werewolf and the most basic of urges.
This story is dark and is very gory in spots. I would have liked a bit more development of Jenks’ character and seen more of Paula’s relationship with him. I think that would have made what happened more horrific. Not that it wasn’t already, but the connection would have made the ending that much more painful to watch. Though this story technically has an ending, I’d be curious to see what happens later down the road. All-in-all a terrific emotion-filled read.

A strange orb falls from the sky and lands in the swamp where Jason lives. He fishes it out, but when he accidentally touches one of the buttons he suddenly finds himself turned into a woman. Hearing a helicopter he races back to his cabin to hide the sphere. Before he can figure out how to get his own body back his buddy John knocks on the door. What was he going to do?
Not badly written, this story took me by surprise. I’m not sure why I thought it was monster porn other than it takes place in a swamp, but instead of monster sex I got gender swapping. Fairly creative with decent sex scenes I would definitely read more about Jason, John and the mysterious sphere. That would be pretty cool to have as long as there were no bad side effects.
