Jessie McQuade is a cop and likes her life the way it is. However, she is called to the scene of a crime and her life will never be the same. In the course of the investigation she meets Will Cadotte a professor. She takes an icon found at the scene to him for information. Will is an Indian and from the wolf clan. He tells her what he knows and gives the totem back. Edward Mandenauer comes to help kill the rabid wolves that are invading Jessie's town. He takes her into his confidence and tells her that they are not mere wolves but werewolves. Jessie then begins to think that Will is one too and that he is only with her to get information. Little does Jessie know that the people she is closest to are not what they seem.
This is the first book I have read by Ms. Handeland. I will definitely be reading more. She tells a very good story with lots of information thrown in. Jessie is a very strong character but with some self esteem issues. Will wants someone to care for him because of more than his good looks. It's a romance but so much more. Very good read, fast and easy for me.
