Kari Pearce lives the life of a lone werewolf. No one knows of her affliction, not even her sister. When she hears of a missing child up in the Sequoias, Kari goes on the hunt to find the child and her abductor before tragedy can occur. Saving the child is easy, avoiding the FBI agent associated with the case is not.

Agent Nick Murdock knows he’s seen Kari before, but damn if he can remember where. There’s one thing he knows for sure. Kari Pearce, with her blonde hair and piercing blue eyes, is hiding something. And Nick is going to find out what.


Review: From the first page to the last this is a book that keeps you wanting to read to find the outcome. It holds all the key ingredients for a great story. You have everything from danger and suspense, to romance, with some steamy sex added in.

For Kari Pierce, romance is just not something that comes easy when you have a secret that most men wouldn’t be able to understand let alone handle. But, from the first time she meets sexy FBI agent Nick Murdock her world gets turned upside down.

Kari is on the hunt for an eight year old girl that was abducted. The best way to find the girl in the mountains is to shape shift into her wolf form. She is then able to track the young girl and her abductor.

But nothing is easy. She tracks the girl and captures the girl only to have the man that abducted the girl escape.

This is where the story takes a nice turn. Nick follows Kari as she goes for a hike. She is able to sneak up on him with no sound whatsoever, which intrigues him. They end up near a waterfall where the heat and chemistry that is between them takes off. Hot, animal lust takes over in the cave behind the waterfall.

Kari and Nick end up tracking and capturing the escaped man, leaving Nick with questions that Kari just won’t answer.

Thinking Nick wouldn’t understand about her being a werewolf, Kari leaves him and goes back to her world. With the help of his boss Nick finds the answers needed and goes after Kari.

Ms. Bybee leaves you wanting more in the romantic quickie. A nice short read for a busy day.
