Melody’s love life is in a bit of a dry spell…for the last two years. Content tracking down archaeological evidence of werewolf packs, she spends her time wearing wellingtons and covered in mud rather than looking for a date. Knowing her worried brother isn’t above arranging a kidnapping to get her to go on a date, she agrees to a match with 1Night Stand, figuring Madame Eve has to be a better matchmaker than her beloved brother.

Money, fame, looks—rock star and werewolf Aaron Rixx has it all, except the one thing that truly matters…love. Yearning for a woman to see him for who he is, he lets Madame Eve make all the arrangements. No matter where he goes, as the lead singer of the world famous band, Lyric Hounds, he’s always recognized…so all he expects is a night of hot sex and a quiet weekend with his music.

He never anticipates Madame Eve might find the one woman on the planet who doesn’t recognise him on sight…or the one he and his wolf identify instantly as their mate. Will one night be enough for him to convince Melody she’s his forever?


Review:  Melody’s Wolf is the first book in the Lyric Hounds series by Mina Carter and its also the 170th book in the 1NightStand series. 1NightStand series is a series that is written by several authors about a mysterious woman who sets up one night stands that end up with the couple having a happily ever after. I chose this book because I love a good werewolf (or shifter) book.

Melody is an archaeologist on the hunt for evidence of werewolf packs. She has not had a relationship in two years so her brother sets up a one-night stand. I loved that Melody was not a slim stick of a woman. She reflect what many woman look like today without a poor body image.

Aaron is the lead singer for the rock band Lyric Hounds and is also a werewolf. Aaron is tired of all the fame and wants one girl that see him for him and not as a rock star. Therefore, Aaron signs himself up for a one-night stand. The one thing that bugged me was while Aaron is a shifter he does no shift in the book. The only indication that he something other than human is his sense of smell.

The chemistry between Melody and Aaron is scorching. The sex scenes is blistering. Melody is the perfect woman for Aaron in so many ways. Melody and Aaron have a great chance at a relationship.

I found this story to be well written and the characters interesting. I would love to know more about Melody and Aaron. This is the first book by Ms. Carter that I have read and I will be on the lookout for more by her in the future as well as other books in the Lyric Hounds series. Overall, I enjoyed this book a lot.
