BLUE MOON (Book 1)
Winner of the RITA® Award for Best Paranormal Romance!
When darkness falls, another world comes alive . . .
In Miniwa, Wisconsin the usually shy wolf population has changed. Suddenly they are on the attack and Jessie McQuade, local cop, has uncovered some strange happenings.
When she finds a wolf totem at the scene of an attack, she turns to Professor Will Cadotte, a member of the Ojibwe Tribe and an expert in Native American mythology, for help. It doesn't hurt that Will is tall, dark and gorgeous, as well as funny, smart and as sarcastic as Jessie herself. An uncommon attraction sparks between them, uncomfortable for Jessie, a woman who knows what she is--smart, competent and better off alone. She has never been, nor will she ever be pretty or petite. The two work together to discover what is rotten in Miniwa. They are getting nowhere until Edward Mandenauer shows up.
Mandenauer is as old as he is dangerous, and he's been hunting superwolves for a very long time. He and Jessie troll the forest with silver bullets while Will attempts to learn who is creating these wolves and why.
All of the evidence points to something supernatural, but Jessie, with her practical nature, is unconvinced. There's also the issue of Will himself, whose appearances and disappearances are interchangeable with that of the huge, black wolf that seems to be the leader of the pack.
As things get stranger and the rare Blue Moon approaches, Jessie wonders: Whom can she trust when the moon is full?
