Soul mates, intended, betrothed, destined--call it what you may; I prefer shotgun romance. Throw all elements of the real world out the window. Jacque falls in love, discovers she is part werewolf, and gets involved in a battle-to-the-death ritual all in one week. Geez, I wish my weeks could be that exciting. Disregarding the fact that the book takes place over the course of one week, I fell in love with the characters' personalities. Jacque's girlfriends are hysterical sassy ladies who, despite needing some lessons in class, keep everyone light on their toes and add necessary touches of humor. I LOVED the possessive traits that Fane can't help but exhibit when it comes to his mate. He doesn't want another man to be the center of Jacque's attention and he isn't afraid to let her know it. He is all alpha-male and all the good things about a man wrapped up in one amazing package. Loftis definitely sold me on her interpretation of the werewolf mythology. Now on to book 2.
