Set in our modern world, this paranormal romance features Raphael Ramirez, a hunky assertive powerful werewolf, and a bright, blond, newly minted were-jaguar, Catherine Turner. In the process of taking over as alpha wolf, Raphael is caught between his duty to his pack, which abhors non-wolves, and his blossoming love for his were-trainee, Catherine. As the full moon brings out the need for shape shifting and hunting, the Howling Moon serves as the time when bad things happen, especially for this werewolf pack. From official release/information:
Book Description: He's a wolf... She's a jaguar... Raphael is a former agent of the shape shifter secret police, forced into retirement after a very public scandal. Now he's assigned to help the victim of a hideous crime -- a woman who has been attacked by a serial killer, and accidentally turned into a were-jaguar.
Worse yet, Catherine turns out to be Raphael's fated mate. But the serial killer is still on her trail, and perhaps even worse, Raphael's pack wants her dead.
Caught between destiny and duty... Raphael must make his choice -- and, in doing so, perhaps lose his pack -- in this tale of obsession, revenge, lust, pack politics, and true love.
