Check this anthology and novella, plus a review of The Hunters' Bloodline by Maria Bunda

 "Natalya Stravinsky, the charmingly neurotic werewolf from Coveted, is featured in this prequel novella. Before Thorn Grantham returned to South Toms River, New Jersey, Natalya lived alone with her stash of holiday trinkets. Her life takes an interesting turn when she faces a difficult challenge: to find a stolen figurine she'd recently won from a magical creatures auction website. It should be simple, just demand for it back from the pesky thief. But a set of events occurs that puts not only her life at risk, but her family's as well." From Amazon

I read Coveted and Kept, and absolutely loved them. I am excited to read this!! It came out today.

I'll try to put a link to B&N when it comes live.

Now Clive has to unravel the lies and deceit to find out what really happened.

Review: I found the concept for this book really interesting. I personally haven't read anything with the same kind of story line before this book. Clive and Andrea have a real chemistry that I could feel. The characters are very likable.

I had only a couple of problems with the book. Some of the scenes and explanations were a little confusing. I felt like in some of the world building there was either too much or too little information, depending on the part.
