Sean Holloway's insatiable appetite for the female form knows no bounds until a new scent captures his attention. When the hunt for the owner of such captivating aroma brings him to Jem Stonehouse, Sean is at once taken by the sight of her and intrigued by these sensations she solely stirs. Her fragrance stays with him long after she boldly turns down his attentions and walks away, but Sean's pursuit is only further piqued by this and will not be denied. Not even by the firm objections from his Alpha brother.

After several weeks of stimulating conversation and secret rendezvous's with Sean, Jem believes he's turned over a new leaf from his philandering ways. She in turn defies her Mother's protests to stay away from him and continues their whirlwind courtship neither of them expected and one that could quite literally change Jem's life forever. However, acceptance is key and none more so than Jem's acceptance of the existence of werewolves and that she just might have fallen for one.

The ease with which the story flows is amazing to say the least. From the first page the reader will be sucked into this historical paranormal romance while listening to Sean's telling of his and Jem's first meeting that started it all. It was most definitely love at first sniff for him and although he was a cad with the ladies and held high regard in his rakish reputation, everything changes when the innocent and challenging Jem enters his life. They instantly became a couple to root for.

While the descriptive element in the writing seems lacking in illustrating the setting and characters a bit more, it was made up for by the quality in the writing. The dialogue and romantic/conflict development created an attractive atmosphere that I couldn't help but fall into. After reading this very promising start to the Holloway Pack series, I am incredibly curious to find out what happens next and believe readers interested in this sub-genre of romance will be too.
