A solid werewolf romance for high school/upper middle. Grace has been obsessed with the wolves living in her woods ever since she was attacked as a child, then somehow protected and saved by one of them. When Sam shows up naked and shot on her back porch, she's knows from his eyes that he is her wolf. Better writing than a lot of offerings in this genre, and an interesting twist: it's not the moon (or sparkly vampires) that brings on the wolfy change, it's the cold. So what better setting than northern Minnesota, which is a fun local touch even though the author lives in Virginia.

A big ol' lead-in to the sequel (Linger, due July 2010) will leave readers begging for more.
