Wow. Great book! Just what I needed. It was a quick read and I was into it immediately. I'd never read a book with wolves in it before, other than Twilight. I enjoyed the love story. I'm a sucker for those. I dreamed of Sam last night *sigh* The story was focused on Grace and Sam with him a werewolf being the backdrop to their story. It was great! You need to pick this up! I love werewolves now!!! I can't wait for the second installment, Linger, out next year.
