Kitty and the Dead Man's Hand.
Description (Warning description might contain spoilers for those that are just starting the series)
Already the alpha pair of Denver's werewolf pack, Kitty and Ben now plan to tie the knot human-style by eloping to Vegas. Kitty is looking forward to sipping fru-fru drinks by the pool and doing her popular radio show on live TV, but her hotel is stocked with werewolf-hating bounty hunters. Elsewhere on the Strip an old-school magician might be wielding the real thing; the vampire community is harboring a dark secret; and the irresistible star of a suspicious animal act is determined to seduce Kitty. Sin City has never been so wild, and this werewolf has never had to fight harder to save not only her wedding, but her very life.
I really wanted to join in on the tour and read this series, but started having regrets because I am probably the least likely person to read a book on a werewolf. I didn't even know what the word lycanthrope meant. I don't know the legends, and myths of the whole genre. Yep.. I am a newbie to the werewolf world. But guess what? I enjoyed the book! I read part of the first book in the series to kind of get in the groove of the series and of course due to reading deadlines, I had to jump into the last two books right away for this tour. Hey I liked it!
I am going to read the whole series from beginning to end and review each one. I like Kitty, Ben and the whole werewolf thing. The Vegas setting is familiar to me. Fun books!!! I will continue to read on and enjoy. I also like that they aren't too too scary but just enough suspense for me.
I like the fact that these are cuddle up and read in a night or two. I also like Kitty, she is honest, brave and very cool!
