Catherine Marais is the star wereslayer of the feared Institut Scientifique, frequently hunting on several continents, but the werewolves of her native France have just put out a contract on her. Now she is the prey. With the help of her partner Paul DuJardin and her vampire lover Ian Morgan, Catherine has to fight a band of increasingly motivated weres who have their sights set on her, as well as her teenage niece who’s unknowingly fallen in love with a young werewolf. Worse than that: the boy's father is the one who ordered his pack to kill Catherine!
Battling werewolves is only half the problem: her vampire lover is committed to helping protect her, and he is an enviable killing machine when confronting his enemies, but in his heart he wants Catherine with him forever. Beside her in battle and in bed, Ian never loses sight of the long game and his plan to turn the star wereslayer into his immortal beloved.
This contemporary paranormal thriller is fast-paced from the first hunt and never slows down as the French werewolf community unites against the huntress. Filled with action and a deep look at the world of the Loup de Garous while also containing a terrific romantic subplot that enhances the prime story line, fans will appreciate the latest Catherine Marais’ saga.” —Harriet Klausner, Merry Genre Go Round Reviews
