Sophie Garou seems to have it all: a great job at a prestigious accounting firm, a closet that rivals a Nordstrom showroom, and a terrific boyfriend who isn’t afraid to use the “M” word. There’s just one little itty- bitty problem: Sophie is a werewolf–and her time of month has a whole new meaning. Needless to say, life among yummy flesh-and-blood humans is no piece of steak . . . er, cake!, but regular doses of wolfsbane tea and a mother who runs a magic shop have helped Sophie keep her paranormal pedigree under wraps. Still, when a sexy, golden-eyed werewolf prowls into town, Sophie finds herself struggling to keep her animal impulses in check–not to mention trying to keep things on track with her super hot (and super human) lawyer boyfriend.

SANDI SHILHANEK | Help With Category Recommendations
Guests / March 7, 2010

Every week when I sit down to write I try to think of what has caught my attention for the week that might catch yours as well. This week I’m going to be a bit selfish and ask for happy thoughts for a close family member. She’s going to be having a major surgery on Tuesday and has a long recuperation period ahead of her. Unfortunately I live too far away to be of much use during the recovery period, but I can provide her with plenty of material to read, and that’s where all of you come in. She loves category romances. Every month she’s at e-harlequin ordering the Harlequin Presents and the Harlequin Romances. Those are her two favorite series, but she will read other category romances. My question this week is do you read category romances? If so do you have a favorite line? A favorite book? A favorite author? Remember they can be a bit old as I live in a fairly large metropolitan area and have plenty of used bookstores to scour. Even if you don’t read category romances, but read shorter books say 300 pages or less I’d love your recommendations. What better thing…
