As a moonwulf, Daciana never expected to fall in love with a human. Hell, she never imagined that she’d abandon her pack, endanger everyone around her, and break the worst rule possible. But she did.

A rogue werewolf is killing Daciana’s friends, and she sets on capturing the creature.  She’ll do whatever it takes to stop the beast. The police and her boyfriend, Inspector Connell Lonescu, are starting to question her involvement in the murders, which is endangering the pack’s secret existence.

Here's an excerpt:
 
OPENING OF CHAPTER 4

The phone’s strident ringing woke me up, and I glanced over at the bedside clock blazing
5:13 A.M. Too damn early for anything.
Tempted to dive back under the covers, I checked the caller ID: Connell. Crap. The previous night’s events came pouring back: me turning into a wulfkin outside the full moon, running with the pack all night, collecting my keys from the woods, and ditching Connell again. On top of that, I never retrieved the old books for the elixir. Double crap.
I pushed my legs over the edge of the bed, scrunched the sheet in my fist and answered the call. “Hi.”
“Where are you?” The panic in his voice turned my stomach.
“At home.”
“What happened to you last night?”
My throat dried up as my mind whirred with excuses. “I uncovered something in my research and got stuck into it, not realizing it was past midnight when I checked the clock. I didn’t want to wake you and went straight home. I’m sorry.”
“I suspected you wouldn’t come. Looks like I was right.”
“Come on, Connell, give me a break. I’m working on something majorly important.
When you’re on a case and spend nights in the office, I don’t give you shit about it.”
“That’s not what pisses me off. It’s that you never tell me anything. Send me a message if you’re going to be late or not turn up, anything to let me know what’s going on. It feels like you’re only staying with me on until something better comes along.”
“That’s not true. I only want you.”
Silence.
I lowered my head and stared at the dirt beneath my toenails from the previous night’s run.
“I don’t want to talk about this now,” he said. “We found two more bodies this morning. The victims were located on the opposite sides of the city.” He paused. “Why would a wolf bolt across the city after a kill? They attack in packs, don’t they?”
A shiver rippled down my spine, the possibility of two more dracwulf kills made me furious. There was no convincing myself the attacks weren’t related to the others; I felt the truth in my gut. Worse yet, I wondered whether the dracwulf was simply hungry or territorial, and Sandulf had to know. I flopped onto the bed and curled into a ball.
When I gave no response, Connell continued. “I need you to review the reports from the previous attacks today and visit the new scenes to see if you believe it's the same animal.”
I cringed at the innocent wolves who could lose their lives over Sandulf’s stupidity.
“Your team can test the evidence and see if it’s the same predator without me.”
“We have limited testing resources in this country, so we need your expertise to move things along.”
The way he said “your” sounded full of contempt, and it pained me to hear him talk like that.
“The chief wants a hunting party issued this weekend, preferably with Romania’s Animal Research Institute’s approval. He’s already spoken with your boss, Vasile.”
I climbed up and paced the room, shaking my head. Typical Vasile to agree to anything the cops asked.
“If I could leave you out of this, I would, but I can’t. Trust me, I tried.”
“I appreciate that. Where should we meet?”
“Piaţa Square. Half an hour?”
“I can do that.”
He hung up.
A snarl ripped past my throat at the terrible start to the day. Who could blame Connell for being upset? I’d be livid if he kept avoiding me.
I threw on a pair of Levi’s, boots, and a gray hooded top. The bathroom mirror reflected gray wolf eyes from my recent transformation, and already the silvery color was fading into a darker shade. I pulled every strand of my nest-style hair into a ponytail and rushed outside into the morning twilight.

    5. see it this way: you already have a huge wishlist and TBR pile, if you wait it will be PRINT book so i'm sure you can keep busy for 6months before indulging to this one^^

      Delete
    6. Thats true. I do have a huge pile that I could read and we're always finding more.

      Delete
    7. ^^ just need to put a post it or something to remember to pre order this one when it's possible^^ ( since i can't order that often i do have some pre oredr months... months before the release ^^;;)

      Delete
    8. I have a whole notebook full of books that I want or were interested in. I do preorder on occasion if its alot cheaper.

      Delete
    9. i had a notebook too!!! needs to put it up to date and i will start a separation with book in print so more urgent wishlist and those only digital ( in hope for later print) ^^ i prefer to have it on paper and not only on internet/computer^^

      Delete
    10. LOL we really are alike. I need to seperate mine too. Its all a jumble. I also have a booklist of all the books I own in a binder sorted by authors last name. It helps me so I dont end up getting doubles.

      Delete
    11. Me too*__* though i'm just starting it this year. i didn't want to have double so i made a little note book but it was quickly full( even more sinec i put french book with english one) so this year i took a book and started again by author name but on each authors page i also classify the books by series and i put the editor in athor color too so i if my mother took it to see if i have one she want to offer me she would see the right edition

      so do have so much in common thogether and with brenda that's frightening^^ ( but i guess that become necessity for books lovers so we are probably a lot to have though of that)

      Delete
    12. My mom and me share one so I dont have that problem fortunately. I also do mine by series within the author. I've put it all into a binder with tabs of the alphabet to make it easier. I used to have it all handwritten but my aunt was soo bored at her job (another long story) that she typed everything up for me and put them into spread sheets. Its really nice. She adds the new books I get and will print me new lists every month or so.

      Delete
    13. I dont know if you use this site or not but I find it really helpful with finding series orders. It doesnt have every author but its been a big help to me. - http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/

      Delete
    14. i would take hours ok even days to type all ^^ i tried for my mother but in the end i we,t back to a special notebook with teh info really more easy.

      i didn't know this site but he is interesting so i've bookmarked it thank you!

      Delete
    15. Yea I couldnt do it! She did it over like a months span. She likes to work and her job has her doing nothing for most of her 9 hour days. So she asked to do it. I would just hand write everything and search through it that way.
      I do really love that site. Its great for finding series and if its an "adult" author it will take you to that site automatically.

      Delete
    16. ^^ at least your files is up to date^^ so she did you a great gift^^ and you gave me a new idea of gift now^^ i just have to think of how to create what i have in mind

      Delete
    17. :) Im intrigued now. Im very thankful for what she did. Its soo much easier searching now through my books. I didnt mind doing it all by hand but it was a great blessing that she wanted to type them out for me. Now I just need to figure out the program so I can continue it. :)

      Delete
    18. on that note i need to go get a new book.... i will separate french books than english one because... right now all the pages are used ( not completed just teh name of the author) and i still have several to include so either i will still mix french and english but do part 1 and part 2 or separate ( i think separate will be more easy, less pages to move and more easy if my mother is looking for something she just has to take the french one...)

      Delete
    19. Yes it would probably get confusing if you put them together. :)

      Delete
    20. so a shopping time soon ^^ with you in mind too^^

      i guess you didn't think it was that kind of notebook though^^

      Delete
    21. I was thinking it was one of those plain ones until you showed me. Thats what I was originally using before I moved to the binder.

      Delete
    22. ^^ no plain one i immediately thought it wouldn't be good enough since i couldn't add a new author between two already there ... at first i had a pocket binder ( yes really REally too small^^)

      Delete
    23. I didnt originally have it alphabatized within the letters. Like I had all the A's together and like the actual author (ex.Kelley Armstrong) but it wasnt in actually order like Armstrong came before Ashley. Which was a complete pain. I was constantly rewriting trying to be more organized. Then it went to binder with loose leaf paper. Then thank god for my aunt and her boredom! :) I'll love her forever for tpying them up.
