An erotically charged, addictive thriller from the future queen of suspense.

Living in Toronto for a year, Elena is leading the normal life she has always dreamed of, including a stable job as a journalist and a nice apartment shared with her boyfriend. As the lone female werewolf in existence, only her secret midnight prowls and her occasional inhuman cravings set her apart. Just one year ago, life was very different. Adopted by the Pack when bitten, Elena had spent years struggling with her resentment at having her life stolen away. Torn between two worlds, and overwhelmed by the new passions coursing through her body, her only option for control was to deny her awakening needs and escape.

But now the Pack has called Elena home to help them fight an alliance of renegade werewolves who are bent on exposing and annihilating the Pack. And although Elena is obliged to rejoin her "family," she vows not to be swept up in Pack life again, no matter how natural it might feel. She has made her choice. Trouble is, she's increasingly uncertain if it's the right one.

An erotically charged thriller, Bitten will awaken the voracious appetite of every reader, as the age-old battle between man and beast, between human and inhuman forces, comes to a head in one small town and within one woman's body.

Bitten is one of the most enthralling werewolf books I have ever read. Seeing werewolf life through the eyes of Elena, a reluctant werewolf brings a whole new level of understanding to what life may be like for werewolves and other supernatural creatures "changed" against their will.

Elena is the only female werewolf in the world. Werewolves are only born male and female humans who become infected never survive the transformation. Elena is the exception to the rule. A year ago, she fled the pack to live a normal human life. But when the pack needs her, she goes back and faces her true nature and the man who made her what she is today.

Elena is very real. She's messed up because of what she's become. She loved Clayton, but then he infected her. Hurt, angry and full of self-hate, she still manages to come running when duty calls. Her relationship with Clayton, as well as her relationship with pack alpha Jeremy, is so full of emotion that you feel fully involved in the story.

Bitten is dark but written in a way makes it difficult to pull yourself away from the story. This is one of those books you just can't help but read in one sitting.
