This is the Christine Warren that I LOVE!!! This was the story of Alpha of Silverback Werewolf Clan Graham Winters and his wife Missy. Graham is such a playboy that he has started getting bored with sex. That is until he gets to know Missy, who is far from a sex kitten. This plain, quiet, kindergarten teacher has been fantasizing about Graham since his vampire friend married her friend Reggie. Until now, Graham has paid no attention to Missy until she dresses up for her Fantasy Fix. Now that he has noticed her (smelled her), she will not be able to get away from him. Missy has a lot to deal with. She has a hard time believing that a guy like Graham could actually want her. She also has to figure out what being Luna involves. This was a great story. It was originally published as Fur Factor at Ellora's Cave.
Good read - this is a rewrite of her original Fur Factor from the ebook series Fixed. There are some changes - mostly smoothing out the bumps in the plotting. She changed one scene considerably [to be truer to the character perhaps] but I did enjoy the older version better. A quibble only, it is still a fun, fast read.
Graham is the Alpha of the Pack and is having political problems. When he finds his very unwolflike mate [meek and mild and human] his problems are aggravated. Missy is a kindergarten teacher - and even a roomful of 5 year olds on a sugar high are not as scary as werewolf lover who is trying to convince her that she is a) beautiful, b) riveting and c) his mate. How can she believe a guy [any guy, to say nothing of the most gorgeous one she's ever seen] means forever when he ignored her for the first three weeks of their acquaintance, then throws her over his shoulder and takes her home for a night of wild sex?

When this book came, it sounded so interesting I put down the book I was reading and started on this one. I finished it in a day, it was such a fun read. Not extremely indepth or complicated hero and heroine, a straight forward werewolf romance that I loved.
These are always good for a quick fun read. The plots aren't intricate but they are still enjoyable.
Graham Winters, alpha werewolf of his pack, has troubles with a cousin who wants to usurp his position - he plans to use the fact that Graham doesn't have a mate against him, as alphas must be a mated pair, and the pack is starting to get antsy about how long it's taking him to find one.
Missy Roper, kindergarten teacher, has always been a shy wallflower, and can only dream about Graham, who has never noticed her before, not even when she is paired with his as best man and maid of honor. But her friends persuade her to dress like a vamp to her best friend's post-wedding party, and suddenly she arouses his interest. More than that, wolf instincts kick in and he realizes he has found his mate. Only one problem - she is human, and the pack won't take kindly to that.
Typical setup for a typical romance, albeit with a paranormal twist. I have to be honest - I picked up this book to trade and only peeked into it because I wanted to see how good the sex was (it was pretty good). But the more I read the more I got sucked into the story. Yes, it did have a story, and I was astounded to realize I actually enjoyed it - it was fun! Oh, it still had parts that were only worth skimming, but for a couple of hours of mindless relaxation, this fit the bill exactly. I was intrigued by the characters and enjoyed the bantering dialogue along with the chapter-long sex scenes, and the story stopped right where it should, before the reader can get bored with it. Wonder of wonders, I even find myself wanting to know how the pup turns out. Looks like I've found another guilty pleasure.
