Although in a wheelchair, Athena Munroe has become an accepted part of Denver society, mainly though her brother's enormous wealth and her own extraordinary charitable efforts. Morgan Holt is an ex-con who has served time for killing his father. Now part of a sideshow in French's Fantastic Family Circus, which Athena has hired to perform for "her" orphans, Morgan has long since come to grips with the very thing that Athena is suppressing about herself--the fact that he's a werewolf. Many barriers stand in their way to love: an over-protective brother, two jealous would-be lovers, and society itself. There's no middle ground for them. Either Morgan denies his Wolf and forces himself into a form acceptable to the "civilized" world, or Athena leaves her opulent, secure world and embraces her Wolf. Krinard has created a magical world where the freaks and outcasts exhibit more humanity than the so-called "normal" people. Her werewolves, tortured souls never resembling their trite Hollywood counterparts, make incredibly sympathetic characters, and this is a truly engrossing story.
I really loved this book. I lost the first one I had and went and bought another one!! Truly great read!!

I was IN LOVE with this book...all the way through I just was engrossed in all the characters and rooting for the good guys! Then about the last 1/5 of the book I thought another author finished it! I won't spoil it but I was very disappointed at the actions of one of the female main characters. The book was good but it went from a "keeper" to a "pass it on".
With that said, I love werewolf books and will be trying more of Krinard.
