Miss Congeniality - Shelley Laurenston
This story was set in the mid-eighties and it was fun to get some of the early history of the Van Holtz wolf pack. There were high tech references - 1985 style - throughout the story and it added a fun campy element to the plot. This was a fun read and I would recommend it.
Wicked Ways - Cynthia Eden
This story was a romantic suspense story with a jaguar shifter as the hero. He worked/works for the FBI and the heroine is being stalked by a serial killer vampire. It was full of humor (not silliness) and also quite enjoyable.
One great read, Shelly Laurenston's Miss Congeniality, and one good read. Cynthia Eden's Wicked Ways.
Miss Congeniality stars Irene Conridge and Niles Van Holtz who were introduced in her screamingly funny Go Fetch. No, you don't HAVE to have read it before Miss Congeniality - but if you've read Go Fetch you will definitely WANT to. It's the story of Irene [no people skills and frighteningly intellectual], and the Alpha shifter who is everything she's not [physical, wealthy, and charming]. And you know what they say about opposites...
Wicked Ways is a good read but has a different feel. The shifter hero saves the heroine from a crazed vampire attack - which is complicated by the heroine not believing in vampires OR shifters... It becomes even worse when they find out the villain is apparently a serial killer. Heroine volunteers to be 'bait' so they can catch the vamp, hero vows to make sure she lives through the experience and kill the vampire... The road to their 'Happily Ever After' is a real bumpy ride...

2 stories by 2 authors. I've only read on book by Laurenston(the mane event) and it was a lot better than this one IMO but this was still a good story. It's set in the 80's and you can definitely tell it's dated since she's a computer freak raving about the latest and greatest now-dinosaur! still a good story though I never quite identified with the female. Eden's story was pretty good as well and I'd like to read more by her.
