This middling series starter introduces a paranormal romance novelist whose fiction turns out to be true.A Werewolf in Manhattan: ...
Textbook Aidan Wallace, heir to a pack of wealthy New York werewolves, worries that someone is leaking info to writer Emma Gavin, so he follows her on tour. Sparks quickly fly, and when Emma is stalked by a werewolf fan, Aidan shifts from pack spy to devoted protector and is predictably torn between his passion for Emma and his family obligations, including a long-arranged marriage. The central romance is stronger than the surrounding interpack politics and family drama, despite a ludicrous werewolf-specific "genetic condition" that provides unnecessary excuses for bedroom romps. Though weakened by an overly quick and easy resolution, Thompson (Over Hexed) provides a sufficiently clever setup and enough heated sex scenes to satisfy any werewolf romance fan. (Jan.)

Thompson takes the tired werewolf tale and makes it fresh and new when romance novelist Emma Gavin’s too-realistic werewolf novels attract the attention of Aidan Wallace, heir apparent and security head of the Wallace pack. While trying to discover whether Emma has inside information on the workings of weres, Aidan discovers she has a werewolf stalker and decides to accompany her as security on her book tour. While Emma usually takes public transportation because of environmental concerns, Aidan insists on a car and driver in town and first-class accommodations and air travel. Their undeniable attraction to one another leads to blistering hot sex in the Palmer House Hotel on the Chicago leg of the tour. Difficulties facing them include the fact that the Wallace family and Chicago’s wealthy Henderson werewolf family have very different plans for Aidan. Thompson takes on lifestyles of the rich and the danger of a stalker in a fun and entertaining tale. --Diana Tixier Herald
