To have and to howl…
Logan Black, former Marine and bodyguard for the Seattle Wolf Pack, hates weddings and has no plan to walk the path to matrimonial misery. But when he’s hired to protect a hot-to-trot wedding planner with a werewolf stalker, he’s forced to put his feelings aside. Not such an easy task when the damsel can turn him on with a single smoldering glance.
Wedding planner Veronica Vale knows werewolves exist, but hates them. One bit her sister, changing their lives forever. When a sexy Marine shows his gorgeous face at one of her wedding appointments, Veronica finds it hard to focus on the task at hand.
The chemistry drawing Logan and Veronica together seems fated, but with Logan’s playboy attitude, Veronica’s hatred for werewolves, and a stalker lurking in the shadows, these two need more than passion to keep them together.

” Logan hadn’t slept a wink last night, so he’d beaten the shit out of the punching bag hanging from the center of his garage instead. He’d blocked out everything—her taste, her smell, the curves of her body—and had taken out all his aggression on the bag. It’d helped. Until his knuckles started to bleed through the tape and his shoulders cramped.
When the alarm clock went off at 6 a.m., Logan hit the shower and cranked the water handle toward cold. He had to shake this Veronica haze. He couldn’t stop thinking about the softness of her skin when he dressed in a gray polo shirt and dark-washed jeans, or when he slipped boots on his feet. And every time he blinked, he saw Veronica’s body sprawled on the floor, her dress hiked up to her waist.
He didn’t want to complete the intimate bonding process—the werewolf’s equivalent of marriage—with anyone, let alone a human. That kind of life wasn’t in the cards for him. He was a hit man, for Christ’s sake. If there was a stable woman in his life, what would he do when he came home from work? “Honey, I’m home! Work was great. I slammed Butch’s face against a Dumpster behind Cosmo’s and finished the hit once I dragged him into the bed of my truck. Don’t worry, I’ll scrub the bloodstains out later. What’s for dinner?” So not happening.
He hadn’t even realized he’d been eating until his spoon slipped from his hand and flopped into his Grape Nuts, splashing milk all over his shirt. Fang looked up from the floor and whimpered.
“Damn it.” Snatching a towel hanging from the stove, Logan tried to scrape the wet drops away. It smeared the wetness into a funky blob. “Son of a—”
A loud, single-blaring honk sounded from outside.
He pushed back the chair and hauled ass to the front window. A taxi had pulled up in front of Veronica’s house, directly behind his truck. He was used to hearing her garage door open signaling her exit, but with her car in the shop, she must’ve called a cab.
“Damn it.” No chance to finish breakfast or wipe the mess off his shirt. “Where’s she going now?”
Veronica bolted down her walkway and hopped into the taxi. Once the cab pulled away from the curb, Logan snatched his keys off their hook and barreled out the door. His truck started up with a roar, and he peeled out to follow the fading yellow blur.
He wasn’t going to be able to protect her this way. Because he couldn’t keep his hands off, as Jake had asked him to do, everything had changed. He was going to have to say something about what he’d been hired to do, and why. If Jake didn’t say something by the end of the day, Logan was letting the cat out of the bag.
And he hated cats. ”
