Wooing a life mate can be hard enough for a wolf, wooing one while under the threat of a curse even more so. Wooing a mate while pretending to be her dog? Nearly impossible. After being drugged and captured by Animal Control, Max Adams is on Hoboken’s doggie death row when his life mate adopts him, takes him home, and promptly names him Fluffy. While JC, in all her new-pet-owner-ness, feeds “Fluffy” vile kibble, dresses him in mortifying dog couture, and schedules to have his manhood removed, Max’s human side gets to know JC. Especially in the biblical sense. Hopefully well enough to make her fall madly in love, mate with him under the full moon, and move with him to Cedar Glen to live happily every after forever and ever amen. And fast. Because the curse comes with a deadline…and the clock is ticking.
