Book Blurb:
Talk about a bad-hair day!

Sophie Garou is a master at taming her inner beast, which comes in handy since she’s a werewolf. With a big promotion at work and a supersexy boyfriend, Heath (whom she recently spotted leaving a jewelry store with a beguiling ring box), she’s one happy girl.

But when Heath starts spending long nights at the office with his new associate–a dead-ringer for Career Day Barbie–Sophie smells trouble. And when her professional relationship with her big new client–who also happens to be Texas’s brilliantly blue-eyed most eligible bachelor–begins to sizzle, she wonders if her animal instincts are leading her in the wrong direction. Just when it seems that things can’t get any more complicated, they do. The Houston werewolf pack has sniffed Sophie out, and their message is chillingly clear: you’re either with us or against us. And unless she can prove that she’s with them, the next full moon may just be her last.

My thoughts:
Hanging on to her semi-quiet life and remaining hidden from the Houston werewolves is about to come to a screeching halt for Sophie Garou. They’ve found her and brought trouble to her front door, but that’s only a start to Sophie’s troubles. Someone’s trying to hex her mother and her love life is suddenly out of control.

The new client that earned Sophie a partnership at work has set his sights on more than business, and she’s finding that temptation hard to resist. With the Houston pack issuing demands that could cost Sophie her life, and a group of young werewolves looking to her for guidance, life has just taken a complicated turn.

This is the second book in the Tales of an Urban Werewolf series. Some of Sophie’s worst fears have come true when word gets around and she’s discovered by the Houston werewolf pack. Ms. MacInerney shares a sequel that’s every bit as difficult to set down as the first. On the Prowl grabs the reader’s attention with its danger filled action, and keeps them engaged through the heroine’s intriguing adventure. Fans won’t want to miss Sophie’s latest hair raising exploits.

I almost ordered this the other day from Amazon but I still haven't read book one yet! I read one of MacInerney's cozy mysteries, Dead and Berried a year or so ago and loved it. She's a great writer. I am very curious of how she is at paranormals..I should read it soon!
