Megan Phillips has just lost her grandfather. She is trying to run the family market in Chinatown. She dreams of her grandfather every night, but his parting words haunt her. They are a puzzling riddle for Meg to figure out until a man appears who may be the answer she is looking for.
Dr. Jie Sing was bitten by a werewolf three years ago. Since that time, he has been able to keep himself from changing by using tai chi, but for some reason the beast within is now demanding release. His godfather, Li, is the only one who knows of Jie’s curse.
When Li tells Jie of the star chart he has showing Jie’s destiny, Jie agrees to follow his destiny to Boston, Massachusetts. Once there, he is to look for his mate. He will know her by the smooth ivory, deep jade and golden silk. There are a few problems. Jie is colorblind, and another werewolf is after his mate, one who is bad for her. Jie will be forced to do something that is against everything he believes in order to protect his mate.
This is a story full of adventure, action, romance and steamy love scenes. I liked the role family plays throughout the telling of this tale. Whether deceased or alive, family is a very big part of this particular book. It moves at a very quick pace, but slows down in order to allow the reader to savor the appropriate places. I had a hard time understanding some of the Asian cultural aspects of this story, but I would recommend reading it. Ms. Guillone writes a fascinating tale.
