Claire Hallowell is deep undercover in a small town looking for a serial killer. Someone is murdering beautiful young women and has been for a long time. Posing as Dorothy, an assistant to the chief of police, Claire is ready to get to the bottom of this case. A conflict interferes with her investigation when Chief Derek Jacob shows up. He has her aching for just one touch, and he is the main suspect in this case. Claire has to be on guard against his sensual looks and the promise of a good time.
Derek is the alpha male of his werewolf pack, and he has been waiting impatiently for his mate. When he gets a whiff of Dorothy's scent, he knows he has found her. Chief Jacob pulls out all the stops trying to seduce his lovely assistant. When he finds out that Dorothy is not even her real name, Derek decides he will coax all of Claire's secrets from her.
Working together to find the serial killer brings Derek and Claire closer together. As the sexual tension mounts between them, they will finally release their pent up passion and have a scorching affair. The danger builds as they connect the clues to find the murderer. When a new main suspect enters the picture, an evil being from Claire's past will return to bring a whole new meaning to hell on earth.
Ms. Penn uses suspense, humor, raunchy sex, action, and adventure to grab the reader in this hot tale of paranormal fantasy. Claire is an independent character who is strong and capable of handling any alpha male character. Derek is a no nonsense dominant male without being overwhelming. The first line in Mating Claire is hilarious, and I was riveted from there. The author uses wonderfully vivid words to describe everything from the office, the forest, the passionate encounters. Paranormal stories usually have me jumping for joy to read, but this novel had me excited to spread the word about the sensational book I read. Readers, pay attention because here is a tale fit for any book lover. Spectacular read!
CAUTION: This book contains graphic sex scenes and passionate encounters. Not for the weak hearted.
