Howling At The Moon by Karen Mcinerney

Romance is about to get a little hairy.

Sophie Garou seems to have it all: a great job at a prestigious accounting firm, a closet that rivals a Nordstrom showroom, and a terrific boyfriend who isn’t afraid to use the “M” word. There’s just one little itty-bitty problem: Sophie is a werewolf–and her time of month has a whole new meaning.

Needless to say, life among yummy flesh-and-blood humans is no piece of steak . . . er, cake!, but regular doses of wolfsbane tea and a mother who runs a magic shop have helped Sophie keep her paranormal pedigree under wraps. Still, when a sexy, golden-eyed werewolf prowls into town, Sophie finds herself struggling to keep her animal impulses in check–not to mention trying to keep things on track with her super hot (and super human) lawyer boyfriend. What’s more, someone is threatening to expose Sophie for what she really is. And when her mother is accused of selling a poison-laced potion, Sophie must sniff out a culprit before the fur hits the fan.

I see to read a lot of paranormal romance involving vampires but, there doesn't seem to be a huge amount about werewolves this was a very light and easy to read one just don't go expecting another Elena from Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series!

Definitely as far as Were novels go this leans more towards the chick lit variety and TBH there seems more of that than the Paranormal - Sophie's mother is a witch so it was good to have a lirttle witchiness sprinkled in for good measure.

Sophie is a great sassy like character and as the narrator of the novel its good that she's quite likeable. Its not got the punch of KA's novels or Patricia Briggs but, for a light read in this genre this is good but, if you haven't read the others I would recommend those over this.
