Zarifa needs a bodyguard. Mad Dog needs to escape. Maybe the two of them will be able to work out a way to get what they need, while fighting their passions.
I have never read a science fiction-esque story that features werewolves. It was so completely unexpected and new that it took me quite a while to actually get into it. But then I realised how great an idea the nano-bots through the blood stream were and how much I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Now I’m hooked.
There is a fairly typical storyline throughout this paranormal romance novella – boy meets girl in unorthodox circumstances (in this case she hires him to be her bodyguard slave), they fall in lust, start to fall in love. A spanner is thrown into the works, then they realise that they want to be together forever anyway. However, the fact that the girl was an empress with combat skills who had been drugged her entire life, the boy was an incredibly powerful and deadly werewolf, and there was a royal conspiracy afoot. That’s what made this novella so different and special. Now I just have to find a new Angela Knight story to sink my teeth into…
