There haven’t been enough good romance novels that feature a female werewolf protagonist, –the only one that currently comes to mind is Blood and Chocolate by Annette Curtis Klause, which, despite its greatness and film potential, was turned into one of the worst werewolf movies I ever seen in my life. Thank god they haven’t taken an interest in her vampire romance The Silver Kiss, otherwise, Klause’s literary legacy would be completely lost. Anyway, there is finally an answer to the question of the century, at least the one surrounding werewolf romance fiction: “Where da shewolves at?” It’s refreshing to see an author take a new road, away from the stereotypical, masculine man-beast, and admit that hey, sometimes girls can get a little wild too.
MMDNewsWire reports on the new novel:
“FRANKLIN, N.H. (MMD Newswire) May 24, 2011 — “SheWolf” (ISBN 1461001684), a novel by J.D. Simpson, depicts the surprising partnership of Greg Lucian, a down-on-his-luck detective struggling with the death of his former partner, and detective Sloan, a mysterious female detective who isn’t what she seems.
After Greg’s partner is killed in a drive-by shooting for which Greg feels responsible, he can’t make up his mind to go on until the chief calls him in for a surprising assignment. He has to partner with Sloan, a strong, confident woman who’s a bit of an enigma, to bring down a mysterious crime syndicate targeted by the FBI. As he unravels the twin mysteries of Sloan’s true self and the crime syndicate, Greg will learn what his new partner is capable of and find his own form of revenge.
“This novel rewrites the rules of the werewolf genre,” says Simpson. “It has mystery, action, unrequited love, drama and more!”
Inspired by his love of mystery and fantasy novels, Simpson wrote “SheWolf” after being encouraged by family and friends. His take on the traditional werewolf story offers both new elements and a strong, inspiring female character. The first in an intended series of novels featuring the main character, the book offers readers surprising twists and turns as it builds to its conclusion.
“SheWolf” is available for sale online at Amazon.com and other channels.”
