How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf by Molly Harper
About Mo Wenstein, who finds a naked guy with a bear trap clamped to his ankle on her porch. Things go from strange to unbelievable when he then turns into a wolf. Her surly neighbor Cooper Graham, who has been openly critical of Mo’s ability to adapt to life in Alaska, has trouble of his own. Werewolf trouble.
Coming out February 22, 2011.
Under Wraps (The Underworld Detection Agency Chronicles) by Hannah Jayne
About Sophie Lawson, who has a gorgeous werewolf as her UDA boss and a fashionista vampire for a roommate. She thinks she knows everything there is to know about the undead, the unseen, and the uncanny, that is until a rash of gruesome murders has demons and mortals running for cover.
Coming out March 1, 2011.
The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf by Molly Harper
That’s right, another one from Harper. When a snooping outsider comes to town to investigate rumors of werewolves in the area, the valley’s pack alpha, Maggie Graham, resolves to chase him away, even if doing so takes a quick bite on the butt. What a pity that researcher Nick Thatcher turns out to be so drool-worthy, and that his kisses make Maggie want to sit up and beg. Maggie just can’t seem to convince Nick to leave . . . and even worse, she can’t convince herself to stay away from him. Cross-species dating is problem enough for a harried alpha female, but on top of that, a rival group of werewolves is trying to move into the valley. With interpack war threatening, Maggie can’t afford to be distracted. Combining romance and a career can be tough for anyone; for a werewolf in love with a human, it may be disastrous.
Coming out March 29, 2011.
The Last Werewolf by Glen Duncan
This werewolf novel is about Jake, who is a bit on the elderly side (he turns 201 in March), but otherwise in the pink of health. The nonstop sex and exercise he’s still getting probably contribute to that, as does his diet: unusual amounts of flesh and blood (at least some from friends and relatives). Jake, of course, is a werewolf, and with the death of his colleague he has now become the only one of his kind. This depresses Jake to the point that he’s been contemplating suicide. Yet there are powerful forces who for very different reasons want—and have the power—to keep Jake alive.
Coming out July 12, 2011.
Daughters of Artemis
Werewolf lore has been long dominated by the strong alpha male, but what of the strong alpha females? This collection of short stories explores this long neglected aspect of the werewolf mythos. (Added note: the cover is done by Nathie, one of my favorite artists!)
Coming out July 18, 2011.
As you can see, we’ve got a LONG wait for some of these. Here’s hoping more books pop up, otherwise werewolf fans won’t have much to read these upcoming months.
