Hit man Tony Giodone has seen some wacky whack jobs but this takes the cake. Sue Quentin, winner of a huge lottery jackpot, wants him to off her. She is so desperate to get away from her obnoxiously calculating and avaricious family, she feels that death is the only escape. Tony, meanwhile, has made a miscalculation. Ever since he was bitten by one of his targets, he has experienced three days of amnesia at the full moon, during which he turns into a wolf, so he usually locks himself away in a soundproof suite in the Plaza. Fortunately, he wakes up this time to find that Sue is still alive and well. A powerful bout of lovemaking leaves Tony certain that he has found his mate, and he will do anything for Sue, even kill her if that's what she wants. This unusual, artfully constructed, and enticing blend of horror and romance will have wide appeal with its male point of view, intensely sexy love story, and caperlike action. Diana Tixier Herald

I read the book in one sitting. I look forward to the next book in the series, because it has to be the beginning of a series. A world this enjoyable deserves more than one visit. This book has some new twists in the werewolf's tail that were very cool. (Laurell K. Hamilton)

Having said that--this one was just BAD. I really, really wanted to like this book because of "Moon's Fury," and I was really looking forward to having a new series to devour. But the characters were completely one dimensional and cliched. Tony is the "hitman with a heart of gold" who goes against everything that he believes in and holds as truth for a woman that he barely knows. Sue is weak, whiny, and can't do anything for herself. All the characters are black-and-white good-or-evil and there was absolutely no ambiguity in anyone's character.
Really, the book is just filled to the brim with cliches that made me really, really sad. I recommend skipping right to "Moon's Fury" as the characters actually have substance and the plot is infinitely more interesting.
Sue Quentin has the kind of trouble we would all like. She has won 268 million dollars in the lotto. Now her life has gone to the pits. She feels her only way to get out of her problems is to hire a hitman. It must be bad for her to want to die. Who does she pick but Tony.
Tony might be a hitman but he doesn't feel Sue needs his services. With a lot of black humor and a little male instinct he convinces her to give it one more year and then he would do the job.
Meanwhile Sue finds her hitman to be the first one to ever understand her. Tony finds himself attracted to the first woman who has wanted him to kill her. The electricity and sexual tension is scary to a man devoted to him profession. Sue's family, from her hypocondriac drunken druggy mother, to her suave self-centered syblings, puts the dis in disfunctyonal.
Written from Tony's view point, this is a great read I couldn't put it down. Tony works for the mob and when other want to be hitmen get in the picture it goes from bad to worse. I was so tired of the recent deluge of werewolf stories, I had decided not to read anymore. Now I can't wait for the next one to come out. C T Adams and Cathy Clamp have a winner on their hands.
