Before The Moon Rises (Ritter Werewolves, #1)

Before The Moon Rises (Ritter Werewolves, #1) - Catherine Bybee So many werewolves are dark, tortured and brooding (yawn) but Max is a refreshing change from all that - an intelligent, well-centered man with a sense of humor, even capable of laughing at himself.

As she demonstrated previously with Soul Mate, Ms. Bybee has a knack for squeezing a lot of character development into a short space. By the end of the story, I wanted a Max of my own. Janet didn't disappoint either, a heroine who strikes the reader as someone we might have known or met, someone who feels real and believable.

The tension, both dramatic and sexual, keep the pace moving right along and sweep you to the conclusion. While I might have liked a bit more time with the were family, I have the feeling that we might just see some of these folks again...
