Review: Winterblaze by Kristen Callihan

Synopsis: Poppy Lane is keeping secrets. Her powerful gift has earned her membership in the Society for the Suppression of Supernaturals, but she must keep both her ability and her alliance with the Society from her husband, Winston. Yet when Winston is brutally attacked by a werewolf, Poppy's secrets are revealed, leaving Winston's trust in her as broken as his body. Now Poppy will do anything to win back his affections. Winston Lane soon regains his physical strength but his face and heart still bear the scars of the vicious attack. Drawn into the darkest depths of London, Winston must fight an evil demon that wants to take away the last hope of reconciliation with his wife. As a former police inspector, Winston has intelligence and logic on his side. But it will take the strength of Poppy's love for him to defeat the forces that threaten to tear them apart.

Review: I enjoyed this story more then the others. The mystery was interesting and I was mostly convinced of their characters love - although they spent as much time as ever lusting over each other instead of loving. The big "twist" was cliched, sadly, and fell pray to the usually "must make it very dramatic" nonsense that makes me eschew modern television. However, I did enjoy watching the main characters resort their relationship and the defeat of the villain was clever. Not a bad read, if you like this sort of thing.

Prude Notes: The same - graphic sex that can be skipped if you are careful. I did and lost nothing from the story.
