Christine Warren’s Wolf at the Door is a fast-paced, tongue-in-cheek, witty, and plain fun to read paranormal romance. The first of what will hopefully be a series at St. Martin’s Press, those of you who have been following this author’s work will be delighted to see yet another title added to her extremely popular paranormal book list. Wolf at the Door is fully a stand-alone, it does link to previous related titles, and a couple of the secondary characters will be easily recognized by Ms. Warren’s fans. Although this book is not an outright erotic romance as her previous published work, it has all of the humor and a good deal of sexual tension and spiciness that has become Ms. Warren’s trademark. Both Quinn and Cassidy are fabulous together, and make for very attractive and appealing main characters. Quinn, in particular, is delicious, and Cassidy is a smart yet vulnerable heroine who is extremely likeable. Wolf at the Door will appeal not only to Ms. Warren’s fans but also to those who love a good lighthearted, fast-paced paranormal romance. Once more, Ms. Warren delivers, and I definitely look forward to reading future installments in this series.
