Ever wonder what it takes to make a delicious werewolf hero? Read on to find out!
Carter Griffin (Werewolf and enforcing officer for the Seattle Wolf Pack)
So I Married a Werewolf
Start with one dominant werewolf who is used to getting what he wants.
Dark hair, cut close to the sides
Ice blue eyes
Lips designed for pleasure
Tattoos covering his golden-tan skin
Unwavering loyalty to his friends
An unquenchable thirst to claim his mate as his
While you start with the mold of “best friend”, don’t be discouraged. With a mix of determination, persistence, and tactics to make him jealous, the man will have the clawing desire to become more than friends. Throw in a dash of humor, a hint of companionship, a generous amount of teasing foreplay, and you’ll have a man who melts for you.
In So I Married a Werewolf, Faith and Carter are packmates and great friends who strike up a marriage bargain so that he can earn a promotion at work, and she can help pay for her brother’s college tuition. It’s funny how love can destroy even the most carefully thought out plans…
Hold on tight for your tantalizing sample…
“I’m…” He shoved his fingers through his hair. “I’m worried about you.”
She stepped back toward the embankment, beneath a flickering umbrella of light, and hopped up on the concrete half wall separating the walkway from a patch of grass.
“You’ve got no reason to worry about me,” she said. “I’m not yours.”
“You are mine.” He advanced, and then stopped suddenly, a look of shock flashing over his face. “For the next few months, you’re my wife.”
“But I’m not your woman or your mate.” She kicked her legs over the edge. “If I want to talk to a stranger in the bar until midnight I will, as long as it doesn’t interfere with our agreement or your chances of getting the detective position.”
The light overhead flickered to black. In the temporary dark, Faith heard the hard and true thump-thump of Carter’s heartbeat, his heavy intake and exhale of breath, and the clunk of his heel as he eliminated the space between them.
He whispered, “Let me try something.”
And in the next instant, his hand was on her cheek. She flinched, but his fingers lingered, the pads brushing against her skin in a loving caress. She couldn’t help it—the tenderness of his touch forced her eyes closed. His hand glided to the back of her neck, and he gave a little tug, scooting her to the very edge of the half wall. He stood against the concrete, his hips pressing her thighs apart.
Her breath hitched as he tilted her head up with his fingers and planted an openmouthed kiss on her neck. Sparks sizzled across her skin and warmed her from the inside out.
She shouldn’t be doing this. He didn’t want her last night.
His tongue shot out tantalizingly slow, tracing her scar from her jawline down the side of her neck. Quivering, she reached out for him and grazed her nails down his back. Then she grabbed fistfuls of his shirt and shoved him away from her.
“Are you the same person you were last night?” she asked, willing her racing heart to still.
His face was close to hers and closing in. “I am.”
“Am I the same woman?”
“I hope so.” The words were spoken from a smiling mouth—one that was going to kiss her and stop her heart in two seconds flat. God, he smelled good. Like pine and woodsmoke.
She held him at arm’s length. “I thought we were friends.”
“We are. I was thinking we could try ‘friends with benefits’ on for size.”
God, he’d probably benefit as well as he kissed.

Carter Griffin, enforcing officer for the Seattle Wolf Pack, has a problem. He’s been offered the promotion of his dreams…if he can find a wife to prove he’s over his playboy ways. But Carter’s already walked the matrimonial road and bought the stinkin’ T-shirt. Besides, a werewolf only gets one fated mate. Been there, done that.
All werewolf dog trainer Faith Hamilton wants to do is earn enough green stuff to put her younger brother through college. Okay, okay, so she also totally wants Carter, her sexy next-door neighbor, to look at her as more than a friend. It’s too bad size 12 and plain isn’t his type. At all.
The two friends strike a deal to help one another out. They must face a variety of challenges from a psycho ex-girlfriend to a Yorkie with a shoe fetish…and that pesky problem of only having one-fated mate in a lifetime. Will a relationship ruin their friendship…or spark a love neither anticipated?
