Werewolves are tenacious creatures, hunting their prey -- and their lovers -- with deadly accuracy. Rarely do they miss their mark. Give that wolf a human form and he's almost invincible. Except when it comes to matters of the heart. Their lovers aren't the type to submit easily. It will take all their skills -- both human and lupine -- to get what they want. But then, they never settle for anything less...

Werelock by Dakota Cassidy
Addison Ross agrees to go on an All Hallows Eve pumpkin picking expedition to appease her niece and nephew. Hoo boy does she ever pick a winner. Beneath her pumpkin lies a talisman that brings the delish Caleb Marsden into her life. Caleb Marsden, the werelock...

The Witching Hour by Marteeka Karland

Drake, the hunky werewolf next door, has an appetite for a certain witch... and it's all for her own good. After all, who ever heard of a virgin witch?

Wolf Bound by Sierra Dafoe
When Jenna's lover strands her on a ski slope in the Canadian Rockies, an enigmatic lone wolf rescues her -- only to transform into a naked, stunningly sexy man! Now Jenna is faced with a bitter dilemma: if she stays, she'll be putting his life at risk. If she leaves, it's his heart she'll be destroying...

Rarely do you find an anthology that blends so perfectly as this collection. There is always that odd man out story that may contain similar subject matter but does not quite fit with the flow of the other authors and can leave a feeling of dissidence in the flow. However, in the Wolf Collection every story seems well chosen and complete but still leaves the wonderful taste of wanting more.

I choose to read this particular anthology because I was familiar with work by several of the authors. I was happy to be introduced to the other authors in this work. Every story was unique unto itself, flowed well, and provided a wonderfully romantic tidbit. I would have loved to see some of these stories become complete novels. Each brings a little bit of something to make it unique whether it’s the werelock, spending time in a snow locked cave with a lusty werewolf, working spells that just don't quite seem to work out right, or finding a place where you can be yourself and discover an amazing destiny; there is something for everyone.

The editing was nicely done; the stories flowed well and worked together. There were moments of tears, laughter and sighs. All in all an excellent read.
