Description from the publisher:
A Moon Pack Short Story
Part of The Pack Rules Werewolf Romance World

Moon Pack Beta Matthew Canton, who co-owns Techno Inc. with his best friend (and the recently mated Moon Pack alpha), receives a can't-miss opportunity: a chance to woo the beautifully curvaceous Kammie Desmond. All he has to do is be her assistant for a Caribbean research trip.

Kammie writes historical romance novels, including the Pirate Prince series. Though the rare female shifter still lives in Moon Pack territory, she spends a lot of time traveling. Kammie has been on Matt's radar since he hit puberty.

He knows Kammie is avoiding him, relationships, and men. But that doesn't mean he'll give up on the only woman he's ever truly wanted. And if he has to become a werewolf pirate and seduce his lady ...well, that's exactly what Matt will do. Ahoy, love!
This is a short-story companion in the Moon Pack Rules series.  I have not read any other books in this series, and found it to stand on its own just fine.

  Historical romance novelist, Kammie Desmond is a rarity
among her people – a female werewolf.  The Moon Pack’s Beta, Matthew Canton, has power, money, and his eye set on Kammie.  She has sworn to remain single, hiding her secrets to herself.  Matthew has his own determination and a little help from her brother.  As an author, Kammie is visiting a Caribbean island, researching her next romance novel of pirates.  Matthew signs them up for the Pirates Pursuit – a local role-playing event. Whose resolve will prevail?

It is no news flash for me to say that I love paranormal romance – fairies, witches, gods, angels, shifters are all among my favorites.  What you may not know is that my first romance reads, back when I was a teenager in the late 70s/early 80s, were the old bodice-rippers. Fabio graced most of the covers (YUM!) and there were a lot of pirates.  So, when asked if I would want to read about a werewolf pirate?  The only answer I could give was, “Yes, Please!”  I was not disappointed.  Now, I want to collect and read the rest of the series!

I have fallen in love with Matthew and was rooting for him the whole way through the book.  Of course, I was rooting for him.  He wasn’t the one fighting his own feelings.  Kammie is not a bitch.  She has a big secret that she is sure would end his feelings for her, but doesn’t want it to be public knowledge.  She thinks it will be easier to just deny him completely then to even allow that little bit of herself to be put on the line.  I loved his response when, in desperation to end his pursuit, she blurts the one thing that she believes will damn their relationship.  I could hear the hearts and flowers music in my head immediately.  That’s really all any woman wants – to be accepted exactly as she is … and he does!

More, more, more…. I’m heading to Facebook to find Michele Bardsley and see what may be new and coming soon.
