Kitty Takes a Holiday
Kitty Takes a Holiday (Book 3 in the Kitty series) by Carrie Vaughn
I actually did not finish this book. I hit the halfway point, started to lose interest and just skipped ahead and read the ending. I will probably try this one again later because i have enjoyed the rest of the series, but it just wasn't happening at this time.

After getting caught turning wolf on national television, Kitty retreats to a mountain cabin to recover and write her memoirs. But this is Kitty, so trouble is never far behind, and instead of Walden Pond, she gets Evil Dead. When werewolf hunter Cormac shows up with an injured Ben O'Farrell, Kitty's lawyer, slung over his shoulder, and a wolf-like creature with glowing red eyes starts sniffing around the cabin, Kitty wonders if any of them will get out of these woods alive...

Vegas Bites: A Werewolf Romance Anthology (Noire Allure)
Vegas Bites anthology by L. A. Banks, J. M. Jeffries, Seressia Glass, and Natalie Dunbar

This book is put out by Noire Allure and I thought it was excellent. The characters were great and the stories carried together well (except maybe the last one). It is a collection of four stories about a werewolf family that runs a casino in Vegas. All the stories deal with members of hte family (though the last story is about a cousin who you do not meet in the previous stories like the other ones). I was very much caught up in the world that they created and would like to read more from it. I really want Malcolm's story, but it has not been told yet and I do not know if it will be or not (I emailed to ask but have not gotten a reply yet). All of the stories were connected and it was nice to revisit the characters from story to story even though they were by different authors. If you enjoy good werewolf books then I think that you would like this one.

Book Description:
Vegas Bites, a werewolf anthology comprised of four romance novellas, takes place in the French Quarter casino—the only black owned, werewolf casino in Las Vegas. With a backdrop of a weeklong Texas Hold’em tournament, the full moon approaching and the retirement of the alpha couple, battles of love, loyalty, and lust abound.
Join L.A. Banks, J.M. Jeffries, Seressia Glass and Natalie Dunbar in exploring this high roller fantasy world of feuding werewolf packs, high-stakes thieves, a sexy djinn and a mystical medallion. (description from Parker Publishing website)
