Received through LibraryThing Early Reviewers Group. I also purchased an e-book copy for my Kindle as part of a 2 for 1 promotion with the next in the series, Kitty Raises Hell.


Already the alpha pair of Denver's werewolf pack, Kitty and Ben now plan to tie the knot human-style by eloping to Vegas. Kitty is looking forward to sipping fru-fru drinks by the pool and doing her popular radio show on live TV, but her hotel is stocked with werewolf-hating bounty hunters. Elsewhere on the Strip an old-school magician might be wielding the real thing; the vampire community is harboring a dark secret; and the irresistible star of a suspicious animal act is determined to seduce Kitty. Sin City has never been so wild, and this werewolf has never had to fight harder to save not only her wedding, but her very life.

Kitty and Ben, now the dominant alphas of the Denver area, have decided to tie the knot and make it official human-style now as well. Despite her mother's objections, a big, expensive wedding doesn't appeal to either Kitty or Ben, so they've decided to elope to Las Vegas instead. But trouble seems to follow Kitty no matter where she runs off to, and beneath all the glitz and glamour of the Vegas strip lies a darker secret... one that will put the lives of both Kitty and Ben in grave danger.

This fourth book in the Kitty the Werewolf series is a bit lighter on the action than the previous books, but only slightly so. It focuses a bit more on Kitty and Ben's personal life and lets you see a bit deeper into that side of them, further endearing their characters to you. It may be the action which initially draws you in to this series, but it's the characters that will keep you coming back for more. Kitty and Ben rock!! :)

This book is now reserved for Gailcm, who took it from the BookObsessed Paranormal Book Box.

Could not wait to read this book and I was not disappointed. But trying to analyse why I enjoyed it is hard. Think that the character of Kitty is very engaging, and believable. Being a werewolf is not something she wanted but she is trying to make the best out of the situation. I liked the introduction of the new characters, Odysseus Grant, Evan and Brenda, all of which I would like to see again. None of the previous books seemed to have an arc to them but this one introduces a character which I can see being a big feature of future books. Cant wait to read next one.
