summary from Goodreads
Love at first woof.
When Denver-based Were blogger and founder of Honoring of Werewolf Legacy (HOWL) Kate Stillman agrees to take on political “bad boy” Duncan MacDowell in a public debate about werewolf segregation, she’s confident she'll sail through the challenge without letting down her guard.
And what can go wrong while hanging out with the sexy Scottish founder of Werewolves Optimizing Our Future (WOOF) long enough to convince him his views on interspecies mating are mistaken? Plenty, when Kate discovers that she’s actually wildly attracted to her opponent—who by all accounts prefers dating human women!
But what hope can there be when this irresistible werewolf-with-a-cause believes their future depends on Kate losing the argument?
Duncan MacDowell, founder of Werewolf Optimizing Our Future (WOOF), has spent the last year trading banter back and forth with Kate Stillman, the founder of Honoring Our Werewolf Legacy (HOWL) and is very excited to finally meet the woman with the snarky mouth. DUncan and Kate are on completely opposite sides of the fence on a lot of werewolf issues and those issues will be front and center at the first werewolf convention Werecon 2012. Duncan believes werewolves should come out to humans and mate with humans while Kate believes that they should stay a secret and only mate with other weres and neither one is ready to change their minds but neither one expected to fall for the person they are supposed to hate.
Werewolf in Denver was so much better than book three, Werewolf in Seattle but still had some of the corny aspects that drove me crazy. I would call this series a contemporary with a little bit of paranormal mixed in and it’s a very cute contemporary. Sometimes the couples get too cute for me and I do find myself rolling my eyes at times but it occurred a lot less in this installment than in previous ones.
I loved Duncan and he made the book for me. I mean how can you not love a scottish werewolf who wears a kilt?? Katie I liked but she got on my nerves towards the end and her lack of faith in Duncan drove me crazy. I did enjoy the great banter between the two which provided a lot of laughs. I didn’t enjoy the updates/text messages by the reporter at the beginning of each chapter. I thought they ruined the flow of the book and I could have lived without them.
After reading Werewolf in Denver and liking it so much I have decided to continue on with the series. This was the last chance and it got my attention again and I can’t wait to see what happens with Jake Hunter in Werewolf in Alaska. I hope the next book is just as good as this one and I am excited to see what happens next in the werewolf community.
