Marty Andrews sells Bobbie-Sue Cosmetics for a living and is determined to make it in this business. She’s already reached Lavender Status so she’s almost there. One night while out with her teacup poodle, she gets bitten by what she thought was just another dog. But when Marty’s hair changes color, her legs become extremely hairy, and she starts craving meat when she’s a vegetarian, she starts to suspect something is wrong.
A gorgeous man named Keegan Flaherty shows up at Marty’s door with some disturbing news for her. He claims to be the dog that bit her, well not a dog, he’s a werewolf! So this means Marty Andrews is a werewolf too now. Marty refuses to believe Keegan and just writes him off as another crazy person. Keegan gives Marty his cell phone number because he knows she will need him when she realizes she is a werewolf.
Shortly after, Marty is kidnapped and thrown into the trunk of a car. While trying to fight her way out, she sprouts a tail! There is no denying she is a werewolf now plus someone is out to get her! Keegan comes to the rescue and whisks Marty away to protect her from her kidnappers.
Who would want to hurt Marty Andrews? How will she work for Bobbie-Sue Cosmetics when she is turning into a full grown werewolf? Can she just hide her tail and go back to life as it was before Keegan? Or will Keegan bring something new and exciting to Marty’s life, perhaps love?
THE ACCIDENTAL WEREWOLF is a chick lit paranormal romance that I found hard to put down! Marty’s antics are funny and you can’t help but feel for this woman who just wants to fit in amongst her peers, tail or no tail!
THE ACCIDENTAL WEREWOLF is the first book in a new series and I look forward to reading the next book Accidentally Dead due out in July 2008. Dakota Cassidy is a great new addition to the paranormal genre and I will definitely be reading her next book.
