Howling at the Moon is the first book in the Tales of an Urban Werewolf series.
Sophie Garou is a half werewolf, half human who has done her best to hide her furry side and lead a normal life. She has a good job, and a handsome successful boyfriend, and things are going good until a client of her mother's dies, and her mother is arrested for murder.
While trying to investigate and prove her mother innocent of wrong doing, Sophie meets her first real, full werewolf, and feels an undeniable attraction to him. He is a bounty hunter, on site to solve a problem for the local pack (she didn't even know there was a local pack), but he's also dating her best friend, and that means hands off. Which is okay, because she loves her boyfriend, he's wonderful! But she has so many questions about life as a werewolf, since her father deserted them and she's never known him, or learned much about her heritage.
This is a fun paranormal romance, humorous and fast paced, a little bit of a chick lit feel, and Sophie's mother is quite a character. The description of Sophie as a werewolf, and what she goes through is great!
