Another werewolf story - will it be different? Ari is a
werewolf and with her brother Justin she runs a tracking
firm which excels at search and rescue. Her wolf senses
stamina mean she can cross rough country and find anyone.
Just now however she's got the scent of a man who
her in a sexy way, and she doesn't know whether to avoid
him or hunt him down. DESPITE THE FANGS Ari manages to use
cleverly designed gadgets to keep in touch with her
brother, and Justin tells her that they have a kidnap case
on hand. Maybe it's just as well she has to leave before
she gets distracted.
Mason Grey is the hiker Ari has been scenting, and
she has to get between him and an angry bear. Matters go
from bad to worse and she wakes up injured, stitched and
naked in his cabin. He must know her secret, though she
tries to convince him otherwise.
Amusingly Ari's main complaint about being a werewolf is

other works include Despite the Ghosts. Read them if you

Just ask Aribella Lupari, whose hectic schedule tracking
missing people in the snowy Adirondacks allows her
benefits humans can't appreciate--wolves never return
unopened wedding gifts, never gain weight from late night
doughnut binges, and never worry over their encroaching
Unibrow. For Ari, walking upright is overrated.
Then she tracks a hiker whose delectable scent calls to
both halves of her werewolf self. Not only does Mason Gray
look as good as he smells, he may be the only man who can
love the beauty behind the beast. Ari should know better
than to trust a human, especially after Mason blackmails
her into tracking his kidnapped son. But her attraction
for the mysterious single father has Ari ignoring her
