I enjoy a good paranormal romance novel, but I just couldn't get into this one. It wasn't the s&m that really put me off, but more that I felt the story was written solely for the purpose of introducing the dom/sub sex scenes. It's all concentrated around a club where people can go to act out their dom/sub fantasies. While this is great, why ever would these two people need to agree to have that sort of relationship to investigate a newspaper article/murder? It was a very weak premise that could have been pulled off much better. Mostly PWP, with not very good "p". It wasn't a total loss as it got me through a few cardio workouts, but if I hadn't been stuck with the book as my only entertainment, I don't think I would have finished it. ( )

His gifts help him uncover the hot stories. But his latest investigation will take him inside a sinister world of power and pleasure, alongside a woman who knows how to bring out the animal in him...

Lance Marshall has a nose for great news stories. It's not surprising, since his werewolf abilities allow him to move with greater speed and stealth than any human. Now he's on the prowl outside an ultra-exclusive Washington, D.C., nightclub--'The Castle'--a heavily protected building within a forested park. But he is not alone. There is someone else in the woods who wants to get inside the secretive club.

Savannah Carpenter's sister lies in a coma--and Savannah knows that the mysterious goings-on in the Castle have something to do with it. Her wild sister had visited the club several times to partake in some erotic--and dangerous--fun and games, and Savannah wants answers. To get them, she joins forces with Lance, and the two pretend to be lovers to gain entrance.

But the raw passion that arises between them is anything but an act. And the closer they get to each other, the closer they get to uncovering the truth--and the monstrous evil that lies in the heart of the Castle... ( )

Lance Marshall and Savannah Carpenter first meet outside a sex club in D.C., although Savannah doesn't realize it. Savannah is an artist who was looking for information about her sister who's in a coma after what the police tell her was an accidental fall from a cliff. She's caught by the security guards, but rescued by Lance... in wolf form.

Lance is a werewolf, and an investigative reporter. He's heard some stories about the club and is checking it out to write an exposé.

Turns out the basement of the club houses a portal to another dimension, and a being from that dimension that feeds on and affects human emotions, which makes the club such a success--it influences them to act on their deepest, darkest desires.

With the help of a client and an employee of the club, and several members of the Marshall clan, they solve the mystery and save themselves, and fall in love along the way.

I'm always impressed with the variety Rebecca York brings to this series. Lance's career as an investigative reporter is a good example--it's a natural choice for a werewolf, but not one you see all that often.

The existence of other dimensions has already been introduced in this series, back in Edge of the Moon, so it comes as no surprise, though this dimension is different from the previous one... or at least the creature is different. There's an intriguing peek at life inside that dimension, and a woman, Rinna, who hunts those creatures. I'm hoping assured that she'll be featured in a future story. ( )
