Her mate has been kidnapped by a Goddess hell-bent on revenge --- but Jessica is playing for keeps.
Because she's the only female werewolf in town...it comes with its own set of rules...and powers.
Aided by two vamps, two loyal Pack members, and one very reluctant human, Jessica must rescue her man while coming to terms with what being a wolf really means.
All in a day's work for a girl.
The second novel in the Jessica McClain series is a full on action adventure featuring one angry Goddess and plenty of monsters, demons, and a few newly risen beasties...
What I liked: There is nonstop action. I love Jessica's character. She's something very special but she doesn't get caught up in her own hype. She's down to earth with a solid moral core. Her relationships with her family and friends still are a strong selling point to me. The interactions are well written and developed. Hot Blooded flowed more smoothly than the first, as it should be. The world building continues with new information provided almost at every turn.
What I didn't like: This wasn't necessarily a problem for me as I'm a patient reader but some might find Jessica's journey to rescue Rourke drawn out. There is a lot of information dumped into this novel but I can tell it's all important and needed to be there.
Overall, Hot Blooded was an excellent second novel. Ms Carlson has improved her delivery and her confidence in her writing shows. Urban Fantasy readers will certainly enjoy this series.
