Though he loves Minnesota, werewolf Stryke Saint-Pierre looks forward to attending a wedding in Paris.  Besides playing the tourist, Stryke hopes the city enables him to meet a female peer as his father expects him to start a new pack. 

Rhys Hawke asks Stryke to do him a favor by picking up artifacts for him at the Order of the Stake and gives him a ticket to attend a private gallery.  At the gallery, Stryke finds many socialites but none of his breed.  Still he is attracted to the owner Blyss Sauveterre who decides he is the perfect mule since he will not be in France much longer.  She plans to seduce him into giving a diamond to a demon in exchange for the elixir that conceals her inner essence.  Everything goes wrong leading to demons hunting Stryke and Blyss.

The second Saint-Pierre urban fantasy romance (see Ghost Wolf) is a stupendous suspense starring An American Werewolf in Paris and the female who turns his dreams of romantic connection into a nightmarish connection.  The metamorphosis of Blyss brings realism to the pleasurable paranormal romp as danger exponentially mounts for two shifters who, if they survive the demonic storm, have to be in love to consider wintering in Minnesota and été in Paris.
