The cry of the wolf echoes through the Manhattan night, unleashing a campaign of terror that stretches from Madison Avenue to the Jersey suburbs. Evil has surfaced in the form of the last Montfort werewolf, and from now on, nobody is safe until Pierre de Montfort breathes his last. Jeweler to the wealthy by day and full blown werewolf by night, Pierre ravages his turf while the city trembles. Alerted to his presence, the elite Institut Scientifique of Geneva dispatches two of its most famous hunters, Catherine Marais and Paul DuJardin, to take him down, no holds barred. Beautiful Catherine, one of the rock stars of her profession, has another, more personal reason for her trip to NYC: her vampire lover Ian Morgan, a forbidden romance that carries her to the peak of passion and the temptations of the dark side. But her lover has many secrets, and what she discovers during the campaign to vanquish the werewolf confounds everything she ever thought she knew about her seductive, passionate vampire. Will this shocking revelation destroy or only strengthen their love? PRAISE: "Ms. Morel is a wonderful storyteller. Devour kept me on the edge of my seat from page one.
