Book Blurb

Cade Avery is running for a position on his local county council. He’s extremely good at what he does and is a valuable asset to his community. The trouble is, he upsets people, says the wrong things, and rides rough-shod over other people’s plans and ideas. His assistant, Mary, eager to improve Cade’s public image, hires him a campaign manager.

 

Quentin Rayworth is thrilled to be working with such a formidable public figure. It’ll be a challenge, but he’s confident he can help Cade to win the election, and knows that the achievement will look impressive on his CV.

 

It’s soon clear that the two men are set to be an excellent team. That is, until Cade’s werewolf makes its intentions known—in Quentin, it has found its mate, and it will not rest until he has claimed him. But can Cade—and his wolf—win over the campaign manager?

 

Book Review

Two men who get together out of entirely selfish reasons, one of them a werewolf running for office and the other an ambitious campaign manager, sounded like an excellent potential source of conflict, interpersonal sparks, and potential heat to me. And let me tell you – ‘Winning the Campaign Manager’ did not disappoint.

Cade is a tough guy – wait, that may have something to do with the fact that he is a werewolf. True to his heritage, he is direct. Blunt, and doesn’t really care all that much what others think. He knows what’s right – and they better get behind him if they know what’s good for them. This actually sounds worse than it is – Cade does have a heart of gold and wants to do the right thing for his community, ahem, pack – but qualifications like these are not usually part of the description of a politician. Hence, the campaign manager hired by Cade’s well-meaning assistant, for the purpose of image improvement.

Quentin is nervous, close to terrified even, to be working with someone of Cade’s caliber – and impressive physical presence. Quentin is good at figuring out what people need to do to be liked, but he knows that he has his work cut out for him not just from seeing Cade on TV, but even more so from the moment he meets Cade in person. “Shaking in his boots” with nerves is an exaggeration, but not by much. Quentin goes from terrified to almost melting with lust -while still being terrified – within seconds of the first meeting, and it gets worse from there.

Cade starts out wanting to win the race for public office but very quickly adds another objective – win the campaign manager, as in “convince” him to become his mate. Quentin starts out wanting a formidable public figure as a client on his resume but very quickly discovers that Cade is a great guy and they work together really well. Professionally that is. The personal side takes a little more time – not much -  and I enjoyed every second of it. These guys are not just a hoot when they get together, they very quickly discover there is incendiary heat and loads of passion between them on a most intimate level.

If you like your romances hot and lightning-quick, if you enjoy shifter stories with a heavy serving of humor on top of an entertaining plot, and if you’re looking for a read that goes from funny to hilarious, and from hot to scorching, then you will probably like this novella as much as I do. I think it’s extremely amusing and the characters’ shenanigans made me laugh out loud more than once.
