Sullivan Quinn didn't travel 3,000 miles from his native Ireland and his wolf pack just to chase rabidly after the most delectable quarry he's ever seen.
Quinn is in America on a mission - to warn his Other brethren of a shadowy group willing to use murder and mayhem to bring them down.
But one whiff of this Foxwoman's delicious honeysuckle fragrance and he knows that she is more than a colleague or a conquest...she is his mate.
Anthropologist Cassidy Poe is a world-renowned authority on social interaction, but the overpowering desire she feels around Quinn defies every ounce of her expertise.
Working by his side to uncover The Others' enemies poses risks she never expected - to her own safety, to those she loves, and to her heart, as every encounter with Quinn proves more blissfully erotic than the last...Now, with no one to trust but each other, Quinn and Cassidy face a foe that's edging closer every day, threatening to destroy the life they've always known, and the passion they've just discovered...

Review by jjmcgaffey
First book in the Others series. I like the world better than the stories - the sex is very explicit which I find less interesting, and the obstacles (some of them, the immovable ones) are either ignored or deus-ex-machina dealt with. A human marrying an immortal, especially when the immortal is explicitly said to mate 'for life' - there are problems there that can't be easily solved, but the author just skates over them (either the human's life is automatically extended, or the immortal says (to himself, not his mate) that he'll die along with her (gender distribution correct for these two books (first and third)). Fluffy.). But the world is great - urban fantasy with hidden Others, the first book they decide to unveil, in the second they're in negotiations, in the third book they've just unveiled and humans are dealing (badly) with these facts. I'd really like to see some non-romance books set in this universe - honestly, there's some good stories in here somewhat obscured by two peoples' sudden obsession with each other. Oh yeah, and they definitely illustrate the First Law of Romance: if the sex is fantastic, it's true love which will overcome all obstacles. If it's not so good, it's with the wrong partner. Pffff.
Review by BookWhisperer
Quinn is from an Ireland Pack, he was brought to America to attend a meeting of the others. To make a decision as to whether it is essential for their world to be unveiled. He had it all mapped out except for the part including a fox woman named Cassidy Poe. They find that they are already under attack from a religious group, and obstacles of whom to trust. Now trusting only either other, and their attraction brewing they must handle their mystery group, before they find them first.

not my favorite...storyline started off really slow but it slowly builds.....Her characters are fun, and funny, and real people...was happy the lead character didn't have brogue.
Review by AngelLocke
I rather enjoyed this book. It was my first Christine Warren and I was pleasantly surprised. It was an easy read and moved quickly. Of late most of the books that I've delved into have been a lot of sex with a little story. This one was more story with just a touch of steam. The story was good and I'm looking forward to She's No Faerie Princess, that I'm starting right now.
Review by LadyIsis
I loved this author when she was writing for Ellora's Cave. Her books are funny and steming hot. She provides a good plot that is well written and pretty error free. I love her characters and their interaction with each other. This is the first book she has written for a NYC publisher and it lives up to the books she has previously written. There is also a good mystery and a plot twist that will probably play out in future books. I highly recommend this author.
