Thanks to Mother Nature and the approach of a full moon, Aila Mack is a she-wolf on a mission to get laid. The messiness of a relationship or a pack doesn’t appeal to her, so Aila goes in a different direction to soothe her ache. With the help of an exclusive agency, Aila becomes a hooker once a month. She is shocked to discover that her assignment is with two clients, instead of one.

Jack and Kynan Parker are brothers who want more than a weekend romp with Aila. They want her as their mate and aren’t going to take no for an answer. Clans are desperate for cubs and Aila is a breeder. Breaking down the walls that Aila built around herself proves to be much harder than protecting her from a physical threat that’s waiting to strike. Jack and Kynan know they can make her happy, but if the men give Aila the opportunity to choose, will she make the right decision?

In A Long Howl Good Night, the next addition to the My Immortal Knight series, Kynan and Jack had a difficult time convincing Aila to stay with them. Because of her past, Aila doesn’t stay in one place very long and doesn’t become emotionally attached to men. Just because she’s a slave to her libido doesn’t mean Aila plans on letting a man control her. Jack and Kynan are as different as night and day. Kynan is an easy going shifter who would make any girl feel soft and comfortable. I loved him the moment he appeared. Jack uses a more abrasive approach with Aila. Even though he tended to piss her off much of the time, Aila couldn’t ignore the attraction she felt for Jack. The “good cop, bad cop” routine that the brothers used on Aila eventually convinced her that she could find the one thing she secretly wanted, and that was love. I tried very hard to not be annoyed by some of Jack’s comments and behavior but I never quite made it. After peeking into his mind, I did have a better understanding of Jack and his extremely dominate personality, but I still found myself migrating toward Kynan. In the end, I was touched by the family life that the three lovers settled into.

Delilah Devlin doesn’t skimp on the hot and heavy love scenes that will leave readers panting. Her characters evoke strong emotions, which always makes for a memorable story. My interest has been piqued, so I will definitely start from the beginning and check out this series.
