Review: On The Prowl - Karen MacInerney
Sophie Garou is a master at taming her inner beast, which comes in handy since she's a werewolf. With a big promotion at work and a supersexy boyfriend, Heath (whom she recently spotted leaving a jewelry store with a beguiling ring box), she's one happy girl.
But when Heath starts spending long nights at the office with his new associate - a dead-ringer for Career Day Barbie - Sophie smells trouble. And when her professional relationship with her big new client - who also happens to be Texas's brilliantly blue-eyed most eligible bachelor - begins to sizzle, she wonders if her animal instincts are leading her in the wrong direction.
Just when it seems that things can't get any more complicated, they do. The Houston werewolf pack has sniffed Sophie out, and their message is clear: you're either with us or against us. And unless she can prove that she's with them, the next full moon may just be her last.

I really enjoyed Howling at the Moon, the first book in this trilogy and I wasn't disappointed with On the Prowl. It had all the comedy, romance & mystery of the first book and Sophie's love life has become even more complicated. I'd recommend reading the series in order but I think you could get away with reading this as a stand alone book.
This book starts a couple of months after the last book finished. Things between Sophie and her hot human boyfriend Heath have become even more complicated than they already were - he is doing a lot of overtime & seems to be a lot closer to his new colleague than he should be. He also has no idea that Sophie is a werewolf.
Sophie has just got a big promotion at work which means she is spending a lot of time working with the CEO of her new client. A client who is not only Texas's very sexy most eligible bachelor & but who is also making it quite clear that he is interested in more than a working relationship. Sophie has been told to do anything to keep her client happy but where should she draw the line?
As if 2 handsome men aren't enough to deal with there is also Tom who she is incredibly attracted to but who happens to be dating her best friend Lindsey. Should she warn Lindsey that she is dating a werewolf? And how does she manage to do that without giving herself away?
Relationship problems are the least of her worries though. She has been living in Austin for 20 years without the Houston Pack being aware of her but now she has been discovered in their territory. Sophie is summoned to a meeting with them and is told that the penalty for living in their territory without permission is death. She now has to decide if she should join their pack (starting at the very bottom), or find a way to convince them to allow her immunity. Things are certianly getting interesting for Sophie and she is going to need all the help she can get to deal with this.
