    The Silver Kiss by Annette Curtis Klause

    This is a very good book that I highly suggest reading, she also wrote a very good werewolf book called Blood and Chocolate. Don't mind how old they are, they are very detailed and I remember pieces out of them. And Silver Kiss is'nt all as romantic as it sounds, it's got it's action and excitement as well. It's one of those books that you just have to read. :D It's very good I have lots of friends I suggested it too and loved it. I'm sure you will too.
