Chloe Carpenter isn't like other women. She can communicate with animals. A gift she unwrapped following one of her frequent dances with death. In her otherwise wacky life, she's finally found a semblance of sanity working at the Plum Beach Wildlife Park, where her unique talents can make life or death differences for the animals in her care. That semblance is shattered when a new veterinarian roars into the park in his spiffed up sports car and sets his golden gaze on her. If she had her way, he'd roar right back out. Problem: He's her new coworker and he's saved her life twice - in the past twenty-four hours. Zane Marshall, Enforcer for the Pacific Pack of purebred werewolves, has a job to do - figure out who or what is mutilating the young men of Plum Beach. With orders to find the woman who talks to animals, he accepts a position working alongside the fiery Chloe Carpenter, a female who ignites his interest far more than he ever expected. Remarkably, she's the one elusive female with potential to bring meaning and passion to his empty existence. Problem: She despises him. Together, they're forced to unravel a mystery of supernatural proportions, a murderous mystery with eternal implications for everyone. In the process, they discover opposites really do attract. Major Problem: Zane is pledged to another woman, and she'll do anything to keep him from Chloe.

Our customer reviews

On Chloe Carpenter�¢??s fifteenth Birthday, she was attached by a dog and knocked into a pool, nearly drowning her. The ordeal left her comatose for seven months. Upon her unexpected recovery, she gained an ability to communicate with animals and a fear of dogs. As an adult, she utilizes her gift by working at Plum Beach Wildlife Park. It is there she meets the new veterinarian, Zane Marshall. Oddly, she can hear his thoughts, and she soon discovers that he is not human. To top things off, there is a serial killer on the loose and Chloe is enlisted to help in the investigation. I really enjoyed I Kissed a Dog. The story was original and fast moving. I enjoyed the plot; it was mysterious with lots of twists. Carol Van Atta did a good job with keeping you guessing the individual�¢??s allegiances. The characters were numerous and differentiated. I like Chloe�¢??s talent for being able to talk to animals. If I could pick a super power that would be it. I really like Zane Marshall. I enjoyed Chloe and Zane�¢??s love/hate relationship. Without giving specifics to avoid a spoiler, but you might want to skip the rest of this paragraph if you haven�¢??t read the book: I was disappointed by Zane�¢??s action in Las Vegas. What he did troubled me. Chloe had every reason to be upset with him. I was happy when he was redeemed later in the novel. Not that Chloe�¢??s actions were any better, but I honestly believe she was enthralled by the vampire and had no choice in the matter. I Kissed a Dog ends in a cliff hanger that will leave you on the edge on your seat. It definitely left made me wanting to read the sequel, I Kissed a Vampire, to see what happens next.
