The Werewolf's Kiss is the first book in "The Werewolf Trilogy," a ground-breaking trilogy that follows the history of a clan of werewolves centered around New Orleans. This is the story of Sylvie Marley, a rare creature drawn to the Moon and the night with the urge to run wild in the bayous. She is also in love with the young, handsome werewolf Lucien Drago, son of the Duchess de Marais. She too could be a werewolf if she chose, called as she is by the spirit of the Moon and the family's werewolf curse. Although her father, Andrew Marley managed to lift the curse, Sylvie still has the choice between the life she craves as a werewolf and the life of a normal young woman. However, that choice may be taken from her by a madman seeking power as the new king of the Voodoos. To prove himself, he intends to force Sylvie to become a werewolf with his magic, thereby sealing her fate, and her life, unless he is stopped.
