Former cop Lily Yu has her sister's wedding to attend, a missing magical staff to find, and now must deal with her grandmother's decision to return to the old country. Lily could turn to the man she's involved with for advice, but for all the passion that flares between them, she doesn't really know Rule Turner--she's just bound to him for life. Rule happens to be a werewolf, and Lily wonders just how far she can trust him.

Mortal Danger, book two in the World of the Lupi series by Eileen Wilks was full of action and adventure!

Lily Yu is going through a lot of changes since book one. She’s working for the special federal force in search of a dangerous, missing staff while adjusting to life as the mate of a lupi. She seems so sensible to me. She’s trying to take this mate thing as slow and really get to know Rule. She doesn’t want him taking over her life and independence. It’s not that she doesn’t have feelings for him, or that she’s not attracted to him. Lily just wants to make sure she knows this person who wants her moving in with him. I totally respect her character for that.

Mortal Danger takes place on two planes, and how that works totally kept me on my toes wondering how it was all going to work out. Lily is literally pulled apart here and while I was reading, I had a hard time picturing what was happening. It was a bit confusing to me, but by the end, thought the whole experience was really brilliantly done. There is somewhat of a loss, and I’m curious to see how that is going to affect Lily and Rule.

We also gain some characters that I’m excited to learn more about. I was left with an idea of whether these new characters were going to be good or on the bad side, but I won’t know for sure until hopefully the next book. They have the potential to bring a lot of fun to upcoming books.

I’m really enjoying this buddy read and I’m excited to move on to book three. Our overall arc with the staff is still open and I am interested to see how these new characters are going to play a part. Mortal Danger left Lily and Rule in a cozier place and I’m also anxious to see where these two end up!

About Eileen Wilks

Eileen Wilks’ first book, a Silhouette Desire published in 1996, hit the USA Today Bestseller List and was nominated for Romantic Times’ Best First Short Contemporary award. Since then, her books have appeared consistently on national bestseller lists. With thirty two books in print and novellas in nine anthologies, she has been a finalist in the prestigious Rita Awards three times, as well as receiving several nominations from Romantic Times, including one for Career Achievement in Series Romantic Suspense.

Each book in her World of the Lupi series gains a larger audience. It was originally sold in the Romance section of bookstores, but more and more you will be able to find copies cross-shelved under Sci-Fi and Fantasy as the popularity of the series grows!

Eileen has lived in the West Texas town of Midland, TX for over 30 years–three years as a young teen, and the remaining years since she moved back here as an adult. When she first started writing over 10 years ago, it hit her like the first drink for an alcoholic . . . or the first kiss for Romeo and Juliet.

She came to writing romance in a roundabout way. Having read and loved science fiction for years, that’s where she first tried her hand when the writing bug bit. Somehow her stories always ended up having a strong romantic subplot, but she hadn’t read a romance since the early 80’s and didn’t think “those little books” were her kind of stories. But when a friend in her critique group began working on a romance novel, Wilks decided she needed to give the genre another try. She asked her friend to recommend some titles–and quicker than you can say “Jayne Ann Krentz,” she fell in love. The genre had been busy growing up while she wasn’t watching. These days, with romances comprising over 50% of the mass market books published in the U.S., there are romances to appeal to almost every taste–historicals, paranormals and contemporaries that range from romantic suspense to romantic comedy, from inspirational to sizzling.

Eileen covered a lot of territory before coming home to Midland, having lived in Canada and Venezuela as well as twelve U.S. cities in five states.
