Queen of the Night by Elizabeth Muse
A night with the Big Bad Wolf never looked so good.

In this dark reimagining of Red Riding Hood, Francis ‘Frankie’ Baxter knows what it means to lose everything. Because once upon a time, she did. And being the oldest daughter of a mafia Don means going nowhere unguarded. Unfortunately for her, even a night out with girlfriends requires she spend time in the vicinity of her former partner-in-crime, and current nemesis, Charlie Morrow. The only man on Earth who seems to delight in pushing every single one of her buttons.

Sure, he’s handy in a fight, and yes, trouble seems to find her at every turn, but she barely tolerates him on the best of days. Not that any of it matters when a rival organization, hellbent on a hostile takeover of her father’s territory, comes for her, and she and Charlie are forced to head to the only place no one is brave enough to attack: her grandmother’s house.

Five days. An impromptu road trip. Sexual tension so blistering it threatens to scar whoever makes the first move. And it all adds up to a recipe for disaster tastier than anything her Nona could whip up in the kitchen. And with Frankie on her own mission to get to the bottom of what went wrong with her and Charlie all those years ago, it’s a shock to approximately no one that the truth comes pouring out. But unlocking the vault of whispered conversations and previously classified family lore isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Not when her best friend, turned enemy, turned almost lover, is a werewolf who’s been keeping her at arm’s length for her own safety.

Of course, when she ends up behind enemy lines, Charlie realizes he’ll burn the whole world down to save her. Absolutely nothing is off the table.

Not even becoming the big bad wolf.
