Punished (Crescent City Creatures Book 1) by Samantha Stone

Mary just wants to get away from her boss, but quitting her job would leave her and her sister homeless. Raphael is a criminal living with the never-ending guilt of the crimes he committed centuries ago. Punished brings them together in a romance filled with lore, laugher, and love. Samantha Stone is pleased to present Book 1 of her new paranormal romance series, Crescent City Creatures. 

Raphael Saar is an exiled werewolf, a convict on the direct path to a death sentence—for a crime he didn’t commit. He doesn’t care, so long as he can end the human trafficking ring kidnapping women across New Orleans. 

Recovering from a horrific tragedy, one particularly bad day for Mary Newman has stretched into months. A nanny for a wealthy family in New Orleans, she can’t understand why she’s being constantly humiliated by her boss until the night she learns that he’s not human—and neither is she. 

Only Raphael can save her from the monster feeding from her misery, but will Mary be able to stop his execution? 

Punished teams up werewolves, banshees, a wompus cat and a haint in order to rid New Orleans of a group of immortals determined to hurt the city’s women and kill Raphael’s pack.

My review:
There is so much to love about this book I don’t know where to start. Our hero is an honorable werewolf being punished for a crime he isn’t responsible for. Our heroine is just trying to make ends meet after her parents were killed. She quit school so she could take care of her younger sister. The cast around them each had something to add to the story and I can’t wait till they each get their story. The bad guys are horribly bad and you root for their destruction. This book is for PNR fans and not bad for fans of Urban Fantasy. I look forward to the next installment.
