Blood and Chocolate by Annette Curtis KlauseThank you! It's an experiment that's doomed from the start. Vivian may look human when she chooses , but her attitudes, instincts, and expectations are decidedly wolflike; short-tempered, direct in action and emotion, rough in love and play, shapeshifters make dangerous companions, their veneer of rationality as thin as their senses are sharp. Poor Aiden--as a prospective lover he's not so different from prey; to Vivian his smile flashes like heat lightning, and at times he looks so delicious she wants to "bite the buttons off his shirt. Extrapolating brilliantly from wolf and werewolf lore, Klause creates a complex plot, fueled by politics, insanity, intrigue, sex, blood lust, and adolescent longings, and driven by a set of vividly scary creatures to a blood-curdling climax. The werewolves' taste for risky pranks and the author's knack for double--and even triple--entendres add sly undercurrents to this fierce, suspenseful chiller.

Blood in the Chocolate: OSR DnD Adventure Review
Her pack family, recently driven away from West Virginia where her father lost his life, reestablishes themselves temporarily in a Maryland suburb, where Vivian falls for a human. Aiden is kind and a little too gentle, but exactly what Vivian thinks she wants. She finds her loyalties between the pack and Aiden tested when brutal murders begin to occur, the killer clearly a werewolf. Is Vivian human or beast? And, as the book asks, which tastes sweeter—blood or chocolate? A widely popular and often banned book, Blood and Chocolate carries an interesting, not widely-seen theme: love your own kind.

Ep. 12 - Blood and Chocolate (1997, Ages 16 and up)
Blood and Chocolate is a paranormal romance novel for young adult readers by Annette Curtis Klause. It is set in the contemporary United States. In Klause's novel, the loup-garoux are a separate species from humans and wolves, but with elements of both in behavior and anatomy - referring to themselves as Homo lupus. There are two differing accounts of their origins alluded to in the book; some believe they are descended from a prehistoric breed of canine which absorbed protean matter from a meteorite which enabled them to shape-shift into humans, others that they were a tribe of ancient human hunters blessed by the moon goddess Selene. Most loup-garoux follow the latter account and thus worship Selene as their patron and mother. Loups-garoux are portrayed as glorious beasts who revel in their dual nature, but do not reveal this truth to humans at the risk of violent backlash.
