Synopsis (Goodreads):
CEO Pierce Hardwick is testing a cure for lycanthropy. Jaycee Frost, witch and executive assistant, wants to help. But she can’t risk getting too close to her irresistible boss. Ever since that one hot night they shared in the break room—the night before Jaycee realized Pierce would be her new employer—Jaycee has been struggling with her entirely unprofessional attraction toward him.

Then Jaycee receives a magical tarot card, and the message is clear: destiny has plans for her. No matter that Jaycee only wants to achieve professional domination with Hardwick Medical Research. She’s got a bigger job.

And that job might have to do with mating to Pierce Hardwick…
Thoughts on Winter Court: One thing I am IN AWE OF with the interconnected series S.M. Reine is giving us is getting to see how events played out to bring things to the point they are later in the series. Serieses? Down the line. I knew how Ofelia fit in (although not how she'd reach that point), but I couldn't figure out Jaycee. I had it in my head I'd heard her name before and it was bugging me something fierce.

Then a big thing happens late in this book and things sort of clicked in place in my head and OMG! S.M. Reine is a mad genius, my friends. A MAD GENIUS. I imagine she's steepling her fingers right now and cackling diabolically as she thinks up more mad plots and shenanigans to throw her characters into.

Mad genius.

*ahem* So. Let's take a look at this book, shall we?

Frankly, Jaycee is the very epitome of repressed at the beginning of this book. She's rebuffing Pierce's advances and trying to pretend her panties don't spontaneously combust whenever he's within eyeshot. She's judgy and close-minded and Pierce wants her anyway.

Then things get crazy. Wolves. Magic. Packs who aren't very nice. Ladies getting turned on by thinking about a biker dogpile (heh. Literally. Because, you know, they're wolves.) on top of her. And one really big thing that sets up so much awesomeness you won't get to see until later. Oh, and a lady orgy. What? Witches need love, too. More than most, it seems.

Seriously in awe, guys. Seriously.
