Blood and Chocolate

By Annette Curtis Klause

Many supernatural romances pair ordinary girls with otherworldly boys. Not so in Blood and Chocolate, a sensually-written young adult novel about Vivian, a 16-year-old coming of age as a young woman and a werewolf. 

Vivian is as wild, passionate, and angry as any other teen girl, but her angst quadruples when she falls for human Aiden, who has no idea she’s a werewolf. Originally published in the late 90s, this novel was the basis for a film of the same name. The 2007 movie stars Agnes Bruckner as Vivian, Hugh Dancy as Aiden, and Olivier Martinez as Vivian’s older wolfish love interest and pack alpha.
