Complicate The Marriage of Convenience Plot! Poll

My new novel is tentatively going to be about a werewolf marriage of convenience set during WWI (late 1914/early 1915). I'm working on the synopsis right now. You can help!!!



If you've read The Moonlight Mistress, the new book will be about the marriage of Tanneken Claes and Noel Ashby. The werewolf boys from the end of the novel will also be in it, and a new werewolf character, tentatively named Uncle Rudolf...something, who's a German and a pacifist and also hot. Given that this is an erotic novel, he pretty much has to be hot.
