“He was a mature werewolf, experienced to the point of cynicism, but he suddenly found himself wanting to believe in fairy tales and happily ever after endings.” This is a love at first sight, or, more particularly, a mate at first sight story. I found it to be an enjoyable read with an interesting cast of characters.
Katie’s life took a bizarre turn one day and stole her from her everyday world. As she went into heat, a strange old man surprises her, trusses her up, kidnaps her, and deposits her in a strange werewolf’s territory. But not only is her life forever changed, so is Jeff’s as he faces this odd man and the female werewolf left on his doorstep. “There was no doubt in his mind. She was his mate.” If he could convince their destinies were entwined.
The characters were nicely developed as were the external and internal conflicts, especially for such a short story. That is my complaint: the story was too short. I would have enjoyed seeing the relationship and the conflicts be more drawn out.
