Henry Dalton is sent across the country by train to the western town of Woolridge in order to investigate the werewolf problem they’re having during the monthly moon cycle. The townsfolk are not forthcoming with information, making it difficult for Henry to solve the case.
Even more distracting is Jack, a handsome older lycanthrope. Known for his rebellious youth, Jack has settled down into life and routine in Woolridge, working as the local blacksmith. He assures Henry he’s no longer trying to stir up trouble, that those days are long gone. Henry must attempt to ignore the spark between them, the indication of their potential to become mates, which is rare because Henry is human. Henry remains professional and focuses on his job, but each meeting with Jack adds to the draw, and Henry isn’t sure how much longer he’ll be able to resist.
A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2015 Daily Dose package “Never Too Late.”
A – curl up with a hot chocolate, before bed – read.
Henry Dalton investigates problems with werewolves for a goverment department. He is a mild mannered polite man who has only good intentions towards the werewolf community. When he is called in to investigate a possible unregistered or rogue werewolf in the mid-west of America – he is met with distrust and suspicion. This is except for a flirty barman and Jack, who collects him from the railway station. There is a spark between them – literally.
Henry and Jack are both pleasant characters, and the whole novella is a pleasant cosy read. There are some nice touches of steampunk inventions and atmosphere. As with many novellas the ending is a little predictable and hurried, but a nice addition to the Daily Dose collection from Dreamspinner.
