Length: Short Story (<15K)

Genre: Gay, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy


An ordinary rainy day at the Bremen is interrupted when a strange courier shows up with a package for Peyton Blue, the Bremen’s much-loved owner and bartender. When the package turns out to be a piece of Peyton’s past and brings that past violently into the present, it is up to Johnnie to resolve a years old problem and put the past where it belongs once and for all.

My View:

This is the first title in the series that I read instead of listening to the audiobook. While I would love to have the entire series on audio, I couldn’t wait that long to finish the series. It isn’t very long. We revisit the Bremen and all the characters associated. We learn about more about Peyton Blue, the bartender, and finally learn a bit about how wolf packs work in this world.

It is a sweet little tale that gives us a peek into this minor character who helped change Johnnie’s life. I recommend you read it directly after Dance in the Dark. It doesn’t take overly long and you will love Ruff and Peyton.
