Since being assaulted, David must struggle to control the beast within. But the killer stalking David’s lover may leave him no choice but to embrace his dangerous nature.

Originally published in the anthology Queer Wolf edited by James E.M. Rasmussen, now the short story is offered for free on the author’s website.

My View:

Now and then, I just want to read something sweet and light, but it’s surprisingly difficult for me to find a book that doesn’t kinda become, um… trivial.

I have read so many great books by Ginn Hale and so, today, I tried one of her free short stories that you can find on her website.

It’s not only a very sweet romance, but it is suspenseful and well written.

The protagonists David and Edgar are really lovely together and generally make their lives better. It made me happy and smile to see them together.

But underlying everything is the paranormal suspense plot. Not only is there a monster on the loose, you can’t but wonder and anxiously anticipate which secrets Edgar is hiding.

It is great how these two parts of the book go so well together.

I’m quite sure the plot and characters had potential even for a longer book, but in this short format, there is neither something missing nor did I feel that there was too much. It felt balanced and I think the story was plausible concerning the romantic plot development.

Since this is a free short, I highly recommend checking it out.

    • You’re so very welcome 🙂 Don’t miss the other free short story on the website. It is also really good.

      I loved WICKED GENTLEMEN and I’m absolutely blown away by her CADELEONIAN series. It is sooooooo good, I can’t even.

      Hope you’ll enjoy 🙂
