For years, shapeshifter Gunther West has known Judy is his mate. His little human isn't so sure. But a tragedy brings her knocking on his door seeking comfort, which Gunther is more than ready to provide. Neither can deny the sparks that fly, but are those sparks enough for forever?
This is a really short story. You are introduced to the fact that these too people have known each other for 2 years and he has known that she was his intended mate. He has apparently fought off the biological imperative until she comes to him. Now that she has he plans to make the most of it.
I really think this story needed more pages. The sex is smoking but how do you turn life affirming sex into a future? I really liked Gunther but the push me / pull you vibe from Judy was a bit off putting. That being said this is a quick hot escape that is worth the time to read.
