Blurb: Being a police detective is hard. Add the complication of being a werewolf subject to human prejudice, and you might say Ray Branigan has his work cut out for him. He’s hot on the trail of a killer when he realizes he needs help.
Enter Cal Parker, the beautiful half-fairy Ray’s secretly been in love with for years—secretly, because while werewolves mate for life, fairies…don’t. Ray needs Cal’s expertise, but it isn’t easy to concentrate with his mate walking around half-naked trying to publicly seduce him. By the time Ray identifies the killer—and sorts out a few prejudices of his own—it may be too late for Cal.
Review – Book: Ray is a grumpy werewolf cop whose found his mate in Cal – the flighty half-fairy and he’s fighting it because he’s afraid of getting hurt.
In addition, there’s a paranormal mystery to solve (a murder!).
Cal and Ray dance around each other for most of the book. Their dialog is amazingly entertaining, and highly frustrating at times.
R. Cooper gives us a rich, complex world and a dense and involved tale – even though it’s a relatively short story. Ray is funny and grumpy and growly and Cal is (on the surface) just flitting about – but actually feels deeply.
There’s glitter and wings and magic … it’s a wonderful thing!
Fans of werewolves, magic, fairies and the paranormal will find a little bit of something in this to love. The romance is sweet and satisfying.
Review – Audio: Ron Herczig isn’t my favorite narrator. He has a way of ending each sentence on an up note that gets in the way of my full enjoyment. However, he does a fantastic job with voices and dialog, and I really enjoy that aspect of his story-telling.
Overall Impression: I really liked it
