A Doves Wing by Katya Harris
Series: 2016 Daily Dose Delivery Package – A Walk on the Wild Side
Release Date: June 5, 2016
Pages: 55 • Format: eARC
Published By: Dreamspinner Press
When his nephew shoots a dove with a BB gun, veterinarian Abel March promises the remorseful boy that he will take care of the bird and its broken wing. He doesn’t count on the dove changing into a (very naked) man in the middle of the night.
The shapeshifter’s name is Darcy and his clan has just moved into the area, much to the dismay of some of the residents who hold prejudices against their kind.
Sweet and sometimes sassy, Darcy is the first man Abel has felt connected to for a long time. He wants to keep him safe, and when someone threatens him, Abel reacts with unusual ferocity. He’s falling in love with Darcy, but when circumstances separate them, he’s left not knowing if the sentiment is returned.
The answer to that question will change both of their lives forever.
Never read a dove shifter before and I gotta say I’ve enjoyed it. So far Dreamspinner is doing well with the different types of shapeshifters they are featuring. I really enjoyed the opening sequence where the nephew has all this guilt for shooting the dove with a b.b. gun. It definitely pulled on your heart-strings and then to get the whimpering from the dove. I thought the author did a good job with the pacing and the tone of the novella. What I enjoy most from PNR stories and especially shifters are the ability to know when that special someone is your mate. Darcy was adorable as a Dove shifter and I loved the protectiveness Abel had over him. The plot was okay, I would have been okay without the town being in uproar over the shifters moving closer. I would have like to see multiple kinds of shifters in the story but was happy with the finished product.
