Dr. Malak Shahzed moved to the small town of Goodfields for a quiet practice and a chance to leave his other life behind. Finding kind and handsome Sheriff Shiloh Payne is a bonus. Their relationship is mostly stolen glances and innocent meetings, but Malak wants to play doctor with Shiloh—if the sheriff feels the same.

All is not well in Goodfields. After each PTA meeting, the body of a single man is found torn apart by a wild animal, and the town is getting nervous.

Murder is complicating Malak’s seduction of Shiloh, especially since he knows more than he is willing to admit. Because sane people don’t believe in werewolves…. Do they?


Okay. So this one didn’t work for me and I am bummed at that. Maybe it’s my fault for thinking the title would involve more of a cute scenario with the whole PTA deal and schools and… yeah, I really thought that would be in the book but it wasn’t and now I’m totes confused.

So, Malak is a doctor and something else but we don’t know what. We know he likes the Sheriff, aka Shiloh, of the small town he has moved to for a change… why the change and what he is looking for again, we don’t know but it’s hinted at A LOT. We also know there is a string of murders that seem to be related and seem to be of more animal based than human and so there must be shifters about somewhere, right?

Before I get too into the story, I do want to say I liked the take on the differences between what a Were  was and what a Shifter is. The explanation was detailed so that I got it and that I liked the line drawn between the two. Now having said that, it was about the only thing that was detailed, organized and made sense through the book.

I am not going to go into what I didn’t work for me as this is a short story… sigh. This had a so much potential to be really good and interesting but it really fell flat. I wish Shiloh had stayed with the shy personality we got in the beginning instead of the sex machine we get later. Had we learned more about Malak and what Faysal were and maybe just … I wish Malak would have not played the ‘I’m not what you think I am card’ less and crap, I don’t know.

This had again, potential to be a great story had it been longer, maybe? Ugh.

About Felicitas Ivey

Felicitas Ivey is the pen name of a very frazzled helpdesk drone at a Boston-area university. She’s an eternal student even with a BA in anthropology and history, since free classes are part of the benefits. She’s taken courses on gothic architecture, premodern Japanese literature, and witchcraft, just because they sounded like fun. She has traveled to Japan and Europe and hopes to return to both in the future.

She knits and cross-stitches avidly, much to the disgust of her cat, Smaugu, who wants her undivided attention. He’s also peeved that she spends so much time writing instead of petting him. She writes urban fantasy and horror of a Lovecraftian nature, monsters beyond space and time that think that humans are the tastiest things in the multiverse.

Felicitas lives in Boston with her beloved husband, known to all as The Husband, and the aforementioned cat, whom the husband swears is a demon, even though it’s his fault that they have the cat. The husband also is worried about Felicitas’s anime habit, her love for J-Pop music, and her extensive collection of Yaoi manga and Gundam Wing doujinshi, which has turned her library into a Very Scary Place for him.
