Find Jeremy’s story in the Men of the Otherworld anthology.
Jeremy’s Asian supernatural heritage is shown in Infusion, yet, the true meaning of this and why it created the amazing werewolf Alpha wasn’t revealed until this story. The explanation of his heritage, and even why his mother was so desperate to reproduce with a man that even she found despicable finally makes sense. As does his constant drawing of runes and his uncanny ability to know when his Pack and family are in danger. Even the tattoo which Jamie decides to get at the conclusion of No Humans Involved has an unforeseen power.
I thoroughly enjoyed finding out how the relationship between Jeremy and Jamie progressed at the conclusion of No Humans Involved. They seemed such an odd couple, yet, once I finished reading their story, I couldn’t help but hope that they would get the happy ending they both so clearly desired. So, two years on from that conclusion, their happiness and ability to have a thriving relationship alongside their busy lives left such a warm, fuzzy feeling in my stomach. Jeremy’s disinterest in the Kitsune who wished to seduce him, and Jamie’s reluctant insecurity at this just furthered the feeling that all was right in their worlds. The laughing ending and trickery to this short story simply cemented this feeling of rightness to their story.
