5th sentence, 74th page: I hoped I could string my father along until I got a degree.
Reese and his family are on the run from the Australian werewolf pack. Everything is going well until he falls in love with Daniella.
The Women of the Otherworld series has introduced me again and again to the werewolves of the North American Pack and those who roam free across the country. And as much as I thoroughly enjoy this world, and these characters, it was especially enjoyable to meet a werewolf in Australia. Placing the story within a world that I am way more familiar with, and having a character who loves him family deeply just made me love this novella even more.
Chivalrous takes the best of a child’s upbringing, and his chivalrous nature and turns it on its head. Reese’s willingness to protect and care for Daniella in spite of the danger it places upon his own family and self are outdone only by his readiness to drop everything and begin a new life. It is kind of naïve, especially once the end of this story is considered, but it is also incredibly sweet. I can’t wait to read more about Reese in the next Women of the Otherworld books!
