Synopsis

She’s been set out to the moors of Scotland to deal with a client and a curse. What she finds will not only endanger her life, but change it completely.

Thoughts

I enjoyed the werewolf theme in this story. It was fairly typical but set amongst the gorgeous moors of Scotland. I also didn’t find it all that romantic, even though it was in a romantic collection of short stories. Lucien is a werewolf, finds his mate and just turns her. There is no courting, no anything. He just recognises the woman who is supposed to be his soulmate and decides to change her entire life.

The outset of this story was incredibly promising. Written in first person, with a background of the magical law enforcement. It’s exactly the kind of voice and story that I like. Then there was the fact that they were finding their mysterious client on the moors of Scotland, and the job had something to do with curses. Completely drew me in. But then they met the man, and things just rapidly got… average. Don’t get me wrong, it was still a good story. But with such a promising beginning, I was expecting a much more intense ending.
