Paws in the Snow

Exhausted from the waves of pain, Derick slowly packed up his backpack and tucked the bottle in the outer pocket. Zipping it up, he slung one strap over his shoulder and grabbed his coat. Carefully, he walked down the steps.

Though other students called out to him, he ignored them. Just not feeling strong enough to answer.

He leaned against the front row desks. Dropping his coat on one desk, he rubbed his fingers over his head and rubbed his neck.

Dark speckles filled his vision. Then the strange burning sensation returned to his eyes.

“Do you know what is happening to you, mon chaton?” Chevalier asked in his soft French-Canadian accent.

Lifting his head, Derick tried to blink through the speckle spots and burning. “Happening? Flu. Got flu.”

Chevalier shook his head. “Not the flu. Something special. Something that I don’t think you ever learned about, but now I can see it inside you. I can help you, but you must trust me. You will need to listen to me, follow me, and I’ll get you through what is happening.” He touched his fingers against Derick’s cheek. “Can you do that for me, mon chaton?”

“Will I feel better?”

“Oh, oui, better and stronger. That I can promise.”

His knees buckled when another wave of pain and cramps roared through his body. He groaned and collapsed.

“Oh, mon chaton, we’re running out of time,” Chevalier said when he caught him. He held Derick tight against his frame.

“Feel horrible… Help me, Professor—”

“Ben. Call me Ben.”

“Scared. Feel horrible.” Derick rested his head on Chevalier—Ben’s shoulder. He breathed in the soft fragrance of Ben’s cologne. Just the touch and smell of him comforted whatever happened deep inside him. “Don’t leave me.”

“Never, mon chaton.

Carra's Review (select stories)

Here's my review of several of the stories in the collection.  For the overall collection, I'd give it a 4-star rating.  Note this collection is meant for readers 18+ for adult language and sexual content.  Enjoy! 

Count Down by JS Bright

Everything about Colin and Landyn was just right for me.  I liked that Colin wasn’t aware of what he was, while Landyn was the opposite.  The two of them just clicked together, with the expected physical chemistry.  My only “on the fence” portion was near the end of the story with Colin’s neighbor—I would have liked to have seen more background on who he was and the whole aspect of what he was doing.  I think though that the author could use this to eventually expand this story into a longer one down the road.  3.75*

The Last Kitsune by Melissa E Costa

Oh my goodness, I just LOVED this story.  It was so sweet, yet at the same time a bit sad, but in the end left me with a huge smile on my face.  I felt so sad for Kai as he was quite lonely, but as more details emerged during Shigeru’s stay and the whole truth came out, I reveled in what the two of them found together.  Through the writing I could feel the boundless joy they both experienced once Shigeru found his true form.  I would be thrilled if the author would choose to turn this into a full-length novel just to be able to spend more time with Kai and Shigeru.  5*

By the Moonlight by Megs Pritchard

Simply put, this was HOT.  I loved the fact that Jordy had been waiting for Stone since Stone was born. I loved how protective but not overbearing Jordy was with him.  I loved how much they craved each other, even though Stone didn’t understand why.  I just loved everything about this story.  And the intimate scenes are scorching hot—even with as short a time period as the story covers, the buildup of sexual tension between Jordy and Stone before they give in is intense.  I think you can tell I just loved this story in general ;-).  5*

Prey to the Fox by Jessie G.

Everything about this story screams classic shifter to me, and that’s one of the reasons why I loved it.  The combination of rabbit and fox when they are traditionally prey and predator, the ascension of an embattled runt of the litter to a loved and important member of the community, and the absolute love between Dario and Bastian…all of this made this story into something exceedingly enjoyable.  Besides, who wouldn’t love an adorable bunny and his just as beautiful fox mate?  5*

Finding His Groove by Sara York

I really liked the matchup of Avi and Win.  They are opposites in size which is always a great match, and once he figures out how to shift, Avi’s animal is simply magnificent—and in oh so many ways.  His family certainly underestimated him after he had gone so long without ever shifting, and I thought it was justice served when he finally came into his own.  4*

Paws in the Snow by Nicole Dennis

This is a lovely story about a young man who didn’t know he was a shifter being guided into his first shift.  The story concentrates on what he feels and how he reacts and adapts, though due to the short length of time covered readers will not get much further than that into Derick’s life.  Ben, his TA from one of his classes, is great as a mentor to help guide Derick and explain everything to him.  There’s no romance initiated during this story; however, if the author decides to expand this in the future to a full-length novel this would be a solid foundation upon which to build.  4*
