“Tail Over Whiskers” by Darragha Foster
Blaze is a banished werecat. Unlike
normal shape shifters in her race, she is unable to shift at
will. The only time she is able to shift is during sexual
gratification – which in turns leads to more problems –
especially if she is having sex with a human. Blaze finds
herself needing the touch of another person and goes to a
human bar to get what she needs. There she finds Jack, a
handsome human lawyer, or so she thinks. It seems that Jack
has a few secrets of his own, the most important one being
that he is a dog. Literally.
Sparks fly in this surprising funny and
good novella. Darragha Foster kept the action going and the
eroticism sexy. Jack and Blaze are like oil and water and
their relationship was anything but easy. Hormones are
raging and love is made. Tail Over Whiskers
is a hoot!
“Earning Her Stripes” by Mima
Meg has come to Half Were House to
strive to be dutiful. She has been thrown out of her pride
for her inability to shift completely and while they don’t
respect her, Meg knows that she has to return to her
teaching position. Travelling to her pride’s town isn’t
easy for Meg but she knows that in order to have any life,
she has to first come to the grips with what she is. Asking
for shelter from women she thought were her friends, Meg is
turned down by all three. Help comes in the form of farmer
Ben Watson, a man who brings out the tiger in her.
I felt so sorry for Meg at the
beginning of this novella. She had been run out of town
because she was unable to shift but then I started seeing
how strong she was. How determined. With the help of Ben,
her true nature showed itself and I loved reading every
single word of Earning Her Stripes.
“Piece of Tail” by Celia Kyle
Daniel and Patrick are lovers. They
adore each other but they also desire Gina, a woman who
works for Patrick. Gina desires both men as well but for
one problem. She is a half shifter – and they aren’t. That
wouldn’t be so bad but the only thing that shifts on her is
her tail. It is hard enough to keep her nature hidden but
it would be near impossible to keep it hidden from Patrick
and Daniel because anytime Gina is aroused, her tail shifts
free. Will this stop Gina from taking what Patrick and
Daniel seem to be offering?
I loved Piece of Tail!
Gina’s inability to fully shift was hard for her to accept
but I found myself grinning every time her tail shifted
because most of the time it shifted on its own. Patrick and
Daniel were sexy as all get out and their attraction to Gina
is what made this sinfully erotic so enjoyable.
Half Were House is a
great anthology. Each novella brought tears of laughter to
my eyes and made me sigh in happiness for the love that
these three outcasts found with their mates. Each novella
was well written, blazing hot, and totally engaging.
Half Were House is a great anthology!
