Reviewette – “In Sheep’s Clothing” by Meljean Brook

Anthology: The Mammoth Book of Paranormal Romance
Story: 23 of 24
Pages: 22
Romance Featured: Werewolf
Opening Line: “Five years ago, Emma Cooper would have thought a blown tyre in the middle of a blizzard was bad.”

Emma is returning to Pine Bluffs five years after becoming the victim of a werewolf attack. She is coming back to reclaim her lost love now that she has her new life under control. Her reuniting with Nathan, now the local sheriff comes sooner rather than later when she is attacked by a serial rapist/killer who has set a trap by shooting out her tire. Calling for his assistance, she survives the attack because of her werewolf strength and healing ability.

Her plan to reveal her true nature to Nathan is advanced when she decides to use her new senses to help him catch the killer. Would what they formerly had be destroyed and lost forever by the new knowledge? Would he understand and accept or would he think her a monster? Meljean Brook blends a taut action mystery with true romance for a very engaging tale. One of my favourite stories in the collection.

  1. Hi Doug!

    I love how you're doing reviewettes of each of the stories. It's just enough to draw the reader in.

    Great reviews!

    Dottie :)

  2. I totally just quoted you on my site :-D Short stories (short anything) seem to go against my natural writing style, so I'm very glad it worked for you!

  3. Thanks Dottie, it's been fun doing this series. Now I need to be looking for the next anthology.

    Hi Meljean *g* thanks for the quote but more importantly for the story...and yes Emma and Nathan would make a great couple for a longer work.


For bloggers comments are like water to a man (or woman) wandering in the desert. A precious commodity. I love to hear from everyone and do my best to respond to every post.
