This short story is not to be missed for any fan of the Taine McKenna adventures. It features everything I love about the series, condensed into an action-packed, bite-size piece. Well, not quite everything. This takes place in a small town in France rather than a New Zealand locale, but I promise everything else is […]
A fun, quick read. The developing relationship between the characters could have been fraught and over-dramatic, but Rose balances the need for tension in the story with the realities of modern, mature adults. It’s a romance story, so you already know that there’s going to be a happily ever after. My favorite part of this […]
Disclaimer: I received a free electronic copy from the author in exchange for an honest review. I read a much earlier draft of this story, but it was just as much of a pleasure to read the final product a second time around. Bauer features the best of both worlds here: despite this being a […]

He’s kind of […]

The two following reviews are of content freely available on the author’s website as supplemental material to the Society of Gentlemen series. Neither can be read as stand-alone, but are best enjoyed following a read of the full series.
Cute story that was short and sweet. I’m not a huge fan of the “insta-love” trope in romances, but you can hand-wave it away here as a werewolf mating thing.
