Edited May 12th, 2015: Heat of the Moment has been removed. It will be republished on Amazon on May 22nd, 2015.
During the first part of this story I did a POV jump from the female protag to the male. I don’t normally do more than one POV in short work because keeping to one tends to keep the story more contained with less possibility of it exploding into epically-lengthed proportions. In this case it didn’t change the story much and I wanted to see the heat occurring in Reach’s point of view since he would be the one who had to be in need of all his facilities during that time.
I think it’s worth mentioning that this is the third type of shapeshifter that has put in an appearance in my stories. Both Marks of the Protector and Wounds of the Warrior had bear shifters–growlers–and For Want of a Man had a car shifter–yes, you read that right and no, she’s not a transformer.
No wolves though. Strange. It’ll happen.
Next Sunday, Oct 12th: Phoenix Fire (fantasy, short story, M/M) – Can he withstand the heat?
