Back Cover Blurb:

Dary, an officer with the Paranormal/Research/Intelligence/Discipline and Education (PRIDE) department of the RCMP, has little time to pursue his personal interests outside of his job. As a dominent bear shapeshifter in his prime, and a taste for slim, trim boy-toys, his preference has brought him to a crossroad—his desire to find a partner to share his life with is overcast by immature males who don’t share his interests When he learns about the 1Night Stand service and Madame Eve’s incredible track record for successful matches, he utilizes a rare weekend away from his job to indulge in some much-needed fantasy.

Rhudaii is a unique man in every imaginable way. With an unusually youthful appearance and a little known inherent bombshell of his own, he longs for a deeper connection with a man than just instant gratification. Being an avid romance junkie, Rhoo plans a getaway to a book convention in Ottawa, except surrounded by hundreds of women isn’t what he’s looking for. Instead, he arranges a date through the 1Night Stand service.

When the men meet sparks fly and the sexual tension soars. Each of them has a secret that could make or break any potential long-term relationship. But, what if they have more in common than they thought?

My Review:

Ok. There’s a large possibility that I may be drooling right now. Malcolm has created some absolutely unforgettable characters that I was able to connect with emotionally and mentally. Not to mention the fact that they are hot as sin. I love how she combined what it means to be a shifter with what it means to be living in the real world today.

Relationships aren’t easy, but when you find ‘the one’ things just seem to fall into place. That’s the general premise behind this fantastic short story. I appreciated the fact that there was a plot on top of the romantic/erotic interlude. I enjoyed the way that the characters interacted on so many levels, actually taking the time to get to know one another. I also felt as if I’d really gotten a glimpse into the lives of the characters & what they really wanted.

My final thoughts? Bears, & Dragons, & Men, oh my! I really do need to get in touch with Madame Eve myself.
