The Delight

A werewolf hunter and a woman who can’t remember her past, but maybe a werewolf. This was a stunning revelation that delivered a favorite side character where they were needed.


Maggie has been a side character for several books because she was found in a lab. A lab where they experimented on her to the point she has no memories of her past. She only knows she is a wolf shifter. Luckily there is a cure for the werewolf virus the Kurjans created to make a werewolf army. Unfortunately, there is no cure for the mating virus in females for the vampires and witches.

Werewolves are usually hunted and put down. Terrent Vilks has devoted his life to protecting shifters from them. But Terrent knows all about Maggie. Where she comes from, who she is and oh, yeah, she’s his mate. Now Terrent plans to reclaim Maggie and continue to put right the errors in the werewolf world. Except Maggie isn’t putting up with any of this.

This short story sets Maggie’s world a least a little more right even if not all of her past memories will come back. Terrent is the typical alpha wolf without a pack. Maggie is his and he will do everything to protect her. Even if that means stashing her in a pack and going out to face danger. Hold up, this wouldn’t be a Dark Protector’s novel if the female wasn’t just as strong in spirit and the male. I wasn’t disappointed.

I loved how the author weaved Maggie as a clumsy wolf with a strong heart. She was fierce, but also soft. Ultimately she was not broken from her past. Terrent was also the clueless male if he thought she just stay where he put her. It had everything you expect from a short ride on the side.
