"An old fashioned fairy tale with modern day monsters."

Michael, wolf by night man by day, survived a vampire slaughter of his tribe when he was young and is haunted by what happened. Even though too young to help at the time, he now hunts for vengeance. Fighting the irresistable urge to mate, he grieves and rages against his enemy and his own kind seeking the one vampire that killed his mother.

Laina, a youngest of all vampires and daughter of royal vampires, is drawn to sketch pictures of Wolfen creatures even though she's been forbidden to do it. She hates that her parents would destroy another magical tribe, so much like their own. She once dreamt that the two tribes could merge.

Can the two of them find love and safety in each others' arms? Or are they doomed?

The Wolfen Lover reads like an old fashioned Grimms Brothers fairy tale. Full of dark terrible things. But there is also light and love, and let's not forget to mention the steamy love scenes. Tessa Lane does a wonderful job of creating a different kind of vampire and werewolf. I found the short story refreshing and bold, like the fine wine she mentions in her story.
