Book Blurb

As a rhino shifter, Tromp knows that he’s not the sexiest beast in the world. In fact he’s clumsy and he can’t see very well, and that’s whether he’s in his human or animal form. Still, he enjoys going to the bar and watching the other shifters hooking up, especially the dancers. Then he sees a slinky kitty dancing on the little stage and he’s immediately smitten. He knows a sexy beauty like that would never go for him, but he’s happy just to watch and fantasize about what could be.

For his part, panther shifter Pepper might be gorgeous on the outside, but he knows most people see him as nothing more than a piece of meat and he’s had a hard past. There’s something in the way the big rhino shifter looks at him while he dances, though, that makes him feel special. So when his stint on the stage is over, he heads right to the rhino’s table.

Can Tromp and Pepper ignore the world’s expectations and find what they need in each other?


Book Review

Talk about “beauty” and “beast”! This story is told by the “beast”, who in this case is a rhino shifter named Tromp. Misunderstood by many, all he wants is to watch the beautiful people dance. But when he meets “beauty”, in this case panther shifter Pepper, he gets a lot more than he has ever dreamed of. In true fairy tale fashion, these men find exactly what they want in each other, and I enjoyed every minute of the ride.

Tromp only goes to the bar to watch the dancers, but on this night, he gets a lot more than he expected. Since he isn’t exactly elegant, has bad vision, and a total lack of self-esteem, that shocks him. But who can “resist a sexy kitty”, as he puts it?

Pepper has his own issues, and an equal lack of self-esteem if for different reasons than Tromp. His past still haunts him, but once he’s been together with Tromp for one night, all of that becomes less important. Tromp may be a bit of a klutz, but as far as Pepper is concerned, he has his heart in the right place and that is all that counts.

If you like fairy tales with a very happy ending, if two shifters falling in lust when they meet and in love shortly thereafter are your thing, and if you’re looking for a sweet read that is as hot as it is fun, then you will probably like this cute short story.
