    Two out of three very good stories isn't bad.

    I haven't read a lot of M/M shifter stories so I was happy to pick this one up to review via NetGalley. Wolf in King's Clothing, was just plain confusing to me. It's set in York, England, 1912 but that wasn't the problem. I've read several historical M/M stories and loved them. (I highly recommend the Society of Gentlemen series by KJ Charles and The Innocent series by Victoria Sue.) I didn't want to DNF this story so I persevered until I finished it (it took me way longer than it should have to read a 32,000-word story. I will say the story got better as it went along but I just couldn't totally overcome my confusion. It's kind of strange to me because I really liked the book's blurb. The story itself seemed to be too difficult to understand; things just weren't clear for me and I didn't like that I felt confused and had to re-read portions more than once. I'm not assigning a star rating to this story. I know how hard authors work and I hate leaving a less than positive review of this story. How I react to a book can be affected by a lot of things. At another time I may have felt very differently about this story. Don't let my reaction keep you from reading this anthology. 4 stars - The Alpha's Claim was much better. Teddy, a server in a pancake house, is upset with Jim and his friends because of their crappy tipping. They day they leave him only 73 cents, after tying up his table for over 2 hours, is the last straw; he runs out of the restaurant to confront them. Jim is the Alpha of his coyote pack and they don't know that he is bi-sexual. Teddy is attracted to Jim but he doesn't know what he is and Jim isn't sure how to tell him. There's another problem – Teddy is terrified of dogs. This story had a lot of good points and made me laugh and cry a bit – always a sign that I'm enjoying a story. 5 stars - Dark Water, by debut author K. L. White, was by far my favorite story. I've never read a shifter story about Kelpies before and it was really interesting. It was also heartbreaking in places and very HOT. I guess because this is an anthology the full book blurb isn't shown on Amazon. Normally I wouldn't add the blurb to a review but this one explains the story much better than I can and I think it's worth reading: [Debut author K. L. White takes readers into the watery depths of the Celtic Otherworld in this male/male paranormal romance The magnificent Kelpies who haunt the waters, shape-shifting from horse to human, are disappearing into legend. Their numbers are dwindling, and they must take a human sacrifice twice a year to survive. So when Rez, a Kelpie stallion and former navy officer, spots a desperate man about to offer himself to the waves, Rez marks him for sacrifice. The most talented diver the navy had ever seen, Benjamin D’Arcy has always lived on the edge of death; he's a crazy kind of brave. But now he’s blind and broken, his last sight that of his best friend, Rez, blown apart by shrapnel. All Benjamin wants is to join him in death. Too late, Rez discovers that the man he so hastily marked is Benjamin—the man he loves, the man he’s crossed oceans to find. Overwhelming joy is tempered by the knowledge that their reunion must be short—the mark of sacrifice has set Benjamin's path. Facing a near-impossible obstacle, Rez must find a way to overcome the mark's power and prove to Benjamin that theirs is a love worth fighting—and living—for.] I'm a sucker for stories about veterans and this one tore me up in all the best ways. I found the writing compelling and I didn't put it down until I finished the whole story. I think it takes an extremely talented writer to construct a story with as much depth to it as this one has in only 29,000 words. I will be looking for more books by this new author. A review copy was provided by the publisher via NetGalley but this did not influence my opinion or rating of the book.
