Paranormal Howling Good Romance


This is a very fun story with a new look at favorite fairy tale characters, “the Big, Bad Wolf” and “Little Red Riding Hood”. The wolf is Liam MacTire, He’s a werewolf, but his family has quite the curse. If he doesn’t find his family’s sword in the next 28 days, he will stop being a werewolf and just be a plain old wolf. He goes to Granny’s Pub in Dublin, New York to see if the owner, Red, knows anything. While in the front, Red is just a bar owner and bartender. In the back, though, she has quite a lucrative business in selling stolen, magical merchandise. While Red has the sword, it is stolen again, but not before it wreaks havoc. So, Red and Liam have to go on the hunt to get the sword back and they are on a deadline.


This is a really fun and quick read. It is a story that I wish was longer for two reasons. 1) I loved the characters and wanted to spend more time with them. 2) I thought the ending was rushed and that there were things left unanswered. If nothing else, I would’ve liked to have had an epilogue. I’ve really enjoyed the two books in this series. I wish Ms. Flynn would write more of them. They are short, but complete stories. And so much fun. If you’re looking for something really fun and just want a quick read, the two books in this series are for you.

“Who’s going to fuck with a six-foot-six ripped dude in black leather pants, tats covering both arms and a perma-snarl?”

“If you don’t hear from me in a few days, send a team down here to sniff out the body.”
“What are best friends for if not to pick up your mangled remains?” Max asked.

He hadn’t been looking for forever when he’d walked into Granny’s Pub, but he’d found it anyway. He sure as hell wasn’t going to let it go now.
