Taking a short break from touring around the world Derek and his closest friend Lisa set out to snowy Mount Triffle. Their hasty departure proves to be fruitful when they find a cheerful welcome in a local club. They link up with a jazz band and the lead, Troy, invites them into their home. Derek soon finds out that there is deeply felt affection growing for the mysterious one named Jordan.
Jordan has a quiet, sinister nature about him that peaks Derek’s interest. In a wave of unseen emotions, they follow each other without being aware, while exploring the formidable landscape of the mountain. When Jordan finally reveals himself to Derek, the dread of discovering a hidden monster is short-lived. Derek wants to help the tormented werewolf, and keeping him close genuinely seems to him to be worthwhile.
This story really did not hit the mark for me. Derek is visiting with his friend and meets Jordan. Jordan warns Derek off but doesn’t stay away and soon Derek is involved in Jordan’s problem.
I could not connect with the characters in this story and also did not like the sex scene, they were completely unrealistic for male-male pairings. There were also many time jumps that I lost what was going on and the end of the story was left open and the “sinister” plot was quickly resolved without any real conflict. At least it was short so I didn’t feel like I wasted a lot of time.
The cover art by Martine Jardin is okay though you only ever see Jordan as a wolf for a few seconds.
