When his partner and Captain announces that they are going to be trading there on their next jump, Teless knows it can only end badly.” And in HERE BE GARDENS, “Jaime’s been living off world when the death of an ex-lover draws him back to Earth–or does he have a different motive for leaving the herbaceous Dyson Sphere he’s called home for two years?”

Lovers of the lycan will find much to slaver over here: from the werewolf wanabee to the lovers-through-time, to waifs and strays. From the carnal to the violent to the passionate, this anthology will wag your tail, I guarantee it.”
