Nurse’s aide Heather Appleby thought she’d seen it all on her late-night shift at Grayslake Memorial Hospital. Nailgun accidents. Sex romps gone wrong. People inserting things in unspeakable places. Then one night, a battered, unconscious girl is carried into the E.R. – and turns into a wolf right in front of Heather. Next thing she knows, Knox Carlson, the sexy, growly beast of a deputy who’s always ignored her, is sniffing around – and staking his claim on the curvy human.
Knox Carlson is an Alpha werewolf, and the first time he scented Heather, he knew she was his with a capital H,I,S. But she’s human, so their mating can never be – until he’s called in to investigate the disappearance of a wolf shifter female who’s run out on her arranged marriage. Now that Heather has learned the secret of shifters, he’ll have to claim her as his own or let her be put down – and he’ll take on every shifter in Georgia before he lets that happen.

“Furrier Yours” Grayslake: More Than Mated Kindle World, by Georgette St. Clair.
This was a short, sweet shifter story about Heather Appleby and wolf shifter Knox Carlson. I love these quick reads because they’re easy to dive into and you know what to expect…a short sexy read, not a complex novel. Don’t misunderstand, I love the complex novel just as much but sometimes I’m in the mood for a quick bedtime read. “Furrever” gives us a bit of angst and suspense, just enough drama to keep it from being boring.
Heather is a curvy nurse’s aide at the local hospital. When she is witness to an injured woman shifting into a wolf in front of her, she finds herself in danger because of it. Heather also finds herself the object of a lot of attention from the sheriff, Knox. Knox, who she’s had a unrequited crush on for a while.
Knox has loved Heather since he first laid eyes on her but he forced himself to keep his distance because he is a shifter and she is human. There are rules in the shifter world. If a shifter mates with a human she/he is obligated and expected to keep their secret or else the consequences are death. Knox didn’t want to put Heather in that position, so to keep her safe he stayed away. However, since she witnessed a shift, Knox must claim and mark her to keep her safe and protected. There are villains and a jealous ex in this story that helps to keep the pace steady.
I liked Heather. She was courageous, loyal and even protective. Knox was also protective, possessive and sexy. He was all the things we love in a Hero.
