When worlds collide a shifter joins a warrior’s mission; anything might happen—even love. *Valentine’s Day, a shifter and a warrior *A magical romantic comedy (including a hungry dragon) *Undeniable attraction and sweet romance *Laugh out loud humor *A Lou Sylvre happy ending
On Valentine’s Day, a lonely shifter flies over the Okanogan Wilderness looking for adventure, knowing romance is the one thing he’s least likely to find out there. Imagine his surprise when he finds himself blasted from the sky only to land on a strong, handsome, and oddly calm man dressed something like a gladiator. The renowned warrior Li did not plan to spend his day trying to free his wizard employer from the clutches of a sorceress. Spells collide, and a big black bird falls on his head and turns into a fine and scantily dressed man, but he’s not sure how much help that will be. Guthrie is fond of saying, “Anything can happen.” He’s convinced that doesn’t mean romance, but is it possible he’s more right than he ever guessed?

This short story left me wondering where the book series was. So much information was packed into so few pages, that I felt certain there must be more. Not yet as far as I can tell, but this Valentine’s short certainly has the potential for more, but it was an enjoyable read as a standalone.
Li and Guthrie are two well defined characters who happen to encounter each other on Valentine’s Day. Some lovely scenery, a mishap with wizards, and a hungry dragon are all part of a quick little adventure that has a dash of romance between these two characters from different worlds.
If you are looking for a short fantasy read that inspires the imagination, I recommend sitting down with this story on a coffee or tea break. You won’t need the doughnut or scone because the story is just sweet enough.
