New Review: Rachel's Totem

Marie Harte’s new short story, Rachel’s Totem, tells the story of a little town in the midst of no where which is the home of shifters and has been for hundreds of years. The scenery is beautiful and the story of how the town and the shifters became Cougar Falls is wonderful.

When Rachel’s aunt dies leaving her the house in Cougar Falls she decides to move there. After all having just been through a horribly messy divorce and just about losing her company she has nothing left to miss. Tired, a chip on her shoulder against men, when Rachel walks in to the diner for breakfast and sees a man arguing with the waitress the first thing she does is give him a piece of her mind. Not an hour later he’s giving her a piece of something up against a brick wall in an alleyway. She has no idea what has come over her but she knows something strange is going on. The people are all better than average good looking and it sure looked like “rough guy’s” eyes had changed.

An interesting take on the shape shifter tales, Rachel’s Totem, is a superb read. I enjoyed the characters. Burke and his brothers and their petty arguments were very realistic. The instant attraction between Rachel and Burke was enough to set off sparks. As usual Ms. Harte writes a very erotic story and not for the faint of heart, but for those of you who like your men strong, sexy and gorgeous and a heroine who can take care of herself you won’t want to miss this one.
