Nash Hudson is on a big job.

Bodyguard by day, and werewolf by night, he is climbing the ranks in his Pack. All he has to do is protect his clients and build his leadership in his Pack, and his life is set.

But one chance meeting with a woman on a job has him making decisions he would’ve never made before. His wolf is on the fritz and pushing for things that will bring severe punishment from his Pack. Summer is gorgeous. Great smile, curves in all the right places, funny, and interesting in every way–she absolutely has his attention.

Summer is so many things, but she’s also going through something she is hiding from her friends, and the only one who can set her life on a new path is Nash.

They’re strangers, but she sure feels important, and now Nash must decide if helping Summer is worth the risk of punishment from his Pack…or if he’s throwing both of their lives away.

My Rating:  4.5

His Curse to Give is the first story in the Wolves to Be series (all short HFN stories).  While the story itself is wickedly short, there’s still a powerful punch of a story involved here as Summer is facing the realization of a devastating medical condition… and Nash is stepping in where perhaps he shouldn’t have.  All he knows is that this woman calls to him, and while what he’s planning to do is frowned upon by the Pack, he’s not going to risk losing this woman who sure feels like his mate.  Pack rules be damned.

Summer and Nash’s story is steamy, funny, wicked ironic in some ways, and facing reality in others.  They might have been strangers meeting in the oddest way, but they fit, and once Nash completes his plan, well, there’s no turning back for either of them.  I adored Summer; she’s facing her reality in a way that makes sense for her.  And her reactions to her new life were so “out there” that they were both funny and desperate to understand at the same time.

His Curse to Give hands us an intriguing beginning that simply begs to be followed up in the next installment, What He Is Now.  If you love Paranormal Romance or Shifter Romance, don’t mind a Happy For Now (HFN) ending that will lead to more, and can appreciate a story being delivered in its most important details only… then you’ll love this Shorts series, Wolves to Be.
