I liked the way the wolf portion was portrayed, as if it were separate from Darcy, and yet inside her. It was unique and intriguing. The idea of the two of them in the same body fighting for control was something new to me.
I can't wait to read more episodes from this world. The second in the series is apparently alread...more

Belinda Boring is such a tease, but of course in a good way, by introducing her novelette Without Mercy. I was gripping my kindle; with every click of the page I never wanted the short story to end. Boring did a fantastic job captivating me with her protagonist Darcy, who is a smart female werewolf that is in a pretty sticky situation.

An exciting debut by a new author to look out for!
This short novelette introduces us to Darcy, a werewolf who runs into trouble while out with her future sister in law one evening. Using violence only as a last resort, Darcy attempts to settle things peacefully but her plan unfortunately backfires and ends in tragedy. These events unleash the beast within Darcy which threatens to take over completely, putting her humanity in peril.
Darcy is an excellent protagonist...more
This is only 23ish pages long so I was doubtful as to whether Belinda could establish the characters alongside a good plot in such a small amount of pages. Without Mercy managed to do it perfectly in such a small amount of time I was left wanting more before I even got past the second page!

Darcy is my kind of girl, she would do anything to protect the people she loved and wow did she ever. I would have loved to see more of Mason, her mate and I hope we will in the future.

This story is fantastic! The first sentence grabbed me and never let go!
This is a wonderfully written piece of work. Descriptive wording, clever plot, interesting and carefully created characters, a smooth flowing storyline, and an ending that both satisfies and leaves you wanting MORE stories from the author.
I found my heart in my throat as the story unfolded before me. Who would prevail? The woman...the wolf...desire...and who would save her from herself?
A MUST read for shifter f...more
I really hope Belinda writes more about these wolves. Darcy was a very strong character and I instantly loved her when she put herself before Jasmine. Then there is also Mason, who I am dying to get to know. (So Bel if you read this pretty please write more with these character...more

The idea of having to hold back the wolf inside of you, when faced with a you-or-me situation, that was exciting and cool to read! Probably my favorite part of the story.
A really great job at introducing us to your writing Belinda! Kudos!
