I'm having a hard time rating this one. This an anthology with 3 short stories about shifters.

I read it because of the T.A. Chase story, "Understanding Forgiveness".

I only read the first story in that anthology - Understanding Forgiveness from T.A. Chase :) because of second book in that series, and I liked this short prequel. I liked all the characters and I'm glad I can read the second book in this series.

There is beauty in every kind of love, so why not live a life without boundaries? Experiencing everything the world offers fascinates me and writing about the things that make each of us unique is how I share those insights.
