*This short story contains explicit sex. It is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
Anna Davis has accepted that her four-year battle with cancer is finally over. With only weeks to live, she makes peace with her life and makes arrangements for her death.
Twenty years ago, Anna fell in love with Conor Evans at the wrong place and in the wrong time. She’d had to make the toughest decision she’d ever faced—and let him go. Now at the end of her life, he’s offering her a chance to finally follow her heart. He has invited her to the cull—a tradition of transformation from human into a lycanosapien by “bite and blood.”
Anna has her reasons for refusing Conor, even if it means only living another month, but Conor refuses to give up on the only woman he’s ever loved—not without a fight. Anna has another tough choice—go back to her frail humanity or accept Conor’s invitation and…claim.
Anna has made her peace with dying. The cancer she has fought is about to win and she is ready to let go. All that changes with the arrival of Conor. She loved him many years ago but wouldn't leaver her unhappy marriage for him. Conor can change Anna and save her but she fights him. She has reasons for not wanting to live forever. Conor will not give up and tries his best to convince her to become a werewolf. They both love each other they just have to see if Anna is brave enough to fight to live.
This is a quick entertaining read. I liked Anna from the start. She is dying but still doesn't jump at the chance to live forever. She worries about her family and leaving them behind if she becomes a werewolf more than she worries about dying. She could have had Conor years ago but she would not cheat on her husband. Se is a very amazing person. Conor has for years tried to cure people using his werewolf blood. Anna is his mate and he just has to show her she can become one of them. They have tons of sexual sparks between them. It may be short but it is a hot, good read.
