Confused and half starved, Tanner traveled from San Francisco to Southern Colorado in wolf form. Werewolf Stirling is amazed when he recognized the stray as the pack outcast.  Tanner was the werewolf who never learned to shift; now it seems Stirling will need to teach Tanner how to change back into a man.  

Pinyon is a wonderful short story filled with humor, a puzzle and scorching intimacy. Years ago, Tanner had accepted being different from the other pack members and lived his life as a human man. Tanner was terrified when he shifted to wolf form but his wolf instincts took over ,guiding Tanner back to his birth home.  Seeing Tanner again motivated Stirling’s wolf to claim Tanner as a mate. 

BA Tortuga’s depiction of animal behavior is so realistic it makes reading Pinyon a pleasure I want to savor again and again.
