Ever since Blaez Dolan managed to escape Lupinia—the planet of his birth—he has pretty much done whatever he wanted to. See, Blaez is a werewolf and there aren’t many who can stand against him. Well, not and live to talk about it anyway. So, after he “takes care” of the bounty hunter sent against him, he refuels his ship and puts this little dirtwater planet behind him. When he hits a bit of turbulence, he is shocked to find a stowaway aboard. No one would ever choose to travel with him.
Rozenn Quinlan finally managed to escape from the convent of Galbrath and has managed to get to this planet by stowing away on various ships. She didn’t realize the ship she managed to hide on this time belonged to a werewolf. Even so, it doesn’t daunt her. After life in Galbrath, not much will anymore.
When the two of them end up stranded on a really weird, dark planet, they do what they have to do to survive. They stay on the ship and Blaez finds his protective instincts brought to the fore when it comes to Rozenn.
Will they be able to leave the planet? Is there redemption to be found for Blaez? Is there a chance for the two of them?
TAILWIND is an exceptional short story full of emotion. Once again, Charlotte Boyett-Compo pulls us in from the first page and doesn’t let go until the very last page. As with most of Charlotte Boyett-Compo’s books, we have a hero forced to endure more than anyone should have to go through. Our heroine as well has not lived an easy life. And we get to watch as the heroine not only tames the hero, but brings acceptance into his life. Even though a short story, it packs a powerful punch.
