All through school, Xavier and Lauryn had been best friends. He had been there for her when her sister was almost kidnapped, and yet when he tried to kiss her and make it something more, she pushed him away. She was afraid he would hold her back from becoming what she wanted, someone with enough money and power to always take care of her family. So Xavier headed off for ten years in the military, which left him extremely muscled and a werewolf. Now he's back and he wants Lauryn.
The Boy Who Came Back A Wolf is a short little novella that introduces Lauryn and Xavier in the Space Shifter Chronicles series. Kara Lockharte has written a sizzling paranormal romance story encompassing the dreams and fantasies of most mid-twenties-ish women. This story may introduce Xavier and Lauryn or it may fill in some background about them. Either way, it is a very short, maybe five chapter book that, although was fun to read on its own, was definitely meant to fill in some information between two regular novels. This novella mentions Lauryn's sister, Skye, and her father, a space pirate. Kara Lockharte has taken a short novella and given readers an intriguing look into a series that teases readers and gets them wanting to read and find out more about the series.
