Of Wolves and Men

Charlie Mosby is a foreman on a horse ranch; lately he has become confused about his sexuality. He has been straight all his life. Then one day after getting a flat tire a young man stops to help him and Charlie receives his first blowjob from a man.

Now not only dealing with his confusion he has to deal with problems on the ranch. A fence is cut and a deer was slaughtered by what looks like some sort of cult. There is also a wolf/crow/man that keeps popping up asking for his help and Charlie is very turned on by the man.

Roman Burk is an FBI agent. He was in the middle of a raid when he was kidnapped by someone or something. Now he keeps turning into a wolf or a crow and not having any control over it. He needs help, and he turns to Charlie for it.

I'm not sure how I really feel about this book. G.A. Hauser is a wonderful author and I usually love her stories...but this one left me VERY confused and asking so many questions but not being able to find them hidden in this story.

If it were not for the fact that I had committed myself to reviewing this book and for the fact it was G.A. Hauser who wrote it I would have put this book down after the first few chapters. I'm not sure if I will be reading any sequel to this story.

Book Blurb for Of Wolves and Men

'Cowboy' Charlie Mosby worked on a horse ranch in Heber, Utah. He loved his work, the owners of the ranch, and his co-workers; wranglers who helped tourists with guided horse tours and trail riding all year round.

But after a chance meeting with a handsome gay man who had helped Charlie change a flat tire on Interstate 80 a month ago, Charlie was beginning to wonder about his sexuality. And if that wasn't confusing enough, strange things were happening on the ranch.

Satanic worship? A strange cult ritual? Whatever it was, it wasn't good for the owners or the horses on it.

One night Charlie stumbles upon Roman Burk in the woods, naked, bleeding and shivering in the cold. What Charlie never imagined was who -or what- Roman was. Even though the handsome stranger seemed to vanish at times and reappear as if by magic, Charlie was infatuated by this man.

Roman was fearful of revealing his secret. Most of all to a cowboy who was spending more time hunting him, than loving him.

In this shape-shifting story of sexual bonding and discovery, can both Charlie and Roman find what they're looking for? It's a question of honor; one that has been up for debate since the first time man set his eyes on this formidable predator. It's about the mutual respect of Wolves and Men.
