If you have missed the pleasure of Ms. Hyacinth and Mate or Meal, then I encourage you to give them both a try. The romance is emotional, tender and spicy, while the plot is tight and builds the "Mate or Meal" shifter world beautifully. This is book two in a series about predatory wolf shifters finding mates among non-predatory shifters. Carson's friend, Shiloh, is a swan shifter who has been searching for his mate since he was a teenager. When Liam sees Shiloh, he immediately recognizes Shiloh as his mate. Unfortunately, their initial contact is only sexual in nature, causing Shiloh to mistakenly think Liam is like all the other men who only want to use Shiloh.
Liam and Shiloh slowly build a trust and relationship with each other. But just when it seems these predatory and vegetarian shifters are becoming a couple, a mysterious egg is left at their door. Can a wolf and a swan really build a family together? I really enjoyed this book. I adored the trust that Liam and Shiloh build together. Shiloh had been so hurt by others that he nearly misses seeing Liam as his mate. Liam, though, refuses to allow Shiloh doubt and emotionally pulls Shiloh to him with compassion and tenderness. This is best illustrated when the couple first makes love; Shiloh is used to men using his body for their own gratification but Liam shows Shiloh how making love is a sharing between two people.
Liam recognizes Shiloh's worth even when Shiloh doesn't and this made for a compelling story.
I also enjoyed how their emotional and sexual relationship felt like a real couple figuring out how to have jobs, pay bills, and where to live amongst their love for each other. The dialogue between the couple was honest and open and added a perfect emotional balance to their highly sexual relationship.
The author did a lot of the world building in book one so in book two readers are just reintroduced to the different shifter species. The world building here is more delicate than in book one and made for a much easier read.

I enjoy the mythos created that predatory shifters have preyed on the non-predatory ones and thus the animal groups are fractured and xenophobic. The only agency which governs all the shifters is the adoption agency for shifter children and this plays a big role in both books of the series. Of course, at heart this novella is about the romance between Liam and Shiloh but when the mysterious egg is left on their apartment steps, the couple starts becoming a family. I enjoyed this progression of both the plot where did this egg come from and Liam and Shiloh's relationship can they raise a baby together successfully.
In addition to the egg drawing Liam and Shiloh into a family, their friends and extended family morph into the community to help them raise the egg. I enjoyed revisiting Brody and Carson from book one, Shiloh's friends a squirrel and hummingbird shifter , and Liam's Alpha, Soren.
I think this community of shifters is a real strength in this book and will make me read subsequent books. It continues to build a strong animal shifter world with wonderful characters who fall in love and have charming families.
Hoping that the city will give him a better chance at finding his mate Shiloh makes a new life for himself there. After several years however the only thing his search yields is the whispered title of slut and no mate. Trusting that a change of scenery will raise his spirits Shiloh takes a bus trip to visit one of his best friends, a lamb shifter named Carson and his family. Carson is considered a bit of an oddity for mating a wolf shifter, but Shiloh can see that Brody loves Carson with all his heart.
Recently the couple adopted two little shifters as well, a lion cub and an antelope. Talk about an interesting family. The pair will weather their own ups and downs before being accepted as mates. But when an egg is dropped on their doorstep the real trouble begins. Shiloh does. The Wolf Who Hatched an Egg is a clever mixture of witty fun and sorrowful tension with a supremely satisfying end. Taking the premise that shifters live openly in the human world also adds to the normality of the twists and turns of this plotline. The dialogue is realistic, especially when Shiloh speaks hurtfully and has to make amends to Liam, who is definitely the more patient of the pair.
No one can accuse him of not trying to find his mate. Unfortunately, none of his past lovers can see beyond his pretty face and good time.

This bad mood makes him think a change of scenery might be in order. Soren is still worried about their safety after some wolves attempted to kill Brody and Carson. A lot of shifters have problems with natural enemies being mated. He finds himself lacking due to all of the frogs he kissed before he found his wolf. His view of himself leads to problems with Liam on more than one occasion. Liam has more faith in Shiloh and their relationship than Shiloh does. The Wolf Who Hatched an Egg is a very touching story. I loved that Liam never hesitated to shift into his wolf form to warm the egg and never had to be asked to do so.
Watching Liam convince Shiloh of his sincerity and his desire to be with him was also a treat. Scarlet Hyacinth wrote a beautifully touching story when she penned The Wolf Who Hatched an Egg and I highly recommend that you pick it up for yourself. Liam seemed to understand, and he simply smiled back. Liam added another finger, scissoring them gently, with exquisite care. But whatever Shiloh did, Liam still took it slow. With that, he pushed inside.
The penetration hurt, but it was also better than anything Shiloh had ever felt. Shiloh bit his lip in a futile attempt not to cry out. How could this be? How had he never known this type of pleasure? Why was it that only Liam reached a place no one had ever before?
He pulled out of Shiloh and thrust back in, a quick, hard motion that somehow still managed to be tender. Shiloh released a sob. How could he not be afraid? Liam was inside him, inside his body, his heart, and his mind. What would there be left when the man dumped him? New Releases. Definitely sweetheart. Or so werewolf Liam thinks when he meets swan shifter Shiloh.
Shiloh is everything Liam's soul yearns for, a gorgeous, feisty spitfire who turns his blood into flame and makes his entire being sing. But Shiloh is reluctant to believe in Liam's good intentions. Shiloh has been searching for The One for as long as he can remember.
