Recommendation: A simple and straight-forward plot with no sudden surprises, very predictable.
Professor Jenny Rose - a cryptozoologist - comes to Louisiana bayous to research and find the truth behind the legends of loup-garou, a lycanthrope. In her research she comes across, Dr. Samuel La Roque - a local doctor of the small town's only clinic. Sparks fly immediately between them, but she fears he is more than what he seems to be.
A simple and straight-forward plot with no sudden surprises. Maggie Shayne pretty much keeps to the paranormal plot with the other world, but there is not a lot of meat for it to be a memorable plot. Very predictable and easy to guess what comes next. Of course the romantic angle is certainly there.
For a plot of 95 pages, it is marginally good one. Could have been a bit more meatier to make it not so easy read.
The Night Owl is the third story in the anthology Hot Blooded written by Emma Holly and published in August of 2004. Emma Holly contributed to this along with three other writers - Christine Feehan, Maggie Shayne and Angela Knight.
