After yet another bad dream, Leland accepts he can no longer keep his secret; the time had come to confess all to his best friend, Drew. He sets out early in the morning, determined yet fearful of Drew’s reaction to what he must tell him. Leland has loved Drew ever since they were teenagers and together they experimented with their sexuality, but Drew has only ever been his best friend. He dreads maybe even losing that when Drew learns the truth.
However, when halfway through the forest to Drew’s home, Leland is forced to take cover when he sees a large grey wolf tailing another man. His concern turns to shock when the man abruptly shifts to become a wolf and attacks the grey wolf.
The fight is swift and bloody and ends when the man-wolf runs off. Leland gets his second shock of the morning when the grey wolf abruptly shifts to become human. To become Drew. Too surprised to do more than watch as his now very naked best friend rushes off, Leland is in for yet another surprise when he finally confronts Drew later that morning.

Freya’s Book Brief
For years, Leland has held a torch for his best friend, Drew. Both knew the other’s preference - they’d experimented together as teenagers. Then, at college Drew wanted to play the field and Leland agreed.
Leland has secrets that he’s been holding onto for years, and they’re not only his feelings for Drew. He decides to confront the matter, but gets a shock of his own. When the men eventually face each other, past events emerge and one confession turns into several.
Another Secret is a short story and as such doesn’t go into a complicated scenario or prolonged drawn out plots. In many ways, it’s a classic shifter tale of best friends, an adversary, and more than one clawed problem to solve. Most of all it’s about love conquering.
If you like a little straightforward werewolf story, with a smidgeon of gore, to fill a couple of hours, this will do the trick. It’s a sweetie.
