Chasing Wren's Tale by J.A. Fales is an appetizing blend of genres which includes erotic romance, fantasy, science fiction and humor. For one party at least, it's love at first sight. For the other, it's vexation. Yoga instructor Wren Cavanaugh cannot help but be plagued by titillating thoughts of Gunnolf Fenric, a gym owner who wants her to sell her business space to him. As Wren will find out, there's more to Gunnolf than his looks and that Scandinavian accent that manages to turn her name into a melody at one point. Gunnolf is a Berserker Wolf on the prowl to settle a centuries-old blood debt. Kidnapping Wren is only the first part of Gunnolf's plan. He is hungry. Wren is the only dish that he has on his mind.
The constant squabbling between the Berserker Wolf brothers, Gunnolf and Loki, aims to make us laugh and succeeds at it. His desire for Wren is undeniable and so is Wren's desire for him. The erotic scenes can be quite vividly detailed, rendering this amazingly written and structured novella only suitable for adults. The dabs of fantasy and science fiction are well-placed, coaxing us all the way until Fales decides to answer all of our questions regarding Wren and her importance not only to Gunnolf, but to the goddess Freya as well. Wren having a typical mom as a best friend makes this read all the more enjoyable. It's a fun, quick read with an ending that makes us hope frantically for a sequel. Answer our prayers, dear author!
