About Dating Terrors:
The werewolf Asil finds a blind date might just turn into something more - if the woman can escape the dark magic binding her.
Source: Info in the "About Dating Terrors" was taken from the back cover of the book anthology Heroic Hearts edited by Jim Butcher and Kerrie L. Hughes.

My Thoughts:
Asil is an old, old wolf and just biding his time until the Marrok kills him and finally give him relief of this world. However, he also have pack mates who are mischievous who set him up with three blind dates with good intentions. The first blind date was a novella titled Asil and the Not-Date (book number 17.5 in the Mercy Thompson series) in the anthology Fantastic Hope. Asil, for the lack of nothing better to do, went along with it. And for the heck of it! This is the second blind date. For a very short story, this novella managed to have a tiny plot and gave a wonderful reading time! Too short a reading time!
