Templeton Reed has been hiding his inner polecat since he was a child. Keeping his animal secreted is hard for a shifter, especially when one is living in a secret community of mystical beings. It's the wolf shifters that cause Templeton the most trouble with their darned sensitive noses.
Templeton has a run-in with the Lake Erie pack and their alpha, Mikel Lupei, at the Office for Transmogrification Registration (OTTER). Templeton has a desk job checking registration papers and dealing with wolf shifters is not part of his job description. After that upsetting meeting, the meek and mild office worker suddenly finds himself in the center of not only civil unrest among the shifter community, but a violent plan for a coup aimed at rousting Mikel.
Templeton and Mikel, a skilled tracker of rogue shifters, are soon not only fighting for their lives, they're also fighting the rigidly archaic rules of their kind, as well as the person responsible for trying to take over Mikel's pack from the inside. Can this magical odd couple turn a passionate attraction into a full-fledged love affair?

This is a fairly short story so world-building, characters & plot come together a little too abruptly. However, if you want a short, sweet little love story w/ a request for tolerance of differences, this will do nicely.
Its biggest issue is the narration. Ron Welch has a pleasing voice, performs well and his character voices are fine, BUT he constantly mispronounces words. (I'd give him a 4 if he had a reasonable spoken vocabulary)
This happens throughout the entire story, w/ a variety of words, which was Extremely distracting! Some of the time it sounded like the problem might have been an incorrect word from using auto-correct on the text. The rest of the time it was definitely just the narrator not pronouncing the words correctly.
Are audio books not edited? Isn't there someone in the whole recording process to make sure the book is Actually ready for release?
An Erie Halloween is a fun size M/M romance w/ editing issues.
