With creating a new take on werewolves that I haven't yet explored I needed to go through what I knew about my favorite shifters and decide what I'd use and what wouldn't be included. The more bestial werewolves aren't my type. Maybe they will be someday in the future but that's not how these are. And I like my shifters able to change at will instead of with the moon, though they may feel stronger while under it. But without those differences I needed to have something that made them different than the humans that they live and work with.
Aside from simply being able to shift, and without giving anything away, the werewolves in Rescuing Jack and in the series A Forever Home altogether, have some quirks. For starters I looked at my favorite things to eat and then denied them those pleasures. But what these werewolves can do to other people is the interesting part.
