Connor and Faelan have been dating for 6 months, and he knows that one day, he wants everything with her, but for now, he offers her an antique ring. She puts it on, and begins to feel a bond with it, which she tells him nothing of. She begins to get very moody (to the degree that I wondered why he bothered with her, as she was a b**ch), and realises that the legend attached to the ring is true: she's become lupine.
OK, so when he finds her in heat/thrall to the ring, he agrees to have sex with her, but it felt as if he were being forced into it, and this was further confirmed when she deliberately bit and infected him during sex. After they were done, she informed him that they were now mated in the ancient tradition, and both werewolves. Like it or lump it, Connor.
So, not a great deal of character development (or was there, going from human to were?), and a tale that could have been sort of good, had it been longer and had there been some time to learn of the legend, had they had a chance to try to consider options/live with it/talk about it. It felt like a forced mating and relationship, that was geared towards Faelan, not Connor. He was too weak a character and couldn't stand up to her, but had the tale been longer, with a touch of a re-write, he could have been a better character, and this might have actually been a romance, instead of the tale of a b**ch turning into a were-bitch and having her cake and eating it.
