Theodore Reinhart is a young man looking for love. In San Diego. At a convention. For penguin shifters. WaddleCon is the go-to event of the year when looking for your life partner, but Theodore isn’t comfortable with the game they’ve turned dating into, nor does the convention provide for the gay community. A mistake in speed dating table assignments puts Theodore in front of Wesley O’Neill, a handsome and confident model who lets it slip that he’s definitely noticed the spark of attraction between them.
A perfect date ends prematurely when Theodore finds an abandoned egg in a bathroom trash can. Unable to leave it behind, Theodore and Wesley play a mad game of cat and mouse across the resort trying to keep it safe, all while growing closer to one another. Wesley may be the forever partner Theodore came looking for, but their relationship won’t work if they don’t make room for a little addition to the family.

OMG – PENGUINS! This is a GREAT short story. It’s full of humor a tiny bit of sexy times and an adorable pair of PENGUINS! Once you throw in the egg they find discarded in a bathroom, you have the makings of a fantastically funny and engaging short story.
Theodore ends up at WaddleCon by mistake – he doesn’t realize it’s for straight couples – BUT he manages to find the one? bi-sexual penguin shifter and luckily it’s lust at first sight.
But that’s not all – they manage to find an egg abandoned by someone trying to cheat on her husband and end up rescuing the egg but nearly losing their lives at the hands of the enraged spouse.
I really enjoyed this. The writing was crisp and effortlessly flowed. There’s a bit of humor, sweetness, adventure and a nice bit of world building as well – all in 32 pages!
