I like the idea of Lupei Manor as LGBT Center for magical beings in Lake Erie. That alone won some points for this story.
Also, odoriferous skunk Templeton might be, but he's so adorably smart when critical moments called for it.
Overall this is an entertaining read for me, with various shifters mentioned - although lycans still held majority spotlight being on both good and evil sides.
The other thing I like here: the equal opportunity partnership. Bigger didn't mean one automatically being a top. So, instant romance aside, another fresh mutual respect relationship which I approved!
