All of her hard-won self-confidence is shattered one evening when she is convinced her first pack has picked up her trail. To protect the town and Will, her lover, from their anticipated deadly revenge, she runs out into a blizzard during the night to put distance between herself and them. A short time later, she unexpectedly collides into Rance, a Moon Child previously unknown to her, who had been tracking a large group of vampires set on exterminating the population of Derris. The first part of the book details how he and Chelsea use their werewolf skills to minimize the vampiric damage and protect the town's citizens, but it also highlights Chelsea's growing internal conflict about loving Will while still being pulled into repeated sexual contacts with Rance by their Moon Child "craving" for each other. Compounding this inner tension is the discovery that Rance is an honorable man who does not behave at all like her first pack, and who has also won the gratitude of the townspeople (and Will) for helping them wipe out the vampire menace. How will this situation be resolved? Of the three, there is no "bad guy" here--just impossible complexity.
The teenager Matt, orphaned by the vampires and whom Chelsea had saved from a bear attack as a child, becomes a pivotal character in how this unlikely situation eventually finds a satisfactory resolution. Indeed, while continuing to maintain his teenage authenticity, Matt, who now lives with Will, is the one who delivers some of the most profound insights about love and family that make it possible for Will and Rance to "share" Chelsea in the end. Of course, any sharing could not have happened if either had been a lesser man.
In both Will and Rance, the author has profiled very strong male characters who are emotionally intelligent and willing to let their love of the same woman bond all three (four, if the teen Matt is included) together into a unique family/pack unit. While there is certainly plenty of action in the story, the overriding conclusion is that love and respect can effect some pretty amazing things. Drummond has made that point strongly in this tale of cross-relations between humans and supernaturals as well as through unconventional male/female arrangements. I strongly recommend this unusual tale for an uplifting perspective on "menage a troit".
