In their own time Armageddon his taken place and over the next coming years women become a rare commodity. Now in 2064 the world is a different land. The women find none of the comforts of their time. No electricity or running water. The times have changed and the women find it is a lot to get used to.
One other change the women find is that some of the men have become a whole new race of shifters, men who turn into wolves. These men live among the humans. Like their wolf counterparts they mate for life. In the "Plane Women" some of the wolf shifters have found their mates.
Connie is the co-pilot of the crashed plane from the past. Since she and the surviving passengers have landed she has become the de-facto leader of the women who have moved into town and not mated with the wolves. These women have been making plans, but it soon becomes evident that they aren't safe unless the town continues to protect them. When Connie finds out the town has no intention of doing that, she feels helpless to come up with a plan, until Des, one of the wolf shifters, comes up with one.
Des has known that Connie has been his mate since he first met her when the plane went down. When he first tells her she rejects him, or so he thinks. Des has been patient and when he learns of Connie's dilemma, he tells her he will help if she marries him. He makes clear it is completely her choice, but Connie is a leader and warrior and wants to do what is best for the women. She attracted to Des so maybe it won't be so bad after all.
This was a very well written short novella that fits into the storyline of the series and actually I like this couple almost as much as I liked the first, Taye and Carla, book in the series. It isn't essential to read the entire series to read this short, but the stories as a whole paints a better picture of the world the author is building.
