Book Blurb:

What would it be like to live in a world where you are considered abnormal to those who are above the norm?

Jenna O’ Conner has been taught her whole life to hide from everyone. Never to let anyone to close enough to know that she would prefer a shotgun for her birthday over of a bouquet of roses. She’s been smothered by her over protective family so that no one learns what she truly is. Which is not human. Nor, is she considered the norm for the supernatural Other community that is benevolent enough to share this world with the humans.

In a desperate attempt to live her own life away from the small town she was raised in, Jenna obtains her dream job as the newest member on the Wilmington Police Department’s SWAT Team. What she didn’t predict was that she would run into trouble her first day on the job, in the form of a deadly, mouthwatering man named Adam McPhee. Who is also not human, but more like a wolf walking around in human skin. He’s determined to figure out exactly what Jenna is, which unbeknownst to him, could very well put her life in danger. He’s also determined to have her all to himself.

As if that wasn’t enough for Jenna to deal with, bad news blows into town. A group of extremist Shifters who think humans are cattle and factions of Others worldwide should stay within their own species – never to intermingle. Chaos ensues. Jenna has to find a way to shut them down, but in the process of trying to do that, discovers things about herself that even she never thought was possible.

Who said the wolf was what you had to worry about?

Welcome to the real world. 


Everyone climbed into their respective vehicles to follow Jenna to her house. She should have been worried about Kent’s lack of intelligence at smarting off to the most powerful wolf shifter in the United States, but she wasn’t.

She should have been worried about whether her Uncle Owen would snap her partner’s neck for getting into a pissing match with him in a public place, but she wasn’t.

She should have been worried about whatever the reasons were for having members of a slightly psychotic wolf pack running amuck in the new city she called home, but she wasn’t.

No, suddenly Jenna was panicked about two things.

One, did she have enough food in her house to feed two overgrown shifter males and a large, sneaky demon? Because she knew demon appetites bordered on ridiculousness that could empty a small grocery store once a week and that was, in a word, scary. However, she also had no idea if shifters carried the same kind of appetite, and if they do, then she was, in another word, screwed. Somehow she didn’t think her meager stash of pepperoni slices, cheese and crackers would go real far.

Also, two, she really, really hoped that she had managed to pick up her dirty clothing from around the house. She had a terrible habit of stripping offending clothing off the moment she walked through the door. So it wasn’t unusual to see her bra lying on the living room floor as she made her way to the shower after getting off a shift from work. She also was not the tidiest person on the planet. In fact, her mama had repeatedly called her a hopeless slob of epic proportions if not kept in check. The absolute horror of her little brother—whom she didn’t even know existed until this morning—seeing her bras or panties was enough to terrify and humiliate her beyond words.

Because she was quickly discovering that the possibility of little brothers, even if they appear to be over the age of eighteen, seeing your undergarments equals two words.

Total mortification

Projected to be Released: January/February 2014

Book Blurb:

Does he have his claws in her for good? Or is she just yanking his tail?

Elena Demos’ life has been turned upside down. Her mother passed away, leaving Elena and her two half-sisters to deal with their mother’s will and the crazy stipulations in it. For the three sisters to inherit the substantial amount of money left behind they have to go work with two Aunts they’ve never met, in the family business they knew nothing about. Amazons Inc.. If that wasn’t bad enough, she runs into the man who broke her heart their first day on the job.

Gage Ivanov is a stupid beast. He let the woman who should be his mate go because she couldn’t be told of his Other identity. Now Elena’s back, but she refuses to give into his demands for her to be his mate. The timing for all of this couldn’t be worse. Gage and his circle of friends are trying to subdue a rogue pack of wolf shifters in Germany who threaten to out the Others to the world of humans. Will he be able to juggle the oncoming conflict and win back his mate?

Claws have never been this sexy.

Unedited Excerpt:

Gage Ivanov was in no mood to be fucked with by the woman looking blankly back at him from the other side of the desk that separated them. One would think he’d be in a better mood. He’d finally caught up on some desperately needed sleep after being awake 48 hours for a mission. This was not the case. If anything, he felt as if he was approximately 3.2 seconds from flipping his shit. Which would involve tearing the door off of the Fort Bragg Military Police’s inner sanctum, stalking past the annoying female with a tantalizing scent that was starting to drive him insane, and collecting his Heckler & Koch MK 23 his damn self from the evidence room. Screw the harpy for saying he couldn’t have his issued side arm back.

Taking a deep breath to try and battle his building anger, he blew it out slowly and decided to give the feeble human another chance before he did something drastic. Like pin her to a wall and kiss the ever living shit out of her.


Gage rubbed his forehead and wondered where the hell that crazy thought had come from? That idea was flat out ridiculous. He must be loopy still from lack of sleep. He’d probably meant that he’d pin her to the wall and scare the shit out of her. Not kiss her. Yeah. That sounded better.
