Smilodon Pride, Book Two
Genre: Paranormal, Adventure
Roan has pretended to be a human for long enough. He needs to get out of town and roam the land, as any proper werecat should.
The last thing he wants is his conscience insisting he should save an abused werewolf from a traveling circus first. The very last thing he expects is the local sheriff’s daughter having the exact same idea – and beating him to the punch.
Their rescue goes spectacularly wrong, and suddenly Roan, Betsy and their crippled wolf find themselves fleeing across the US for the Mexican border, chased by the police and vengeful circus fey alike.
Sunchaser is a non-romance, road-movie-ish urban fantasy adventure novel about a werecat drifter, a wide-eyed human girl and a defective werewolf learning that sometimes, family really is the ones you didn’t pick.
Leaning back so his head came to rest against Betsy’s thigh seemed like the most natural thing in the world, but her fingers suddenly froze.
“Just for the record, we are not flirting or anything, are we?” she asked, sounding uncertain.
“Nope.” Roan nudged her fingers with his head demandingly.
She obediently took up her scratching again. “Good.” For a while she methodically worked her fingers over his head from his brow to his neck. “Cause I still haven’t given up hope that once Martin remembers how to change back, he’ll turn out to be a totally attractive studmuffin.” Now she sounded like her usual, confident self again.
Roan snorted derisively and leaned his head to the left so she could better reach that side of his neck.
“Come on, he could be so hot you just can’t resist. Despite the whole dog thing.”
“Not into guys.”
“Oh.” Again a longer silence filled with vigorous scratching followed. “Well, there won’t be anything happening between us,” she stated. “I hate those stories where the ordinary human girl turns out to be the heroine who gets all the super hot supernatural guys. And I am so not having a stupid love triangle with you and Martin fighting over me!”

Start your journey with Book One in the Smilodon Pride series:
Connor’s life used to be the dream of any cultured werecat. He spent his days in Paris’ gay quarter with comfortably little real work, playing the piano, surrounded by art, fine food and good friends. Now, a feral vampire preys on the prostitutes of ‘his’ quarter, killing the boys of the Marais one by one.
When Connor invites a newly arrived hooker to stay on his houseboat, the last thing he expects is Michel to be a member of the Brigade Criminelle – a troubled, hunky rookie cop sent undercover to explore Connor’s connection to the murders, picked mostly because he had been a boy of the Marais himself, not so long ago.
Hiding their true natures becomes a problem for both when their initial attraction becomes much more than they ever thought possible. But in order to bring down the serial killer and maybe have a chance at making their relationship work out, one of them will have to take the first, critical leap…
