shifters

An Excerpt from Hot in Witch City

Hot in Witch City

A wolf shifter thinks I’m his mate.

Not going to happen. 

I’m half-siren and all single. No way am I giving up my freedom for some delusional furball.

Even if he’s kind of cute. And considerate. And has warm eyes.

Besides, I have enough going on with running my retro rock club. And when an unexpected relative shows up there one night, it shakes me to the core.

The last thing I need is to add another complication to my life, especially something as mundane as monogamy.

Fans of New Girl and What We Do in the Shadows will love the quirky roommates in the Salem Supernaturals series – paranormal chick lit with romance, comedy, and mystery!

Excerpt

Nova motioned behind her. “And this is Sebastian.”

This guy was as dark as Lucas was light and had a full beard. His expression was dead serious, the opposite of Lucas’s friendly smile.

“Hey, Sebastian.” I greeted him with a pleasant smile.

His mouth opened, but nothing came out. He stared at me, and I sighed. This wasn’t unusual. I attributed this effect to my siren blood. What exactly that meant, I didn’t know for sure. My mother abandoned me soon after I was born and took with her all the answers to the questions about that side of me. I’d never forgive her for it.

His nostrils flared, and he gazed at me with curiosity, like I was an undiscovered flower species.

Sebastian stepped closer—too close. Into my personal space.

When he sniffed me, I backed away. “What are you doing?”

“It’s you,” he declared with a fascinated but wary glance. “You’re the one who’s been driving my wolf crazy.”

I huffed. “I don’t know what you’re talking about, Sebastian, since we haven’t met until now.” Planting my hands on my hips, I said, “Quite an odd first impression, I might add.” 

His eyes flashed with amber amid the dark brown, and he leaned closer. “It’s your scent.” He inhaled once more. “I know it. I’ve smelled it at our house and—” he glanced around, “—here at the club.”

 A low, vibrating growl rumbled from his chest.

“Get yourself under control,” Lucas warned under his breath.

Holy tridents. I pointed at Sebastian’s chest. “Are you insane? You can’t let your animal side out in public.”

Sebastian’s eyes glowed brighter, almost golden, as he stared at me. He released a low, mournful moan that sounded more wolf than human. “Mine.”

“Oh no,” I groaned and stepped back. A possessive wolf. “I’m most definitely not yours. And don’t even think about shifting in here.”

Excerpt

After Damon took a shower, he returned to the living room, his hair damp.

Sophie gaped at him. “You look good wet.” She shook her head and rubbed between her brows. “Scratch that. It sounds weird.”

He grinned. “It sounded quite nice to me.”

She put down her book on the table. “I better take a shower before dinner.”

As she walked into the bedroom, his gaze dropped to her rear. It was almost impossible not to look whenever he had the chance.

While she showered, he tried not to think of her in there. He picked up a puzzle book and flipped to a crossword puzzle, but couldn’t focus on the clues. Sophie was naked in his cabin. Only a few inches of wood kept him from her.

He stepped into the kitchen and pulled a cold beer out of the fridge. Touching the glass bottle to his forehead, he hoped it would help him cool off.

Don’t pounce on her, don’t pounce on her.

The sound of her voice came from the bathroom. She’d started singing in there, but he couldn’t place the song. How would he ignore her now? He listened to her sing and smiled. Even when she went off-key, it was practically a siren song to him.

When Sophie stepped out of the bedroom, his mouth fell open. She was stunning. Her hair was pinned up and loose tendrils framed her face. Her skin had a rosy glow as if she was as excited to see him as he her.

And her dress. He groaned. The little black dress clung to her in all the right places–all those places his hands itched to touch.

Would she ever let him?

“You look good dry,” he teased. “But I wouldn’t mind seeing you wet.”

The Reluctant Wolf and His Fated Mate

White Mountain Shifters 1

Only Sophie has stepped into another pack’s territory.

If Damon crosses the boundary, he’ll break the treaty between their packs.

Excerpt

The last run of the day.

Damon climbed off the chairlift for one last check before he could head back to his cabin and unwind with a hard cider. Come dusk, he’d head into the forest so his wolf could hunt.

As part of ski patrol on Franconia Mountain, his responsibilities included ensuring that all the guests were safely off the mountain. This double black diamond trail had left more than one skier or snowboarder removing their equipment and walking down the steep pitch after discovering they weren’t up for the challenge.

Damon positioned his skis downhill and scanned from left to right for signs of any struggling skiers as he navigated downhill. Some of the fresh snow from last night had been brushed away by a full day of skiers and snowboarders, exposing a few icy patches. He steered around them. Approximately a third of the way down the mountain, ski tracks veered into the woods.

Either it was someone trying to ski off trail in a dangerous location—or someone was in trouble.

He skied toward the tracks. And then it hit him like he’d suddenly bolted awake from a dream—her scent.

His wolf stirred. We found her.

Damon grunted. He’d been arguing with his wolf for six months, ever since Sophie had run out of that club in Massachusetts. His wolf had urged him to pursue her, insisting they couldn’t let their mate get away. But Damon had refused.
He wouldn’t let one dance with a woman upend his life and all the drama he’d struggled to keep out of it. He wouldn’t be swayed by the notion of one fated mate—especially a human.

Still, he couldn’t deny the primal need that Sophie had stirred within him when they danced. It returned now as instinctive as muscle memory.

Was he imagining it? He took another inhale. It was her, no doubt. All his instincts flared, and his focus homed to one critical task—to find her.

He took a deep breath to steady himself and tried to calm his excited wolf. He would go after her, yes, but simply because it was his job. He had to make sure this woman was safe—if she was even in the woods.

The scent was fresh though, and as he followed her ski tracks into the woods, it grew stronger. His wolf clamored inside, hyped up with tremulous anticipation.

She’s close. Our mate!

Damon grunted and refused to acknowledge his wolf.

The terrain was steep. She had to be an expert skier to navigate the tree line. Hmm. Maybe not. No tight turns around the trees. The path veered off to one straight line through the trees, indicating that she might have lost control.Sophie could be hurt. Or worse.

Damon’s throat felt tight and parched. He swallowed. He would find her.

He had to find her.

The ski tracks ended and were followed by footprints. She must have removed her skis and attempted to walk. But where was she going?

The direction was bad. She was heading diagonally across the mountain toward the Sacco pack’s territory—which was off limits to his pack.

Not good.

Damn it. Damon had to go after her.

He took off his skis as well, since it was far too dangerous to try and navigate this pitch through the dense forest. Her scent grew stronger. His wolf romped inside. We’re close.

And so was the boundary to Sacco lands.

Her footprints crossed it.

Damon’s heart thumped like a warning signal. He stared at the invisible boundary line between the mountains that every pack member knew not to cross. To end territorial battles, the Sacco and Franconia packs had come to an agreement ten years ago, dividing the mountains.

The differing pack mentalities had exacerbated their differences. While the Franconia pack led by their alpha Rafe developed their lands into a massively successful ski resort with a flourishing village that welcomed humans, the Sacco pack chose to live in solitude, embrace a simple life in nature. The peace treaty agreed to live and let live, and that meant staying off each other’s lands.

A breach would break the treaty. Breaking the treaty could lead to a renewed battle over territory. A battle over territory could lead to full out war between the packs.

Damon had a choice. He could turn back to keep the peace and stay off Sacco land. Or…

Find her, find her, his wolf insisted.

She was in Sacco territory. What dangers awaited her there, he didn’t know. With their aversion to humans, he couldn’t risk it.

Or one of the wolves could try to claim her himself.

Damon growled. He wouldn’t let that happen. He’d never let that happen.

In the end, he didn’t have a choice at all. Instinct took over, and he leaped across the boundary, into forbidden territory, breaking the treaty with the Sacco pack.

He had to protect Sophie.
