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.
Belatedly, he realized that she had just watched him kill four people, rip out throats and bite off necks. Maybe she wasn’t horrified that he was hurt, but at the sudden realization that he wasn’t quite the nice kitty she had seen him as. The thought stung much worse than he would have expected. Being a hardass loner had been fine as long as he didn’t know how much he enjoyed the way Betsy smiled at him, how she learned and grew and became a part of his life he didn’t want to miss again. He didn’t want her to look at him with fear instead of trust.
“You’re hurt,” she whispered and knelt next to him, reaching out to him, but then checking herself. “What can I do? Painkillers? Food? You need food, right?” She looked very scared, but determined all the same. “Do you want to eat one of them? I can help.”
And maybe she didn’t give a fuck about the guys who had tried to shoot her werekitty and was just worried about him.
Damn, but it felt good to see nothing but care and compassion in her eyes.

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…
