Accepting Caladon's Scales
A Paranormal's Love: Book Nine

After seventeen years in captivity, Caladon O'Hara is finally rescued. The gargoyles weren't sent by his own family as they'd been looking for someone else.

Wolves of Stone Ridge: Book Twenty-Three
 
When wolf shifter Yates Cruner helps save several humans from a dingo shifter pack that had been using them as slaves, he doesn't expect to find his mate among them. Oh, not one of the humans, but one of the surviving dingo shifters who has been beaten and abused just as much as the humans. It seems the dingo pack had one rule...I'm more dominant than you, I can do whatever I want to you. Yates realizes his little mate has a long road of healing ahead, and most of it isn't for physical wounds.

When a group of strange shifters take over the pack, the rules change. Aryen struggles to understand what's expected of him.   Read More

Love on an Owl's Wing
Kontra's Menagerie: Book Eighteen
 
Having been married at one time, over a century before, Luc Laurent never expected to find another to spend his life with. His confusion is understandable when his son hands him an extra helmet and tells him to hang onto that. Luc understands later that afternoon when he rolls his motorcycle to a stop in front of a fellow shifter's home and discovers that the shifter's cousin, Dylan Sudderson, is his mate. While the fact that his mate can walk only with the aid of crutches concerns Luc, it's certainly not the deal-breaker Dylan seems to think it is. Luc is far more concerned about the fact that Dylan is human, so very young...and in the closet. Dylan is more than happy to get physical with Luc behind closed doors, but he's afraid of losing his parents if they find out he's gay.  Read More
