The third book in my Hidden Lines series just came out, and to celebrate I’ll be sharing some sneak peeks from Chapter One. To Snarl or to Snuggle concludes the trilogy that charts Chloe and Jorge’s journey to their happily ever after. Sneak Peek #1 can be found here and #2 here.
I get up to intervene, opening my telepathic gift to send a mental tap to the boy. His head whips toward me, his body swiveling into the table again. It screeches across the floor, drawing any gazes that weren’t already looking his way. I hold my focus on him. His brown eyes are wide and frightened. Another tuft of hair sprouts on the back of his hand.
Now that I’ve got his attention, I smile tentatively. I really wish I knew what the hell to say to calm down a hormonal teenage shape-shifter, but as an only child with a freakish psychic gift, I don’t have a lot of people skills. Instead I default to the soothing words I telepathically murmur to homeless animals at the shelter. “It’s OK. I can help you. You are safe with me.”
He stands motionless now, his eyes glued to mine. Out of the corner of my eye, I see the barista stop, look between the two of us. My gaze darts his way.
“It’s OK. I know this boy and can help him.”
The barista nods, and I shift my full focus back to the boy. His posture relaxes ever so slightly.
“I know you’re a shape-shifter. It’s OK. Do you understand what’s happening?”
Chloe thinks her life is just about perfect. She’s finally got her psychic abilities under control, her relationship with her father has never been better, and she’s finally marrying her shape-shifter boyfriend Jorge. But when a teenage shape-shifter in need of help leads Jorge’s rival to their door, Chloe’s perfect life deserts her. Chloe’s mother and grandmother find themselves in a psychic feud that leaves Chloe caught in the wake, and a woman with suspect motives insinuates herself into Chloe’s life. Throw in a shocking revelation about the origins of her family’s extrasensory abilities, and she’s not sure she’ll make it down the aisle in one piece, let alone live long enough for a happily ever after…
And she thought meeting her in-laws was tough.

Chloe can “talk” to animals…so why can she hear the thoughts of this hot, green-eyed man?
Abandoned by her mother and raised by a father who’d given up on life, Chloe doesn’t let anyone get close. Lucky for her, she can communicate with animals—telepathically. Animals are the only people she needs. When a suspected dogfighting ring comes to her attention, Chloe decides to do a little spying. In her rush to win the dogs’ trust, she almost gets caught.
Until a sexy stranger intervenes, and she finds she can overhear his thoughts. She’s never been able to hear people, and this man’s about as sexy as she’s ever seen. It’s more than intellectual curiosity that drives her to discover his secret: he’s a jaguar shape-shifter, and the presence of this cat among the dogs might be a bit too much to handle. But the animal attraction is just too hot to resist, and the passion between them makes both the sparks—and the fur—fly…
