Sneak Peek: To Snarl or to Snuggle #3 PLUS ebook #sale

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?

 

She just wants to make it through her whirlwind wedding. Too bad life isn’t cooperating.

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…

Fucking Strange: #8Sunday Snippet

jaguar relaxing webChloe has some trouble taking things seriously–and Jorge doesn’t always help. But then, laughter is the best medicine when life throws you a curveball–like falling for a jaguar shifter.

My lips twitch in a teasing smile. “So really you’re not all that special after all. Aside from the whole you-can-turn-into-a-jaguar thing.”

He shoots me his devastating smile and raises his eyebrow. “Yes, besides that, I’m a completely normal human,” he deadpans.

I find myself laughing easily at this joke. Was it really less than a week ago that I met him and found out he was a jaguar? Life is fucking strange.

Shredded Clothes: #8sunday #sneakpeeksunday

Today, a little taste of lovemaking from my new novel To Hiss or to Kiss.

“These are my favorite jeans. Don’t shred them.”

The rumble of his laughter carries into the breast he’s suckling. He rises up enough to reach down and undo my jeans. “I guess I’ll just take my time getting them off then.” His voice is husky as his hand snakes inside and pushes down my jeans and underwear. He kisses the sensitive skin of my hip and continues to trail wet kisses down my legs as he slowly slides my pants off.

He drops them on the ground, looking down at me with such heat in his eyes that I can’t even remember why I was so mad at him.

Comic Relief #sneakpeeksunday #8sunday

So my release date got pushed back to March 1. More time to promo, I guess. 🙂 I’ll be unveiling my cover on Feb. 18 on my Facebook page.

As for my snippet, this week I’m offering up a little doggy comic relief. Chloe, my heroine, communicates with animals. If you own a pet, you know they have their ways of waking you up, but it’s a little easier for them when they can talk to you!

 

“Chloe, wake up. I really, really, really need to pee.”

I moan and sink deeper into Jorge’s arms, pulling my hand back.

“Chloe, wake up. I’m dying here. I have to pee.”

Ugh, why won’t that voice go away? I crack my eyes open and see Ringo by the bed prancing around doing the doggy version of a potty dance.

Ringo starts prancing toward the bedroom door. “Thank goodness. I’ve got to go.”

#SneakPeekSunday – Lusty Thoughts

To Hiss or to Kiss releases this 3.1.13. Here’s an excerpt of the heroine, Chloe, talking with her best friend Naomi about meeting the first human she’s ever been able to psychically connect with. Chloe is an animal communicator, so she’s justifiably freaked out by the new development.

“Oh, you really were having hot lusty thoughts. Ooh, this is getting good. You’ve got the hots for a guy you can mind speak with. It’s like soul mate/twin flames kinda stuff. This is so cool.”

Leave it to Naomi to find the silver lining—and already be planning my wedding in her head. Not that she dates much either but, unlike me, she has managed to remain a romantic at heart and believes we each actually have a soul mate. I don’t think I’ve ever been romantic. Maybe when I was, like, eight or something. I’ve never really been a Disney Princess kind of girl.

“Maybe it’s cool for you,” I snark. “A guy I’ve never met may have heard me think he’s hot and a little bit about what I’d like to do about that.”
