Even the God's best intentions pave the road to hell. A line of shifters has evolved and integrated themselves into the human society that will hunt them into extinction if their existence is discovered. Not only do they have to blend in with the humans, but follow the strict code of laws enforced by the Ghuardians or suffer the wrath of their Gods.
Jared Morgan hasn't had it easy. Imprisoned for a crime that he didn't commit, he faces life as an ex con, trying to overcome his past and be the man that his young son needs him to be after being locked up for too many years. His mate was a nightmare, mentally and physically scarring both him and his son, leaving him cynical and jaded when it comes to the idea of love. But that won't stop the young pantheress that blows into town and sets her sights on him.
Serra Mangus is on the run. Growing up in her father's nightclub, she thought that she'd seen and done it all, until that night. She was brutally attacked and can't face her father or the idea of him knowing what she had not been able to prevent. After traveling the globe for a decade, she finds herself in New Orleans where she meets a surly and rude panther that, as much as her better judgement tells her to steer clear, she can't resist the bone deep attraction or what he makes her feel.
Tied together by fate and the will of fickle Gods and a world that is hell bent on tearing them apart Jared and Serra must overcome their past to fight for each other and their lives.
When you say that you write because that's the only way to shut up the voices in your head, folks look at you like you're crazy, but that desn't make it any less true. Maybe seeing a shrink is in order, but until then, I write and share the lives that I am lucky enough to be a part of, with you.
