 Aries – loyal, competitive, courageous

Once burned, twice shy…
After her heart is broken, curvy Mary Andre is determined to never risk it again. Besides, she has too much work and too many bills for her SoCal sheep ranch to bother with romance. Born under the Virgo sign, she has a can-do attitude. Everything is under control until her coyote-shifter ex-husband slaughters one of her flock. Mary goes looking for a hero-for-hire, but fate deals her a Greek god. Handsome Demetri Larsen puts the tempt into temptation. It takes every ounce of her willpower to resist her desire for him.

Cursed to wander the earth until he finds his soulmate…
For three hundred years, the immortal ram-shifter lived life on the road, chasing pleasure when not called upon to act as an Aries Guardian. For Demetri, desire and duty are about to collide head-on when a feisty redhead upends his entire world. In his determination to neither hurt nor be hurt, Demetri refuses to take a chance on the love that could set him free.

Excerpt (PG)

“Is this your home?” Demetri asked.

“Yeah,” Mary said, sounding strained. “The ranch has been in my family for four generations. My parents have been gone a few years now—” She bit off whatever she’d been about to say, clearly changing her mind. Instead, she said, “It’s all mine now. Well, mine and the bank’s.”

He nodded. Less than a foot separated them. Desire heated his blood, rendering cool thought damn near impossible. Foremost instinct urged him to seize Mary’s shoulders and haul her against him, cover her mouth with his own, and kiss her senseless. With any other woman, he would’ve. But Mary wasn’t a common bar hook-up any more than Colleen could be called a mutt. Both women possessed fine pedigrees and refined sensibilities, and he wouldn’t be the insensitive clod that upset either of them.

“It’s beautiful.”

“Thank you.” Mary took a deep breath. Trembling, she took the final step that brought her against him. The full, firm swell of her bosom pressed against his chest.

“You’re beautiful.” He stroked his fingers over her shoulder and tucked a stray strand of hair behind her ear. When she tilted her head back, he brushed a light kiss over her lips.

Mary grasped his forearms, digging in with her nails. “Make love to me, Demetri.”

Excerpt (Spicy)

I almost wished the woman standing before me was about forty years older, with short, gray hair and was somebody’s beloved grandmother. Not the beautiful creature I’d been thinking about for the past two days. Though, now that I found her, I wasn’t about to simply ignore the chemistry igniting between us.

Yes, I felt it. Had she? The fact that she was in my employment should deter my desires, but it was difficult to ignore her stunning green gaze as she perused the room. I sighed, remembering the vision of her standing on the edge of the boat, her hair dripping, her clothes wet and clinging to each and every voluptuous curve on her body.

Glancing at the tan leather sofa to my right, I pictured her lying there, her blouse opened, her breasts bare, nipples tight and still wet from the attention I was giving them. I towered over her, bracing one arm on the back of the couch, the other on the edge of the seat, while I pressed into her again and again at a punishing pace … I needed to know how she tasted.

The dragon within me shifted with amusement and caused a flutter in my stomach. Though probably keeping my dick in my pants was the better choice here. At least for the time being.

I pivoted on my feet and headed for the door, then paused as the impulsive side of me surfaced. That damn dragon.

“I’ll need you at dinner tonight.”

ZS – Finding Cameo by Vonnie Davis

Welcome to Zodiac Shifters

A collection of books with an astrological spin on love. From Aries to Virgo… discover all-new tales of paranormal romance and urban fantasy.
Zodiac Shifters features New York Times, USA Today, and other bestselling authors. Each month expect new releases based upon the twelve astrology signs.

Aquarius ~ logical, curious, rebellious

Finding Cameo by Vonnie Davis

Bowie Matheson, an Aquarian bear-shifter and police detective, is the first to believe Gemini Cameo Stone’s retelling of a dramatic dream. Cameo, a new lawyer in town, has the gift or curse of having prophetic dreams. Bowie, a humanitarian, looks to protect his community.

As soon as Bowie’s bear sees Cameo, he chooses her for his human half’s mate. Bowie is not impressed. He wants a mate with a sharp mind. Someone as beautiful as her couldn’t have both. But with the magical help of pink-haired witch, Effie, the sparks fly between Cameo and Bowie.

The compatibility between their signs cause them to grow closer since they often think alike. They are analytical, intelligent, and love the process of learning. Once these two get tangled with HSS, a gang that’s migrated from Glasgow, lives are in danger, fears reign, and the typically calm life of the area changes.

When Cameo is abducted by the murderous gang will Bowie’s intellectual connection with the woman he loves help him find Cameo?

Release date: Mar. 4th 2018

Excerpt (Sexy) 

She was naked again.
The cold wind blew Cameo Stone’s long hair away from her shoulders and back. What was displayed below, as she floated above the danger, commanded her attention. Cameo was used to the form and sensations of her dreams. Dreams that were a sign of things to come—of illness, impending danger, or looming horrific events.
In her heart, she believed it was up to her to warn the person or persons in her nightmares that bad fortune lay ahead. A process that caused people to think she was whacky, dangerous, or someone simply to be avoided. It made for a lonely existence.
From her dreamy viewpoint, a silver compact like hers sped down a curved mountain road. A man wearing a black knit hat and black puffy jacket ran out of the woods.
Action slowed to a snapping movie frame of motion, which typically meant important clues were coming. He had a rifle with a scope. A hunter, perhaps? A more sinister reaction gripped Cameo. Part of the barrel had been sawed off his gun. His green-eyed gaze in a face dotted with tattoos shifted to the driver. So did his weapon.
An emblem was on the cuff of his black hat. Orange. Round. Edged in blood-red. In the center were bold black initials HSS.
The driver sped up, trying to go around the menacing man before he shot her. She hit a patch of ice and spun out of control. Out of her right peripheral vision, a policeman followed with his handgun drawn. The driver braked hard, swerved, tires squealing, but she still hit the officer. He rolled over her hood. As he bumped across the windshield, golden glowing eyes stared at her. His badge read Bowie Matheson. Sounds of him spinning and scratching her roof made her shudder. It was like fingernails on a blackboard. To her shock, a bear slid off her trunk giving chase to the man with the rifle.
Where had the damn bear come from? How had she missed that part?
By now, Cameo realized the driver was her. She zoomed silently from the sky to the interior of the automobile. As soon as she had it stopped, she jumped out, fully dressed somehow, and looked for the officer she’d struck. There was nothing on the road behind her compact. She dropped to her knees and peered under the vehicle. Nothing there. With her gaze shifting, she slowly circled her car before walking along the ditches on both sides of the narrow road.
Where was the man she’d struck?
She woke with his name on her lips, “Bowie Matheson.”
Her feet slid from under the pile of covers and slipped into her bedroom slippers, or baffies as the Scots called them. Cool air hit her and she reached for her robe mid-shiver. Her clock displayed three-forty-two and a cup of hot tea called her. All she had to do was shuffle downstairs to the kitchen in Matheson Lodge and heat a pot of water.
Cameo had been a guest at the castle converted into a hotel for five nights. She’d traveled to Matheville for an interview and was waiting for a response on a job as a solicitor at the law firm of McGuire and Dunn Associates. During the rest of the time, she drove and walked the narrow streets of the picturesque small town, acquainting herself with the businesses and places to rent should she get hired.
She tiptoed down the steps, wondering again why so many citizens bore the last name Matheson. The beautiful clean bay and the town, itself, bore part of the name. When she’d asked Fiona Matheson, who handled the reservation and staff of the lodge, the woman had informed her Mathe stood for bear.
Until the dream she’d just had, she hadn’t seen any bears.
Once in the kitchen, she turned on a light and filled a teapot with water. It would take her several cups to work through the meaning of the dream and settle her nerves. This had been the first time she’d ever been a player in one of her prophetic nightmares—and it had her especially rattled.
Her tea made, she stirred in two cubes of sugar. It would be a long while before she’d take her car for a drive in the mountainous segments of the Highlands. That much she was sure of. Parts of her dream were understandable. A cop chasing an armed man for whatever reason. Hints of the two men’s identities. This was typical in her night visions.
But where had the policeman gone? How had a bear replaced him? And why had that change been kept from her? Usually, she saw every gory aspect. Why not with this dream? Really, she ought to be relieved she’d been spared some of the details. And she would be if the driver of the car hadn’t been her.
Two cups of chamomile tea later, Cameo returned to her room and placed several logs in the fireplace. She crawled under the pile of covers, thankful for her flannel pajamas. Although the tea had soothed her, it hadn’t helped her to analyze the dream. She pulled the quilt over her shoulders, closed her eyes, and began counting backwards from one-hundred.
She was naked again…

Excerpt – Spicy

“Looking for a bit of snuggle time?” Julio asked.

“Why not?” Julio began to kiss her and it lit a fire deep inside.

Her mate was a wonderful lover so how had she forgotten that? He was naked too which always made it easier to seduce him. Stroking his chest she pinched a nipple lightly and both of them hardened. She leaned down tonguing a nipple then sucked on it. Julio moaned.

“Now I get to do what I want.” His hand cupped a breast as his tongue licked it then his mouth drew it in.

She felt liquid form in her channel as desire rolled over her. Her moan made Julio suck harder. “Goddess, that feels good.”

“I’d do anything for you, my mate.” He whispered in her ear before he nipped her earlobe. His tongue licked her ear and pressed inside it.

A shiver washed over her. She felt more heat in her lower belly. “I need you inside me.” She demanded.

“It’s my need to be there.” Julio admitted as his fingers slid inside testing her readiness.

He must have found it acceptable because she felt the head of his cock press against her entrance. Wrapping her legs around his waist, she arched up against him forcing his cock in a little more. His weight pressed it in all the way forcing a groan of pleasure from her.

After a brief pause, he started to thrust in and out speeding up each time until he was slamming in. It seemed his need was as strong as hers and she held on for the ride. Her muscles pulsed massaging his cock making it even more pleasurable.

“Goddess.” He yelled. “I’m about to come.”

Seconds later she felt herself explode just before his hot seed hit her channel. She held him tight as his body jerked and bucked. “That was incredible.” She admitted.

He rolled on his back and held his arms out for her. She slid into them feeling completely at home and safe for now. Sleep found them both, but they woke twice more during the night to enjoy each other’s love. When she woke again, he was gone.

When the front door closed, Levi turned heated eyes to Sadie. “Now where did we leave off?

Sadie’s stomach fluttered as Levi headed in her direction. A giggle slipped out of her mouth as she ran around the island. “Now wait just a minute…I don’t just turn on like a light switch you know. I had a knife to my neck.” Sadie pointed to herself as Levi eyed her from the other side of the island. But even as she said the words, that smoldering look in his eyes told her he would have her. Despite the rocky start between them, she admired Levi. He was quick to fix issues. He never once put her down about her shifting or her horns. Matter of fact, all he’d done since she’d met him was help her, and he didn’t once make her feel like less of a person. She could see herself being bonded to him, exploring one another and the love they could share if they were to give this a real chance.

“And said knife mark is no longer there. Next excuse.” He put his hands on the counter. There was a deep gleam to his eyes, almost predatory, and Sadie liked the effect he had on her with just a look. She did want him and she really wanted to finish what they had started. A pulse spread between her legs.

“I might half shift in the middle of sex.” Sadie was only a little worried about that. She’d never shifted during sex before, and earlier she had no hints of shifting even though she had been pretty worked up.

“I have a potion for that if you want it. Next excuse?”

Sadie took two steps back as his gaze bore down on her. She gulped, knowing he would come for her and she would like it. When her rear met the cabinet, she said, “What if I want to bond with you?”
