There’s a werewolf in Granny’s kitchen and Red doesn’t know where to start asking questions. But this surprise visitor might just wind up being the best thing in Red’s life.
Note: I started (hand) writing this story near the end of last year. It’s been in the works for way longer than that. I wanted to write the werewolf story that I wasn’t seeing in the world: a story where a cute and tiny Black werewolf gets the (big and buff) girl and then – They get another girlfriend. This is one of the most self indulgent thing that y’all will see from me this year, especially if you dodged listening to the A/B/O post on Patreon. Thank you for coming along on my journey for yet another year. I love y’all like my little bossy werewolf loves baking. ❤
Red isn’t expecting the wolf that she finds in her
grandmother’s sunny kitchen. It’s not like she’s never seen a werewolf before,
this part of the country is lousy with them. However, Red has never seen a
werewolf in her grandmother’s house
before. Not with how… complicated the relationships are between her grandmother
and the local packs.
Hell, Red has even worked with a few werewolves at the zoos
she’s been working at across the years. They’re the best people to have at your
side when dealing with the natural wolves that many zoos have, and they can
handle the heavier predators.
The werewolf bending down in front of the oven doesn’t look
like any of the werewolves that Red has worked with before. For one thing, Red
thinks to herself as she watches the werewolf straighten up to a not-so
intimidating height, this is the shortest werewolf Red has ever seen. She
barely comes up to Red’s shoulders and she seems like such a tiny little thing.
Gold eyes meet green ones.
At some point during Red’s distracted observation, the
werewolf has turned to face her. Oh, and what a face. Deep brown skin, high
cheekbones and an upturned nose.
I adore Stephanie. ADORE. Stephanie is an up and coming urban fantasy writer who takes trope and genre subversion to a whole other level with her Harrietta Lee series. I’ve reviewed Bloodbath and Deadline before and a constant across both reviews is how much I can’t stop loving Harry’s ridiculous ass. I don’t know if I want to be her bossy friend or gently kiss her face (or both??).

I really enjoy Zen Cho’s writing style.
Her novel Sorcerer to the Crown was one of the books I spent most of 2015 waiting for and believe me, it was worth the wait. She’s just a fantastic writer who can make me ugly cry with just a few lines and her characters almost seem to leap off the page.Read More »
After a hectic first day, Sheriff Andrade invites Isabella for dinner.
Twelve hours into her first week as a sheriff’s deputy and already Isabella wants to crawl back into her bed at the in and just stay there for days.
The deep ache in her limbs from riding Marisol so far in such a short amount of time has yet to wear off and every time Isabella moves –or, hell, thinks about moving – her body makes sure that she remembers and regrets. She’s been following Alexandra all day around town, getting introduced to the people she’ll be protecting and locking up if it comes right down to it.Read More »
Isabella finds herself with a job, a home, and what might be a reason to stop running all in a very short time.
Note: This is the first story in a series.
Isabella rides into Temptation Valley in the early hours of the morning on the back of a bay mare that isn’t hers.
Sitting straight up in the saddle, Isabella doesn’t let any of the worry that she feels show on her face. She guides the mare forward with a quiet click of her tongue, directing the horse towards the biggest building on the town’s dusty main street – a building with a hand-painted sign at the front of it that says Temptation Valley Inn in faded paint.Read More »
