Book Blurb

A bear of a man and a bear shifter. What could be better?

I run a shifter club, not an easy job, but as a bear shifter myself, I have all the necessary skills.

While trouble tends to follow my kind, finding dead werewolves in my office shocks even me. But my bad day gets better when Lt. Seth Morrison shows up to investigate.

It’s not our first run in, nor is it the first time I’ve flirted outrageously with the big, gorgeous man, but this time, I’m determined things won’t stop at flirtation.

I’m going to get my paws on Seth, no matter how forbidden he is or how many men would like to see us both dead.


First edition published under series name 'Protect and Serve' at Changeling Press, October 2011.

Second edition independently published under the author's pseudonym 'Silvia Violet', March 2016.


Book Review

While this isn’t a direct sequel to 'Love With a Bite', a previous book in the 'Law and Supernatural Order' series, it does involve some of the same characters. Drew the vampire detective is back, as is his boyfriend Jason, the deer shifter, but the attention shifts to Drew's boss, police Lieutenant Seth Morrison and Brandon, a bear shifter who may or may not be involved in some serious criminal activity.

Seth may be a human, but he can growl with the best of them. He is a workaholic, believes in the good fight, and will bend the rules when he thinks it's the right thing to do. Which is why he stood up for Drew's right to remain a detective even after he was changed into a vampire and the majority of humans no longer wanted to work with him. This earned Seth a reputation with shifters, who are now more than happy to back him up. And that's a good thing, because the latest case he is working on is really hairy. So is the man he is supposed to arrest for murder, bear shifter Brandon. Not only is Seth more attracted to him than to anyone else, he also doesn’t believe Brandon did what the evidence seems to suggest. Instinct-1, rules-0.

Brandon owns a club, and has seen some shady business in his time, but this latest case makes his fur stand on end. He is determined to help, no matter the consequences, but he hadn’t counted on the complication of falling in lust with the detective in charge of working the case. It certainly complicates things and as much as Brandon wants to "get his paws" on Seth, he also has too much integrity to break his word and stop protecting the man who is at the center of the issues. Brandon is a typical bear in many ways, and protection, after all, is one of the things bears are good at. So is cooking, apparently, at least in his case, and his pie baking skills are almost as amazing as what he ends up doing with the finished product. Very, very hot!

If you like shifter stories that are entertaining as well as suspenseful, if you think a "bear of a man" and a "man who shifts into a bear" might be fun to follow when they run into each other, and if you're looking for a read that is as hot as it is full of criminals who need to be caught and brought to justice, then you will probably like this novella.
