Book Blurb

Sean Cameron is a pint-sized rooster shifter, but he’s got the sassy attitude of a much larger animal. He has a knack for getting into mischief, namely bar brawls.


Then revolts aimed at paranormals shift into high gear, and Sean is forced to seek shelter out in the boondocks. There he meets Ty Atwater, the Delta wolf of the Pariah Pack, an accountant who enjoys the quiet life. He’s the sweetest and shyest guy in the world—and Sean’s mate.


But Sean harbors a dangerous secret that could get everyone around him killed.


Add to that a tempting cowboy, a bunch of violent bullies, and a pinch of voodoo magic, and an explosive cocktail of epic proportions is ready to go off—with Sean the troublemaker at its heart holding a lit match.


Book Review

A quiet wolf who happens to be an accountant is pretty rare, if not almost unheard of in the paranormal world. But a rooster shifter with a secret, one who is sassy enough for two and constantly in trouble, occurs no more frequently in the paranormal worlds I am familiar with. And having the two of them be mates and needing to figure out if they can make a relationship work beyond the basic mystery of the mate bond – that situation can only lead to fireworks. And that is exactly what happens in this very entertaining, suspenseful, and occasionally funny sixth volume of the ‘Pariah Pack’ series.

Sean is a playboy, used to living it up in the city, and as spoiled as he is used to getting what – and whom – he wants. He has never had to work and has no idea how to fit into a pack where everyone has a purpose and something to contribute. Sean is also a trouble magnet of the first order, maybe not intentionally, but he sure has a knack for getting into brawls, fights, and outright dangerous situations. He has already left “the big city” because paranormals are being hunted, but danger seems to be following him closely. Running into a mate who seems to reject him at first glance means Sean is quickly looking for a way out – until the trouble that gets him into exposes his secret and his situation become pretty hopeless.

Ty is a shy wolf, a delta who is the pack accountant. I guess it can happen in the world of the Pariah Pack, since the hierarchy the author has developed allows for all kinds of unusual positions and designations. Ty may be a withdrawn sort of guy – but Sean brings out his tenacious side, Ty is determined to figure out a way to help Sean, and, as it turns out, he is just the guy to do it. What a ride!

Sean and Ty do not seem to fit in any way that counts. For the longest time I was wondering what Fate could have been thinking when pairing them up. As it turns out, whatever differences there are between Sean and Ty in temperament and perspective, they actually work well together once they get their heads screwed on right. The time it takes them to get there, plus all the temptation, danger, and mystery that surrounds them, made for a very entertaining read indeed!

If you like the world of the Pariah Pack with its intricate pack hierarchy and varied pack members, if you think that a quiet accountant and an out-and-proud troublemaker can fall in love, and if you’re looking for a read that is full of surprises, new revelations, and quite a bit of passion, then you will probably like this novella.
