A BBW Paranormal Shifter Romance
NOTE: This book was originally published in the On the Growl anthology.
What happens at Haven… doesn’t always stay there.
Life couldn’t get much better for fun-loving housecat shifter Katie O’Meghan. She’s left her alley cat upbringing behind to become an activities coordinator at the luxurious Haven Resort, an exclusive island retreat for shapeshifters. Not even in her wildest fantasies did she imagine landing such a prestigious job and she would never do anything to risk losing it.
Arnaud Simpson hasn’t taken a vacation in two years and he doesn’t intend to start now. Work is what kept him going after his mate’s death, and it’s the only thing that helps him forget he’ll spend the rest of his life alone. Eagles mate for life, after all.
When Arnaud’s job brings him to Haven, Katie’s zest for life — not to mention her luscious curves — tempt him in ways he never thought possible. But even if he could mate again, would a free spirit like Katie ever want to settle down with a conservative corporate attorney like him? It hardly matters because the most important rule at Haven is the one rule that would keep them apart.
To Screech Their Own is the first in a series of standalone shapeshifter romances set at the mysterious Haven Resort.
This novella is the first in the Haven series and ends in an HEA. Katie is a cat shifter excited for her dream job at the Haven resort. Haven is a resort for shapeshifters. Arnaud is an eagle shifter widow. Eagles mate for life, so Arnaud does not expect to find another mate, ever. The pull between Arnaud and Katie is strong and very hot.
>Between the Haven rule of no sleeping with guests and a co-worker up to no good and out for Katie’s job, an HEA doesn’t seem possible for Arnaud and Katie. The story is short, but very erotic. The mystery involving the co-worker could have been developed into more of a story. Katie seemed to have an interesting backstory. The story could have been richer if her backstory was included in a lot more depth.
>The romance was hot, but happened so quickly. A little more build up would have made the eventual fall so much more romantic. I am a reviewer for Romance Authors that Rock. This book is appropriate for an adult audience. I am giving the story 4 stars. There was a lot of the story missing.
