Hanging in chains, brutally whipped and beaten Baron Vanern awaits death.  One day bleeds into another for the dying horse shifter. Someone touches him, speaks to him and Baron believes his torturers have returned.  

The shifter has actually been saved and brought to Chieftain Maelgwn’s gargoyle clutch in Colorado Springs.  Baron and his best friend tried to overthrow a cruel alpha. Now his friend is dead and Baron’s barely alive.  He refused to give the location of his friend’s family and almost paid the ultimate price.

It seems fate has rewarded the injured shifter in the form of his mate, an orange- shaded gargoyle training to become a healer for the clutch.  Conchlin managed to leave his birth clutch where intolerance of his small size meant he’d never have a decent chance to find his mate. Finding Baron proves all the hard work and subterfuge had been worth it. 

Sweet, easy going Conchlin has met his match in the alpha horse shifter who’s uneasy with certain aspects of their mating.  As the courtship begins further complications arise in the form of the little gargoyle’s birth Chieftain and his own father and brother.  Fighting for survival pales in comparison to fighting for one’s own mate. Baron has no intention of losing his mate, no matter their personal difficulties.  Mates are forever.
Comforting His Restless Stallion isn’t easy, nor are the many roadblocks to romance for the deserving little gargoyle Conchlin. It’s an uphill battle for Baron and Conchlin in this character driven tale where a particular mating practice proves awkward for the proud Alpha.  Conchlin’s past also catches up with him and puts their true mating in further jeopardy. There are a multitude of tense moments in Comforting His Restless Stallion yet nothing compares to the joyous feelings Baron and Conchlin share together.

Blacksmith Abner Johnson is one of the small number of humans who are well aware of the paranormal world.  The recent death of his sister and the unwanted attentions of a vampire have made Abner reassess his life.  A fresh start at a new coven out West is the answer.


Rescued after years and years of abuse by the pack Alpha and his cronies, the dingo shifter Pascal has ironically settled in at a vampire coven.  Of course, it helps that his two brothers are mated to coven members.  If only his brothers would understand and accept that Pascal has certain sexual needs for submission.


The very last thing Abner is looking for is a relationship with a shifter.  What he doesn’t understand and Pascal is too shy to articulate is the incredible force behind true mates.  Fighting fate is pointless.  Try telling that to the stubborn human.


A truly difficult relationship unfolds in The Strike of Hot Iron.  Hard headed Abner is the epitome of trouble for a sweet natured submissive shifter.  Miscommunication is the problem, as usual.  Between Abner’s refusal to unbend and Pascal’s inability to tell his mate the truth major headaches insure.  The cold human and tenderhearted shifter doesn’t seem like a good pairing, but The Strike of Hot Iron is able to give readers a ‘feel good’ worthwhile ending.
