I’m here to give you a first peek to Fangs and Catnip, my very first Dreamspun Beyond from Dreamspinner Press.
Carter is the new manager at the Dead and Breakfast Inn, and he falls for vampire silent partner Fallon, who is sure they don’t need a were-cougar as a manager…
A lot of people ask me what my favorite shifter is.
I never can just pick one. I love the animal mixed with man. My 3 tops ones are wolves, bears, and big cats. I really tend to try to put the characteristics of the animal into the character, and I tend to see wolves as organized pack animals, whether they adhere to that or fight against it. I look at bears as goofy comedians with big claws and teeth and tempers that can go off suddenly. The cats are more slinky, more mercurial, and definitely more into catnip.
Seriously, have you ever seen a video from a big cat sanctuary where they gave the tigers and mountain lions catnip. Adorable!
So in Fangs and Catnip, Carter is a were-mountain lion. I think he’s vaguely Tigger like. So does Fallon, the resident vampire drama queen. He’s pretty sure they don’t need a bouncy kitty, but when it comes right down to it, no one can resist Carter’s charm.
The owner of the B&B is a werebear named Tanner. He’s sweet, nurturing, but don’t cross him. He runs his business like a tight ship.
Psst. There’s a yeti and a gorgon in this one too!
I hope y’all love shifters as much as I do, and that you’ll take a chance on Fangs and Canip!
A Dead and Breakfast Novel
A romance worth fighting for—tooth and claw.
Solitary vampire Fallon Underwood gets all the social interaction he needs being the silent partner at the Dead and Breakfast B and B high in the Colorado mountains. Change is hard for Fallon, so when his business partner, Tanner, suggests hiring a new manager for the inn, he’s adamant that they don’t need help, especially not in the form of bouncy werecat Carter Hughes.
Carter is a happy-go-lucky kitty, and he loves the hospitality industry, so the D and B ought to be a great place for him. He falls for Fallon as soon as he picks up one of Fallon’s novels, and begins to woo the vamp with gifts. When Fallon finally succumbs to Carter’s feline charms, the results are unexpected, to say the least. Their mating will have irreversible consequences—for their bodies and their hearts.
