Short Series that Pack a Punch… of Entertainment!

Today I thought I would kick off the week by sharing some series of shorts that would be perfect to spice up and entertain you during the work week!

From Book 1: In this behind the scenes short story, Fern, a werebear, has to save her daughter from a grizzly in an unusual state of mind. However, she’s too far away to get between the enraged bear and her daughter. A werewolf comes and helps them.

Fern is immediately attracted to Bill once she realizes he’s friend not foe. She invites him for dinner as a thank you, and learns more than she likes.

Bill, a park ranger and a wolf without a pack, has many things hidden. Can Fern and Bill start a relationship even if the wolf packs are on brink of civil war and the werebear clan would not approve?

Story should be read between book one, The Ulfric’s Mate, in the War of the Weres series, and book two. They will be featured in a later book.

From Book 1: An evil darkness forces Mykel Campbell to reveal his magical powers.

Mykel leaves his beloved Highlands in search of a wife. He has two requirements: loyalty and comeliness. Lyall has plenty of both and more. She possesses a spirit of adventure he found appealing. His attraction to her could nae be denied. Verily, his good fortune is complete. Until the darkness strikes Lyall’s village. An evil which takes magic to defeat.

Lyall resolves never to marry. She could nae imagine finding anyone who would accept her magical abilities, much less her strong skills for reading and numbers. Then Mykel Campbell visits their village, and her heart is no longer hers, her body like a foreign land. He came in search of a wife. Could she dare hope?

Then an evil shadow full of creatures of her nightmares encompasses the land, and her family is in peril. Mykel swears his sword and magic to protecting them. Would the two of them survive to have the love of a lifetime? Or would evil triumph?

Sarah, Countess of York and decrier of false men of the ton, enjoyed a good flirt, but she had her heart set on Lord Archer. Only, for the past four years, he barely acknowledged her existence except as best friend to his sister Hermione. Sarah had hopes that he began to see her as something more, but then the threatening notes started. Lord Archer also happens to be in the vicinity as each one is delivered. She hates the suspicions rolling around in her mind. However, Father taught her how to watch for treachery, and she couldn’t ignore the logic or the coincidence of Lord Archer’s presence, nor could she deny the pain in her heart at the thought.
Lord Archer had loved Sarah all her life, but once her parents died, he’d taken a step back, searching for a wife amongst the ton as a proper lord should, leaving her to heal. Instead, he found himself drawn more and more to Sarah as she matured into the perfect woman to be by his side. However, could she handle the secret life he led? Did she know about her father’s secret life? But none of that mattered once she started receiving those damn letters. Someone was out to hurt the woman he loved, and he planned to catch them or die trying. Could he also woo her and remind her of the love and trust of their childhood? Or would the situation keep them apart, or worse, kill the woman he wanted to marry?
