Coming home late from work one evening, curvy beauty Trina Daniels is almost assaulted by two large men. As Trina struggles, an enormous wolf jumps out of the shadows to save her. Trina soon learns that the wolf is actually a shape shifter, a gorgeous man in human form with a hidden past. Warning: this 5,000 word story contains explicit descriptions of mind-blowing sex that will leave you begging for more! Excerpt: The man was large and muscular, even larger than the two who had attacked me. His longish black hair was disheveled and hung in his eyes. His ice-blue eyes seemed to pierce through me in an expression that was unreadable, and still had something animal about it. As my mind reeled, trying to make sense of what I had just witnessed, I stared at the man before me. I saw powerful, broad shoulders that tapered down to a lean, muscular abdomen, rock-hard, sculpted thighs and calves, and feet that seemed rooted to the ground in an almost preternaturally balanced position. I cast my eyes away from him and tried to take a step back, but stumbled. In a flash, his arms were underneath me, catching me almost before I knew I was falling. Now I was in his arms, and could feel the body heat radiating from him, concern in his eyes as he looked into mine. I suddenly realized I was shaking.

Kita Nekai, on the run and the smallest of her shifter clan--a calico cat among lions and tigers--is being hunted. She was expected to accept her role as her father's successor whether or not her cat was up to the task of leading the clan. She disagreed. Now she's less than a step ahead of the hunters, bone-tired, cold, and living hand-to-mouth in the city of Haven. And that's the high point of her day. She's also drugged, "accidentally" turned into a vampire, and sentenced to death for recklessly creating a rogue shifter who tortures its human prey. She's got seventy-two hours to find the rogue, evade a city full of hunters, prove she's not responsible for the rogue, and keep the vampire council from killing her. All while sorting out an apprentice mage, a married ex-boyfriend shifter-hunter, and the vampire who made her.

With her former fiancé off finding himself, Melanie Travis figures the only ring she'll be seeing in the near future is one where she's showing her prized poodles. But love is still in the air for her brother Frank, who is about to tie the knot with his sweetheart, Bertie Kennedy. With scant knowledge of tulle, favors, or cocktail hors d'oeuvres, Melanie happily leaves the nuptial arrangements to Sara Bentley, a fellow dog handler moonlighting as a wedding coordinator. But when Sara suddenly vanishes, a panicked Bertie gives Melanie a choice: either pinch-hit for Sara--or find out where she is. Opting for the latter, Melanie begins sniffing around into Sara's past--and unearths big trouble when Sara's cottage burns to the ground and a woman's body is found in the rubble. There are plenty of people with grudges against Sara--from Maris Kincaid, a disgruntled dog groomer; to Debra Silver, a competitor whose dog had been poisoned a decade ago; to Josh Bennett, her embittered ex-boyfriend. Even Sara's own family seems oddly unconcerned about her disappearance. . .but are the blue-blooded Bentleys cold-blooded enough to kill one of their own? Melanie soon realizes that despite the best-laid plans, anything can happen. And when it comes to Sara Bentley, nothing is certain--except that it's up to Melanie to stop a murderer in his--or her--tracks. . .

Living in Toronto for a year, Elena is leading the normal life she has always dreamed of, including a stable job as a journalist and a nice apartment shared with her boyfriend. As the lone female werewolf in existence, only her secret midnight prowls and her occasional inhuman cravings set her apart. Just one year ago, life was very different. Adopted by the Pack when bitten, Elena had spent years struggling with her resentment at having her life stolen away. Torn between two worlds, and overwhelmed by the new passions coursing through her body, her only option for control was to deny her awakening needs and escape. But now the Pack has called Elena home to help them fight an alliance of renegade werewolves who are bent on exposing and annihilating the Pack. And although Elena is obliged to rejoin her "family," she vows not to be swept up in Pack life again, no matter how natural it might feel. She has made her choice. Trouble is, she's increasingly uncertain if it's the right one. An erotically charged thriller, Bitten will awaken the voracious appetite of every reader, as the age-old battle between man and beast, between human and inhuman forces, comes to a head in one small town and within one woman's body.

Bastian had to have been the most handsome man that Katherine had ever met. It really was unfortunate that he was also the most stubborn, controlling, downright infuriating jackass she’d ever known as well. Oh, and there was the fact that he was a werewolf – a werewolf who has bitten her. Sixteen-year-old Katherine Mayes had never believed in mythological creatures like werewolves or mermaids – certainly not those sparkly vampires that her friend Abby was obsessed with. Even when she’s bitten by a massive animal after a reckless night of teenage adventure and her body begins to change in mystifying ways, she can’t force herself to believe in what she’s convinced is impossible. Little does she realize she’s been infected with a disease a little more permanent than the rabies she feels fortunate to have not contracted. Lycanthropy. Her fierce denial is soundly shattered, however, when she is simultaneously saved and kidnapped by Bastian and his pack. Forced to leave small town Iowa behind and adjust to their way of life in a hidden society, Katherine must also deal with fighting the pull she feels towards the man – or wolf, rather – who has bitten her and disrupted her life so completely.

It isnt easy being an evil genius. Just ask Donovan Grant, author of the Internets first foolproof copyright-protection software. Hollywood adores him, but hes no hero to the millions who loved downloading free copies of their favorite TV shows. Insanely rich, or maybe just insane, he blew his royalties on a private island in the Caribbean where he pursues his not-so-private obsessions, like photographing young ladies bound in expensive leather and posting the results on his no-cost web site, exsx.org. But when your sexual preference is dominance, nothing less than world domination will do. With the help of a wide-eyed apprentice from Glasgow, a ganja-sucking bodyguard, a jaded hacker, and a surly cheerleader-turned-dominatrix named Sindie, Grant is getting ready to launch his revenge on everyone who thinks hes nothing but a one-trick ponyboy who got lucky. Like Carroll Farmer, the take-no-prisoners tech reporter with a few axes to grind, preferably on whomevers tied to her bed tonight. Sparks (and other implements) fly when her editor/former flame sends her across the Atlantic to profile the reclusive Mr. Grant. Carroll is determined to uncover Donovans secrets, but events and emotions conspire to expose a few of her own, resulting in a wild ride through the dark side of dreams made real. Dazzling, occasionally depraved and inevitably breathless, Once Bitten reads like a turbocharged duet between Carl Hiassen and the Marquis de Sade. Award-winning authors Adrian Hunter and Chelsea Shepard have concocted a seriously-sexy caper that spans the globe in search of nice vice, twisted truths, cruel love and freedom in restraint. Fast, fun and funny, Once Bitten puts the bon! back into bondage...where it belongs.
