Nick Caputo is a wolf shifter, and the new clan enforcer. He knows with every fiber of his being that Violet Tago (a shifter that can't shift) is his mate. One kiss. One simple taste and she'll be his.
Since arriving in Pepper Valley, Violet has ignored any burgeoning attraction for Nick, and instead crushes big time on her brother's best friend, Brody.
Brody Westwood, also a wolf shifter, has never thought twice about his best friend's kid sister. The fact is, he wants nothing to do with any supernatural being. After seeing his best friend, Griffin, fall in love, marry, and have children, Brody decides it's time to settle down with a family of his own. When a new curvaceous beauty shows up in town, the attraction practically crackles the air between them. But Leah Cross isn't human...or a shifter.
Two couples with undeniable attraction. Under the Colorado sky, they are Star Crossed Shifters.

She watched him glance around the living room before his eyes settled on hers again. Her panties dampened. She backed up against the door, her palms flat against the cold metal, and he stalked her, trapping her in place with his arms on either side of her head. Her heartbeat sped up as his eyes flashed yellow for one short moment, and she knew his wolf was close to the surface.
"Leah, I'm going to kiss you. After that, I'm going to lick your pussy until you come, and then I'll flip you over and take you like my wolf demands."
She whimpered at his words, her panties now thoroughly soaked. "'Kay," was all she managed to say before his lips descended on hers, hard and unyielding. She opened for his probing tongue and a shock coursed through her body, curling her toes, as she tasted him. He tasted of peppermint and coffee, but underneath that, home.

AUTHOR TOP TEN WRITING TIPS
1. Write about something that interests you, something that you like to read.
For me, I love to read shifters, aliens, cowboys, sports…ok, everything romance! So far, I have written shifters, aliens, contemporary, and ghost romances!
2. Find your writing inspiration style.
I am a visual person, so it helps me to find an actor/model/sports person/etc. to base a character's looks. When I get stuck, I can look at some pictures, or even watch some interviews, and usually come up with ideas.
3. If you get stuck (or have writer's block), read back over the story so far.
Not only will you edit along the way, this should also help you to get ideas of what you have not covered yet, or where the next logical step is for the story.
4. Never give up!
If you lack inspiration, put the story aside for a day or two. Start something else if you must. I guarantee the characters will start demanding you return (in your head). Yes, my characters get VERY demanding! Especially if I am writing something else and they think it should be their turn to get their own story. Bossy characters!
5. Do not write flowery words or add a bunch of stuff that does not further the story.
Waxing poetic just to lengthen a story to what you want it to be is never good, and readers will call you out on it.
6. Find good beta-readers.
People you trust, that will give you honest opinions. You don't want "Yes" men or women, you want honesty. But you must also take the criticism well, and know they are trying to help you make the best story.
7. Find a good editor, or two!
I feel like this is the most important step of all, because readers are super quick to judge if a story is poorly written with wrong words/grammar/etc.
8. Read other people's work.
Read often, even when writing your own story. I am not saying to take ideas from someone else, but the flow of creativity is high when reading, and it can help inspire you for your own story!
9. Since I edit/format quite often: learn how to write properly!
A story needs TWO spaces between sentences, and turn on the "show/hide paragraph marks"! Do not add extra spaces at the end of a paragraph. Those TWO things will make your life (of the life of your editor/formator) so much easier for publication!
10. Enjoy the experience!
When I wrote my first story for publication, I was certain that I'd be the only one reading it…ever! While I have read it more than a dozen times, I never tire of it! It is a great little short story (Shifted For Love), and it proves to me that I was right! I wrote the story for myself, because I enjoy writing. The fact that I stuck with it and published it still makes me proud! Absolutely awe-inspiring though, is the fact that others have read it - and continue to read other stories written by me! The first time someone tells you how much they enjoyed the story, and they leave a review - nothing but pure JOY!
ONE EXTRA TIP FOR READERS: If you enjoy a story, write a review. If it made you laugh/cry/angry - in a good way, find a way to contact the author. Facebook PM or twitter, whatever. I promise you that it will make an author's day if you tell them how much you enjoyed their story!
