Book Description: 
The first coming of chaos. Twelve
thousand years ago, members of a more advanced race crossed into our dimension
when the barriers temporarily collapsed.
Trapped in our world, the aliens,
who were also shifters, built structures that eventually caused the great flood
and the sinking of Atlantis.
Some of the alien DNA survived in
progeny that carried an untraceable shifter gene, dormant until awakened by
mating with a full blooded werewolf.

Excerpt: 
Shortly after the incident, the event came to be known as May Day simply because it occurred on the first of May. The term would be forever after altered to represent the pandemonium that followed the dimension overlap that left so many stranded. It worked because it was a good choice because of disassociating the incident with high emotion.
Some from other places were left here. Some that belonged here had disappeared and, even though every city had a centralized location where loved ones could post photos and leave flowers or burning votives, everybody knew somebody who had lost someone. And the world had been turned on end in the blink of an eye.
The conventional wisdom about withholding news panic-inducing news from the public was bypassed. Cover up was impossible in this case and overnight, everyone knew that we experience reality alongside many others, invisible to us. Everyone also learned conclusively that other species exist in those realities.
One of the species that had been stranded in this dimension were canine shifters, werewolves as they were sometimes called in fantasy. Being disinclined to panic, the werewolves, each individually, used their cunning to quickly assess their circumstances and determine what was required to survive. Utilizing their innate talent for strategy, and seduction, they were able to identify missing humans who were a reasonably close match to anthropoid bodies, were without families and were, basically, antisocial. Being shrewd as well as cunning, they made matches with candidates with financial assets.
New lives could be built in a new world without money, but money could go a long way toward building walls of privacy and providing the one thing they needed most, after company, of course. That thing was territory. Freedom.
The government made it almost too easy by publishing an open database of the missing and requested that corrections be made if someone listed was present and accounted for. Each shifter made his choice then notified the government that they were not missing. They were sorry for the misunderstanding, but had been sailing in the Caribbean or fishing in the Gulf or on an archeological expedition in the Amazon.
By the time the dust of the catastrophe began to settle, seven shifters had found each other through a curious intersection of tech and primeval instinct. Each of the seven, while dealing with his own personal disorientation and sense of loss, quickly identified the Pacific Northwest as the most suitable habitat on the North American continent. Millions of acres of national parks and wildlife reserves was attractive. That, and the cooler temperatures, made the locale almost ideal as shifter temperatures run a full three degrees warmer than humans.
It took only a few weeks to come across each other. Shifters in wolf form can cover great distances. In so doing they came across the scent of others who were similar to themselves if not identical, but definitely distinctive from wild wolves. And each felt immeasurable relief to find others. For social animals, abject solitude would be a sentence to hell.
That was one of the reasons why Ken Sahabe was admitted to the pack without hesitation even though he was not a canine, but a spotted hyena. The pack decided Ken’s social and hunting needs were close enough and admitted him.

 

The hard wiring of pack behavior hadn’t changed for millennia. However, the language used to describe certain facts of pack life was altered for modern times so that it seemed more politic. For example, rather than saying the alpha decided, which was true, the thought would be expressed as ‘the pack decided’. In Ken’s case, though the actual wolves didn’t have a real vote, they accepted him like one of their own species.

Excerpt:
Lathen put his
hand on her shoulder. “Where’d you go? Been sitting there, knife extended above
the pumpkin, for fifteen minutes. Are you going to carve it or just threaten
it?” He guffawed and wrapped his large callused hand around hers holding the
knife, brought it to the pumpkin, and made carving motions, then tried to hand
her an erasable marker. “Try using this first.”
She pushed his
hand away and frowned at him. “Oh, stop it. I was thinking about this evening
after the celebration. I don’t want anything to go wrong.”

“It won’t. We
have a solid plan and several powerful witches to bring it to fruition. So
relax and enjoy the festivities of your favorite holiday. But the decorations
will be lacking if you don’t get to carving. We need twenty-five
jack-o-lanterns, by your own count, for the gazebo and surrounding area tables
in the town square. I have the candles and holders for each right here.” As he
swung the bag in front of Pepper, the tinkling sound of glass clinking together
had her frowning.

Tagline: Spheres of power usher a new and dangerous secret
Book Description:
Leader of an elite psychic team, Cole Courtland is a shape-shifting wolf with a deep connection to the power of the Earth. His investigation of a string of mysterious murders throws him into the dangerous world of the Quytel and leads him straight to Brianna Doherty’s door.
Bri is plagued by vicious nightmares of death and pain that leave her wondering about her own history. When her home is under siege, an enigmatic stranger appears out of nowhere to save her.
Thrown together in a tangle of desire and danger, they are pulled deeper into the secretive world of the Quytel, an ancient order charged with maintaining the balance of psychic and paranormal power on earth. Staying one step ahead of those who would destroy them, they struggle to unravel the truth of Bri’s past and her family legacy. As her relationship with Cole grows stronger, the reality of who Bri is threatens to tear them apart.
Excerpt:
Bri knew him. It
had been his face in her nightmare. His presence had soothed and calmed her
that night. He stood right in front of her now and had just ripped the door off
a room no one should have been able to find.
Please don’t let
him be my enemy, she whispered in her mind. Who else could he be?
Holding the gun
more firmly locked on her target, Bri hoped it deterred him because she knew
she would never be able to shoot this beautiful man.
“Are you going
to shoot me?” His voice, strong and clear, didn’t sound too worried.
Bri shivered. A
sharp stab of desire shot straight through her, and at first she didn’t really
register his words.
“We don’t have
much time,” he pressed.
A thud
downstairs startled her. The man moved fast. She had no time to react before he
snatched the 9-millimeter easily out of her hand. He tucked it into the
waistband of his jeans and grabbed her other arm.
His touch was
electric. When he took a step closer, he crowded her and she could almost feel
the hard muscles of his broad chest. The loss of her gun left her completely
vulnerable.
He placed a
finger lightly against her trembling lips and her stomach did a slow roll.
“Don’t move. Don’t yell.” He whispered the words softly into the shell of her
ear. “I’m here to help you, Brianna. You have to trust me.”
She shivered.
How did he know her name? She felt trapped, caught in an overpowering spell
that heated her body. She was tall, but he was taller. And gorgeous, much
better looking than she remembered from her nightmare. A part of her recognized
she should be far more frightened of him than she was.
“There are men
downstairs tearing your house apart right now. I have no idea why they’re searching
for you. I can get you out of here, but we have to go now.” A quiet command.
“I’m not here to hurt you. Trust me.”
Bri took a
defensive step away. He didn’t let her go far, silver-gray eyes holding hers,
willing her to believe him. The secret passageways inside the walls of the
house would be too risky now that the room had been exposed.
