Riot Cofield is a bad-boy mountain lion shifter who scales mountains like fences. He belongs IN the Natahala Forest, but not TO it, and he resents “the Cause” because it turns normal, sweet women into a conniving, savage witches – switches – who will do anything to kill a vampire.
Riot tried out the Cause (after all, he is a shifter) but after getting used and discarded twice, he’s over it. Over and done with the Cause and everything in it, including Resperanza, the extraordinary, not-there-a-month-ago, magical house and command center. So he moved out, and oh yeah, he quit the Cause, too.
Until he has no choice but to step into a fight for a flagging switch he’s never seen before, throwing her his knife that she can’t seem to let go of. But the real kicker comes when she knows his name. It’s his secret high school crush, the only woman ever special enough to make Riot want to straighten out his renegade ways.
Gemma, the lost love of his life, is a switch?
“Love of his life” enough to move back into Resperanza? Maybe, but enough to support the Cause with everything he has? No. Never.
Then why is he delivering sweet, inquisitive, gorgeous, green-glowing Gemma to the one place he would never want her to belong?
And why does he get the feeling she’s about to blow the doors off this whole operation?
Flint and Goldie are so much fun! Flint is a growly bear who likes to cook, who takes care of his brother, the only family he has left. Goldie is proper, smart, devoted to her sister and running. Running from life, running from her sister’s stalker. Running from so much.
And BAM! She runs right into Flint’s car while she’s chasing a vampire down the street.
So now he has to figure out a way to get her into The Cause before he splits for his own revenge plan.
But fate has other plans for both of them. Heartbound, much, Flint? That’s ok, it comes with a lot of perks.

IT. WAS. AWESOME!
Best book you’ve written yet.
Yes, it was a more complex story line but i had no trouble following it. I think your worry that it was above your skill set is unfounded. If you felt stretched and shaken, you certainly rose to the occasion. I did not feel any of it weak or lacking in strength of writing skill. I do think it the best you’ve written yet.
I laughed a little, cried a little and just couldn’t put it down. The bouncing through time set the stage for the end too. And the wolves, Butterfly and Nowl, talking to their human halves?! I think made it more poignant. I am anxious to learn if they teach others to do that. It could be another weapon in the arsenal against the evil one.
You absolutely had to start with Harlan’s surly anger and heartache-beyond-measure. How else could the fierce and equally brutal joy be felt at the end? And his sense of betrayal over Jaggar, what a way to set up Jaggar’s book. I cannot wait. I will have tissues ready.
And Troy! Oh thank you for letting him out of his wolf skin. I so want him and Trent to be well and happy. I think Troy’s story will be filled with all kinds of witticisms and can’t wait.
Those complainers are idiots that cannot appreciate something written above the 6th grade level. This was a grown up story. And you did a fantastic job. Your “gut”or whatever drives you to create in the way and depth that you did is right on target. Trust. It.
It was soooooo worth the wait!
