The Turning Season

For Karadel, being a shape-shifter has always been a reality she couldn’t escape. Even though she’s built a safe life as a rural veterinarian, with a close-knit network of shifter and human friends who would do anything for her, she can’t help but wish for a chance at being normal.

When she’s not dealing with her shifts or caring for her animal patients, she attempts to develop a drug that will help shifters control their changes – a drug that might even allow them to remain human forever.

But her comfortable life is threatened by two events: she meets an ordinary man who touches her heart, and her best friend is forced to shift publicly with deadly consequences.

Now Karadel must decide whom to trust: her old friends or her new love.

The obvious suspect was Nita Moline, who claimed she discovered the bodies, rushed up on deck and fainted. However, nobody had seen her come aboard. And through the tangled web of evidence, there seemed to be more than one mystery. Fortunately for Frank Duryea, his wife’s grandfather – the black sheep of a wild family – came for a visit and got in everybody’s way.

Like a Hole in the Head

Like a Hole in the Head

Jay Benson had been one of the US Army’s top snipers. In Vietnam he’d killed 82 Vietcong. But making the School of Shooting he’d taken over outside Paradise City pay was a tougher proposition than the Vietnamese jungle.

Olura

Olura Manoli is a lovely creature, though perhaps a little foolish in her friendship with an African prime minister whom she accompanies to Spain without police protection.
