When the Moon Shines
(Six Shooter and a Shifter, #1)
Publication date: April 1st 2022
Genres: Adult, Fantasy, Western
Welcome to Traitor’s Den. I hope you like it here, because there’s no leaving the small western town that’s more theme park than authentic. Once you walk through the portal, you’re stuck as a boot heel in a half foot of mud.
I’ve never seen the outside world and I don’t care. The cannon-toting, trigger-happy residents here are like family, even if most of them are a few spoons short of a full set. Eventually, everyone grows on you, kinda like nail fungus. But the booze flows freely, and Tiger keeps me company. He’s as much a prisoner as I am.
I don’t figure there’s much point in wanting what you can never have. I’ll eventually accept one of my boyfriend’s marriage proposals and then keep policing the one-way town while I pop out the babies he wants. I was born knowing how to make chicken salad out of chicken shit.
At least I won’t be bored. Denners aren’t fans of following the rules, and the longer they’re in town, the worse they behave, thanks to the spell that keeps us all trapped here.
Just when I think I’ve made my peace with my lot, the portal pops open and two men shoot through, throwing punches before their feet even finish landing in my town. When they finally look at me, all I see is problems. Big, ginormous, entirely-too-handsome problems. And that’s before I even take into account the little “surprise” they brought through with them.
No one’s ever looked at me the way they do.
They aren’t the kind of men who back down after claiming something.
Did I say I had my life in Traitor’s Den all figured out? Hell, I couldn’t have been more wrong.
* A sexy fantasy western with growly shifters, sketchy vamps, peculiar mages and creatures, and one badass cowgirl sheriff. Within this small town, magic and gossip flow as freely as whiskey, and work and pleasure are nearly the same thing. Weird things happen on the regular in Traitor’s Den. Come and join the quirky family, where everyone’s packing. Oh, and don’t mind the tiger.
“I don’t wanna give it back, Lo,” Jony whined, when I’d never heard the witch whine before. Cuss up an F-bomb-free storm? Yes. Rip someone a new one? Definitely. Threaten to shoot someone for a petty disagreement? More than once. But complain like a five-year-old eyeing a forbidden lollipop? Never.
As she’d been doing for the past several minutes, she ran her hands appreciatively up and down my body, slowing to savor my curves.
“Don’t make me swap with ya,” she pleaded. “I had to wrestle Emmaline Bay to the ground when she took it from me, pretendin’ it was some accident.” She rolled her eyes—my eyes—and snorted. “Like I’d believe that load o’ bull-honkey. Does she think I was born yesterday?”
I sighed, doing nothing to hide my lack of patience.
Jony pointed my leg and admired it. “It don’t matter none though. Ya know she ain’t no match for me. I got way more fight. I whup my own ass twice a week, just to stay sharp.”
