A Warning from someone who knows...
“We all like to believe we are masters of our fate. However, usually it isn’t true. Somewhere, a person exists, sometimes completely unknown to you, whose slightest action impacts your life.”
Jason Connors, the head of the FBI, becomes involved in a simple immigration case in which a doctor from Africa has married an American woman so he can enter the United States. Some claim the doctor is not human, but rather a cat-like alien species that can mimic the human form. Determined to discover what is really going on, he sends his brightest agent, Carmella Ginkabo to Africa, to uncover the facts. Courageously, she travels deep into the jungle to learn the truth from the first of this species who originally landed on Earth two hundred years prior. Her discovery alters the future of Earth forever.
Catina’s muscles ached from straining against the vines that bound her wrists to the stakes. Sweat rolled down her sides, then dripped onto the thick green bed of the jungle floor. Hours had passed since the Marobi tribe had stripped her naked and tied her, kneeling on all fours, like a sheep waiting for slaughter.
A sharp pain on her thigh jolted her from her exhaustion. She tossed her head back, swinging her long sweaty strands of blonde hair against her side, much as a horse uses its tail to swat away flies. The scent of her sweat-drenched body seemed to attract every damn insect within five miles. Their constant biting and burrowing in her skin was far worse than what she initially thought the Marobis planned to do.
When they cut away her clothes and pushed her down on her hands and knees, she expected to be raped or sodomized. Yet, once they had her secured and defenseless, the men silently disappeared into the dense jungle. That had been hours ago. At least she felt it had been hours ago. Time had a way of distorting when insects burrowed in your flesh.
Her body went rigid as she felt the cool caress of a snake crossing her leg. Her weary mind ran through the countless deadly snakes that inhabited this jungle as she remained perfectly still. A hard blow and piercing pain struck her thigh. Bitten.
I’m going to die. Staked to the ground like a sheep to slaughter. I’m going to die.

Cat Refuge is a unique story which tells of shifters who have settled on Earth. They are stronger and more intelligent than ordinary humans. They are here with a specific purpose and set about to ensure the survival of their species.
Ms. O'Connor has the best imagination as she weaves tales which keep you on the edge of your seat or up at night reading. I've learned that her characters will dig their ways into my heart, even if they aren't always on the good side.
Cat Refuge is a story with many twists and turns. Just when you think the characters will finally find a happy ending, another crisis changes things. Luckily, Ms. O'Connor has a heart and does give the reader (and her wonderful characters) a happy ending...but it is the first in a series so there's bound to be more danger ahead!
A great read for fans of fantasy and shifters. You'll not be able to look at your cat in the same way!

I'm a big Gerard Bulter fan and this movie doesn't disappoint but he's not the breakout star of the movie... You can catch my review HERE.
We all have crushes on the guys in a band. We dream of singing alongside them or having them sing to us. But what happens when one girl's dream comes true? Can she find a way to bridge her friendship with the guys or will the tour go up in flames?
Mackenzie Tanner was living the dream.
At least that’s what she thought.
When Mackenzie Tanner met world-famous boy band Dear Juliet while songwriting in Nashville, Tennessee, she never imagined it would lead to being the opening act on their worldwide tour, or the broken heart which would follow.
As they play to sold-out audiences across the globe, Mackenzie realizes her dream may not be what she thought it was. Singing with the boy she loves and the boy she's supposed to love leads to a tangled mess.
But Nashville is on the horizon...
Mackenzie sang into the microphone, throwing as much attitude and energy into the song as her tired body could muster. “I’ll be your shotgun, you’ll be my trigger. If we’re going down, we’ll go together.”
When the song was over, she waited for the red light over the door to flash off before reaching down for her water bottle. She heard the track click off in her headphones, replaced with a voice she’d grown quite accustomed to over the past ten hours.
“That was great,” praised Eugene Worsham, her EP’s producer. “You nailed the last chorus and the tag, but I feel like you lost momentum on the bridge…”
Declan Collins, manager of the world-famous boy band Dear Juliet, and now Mackenzie Tanner, had flown Eugene in from Nashville to work with her in the London studio. Eugene was a budding producer in Nashville and had the perfect country-pop edge she needed. She and Eugene had bonded immediately over their mutual love for Johnny Cash.
“Let’s give it another go,” he instructed, in his easygoing Southern drawl.
It made Mackenzie feel less alienated in the sea of British accents she’d been surrounded with since she’d stepped off the plane that morning. “I’ll punch you in three bars before the line, okay?”
“Sounds good,” she replied, giving him a thumbs up through the soundproof glass that separated them.
The music started up in her headphones, and when the lyrics began, she sang as passionately as she could. Again, Eugene thought she could do better.
It was tedious work, but Mackenzie loved it—which was a good thing, because she was only one day into her four weeks of intense preparation before joining her friends William Bishop, Cooper Hart, Jacob Turner, and Riley Knight—collectively known as Dear Juliet—on tour.
