Shyanne McDaniel, a young widow and mother of two small boys, loses her heart to Meat, an exotic dancer and alpha liger shifter, but dating another species proves a challenge.
While trying to figure out how to deal with an alpha shifter that likes the word "obey" way too much for her liking, Shy juggles raising her twin sons, taking local college classes, dealing with an adoptive family that leans heavily toward odd, and her job. She finds herself working for a man called Cannibal and battling for Meat's attention from a cover model shifter, all the while trying not to think too much about her gift prize threesome fantasy weekend, Meat's nun fetish, and her penchant for finding trouble.
Finding love again is never easy, and doing so with an alpha shifter only makes for more challenges. Can they work out their differences and love one another for who they are?

I wiggled on Meat’s lap as he licked at the ticklish spot just behind my ear. The movements earned a groan from him and gave me a strong hint what his near future intentions were, if the large bump under my rear had anything to do with it.
A second later, Meat spun me halfway around, wrapping one arm behind my shoulders, while the other slipped under my knees. He stood swiftly and easily, cradling me as he strode away from the table.
“Don’t forget her spanking.” Ducian’s voice carried across the room. “She’s been anticipating it all afternoon.”
I gasped and looked up into my boyfriend’s face and immediately forgot the sassy comeback to the vampire’s reminder.
He looked intense. Deep blue eyes flashed, a growl resounded from his throat. His lips pulled back in an almost grimace, reminding me of the Wild Kingdom episode about lion matings. Meat carried the same facial expression as a male lion scenting a female right before he climbed on board for some serious species reproduction.
My belly somersaulted.
I had a strong suspicion Meat’s inner kitty prowled just under the human skin, snarling in demand for things his way. The biting used as punishment for not seeking his protection, the strong control, and the predatory attitude all shouted one thing. Feline displeasure.
Which meant I was about to get a quick lesson in female submission to an alpha male liger intent on staking his claim while proving his dominance once and for all.
I bit back a whimper of strong desire.
He carried me into the bedroom and shut the door firmly behind him. His lips sealed over mine in a sizzling hot preview of his intentions. Opening wide, his tongue sought the very recesses of my mouth, flicking and tasting. I nibbled his bottom lip and returned the favor, not pulling away until a lack of oxygen forced me.
Only then did he deposit me on the waiting king-sized bed. Gaining my balance, I scooted toward the center and waited.

Author Bio: Growing up in the Midwest, I began reading romance novels in high school, immediately falling in love with the genre, to the point where I decided to write professionally for a career. However, that dream splattered against a brick wall and resulting quick death in my first writing class in college when my professor told me bluntly that I wasn’t any good at it. I shifted gears quickly, and left my writing dreams behind, eventually settling on being a nurse.
A few years back, I stumbled across a fan-fiction writing site on a favorite author’s webpage. I began to read stories others wrote, not only making some wonderful close friends from the experience, but also, really learning to write for the very first time. Here I was able to share short stories, practice my writing skills, and truly develop into a writer. More than that, the experience allowed me to revitalize my dream, as I rediscovered joy in writing.
When I’m not working or writing, I enjoy working in the garden, canning, and seeing my backyard as a living canvas for my whimsical landscaping, and, of course, reading romance novels.
