I am so thrilled that my Christmas novella, Very Friendly Beasts, is finally out! This one was a hard one to write, but in the end I am very proud of it. All the blood, sweat, and tears that went into this work payed off in the end and I really hope that my readers agree. This is of course the long awaited sequel to my other Christmas novella, Not So Silent Night. Both stories are only .99 cents and free on Kindle Unlimited! They are a great way to treat yourself and steam up these chilly December nights!
And now how about an exclusive excerpt from Very Friendly Beasts?
Mikhail sighed as he hailed a cab. Normally, he would want to lose himself in the women and men of Paris, but with the ever present face of his impending responsibility looming over him, he couldn’t even muster up the energy for a little naughtiness. No, he would find his fox first and insure the Gathering, and then maybe he could have let loose.
Despite the task at hand and this being a trip of duty rather than leisure, it was hard not to admire the beauty of Paris all around him. After checking into his hotel, Mikhail had time to kill before going to a fashion gala where he might be able to corner his missing fox. He found himself wandering towards the Eiffel tower, loving how beautifully lit the structure was, the laughs coming from those skating on the ice rink there, the smells and sights from the little Christmas market that enticed him to shop for some Christmas gifts to take home. Yes, there really was no place like Paris. He only wished he could be sharing it with someone right now. “Next time I come to Paris, I will have chosen a mate,” he said to himself, not sure if that thought cheered or terrified him.
