8 sentence sunday

It's been a while since I did one of these but since I have a new book out I thought I'd offer a little taste. It's a WW2 set m/m paranormal story set in occupied France.

Renny has been running from soldiers in his wolf form. Injured he is looking for a place to hide and something to eat. He is tempted by the blacksmith's chickens...
The cold air bit into Renny’s bare skin, and his thigh throbbed. The bullet had been expelled when he shifted, and the wound was freshly closed. But it still ached and burned as his body continued to heal. The dead chicken in front of him no longer looked quite so tantalizing, and his mouth tasted like dirt and feathers. He was sure there was an incriminating feather stuck to his stubble, but he didn’t dare move in case the man with the rifle shot him. The brand on the back of his hand no longer looked fresh and raw. The scar was well healed but still red. His night vision was better than a human’s and he could see the scar, as well as feel it branded into his soul—the fleur-de-lys forever marking him as loup-garou by the Vichy soldiers. The man with the rifle stood there, staring with his mouth open as though he couldn’t quite believe what he’d just seen.

New Release: A Wolf's Resistance

It's release day! My WW2 werewolf story is now out. The research for this story was so interesting--I think I spent as long researching as I did writing. I hope you enjoy.

Renny knew the risks when he started working for the RĂ©sistance, but he never expected to be captured and branded as a loup-garou and traitor to the State of France by the occupying Germans. Now on the run and wounded, he needs a place to hide and heal. A blacksmith’s on the edge of a small town looks like the ideal place.

At first Marc doesn’t want to believe Renny is a shapeshifter, but his curiosity and desire to help outweighs his caution. It feels good to lie to the soldiers. Better to see the heat in Renny’s eyes.

One night together makes Marc realize he wants more from life than hot coals and cold nights, but with no end to the war in sight, neither man can make promises.
