DISCOVERED, book 2 of the Clan of the Werebear Serial 

The story continues…

Elaina awakens from her night with Cullen only to be herded to hide by the stream as the Clan of the Werebear inspection is at hand. It’s too late for Klesa or her sons to leave the village and Elaina worries as she hides with them. She thought her days of hiding were over.

Elaina vows to persuade the werebears to ask the werewolves for help if the clan brings war to their doors, but Cullen is resistant. It might be their only chance, and another chance for Elaina to see her childhood friend and werewolf Liam again.

As the fever still rages and Elaina gives into her primal needs, she allows herself the freedom to experience both of the brothers as they share her, but how long will it last before she’s forced to make a decision that will change all of their lives forever?

PROTECTED…The werewolf, Samson, tries to protect her from the world by hiding her away in a cabin high in the mountains, refusing even to allow her to “shift.” But when, at the age of eighteen, Elaina is stricken by “the mating fever” and Samson finds her in a compromising position with his grandson, he is forced to confine her even more.

FEVERED…Restricted, hidden away, in full frenzy of the mating fever, and strictly forbidden to mate, Elaina decides it is time she joined her own kind…to find her mate. But meeting the devastatingly handsome were-bears, Cullen and Damon, is dangerous because she is drawn to the both of them …like a bear to honey. The fever is so strong, all she can think about is being in their arms.Torn, Eliana must face one of the most difficult choices of her life: go back with them to their village and chance that they aren’t part of the Clan, or turn her back on the one man who could be her perfect mate in order to remain…HIDDEN.

Madison Johns Paranormal Romances

While I’m most known for my cozy mysteries, I’m currently writing a paranormal romance series. The first book Hidden, clan of the Werebear will be published Wednesday May 14th. This is a novella serials that I have plan there will be three books in the series, but of course with writing you just never know where it will really take you. Tina Adams did the first three covers for me already, and I’ve made a huge investment to get professional covers. I’m completely blow away with how great they look. I plan to do both ebook and print formats.

Even with my senior sleuth mysteries I have pushed the envelope and made them a bit on the naughty side in the first three books, but after that I changed my ways. I can’t help but write like that. I’ve read historical romances in my teens that had plenty of erotica in it and this series has adult content with erotic elements that’s not recommended for anyone under the age of 18. It’s also a shapeshifter romance, but there is a strong plot going on as well. Overall I’m excited for readers to get their hands on these books. I’m going to try and publish them fast as I can so not to let readers wait too long for the next in the series.

Bigfoot in Tawas

Agnes and Eleanor embark on their most challenging case to date, finding Bigfoot!

Agnes isn’t sure what to say when Billy Matlin, hires her to find Bigfoot, and it doesn’t help that Eleanor is hiding in the car. Who is she to say that Bigfoot isn’t real, and lord knows she sure could use a paying gig. Armed with a baggie full of brown hair, Agnes and Eleanor march into the sheriff’s department, but Sheriff Peterson is reluctant to test the hair. Outright refusing to use county resources for a DNA analysis.

Before long, the Department of Natural Resources and the United States Fish and Game Service also both refuse to test the hair. Suggesting that the only way they would investigate is if an endangered species is involved. Never one to be told no, Agnes does the only thing she thinks will get them to change their minds by planting evidence in the form of a road killed Bald Eagle on Billy’s property.

East Tawas is not only overrun with Bigfoot sightings, but it would seem just about everyone they question claims to have seen something mysterious in the woods. When big game hunters roll into town, and with the DNR and U.S. Fish and Game fighting over the brown hair, not to mention a reality show offering up a ten million dollar prize to whoever finds Bigfoot, it’s up to Agnes and Eleanor to find out the truth, which is further complicated when Billy Matlin mysteriously disappears.

New Release ~ Target of Death

It’s been almost two years since I made a splash onto the publishing world as a self published author, and now, I finally have a new cozy mystery series, Target of Death. This series features one of my readers, Tammy Rodrigue, and I think most of my readers will love this one just as much as they do my Agnes Barton Senior Sleuths Mystery Series. This time around the sleuth is younger, but there is also a senior citizen, Margarita, on hand to help out when it comes to sleuthing. 

cover

When Tammy Rodrigue, known as Louisiana Sassy on the archery circuit, rolled into Bear Paw, Michigan, for the archery competition, Tournament of Trouble, she never expected to be considered a suspect in a murder investigation. Sure, the victim was killed via an arrow through his heart with the same white and pink fletches (feathers) like Tammy uses, but she had just come to town. Not only that, but she was just pulled out of a ditch by a mysterious man wearing a ski mask. Most women might be frightened, but not Tammy. She’s tough as nails and not about to be intimidated by anyone, not even the local archery hot shot, Daniel Adams, who turned out to be the man under the mask.

Tammy and her tag-along friend, Dixie, slid their way into town amidst a snowstorm and took shelter at the local restaurant, Hidden Pass, run by a kind senior citizen, Margarita Hickey, who offers them a place to stay. As it were, Margarita was down on her luck and her business had gone on hard times. She’s impressed when Tammy spices up the chili she ordered with her own brand of spices that she always carries with her. It’s then that a plan is hatched, and Tammy and Dixie devise a way to help Margarita by creating Cajun recipes that Margarita could serve during the winter festival.

As Tammy and Dixie begin to poke into Sheriff Simon Price’s murder investigation, they discover there are more secrets in this town than what’s hiding out in the Bayou back home. Margarita, not one to be left out in the cold, tags along, too. The victim, Clayton Percy, has cheated on his wife and has been flashing cash all over town, but nobody seems to know why. Or are they keeping it a secret? Will Tammy and Dixie be able to solve this mystery in time before the Tournament of Trouble, or will Tammy finally miss her mark?

Unfinished Business Giveaway ~ Carolyn Riddler Aspenson

I’m welcoming author Carolyn Riddler Aspenson on my blog today and she has a great giveaway that I know you’ll love. 

Unfinished Business

ANGELA PANTHER HAS A PERFECT LIFE: A lovely home, an attentive, successful husband, two reasonably behaved children, a devoted dog and a lot of coffee and cupcakes. But while her life might border on mundane, she’s got it under control. Until her mother, Fran dies-and returns as a ghost. It seems Fran’s got some unfinished business and she’s determined to get it done. Now Fran’s got some nifty celestial superpowers and isn’t opposed to using them to levy a little ghostly retribution on her granddaughter’s frienemies and even her own daughter, which doesn’t make Angela happy. While Angela’s shocked and grateful to have her mother back, she’s not thrilled about the portal to the afterlife Fran opened upon her return. Now every ghost in town is knockin’ on Angela’s psychic door, looking for help-and it’s a royal pain in the butt. Now Angela’s got to find a way to balance her family life with her new gift and keep her mother in line. And it’s a lot for one woman to handle.
