Christmas Wintry Howls and Yowls, ShapeShifter Lovers.
Above is the Christmas Card my wonderful sister sent. I love it.!
I hope your holiday season is merry and beautiful.
Most of us need hope and goodness at this point in time, the end of 2018.
That's one reason I am currently writing a Christmas ShapeShifter Romance short story, as I've talked about in the past two posts.
Celebrating Christmas, the holiday season, is a very festive and loving time in the small town of Moonrise Lake. Everyone is included, shifters of every type and stripe, supernaturals of all kinds, and yes, humans with their own special powers. Humans know how to LOVE. And that is prized by All in the Peak.
As my heroine, Karyssa, learns early on Wolf Peak Territory is a survival community. 'Course, she has no clue yet that she's surrounded by shapeshifters who created their own self-sufficient world simply to protect themselves from numerous, highly dangerous enemies--to survive and thrive...and yes, to enjoy life as they raise their families.
HERE'S A LITTLE UNEDITED SNIPPET, the hero's POV...
"Not worried, Karyssa. I'm a wealthy man." He'd pointedly told her, not to impress, but to witness her reaction.
"Oh, I see." She avoided his gaze. "I still want to pay...pay my own way."
"Of course," he answered in an offhand manner. "I respect anyone who works for a livin', pays their own way."
Standing, he offered his hand. Her blue-blood breeding took over before she could deny it. Karyssa accepted his assistance like the lady she'd been trained to be all of her life.
Realizing it, she flushed. Yet didn't deny him by jerking her hand away. "From what I've seen so far, it seems like most people here are wealthy enough."
"We don't allow poverty here in town, or in the whole of Wolf Peak Territory. There's always a skill we encourage, or a job for anyone in need.
"Truth is, Karyssa," he continued, walking her out of the room, "there is a massive subterranean structure that's been built for years now. Inside is every type of business, shop, restaurant. I bet you'd like the Midnight Stardust supperclub. Dancin', fine eats, swing band music, singers."
"Are you saying this is an enormous survival community?" She paused her steps, gazing up at him.
