Flashback: Bad Moon Rising (Contest)
Thursday, February 8th, 2024

UPDATE: The winner is…Mary McCoy!

I’m wrapping up work today on Malcolm! So, this will be a quick post. I have to do a final read-through, format it, and upload the story to Amazon. And then I can take tomorrow off! Guess what I’ll be doing? Yes! Playing with my Gelli plates with my daughter. Can’t wait! But work first!

I have a ton of books that I’ve published over the years. You may be most familiar with my bounty hunters and the few Brotherhood Protectors stories I’ve written. I have several series you could binge on if you like, but I also have a ton of standalone stories. Here’s one of them. I kinda wrote myself into this story…

Bad Moon Rising

Bad Moon Rising

On a whim, romance author DiDi Devereaux decides to travel to remote Louisiana bayou country to take possession of a house she inherited from a reclusive relative. But before she reaches her destination, she drives her car into a ditch to avoid a large animal that leaps into her path. Rescue comes in the form of a sexy sheriff, whose gruff demeanor seems to hide a feral attraction. As DiDi settles into her new home she finds herself torn between her attraction to the sheriff and the raw, handsome bad boy whose offer to help her renovate her home is a little too convenient and tempting.

Nothing in Bayou Noir is what it seems. When strange things begin to happen, her natural curiosity leads her into danger…

Note: This is a standalone story. No cliff-hangers. Just lovely, shapeshifting Cajuns in the bayou…

Read an excerpt here!


Yes, it’s a panther-shifter story! And it was so fun to write. Read the excerpt; you won’t be sorry! The heroine is me—if I was younger and beautiful and if panther-shifters actually existed… LOL

For a chance to win a $5 Amazon gift card, let me know whether you still love shifters. I haven’t written one in a while, but I’ve been looking for something that feels fresh. Tell me what you’d love to see!

    I love shifter books as long as its a fresh take on them or unusual shifters like hedgehogs or something, not the same old wolves and big cats.

    I alternate what type of books I read – historical, contemporary, suspense, cozy, paranormal – there’s always room for shifters.

    I still love shifters. I would love to see a story about the shifter beginnings. For example, a lab experiment that creates the first but maybe the scientists don’t know it. They no longer get sick or injured or age as quickly as their friends. Instead the changes show up in their children.

    It’s been ages since I read a shifter story. I think that the last one was a dragon shifter which was fun.

    I love Shifter story and set in the Bayou was awesome. Not so much into witch stories. A favorite Shifter series is by another favorite author who writes her Shifter groups that run a Zoo where the Shifters also pose as the animals of the zoo as they try to find there fated Mates.

    I’m still a fan of shifters stories. I confess that something that has cracked me up recently is seeing some authors’ takes on unusual animals, like otters or gerbils or the like, and seeing what they decide to do with the “science” of it is entertaining!

    I was skeptical about shifters, until I read my first book and I have loved them since, thank you for the opportunity
