But when his companion, Avery Ivy Laurent, grows closer to Jack, an investigator for the Institute of Scientific Study, Candy can t hide his jealousy. Nor his own interest in Jack.

When Jack gets called in to help the City M police department investigate a series of violently murdered companions, both Candy and Ivy brace for trouble. But nothing prepares them for Candy becoming the prime suspect.

In a future landscape of corrupt government officials, brutal BDSM crimes, and a host of dark creatures, Candy, Ivy, and Jack must work together to find the killer, save themselves and learn how to trust each other."

2016 Rainbow Awards: Unbidden Dragon by Louisa Kelley (168-07-04-2016)

Unbidden Dragon by Louisa Kelley
Lesbian Paranormal Romance
Publisher: Loose Id LLC (May 23, 2016)
Amazon Kindle: Unbidden Dragon

Maeven is on a mission. One big and bold enough for her Fieri, and important enough to gain her a trip off Dracan, the secret sanctuary of the dragon shape-shifters. Success in her once-in-a-lifetime challenge means everything--respect, honor, and the bestowal of her full powers. Not to mention doing something vital for the survival of her species.

She’s given strict rules of behavior for living in Earth society. Rule number one: keep her true nature hidden. Rule number two: no emotional involvement with humans, despite the age-old, near-irresistible attraction between the two races.

Then Maeven meets plucky, devious, adorable Frankie. Who, as it turns out, accidentally, shockingly, shape-shifted--the night before. Ah. So much for the rules.

Frankie is frustrated with her slightly larcenous life not going anywhere in particular. One fateful weekend, she camps alone in the mountains to gain fresh perspective--with a little help from a baggie of something special. That afternoon, in a crazed, furious confrontation with hunters, Frankie accidentally shape-shifts into a dragon--

--And discovers a race of magical beings who insist she’s one, too. Then there's the shining, gorgeous, redhead who promises to teach her so much.

Lon Ewing snowboarded in and turned economist Corey Levigne’s life upside down, introducing him to a world he didn’t know existed. Corey’s still adjusting to a boyfriend who shifts into an otter and raids the koi pond—and now Lon says Corey’s department chair is a werewolf?

Wolves at the university, wolves in the bank—across Lon’s desk sits Professor Melvin Vadas and his hench-wolves, demanding a construction loan for the pack’s new lodge in the mountains. There’s just one little problem: the proposed building site is home to a breeding population of rare fish.

What do wolves care for stupid human rules, an otter who’d barely make a good snack, or one pesky man determined to protect the environment? Once they’re snout to snout with Corey and Lon there’s more than silverscale dace on the Endangered Species list.

Includes Tail Slide

Fresh powder snow and running water in the Colorado back country call Lon like the moon calls the wolves. Belly-sliding to a good time on the weekends makes up for a workweek at a desk, and meeting Corey adds a whole new level of fun to snowboarding.

It’s easy to slip away for time alone in the woods without raising suspicion, but how’s Lon to entertain himself when bad snow and a worse spill force them off the mountain too early?

Never give an otter a box of Cheerios.
