As the Review Chair for a Paranormal Review Guild, I am so happy Paranormal is coming back into style….And Shifters are a thing again…!!!


I had just finished a prequel for LE Franks new series Chew Toy, her new vampire series Fang Club coming out soon and lo and behold I found this little short story that fit the bill for a few hours!!

I never thought of a squirrel shifter, but in the paranormal universe everything goes I guess.


We meet shifter Jamie going up to the family cabin with his adopted brothers. Jamie was adopted into a big cat family and his brothers tear him unmercifully…


Sawyer is out on the mountain when he runs into a big cat who chases him, finally has him running up a very tall tree. Stuck there until the cat leaves, Sawyer realizes he cannot get down.


An adorable story of trust and possibly love on the mountain…..
